8.5 oz. Water
8 oz. Olive Oil
11 oz. Canola Oil
9 oz. Coconut Oil
1.6 oz. Lemon Essential Oil
.5 oz. Lavender Essential Oil
.5 tbsp Ground Vivify CBD Black Tea leaves (I recommend using a spice grinder )
1 tbsp. Dried Ground Mint Leaves
4 oz. Lye (a note of caution: this is a substance that can cause burns and one should not expose skin to it nor should one inhale it directly. Please work in a well-ventilated area and keep away children)
Digital Food Scale
Large Plastic Bowl
Heat Proof Plastic Spoon
Start with making sure you have your goggles, mask, and rubber gloves already on yourself and protecting you then you may advance to measuring ingredients. Measure out all your ingredients on a scale. Next, pour 8.5 oz of water into a measuring pitcher and then sprinkle 4 oz. of lye into the tater. Keep gently stirring for up to a minute until the lye is fully dissolved. Cover the mixture with foil and allow it to cool to below 123 degrees F.
While you wait for Lye and water to cool mix Olive Oil, Canola Oil, and Coconut Oil together in a separate bowl. Microwave this mix for about 2 min. Allow the coconut oil to melt completely. This bowl of oils must also be given time to cool below 125 degrees F.
Use your time to line the soap molds with parchment paper and tape the sides so the paper does not fall.
After both mixtures have cooled below 125 degrees F but are still above 100 degrees F you may mix the lye solution and oils using a blender set on low. Blend until the soap mixture thickens and you start to see trace (pudding consistency that leaves marks on the surface when the blender stick is lifted out of the bowl ). This should start to form around five minutes of blending.
Next add in Vivify’s CBD Black Tea (grounded), grounded mint leaves, and any desired essential oils. Then you will want to mix until oils and herbs are fully incorporated
Carefully pour the soap mixture into the molds. You will want to even the surface of the soap with a spatula and tap the molds a couple of times on the counter to get rid of any pesky air bubbles. Place your molds to sit undisturbed in a cool, dry place for 24 hours before moving on to the next step.
De-mold your soap, cut them into the desired shape, and place them on a parchment-lined surface. Please wait about 4 days before using your soap.
