Yields1 Serving

Ingredients
 30 ml Tea Tree Oil
Equipment
Equipment (Supplied by You)
 1 2L Pyrex/HPDE Jug (or microwave safe alternative)

1

Chop your soap base on a chopping board, into cubes and place them into the jug. The cubes should be around 1-2cm on each side.

2

Place your jug into the microwave and heat on 30 second bursts until fully melted. Stir every couple of busts and watch your soap carefully to avoid spills. Be careful as the soap can get quite hot.

3

Place the jug on a flat clean working surface free of pets/kids and add 2 teaspoons of activated charcoal and 30ml of tea tree oil. Stir carefully to avoid a plume of charcoal dust!

It can take some time to incorporate fully but be patient and keep stirring.

4

Place you mould in a safe, undisturbed place and pour the soap base into the mould.

5

Wait for an hour or two for the soap to harden fully.

6

Unmould your soap loaf onto a clean chopping block. First, loosen each long side of the mould and allow air to break the seal all the way to the base of the soap. Do the same with the short sides. Turn the mould upside-down and slowly ease the soap out. Once you notice the seal on the base being broken, the soap will begin to come out. Be patient as this process can take some time.

7

Carefully chop your soap into 8 bars. You can use a ruler to mark the soap bars out or you can do this by sight.

8

Immediately wrap your soaps in the cello bags and seal using a ribbon/raffia or sticky-tape. Enjoy!
