The two oils: Extra Virgin Olive Oil Coconut Oil Other ingredients: Vitamin E Oil Brown Sugar Fragrance Oil Coffee Grounds Dark Brown Sugar
and ¼ cup sodium hydroxide to start the saponification reaction with the oils
I slowly poured the NaOH into ¾ cup of water (the red pitcher) and heated the oils and let those cool down until they both reached around 110 - 120oF.
I poured the NaOH solution into the oil mixture and blended those until they reached a thick trace (it has a pudding like consistency).
Here I mixed in a small amount of the coffee grounds, brown sugar, and several drops of the fragrance oil and vitamin e oil.
Seventh and eighth pics:
I poured the mixture into the soap molds (turned out this recipe only made five bars; so that means I’ll probably double it in the future each time I make a batch).
Next time I make this type of soap im adding some cocoa powder to make it darker.
I’m gonna post pics of the hardened soap bars tomorrow; cause they’re supposed to become solid by then, then I’ll let them cure for 3-4 weeks before I think of selling them on etsy (idk if ill sell this particular batch cause i want to make them darker, maybe i will who knows)
Cries this took so friggin long…. Needed a pic of my full oc squad so here they are! Im probably going to make a sideblog for my splatoon content since its kind of flooding my main, could be some more of these guys n maybe a little askblog stuff? Idk yet. Ill post bios for them at least.
