On the first episode of tutorial Saturday, we'll be making this handmade shaving soap. This recipe will take about 30 minutes to make depending on the tools you have to make it.
- Foaming Bath Butter - 2 lbs
- Bentonite Clay - 2 Tbsp.
- Chamomile Extract Oil - 1 oz
- Olive Oil - 4 oz
- Tobacco & Bay leaf fragrance oil - 0.2 oz
- Large Container - 2 quarts mixing bowl will do the work!
- Mixer - either a hand mixer or a stand mixer, i used a stand mixer
- 8 plastic jars, this recipe will yield about 8 jars if the jars are 4 oz each.
Now that we have all the tools and ingredients lets get started!
Step 1: Whipped the Foaming Bath Butter
Add all theFoaming Bath Butter (2 lbs.) to the large container. Use the stand or hand mixer to whip for about 1 minute until it's fluffy.
Step 2: Add the oils and fragrance
In a separate container weight 4 oz of Olive Oil. Add 1 oz of Chamomile Extract and add 0.2 oz of Tobacco & Bay Leaf fragrance oil. Then add all the oils into the Whipped Bath Butter.
Step 3: Whip to Combine
Whip the mixture for 2 minutes until all the oils are fully combined. Every 30 seconds stop the mixer and use the spatula to scrape the sides of the container.
Step 4: Add the Bentonite Clay
Add 2 Tbsp. of the bentonite clay. Carefully stir the clay with the spatula before turning the mixer on (otherwise all the powder is going to fly all over the place). After mixing the clay into the mix with the spatula turn on the mixer on low and gradually increase the speed.
Step 5: Last Whip
Whip the mix for 2 minutes until the clay is fully mixed and the shaving soap has a light and fluffy texture.
Step 6: Spoon Into Jars
Spoon the shaving soap evenly between the jars. Depending on how much air is in the mixture, this recipe will fill 8 jars.
