Stove Top Instructions:
1. Put a double boiler over medium heat. Once water is at a roiling boil, put your shredded soap into the double boiler. It will be quite full. Not to worry, this compacts way down.
2. Every five minutes, stir your mixture, moving the not-melted soap from the top of the mixture to the bottom of the mixture. You want to make sure that all the soap gets fully mixed into bottom of the pan, which is the hottest part of the mixture, to help achieve a smooth blend.
3. In between stirring sessions you can:
Prepare moulds always have an extra mould on hand just in case.
Prepare herbs, fragrances,essential oils,colourants or extracts now.
4. If after 30 minutes of stirring you see that your soap has not reached the desired consistency, add 2 Tbsp to ¼ cup of liquid (water or milk) to each 500g of soap gratings. Continue stirring every 5 minutes until soap has reached desired consistency.
5. When the soap is a good, thick, firm mashed potato type of consistency, add your fragrance/essential oil blend. You may also add colourant and other additives at this point. Stir until the fragrance and colour are fully mixed in.
6. Once your ‘goodies’ are fully incorporated, remove from heat.
7. Now spoon your soap base into moulds.
8. Lay a layer of plastic wrap or wax paper on top of soap and press the soap into the mould – you don’t want any air pockets – then smooth the surface for a nice, finished back.
9. Let soap cool completely then pop out of moulds.
10. If you have added extra liquid, let cure for a few days to a few weeks (depending on how much liquid you added) until hardened – this will extend the life of your soap.
