Rosewater + Pink Clay Soap
Pink clay, rosewater and Himalayan pink salt come together to make a super pretty-in-pink clay soap bar that makes a great gift.
Yield: 6 bars
Cut the soap base into small cubes and place them in a microwave-safe bowl (always check that it says “microwave-safe” on the bottom to be sure). Microwave in 15- to 30-second intervals until it is fully liquefied but not overly cooked (this will totally change the texture).
In a separate small bowl, combine rose water with clay and salt. Stir until the clay has dissolved completely.
Add rose water and oil to the melted soap, and stir vigorously until the mixture thickens. It may take a minute or two for this to happen.
Pour the soap mix into the mold, and let it harden. If you don't have a soap mold, you can simply use a food storage container or milk carton instead. Once the soap mix has cooled inside the mold, remove it and cut into bars—whatever size you desire is fine.
For best results, let it cure overnight before using.
Your soap should last up to 6 months. Feel free to halve the recipe to make fewer bars, if needed.
