Be the first to review “Handmade Orange Patchouli Soap Bar”

A large majority of people have never used handmade soap before. In fact, most people have never used soap before. Wait…what? If you look at commercial products sold in stores, it’s likely you won’t find the term “soap” on the package. Commercial soap sold in stores is often made with chemical detergents, hardeners and synthetic lathering agents. Some of these ingredients can be drying or irritating on the skin. On the other hand, handmade soap created with oils, liquid and lye does not contain these harsh ingredients and qualifies as ‘soap.’



Cold Process Soap Making is the act of mixing fixed oils (eg. Olive, Coconut and Palm Oil) with an alkali (Sodium Hydroxide or Lye). The result is a chemical process called saponification, where the composition of the oils change with the help of the lye to create a bar of soap.



In some simple steps, making of handmade soap goes like this – Firstly, the lye is mixed with water. Then the oils are mixed and heated. Once the oils and lye-water mix are at 95-105 degrees, they are mixed together in a separate bowl. If the temperature is lower, then the soap will be crumbly. On mixing, as the mixture becomes lighter in colour and thick, the herbs or other additives are combined and poured into moulds.



The moulds are covered with plastic wrap and wrapped again in a towel. After 24- 36 hours, when the mixture is cold and firm, it is taken out on parchment paper and cut into whatever shape you like. The soap has to cure for 4 weeks or so with turning every week. After 4 weeks, the soap is ready and needs to be stored in an airtight container.



Handmade soaps use essential oils derived from plants and natural colorants like clays. Other natural ingredients, like milk and purees, can also be added to handmade soap. You won’t find those quality ingredients in your bar of store bought soap. In addition to colour, a lot of these naturally occurring ingredients have qualities of their own which gets added to soap. Beetroot and green tea powder contain anti-oxidants, carrots contain beta-carotene, chlorophyll has deodorising qualities, coffee and cornmeal are exfoliating and rose is high in vitamin C”



Handmade soap also contains glycerin. Glycerin is a humectant that attracts moisture from the air to the skin. It’s produced naturally during the soapmaking process. It’s one of the things that make handmade soap so amazing! The one thing in homemade soap you can’t substitute is “Lye”. Lye is Sodium hydroxide, which “must be 100% and in crystal form only”. But once the lye reacts with the oils in soap (Saponification), it gets completely dissolved and in the finished soap, there is no lye” A Cold Process technique allows you to customise every single ingredient to suit your personal preferences. You can add whatever ingredients you like and let the creativity flow. Although this is a longer process, but the amount of creativity possible is immense.
