1. Measure your ingredients


2. Make the lye solution by adding the sodium hydroxide to the water. Mix well.


3. Heat the oils. When the temperature of the oils and the lye solution reach between 100-110 degrees F, add the lye solution to the oils and blend with hand mixer.


4. When the mixture is well combined, add the clay and essential oil.  It's best to mix the clay with some of the oils in the recipe (but I forgot this time)


5. Mix well with the hand mixer until you reach trace.
