Recipe Directions

  1. NOTE: If you are making these products for sale, good manufacturing practices recommend a hairnet, gloves and a mask. We also recommend a clean apron.
  2. Place 5 oz. Olive Oil – Extra Virgin, 1 TBS Rosemary Botanical and 1 TBS Peppermint Botanical in double boiler. Simmer for 2 minutes. Turn off heat, cover and let steep for 2-2 ½ hours.  Strain oil and place in glass jar. This recipe only calls for 1 TBS of infused oil. The remaining infused oil can be stored for use in other projects.
  3. Weigh 1 lb. Shave & Shampoo MP Soap Base. Cut into 1” cubes and place in microwave safe bowl/measuring cup. Heat in microwave for 30-60 seconds, stir and heat again in 30 second increments until all soap is melted. 
  4. Add 2 TBS Lathanol Powder and whisk vigorously until dissolved.
  5. Add 1 TBS Olive Oil Infusion, 10 mL Rosemary EO 714 and 5 mL Peppermint EO 712. Stir until all oils are mixed into the soap. 
  6. Add 8-10 drops of Stained Glass Forest Green Liquid Color and stir to evenly distribute.
  7. Place mold on cookie sheet to provide stability. Pour soap evenly into all 3 cavities. Spritz tops with alcohol to pop any surface bubbles. Set aside until soap has hardened.
  8. Unmold and wrap with plastic wrap to prevent sweating. Label and enjoy.
  9. To Use: Lather soap in hands and gently massage into hair and scalp. Rinse and follow with conditioner. Style as usual.
