Directions:
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 and workspace.
  1. To top pan of double boiler, place 5 oz. Olive Oil, 1 tablespoon Rosemary Botanical and 1 tablespoon Peppermint Botanical. Add water to bottom of double boiler and bring to a boil. Let mixture simmer for 2 minutes. Turn off heat, cover and let steep for 2-2½ hours.  Strain oil and place in glass jar. This recipe calls for 2 tablespoons of infused oil. The remaining oil can be stored for use in other projects.
  2. To microwave-safe measuring cup, add 32 oz. of cut up Shave & Shampoo soap base. Heat in microwave in 30 second increments until all soap has melted. 
  3. (We recommend using a mask when working with lathanol powder.  It is a very fine powder and becomes airborne very quickly.)
  4. Add Lathanol Powder, one tablespoon at a time, and whisk vigorously until dissolved.
  5. Add 2 tablespoons olive oil Infusion, 20 ml Rosemary EO and 10 ml Peppermint EO. Stir until all oils are mixed into the soap. 
  6. Add 10-15 drops of green liquid color and stir to evenly distribute.
  7. Place molds on cookie sheets to provide stability. Pour soap evenly into all 6 cavities. Spritz tops with alcohol to pop any surface bubbles. Set aside until soap has hardened.
  8. Unmold and package as desired in airtight packaging.
  9. Label product accordingly. 
To Use: Lather soap in hands and gently massage into hair and scalp. Rinse and follow with conditioner. Style as usual.
