600 gr. Olive Oil
600 gr. Coconut Oil
600 gr. Rice Bran Oil
200 gr. Sunflower Oil
280 gr. Lye
760 gr. Water (with 1/2 Tbsp. paprika added)
1/2 Tbsp. Cloves (ground)
1 Tbsp. Cocoa Powder
1.75 oz 5 Fold Orange Essential Oil
0.4 oz Cinnamon Essential Oil
0.25 oz Clove Essential Oil
Melt oils together in one pot.
Mix the lye into the water (with paprika) into another pot.
When both reach 80 degrees, mix lye/water into oils using an immersion blender.
After the light trace is reached, measure out 1/2 of the soap mixture and add the ground cloves and cinnamon to half.
Add in essential oils, distributing evenly between the now brown and orange soap mixtures.
Blend until a nice trace occurs.
Layer soap into lined molds. Gently swirl together with a knife, being sure to reach all the way to the bottom of the mold.
Insulate molds for 48 hours.
