Brittni’s Mint HP/CP Soap – Lana Suhanich

This it the mint soap I used for Brittni’s wedding party favors… I changed it up a little as I was running short on tallow.
  • 15 ounces soybean oil
  • 12 ounces olive oil
  • 12 ounces coconut oil
  • 8 ounces tallow
  • 1 ounces castor oil
Run thru a soap calc to get your lye and water amounts 🙂

I steeped a peppermint tea bag into the water portion then put it in the freezer to cool..
Once slushy I added my lye to it.   Go slow.  The lye may react with the peppermint quickly so pour
slowly and stir constantly.   Once mixed you may notice it turn a reddish brown.  This is normal for some
peppermint teas.
I also emptied the left over peppermint herbs into the melted oils.
Proceed with your preferred method.  Cp or Hp..  With Hp you will want to keep your eye on it due to the essential oils in the tea.
I also used spearmint eo for fragrance
