Here is my first London fog recipe I made up.
- Olive oil
- Coconut oil
- Distilled water
- Lady grey tea
- Vanilla bean
Different ways I infused the flavors this time. Inspiration from lovingsoap.com I infused the olive oil with a vanilla bean and a tea spoon of tea. I used a mason jar and placed it in a crock-pot for about 3 hours on warm.
|Bringing Lard, Coconut Oil & Olive Oil to the right temp (~115 degrees)|
|Prepared Cups with Lavender pods.|
|Distilled water steeped with Lady Grey tea.|
I boiled the distilled water and made some tea. I let is cool and strained out the tea before I added the lye.
The mixture of oils made the soap come to trace really quickly, and it should create a nice bubbly bar of soap.
I also, measured out the finished soap into 2 oz.portions this time. I used the lavender as a little embellishment.
Will post more once soap is cured.
