THE HOW TO >
What You Will Need:
- 1 & 1/2 cup natural vegetable glycerin soap base (or 3 bars of glycerin soap such as Pears)
- 1 teaspoon Tea Tree Oil (here I'm using Apothecary Extracts Pure Australian Tea Tree Oil, a very potent and sweet tea tree essential oil perfect for this soap project)
- A tea box or soap molds
- Wax paper, optional if using the tea box method
- Wooden sticks such as chop sticks, again optional if using the tea box method
How To Do it:
1) If using the tea box soap mold method gently line the box with wax paper making sure there are no tares. Lay the chop sticks on top. This will help prevent the rope from moving or slipping too low down inside the mold.
Be careful when pouring into molds as hot liquefied soap in no fun on skin (kinda akin to burning melted cheese on a pizza!).
3) Pour soap into molds making sure rope knots are well covered. Keep on a level surface until hardened then further cure in the freezer.
4) Pop out of molds or peel away cardboard from the tea box and wax paper, cut into two bars of soap and you're done.
