Kratom Soap Recipe
This is a simple and recipe enriched with nourishing herbs. Kratom can provide a great exfoliating texture along with antibacterial properties to your soaps. Feel free to experiment with other herbs that you like to use for skin care! This recipe will yield a 2 pound batch of soap which will make approximately 10 bars, depending on how large they’re cut. If you wish to incorporate other ingredients or increase the size of the batch, use a soap making calculator to determine the appropriate amounts of water and lye. These calculators are available online for free. If you wish to add a scent, incorporate ½ – 2 ounces of essential oil when the soap is at trace. The herbs are optional and can be omitted for a pure bar of soap.
Notes: Reserve a special pot, mixing containers, and other tools especially for soap. Never use aluminum pots or utensils as they will react with the lye.
Important: Weigh all ingredients on a scale. Soap measurements are done by weight, not by volume.
NOTE: Always add lye to water, and not the other way around. Adding water to lye may cause a bubbling “volcanic” reaction, increasing the risk of an accident or injury. If you splash lye onto yourself, immediately flush the area under running water
