Vanilla Chai Soap Recipe
Here is how to make this quick and easy vanilla chai soap recipe.
Yield: 6 bars (in suggested mold, others will vary)
Time: approximately 10 minutes, plus cooling time
- 1 of pound goat’s milk melt and pour soap base
- 1 tbs loose chai tea, if you have bags, simply open a few
- 1/2 tsp vanilla essential oil (oleoresin)
This is the mold I use for many of my projects, including this one.
- Cut the melt and pour goat’s milk soap base into pieces adds the loose chai tea.
- Microwave for 40 seconds. Stir and repeat in 10-20 second intervals just until soap is melted. It melts fast!
- Remove from microwave and stir several times before adding the vanilla essential oil. The goal is to keep the soap liquid, yet cooled a little so some tea leaves will remain suspended in the soap bars and the vanilla scent will not dissipate too much from heat.
- Pour the vanilla chai soap mixture into the soap molds and allow to fully cool before removing from molds.
