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.
Time: Takes approximately 10 minutes, plus cooling time
