What you’ll need:

24 oz. unscented cold process soapA large kitchen with a marble island, grated
1 oz. shea butter
1 oz. cocoa butter
1 oz. walnut oilA kitchen with a sink and a toaster oven
2.25 oz. bourbon whiskey
.85 oz. Tobacco Caramel fragrance oilA kitchen with a sink and a toaster oven
.25 oz. pumpkin seed oil
1 Tablespoon marshmallow root powder
1 Tablespoon bronze mica powderA room with a ceiling fan and hardwood floors

6 steps:

  1. Use a digital scale to weigh out the grated soap, shea butter, cocoa butter and whiskey and combine in a large pot over low heat on the stove.
  2. Mix occasionally until all ingredients are melted together then allow to simmer a bit longer to burn off all of the alcohol from the whiskey.
  3. Weigh out the walnut and pumpkin seed oils and stir into the mixture.
  4. Next, use measuring spoons to measure out the marshmallow root powder and bronze mica. Stir into the soap until completely incorporated.
  5. Lastly, weigh out the fragrance and stir into the melted soap. Remove from heat and quickly spoon the soap into all of the mold cavities and set aside to cool.
  6. When hardened, pop out of the molds and allow to set for a few days. Enjoy!
