Oh yes, that’s making your very own kratom soap, folks!
The recipe is quite simple, and you can also customize it as per your preferences. We will follow the soap making procedure with standard glycerin.
Head over to the step-by-step guide given below to make your experience worth remembering!
The step-by-step guide to making lavishly appealing kratom soap
first of all, make sure you have the following ingredients in the mentioned amount:
- Glycerin: You will need 2lbs of molten glycerin. Make sure it is equal to your soap’s volume.
- Essential oils: Take one cup of palm oil, coconut oil, or olive oil. Don’t forget that the oils that seem to be thick when it comes to their room temperature state will create a hard soap bar compared to the thinner oils.
- Kratom powder: You must have 6oz of high-quality kratom powder of your choice.
- Other botanicals: If you like the jasmine and lavender scent, go forward and add it to your soap solution. Moreover, you can also add other essential oils (if they are not already present in soap base formulation, must read the ingredient list) and dry flower petals.
Step#2 Precautionary measures
Although the method is relatively safe to perform, it is always wise to take precautions. So must get done with the measures mentioned below before kicking a start.
- It would be best to use a newspaper or some other porous material to avoid the spilling of any ingredient.
- It is essential to protect your hands, so a rubber glove is a must-have.
- When you pour hot liquid, you must pour it at a distance to keep your eyes safe. You can also use your preferred eye protection like glasses.
- Keep your children and furry friends away when you prepare the soap. They might get hurt with a hot boiling solution.
Step#3 Kick a start by melting glycerin
- Now, cut the glycerin bar into smaller chunks. If you have a double boiler, then you are good to go. Melt glycerin in it, you will notice the complete molten form of glycerin at 115℉.
- Just in case you don’t have a double boiler, work out with this alternative method!
- Take a large container and one smaller container. Fill the larger container with some water and place the smaller one inside it. Now put it over a medium flame and melt the glycerin chunks in the smaller container. The glycerin is completely dissolved once the consistency and texture are smooth and even. Easy, No?
Step#4 Let us arrange the soap molds
Although people widely use silicone soap molds to make soaps at home. You can easily opt for these alternative options if you don’t have a silicone soap mold.
Once you have decided what mold you will use, cover it with a thin layer of alcohol so that the soap solution does not bubble when you cure it.
Step#5 Adding the essential oils
Once the glycerin melts completely, add your go-to essential oils and keep stirring while you add them. So here comes your evenly-balanced soap solution. It’s time to turn off your double boiler or a stove flame.
Step#6 adding kratom and dried flowers
Now add your favorite kratom strain and meanwhile stir slowly. In the end, add your preferred dried flower petals like lavender or jasmine.
Step#7 Filling the molds
So here comes the much-awaited step, filling your molds. Be very careful while you shift your soap solution into the molds as it is scorching hot. By the end, spray a bit of alcohol at the top. It will help avoid the formulation of air bubbles, and that’s how you can save your kratom soap solution from ruining.
Step#8 Curing process
Lastly, you have to cure your kratom soap by putting it in a dry and cool place. The kratom soap may take a few days to become rigid.
Cut the cured kratom soap into bars and store it for future use!
