Hemp and Sea Clay Cold Process Spa Soap

This gorgeous Sea Clay soap and is featured in our new Formulating with Clay Book.  It is scented with the unisex scent, Lavender & Cedar, which is perfect for this type of soap.

Although this is a fairly simple Cold Process Soap, it's best to have some experience before making clay soap.  See Instructions for Making Cold Process Soap from Scratch here.  

This batch makes one full Silicone Column Mould plus two large single bars of soap, or you can use a loaf mould and you won’t need the extra mould cavities.  If you have not worked with discounted water cold process soap, take extra care when mixing the Lye and Distilled Water as the mixture will be quite concentrated.
