Chamomile Cold Process Soap Recipe
© Rebecca D. Dillon
14 oz. canola oil
15.5 oz. chamomile infused olive oil
(Read how to make an infusion.)
1 lb. 10 oz. coconut oil
13 oz. palm oil
4 oz. rice bran oil
10.5 oz. lye
22 oz. distilled water
1/2 cup strong chamomile tea
2 oz. organic chamomile buds
Follow your basic soapmaking instructions. Add crushed buds and tea at trace and mix well. If you’d like a scent in the final bar, you can also add some Chamomile essential oil. Recommended essential oil usage is 1-3% of the batch total.
To make chamomile tea, steep 2 heaping tablespoons of chamomile buds in 1/2 cup distilled water (that has been brought to a boil then removed from heat) for about 20 minutes. Strain.
