- - a teaspoon of mint leaves, a teaspoon of mint broth.

- - 8 drops of peppermint essential oil.
- - 1 teaspoon of shea butter (not necessary, but it has excellent protective and moisturizing properties, which has a beneficial effect on the skin).

Cooking Mint Soap
Pour a teaspoon of mint with hot water, insist, filter. In the soap you will need to add one teaspoon of the finished broth. Cut the soap base into cubes and place in a container.
After the container is sent to the microwave, for about 30-40 seconds until the cubes are completely dissolved. Cover the container with cling film. Be sure to ensure that the base does not boil!
Add one teaspoon of sea buckthorn oil and one teaspoon of mint decoction to the melted soap base. Both oil and broth are natural dyes, so our base changes its color to golden.
A teaspoon of shea butter is put. Stir until dissolved. A teaspoon of dry mint is added, everything is thoroughly mixed. The final touch is adding drops of peppermint essential oil. Gently drip and mix. Now our soap base has acquired a very interesting shade.
The resulting thickened liquid is poured into our mold and left until solidified. Approximately a soap man needs about an hour to get a solid form.
So - an hour has passed. We take out the soap from the mold and you can enjoy the masterpiece created by yourself!
Soap fragrant with freshness of mint, like a light breeze, gives the body lightness and a sense of flying. Not for nothing that in ancient times, mint was considered an exquisite aphrodisiac and an elixir of youth.
