1 fl oz TherapyGarden™ Aloe Vera Gel Whole Leaf
½ tsp TherapyGarden™ Arrowroot Powder
4 oz TherapyGarden™ Melt & Pour Premium Goat’s Milk Soap Base
2 oz TherapyGarden™ Melt & Pour Silky Shea Butter Soap Base
1 tsp TherapyGarden™ Kaolin Clay
¼ fl oz TherapyGarden™ Calendula Flower Extract
¼ fl oz TherapyGarden™ Lavender Essential Oil (or EO of your choice)
One Decorative 8-10 oz mug (Dollar Store, Target, Bed Bath & Beyond, Wal-Mart)
Pre-measure your ingredients and have them ready. You’ll want to work fast so that the soap base doesn’t skin over before you’re ready to pour.
Mix the Aloe Vera Gel and Arrowroot Powder together. Blend well.
Melt the Goat’s Milk and Shea Butter soap bases together in a microwave-safe glass measuring cup (Pyrex).
Add the Kaolin Clay to the melted soap base and whisk until thoroughly blended.
Add the Aloe Vera Gel/Arrowroot Powder mixture, Calendula Extract and Essential Oil.
Blend thoroughly and immediately pour into mug(s) or molds and spritz with rubbing alcohol.
Packaging idea: Tie a shaving brush to the cup handle with raffia or a luxurious satin cord (depending on the cup design) and shrink wrap for a professional finish.
Yield: One 8- to 10-ounce mug
