Most of Granny’s soap are made with cold process, which allows the infusion of herbs in the soap without the heat going beyond the flash point of the herb’s essential oils, this way, the good stuff doesn’t disappear while the soap cooks.
Before starting the soap making process, the first step is to infuse the oils with herbs. Dry herbs are placed in a mason jar in a sunny location for 4 to 6 weeks and swirled multiple times a day. Once the infused oil is ready, the soap process can begin.
A precise recipe is followed and about 2 hours later the soap mix is poured into the molds. The molds are placed in a warm room for 24 – 36 to harden. Next, the soap is removed from the mold, sliced, and placed on a rack to cure for the next 4 to 8 weeks (depending on the ingredients of the soap). A lot of time goes into making the perfect bar of soap.
