Special Ingredients2 teaspoons sodium lactate, 1 tablespoon Moroccan red clay powder, 1 tablespoon Indian healing clay powder (calcium bentonite), a cotton ball sized puff of Tussah silk fiber, .15 oz. dark patchouli essential oil, .35 oz. dragon's blood fragrance oil, .6 oz. ancient sedona fragrance oil, .2 oz. eucalyptus essential oil (Nature's Truth brand).
Dissolve silk in hot lye water. Add the sodium lactate to the cooled lye water mixture. Add the lye water to the oils and bring to a trace. Stir in fragrance oil. Split batch into two and mix in clays to each, then swirl and pour into mold. Cut the soap bars and let cure for 4 weeks before using.
The scent is complex and at first seemed like too much, but give it a few weeks to mellow out and its a great man soap. The dragon’s blood has an incense smell that adds a subtle deep complexity that is enjoyable and no overpowering once it has mellowed out.
