How to make Melt and Pour Soap with Green Tea | Procedure
(1) Put the melt and pour soap base and the dye in a bowl and (2) melt them in a microwave (30 sec.) or in a water bath.
(3) Add Shea Butter to the melted soap mixture and, when it is completely homogeneous, (4) pour in it also the content of a green tea bag. This will act as a gentle scrub for our hands while the Shea Butter will act as a moisturizer and nourisher for the skin.
Once the mixture is completely homogeneous (5) pour it into the plastic soap mold and (6) keep it in the fridge for a couple of hours. The presence of superficial bubbles can be removed by spraying rubbing alcohol 🙂
