Illite Clay, better known as French Green Clay is mined from quarries. The quarries can be anywhere from 100 to thousands of feet!

French Green Clay includes many elements that are very important for your health such as magnesium, phosphorous, silicon, silicon, calcium, manganese, selenium, iron, dolomite, copper, silica, and potassium. Did you know that French Green Clay is sometimes also called “marine clay?” This is because the quarries it is mined from are actually found sometimes in ancient marine beds!

French Green Clay has a very high absorption rate and is awesome at working to detoxify the body. It can be used in many common bath and body products such as soaps, bath bombs, feet deodorizing treatments and even mineral baths. French Green Clay actually contains decomposed plant material which makes the clay very healthy and nutritious for the skin. It has many medicinal benefits for the skin such as being used in soap recipes to help cleanse and exfoliate the skin. It also helps to relieve sunburn, shrink the size of pores, remove any impurities from the skin, stimulate blood flow and it also gives the skin a nice glow. French Green Clay has even more medicinal benefits though! It can detoxify the body of harmful toxins that cause digestive problems, headaches, fatigue and even food allergies.

I would like to introduce our new free recipe for our Frankincense and Myrrh Soap! This Christmas soap is made with the thoughts of the three wise men in mind! If you remember the story of the baby Jesus, the three wise men all traveled to see him toting three special gifts. Gold, frankincense, and myrrh. This soap is a gorgeous way to pay homage to that special holiday story!

 

Ingredients:

85 grams Mango Butter

510 grams Palm Oil

510 grams Olive Oil Pomace

510 grams Coconut Oil 76

85 grams Castor Oil

243 grams Lye

6 grams Myrrh Gum Powder

2 drops Orange Oxide FUN Soap Colorant

4 Loaf Silicone Soap Mold

645 grams Distilled Water

Safety Glasses

Safety Gloves

Safety Mask

Crockpot

Mixing Spoons

Mixing Bowls

Scale

Stick Blender

 

Directions:

There are actually 2 parts to this soap, you will start out by preparing the rock portion first. In a bowl, weigh out 34 grams Castor Oil, 204 grams Coconut Oil 76, 204 grams Palm Oil, 34 grams Mango Butter, and 204 grams Olive Oil Pomace. Turn the crockpot on low, and heat all of the oils until they are completely liquid.

While you are waiting for them to melt, weigh out 97 grams of lye and 258 grams of distilled water. Slowly and carefully pour the lye into the water and then stir. Never add water to lye! Then once the oils are melted, add the lye to them in the crockpot.  Use the stick blender to bring the mixture to a pudding consistency. Place the lid on the crockpot and allow to cook.  Make sure to keep stirring the mixture every now and then. Once it has reached the consistency of mashed potatoes, the soap is finished.

When the soap is finished cooking, divide it equally into 4 mixing bowls. Add 2 drops of Orange Oxide Colorant into one bowl, 2 drops of Yellow into one, 2 drops of brown into the third, and do not color the fourth bowl. Then, pour each bowl into a different part of the soap mold and let the soap sit to set up.

After it has set, break the soaps up into pieces and set aside to use later for the rocks.
