Please Note:  The Sodium Lactate is added to the lye solution once it has cooled.

For this recipe, you will want to add the Bentonite Clay Powder to the soap batter when it is at emulsion.  Then, stick blend to incorporate.  You will have to use a spatula to scrap the walls of the mixing bowl to ensure all of the Bentonite clay is incorporated for a smooth finish in your soaps.  When the soap is at trace and you are ready to pour, simply fill the basic circles.  Then, carefully tap the mold to release any air bubbles.  Next, heap the tops of the mold with the remaining batter.  Unmold after 24 hours.  (You may have to stick the molds in the freezer before popping the soaps out.)  Once the soap has cured, place one circle into each 8oz low profile jar and lid.
