  • 150 grams cocoa butter
  • 50 grams coconut oil
  • 50 grams shea butter
  • 50 grams almond oil
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice 1 tablespoon
  • 125 grams castile soap
  • 2 tablespoons Argiletz white clay
  • 5 drops Lavender essential oil
  • 5 drops Lemon essential oil


  1. Add the cocoa butter, coconut oil, shea butter, almond oil and lemon juice to a bowl
  2. The bowl should be placed on top of a saucepan without the base of it touching the water
  3. Set the saucepan of water to simmer gently and melt the waxes and oils, heating to (no more than) 60 degrees celcius
  4. Add the soap to the oils and blend with a stick blender until the mixture thickens. You will see from my image that it looks like it is filled with air bubbles. It has the texture of thicken cream.
  5. Add the clay and the essential oils and stir to combine
  6. Pour into a steralised container/jar and use within a few weeks

Recipe Notes

I let the mixture sit for a week prior to using.
