How about you try something new and exciting by making your own DIY blue nila soap with glycerin?
Glycerin is a natural humectant that helps to moisturize and hydrate the skin, making it an excellent ingredient for soapmaking. Blue nila powder, on the other hand, is a natural pigment that gives soap a beautiful blue hue and has a subtle, calming fragrance.
In this article, we’ll show you how to make your own blue nila soap using glycerin soap base, blue nila powder, and essential oils. Whether you’re an experienced soap-maker or a beginner, this recipe is easy to follow and produces luxurious bars that you’ll love to use and share.
- Glycerine soap
- Blue nila powder – Special for skincare applications
- Lilac essential oil
- Lavender essential oil
- Large pot
- Measuring spoons
- Large wooden spoon or similar for mixing
- Soap molds
Steps: Blue Nila Soap Recipe
Before we start, ensure that the soap molds are cleaned with water and soap, sanitized with medical alcohol 70%, and dried. Let’s start.
1- Add 400 grams (14.11 oz) of cut glycerine soap into the beaker.
2- Melt the contents of the beaker in a hot water bath (bain-marie). A hot water bath is done by placing the beaker in a larger pot of hot steaming water. This will gradually melt whatever is inside the beaker without causing it to burn. As the contents melt, make sure to mix every now and then.
3- Add 5 grams (0.18 oz) of blue nila powder to the beaker.
4- Mix the ingredients for 20-25 seconds using a large wooden spoon.
5- Add 5-10 drops of lilac essential oil.
6- Add 5-10 drops of lavender essential oil.
7- Mix the ingredients together for 5-10 seconds.
8- Pour the mixture into the soap molds. You should do this quickly before the mix hardens in the beaker.
9- Wait for the mixture to fully harden in the soap molds.
10- Take the soaps out of the molds and you’re all done!
Usage: DIY Blue Nila Soap
You can use the blue nila soap to wash your face, body, and hands.
For your face, start by wetting it with lukewarm water. Then, take the blue nila soap and gently rub it on your face in circular motions. Avoid rubbing it too close to your eyes. Finish by rinsing your face with water and patting it dry with a towel.
When it comes to washing your body, start by wetting your skin with water. Next, lather the soap in your hands and gently scrub your skin with it. Focus on areas that tend to get dirty or sweaty, such as your feet and underarms. When you’re done, rinse your body with water and pat it dry with a towel.
Finally, for your hands, the same procedure applies. First, wet your hands with water and lather the soap. Then, scrub your hands for approximately 10-20 seconds, and finish by rinsing them dry.
