Making Kratom Soap
Kratom soap is a great choice for those who are looking for new kratom products to try. Here are the ingredients that you will need to get started. This is just one recipe you can try, we are sure that there are dozens available on the internet.
- Glycerin Soap Base 2 pounds
- 1 cup of carrier oil (olive, coconut, or palm) For those oils that are solid when stored at room temperature these will produce a harder soap product.
- Kratom powder 6 ounces
- Add in botanicals of your choice. Dried flowers can add a nice touch. You can also opt to add in some essential oils to provide you with pleasant aromas.
- Begin by melting down the glycerin. This can be done in a double boiler. Melting will begin at about 115 degrees Fahrenheit. For those who do not have a double boiler, you can simply place one pot inside the other. Continue to heat until it reaches a smooth consistency.
- You will want to prepare your soap molds. These can be bought almost anywhere or you could use silicone bakeware as an alternative. Some have even used baking sheets or cake pans. It all depends on what you have and how you want to make your soap. Give your soap mold a rub down with some rubbing alcohol. This will help keep the soap from bubbling as it is curing.
- Now it’s time to add your carrier oil. You will want to put it in slowly while you are constantly stirring. This will give you the balance you are looking for. Always scrape from the bottom of the pan as this will ensure all the oil is evenly distributed.
- Remove your mixture from the heat.
- Slowly add in your kratom powder. Be certain to stir as you do it. At this point, if you wish to add any essential oils or dried flowers you can do that as well.
- Add your mixture to your molds. Continue to stir as you are filling them. The sediment of dried plant matter can be added to the top of each mold. Once all the molds are filled, spray the top with rubbing alcohol to help prevent air bubbles from occurring.
- Put your soap in a dry and cold area where it can cure for at least 24 hours. Be aware that soaps made with olive oil may take longer to harden.
You will want to be aware that soap bases can vary. Some will be packed with nourishing oils, while others you may have to add your own in. Just be aware of what is in your soap base so you know what to skip when it comes to ingredients.
