Here’s, we tell you some steps to make your own seaweed soap. First, you need to prepare all the thing you needed, such as melt-and-pour soap base, knife, stove, cooking pot, water, heat-proof mixing bowl, spoon, 2 sheet crumbled nori (seaweed), soap molds, and paper to wrap soap. After, you can follow the steps bellow!

Step 1 | Cut your soap base into blocks. Soap base is a pre-made soap ready for additives such as fragrance, color or herbs. The base may already be perforated to show you where and how to cut your blocks.

Step 2 | Fashion a double boiler by adding water to a cooking pot and bringing it to a boil. Place a heat-safe mixing bowl over the boiling water. This is a gentle way to melt your soap base without drying it out or burning it.

Step 3 | Add the soap base blocks to the mixing bowl portion of your double boiler, stirring often until the base is melted.

Step 4 | Mix two sheets of crumbled nori (the seaweed used to make sushi) into the soap base. The nori is dry and very easy to crumble using only your hands.

Step 5 | Remove the soap from the stove, allowing it to cool slightly (two to three minutes).

Step 6 | Carefully pour the soap into soap molds and allow it to harden. The soap should harden in about two hours.

Step 7 | Remove the soap from the mold, and store in a cool, dry, airtight container (sandwich bag or wrapped in paper).
