Fusion basics: first you need to chop: cut into pieces with a knife or grate.
You must grind the base: cut into pieces with a knife or grate
Melting in two ways, but in both cases the basis is melted without direct contact with the stove. The first option is to do it in the microwave, the second melt in a water bath.
Melting the basis for the soap in the microwave
The secret to good soap is that the heat necessary to carry out up to the point, while base will not fuse.

Never it is impossible to prevent the base heated to 60-65ºC. Mirsovetov recommends to use the thermometer for liquids, to be able to control the process. In no event it is impossible to bring the soap to a boil, the soap will dry up and all the work will have to start again! If You melted the base in the microwave, we recommend every 30 sec to check the temperature.

Heated a large pot filled with water, place the pot, thus creating a steam bath. Him pour 2 teaspoons of carrier oil, add a teaspoon of vitamin E, the mixture is heated for about 7 minutes.Over time start adding the soap flakes, as soon as it starts to melt, add the same amount of hot water. All mix thoroughly, to ensure that the mass was solid, slightly reminiscent of hot dough, the pieces that don't want to disappear, remember a pestle or pestle, for making mashed potatoes.
Now you can add a tablespoon of the prepared petals and a few drops of essential oils that you use you decide to get the soap needed flavor.

Soap making can be very simple or you can make it as complicated as you like. The beauty of making your own soap is that you can make it with the ingredients that you choose and the fragrances that you like. Adjustments aren’t hard, but take some practice. Most all soap recipes use ounces or grams and ingredients must be weighed to get good results. I’ve found a way to simplify the process by converting the ingredients to cups and portions of cups. It’s much easier and you get the same results time after time. All herbal material must be dried. Lavender is popular, as well as chamomile. I love lemongrass and oakmoss, though not together. Use about ¼ cup of dried plant material per batch of this size. Essential oils are from plants. They come from the roots, stems, flowers or seeds. Fragrance oils can be blends of essential oils or they can be artificially produced. Be sure you know what you have. Most oils can be used at the rate of 15-20 drops or around a teaspoon per batch of this size.

Pumpkin Soap Recipe. Liquid & Lye Portion:4.19 ounces lye (6% superfat), 8 ounces distilled water. Oil Portion (30 ounces total):16 ounces olive oil (53%), 8 ounces coconut oil (27%), 3 ounces sunflower oil (10%), 3 ounces cocoa butter (10%). At light trace, blend in: 2 ounces canned pumpkin. Portion out roughly 1/3 of the batter in a small plastic container (I use a large recycled yogurt container.) Blend in 1 teaspoon vanilla absolute and 20 to 30 drops clove essential oil. (Adjust per your personal scent preference.) You can buy both of these items from Mountain Rose Herbs. Pour half of the pumpkin soap into the parchment paper lined mold, add the vanilla spice layer next, then top with the rest of the pumpkin soap. Cover and let sit undisturbed for two to three days. This is the recipe that I use.

Cinnamon Swirl Soap & Shampoo
35% olive oil
25% coconut oil
15% lard
15% shea butter
10% castor oil
Per 500g oils:
30g cinnamon essential oil
1 tbsp white kaolin clay
1 tbsp ground cinnamon
Follow my standard soap making instructions (calculate for a 6% superfat), allowing the oils and lye water a good 6–8 hours to come to room temperature.When the soap reaches a light trace, add the essential oil and clay. Divide the batch in two, and stir the ground cinnamon into one half. Pour the soap into the mold, alternating between the halves, drizzling to swirl.Let saponify in the mold for 24 hours before slicing and curing for at least 3 weeks.
