I've made salt bars before , but never hot process. Reason is I want to put in some lovely EO,s that I have. anyone tried this? Also I have some Shea butter and I would like to add that as the super fat. Should I not do this or stick to CO as the SF
Ok. I'll stick to just CO then 80%. And another soft oil for the 20%I also have done them HP. I increase the water a little and only use 35-50% salt. I would not use shea, butters are not very good in salt bars for some reason. My favorite recipe is 80% CO, 20% OO.
Thanks for that post. Very helpful. I'll use some heart moulds I have and a small batch so I can plop it in quickly.I've never done them HP. However, here's another post on the subject that may help.
