The stick blender is primarily for mixing the soap so that you can get the right to thicken it to the right consistency. This is something you won’t be able to achieve by hand.

How To Make Sea Moss Soap

With everything in check, let’s dive right into how we can make the perfect sea moss soap recipe. It’s straightforward to make in your home, and all you need to do is follow the information correctly.

1. Rinse the sea moss in a bowl of water repeatedly until the water is clear. Typically, the sea moss comes very dirty and salty inside its packaging, and we don’t want any of that with the soap.

You will need to rinse it thoroughly to get rid of all the dirt and salt from the sea moss before you can move on to the next step.

Ensure the water you use in rinsing the sea moss is clean and distilled or spring. You can stop rinsing when the water is completely clear.

2. Soak the sea moss in clean distilled water and leave it to soak overnight. Ensure the water in the bowl covers the sea moss and no string is left out of the water.

The next day, you will notice that sea moss will expand and soak the water. If you don’t like to leave it overnight, just make sure you let it sit in water for up to 12 or 24 hours.

3. After soaking, get your high-speed Blender ready and add the soaked sea moss into it without pouring the water away.

Now, blend the sea moss at high speed. Pour in some of that water inside the high-speed Blender because we need the sea moss to have a smooth baby food constituency.

Continue adding the water when necessary until you get a very clean smooth baby food consistency.

4. Get your measure cup to mix the soap. Add in all your melted oil and butter with the right amount into the measuring cup.

Also, pour in your Lye inside the melted oil and butter ad mix continuously with a spatula or a spoon.

5. Now, get your stick blender and blend the melted oil and butter at low speed until it thickens. You won’t be able to achieve this if you decide to mix the melted oil and butter by hand.

Here you can pour in the blended sea moss, essential oils, and French cream clay to change the color and blend until it thickens to condense milk constituency.

6. Now, pour your soap into the soap mold until it is filled up. You can use a stick to draw out your favorite design on the top of the soap you poured in the mold.

Also, you should spray some rubbing alcohol all over the top of the mold to seal in the botanicals and prevent soda ash from forming on it.

7. Dry the sea moss soap in the mold for up to 24 hours to solidify it. Make sure you keep it away from dirt to avoid contaminating the whole thing.

8. Once it is dry, get your soap cutter and cut the soap as you please. Make sure you place the sea moss soap correctly on the soap cutter to not cut it wrong.

Once you cut the soap, you can stamp it if you have a branded stamp laying around.

An there you go, you have successfully made a sea moss bar soap.
