Recipe:

  • 100% olive oil
  • water
  • lye (NaOH)
  • run it through my fave soap calculator to get the amount you want

At trace, add:

  • 6g per pound of oils cinnamon sugar fragrance, optional

Use an old cardboard box lined with a plastic bag as a mold:

  • make sure you only pour a thin layer for the “toast”
  • sprinkle ground cinnamon on top for decoration, but not too much as cinnamon can be a skin irritant
  • sprinkle with pieces of grated white soap or baking soda for the powdered sugar effect
  • unmold after 24 – 48 hours
  • cure for 4 – 6 months
