• Day Eleven - Vitality Shave Bar

Day 11 of #12DaysofWyndmereDIY brings you a gift that is sure to delight the man in your life. We’ve created a shave bar with luxurious foam that not only works great but has such a cool aesthetic you’ll want to leave it out for all to see. 

Let's get to it. You can adjust the amounts of all ingredients according to your size mold. Our mold yielded about 5 bars.

Here is what we used
-4 bars of our Vitality Bar Soap
-1lb of melt and pour soap base
-2 teaspoons charcoal powder
-15 drops Lime essential oil
-15 drops Cedarwood essential oil
-soap mold

Step 1

Break up the “melt and pour soap” base. We used an organic goat’s milk soap. Place the melt and pour soap base into a double boiler and melt. Once melted, remove from heat and add the charcoal powder and essential oils.

Step 2

Cube or chop all four bars of Vitality bar soap with a large kitchen knife. (Warming it slightly may help.) Place the Vitality soap pieces into molds neatly and thoughtfully.

Step 3

Pour the charcoal soap mixture into the molds over the Vitality soap squares. Once filled, you’ll want to jiggle or tap the bottom to make sure it evenly distributes itself amongst the cubed Vitality.

Step 3

Let cool.

Step 4

Remove and cut (if needed) into the desired shape. That’s it! Wrap and gift. We just know he’s going to love it!
