Equipment for Making Your African Soap
- Mortal and Pestle
- A storage container
- Measuring spoon
- Kitchen scale

Ingredients for Your African Soap
- 500 g Black Soap
- 1 Tbsp Oat Meal Powder
- 1 Tbsp Rice Powder
- 2 Tbsp Lime Juice

- 1 Tbsp Sulfur Powder
- 3 Tbsp Lemon Juice
- 2 Tbsp Coconut Oil
- 4 Tbsp Honey

Procedure for Making Your African Soap
- Using your kitchen scale, measure your black soap and transfer it to your mortal.
- Add your lemon juice. Pound slightly so that you don’t get a spill
- Pound slightly and mix until you have a soft and almost fluffy (haha I don’t know if that’s the right word for soap) consistency
- Melt your shea butter on a double boiler before adding it to your soap
- Add the rest of the ingredients one at a time and pound till they incorporate
- After, transfer your DIY African soap into your clean storage container.
Application of Your African Black Soap
- Use twice daily – in the morning and at night
- You can use it as your face mask if you have acne or pimples on your face.
- Add your choice fragrance to it. I prefer you incorporate a tea tree oil (1 tsp is all you need for that). You can also use lavender essential oil for a nice, mind-calming experience.
- You may substitute coconut oil for any other natural oil
- If you don’t see lemon juice, make do with lime juice. Yes, you’ll have to increase the quantity
- Skip any ingredient you’re allergic to.
