New creation in the Etsy shop: Handmade tea tree and Dead Sea mud soap

ea Tree and Dead Sea Clay

Handmade tea tree & Dead Sea mud soap in the Emmet Street Creations store on Etsy

A few months ago, I bought a little bag of Dead Sea clay powder and I’ve been itching to use it in a soap recipe. To turn the Dead Sea powder into Dead Sea mud, I simply added a bit of water, mixed it well and added it to my soap batter, along with tea tree essential oil, once the oils and lye emulsified.

The end result is a luxurious bar of deep-cleansing soap. Castor oil and coconut oil give this bar a fluffy, long-lasting lather and the Dead Sea mud provides plenty of slip, which makes it great for shaving.
