Bubble Tea Inspired Cold Process Soap (DIY)

Hey guys! Bubble tea seems to be all the craze these days, so this week we will be doing a lot of ‘tea’ ranges. 

today’s recipe will be for a bubble tea inspired cold process soap. In this recipe we added neroli essential oil, basil, sage and mint essential oil and almond oils to an oil mix with distilled water. 

An oil mix is the combination of olive, coconut, castor and palm oil and has many benefits to your skin. For example, olive oil is rich with antioxidants and is a great antibacterial. This helps reduce acne (the one with pus), and has an anti-aging effect due to its moisturising abilities, making your skin look super healthy and radiant. 

Neroli oil reduces inflammation of the skin and also has antimicrobial properties. In addition to that, it also has a pleasant aroma. In addition to having anti inflammatory properties, basil, sage and mint essential oils is also rich with antioxidants, which is anti ageing agent. 

Almond oil is rich with Vitamin E which keeps your skin healthy. However, if you are allergic to nuts; you can elimitae almond oil frm the recipe.

Finally; we Add yellow iron oxide and titanium dioxide mica to replicate the color of the bubble tea. 

To make it aethetically gorgeous, we added melt and pour soap balls made the day before using ice molds which will act as the bubbles in the tea.
