Pour your olive oil castile into a heat safe mixing bowl.
Add one level teaspoon of borax and mix well. You want to mix and mix until the two combine into a thick goopy paste. If you remember the 90s toy Gak (aka slime) you are looking for that consistency. See the picture for the visual!
Now you add the boiling water and again mix well. The more water you add the thinner the viscosity you will create. I tend to like my soap a little on the thin side so I add close to half a cup of water.
If you are using any essential oils, now is the time to add them, stirring well after each addition.
Pour soap into glass or plastic jars. Let cool before usiing.
Soap will keep for up to 6 months.
Store soap at room temperature in the kitchen, bathroom, and laundry room. Prepared soap will keep for 6 months. If it separates, give it a little shake to mix ingredients again. Soap is safe to use after it separates. LivingBeyondAllergies.com
