This is one of my best sellers. It's made from a melt & pour base and people love it because of the scent and the fresh coconut it contains. It makes a great summer treat for feet.
- First, grate the coconut into flakes. Fresh coconut is best but you can use packaged (which is already grated). Toast the coconut in a warm oven until it is golden brown and a little crunchy. Watch carefully to make sure you don't burn the coconut. When it is golden, remove it from the oven and allow it to cool. Grind it in a grinder or food processor. Set aside.
- Chop the melt & pour base soap into chunks and melt it over a double boiler. Stir slowly until it is nearly melted. Remove from heat.
- In a separate container, melt the mango butter. Pour the melted butter over the melted soap base. Then, sprinkle the coconut on top. (The coconut will soak up most of the melted mango butter which will help prevent formation of a film on the underside of your bars of soap.)
- Add the fragrance oil last and stir it all together. It will begin to cool and thicken. Once it is thick enough for some of the coconut to suspend throughout the base, pour it into individual molds. I use 4.25 ounce molds. Not all of the coconut will suspend in the soap; some of it will sink toward the bottom. This is OK because it will work itself into the soap as it is used.
- For molds, you can use molds designed especially for soap if you'd like. I use Dole Fruit single serving cups, which make a nice and inexpensive bar that is easy to handle in the bath.
- Happy Soaping!!
