1   Weigh the soap base. You will need 100 g soap base per finished bar of soap. You can melt the soap base either in a water bath or in a microwave when it is cut into 3 x 3 cm chunks. Melt in the microwave at 80% power with 30 second intervals and stir between each interval to prevent heat damage. We recommend you use gloves because the soap base gets hot and because the essential oil is very concentrated.

8   Carefully make a hole in the middle approx. 1 cm from the top edge using a knitting needle or similar. Support the bar of soap on the back to prevent it from breaking. Cut a 50 cm piece of natural hemp, feed it through the hole and tie a knot; one by the soap and one a bit higher up, forming a loop for hanging.
