Sage &ACV face soap

Notes:

Fill a half-pint or jelly jar about 1/4 to 1/2 of the way with fresh sage, then fill the rest of the way with apple cider vinegar. (If using dried sage, fill 1/8 to 1/4 of the way with dried herb instead.) Infuse for at least one day or up to a week, then strain for use in this recipe. 

For variety, try using thyme, yarrow or rosemary infused vinegar instead. (All 3 of these could be helpful for acne-prone skin.)

Make the lye solution with just the distilled water. Stir 2tsp chlorella into the lye solution while it’s still hot.

Add 2oz infused vinegar to the lye solution after it has cooled, then blend the lye solution/vinegar mixture with the warmed oils.
