How to make Beldi from baby soap
Real Moroccan black Beldi soap is made by hand from alkali and olive oil and adding of eucalyptus leaves. Its consistency reminds moldering butter, is easily applied to body, softly and deeply cleansing your skin and activating microcirculation of lymph and blood in the skin as well (this property of Beldi is used during anti-cellulite procedures). Rather laborious and lasting process of making natural Beldi may be significantly simplified, by making it from common baby soap. Very often at first having tried Beldi made from baby soap, many people decide to make Beldi from scratch according to original recipe.
- Baby soap – 3.53 oz (100 g)
- Water – 5.29 oz (150 g)
- Olive oil – 1.06 oz (30 g)
- Eucalyptus leaves – 1.76 oz (50 g)
- Eucalyptus essential oil – 0.21 oz (6 g)
We grate baby soap on a grater
Pour it over with water and put on a water bath. You may pour soap flakes over with water in advance (for 3-5 hours before making the soap) – in such a case it will melt quicker on a water bath.
Occasionally stirring it we wait for complete dilution of soap flakes. You should get a mass, which in consistence is similar to thick sour cream.
While soap flakes are melting, we prepare eucalyptus leaves.
Mill them in a coffee-grinder.
The milling should be as fine as possible.
And we sieve it, so that to remove large and coarse particles, which will be able to damage skin while using Beldi.
When soap flakes turns into a homogeneous soft mass, we add olive oil and mix everything thoroughly.
Add powdered eucalyptus leaves; stir them until we get a homogeneous mass.
We should get a mass, similar to softened butter.
Add eucalyptus essential oil, mix everything up once more and put it into a container with tight fitting lid.
It’s better to store Beldi from baby soap in a fridge, little by little displacing it into a separate container used in a bathroom.
Despite its not very attractive look, the effect of Beldi is already seen after one use. Being applied to the skin preliminary steamed in a bathhouse or in a shower, the soap foams with the help of a brush with natural bristle or special mitten and is washed off in 3-5 minutes with warm water. The skin after such procedure becomes very tender, smooth and elastic. With regular use of Beldi the state of greasy and problematic skin improves, pores are cleaned, complexion becomes better.
- Beldi may be used as a soft scrub to cleanse face skin (don’t apply to skin around eyes).
- You should use only dry eucalyptus leaves to make Beldi. If using fresh raw materials mold may quickly occur in a soap
