How to use rice in homemade soap. Natural beauty treatment with rice.

Rice has been known as a natural beauty treatment for centuries. Why not add it to your homemade soap? Incorporating rice into your soap is easy. There are several ways to do this. Here are two that I have incorporated into my soap recipes.

1) powdered, pencil line
    2) rice water as your liquid

Rice water is used as a gentle skin cleanser and toner as it contains vitamins and minerals that brighten, soften, tighten and shrink pores. Antioxidant rich to fight free radicals that damage skin and cause fine lines and wrinkles. Rich in vitamin E (think anti-aging).

How to make Rice Water: 
Briefly rinse your rice in warm water to remove debris.
Cover rice with cool water and allow to soak for 10-15 minutes. Vitamins and minerals from the rice will seep into the water turning it into a lovely, milky, natural skin treatment. Use this rice water for the liquid in your soap recipe. You can also use this as a gentle cleanser/toner directly on your skin. Simply splash it on several times, rinse and pat dry.
For another way to use your rice try my  DIY rice mask recipe.

How to do a pencil line with rice in your homemade soap:
Grind your rice into a fine powder, you can use a coffee bean grinder, food processor or magic bullet type appliance.  Pour part of your soap batter into mold, sprinkle powdered rice in a thin layer over soap then gently pour or spoon the rest of your soap mixture over rice. I emphasize thin layer of rice, if you use too much rice your top layer will not adhere.

The rice line will show up as a cream colored line. As you lather up, the rice properties disperse in your suds, making a lovely homemade soap into a natural beauty soap. 

Japanese Mochiko is a spa soap I created incorporating beautiful Jasmine rice flour.
Mochiko is Japanese for rice flower.
