- Take a large and deep bowl and combine all the dry ingredients to begin with. Use a whisker to remove the clumps.
- In another bowl mix all the wet ingredients, and pour the coconut oil in it. Give it a good mix and leave aside.
- Now pour the wet mix into the dry mix and keep whisking for five minutes. The mix shouldn’t turn foamy or fizzy at this point, but if it does, you have added the liquid too fast. Hence go drop by drop as you whisk.
- When the wet and the dry ingredients have combined, with your palms take out a small amount and squeeze it together very gently. If at this stage you feel the lump in your hand is still a little powdery, go ahead and dab a little water to make it into a ball mold.
- Place the molds on a tray and keep them to dry for fifteen minutes. Do the same for the other side when one portion dries off.
- Let them rest for twelve hours or overnight, and when very dry wrap them in a plastic sheet and store them dry.
