The soap

Anyway, back to the bogolan: the ashes are put in a vessel which has tiny holes in it, thus serving as a sieve. Water is poured over the ashes, and slowly seeps through into a bucket. The water that is thus gained is boiled until it crystallizes into pure postassium. This is when the Shea butter enters the stage and is mixed in. These two substances are then boiled and the soap is ready.
