I was sure different types of olive oils would create variations of pale to dark green hues, but who knew that Pure Olive Oil Soap could be so WHITE?
I used regular olive oil mixed only with water and lye. The result is a beautiful milky and creamy bar gentle enough for baby.
I have also read a few bloggers grate this Castile soap, mix it with rose water and coconut milk to make a very silky shampoo. Recipe here.
I can’t wait to give this to my baby niece!
- 100% olive oil
- lye (NaOH)
- run it through my fave soap calculator to get the amount you want
- unmold after it is hard enough to slice
- cure for 4 – 6 months
