Pure Olive Oil Soap Gentle Enough for Baby

31 Aug

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!

Recipe:

  • 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
