I started to make shave soap which is really fun and exciting! I use bentonite clay to create the gray color which also creates slip for the razor.
Ingredients: saponified organic olive oil and organic coconut oil, Balsam Fir essential oil, olive leaf powder, bentonite clay, charcoal, water.
I think this may be my absolute favorite soap I have made so far! The layers of color remind me of a sunset in the forest and smells like a warm woodsy aroma with a hint of citrus.
In order to achieve the different colors I infused annatto seeds with olive oil for light yellow and deep yellow/orange. The bottom two layers is olive leaf powder, and natural brazilian clay for colorants.
I began experimenting with different scents and colors in small batches and this is a new soap I made. I call it sherbert because it is sweet and citrusy with grapefruit, lemon, and sweet orange. I used three different natural brazilian clay colorants: pink, yellow, and red.
Ingredients: saponified organic olive oil and organic coconut oil, grapefruit/lemon/orange essential oil, pink/yellow/red brazilian clay, water.

My new soap is a face soap that has tea tree essential oil and charcoal. I also added colloidal oatmeal which helps with dry, itchy skin. The charcoal pulls the dirt and oil out of the skin and the tea tree can help with acne to psoriasis. I also added olive leaf powder which adds a very gentle exfoliant.
Ingredients: olive oil, coconut oil, tea tree essential oil, colloidal oatmeal, olive leaf powder, charcoal, sodium hydroxide, water

I received a custom order for an Anise loofah soap. I just bought a new loaf mold that fits about 16oz which is the equivalent to four bars of soap. With this order I cut the loaf in half so each bar is about 8oz with a loofah sponge embedded!
Ingredients: olive oil, coconut oil, loofah sponge, anise essential oil, sodium hydroxide, water
I decided to begin using charcoal in some of my soap because of the beneficial properties. Charcoal is known to extract dirt and oil from your skin pores. I made this lavender cold process soap soap that is half charcoal.
Ingredients: olive oil, coconut oil, charcoal, purple brazilian clay, levender essential oil, sodium hydroxide, water
