Pretty pretty! But I thought that castile meant 100% olive oil??

Really?! I see so many castile recipes that call for a few % other oils all the time. Someone told me it was anything with more than 60% olive.

I'm not really a history buff, but I do like finding out the background of stuff I'm interested in...and anything to do with semantics!

Echoing the compulsion to research semantics :-) Also, the watermelon soap is teh awesumz - the layering really sets it off. When I saw the thumbnail for this thread in 'hot new projects' I thought it was about pink cake!

...mmm...pink cake...

This is what I know from a book I have:

Castile soaps are from the Castile region of Spain where they used ONLY olive oil to make soap. This was discovered in the 1600's by an English guy (whose name escapes me) who was fascinated by people making soap without tallow. So traditionally and historically castile = 100% olive oil.

However the FDA requires that a soap be at least 50% olive oil to bear the castile name. So Dr. Bronner's Castile soap is NOT true castile soap, but it does meet the FDA requirements for castile.

Hence when you find so many recipes called "castile" that have other oils in them, like Neonpirate's.

Ain't history grand?!

The Guava and Watermelon-bubblegum ones look tasty. I'd try and take a bite then realize it's soap. xD
I bet the smell fantastic though!
