Here are my newest Cold Process soaps. There are all castile, (65% olive, 34% coconut 1% grapeseed) i use a tiny dash of grapeseed oil for the vitamin E


This one is guava with cranberry seeds


Coconut lime with no coloring


Watermelon bubble gum with cranberry seeds. my favorite, by far.


Lime essencial oil with only the green coloring.

Thank you so much! I've been out of oils for WEEKS and just about killing my boyfriend.
I have realized that soap making is the one thing i can take everything out on, and put myself into. I love it! Each bar really is made with whatever emotion i need to release at the time!

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

It does mean 100% olive oil, but most people now can't stand the lack of lather (pure olive oil does not fluffy lather make!) so they add other oils in. So most people call soaps castile, because of their high olive oil content, but they're not technically castile.

Semantics, ftw! Grin
