Botanical Soap

A new thing, which is proving to be a lovely craft and with lots of scope for creative ideas. I’ve started out using ready made soap base (£4.99 Hobbycraft, various types) and adding coconut oil and essential oils plus the fresh botanicals.

So far I’ve ventured into Dandelion Soap (with bergamot and clary sage oils) and Luscious Lime, made with fresh limes and bergamot oil. Also have made little cup cake soaps with cornflowers, clover and buttercups.

The next thing will be to make my own base. I will start with a lye mixture but would love to make a lye free soap. All the lye free recipes I’ve seen have palm oil in them, which I will not be buying or using. So I’m hoping I can try something with castor oil instead.
