yummy organics

We've made this rose bud soap previously, but this time decided to re-create the soap using mostly organic oils and coloring the soap naturally.

We wanted this soap to be creamy, so we made it with coconut milk. It's also made with organic soybean oil, organic coconut oil, organic olive oil, organic cocoa butter and palma christi oil. At trace, some ground rose hip and elderberries were added. The fragrance is fantastic, using rose absolute and a smidge of one of our most favorite fragrance oils that smell like a big bouquet of lush red roses!

It turned out nicely. :)

peace~love and petal power!

  2. A beautiful SOAP, as natural color is wonderful, a very elegant SOAP.

  3. With the coconut milk, do you use it in place of water or do you add it in addition to water?

  4. Patrice, yes. I used two cans of coconut milk and added just a little bit of distilled to bring the total weight of the water up to where it needed to be for the batch of soap.

  5. Cool! I'm going to try this, and I'll give all the credit to you:)

  6. lol, no need! Someone showed me! ;)
    I do this same thing with the beer soap, use that instead of water...but use flat beer. Lye doesn't like all the bubbles in the beer. Found that out the hard way!
