Rustic Soap Challenge!
This is my entry for the April Soap Challenge for the Soap Challenge Club. The challenge was to create a rustic soap with minimalist packaging. I decided to go green! The soap is made with cucumber peel puree and nettle tea instead of water. It's 44.5% Olive Oil, 26% Coconut Oil, 5.5% Castor Oil, 5.5% Avocado Oil and 18.5% Sunflower Oil. I didn't add any essential oils and went with the earthy scent of the nettle and cucumber. Surprisingly, the cucumbery nettle scent did survive the cold process. It's very earthy and subtle. I did add a bit of French Green clay, but I think that most of the colour comes from the cucumber and nettle. I am really pleased with the colour!
