HAPPY GARDENER




This is my version of a gardener's soap. They are usually soaps that are effectively cleansing, scrubby and yet moisturizing. This one has only natural ingredients (except for the NaOH of course). The greenish colour comes from french clay and the scent comes from beeswax and marigold petals. This is the soap that an organic gardener washes her hands with after a day of planting, pruning and weeding.

Recipe:
300g Coconut oil
240g Olive oil
176g Canola (rapeseed) oil
120g Shea butter
64g Beeswax

320 ml water
112g NaOH

3tsps Green Argiletz clay
3 tsps ground almonds
3 tsps pulverized calendula petals

Method:
Oven hot process
100 C for 60 minutes
