LEMON VERBENA SALT SOAP

Recipe:
320g Coconut Oi
80g  Shea Butter
Water as 38% of oils
55g NaOH (=20% superfat)

300g Sea salt

Lemon Verbena FO

Methdod:
Cold process

This is a variation of the Pink vanilla salt soap which had 100% coconut oil, sea salt as equal amount as oils and 20% superfat. This has only 80% coconut oil and sea salt as 75% of oils. It is hard to say which one is better. This one is clearly not as sudsy as the 100% coconut oil. On the other hand this has more creamy and stable lather which I really like.

I used finer salt this time and cut when it was still hot, but the bars still came out crumbly. I think the only way to make decent salt bars is to use individual molds.
