A delightfully natural, moisturizing and softening soap with delicious scent

Ingredients:

1 lb. any melt & pour soap base
1/4 cup clay of choice (I use Morrocan red & kaolin)

1 tbsp. high oleic sunflower seed oil
1 tbsp. vitamin E, 1000 IU oil
4 drops mandarin essential oil
3 drops spanish lemon essential oil

Instructions:

Melt soap base and lanolin together. Completely blend in all oils. If using more than one type of clay, separate soap into equal portions and blend one type into each portion, making sure to get all clumps. Pour into molds, allow to harden. If using more than one color of clay, pour first type into mold, allow to cool until slightly thicker but still liquid, then pour other type to fill.

Customer Testimonial

"Each time I use your Web site, I am thrilled with how complex and thorough the information is and yet how intuitive and simple the site is to use. I do the majority of my shopping online and work as part of a huge global company's knowledge distribution arm, so I review and use lots of sites. The FNWL site is the best I have encountered from a consumer prospective. It must take an incredible amount of resources to maintain and I just want to say thank you for going to that level of effort! I have learned so much from reading the detailed product information and loved the items I've purchased. Thank you!"
