Neem Oil Soap Recipe

Submitted By:

Kathleen of Burlington, WA

Summary:

A Very Healing Treatment Soap

Ingredients:

18 oz canola oil
18 oz olive oil
5 oz virgin coconut oil
4 oz palm
4 oz neem oil
2 oz sesame (to be reserved to mix with herbs & clay)
12 oz of liquid (I use distilled water made into an herb tea infused with: marshmellow root, comfrey root & calendula petals)
61/2 oz of lye (sodium hydroxide)
Herbs:
1 T Tulsi
1 t Tumeric
1 t basil
1 t comfrey root
1 T neem powder
1 T Bentonite Clay
1 T Fullers Earth
1 T each of essential oil of Sandalwood & Myrrh

Instructions:

Follow basic soap making instructions: Make sure the herb tea is cold before adding lye, cool to 100 degrees, add to warmed oils, (about 110 degrees) stir to a light trace. Add herbs and clay mixed with the two oz of sesame oil and blend well, then stir in essential oils. This recipe will make one dozen 5 oz (plus) bars. This has a powerful odor while making, but cures out to be a very pleasant, fresh smelling bar. (see info on the benefits of Neem, clays and herbs used) I can't seem to keep enough of this on hand!
