avocado soap

I made two batches of avocado soap...one scented and one unscented.  Both batches have avocado puree and avocado oil in them.  For the puree, I started out with my blender and added a little distilled water...didn't work at all.  What worked to get the avocado nice and smooth was using my stick blender.  Here's a picture of the pretty green puree:

This is the scented batch and it turned out a slight green...the top layer has ground parsley in it.  The oils used in this batch are olive oil, palm oil, coconut oil, avocado oil, shea butter, castor oil, and of course, avocado puree. 


unscented avocado bars

It's hard to tell from the picture, but the bars have a greenish tint to them.  If I hold them next to my oat milk and honey bars, they definitely look greener.  But in this picture, they don't so much. The oils and butters used for this batch are olive oil, coconut oil, avocado oil, cocoa butter, shea butter, and castor oil (this is a no palm or tallow recipe).
