I'm still trying to come up with a palm free recipe that I'm satisfied with. I was looking at a couple of older recipes I did in the past and realized I wouldn't make them again. One batch was a little too soft for my liking...the other batch was plenty hard, but I used a lot of cocoa butter and the soap left a waxy feeling on my skin.
I did some tweaking and came up with two more recipes (one of them I haven't made yet, I just have the recipe printed out). Here is the first one...I used cocoa butter again, but cut the amount in half. I'm hoping this turns out to be a good one!
For the scent, I used sweet orange essential oil. For oils and butters, I used olive oil, coconut oil, rice bran oil, cocoa butter, castor and shea butter. I also added in 2 teaspoons honey, 1.5 teaspoons white kaolin clay and 1 teaspoon ground oats.
