Salt Soap

Savon au selI have never tried making a salt soap before, but I have recently read so much about the benefits of sea salt that I was really content that my next challenge was to create a sea bar. Internet is really a great thing when it’s about gathering info and thanks to some blogs, I gathered the necessary  info and I was ready to try this special soap. And of course,  Amy’s recipes helped me a lot to understand what would be the best for a soap containing salt. My first try was a white rose with 100% salt of oils, made of 80% coconut oil and 20% castor oil, using an individual mold. My second try was with less salt (75%) , and the same quantities of oils and I have cut it after 1h of baking in the oven. For the colour, I used spirulina which I simply adore and I decorated my soap with some Himalayan salt🙂

I can only say that I can’t wait to try this salt bar!

Thank you Amy for giving us this opportunity of learning about salt soaps.

  1. Congratulations on your first salt bara! I can’t wait to hear your comment when you start using it! The coloring your used is so lovely. Think I need to try some spirlina, yours is really pretty!

  2. Wonderful green with spirulina ! Spa bars are so great I think you will enjoy it. I love to shampooing my hair with this kind of soap. It boots my curls. I love your pics too. I think it ‘s hard to take pic of soaps.

    • Multumesc Geta! Verdele a fost si mai intens cand l am taiat, insa pozele le am facut dupa cateva zile si cumva se vede ca sarea s a si uscat . In fine, e un sapun ‘sanatos’, ma bucur de asta😉

  3. to use Himalayan salt is great idea!!! I love Himalatan salt, I usually use it to cook, but I want to try for soap too🙂

  4. am intrat sa vad ce mai faci, ce ai mai facut si am dat de frumusetele astea care arata super bine si ca bonus ma duc cu gandul la mare, la nisip, la plaja:)

  5. I need time more than I usually have to look through your blog throughout! I love this green and it’s so pricey here and it’s granulated,not powder. Do you find the salt bar good for face? I’ve been reading lately about it being good even for dry and sensitive skin . What do you think?

    • Yes, Maja, the salt bars are my favorites and I did use them for face (and also as shampoo bars). They are good, just try them, and let me know what you think about them.
