Aloe vera soap was on my ‘to do’ list since some months. My will was to make a soap using the fresh aloe vera plant and not the gel/juice which can easily be found in shops. We had an aloe plant back at home which was really old and growing too big and when my mother came to visit us this year, she brought it to me. I have never tried this plant in soap, but I am addicted to this plant and I am using it a lot.
Aloe vera has a long history as a safe and effective internal medicine and external skin care emollient. With a high water content of nearly 96%, this plant called also ‘Fountain of Youth’ or ‘First Aid Plant’, has been hailed as a medicinal plant with many beneficial properties.
Soap made of: coconut oil, avocado oil, olive oil, castor oil, linseed oil, palm oil, cacao butter, goatmilk, fresh aloe vera and cajeput essential oil or white tea tree essential oil for its sweet but penetrating smell.
