Elderberry Soap

Vliersiroop zeep

We drink this juice regularly during the cold season, because it seems to boost the immune system. But it’s worth drinking elderberry juice often because it contains a lot of  bioflavonoids which are known to be the most effective antioxidants for the prevention of human cell damage. I have never made it at home,  but I was curious to see the colour we can obtain from it in soap.  Elderberry Soap

Soap made of black elderberry juice, Brassica rapa ( Canola) oil, Vitis vinifera (Grapeseed) oil, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) oil, Olea Europaea (Olive) Fruit Oil, Ricinus communis (Castor) oil, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter, Elaeis Guineensis (Palm) Oil, Prunus dulcis (Almond) Oil,  (Salvia sclarea ) clary sage Essential Oil, Geranium  (Pelargonium graveolens) Essential Oil , Lavender (Lavandula latifolia) Essential Oil.

    Natalia, cum se numesc in romana aceste fructe? nu am reusit sa ma edific din poze … Imi place foarte mult culoarea pe care ai obtinut-o! Un sapunel foarte frumos, ca de obicei 🙂

      Suc de soc se numea, desi eu stiam ca socul arata alb si nu mov inchis. Uite si aici http://ro.wikipedia.org/wiki/Soc_negru. Te am pupat!

    N-am stiut ca exista si soc cu fructe negre. Partea maro ai obtinut-o cu acest suc? Ti-a iesit minunat sapunul si ce mult imi place cum l-ai fotografiat asa in zapada, foarte original. Pupici !

    Foarte frumos sapunul tau, deosebit ca de obicei, intr-adevar florile socului sunt albe dar fructele sunt mov 🙂

    Lovely soaps, Natalia! I love the two-toned layers and the berries on top are a beautiful touch!

    While I was a kid, I thought the elderberry was toxic. I suppose someone had told me so. Actually I’be never tried these berries, but I hope they can transfer some of their quality to soap. Is that colour brown? The soap looks so creamy and yummy with both warm colours!

  11. I’ll have to keep this in mind. I’ve been hoping to get some elderberry bushes myself.

  12. That color is from the juice? It’s gorgeous and gives a very natural color to the soap. =)
