Dead Sea Mud Soap

When you make soap, you get to be more interested about remedies and ways of maintaining a healthy body and skin. One of these ways is using natural ingredients like herb/flower powders, clays and mud. If I have to choose one soap ingredient, without any doubt it would be mud. When I first tried Black Sea Mud in soap, I was really impressed by the spa qualities of the soap that I had to make more of it. Especially I noticed its effect on a problematic skin, so I can tell you from my own experience that mud is a precious ingredient which you can use over ad over again. I could never be bored of mud that’s why I tried it in soap, facial mask and body scrub. When some months ago I received some Dead Sea Mud, I was really happy. It’s been some time I was dreaming about trying this ‘exotic’ mud and it was a good occasion especially because I was almost running out on Black Sea mud.Dead Sea Mud SoapDead Sea mud is said to have several benefits as: detoxifying the skin, stimulating the blood flow; being so rich in minerals (such as sodium, chloride, magnesium, potassium, iron, calcium), it nourishes the skin; it is useful for treating skin conditions, such as psoriasis, eczema/dermatitis; it is also useful for treating rheumatic conditions, such as rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis. If you make soap, you have to try this magical ingredient, you will simply love that soap!

    Clays and muds are indeed awesome in soap! Love the beautiful gray color you achieved. How much mud did you add and did you add the mud into the oils before the lye?

    1. mijnzeep1 says:

      Silvia, I added it at trace…but can’t tell you how much as I never use to weigh…(i love clays and muds, and sometimes I put too much, i know, that’s why such a dark color).

  5. Marika says:

    Everybody is making dead sea mud soap and I have still not been inspired even if I have had the mud for almost a year. I have to soap soon! I like your design with the blue and yellow petals. Did you use only mud for the dark part or some additional colorant? I´ m just asking because I like the dark color.

    1. mijnzeep1 says:

      I believe we make best soaps when we are inspired…I see a lot of salt soaps around and still haven’t made one :). I put too much mud maybe( the soap is also kind of hard, but I like it), Marika, nothing else for color than mud.

      You can check in pharmacies/natural shops, Maja, sometimes you can find it there too.

    I use Dead Sea Mud in soap for year and I can tell you that it is one of my most wanted soap. I combine it with activated charcoal and it makes nice combo. I really like how your soap turned out and picture is gorgeous!

    1. mijnzeep1 says:

      It sounds great, Gordana, to combine mud and activated charcoal, I will have to try it once too.

  9. Dead Sea mud sounds wonderful and your soaps are certainly incentive to try it. I love how you made the top a different colour and the flower petals make for a gorgeous topping.
