I've been shaking up this bottle of nettle fused olive oil for over 6 weeks so it was time to turn it into soap. I kept it on the kitchen window so I wouldn't forget about it.
I used clay and charcoal to give it color and added a few drops of essential oils. I was looking for a medicinal scent. This summer I'm all about no nonsense soap that makes you feel like you got all the Covid cooties off.
It took 2 days of sitting in the mold before I could get it out. It's oddly soft. I did use twice the amount of olive oil and no hard butters so I should have expected it. It looks lovely and it smells just like I hoped it would. Now I just have to wait 6 weeks to see if it's a keeper.
