When I was cleaning out my soap corner I remembered that I had this soap curing on top of a shelf almost out of sight. It has to sit there a year and I didn't want to be tempted.
I was tempted however. It's been 9 months and I think it's time to give this Aleppo soap a try.
As awful as that sounds it's one of my favorites. At $35 a bottle, the oil you make it with is a real luxury and I used two bottles for this batch. The long cure is to harden it up. It's made from all soft oils-only olive and laurel berry, so it takes its sweet time. It has no added coloring or fragrance. It's as all natural as you can get.
It's been a long time since I've been able to test out a new soap. This is so exciting.
