glad tidings to the strangers
This time round we made some Fenugreek and Argan Oil soap using a Glycerine base. You can use opaque (white) Glycerine, the soap in the pictures was made using transparent (clear) Glycerine. If you’re using the opaque soap base you can still follow the instructions as they remain the same and the rest of the ingredients don’t change either.
Fenugreek has numerous health benefits, it is used to treat arthritis, asthma, sore throats, acid reflux, balancing cholesterol and much more. I’ve used it in soap as it cures skin problems by healing wounds, rashes and skin inflammation.
Argan Oil was added into the soap for its moisturising properties but also as it’s a natural anti-aging solution and helps with problem skin (good for eczema, acne and psoriasis).
Ingredients & equipment:
– 175 grams of Clear Glycerin (SLS, SLES & Paraben free glycerine can be bought here)
– 1/2 teaspoon of Organic Fenugreek Powder
– 1/2 teaspoon of Organic Argan Oil
– silicone mold tray (the mold is really up to you and how you want your soaps shaped but bare in mind that the whole soap content will have to fit into it so as not to be wasteful)
– microwaveable jug
