Olive Oil Soap

Real Olive Oil Soap seemed a little hard to find, so I began making it.  It has been made the old-fashioned way with lye.  There is a reaction between the oil and the lye that neutralizes the lye and makes soap. 

Olive Oil soap is great for wet-felting as it is low-sudsing and slippery -- both good characteristics for the felting process.  You can grate it, or use the bar itself.  This type of soap has a fairly hard bar.  Handmade soap retains natural glycerin, a byproduct of soap-making that is taken out of commercial soap.  Glycerin softens the skin.  I've added a little coconut oil to make this a more luxurious bar if you want to use it as hand soap.

Each large bar weighs 125 grams (4.4 ounces), and has the words "olive oil" with an olive branch. We have scented and unscented.  The scented bar has the fresh, clean scent of lemon grass essential oil.
