This fantastic palm free homemade soap recipe uses Shea Butter, Coconut Oil, Olive Oil, Castor Oil, Lard and Coconut Milk to create a luxuriously creamy, conditioning, lather.
With it's lovely delicate rose scent, this soap is perfect for the woman of the house. It's not overpowering and is decidedly feminine.
Should you be unable to find a nice rose fragrance oil or wish to keep the scent natural, simply replace the fragrance oil with Rose Geranium Essential oil or Lavender Essential Oil. Both will work equally well and smell wonderful.
**Something to note, Rosewood is now on the endangered species list but you can buy an essential oil blend from New Directions Aromatics that is all natural and formulated to smell as close as possible to Rosewood.
