Here's a handmade soap recipe specifically made for those who adore the scent of black licorice.
Sambuca Rose contains Anise and Sweet Fennel essential oils along with a hint of spice, citrus, and rose for that added twist.
If you want a little less licorice and a bit more 'twist' try reducing the Anise and Sweet Fennel to 1/4 teaspoon each and increasing the rose scent to 5 teaspoons.
This recipe contains palm oil. Should you prefer to make it palm free, simply replace the palm oil with your favourite hard oil such as shea butter, cocoa butter, mango butter, lard or tallow and run the recipe through a lye calculator to obtain the correct amount of sodium hydroxide (lye) needed.
