This salt soap recipe or 'spa soap' is wonderfully creamy, and while it has a high percentage of coconut oil and salt, it also has a high super fat to counteract any drying effects.
Decorated with grated bits of bright blue/green soap and filled with fine sea salt, it feels like using a foaming polished stone to wash with. Quite intriguing!
The addition of titanium dioxide gives the soap base a solid white backdrop to show off those pretty blue green bits and it is scented with the bright, crisp aromas of Lavender, Eucalyptus and Rosemary.
