which oils would make a good substitute for the grapeseed oil in your salt soap bar recipe?

Hi Cathy, I am going to give your salt soap bar a try. I just made your basic recipe. turned out perfect! Thank you so much for all your recipes and knowledge you are willing to share! :)


I was wondering If there is another oil I can sub in for the grapeseed oil in your recipe.

I don't make soap that often so I would expect it to go "bad" before I would use up the 7# jug I would have to purchase.

Any suggestions for a more readily available " wal-mart" oil?

Would peanut oil be the same for going rancid quickly in jug and in soap bars?

I was also looking at the sunflower oil. The soap bar would have qualities that are almost identical to your original recipe.

Not sure if I have to order this one or if I can pick up locally.
Thank you,

Answer:

Olive oil would be a great choice and readily available at Walmart. Peanut oil has too strong a smell for most people. I believe sunflower oil is available at grocery stores as well and might be a good choice.

I wanted to "second" your comment about Cathy's recipes. I've used two so far - the salt bar and the beer soap. Both came out PERFECTLY.

Good luck with your salt bar. I loved mine!!
