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.
