Sandalwood and Love Soap

BRAND: Danielle Helena
PRICE: $13

Despite what big companies advertise, castile soap (a.k.a. the most gentle soap for your skin and hair) is made using only olive oil and a lye solution. I wanted to spice it up a bit for this bar, so I snuck in some coconut oil for hardness and shea butter for its creamy lather, but it is still super gentle. I even added a low dose, earthy/uplifting essential oil blend to promote its antifungal properties for users with problematic skin. The resulting fragrance smells like a warm cup of lemon ginger tea. My curls enjoy this bar (because I always get compliments on shampoo days), but rinsing with diluted apple cider vinegar is recommended (especially if you have hard water) followed by my #ArtistsOnly Conditioner Bars.

Each bar weighs approximately 5 ounces.
