In this recipe I based myself in the Traditional Castille Soap. The Homemade “Castille” Soap Recipe is not the original one because I added coconut oil. The real Castile Soap has only olive oil, what takes more than 2 weeks to be unmolded and around 6 months to cure.
To avoid all of the waiting time (I am too anxious to wait all that time!!!) I’ve created this recipe with a blend of coconut oil and olive oil what will help to let the soap stiffer and has a creamy and richer foam!
If you want to know how I made this soap, I have a video that shows you the process step by step:
