Sunflower and Honey Soap

This is one of my best sellers!  If you make soap try this recipe, if you aren’t a soaper have fun reading the recipe– you’ll appreciate how great this soap really is.  Sunflower oil is very moisturizing and contains vitamins A, D & E making this an extremely conditioning soap.

I infuse the olive oil with calendula petals, that way even more of the anti-viral and anti-inflammatory properties of the calendula are incorporated into each bar of soap. Calendula is also one of the few plants which is considered astringent despite not being high in tannins, making this a great all-over body bar.
