The base of the recipe is Dr. Bronner’s Pure Castile Soap. Bronner’s says, “Our soaps also contain hemp and jojoba oils, which mirror the natural oils in the skin’s sebum, thus imparting a wonderful after feel once the soaps are washed away.”

The head of Dr. Bronner’s Magic Soaps, David Bronner, has been a key player in Oregon in the effort to label genetically modified organisms. The soap is made from a collection of organic oils and vitamin E which don’t actually exist in the end product after the saponification process has changed the oil into a salt. 

The essential oils used are you choice. This is my favorite.
