Olive Oil in Soap

Handmade Soap

You will find that Olive oil is one of our five favorite oils to use in our soap. Olive oil in soap is such a powerhouse contributor. Not only does it give a rich feel and help create a very hard bar, but it also acts as a humectant, which means it can draw moisture to the skin.  You can count on this oil providing a gentle cleanse without the fear of stripping your skin. This should definitely make you smile! Another reason that we love this oil in our soap, is that it is a natural source of antioxidants like vitamins E, which fights free radicals. The benefits of Olive oil are present whether ingested or rubbed into the skin in the form of soap. 

Speaking of ingesting, I wanted to share something yummy and fun with you and what better way than to introduce you to a beautiful friend of mine by the name of Charlene Simon. Charlene is a very talented woman, not only is she a fellow soap maker but Charlene also has her very own Olive oil and Vinegar shop. You really have to go take a look at her shop. She was so kind as to share with us her favorite oil and recipe. 

Charlene says that her favorite oil by far is, drum roll....
the Butter Olive Oil!
She says's its her favorite because it replaces butter, which is so much healthier. It's also dairy free naturally flavored extra virgin olive oil that is sure to delight across the board. It's warm, smooth, and delicious taste of butter drizzled over popcorn, baked potatoes., veggies, and more.
She was also so kind as to share this chart with us.
Butter to Olive Oil
  • 1 teaspoon = ¾ teaspoon

    1 Tablespoon = 2-1/4 teaspoons

    ¼ cup = 3 tablespoons

    1/3 cup = ¼ cup

    ½ cup = ¼ cup + 2 tablespoons

    2/3 cup = ½ cup

    ¾ cup = ½ cup + 1 tablespoon

    1 cup = ¾ cup

    This is a fun chart for replacing butter with olive oil!

    Hope you guys enjoy!
