Olive Oil

Olive oil is an extremely moisturising oil, and makes wonderful soap that is hard but also non-drying and extremely gentle on the skin. It is a fantastic source of natural vitamin E, and soothing and healing to all skin types. I use olive oil as the base to all of my soap recipes, each barcontains a substantial amount of coconut oil from 30% to 100%.

Try the benefits of olive oil for yourself by making yourself a quick hand or foot scrub - pour a tablespoon of table salt into the palm of your hand, and cover it in olive oil. Rub your hands together to mix the salt and oil, and then gently rub all over the front and back of your hands. Rinse with a small amount of soap and water, and towel dry. Your hands will feel squeaky clean and smooth as well as incredibly moisturised.
