I made it once 70/30 and never did like it. I think I made it 4 years ago. I still have most of the bars. I just don't like high OO soaps.

Yeah, at the end i guess everything goes to personal taste, in my case i love it and, in my personal opinion, this blend of oils makes a great soap

Shunt, would you be willing to sell those to me? There are Syrian refugees in my area who would love them! I made 20 bars and gave those away, kept 3 for myself to covid hand washing since there’s no co in them.

Let me locate them if I can. I’ve packed all my soap stuff away as I had to get it out of my house due to breathing issues and I’m having surgery on Friday. I’ll try to find them when I’m off recovering. I’ll just send them to you if I find them.

24% laurel oil
76% olive oil
33% lye solution

Please put yourself first, and finding the soap last. I hope the surgery goes perfectly so you’ll be home and feeling like yourself again ASAP.

I recently bought and used an Aleppo bar from a local Syrian grocery. I really love the scent and color and have long been intrigued. I'm glad you like it and you are right, taste is so idiosyncratic. To me it just felt slimy. Your bars look beautiful.
And @shunt2011 best wishes to you and take good care.

Thanks@toan, I waited about 9 months. I tried one at 6 months and it was still a little slimy. But 9 months seemed to be good.

Ok i was hesitating between 6 or 9 months but maybe i'm going to try hard to be patient and wait at least 9 months. Thank you : )

Sorry, I didn't take photos. It was greenish/brownish and smelled divine. It was stamped and packaged in Arabic. Luckily my son studies Arabic and translated the label to me which was "Aleppo Soap made with laurel oil and olive oil."

Okay, now I am curious about trying it again. Can you give more detail about the bubbli-ness, etc. Like I said, I loved the scent but it just seemed so lotion-y when I used it.

The soap I made was 75 oo and 25 lbo. Laurel berry oil has about half of the bubbly Lauric fatty acid that coconut does, but almost no myristic, which co has. My soap is going on 3 years, and makes a few big initial bubbles, then the more coating or lotions, slick lather you describe.
