Made with 100% CO and 0%SF. Honey Locust tea as water and honey locust powder at 3%.
Individual bar mold with eucalyptus and mint EO.
Honey Locust, or whatever name it should be in English because I had a hard time finding it, is a plant native to China. I used dried honey locust pods, they are the vanilla-pods-looking things in the picture. Break into smaller pieces and boil to a concentrated tea. Ever since ancient times it had been used along soap nuts and other herbs for cleaning purposes. Till this day some people will still use honey locust tea/juice as natural shampoo and body wash. Although, since it produce an alkaline solution I image it's kinda liking washing hair with lye soaps.
