I wanted to post this recipe as it is wonderful. I infused 2 oz chamomile blossoms in the oils except the shea butter (I added that in the end ) I used flat dark beer for the liquid /lye solution I basically made up this recipe according to what I had to work with, and what understanding I have gained from this forum and the books I have about the properties of the oils . I understand this will not be very cleansing more a conditioning I used rosemary and mint EO Thanks James

The fragrance from the chamomile is amazing as it smells so earthy. The calendula wont have any benefit ?

I think experimentation is wonderful! How else can you learn for yourself and see what works and does not. I loved all my science labs in college for that reason. I came across my favorite soap in just the way you mentioned. Not what I expected but came out so wonderful!
