...and with my singing voice I NEVER get requests. But someone heard me talking about making tallow soap and asked if I would like to try making a castile soap. At first I was hesitant, but after reading some stuff about how castile soaps were valued in colonial times, I am interested. I have two requests, fellow Saponiphiles: 1) Best recommendations for castile bar soap, simplest are best. 2) Is Lira Olive Pomace Oil from Websaurant ($14.99/gallon) as good as the soapmaking reviewers say? I mean this is CHEAP. Same product shows up on Amazon for $35. What say you?
