Neem is not good on face, so is soap. The ph is too high. Face wash should be made with gentle surfacants

Liquid soap is liquid soap, regardless of the body part(s) you use it on or what name you want to call it. The method of making this type of soap is the same.

Do not put bits of herbs in liquid soap. They will settle to the bottom, the lye will probably discolor the bits to black "turds", and they will be a source of food for microbes.

Dilute only with distilled water -- no aloe, no herb infusion -- just pure water.

You can use an herb infusion and/or aloe as the water phase for making the soap paste -- that would be fine.

The more botanicals (bug food) you put into the soap, the more important it is to use a preservative in the diluted product. I use liquid Germall Plus at 0.5% of the final diluted soap weight.

^ What DeeAnna said!

Also, there is no "perfect" recipe. What works for me may not work for you.

To me the LS with glycerin and 60% OO in those threads is a lovely face and gentle hand soap.

Why do you think that neem is not good on face? All of my research says it is very good for skin. I have minimal use with neem powder, only using it in one mask recipe (about 6 applications) and as hair rinse for daughter's flaky scalp, and have found it improved skin condition.
