Hii! When ordering a bunch of herbs a few days I noticed that that supplier sells laurel oil! And not even at those insane prices I've heard before. So, looking at wikipedia, the "recipe" was like 2-30% laurel oil + olive oil. It also said that they use seawater. That's where I hit a wall... I was thinking about using 20% laurel oil and 80% olive. The mediterranean sea contains 38% of seasalt in the water near syria. I don't want to add salt to my soap batter but I'd like to have it dissolved in my lye water. However, it's gonna be a big challenge to dissolve 38% in water (24% was already difficult when I was making brine for my cheese). Is it safe to add lye to salt water? To those that made aleppo soap, what did you do with the salt?
