I have never tried making a salt soap before, but I have recently read so much about the benefits of sea salt that I was really content that my next challenge was to create a sea bar. Internet is really a great thing when it’s about gathering info and thanks to some blogs, I gathered the necessary info and I was ready to try this special soap. And of course, Amy’s recipes helped me a lot to understand what would be the best for a soap containing salt. My first try was a white rose with 100% salt of oils, made of 80% coconut oil and 20% castor oil, using an individual mold. My second try was with less salt (75%) , and the same quantities of oils and I have cut it after 1h of baking in the oven. For the colour, I used spirulina which I simply adore and I decorated my soap with some Himalayan salt 🙂
I can only say that I can’t wait to try this salt bar!
Thank you Amy for giving us this opportunity of learning about salt soaps.

Love the little rose so so cute, and how different to your other lovely bars which are so rustic, both lovely, x Linda
The pink Himalayan salt on top is gorgeous with the green !
Thanks Suzy for your lovely comment!

That green and pink looks great!
Oh, Natalia! The green bar is beautiful! I love the Himalayan salt on top, too! That is one gorgeous soap!
thanks, Katy, can’t wait to try it!
They both look great, Natalia!! Can’t wait to hear how you like them! 🙂
I am also really curious ;), Amy!
Congratulations on your first salt bara! I can’t wait to hear your comment when you start using it! The coloring your used is so lovely. Think I need to try some spirlina, yours is really pretty!
I love this green , and knowing it’s natural colorant, i love it even more :).
Wonderful green with spirulina ! Spa bars are so great I think you will enjoy it. I love to shampooing my hair with this kind of soap. It boots my curls. I love your pics too. I think it ‘s hard to take pic of soaps.
Merci Swanee. Je pense que je vais l’utiliser aussi comme shampoo 😉
Verde si roz se asorteaza perfect, a iesit minunat !
Multumesc Geta! Verdele a fost si mai intens cand l am taiat, insa pozele le am facut dupa cateva zile si cumva se vede ca sarea s a si uscat . In fine, e un sapun ‘sanatos’, ma bucur de asta 😉
As vrea sa te intreb daca sarea afecteaza cumva forma de silicon, ma refer la cea pentru trandafir. Multumesc !
Nu, Geta, nu am vazut nimic schimbari la forma.
Ti am trimis ieri mail:)
to use Himalayan salt is great idea!!! I love Himalatan salt, I usually use it to cook, but I want to try for soap too 🙂
Pretty green color! I love Himalayan salt too! 🙂
Ce dragut! Imi place! Are si ulei esential?
Multumesc Alexandra! E aromat cu ulei esential de dafin, palmarosa si busuioc :).
I love salt soaps
Je crois que tu as choisi la recette idéale pour ce type de savon ! A combien l’as-tu surgraissé ?
Merci, Jazz. Le savon est surgraissé à 20%.
Looks beautiful, but I’m sure it feels even better than it looks.
am intrat sa vad ce mai faci, ce ai mai facut si am dat de frumusetele astea care arata super bine si ca bonus ma duc cu gandul la mare, la nisip, la plaja:)
So beautiful! I just love the graduated greens. I’ve been afraid to use spirulina–does the colour fade over time?
I need time more than I usually have to look through your blog throughout! I love this green and it’s so pricey here and it’s granulated,not powder. Do you find the salt bar good for face? I’ve been reading lately about it being good even for dry and sensitive skin . What do you think?
Yes, Maja, the salt bars are my favorites and I did use them for face (and also as shampoo bars). They are good, just try them, and let me know what you think about them.
