This wonderful soap recipe is found in the 1877 book, “Perfumery and Kindred Arts”. It is made combining two basic soap recipes, A Fine White Soap and Castile Soap. The two soaps are ground down, mixed together, and boiled by adding distilled water and rose water. The boiling process takes approximately two hours and results in a creamy mixture that the essential oils and fragrance oil can then be added to. This process is called milling and produces some of the smoothest, longest lasting soaps on the market. A Fine White Soap, is the perfect plain soap for the person who’s sensitivities won’t allow them to enjoy a fully tallow bar. This simple soap was used in many historical soap recipes as a base to build more complex soaps upon. The only substitution, due to availability, is beef tallow for veal fat. Castile Soap has been around for a long time and is made entirely from olive oil. It is a very gentle soap, making it a wonderful soap for those with sensitive skin.
