Long Island Seaweed/Seawater Soap
I was sitting on the beach and I saw some beautiful green seaweed. I thought it might be fun to try to make soap with it, and while I was at it, use seawater to do it.
Seawater, filtered twice and boiled. Seaweed, washed twice and dried in the oven.
Crushing the seaweed into powder,
The lye mixed with seawater.
Pouring the lye-seawater into the melted oils.
Adding the powdered seaweed.
In the mold
Cut and on the curing racks.
The soap is still green in color and has a slight scent of seaweed. What do you think of it? I’m looking forward to trying it out!Yours in Gratitude,
