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.

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,
