Pomegranate Beauty Bar by Diane

Pomegranate Soap Recipe

Try This Incredible Pomegranate Soap Recipe by Diane!

Here is a hot process recipe for you to try!  It comes to you from Diane of Indulgent Body & Bath.  We were talking about the pomegranate oil she had bought and the soap she made with it.  Diane was kind enough to provide the recipe and let me post it here for you to test out.  Here’s what she had to say:

So on to the recipe – I was out of olive oil, didn’t feel like going to the store and decided to use what I had on hand.  I turned to some of my favorite oils for skin conditioning: apricot kernel, evening primrose, macadamia nut, and sunflower oils.  I learned from the other experiments with pomegranate oil, that it is a heavier smelling oil and that also follows through to after the process – that’s why I chose to use a fragrance oil – it’s easy to get pomegranate fragrance oil.

 

Pomegranate Beauty Bar Ingredients

The following are the ingredients that you’ll need for Diane’s recipe.  The links have been included to help you find where to buy them.

 

 

Pomegranate Beauty Bar Directions

The process is the same as normal for making soap.  I processed this as a crockpot hot process to get more of a benefit of the pomegranate juice & oil (or so I feel anyway).  After the cook, remove from the heat and add 2 Tbsp pomegranate juice concentrate, 2 ounces pomegranate oil, and 2 ounces pomegranate FO incorporating thoroughly after each addition.  I prefer lighter, more subtle scents.  I am sure you could go heavier with the FO.

Put in mold and let sit for 24 hours.  Unmold, and cut.  You can use the soap right away, but the longer it stays out to dry, the harder and better the bars get.  I suggest a dry of at least 2-3 weeks.

Thanks to Diane for providing this recipe!

 

~J’s Note:  You can use this soap right away only because of the hot process method.  Do not do this if you use this recipe with the cold process.

 

Enjoy Your Pomegranente Beauty Bar!

    As I have seen many wonderful recipes, no one ever mentions whether the recipe is for a 2lb,4lb,5lb mold or how many bars the mixture makes and the size of crockpot or stainless steel pot on top stove is used.It would be so helpful for beginner(s)soaper’s.

      I sooo agree! It’s like giving a cake recipe but not saying whether to bake it in a 13×9 or 8×8 pan ;-/ Please help us beginners out :-)
