It's all about the baby....

A few years ago, when I learned I was going to be a Grandma, I made a baby soap.  It was o.k. That wasn't quite good enough - especially for my grandbaby.  So...I've been working on it and making some changes and now I'm happy with it.  No...not happy...thrilled!

It's based on a castile formula. A true castile soap doesn't have anything (repeat...anything!) in it but olive oil.  No scent, no other oils and definitely no chemicals.  Olive oil doesn't lather much but oh! my! the moisturizing capability!

The base of this soap is olive oil so don't look for lots of lather.  However, I used that olive oil to make some herbal macerations first!  I picked herbs that would be gentle on a baby's tender skin and healing too. I also scented this gently with pure Lavender essential oil because Lavender is soothing and healing too.  Although I can't call this soap a castile, it makes me think of castile on steroids!

Here she is - a lovely pale green from the herbs... I took this picture on a white background so you could see this beautiful color!

This contest is a bit unusual....I have a name that I think I want to use - but perhaps you can come up with something even better!  Remember...this soap is very gentle, moisturizing and all about the baby!

And so we begin another contest!  And with a contest there are rules and prizes!
