Happy holidays to everyone. Thanks to my loyal visitors for keeping in touch with me. As a way of saying thank you, here is a free recipe for everyone to try out at home this period.

I used a raw black soap base which is popularly known as 'Ghana Alata Soap'. Some people use it that way but I love tweaking and remaking soap to my preference.  The African Black soap is quite popular and used for various type of soaps. It is mostly used as a soap base and is quite useful to beginners in soap making.

So, I had 100g of black soap left over and I decided to make something different from my usual bar soap. With the help of some recipes I found online, I proceeded to try making a liquid soap and it came out just fine, the way I wanted.

 What I used
100g Ghana Alata Soap Base
1 teaspoon Camwood Powder
I tablespoon of  Zaya Oils (for lightening)
50ml Rosewater
1 teaspoon glycerine



Grate or mash the black soap in a bowl


Pour into a pot and place on low heat.
Pour the rose water into the pot and stir

Carefully stir with a wooden spoon or spatula until the soap has melted or has started bubbling.
Pour the camwood, glycrine and zaya oil into the mixture and stir for another five minutes.
Continue stirring until the soap has melted.
If it starts burning or you prefer a lighter consistency, add some distilled water or more rose water.
When melted, bring down and allow to cool.

Pour into jars or bottles
For a thicker consistency, add stearic acid. 
So that's it. I hope you love this recipe. 
This is a whitening soap(zaya oil) that prevents acne (camwood), hence using it would make your skin blemish free and glowing. It has become a family soap and we are loving it. It can be used by all skin types as it is moisturizing and does not cause reactions on the skin. My family use it and we've had no complaints whatsoever.
You can try it at home and give me feedback. I would love to hear about your ideas and the results.
