This is the second batch of soap I ever made, and it’s become one of my favourites over time. The long curing time is definitely beneficial because I used unrefined shea butter (USA / Canada) as my hard oil (and as far as hard oils go, it’s not very hard). I also used avocado oil, so the bars are loaded with all kinds of rich, nutritious oils.
