Charcoal & Rose Clay Spa Bar | Soap Queen

Are there any other soapers out there reading my blog?! Hello to you! I used to love making soap but stopped when I got in to jewelry making. Now I’ve decided to pick it back up again (and hopefully sell some at my annual December stall!) and I’ve been searching for fun recipes. The Soap Queen is one of my favourite blogs because she is great at explaining every step and has great tips. Apparently charcoal and rose clay are great for purifying and cleansing, and the fact that this recipe uses melt & pour soap means this is a great beginner recipe. And even better - just click on the link in the recipe and it will add all the ingredients you need on the Bramble Berry website (you lucky Americans!). This would be a beautiful gift soap - I know I would love a bar!

Understanding the Makings of African Black Soap.

I love that they mentioned that traditional soaps differ from country to country and even from a state within a country to another state.

This video pretty much focuses on how Yoruba people make it, but it also mentions that it’s widespread in Western Africa, and also draws similarities and differences between the ones these women make and the ones made in other places particularly Ghana and Togo.

I really liked hearing about the rules associated with making it such as: the makers must not use bad language when making it, they mustn’t break bad news to any of the workers while or where they are working, they should ensure that things are alright with their spouses. The women mention that this was really taken seriously in the olden day, and the rules were really revered. One of the women stated that she dosent believe that the soap has any spiritual qualities and that people believed that back in the olden days cause “ojo won ooti la” meaning their eyes weren’t open, which is wrong, the belief that colonialism brought “civilization” or “enlightenment” is so disheartening and I wish it isn’t so prevalent. However it’s a really good and informative video.
