Nettle Soap

I made my first nettle soap a couple of years ago, and was absolutely delighted with it. I felt it was about time I made another one, and this time I wanted a really deep green. So instead of water, I used a strong nettle infusion, I used ( amongst other oils ) unrefined hemp and avocado oils as well as deep green virgin olive oil, again to intensify the green I wanted. Together with a goodly amount of ground dried nettle to give it deep deep green flecks, it produced this soap:-

I am keeping my fingers crossed that this gorgeous green won't fade. It is scented with Sweetgrass FO, Rosemary and Lavender, yummy sweet herby smell.


  1. A very nice green! I cross my finges too.
    Best wishes from Göttingen, germany,
