I finally strained out my concoction a few days ago and tried it out. It felt very silky going on and rinsed off clean in spite of the 1/4 cup of raw honey I added (because I could…lol).
Just a few words about ‘preserving’ this soap chiefly because of the AV gel. Aloe Vera on its own is okay refrigerated for about a week – if you are planning to use it internally. However, mixed with vitamin c (1/2 teaspoon to a cup of AV gel) and some vitamin e, it can be kept refrigerated for up to 8 months…not that it’s going to last that long.
In Case I’ve not mentioned it before this makes a wonderful shampoo, face and body wash for most skin types.
