Olive oil soap, also commonly know as Castile soap, is thought to be one of the oldest types of soap in existence. While the city of Venice is the known origin of the first white soap factories, olive soap originated in the Castile region of Spain and may have first appeared on the Greek Island of Crete. This fantastic soap reached the shores of Southern France in Marseille some time after its appearance in Crete and as the excellent qualities of this soap were shared it became a soap that is continued to be used today.
Olive-oil soap is gentle to the skin, leaves no residue and is a wonderful soap to include in a soap recipe collection. There are many formulations and countless variations from which to choose. This type of soap is the perfect formulation for dry and sensitive skin but every skin type will benefit from its gentle soothing and cleansing properties.
The following four recipes are ingredients to use with the cold process soap making method. The listed ingredients, when combined with a lye mixture, will produce four different but heavenly results. These recipes are four of the the many recipes of soap maker extraordinaire, David Fisher. It would be nearly impossible to find any that could surpass these in quality and variety.
