So a coworker, poor thing, has an allergy to olive oil. Since I'm a dry and dirty martini girl (vodka, shaken, two olives) I feel awful for her. So, I started working on a soap recipe that excludes olive oil. It took some research, but I was rewarded. I steeped some calendula leaves in rice bran oil for several hours and used that to replace the Olive oil in the soap. The poor bar looks completely naked except for some leaves I threw on the top for decoration, but the smell is simply amazing. Clean, earthy with a touch of lavender. It's on the rack for three more weeks, but I can't wait to try it. All natural, no olive oil soap. I hope she likes it, and you can try it too!
