Handmade olive oil soap makes a wonderful gift for someone you know who already enjoys olive oil based products or is searching for a great kind of natural soap that will nourish their skin without drying. It has a natural green color due to its ingredients’ infusion and a clean scent.
When used regularly, it can do wonders for dry and flaky skin, which can sometimes be a problem during the colder months of the year. It’s also great for people who may suffer from allergies too, confirmed by discontinuing use of conventional soap that may contain sulfates and additives that don’t bode well.
If you have ever wanted to try making your own, perhaps due to the above benefits, or give the gift of a pure soap bar product, you’re in good hands! Here are my findings for the best handmade olive oil soaps that will be enjoyed by a lucky beneficiary and returned to again and again!
Handmade Olive Oil Soap Bars Set of 5
This set by Anatolle get s great ratings and produces good lather and promotes hydration for dry, itchy skin. It is great for bath and shower use, in the kitchen and some people have even reported using it as a shampoo with good results!
This five-bar total set contains no sulfites, parabens or alcohol, and contains vegan ingredients. One thing I do want to point out, as it has no added fragrance, some people either love it or hate it…the topic of how well does it smell is subjective.
Handmade Castile Olive Oil Soap With Goat’s Milk
Have you ever had a negative reaction due to whatever chemical makeup you discovered later on with a traditional brand of soap with ingredients you can’t pronounce? Fear no more, this four-pack set by the Soap Haven is made ONLY from a saponified olive oil base and goat’s milk.
The “Castile” part – this refers to a region in Spain where soap was originally produced in this caliber. Olive oil is one of the biggest staple products from the Mediterranean and its benefits are well-known not just in beauty products but cooking too. Goat’s milk is especially good for skin in the same way that shea and cocoa butter do.
Each soap bar is a 4.5 oz size that will last a long time if stored well (let it drain well). It’s ideal for those who who have sensitive, or dry skin, and lastly it contains no added fragrances.
Herbal Scent Olive Oil Soap Bar Sets
For those of you who prefer a more fragrant version of olive oil soap, this pack set will fit the bill; there are two options: rose and chamomile, or vanilla and coconut. Each set includes five bars of each scent giving a pack of 10 bars in all.
The bars are a nice size and have a rustic natural look due to the process used, the added scents will invigorate you and help you get your day started!
Handmade Olive Oil Loofah Soap with Lime Scent
Have you ever tried loofah sponges in the shower? Can’t beat them for their exfoliating power – now combine it with the purity of olive oil soap and you’ve got a match made in heaven for yourself or a friend on your gift list.
These are lime-scented too which is a great citrusy aroma that is invigorating and pleasing to the senses.I think this company also includes an additional line that includes other scents too so be sure to check around!
Lavender or Rose Extract Soap Bars
If you’ve used olive oil soap before but found the smell a little “funky” for your liking, I have good news, the company that makes the first bar also has floral scents too so you can enjoy all the benefits of natural olive oil but with a floral scent.
Which of these do you like best? The important thing is that handmade soap will win out every time regardless of the added ingredients. To sum up, handmade olive oil soap is not just a thoughtful gift idea, it’s a great way to give your skin the nurturing it deserves. Get yourself a set like one of these and treat yourself today 😊!
