This recipe is great for dry and damaged skin leaving you clean and smelling oh so good.

This soap is healing, softening, emollient (rice bran oil) or balancing (jojoba) and anti-oxidant.  Excellent for mature skins (and all skin types). this recipe makes a pretty, light green coloured creamy soap which is mildly exfoliating.


Makes approx. 500gm finished soap

  • 1 lb (453g) Goatsmilk melt and pour soap base, diced
  • 1 tablespoon Rice bran oil (or jojoba oil)
  • 2 teaspoons Green tea extract
  • 1 - 2 tsp Sea spice fragrance
  • 1 tablespoon Green barley powder***
  • 1 tablespoon White clay


  1.  Place soap base in microwave safe jug and melt on medium power for 1 minute.
  2.  Stir and repeat in 30 second increments. Finish the melting process when a few small lumps of soap base remain; gently stirring until smooth.
  3.  Blend oil, fragrance, green tea extract and powders together in a small bowl until smooth and then incorporate into melted base – reheating if required.
  4.  Gently stir well.
  5.  Pour into moulds.
  6. Spritz the back with alcohol to remove bubbles
  7. Allow to cool.
  8. When completely cold remove from mould – wrap if desired to keep out moisture and prevent “sweating”.

***i source my green barley powder from a health food and supplement company in queensland by the name of Sustainable Agriculture & Enterprises Pty. Ltd. You may possibly substitute wheat grass powder or chlorophyll powder for the green barley powder; however you will need to trial how much to use to achieve the colour and exfoliant result you want.
