Liquid African Black Soap Recipe

4 cups of Distilled Water
2 tablespoons of Chamomile Flowers
2 tablespoons of Lavender Flowers
I boil the the water and make a tea, I let it steep for 2 or 3 hours then strain. Then I add about 8ozs of Black Soap and I let it sit over night. I strain it at least twice and then I added some Shea and Cocoa Butter to it, I also added 4 ozs of Sweet almond oil, because it keeps the skin from itching and 2 ozs of
jojoba oil because it's good for the hair, I also added 2ozs of honey & glycerin both are good for the hair and body. I hope you like my recipe and decide to make it for yourself. African Black Soap is great for the face it will clear up acne and other bumps. When I use it on my face I use straight black soap, It really cleans the skin and makes it soft. It might sting a little at first but that goes away and you'll very clear beautiful skin. This is the only soap I use now and my hair, face and skin loves me for it.

I use Blk soap as well. It is a very versatile soap.

When I make a body wash I dissolve the black soap into 4 ounces of hot water and let it sit overnight. Then I add in some almond castile soap, with honey, castor oil, coconut cream , and glycerin. It cleans so well and keeps my skin supple.
I just bought a bottle of liquid black soap yesterday for low-poo. Haven't used it yet and looking forward to trying it with your recipes! Any advice on using it on hair? TIA!
