Default 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!

Is the black soap cleansing enough or do you need to add the castile soap to help with that? Or, did you just do that to stretch it out, or of personal preference?

Yes it is, I don't add any other soap to mine.
