Marrakesh Delight is a sandalwood and vanilla soap that I made for my friend, Jason, upon request.
With his psoriasis I added almond milk to this batch for the added moisturizing. I make no statement that it will cure psoriasis, but he has stated that it does help relieve it.
I do have to come clean on this one though, I did goof on my fragrance amounts. *hangs head* I normally measure in grams, but this time I measured in ounces and totally goofed on the vanilla and vanilla stabilizer, those being waaaay more than I had originally planned. So, this batch will be more vanilla than the next batch I make, which was supposed to actually have more sandalwood with a waft of vanilla. Still smells outstanding, I’m not complaining, but I did goof.
I added the different clays, not only for color, I was trying to go for a reddish hue and a white hue, but vanilla pretty much says “NOPE! It’s brown!” So the dark brown/reddish part *ahem* is red sandalwood powder and Moroccan red clay, while the white/lighter brown *smirk* is titanium dioxide and French green clay. Color aside, the clays help bring out the impurities and dirt from the pores, leaving skin feeling fresh and clean.
A separate friend, “K”, stated that he loved how his face felt after shaving, that it felt very smooth. So, goof aside, there is that. 🙂
