Back in early May I started my road trip back to nature and developed a Cold Process soap formula just for that line. One of the main oil used in Back to Nature line is Pistachio Nut oil. I don't know if you have noticed, all material prices have gone up (maybe because of the gasoline price hike??). It no longer pencils out to use Pistachio Nut oil. Every since I've trying to find a good replacement formula to achieve the same goodness of the original recipe. I think I found one. This new and improved (at least I think so) repipe contains Flaxseed oil, or also called Linseed oil. This is such a great oil, it's conditioning score is high up there and the level of omega-3 is comparable to fish oil, but it is such a soft oil, so soft it's INS value is negative! In order to incorporate Flaxseed oil into the recipe I have to reformulate it to up the hardness scale. Enough of talk, here is my new formulated Back to Nature line of soap, will only use essential oil or just naked. One batch is done with 1/2 water and 1/2 coconut milk and scented with Lavender EO blend, the other one just plain naked.
