I am considering making soap using soapwort, however, in all of the recipes I have found the end result is liquid soaps/shampoos. This is fina and dandy, of course, however, I would really like to make bar soaps in similar fashion. I was curious if it would be worthwhile to use some combination of beeswax and oatmeal to thicken the soap enough to make it into bars.
Would this work?
Alternately, has someone made bars of soap using soapwort (without using lye, hydroxides, or pieces of other soaps)? If so, would you mind terribly sharing your methods/recipes?
