    I have made salt bars using 80% of salt to my oil weight. I like 85% CO/ 10% SB/ 5% castor although I do find these to attract water from the air during humid weather. I just store them wrapped in a clean tea towel in a cardboard box and they were fine.

    I have tried a salt bar from another soaper from the US who used his regular moisturising recipe with the salt added and it didn't lather really, just produced a light lotion effect. My skin did feel lovely after using it though. Salt kills lather - just try lathering regular soap in some! Luckily coconut oil makes amazing lather Smile

    I use 100% coconut oil. Reason for using all (or mostly) coconut oil is that salt cuts the lather. I use rock salt. Surprisingly, it's not scratchy at all.

    Hmmm, I think your hubby needs lots of kisses for being clever and bringing home rock salt. It goes really smooth, like a river pebble. I only use 50% salt by the way. Just as a matter of interest, when I use rain water from my tank to make coconut soap, the soap ends up pink. How cool is that? Laughing
