Both aloe vera and net­tle leaf are sooth­ing to the skin, and are fre­quently used in nat­u­ral skin­care. Net­tle leaf is ideal for treat­ing acne and other skin blem­ishes, and for re­liev­ing scalp prob­lems which lead to dan­druff. It’s as­trin­gent, anti-in­flam­ma­tory and an­tibac­te­ri­ci­dal, among other things. Aloe vera is also anti-in­flam­ma­tory and very sooth­ing on the skin.

In­gre­di­ents • 250g glyc­er­ine soap base • 2 ta­ble­spoons crushed, dried net­tle leaf • 1/8 cup aloe vera gel

First, melt the glyc­er­ine soap base, then al­low a bit of time for it to cool slightly. Put in the aloe vera gel and net­tle leaves. Mix all the in­gre­di­ents to­gether, then pour into moulds.
