    I won’t mind to have such a pre-bath and to have my body massaged using this Beldi soap. Is it possible nowadays?

  2. Jess 07 November 2013 :

    I think it is, you should contact a beauty salon. They should be aware of such a technic.

  3. Windy 11 November 2013 :

    Thanks for your advice. As for the soap itself, I think it can be useful for my greasy hair I hardly cope with.

  4. Rianna H 13 November 2013 :

    And I have troubles when combing hair, I hope it will help me get rid of this problem.

  5. Dora Rossi 30 November 2013 :

    I hope it will be effective in the solution of our problems. Good luck to you!

  6. Patti L 06 February 2014 :

    I hope to make this the ‘hot’ way in the crock pot. Should be pretty much the same process as any liquid soap right??

  7. Maria 06 February 2014 :

    Hello Patti L.
    Yes, it will be the same, but you should “cook” soap mass at least 2 hours on water bath, then let it cool down. After cooling of soap, you can add honey.

  8. Patti L 09 February 2014 :

    Maria, Thanks so much for posting this. Going to try making it today. I have NO patience so waiting for it to ripen is going to be hard, but I’ll try 😉

  9. Patti L 10 March 2014 :

    I did make this (and the liquid shampoo as well) in the crock pot instead of double boiler (I don’t have one) and it worked beautifully! I used the low setting on the crock pot. Thanks again for posting this! I’m doing the ‘no poo’ thing with my hair and sometimes when I feel I need some suds to really clean my hair and scalp, this is just the thing. Lots of bubbles and cleans wonderfully.

    I am confused on some of the recipe given. Some will not know what a water bath is or where to obtiam some of the ingredients. I would love to try this but do not have the time or patience to wait for a month, then an additional week before it can be used. Do you have or know any place that does carry the remade Beldi for those who do not have the capability to make it themselves.

  11. Hi Pamela Morris, the problem is that the ready-made product can’t be sent because it doesn’t contain a lot of preservative and will deteriorate fast. That is why you can either make it yourself or buy from someone who live nearby. All the ingredients listed in the recipe can be easily obtained from shops for soap makers, there are a lot of such shops online.

     

    Water bath is a very simple concept. You put a container with ingredients in a larger container with water and warm larger container with water, this action called water bath.
