I want to make the Lavendar Basil Soap on this site, but I don’t have the OOPomace…can I sub regular olive oil in place of it?  I think it looked okay when I checked it in soap calc, but then I wasn’t sure.

I am sure you can use regular olive oil.  Most soapers use the olive oil pomace because it is cheaper.  I just use the cheapest olive oil I can buy.  Works fine.  Good luck with your soap.


I have been making ours now for a few years.
