It's very common here to get this plant. The Latin name for Cuban oregano is plectranthus amboinicus. It is also known as Indian borage, Spanish thyme and Mexican mint, among other names. 

The leaves of the Cuban oregano plant are strongly scented and I do like the scent cross my fingertips. People said the leaves are good for skin but I've not did any try until now.

My receipe for this soap is designed for facial soap. The combination of Hazelnut Oil and Olive Oil is said to be the major oils for facial soap in Europe. My soap friend also strongly recommend me to give a try on high ratio of Hazelnut Oi and say I will definitely love it. So that why I was doing. 

Ostrich Oil and Jojoba Oil are all famous for the skin care. All the ingredients make this soap become my dream soap and I hope the Cuban Oregano will work on the spots. hahah

There is no other essential oils for fragrance oil added. I just made a simple test to see if the the natural scent will be preserved in soap.

The soap is light yellow- green in the first as you can see on the third picture inside but after a day, the color became as the first picture. Nature never stops changing.

終於把自製的高純度左手香汁拿出來做皂了 XD

早就聽聞左手香功效很多,我比較有臉部肌膚的困擾,所以就把這塊做成了洗臉皂,用了榛果油、橄欖油、鴕鳥油做搭配,並輔以荷荷芭油做超脂,又是一款很豪華的皂方~ 因為加了超多榛果油,榛果油可是做洗臉皂最好的油之一,因為保溼而且洗感絕佳~,之前就有皂友大力推薦我一定要試試高比例榛果油皂的洗感,BUT榛果油好貴,下不了手,這次就是一整個豁出去了!打了小小的一鍋.....

我自己也有種左手香,也很喜歡手指輕拂過時,指尖上那濃郁的香氣,可惜我家左手香不爭氣,這次入皂的原料是善心人士給的,葉子肥大又多汁,香氣很濃唷~

鮮榨的汁液是深綠色的,溶鹼後變深土色,脫模後是非常可愛的淡黃綠,非常粉嫩,很有春天枝頭吐新芽的氣息(如同第3張圖的內圈)。我很興奮的跟皂友分享這顏色超美的,結果,不過一晚的光景,顏色也已經變成淡淡的土黃色了.... 唉....

左手香入皂,成皂後有人說氣味不見了,有人說依舊在,所以我只好自己做實驗,看看究竟會如何,所以這塊皂就沒加任何香氛了...

因為洗臉皂在用很省,所以只做了小小的一鍋,忘了拿出小的土司模,所以這塊皂就直接入一般的土司模,導致厚度上有點單薄,只有2公分厚,之前我都習慣做厚度約3公分的,這樣比較厚實,可以洗比較久喔 XDDD

放了4個月後的試洗心得。

目前手上同時有2塊皂在使用,另一個是soap #36 死海泥深層潔膚皂,我洗臉時習慣用起泡球搓出綿密的泡泡,左手香這塊因為加了高比例的榛果油,雖然親膚性及保溼性不錯,但缺點就是榛果油也沒啥泡沫,我用起泡球嚕了很久,泡泡有比較綿密,但是不持久,洗起來不算滋潤,應該要夏天用才好。反觀死海泥深層潔膚皂,因為是由高比例酪梨油製成的皂,用起泡球嚕出泡泡後,泡泡非常綿密且持久,洗臉時會有種幸福感,滋潤度很適合現在的天氣,目前是寒流來襲...囧。

我印證了一件事,用左手香榨汁溶鹼入皂後,成皂洗起來依舊有味道,味道我很喜歡,淡淡的的草本香氣,好舒服~

過了幾天,我直接拿到水龍頭下加水起泡,算難起泡,但泡泡還是不綿密,但是洗完後的臉,完全不緊繃(現在是寒冷的冬天,我是油肌),非常舒服,我有個超乾肌的皂友,非常愛榛果油,因為她說洗完非常保溼,我個人是覺得還好啦...
