It may seem like an odd way to start off our learn to make soap tips but using olive oil in making your own soap is actually one of the easiest ways to get started and reap all of the benefits. It has been used by the people of ancient Egypt as well as civilizations that came before us. There are many benefits of using this oil in making soap. The soap making process can be made relatively quickly if you have all of the right ingredients. Below we will go over these ingredients and explain how they benefit you and your skin.



All of these ingredients can be purchased from your local health food store. Some of these ingredients are better than others depending on where you live and what types of products you have available to you. Most of these ingredients can be purchased at a health food or health supplement aisle within any grocery store or a large chain supermarket. For the sake of affordability, I recommend trying to purchase these products from online retailers whenever possible because their prices are often much cheaper.

Arya Syrus

Many of the products that you will find are actually named after certain locations or geographical features around the world. For example, I found two different soaps called “arya Syrus” and “Ramadan Gold”. These names obviously are based on the location and the surrounding area, but both contain the essential oils of the area. I am not sure how to read the name of each of these products, but it's supposed to be a reference to some place in Syria or the Middle East. If you are not from the area, you can also look up each of the soaps online.

Syrian Soap

One of the main ingredients in my soap recipe is the syrian soap called “Ramadan Gold”. It has the essential properties of the ghar soap tree as well as the linalool and limonoids found in the laurel berry. Although, for many years the product was known as just the “Ramadan Gold”, today, most online retailers have changed the name to reflect the new name. This brand of soap has been used by the Syrian people for hundreds of years as a form of cleansing, as well as a way to deal with the harsh weather conditions found in those areas. Many of the citizens of these areas have long handled olive oil and castile soap with success, so it is not surprising that they have embraced this new type of formula as well.



When shopping for a quality, all natural, free of chemicals, organic product, it is important to ensure that it contains the correct ingredients. “Ramadan Gold” is a perfect example of a brand of olive oil based, laurel soap that contains a free-radicals protector called “epsiber” as well as a fusion of several moisturizers. The formula also contains a combination of herbal extracts and vitamins to help heal the skin's underlying causes. When shopping for a product such as this one, it is important to be able to verify the chain of custody – in other words, the origin of the product is important in ensuring its purity.

Achyranthes Polycaratum

If you are interested in learning more about the benefits of “Ramadan Gold” as an alternative treatment, you can find information at your local library and on the World Wide Web. For example, the University of Pennsylvania states that the ingredient in this formula “contains a variety of antioxidants, which may be beneficial for the skin and for your general health.” Similarly, Ayurvedic healing centers in India state that the ingredient, “Bay Rum,” is effective in treating Psoriasis and other skin disorders. A further reference mentions the benefits of the Ayurvedic healing plant, “Achyranthes Polycaratum,” which is used in the “Ramadan Gold” formulation. These claims suggest that the all natural healthcare practitioners and scientists are correct when they recommend that this product be considered as an effective alternative to standard pharmaceutical treatments for psoriasis, dermatitis, eczema, boils, and any other skin inflammation or disease.


Ayurvedic Gold

For centuries, the people of the United States and the residents of the State of Jerusalem have enjoyed benefits from “Ramadan Gold” as a handy natural remedy for their skin problems. According to Ayurvedic practitioners in both countries, this hard liquid that is sometimes called “Ramadan Gold” or “Ayurvedic Gold” is used to treat the following: sunburn, wounds, cuts, arthritis, colds, flu, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, constipation, inflammation, dry skin, cuts, bruises, headaches, boils, sore throats, dry mouth, insect bites, blisters, abscesses, snakebites, athlete's foot, rashes, skin irritations, dry skin, bacterial infections, digestive complaints, oral candida, vomiting, PMS, anxiety, sleeplessness, and many other conditions. According to Ayurvedic practitioners in both countries, “Ramadan Gold” is also effective in treating skin conditions such as psoriasis, dermatitis, eczema, herpes, and other similar skin disorders. In fact, Ayurvedic medicine as a whole can be traced back to the uses of “Ramadan Gold”.

If you try this Ayurvedic recipe using this brandy or Aleppo soap copycat recipe, you will not only discover its healing benefits but will also love how it makes your hair shinier and softer. The hard part is coming up with a unique name like this! I've had friends who have given the recipe to me and they still don't know where I got it. You could look in some of the many recipe directories on the internet. Just make sure you find a resource that has an excellent description, testimonials, and pictures.
