Recipe by Romany The Cat

From "The Body Bible" by Pamela Allardice. I have made this once and it worked well as a cleanser, great to use before having a scrub. I found that the granulated lecithen took ages to dissolve so next time i might grind it in a mortar and pestle and see what the results are. This mix goes a long way, I made mine last year and I am still using it.
