Wine Soap / Jabón de Vino

I have been experimenting with making a nourishing and moisturizing soap with an amazing local red wine for Bodegas Perfer. He estado experimentando con la elaboración un jabón nutritivo y hidratante de vino tinto maravilloso de una Bodega de esta zona – Bodegas Perfer.
No matter what Essential Oil blend I use for the scent, I can still detect the wonderful natural wine scent coming through... Con cualquier mezcla de aceites esenciales que uso para el aroma, sigue oliendo con un toque fabuloso de vino tinto…
Aside from red wine, this soap has been made with local organic extra-virgen olive oil, sweet almond oil, organic shea butter, argan oil, coconut oil, castor oil and essential oils of lavender, cedarwood and ylang ylang. Aparte del vino tinto, este jabón se ha elaborado con aceite de oliva extra-virgen y ecológico, aceite de almendras dulces, manteca de karité ecológica, aceite de argán, aceite de coco, aceite de ricino y aceites esenciales de lavanda, cedro y ylang ylang…


  1. These are so rich so delicate looking. I can imagine how wonderful on my skin. So wish Spain were closer to my farm. Tell me did you let the wine sit very long before using?

    1. Hi Donna, Thanks for commenting!! I didn't follow advice... I just subbed most of the water for wine and mixed in lye very slowly while liquid was on ice. I am sure I will be experimenting with different methods as well. Just wanted to keep as many of the natural wine properties as possible. xoxoox Jen
