Black Sesame Alkanet Soap

This soap came from a Chinese remedy called "Alkanet Remedy". The main ingredients of this remedy are black sesame oil, Chinese angelica root, alkanet and beewax. Some people would add menthol crystals for the cooling effect.

This remedy gives skin the relief of insect bites, itchiness and diaper rash. Sesame oil is known for its moisturizing benefits. I made a batch of this remedy. It works! However, I really can't stand the smell of "black sesame oil" which is too strong for me. So....I transformed the remedy to soap! :P
