Soap and water and common sense are the best disinfectants.

Saturday, March 13, 2010

I just got done making some soap. I had made a bunch for all my family at Christmas, and now everyone wants some more, and since I'm driving 6 hours to visit my mother, I thought I'd make her some.

OH has sensitive skin, and we decided to make some soap that would work for it.
It was basically "Here lets put this in too and see if it works."
Eventually we got a good recipe...though it sounds crazy.

olive oil, shea butter, almond milk, honey, finely ground oatmeal, and a hint of peppermint oil, for that extra boost on the mornings we need to wake up.
I've got no real recipe, we just kinda go by feel. I love it because I can get that clean feeling with no sticky feeling brand soaps give.
We got the soap stamp things at Micheal's, and I love the damask print one (top bar), it was the whole reason we bought the set!

love and glue guns,

I also have very sensitive skin, so I don't make myself soap,but I'll have to keep those ingredients in mind and try it!

I'm visiting from Friend Making Friday!

Wow. You are one ambitious lady. I have a friend that makes her own laundry soap, and I was going to try it but, time escapes me. Found you on NFF. And welcome to the world of blogging. It is addictive. :) Looking forward to your posts.
