For all of you that have requested my oatmeal and honey soap without the strawberry seeds, it has been done.  This soap smells so good that you might want to eat it.  Both honey and oatmeal are wonderful ingredients for your skin, so that makes this is a great face soap.  It will take a couple of weeks for it to cure, but you can pre-order now.  If you prefer the exfoliating version, it is under the specialty soap page on my website.TLP Pig Link

I have a wonderful customer that loves my Tea Tree Soap.  He was buying an over the counter cleanser for his adult acne which was not working very well.  We talked and he decided to try my Tea Tree Soap and now he no longer needs the OTC products.  Tea tree is a wonderful oil. It is a natural antiseptic and works great to help clear blimishes.  You should give it a try.

200371071-001When you’re covered with poison ivy or worse, mosquito bites, it can be extremely painful. Not to mention very itchy.  Aloe lotion only works for a little while. Calamine lotion smells bad and cakes on your skin. No matter what you use the itchiness tends to reappear.

A better alternative is using oatmeal soap. It’s all natural. It soothes your skin as well as takes away the irritation. It makes your skin feel refreshed. It can come in a bar form and even liquid. You have the choice of either taking a shower or a bath.

Calming a Fussy Baby

baby-bathBabies are fussy for a variety of reasons. Sometimes they’re hungry, or they need a diaper change, or maybe they’re over tired. When my baby is fussy for no apparent reason I like to give her a calming bath. Now babies are notorious for putting their hands, feet, and anything within their grasp into their mouths, so I’m vigilant about the type of bath products I expose my baby to.

I like to add an all natural mixture of goat’s milk and cornstarch to a warm bath. The warm water is calming while the milk and cornstarch mixture soothes and nourishes my baby’s skin. In fact, the mixture works so well that I’ve taken to using handmade goat milk soap during my own showers. The creamy, rich complex feels wonderful against my skin and the lavender scent of my favorite goat milk soap brand is just heavenly.

Soothing Eczema

If you suffer from chronic eczema chances are you’ve spent a lot of money on lotions, soaps, and shampoos which all claim to cure dry skin. Most of the time those products have many ingredients that are harmful to your skin, in addition to being harmful to your finances. Thankfully, there are organic alternatives that are much less expensive than the over-the-counter medicated soaps and shampoos you’ve been using. Goat milk soap is one such example.

Goat’s milk has several healthful properties such as alpha hydroxyl acid (AHA). AHA is a skin exfoliate that removes dead skin cells, allowing new skin cells to come through. Goat milk soap utilizes glycerin in its production. Glycerin is a humectant, meaning it helps your skin retain moisture. Moisturizing, of course, being the most important measure an eczema sufferer should complete every day. Stop wasting your money on products that don’t work and make the switch to goat milk soap for dry skin relief!

Natural Health And Hygiene

body-washWhile some people don’t realize it, salves, cremes, and lotions that are put onto the skin are absorbed into the body. These skincare products often contain chemicals or toxins that would be dangerous to ingest, but they seep right into the skin and people don’t have a second thought about it. It’s important to realize the dangers of exposure to the chemicals and toxins used in health and hygiene products. Using natural soap, homemade body wash and other all-natural products is the path to perfect health. Natural products don’t contain the dangerous chemicals and toxins that most other products contain, and it’s important to use natural products on the body.

When you use natural products, you’re also helping the environment. Natural products are free from chemicals and toxins, and true natural products are also healthy to the environment because their ingredients were cultivated and harvested through natural and non-invasive processes.
