It has been a miserable and pathetic Spring here in the Ozarks. First we had that terrible ice storm that broke most of the trees here. Then we had a terrible deep freeze the first week of April that killed off everything but the weeds. We lost our whole grape crop too. This was a big bummer because I had worked so hard in pruning and trellising them. Things are just a little glum here and to very spring like.
To cheer things up, I am offering a Spring Soap Sale at http://www.freewebs.com/mamabyrd12/ if you are interested in a great deal on soap, go check it out.
Lye soap is good for so many things. Here is a list of my favorites (or at least the ones I can think of off the top of my head):
-The natural pH of lye soap removes the dirt from your skin without removing the essential skin oils thus leaving your skin soft.
-The pH of the lye soap also in naturally anti-bacterial and helps keep your hands germ free longer and without the harmful chemicals of anti-bacterial liquid soaps.
-The hand made lye soap has all its original glycerin which helps keep your skin soft.
-Lye soap is offensive to Ticks and Chiggers (if you don't know what that is your are very lucky!!) Washing with it helps keep them off longer. Using it after being bitten also helps you heal up faster.
- Lye soap is a must for people with Poison Ivy problems. If you are exposed to poison ivy, washing yourself off with lye soap in cool water will help prevent an outbreak. If do have an outbreak, washing with lye soap (especially the oatmeal scratchy kinds) will help you heal up faster. (how do we know this?? Bryan has a major allergy to poison ivy and cedar trees and this is what he uses now and hasn't had to have the shots for years).
-Lye soap is great for your complexion.
- because of its moisturizing properties, it makes a great shaving soap for legs and faces.
- Lye soap is very mild on your skin and is great for people with sensitive skin. I have a couple of kinds that are especially designed for that.
I could go on and on and on...... I love lye soap and what it does for you. It is another way of going back to natural things for your body.
If you've never tried it, give it a try. You will love it!!
