Homemade soap recommendation
During my five days without hot water following the tornado, I used this exclusively. Having to wash in the bathroom sink with a washcloth and icy cold water did not lead me to use an excess of water for rinsing. In the past if I have not not rinsed soap properly, I got all itchy. Since I was only washing the necessary parts during my five-day ordeal, I was not keen on excessive rinsing with ice water....or itching. Emily's soap works. I did request unscented, I think.
My flying-pig soap did not need lots of rinsing from my body to make me feel it was gone from my skin. I don't know what the difference is, but I highly recommend Emily's soap. I have very sensitive skin and only use Dove. I just wish it had been a setting hen soap.
In the event of any crisis where soap was unavailable, I am stocked up on Dove. This also free Dove soap is the perfect price. However, I am rethinking this stockpile. Four bars of Dove is a good stockpile since I only use about one bar every six months. Actually, I have eight bars. No, I don't let the soap free range in the tub or sit in a pool of soap dish water between uses. So, it lasts me forever, taking one bath each day and sometimes two.
My bar soap is not for hand-washing. I use a pump with various shampoos that did not work out for me or I acquired free. Dove is not wasted on hands. Hence, a two-year supply consists of four bars.
Back to Emily's soap. Try it; you will love it. So the spammers don't get her email address, contact her at this address, just change it to address form--thayerbooks2002 AT Yahoo dot com. I thought she had a blog, but she does not. Emily sells used books on Amazon, too.
I know I am late coming to this realization, but have you found that homemade soap is easier on sensitive skin?
