    This may be a dumb question, but what is soap base and where do I get it? Also where do I get the molds? I would like to try this

    Can’t wait to make this. I have suffered with migraines for 40 years. I have lavendar planted outside by bedroom windows, I wash my hands with lavender soap every night before bed. Taking Imitrex makes me almost as sick as the migraine.

    Do you have a receipe for oatmeal soap?

    Love all of the information.

    Thank you for sharing.

      If you are in the Nashville/ Goodlettsville area, I make homemade all natural soaps. I sell them at the Goodlettsville Farmers Market and mail out as well. One of my children has severe eczema so I needed a way to make sure I knew exactly what was in his soap. Thus, I now make and sell my own wonderful soap.

    Your recipe for soap calls for soap base and the link to buy it on Amazon says it is sold in 1 lb. blocks. How many bars of soap on average will that make?

    I have a 25 lb. of soap base and have no idea how to cut it up or weigh it for a loaf. Suggestions anyone???

    Is this glycerin soap base? It looks creamy. The link provided goes to glycerin base. Also, what makes the lavender swirls? Do you ever put crushed lavendar in ? Thank you.

    What is a good all natural soap for eczema? My 3 yr old grandson had it and it flairs up something terrible. Any other suggestions for eczema would be appreciated greatly. Than you.

  7. Katie on

    The ratio of 3 drops of vit E and 20-30 drops of lavender E.O. is based on how much soap base? Are you suggesting 3 drops vit E and 20-30 drops lavender per one pound of soap base?
