Hen & Chicks Soap

Why I started making soap.
Honey N Oats is the first soap recipe I made. My children and I were tested for allergies and found out that we are all sensitive to milk (yes, even raw) and wheat. I began trying to eliminate these things from our diet. I also began to research alternative things to use for our body care regimen to help our immune systems get a break to repair themselves. At this same time I started menopause and I started having breakouts on my chin and neck. I had been a faithful user of Dove sensitive soap for many years and I began to notice it just wasn't helping with my acne. I was told by a friend about a company who made a face soap with a 0 on the EWG scale. I tried them and loved their soaps. I started buying them and had my teenage son start using them and he noticed a difference. At the time I was paying $6 for a 3.5 oz bar but over the next few months they increased the price to $8 a bar. Plus I was paying $10 for shipping from California. We were also hooked on Dr. Bronner's Peppermint bar for the bath. So we were spending alot on soap and shipping. I am always trying to figure out how to do the things we do better or for less money so I began to read about soap making. Would you believe with our recent move God placed in my life a friend I knew from a while back who made soap! We talked and talked and I read more and read more. Made my first order of essential oils, bought oils, round up my spare pots and measuring cups, watched a few videos and made my first batch of soap. I have since made a batch of Cocoa Mint to replace Dr. Bronner's and several other favorites like Lavender Castile and Almond & Cocoa Butter.
I hope you will try my handmade soap and fall in love with the quality and love that goes into each batch.
Review by Jill's Home Remedies
It has a wonderfully mild scent, not offensive or perfume-y like commercial bar soap. It lathers beautifully and washes off cleanly. This is good stuff, folks! ~ Jill

The Oats and Honey soap has great fragrance, you can smell both the oats and the honey, but it is not an overwhelming fragrance. That would make it a perfect soap for a man, too. My skin is definitely softer than it was before I started using this soap. This would be an awesome soap for dried, cracked winter hands. ~ Linda
