Hemp is a strain of the cannabis plant used in many industrial applications & as a food source, it differs from recreational cannabis drug use in that the strain has little amounts of the active compound that gets you high THC. So just as a human is not an ape, hemp is not sativa.
Even at that the hemp powder would be the isolated protein from the plant, it wouldn't be the plant ground up into powder form. Just like sugar does not contain the fibers/vitamins of the cane it comes from.
Hemp is a popular protein powder used in shakes and smoothies and also a milk substitute. It has a great nutritional range rich in omegas & amino acids. It is perfectly fine to use & will not show up in drug tests or have any side effects like smoking weed as it DOES NOT contain THC which gets you stoned. So yes you can lick the soap LOL
My Hippie Soaps are made using hemp seed oil base and sometimes powder, the oil helps balance dry skin and is anti-ageing, its absorbed easily into the skin, has anti-oxidant and moisture balancing properties and combats skin irritations.
Hemp soap also contains hemp seed powder which acts as a mild exfoliator giving your skin a youthful glow.
So there now you know this has been HEMP 101 :)
Goat milk contains lots of nutrients like fats, proteins and other hormones that naturally benefit the skin. The benefits of goat milk soap can be felt by people suffering from various skin conditions or those just wanting to maintain youthful, rejuvenated skin.
Goat milk soap has a pH level similar to human skin and can benefit the skin by protecting skin from daily bacterial and chemical invasions.Acne
Goat milk soap benefits people with acne-prone skin because the proteins in milk kill acne-causing bacteria.
Goat milk soap sloughs off dead skin because of the alpha-hydroxy acids found in the milk.
The moisturizing benefits of goat milk soap surpass anything in a commercial (detergent/soap ) because of the natural creams in goat’s milk.
Handmade goat milk soap benefits people with sensitive skin because it doesn't contain additives like alcohol, petroleum and preservatives which reduces the risk of skin irritation and allergic reactions.
Eczema, a skin condition caused by red, itchy skin patches, benefits from goat milk soap since the natural nutrients in goat milk moisturizes skin and reduces itchiness in the skin.
Here is what you will see:>> Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS) & Sodium Laureth Sulfate (SLES) used in commercial made soaps.
Its used to provide you with what they say is a luxurious lather. but really it there to allow their (detergent) soap to lather up in hard water conditions, and makes it more lucrative to consumers.
What they forgot or don't tell you on the package is that it will build up in your body over time.Wonder how many health issues it causes?? scary huh.
I really doubt that anything used to DEGREASE motors, floors etc are going to be sensitive on anyones skin!!!
According to the scientific description from Wikipedia, "Like all detergent surfactants, sodium lauryl sulfate removes oils from the skin, and can cause skin and eye irritation." Here is the full story on the chemical compounds that make up SLS's - CHECK IT OUT: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sodium_lauryl_sulfate
How good can this be for you and your skin I ask? NOT!!!
I refuse to use of that ___ in my home, on my family or on my pets. I use my baby soap bars or sensitive skin soaps on my dogs.
When I make my soap recipe, I prefer to use oil from a simple bean product, Castor Beans. That oil is what I feel is best for my in soaps along with other great butters and oils.They are natural and non toxic to our skin or pets.
I get moisturizing, silky, clean soapy feeling, plus it adds a bit of bubble to the soap bar. It might not lather like those detergent (soap) bars from the department stores have, just remember its not the amount of bubbles that clean your skin after all. And, yes it may cost you more than lab manufactured so called soaps - but it's far safer!
Go ahead, check your products ...Feel safe with them? I know whats in the products I offer and its none of that chemical compound junk!
Thanks for reading my lil rant and I hope you care :-)
I DO NOT ENDORSE THIS BOOK I JUST THOUGHT IT WAS INTERESTING ....... You might think its worth a shot.
Here is a brief excerpt from that page:
When you follow the 4-step Action Plan I outline in The Eczema Cure ebook, you’ll learn…
The Eczema Cure also teaches absolutely everything you must know to heal from the inside out with Real food…starting TODAY.
So, what exactly is “soap”? After all, we’ve heard of large corporations try to downplay their effectiveness, saying their “beauty bars”, “body bars” and “bath bars” are far superior. They claim that their formulas are super moisturizing, gentle for your skin and aren’t ‘drying’ like soap.
The official definition of soap is “a substance used for washing and cleansing purposes, usually made by treating a fat with an alkali, as sodium or potassium hydroxide, and consisting chiefly of
the sodium or potassium salts of the acids contained in the fat.” The chemical reaction of these ingredients mixing and forming soap and glycerin itself is called saponification. When this happens correctly, no lye (sodium hydroxide) remains.
Soap’s been made this way for centuries. There are soaps for the face, body, hair, pets, household purposes- you name it! But are all soaps created equally? No, and neither are they “bad” or excessively drying – if you chose the right kind.
Commercial soaps, like Dove, Dial, Irish Spring, Caress, Lever 2000, or Ivory are available everywhere for very low prices. Some of them were marketed as deodorant soaps, and these could be especially drying to your skin. Soaps like these are better classified as detergents. You know, the stuff you use to wash your clothes and dishes. They can also include tons of preservatives, cheap synthetic fillers, and fragrances that can flare up allergies and sensitivities in some people.
The alternative? Using handmade soap, or soaps with pure ingredients. Not only are they gentler than those harsh detergent bars, but they are usually much more moisturizing, come in a variety of scents, and last much longer than the average drugstore bar. Below, I’ll briefly discuss 5 reasons why these soaps are just all-around better than the commercial stuff.

Patchouli has long been used in skin care for its ability to help alleviate such issues as acne-prone conditions, eczema, inflammation, and cracked, chapped, irritated skin. It is often found in anti-aging skin care for its cell-rejuvenating properties and its ability to lessen the look of scars. Patchouli’s anti-fungal properties make it useful in treating athlete’s foot, and for hair it helps alleviate signs of dandruff and balance oiliness.
The nervous system definitely benefits from the aromatherapeutic scent of Patchouli. It helps reduce tension, insomnia and anxiety, while uplifting the mind. Its deep, rich, intoxicating aroma has also been used as an aphrodisiac. Maybe the “love children” of the 60s were on to something! It is used today to scent textiles, to help repel insects, and is used extensively in the flavoring industry. And although the undiluted aroma of Patchouli is oftentimes unpopular, when it is used in small amounts it adds depth and beauty to almost any blend. As a base note and fixative in natural perfumery, nothing beats Patchouli. This is truly one multifaceted oil.

Recipe: Homemade Dishwasher Tabs as found on BA
Did you know that you can make your very own dishwasher detergent tabs? It’s super easy and when stored in a glass apothecary jar, it becomes a pretty counter top accessory in your kitchen that will leave your friends asking how you made them and if they can have the recipe! Here’s the simple steps:
2 cups baking soda/sodium bicarbonate (cuts grease)
2 cups Borax (natural cleaner/disinfectant)
1/2 cup kosher or epsom salt (helps with hard water)
1/2 cup vinegar (helps bind the ingredients and provides extra cleaning power)
20 drops lemon essential oil (antibacterial, cleaning power, great smell!)
Mix all of the ingredients together working with a wooden spoon (be ready for a little fizzing when the vinegar meets the baking soda!). Be careful when working with the lemon essential oil. It is very strong, so use with caution! Scoop the mixture into two ice cube trays, pressing and packing the mixture firmly into each square. Set the trays in a dry, sunny spot and allow to sit and harden for 24 hours. Once hardened, transfer cubes to container with a lid, such as a glass apothecary jar with cap.
To use, add 1 cube to your dishwasher detergent compartment and splash 1/2 to 1 cup of vinegar into the bottom of the dishwasher (this step is key to avoiding cloudy glassware) and start your machine. That’s it! An easy alternative to store bought detergent tablets.
I would like to thanks everyone for making my first day online with my soaps such a great day!! It was truly a blessing for me.\\
Let me know if there is any scents you would like to see in a soap bar..... Have a great night~
