I am one of those homesteading hippie freaks who makes her own soap, tooth powder, deodorant, laundry soap and cleaning supplies.
I have not always been like this, I in fact, was deeply addicted to The Works for toilets and only gave that toxic stuff up about a year ago. But I still miss it and I admit, still dream about its bright blue color and its ability to strip paint off a submarine or stains out of a loo. You know, like the way we dream about those people who were never good for you but had such amazing guitar skills that when you picked them up on the side of the road it was impossible to ask him to leave your single wide trailer with the blue suede bedspread...like that.
Yes, I have a thing for the color blue.
Back to all natural cleaners. Today's blog is brought to you by homemade soap. The real kind made with lye not glycerin blocks you get at Hobby Lobby. That's not soap, its just another hobby, from some megastore lobby. I'll talk about tooth powder some late night when the snow is 6 feet deep outside.
I used to make and sell soap for our retail farm store under the name The Midlife Farmwife . Now, I have no such fancy label or a webpage for ordering, its just you and me right here right now. Maybe later after I get rolling I'll do a Facebook page again but for now, I'm keeping it simple or if you prefer, ultra exclusive.
All of my soaps are made with natural ingredients for color (see the picture below) and scent. I use only high quality base oils and essential oils, no fragrance oils, So if you want something in patchouli, cedarwood, geranium rose or lavender for example, I'm your gal but if want something that smells like bubblegum or White Diamonds, you'll need to visit Walmart.
