Medicinal Soap Making

Medicinal Soap Making

Your Soap Can Act as a Home Remedy!

As you know, one of the greatest benefits to making your own soap is your ability to create it in any way you see fit. You can make very attractive, art-like soap to add to your bathroom’s décor or you can make purely functional workshop soap without much aesthetic appeal and everything in between.

Some soap makers decide to delve deep into the powers the ingredients they choose in order to create medicinal soaps of their own design!

 

Medicinal Ingredients

Unlike most commercial soaps, handmade soaps often contain carrier and essential oils as the main ingredients. It is through manipulation of these natural ingredients that soap makers are able to create the beneficial, medicinal properties.

The healing properties are not limited to those possessed by carrier and essential oils. Other ingredients can be added to your soap to increase its therapeutic nature. These ingredients include oatmeal, herbs, herb-infused water (used in place of normal water in your recipes), butters such as cocoa and Shea, as well as clays!

 

Specific Ailments Your Soap Can Treat

Here is an incomplete list of ailments you soap can treat if it contains the proper ingredients.

  • Acne
  • Eczema
  • Psoriasis
  • Ringworm and Other Fungal Infections
  • Oily Skin
  • Dry Skin
  • Infected Cuts and Abrasions

Your soap’s ability to heal is limited only by your knowledge of the power held in natural ingredients. Far too often, we forsake the ancient natural remedies of old for modern solutions. Ironically, it is the natural remedy that is usually more effective and safer than the chemicals we use today.

I invite you to truly study the power of herbs, botanical oils, and other ingredients so that you can create powerful, natural soaps with incredible curative properties!

    I love the medicinal soaps, slaves etc. that I can make. I`m an L.P.N. and totally believe in them. They have worked for me and others but there is the F.D.A. On their website they don`t even RECOGNIZE essential oils. But yet they let cosmetic co. get away with selling products that are known carcinogenic!! This has to stop. We`’re being poisoned and paying for it more ways than one. We need to let congress know about this insanity. There would be extreme need for cancer research if we would just poisoning ourselves with toxic petrochemicals, CARCINOGENS etc. which is in almost EVERYTHING!!! Plastics, food, cosmetics, look around your house is there anything naturally made w/out chemicals or toxic preservatives? Of course not everything natural is good for you but majority was created for our benefits.
