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, butters such as cocoa and Shea, as well as clays!
Specific Ailments Natural Soap Can Treat
Here is an incomplete list of ailments natural soap can treat if it contains the proper ingredients.
* 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.
