CarrieJ asked for a 100% lard recipe….. it looks just like the recipe you got at the retreat (I hope!)

Hmmm….no bubbly and no cleansing….  What would this be good for?  Looks like this is why we put coconut oil in soap recipes!

Clover made me do it.

Lard-based soaps cleanse quite well, though perhaps not so efficiently as those with coconut oil or other oils that bubble more.  My grandmother used only old-fashioned lye soap as her laundry soap, 100 percent lard base, not super-fatted, for Grandpa's shop overalls.  Trust me, there's no dirt like the black gunk from a machinist's shop, and her homemade lye soap worked better than anything else.  That recipe still works and I used it for the old-fashioned lye soap I sold when I had the soap business — old ladies would line up early while I was setting up at some locales to stock up on it for spot treatment, especially collars and cuffs.

I was looking for a soap for excema sufferers.  I have two people who have asked me to try making them some.  100% lard came up and 100% olive oil came up.  I'm going to try the Castille soap Friday 7% 100% Olive Oil (with trace amounts of salt/sugar added).  AND try the 100% lard.  Any ideas….anyone?

Suzanne, Dede & CindyP made me do it...HAHAHAHA!

Carrie J –

For eczema, some type of pure soap is best.  Unfortunately, there's no single best for every eczema sufferer.  I've had customers who used only my lye soap, others that preferred a castille formula, and some who swore by my unscented goats milk soap and still ask when I'm going to start making it again.  Reactions can be individual so what works best for one person isn't necessarily what's best for another.  Other factors are involved, too, and the eczema can be a symptom of a larger problem.  In many cases, the best you can hope for is to devise a formula that doesn't aggravate the eczema as much as commercial soaps.

Just my experience . . . your mileage may vary.
