Basic Lye Soap
Used for hundreds of years as an all purpose soap and to treat many common ailments.
Customers comments have revealed that regular bathing with old fashioned lye soap helps with symptoms of psoriasis, eczema, and common dry itchy skin.
for acne, most people wash their face three times a day with lye soap and bathe daily with it. Basic Lye Soap may work because it is a pure mild soap with no chemicals, detergents or preservatives to cause skin reactions. Most of all, it is made locally here in the USA! For poison ivy and oak rash, most people say to wash as soon after exposure as possible. Wash and rinse the irritated portion at least three times per day. After rinsing, place soap lather on on the rash and leave it on until the next washing.
Sunburn is usually relieved within minutes by placing a generous amount of lather on the sunburn. Leave the lather on overnight. Folks say that it seems to pull the heat out better than other commercial products.
Our customers have said that mosquito and chigger bites are helped in the same way as the sunburn treatment.
It also appears that insects do not like the taste of lye soap no matter where it is. Some folks have placed some around the base of a tree to prevent an insect invasion.
In addition, mosquitoes seem to be kept at bay by placing a little lather on bare skin.
It is a well known fact that old fashioned lye soap the kind that grandma used to make, is also great for clothing stains. We also make shredded lye soap intended for fresh and clean laundry (with instructions),
