-Purple gromwell root-

Chinese use purple gromwell root infused oil with other herbs making purple gromwell ointment - This ointment history can be track back to Ming Dynasty. Purple gromwell ointment most of common uses is to treat chilblains, chapped skin, and applied to rash, burns as it have antibacterial efficacy for trauma and infections of the skin, and moisturize the skin to promote wound recovery.
My older son have eczema when he were little and I learned to use purple gromwell infused oil making soap for him and it does help on his itch skins /healing cracking skin.


-Fair trade Unrefined Shea Butter from Ghana-
Shea butter and cocoa butter is next important ingredients to my soap and I use high percentage not only it brings the moisturize also they help harden my soap due to they are coconut & palm free soaps!


高比例的紫草浸泡油
還好沒有想像中的秒殺
所以能夠匆容的攪攪勻
但是還是挺快就稠了
不到半小時就攪定
只是事前的備油/清油瓶很是費時…
做完這鍋頗有了一樁心頭事的感覺

之前做的星空終於在捨不得用捨不得用之下
還是讓老大用的差不多了
趕緊來補鍋大鍋的
想用羊奶
可老沒碰上過期洋奶要出清的
而一瓶好好的羊奶要價5美金ㄝ…
先生買了好牛奶
想說無魚蝦也好
牛奶就牛奶唄
可先生冷冷的說
那是拿來喝的
乖乖的還給他- 給小孩喝…
(我用奶粉! 怎樣!)
拿一包奶粉在手想用多少好呢
後來心一橫
整包下!
有98克 包裝上說加()水可以沖出3/4加崙牛奶…

這次的紫草一點也不紫!!! #$%^&*@
最早請皂友買的那最好
泡出來很紅 做出來很紫
可以到紫的發黑
可這鍋…竟然是灰色的啦! 哀油!
還買了好多好多耶…

開陽雙星

做這鍋
另外值得一記的是
我不是用刀切開的!!
我用線! (不是線刀 就是縫衣服的線)
很好玩
我的皂的硬度一向是軟的 由於無椰棕之故
再加上剛脫模濕度高
就跟用線來切滷蛋一樣容易 (我就是突然想到小姑用線切滷蛋切的很漂亮)
當然有切歪的
線沒拉好就歪扭囉
