Mugwort is very popular in Chinese folk medicine – the most famous using in Chinese traditional therapy treatment is 灸 Moxibustion using moxa made from dried mugwort.
One of girlfriend sharing her experience on website how she use mugwort to healing her women problem that bother her for a quite long time and she mentioned this knowledge is just like common sense for her mother!
From Google, mugwort bath can be treating: dermatitis, eczema, scabies, urticarial, folliculitis have a certain effect.


From Google, Houttuynia cordata is also good for skin.
A girlfriend from Taiwan she shared her info that Houttuynia is not just for eating as veggie Houttuynia also can be used to treat skins problem and it have been used in used in folk medicine for diuresis and detoxification and herbal medicine for its antiviral, antibacterial and more…
The experience I have with Houttuynia is using Houttuynia to brew tea and use it to treat my son’s allergies running nose and it works great!

The green color is not from colorant and it is not from green clay.

魚腥草是挺有許多好處的草藥
香港/粵人也常用魚腥草煲湯水
越南人更是在家常吃的生菜裡有新鮮的魚腥草
(他們的萌 或是越南米紙春捲的新鮮生菜有薄荷紫蘇魚腥草)

艾草除了在端午時節與昌蒲掛在門前外
中國人用艾草入藥可還真不是一天兩天的事兒
別說中國最著名的針,灸
光這個灸就是少不了艾的哪

打此記錄時google了一下
竟有人分享如何如何的治癒了她的婦科問題 而那女生分享說在她母親嘴裡說出來好似天經地義老一輩都知道如何用艾就能輕鬆解決那問題
似乎使用艾草就是生活中的一部份

不管是艾草浴 還是戟草浴(魚腥草)
對有濕疹有過敏的皮膚都是有幫助的

(以前從來都不提我用來入皂的草藥功效
可是看到那日本人把紫草與艾草講得好像這些草藥是日本的一樣就不高興
這些明明都是出自中國的嘛!尤其是艾草!

這鍋是特為我姐做的
之前做過一鍋涼涼薄荷
她形容這塊肥皂”溫潤如玉”
(哈! 有沒有這麼誇張呀)
那鍋是少數我做的肥皂有20趴椰子油的
肥皂後來是淡淡有些透略微有些葉瑩光黃的綠色
顏色是來自浸泡油本身

這次不僅用了薄荷浸泡油
也把艾草魚腥草浸泡油加進陣容
這些都對皮膚很好的
姐夫用也是很好的
(成皂薄荷味道中帶著挺重的魚腥草味兒)

這配方TRACE的真快!
本來很擔心做出來的皂沒有綠色或是顏色過身變醜
還好雖然深了些如波菜色可是還算不錯



(肥皂的顏色完全是天然的
完全來自浸泡油喔
沒有綠石泥
也沒有人工色料喔! )

皂模是便宜買的 - 商店用的首飾(戒指)展示TRAY便宜出清
我覺得高度很是適合買了一個
意外的是能裝2000克油量的皂!
以前用過一次可是卻不記得…

好久沒做皂
這鍋竟然忘記放軟磷脂

今天天氣還涼涼的
希望不會出油水囉


後記 –
雖然天涼很好但是怕皂寶著涼
所以還是先放浴室內
結果好快就果凍!
看看似乎有點像是要變成爛泥了
馬上移到窗邊去吹風降溫…
表面綠的還蠻漂亮的
內裡顏色就有些深囉
這鍋還是用縫衣線切的
有一塊線沒喬好就給切歪啦

還要幫姐姐再做玫瑰皂 & Q10蠶絲金盞紫草皂
希望天氣不要熱得太快
還有蠶絲快快現身(它失蹤了 幾次要做都找不到)
