If you have sensitive skin like me, then this honey-oatmeal soap might be just what you’re looking for.
Over the past week, my kitchen has turned into Little Suzie Homemaker. I’ve been cooking up a storm and also creating candles and my own soaps. Now that I’m on lockdown, it seems as though my creative side has decided to finally show through. While I’ve always loved creating, it took a back seat to my travel; however, now that all my travel plans have been canceled, I’ve decided why not get back to doing what I used to love.
While I never really stopped creating at home, I just never shared much of it with the world but instead kept it to myself.
My Amazon Prime subscription has finally been put to use. Gone are the days of running to the store for supplies; instead, I sit at home, place an order, and have it all delivered. I don’t have to worry about social-distancing, and being the social introvert that I am, this works out perfectly for me.
Now back to my soap making. It’s something that I’ve always enjoyed doing, and coming up with new scents and new ideas always give me a thrill. Recently I made a hand-foaming soap, that’s so economical that it’ll have you wondering why you’ve never made it before. I also created an exfoliating lavender soap that I just love using in the shower.
This honey-oatmeal soap that I’m sharing today is also very simple to make, and for those who suffer from skin conditions such eczema, it’s a lifesaver. As you may know, oatmeal helps soothes skin irritation, and honey is also great for dry and damaged skin. Honey and oatmeal together work wonders, and using it daily can reduce irritation. My eldest uses it for her breakouts and swears by it.
I really loved the way this honey-oatmeal soap turned out. Consider making a few and keeping them in the shower and a few at your bathroom sink to wash your hands. You can also keep them at your kitchen sink since it’s gentler on your hands than dish detergent. Or give them as gifts, your recipient would love them!
