Liberty Natural Products:
This is a nice place to shop and the prices are great. The only problem is you have to spend $50 for a minimum.

This is one of the best sites I have ever seen. There is no minimum and the pricing is excellent.


Herbs for the Skin

This is a brief list of herbs that are helpful to the skin and can be used in soap making:

Burdock: Decoction of the fresh leaves makes a good wash for soars and may be helpful for acne

Calendula: A very good salve for wounds can be made from the dried flowers or leaves, from the juice pressed out of the fresh flowers or from the tincture. The salve or dilute tincture is also good for bruises, sprains, pulled muscles, sores, and boils. The New Age Herbalist states that Calendula is cleansing astringent, promotes healing of wounds and toning.

Chamomile: external swelling, inflammatory pain or congested neuralgia, and will relive where other remedies have failed, proving invaluable for reducing boils. The antiseptic powers are stated to be 120 times stronger than seawater. A decoction of the flowers and poppy heads is used hot for abscesses (10 parts chamomile to 5 parts poppy in 100 parts distilled water). Makes an excellent shampoo according to Culpepper. He also says that bathing with a decoction of chamomile removes weariness and eases pain to whatever part of the body it is employed. (A Modern Herbal by Mrs. M Greive) According to the New Age Herbalist, this herb is cleansing, cooling, lightening, and anti-inflammatory.

Chickweed: The fresh leaves can be made into an ointment or bruises, irritations, and other skin problems.
