Tips & Tricks with our Soap

Wow that's bright

Every week I like to add tips and tricks which can be done with Zen Skin Products. I  would love to hear about any clever ideas you all may have. Share, there are no secrets here…what happens here goes everywhere.

Todays tip is about using left over bits and pieces of soap.

  1. Take any leftover pieces of soap, or grate some off a bar. Place in container of choice.

  2. Fill with clean warm water, soap will dissolve.

I made this mason jar dispenser in 5 minutes, very easy. This soap in the picture has added Neon Color to show off soap better. My soaps rarely have color.

Now this will make a watery liquid soap which can be used for washing hands or easy clean up. There are Liquid Castile soaps which can be made which are much thicker, this is about re-purposing.

Have Fun with this, children can take part in this simple project.

Leaving One’s Comfort Zone



Yes, this is a Soap & Skin Care blog but………I really need some inspiration and a good friend to get advice from. So I rely on Bernadette Logue. Ok so I never have met Bernadette and she is not actually a friend of mine. Regardless she has my Inspiration Attention.

Each day I’m making things happen. My focus is always my Farm, but I need to share my passion of healthy bodies for people and animals. It really all comes together in Nature. On our farm we all eat the same foods, use the same medicines from nature, and live in Harmony. Of course there are days which seem like a dark cloud in over us, then my lotus heart blooms and all is right once again.

I want to include  in this blog not just what we put on our bodies, also what we fill our bodies with. Thoughts can make us sick with worry, or bring us to a place of contentment. Zen Skin is about becoming a glowing body of white light.

I hope you enjoy the insight this post may offer. Please leave a comment if this is happening in your life. We all need to know we are not alone in our fears.

Have a Brilliant Day, Nicole
