Does anybody use wool wash bars on themselves? If so, which ones? I like the idea of the lanolin, and heavy moisturizing. We have tha hardest water on the planet, seriously, I really think it is, and I feel squeaky after a shower, then itchy and tight.

Otherwise, is there any handmade soap/non-soap item out there that won't leave my skin feeling like a rubber balloon?

I was wondering something similar. I've left my wool wash bar on the bathroom sink and wondered if it was ok for people to use it. So I'm curious, too.

Hehehe I've thought about it too because I got a sugar cookie scented one a couple of weeks ago and it smells so good I want to take a bite out of if :LOL I have NO clue if this is safe to use on skin though.

i've used wow bars on youngest ds, they've done wonders with his eczema itchies. rarely on myself though, because i'm overly oily, although they're great for postpartum dry skin.

Not sure about those wool wash soap bars, but I know that the soap my dh buys me has lanolin in it and feels GREAT (also notice a dramatic decrease in bug bites too!) but I don't think it is "natural"

I'm hopelessly addicted to Yuzu WOW. I have been using it on mommy "spa" days only because I wanted it to last (can't wait to order more). My skin always feels wonderful afterwards. Off to go browse Monkey Suds (again :LOL).
