    Parents with children who have very sensitve skin.

    Faithy, my heart goes out to you and your son. My younger brother has ADHD and so does my 5 year old son. I am trying to keep him off meds as long as I can. It is a struggle but, we try to work with him as much as we can 1 on 1.

    Oatmeal baths?

    I make an oatmeal bath too. I found these plain muslin bags. They come in different sizes and don't cost much. You can save $$$ by buying your oats out of the bulk bins (even Organic).

    SFIC base Co-op interest?

    I only use All or dreft in the laundry. Since we have a HE washer I can use less detergent. I am going to order my butters this weekend. Have you tried WSP aloe & shea butter? From the reviews people go nuts over it. I also have to get a stainless steel bowl or two.

    scoops for bath salts and other products

    I love them!! Even though it may seem excessive packaging they are made of hard melamine and are reusable. You can keep them for years.

    Lane, I had never thought of that!! I have tried goats milk both base and added to a clear base as well as oatmeal and aloe. She has done better with this than commercial (out of the store) soaps. I was wanting to try CP so that I could make a bar with flax seed oil. Flax is wonderful for the...
