  1. i was going to try it but after looking to see what the oil would cost and figured out that it is still cheaper to just buy the regular stuff but i am still open to trying something like this and if anyone has anyother ideas please let me know

  2. I was always shy of buying coconut oil for things when I started making my own health and beauty products, but when you begin making them and you make more of them, you will quickly see the cost savings over all.

  3. Also, I often add bentonite clay powder to shaving soaps. It is to help the razor glide and is a great over all product. I make my own soaps from scratch, too.
