 Here's a recipie for a eco-alternative laundry soap,
It cleans just as good, if not better, than commercial laundry and dish soap. There is no fosphorus, surfactants, alcohols or bleaches, than normally pollute the water, and air, and irritate the skin. It has natural whiteners, disinfectants and fabric softeners, and is bio degradeable. Plus, it is cheap, cheap, cheap, to make.

Eco-alternative Laundry Soap:

2 Bars pure glycerine soap
1 1/2 gallons water
1 Box generic baking soda
1 bottle hydrogen peroxide (cuts and scraps kind)
1 TBSP Favorite essential oil

Cheese grater
Soup stock pot
2 empty liquid laundry soap containers

Grate your soap bars finely. Fill your pot with water, then grated soap. Cook on medium until dissolved (about 20 min.), stiring occassionally. Take off of the burner heat, add baking soda, and peroxide. Wisk well. Let cool enough to put into your jugs, and add essential oil, wisk, and pour into your containers.

Use- 1 regular laundry cap fulls per load.
2 ultra laundry cap fulls per load.

Tami MacLeod:
Dish soap

1 bar pure glycerin soap
1/2 Gallon water
1/2 box generic baking soda
1/2 bottle hydrogen peroxide
1tsp favorite essential oil

Follow laundry soap making directions.

Use- 1 tbsp per load of dishes

Tami MacLeod:
This balm works wonderfully on callouses for feet or hands and makes a great softner for heels, ankles and elbows, as well.

Fills a 4oz container.
50 ml olive oil (not pomace)
25 ml avocado oil
12.5 ml jojoba oil
2.5 ml vitamin e oil
5 ml emu oil
1/4 oz beeswax (a bit more if you want a harder consistency)
4 drops lavender eo
4 drops rosemary eo

This balm is very oily. But it's the oils that moisturize. It's best used when going to bed, applied semi liberally. But applied in minute amounts, it will soak in completely after about 5 min or so.

Tami MacLeod:
Moon Soap
3 parts sandalwood
2 parts camphor
1 part lemon
1 part eucalyptus

Chop a 4 oz. bar of Castile soap and melt with 1/4 cup boiling water in a saucepan. Let cool slightly and add 30-40 drops of the above blend, and roll into balls or pour into molds.

Use before rituals on the Full Moon to attune with it's energies.
