Hi everyone-

I made a new soap last night and am looking for anyone in the U.S. who has eczema to try a free sample and give me feedback! I did not use any essential oils - which I usually do in my eczema balm but I did use NEEM OIL in this soap - which I must say gives it a slight smell of garlic?

While I was making this soap I became so hungry for chili cheese fries I had to race to the store and get the ingredients to make them! hahahaah - hope it doesn't have that same effect in the shower.

I will post up a pic later, but anyone who wants to give me feedback and try this soap - contact me ASAP - I made a very small batch so test samples will be limited.

Here is a small excerpt from Wikepedia about Neem Oil: Traditional Ayurvedic uses of neem include the treatment of Acne, fever, leprosy, malaria, ophthalmia and tuberculosis. Various folk remedies for neem include use as an anthelmintic, antifeedant, antiseptic, diuretic, emmenagogue, contraceptive, febrifuge, parasiticide, pediculocide and insecticide. It has been used in traditional medicine for the treatment of tetanus, urticaria, eczema, scrofula and erysipelas. Traditional routes of administration of neem extracts included oral, vaginal and topical use. Neem oil has an extensive history of human use in India and surrounding regions for a variety of therapeutic purposes. Puri (1999) has given an account of traditional uses and therapeutic indications and pharmacological studies of this oil, in his book on neem.

I used many other wonderful oils in this soap as well...but a girl can't give away all her secrets can she?

    I'd love to give it a try. I've been meaning to write a testimonial for your eczema balm.
