melanie makes and sells marvelous soaps that are highly superfatted and great for all skin types.

I hate chopping onions and garlic. I made guacamole today, and since I can't eat chilis, I heat it up with onion and garlic. Those smells can stay with my hands through a couple of showers. Her coffee and cocoa soap, an odor-killing soap which doesn't appear to be a production soap (yet?), killed the odor completely. In one wash of my hands! I was amazed. Mel, you need to make more of that stuff for the foodies. The sensitive skin soap is wonderful for my daughter's oily facial skin and my dry facial skin, and I'm well stocked with several varieties of her other soaps.

I'm a soap junkie. I've found my favorite supplier.

good for you sis... I generally just use dish soap for my hands. But then, my hands are sort of rough and tumbly... hehehehe... Glad you found a good supplier...

Love always...

I looove her soaps, we just recently got a few sample bars, and they are DELISH!

Our only problem is that there are too many wonderful flavors to choose from, and only so much shower time. :D

Hot paprika
Have you tried Hot Paprika for heat? It isn't a chili although it is a pepper and the hot is a different taste and sensation compared to chili heat.

I actually prefer it to the chili heat in eggs and lots of other things.

Re: Hot paprika
Actually, I'm allergic to the entire capsicum family, including bell peppers and paprika. It's one of the reasons we don't eat out or eat processed food much; paprika sneaks into everything. I have to ration my exposure to commercial mayo/salad dressing; I haven't found a brand yet that didn't have paprika. I make my own if I'm going to do something interesting with mayo.

thank ya, dear! actually, just made that soap as my own little kitchen soap thing. i'm trying to decide if i want to go in the direction of offering even more varieties or if i want to streamline things. hard to decide, i don't really want to stop making any of it.

Re: hello
You're welcome. I'm touched that I could make such a difference just by supplying a link.

I'd been using a Kermit icon (red and green) for the holidays when the NSA thing came up and I switched. I'm seeking attribution but haven't found it; however, I'm willing to share it.
