What natural soap do you use?

We tried Goat Milk Stuff, but it leaves this kind of waxy feeling and we just don't like it.

So what do you use?

I use Castillo soap. We like the peppermint one because it leaves your skin feeling clean and tingly

Mostly goatsmilk that I've made.

For my face, just plain ol honey. It's amazing! I've used it all over in the past too. It totally shrinks your pores & gets rid of acne too!

I've wondered about this. Does it remove makeup? (I assume not.) Is it tough to rinse off? Do you just smear it all over your face? I'm sorry for the 20 questions but I'm intrigued! And I'm an oil cleansing method dropout.

We use Dr Bronners for hand soap but Dial for body. I know the Dial is awful bu we have a ton we're working through.

I just started using honey a few times a week and it is actually really easy to rinse off, just make sure your hair is tied back securely! In the morning I rub it on before I get in the shower and then rinse in there. I don't know about removing makeup since I don't usually wear any.

ETA: I made it sound like it's easy to rinse if you're in the shower but it's just as easy with a washcloth at the sink.

We get tons of ants here so I don't want to add an attraction. How do you contain and apply? I am picturing a squeeze bear and a face sponge at the moment
