People with sensitive skin do not do well with borax.  That's why for sensitive skin it's so important to make a butter, not a cream.

Didn't have time to read all the replies.  I make body butter for people with very dry skin and since many of my clients have eczema, I always tailor anything I'm making to them.  I don't make creams requiring water, preservatives or emulsifiers, butters are what our ancestors made.  The ingredients are shea, sunflower oil, castor oil, sunflower lecithin (both castor and lecithin act as humectants and you would love the feel of it), coconut oil, and almond oil etc.  

I have found that for me, and some of my customers with very sensitive skin, aloe irritates us - which many find odd.  I ran out of body butters, but will be putting them back on etsy for Christmas.  MissouriHerbs.com

If you want electrolytes, infuse the vinegar for 6 weeks with an herb that has electrolytes.  Like Nettles for example.  Or infuse the vinegar with a plant from the mint family.  Vinegar extracts minerals / electrolytes and holds in suspension.  

Using vinegar "empty" is a waste of good vinegar. We infuse our vinegar with rose petals to also add a refrigerant to our switchel for the summer.  As it gets cooler, we use vinegar that has been infused with warming herbs.

I can't say too much here. But I"m putting out feelers. A group I'm in is looking for a hard working person or couple that have permaculture skills to take over an established permaculture farm near Lawrence,KS. I believe they are wanting to put it in a trust and just looking for someone that can keep the work going and care and love for the house the way they did. I'm getting more details now. Please just message me!!

I just posted the link here. I thought that's what you wanted, sorry. when I posted the picture in the post I used the IMG tag by using the Img button. It didn't work there. Ugh. I guess I'll try again.



No, you are good. My not being clear, not you for sure.

Where did you try and put the picture here on Permies?



Thank you for your patience! I got it. Noticed no .jpg at the end of the img thing.

I have pictures in a photo bucket account. I resized them so that they are small. I click IMG, insert the image link and nothing. It works on other forums but not here. What am I missing?
I'm looking for established writers that provide their own photos and want to produce articles for Heirloom Gardener Magazine. Looking for articles on permaculture, heirloom gardening, soil health, interesting veggies etc. If you are interested, please contact me and I'll give you more info. Thanks. heirloomgardener@rareseeds.com
