    SaraFish's Note:

    In ancient times, when clean water was scarce, olive oil was used to cleanse the skin. This is great for those with dry skin. From Janice Cox's book, Natural Beauty at Home.

      This leaves your hands VERY soft and smooth! So easy to put together too. I used liquid castile soap and added about an extra teaspoon for a little lather.

      I have used something very similar to this is truly excellent for the sensitive skin. Olive oil can go rancid over a year of opening, so smell first before you use this. I put this in an lovely pump container that sits on my sink. I also have a pump at the kitchen sink as my hands are in water all the time....this helps re-hydrate them and leave them soft and smooth! Lovely product!!

      Have been using this about a year,it is just wonderful.I used to by expensive cleansing creams...but no more.. they are not this good.I know, my face has less wrinkles,because of this lotion. I found that mixing it with my"Braun" works very well, it does not separate.and I put it in a pump bottle. I thank you so much...Sarafish
