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.
