Why Buttermilk Soap?

Oh Chamomile Honey Bee Buttermilk Soap was the first soap I made. I made this soap because of a very random breakout I experienced with psoriasis. My skin started with a few red patches and became itchy, inflamed, and red as a fire truck. I did not know what to do but I knew I did not want to take medication.

My research led me to make this wonderful buttermilk soap recipe.

Benefits of Buttermilk for skin:

  • It is full of lactic acid which removes dead skin and fades dark spots
  • Aids in cleans the skin
  • Is a natural moisturizer and nourishment for skin
  • Aids in aging skin
