Where are these items?

I love this site. I needed so much help on taking care of my daughter's skin and cradle cap I am so glad that I found some place that can give good clean advice.

Where can I find Olive Oil shampoo? My daughter and husband suffers from dandruff, bad. In addition, my daughter has eczema bad and I have tried all that I could think of. Now I am just giving her, once a week, homemade honey and oatmeal wash(its a facial but I use it on her whole body) and it does really work!

Dandruff & Olive Oil Shampoo
by: Grandma

Hello G.

Thank you so much for sharing a picture of your beautiful daughter. It makes me want to send tiny cyber kisses to plant all over those chubby little cheeks. :)

What a great tip for my visitors that are suffering from eczema problems, honey and oatmeal scrub is a wonderful home remedy. I can see it works by looking at your daughters pretty skin. You must be so proud to have found something that has absolutely no chemicals or side effects.

Olive oil shampoo is very difficult to find as far as buying it in drugstores or supermarkets, you may be able to locate some or something similar in a health food store. It is usually homemade and most of the time it's made by the Amish or Menninite (as far as I know). I buy mine from a Menninite family and they only make it a couple of times a year. I do plan on selling it once they get a batch made for me. I'm planning on selling it to my newsletter subscribers, simply because I can't keep up with the supply and demand. If you are interested in trying the Olive Oil Shampoo or Olive Oil and Goat Milk Bath Soap I talk about on my website take a few minutes and sign up for my newsletter.

If your daughter and husband are suffering from dry dandruff problems (if their skelp is dry and flaky) then you could try warm olive oil treatments. Just warm a small amount of olive oil in the microwave and massage it into the skelp and hair, cover with a warm moint towel for about 20 to 40 minutes then shampoo with a mild shampoo, like baby shampoo. Do this at least once a week for awhile.

If they are suffering from a oily dandruff problem (if their hair is oily and the dandruff kind of sticks) you can dilute some Apple Cider Vinegar with warm water and use it as a rinse after shampooing. You will be amazed at how much the vinegar will make their hair managable and bring out the highlights. (the smell does evaporate).:)

Thank you for trusting in Grandma's Wisdom it always makes my day when someone says they are happy to find my website.
