We're going to be fucking SWEATY doing all this farm work Very Happy

We need to be able to make our own soap. Anyone know how? I suggest growing some lavender or something and tucking it in with our clothes to help with smell.

Most soaps use animal fat (glycerides) to work.

Possibly we could call up the company Tom's of Maine and ask them for info to help our commune?

Yea, its not like we can produce our own animal fat...

That's an idea XD Maybe we can use a bit of "real"/"normal" soap, melt it and mix it with our own scented herbs and stuff like mint and lavender, and cut them into small rolls or something (just enough for one use) so there's just enough for one use? Or everyone gets one big bar?

Soap is made by cooking animal fat and lye.  There's still some people that make it the old fashioned way so if we buy it (which we probably will) we should try to buy from them.

I know someone who makes their own (VEGAN!) soap.  Thus I know it can be done, and with a little work we may be able to get the recipe.

Vegan soap is phenomenal, and just as effective as normal soap.
