I have used pretty much every scent and product Routine offers from face and body oils to the deodorant, including the shampoo and conditioner. I love the Dirty Hipster, it has patchouli which I am usually not a fan, but it is subtle and I smell more hints of chocolate and mint. They use organic flavours for scents, nothing artificial. Smell good and stay fresh. The only product that has actually worked.
I started making soap for Emulsion Blocks to emuslify lanolin to boost the natural water proofing and anti-bacterial properties of wool. In general any soap can be used, however having the blocks in a convenient size as well as chemically balanced for the easiest possible emulsion was our goal.
Side effect, I fell in love with soap making hard. I dabbled with using lanolin in the blend and literally can’t use any other soap now.
