Janet, just a thought about using oils from the grocery store. PLEASE don't even think of using peanut oil! More and more children are developing serious, even life threatening allergies to peanut products. Even the small amount in soap could send an allergic child like my grandson to the hospital. And just because they never reacted to it before doesn't mean they won't get a serious reaction the very next time. My grandson is one of those kids who has an immediate and serious reaction and cannot breathe. His parents know to check all the ingredients in the food they buy and to ask in every restaurant before they order, but I doubt if even they would think about peanut oil possibly being in soap.
