Soaping with Allergies: Nuts, Gluten & More

One of the benefits of making your own bath and body products is having complete control the ingredients you put in them.  If you have sensitive or an allergy to particular ingredients, creating your products from scratch allows your to fully customize your products to your personal preferences. If you or someone you know suffers from severe allergies to products such as nuts or gluten, creating your own products can be very appealing.   Would you believe that tree nut allergies are one of the most common allergens in both adults and children?  Is is.  And according to The Soap Queen, tree includes (but are not limited to) walnuts, almonds, hazel nuts, cashews, pistachios and Brazilian nuts.  Peanuts are also a common nut allergy event though they are technically considered a legume. People who are allergic to tree nuts are more likely to be allergic to other types of nuts and should avoid all of them.  If you would like more information, you can read the recent post by The Soap Queen called Soaping with Allergies:  Nuts, Gluten & More.
