I would like to make my mother and aunt a nice arrangement of body soap and powder but my mom is allergic to a lot of fragrances. Are there soap kits out there that is suppose to be safe for hyper allergic people?

Thanks.

for body soap assuming she is ONLY allergic to scents and NOT anything else-nuts,etc..

you can find some castile soap-Olive oil..

or just plain soap with NO fragrances..also goats milk soap is good too..

as for the powder do you mean talc powder?? like baby powder but for grown ups..

they have honey powder,or I have also seem arrowroot used as body powder..

When it comes to fragrances, there are three ways to approach it:

1) Speaking as a person who is allergic to most scented, commercial products, I have yet to find a scent I am allergic to that *I* can purchase. From what I'm told and have experienced, anything that you as a home soaper can purchase is a FAR cry from anything Dove, Dial or Caress are using. Also, you won't be using the gratuitous quantities of scent that they use. But, avoid floral scents as most of those drive my sinuses bonkers! Vanilla is always a safe one. Smiley

or

2) If you're really concerned, my advice is to avoid artificial fragrances and stick with essential oils. Lavender is the ever popular choice and while I'm sure some folks can be allergic to it,  I've yet to meet anyone who is.

and finally,

3) Stick with unscented. It's the sure-fire way to avoid scent allergies. I make a LOT of unscented products for myself.

Also, look into hypoallergenic oils such as rice bran. Smiley
