Why Handcrafted Botanical Soaps?

First, they are kinder and gentler to your skin as they clean. Only the highest grade vegetable oils such as avocado, jojoba, coconut oils, palm christi (vegetable castor), shea butter, cocoa butter, and more are used for their special emollient properties. You won’t find any artificial colorings or Sodium Laurel Sulfate in our soaps. Only lots of natural glycerin, a humectant that helps attract moisture to the skin. Our essential oils, herbs, ground grains and nuts are blended to make your bathing experience pleasurable but, more importantly, nurturing for healthy, glowing skin.

Soap_origphoto.jpgOur botanical soaps weigh between 4-4.5 oz. Since they are cut by hand
they are not entirely even – that’s the nature of handcrafted soap.

Care of your Handcrafted Botanical Soaps:
Due to the fact that handcrafted soaps are not commercially milled (for hardness) they are softer and need to be allowed to breathe. Placing them to dry on a draining soap deck is the best way to extend the life of your soap.

Breakaway from the ordinary –
Make a Splash!

Essential Oil of the Month

(Citrus bergamia)

Bergamot orange is known for it’s sweet
citrusy aroma.  The essential oil is expressed from the peel of this fruit. 
It is uplifting, refreshing, while promoting
a sense of calm and stability.  There is N
atural Bergamot with bergaptenes and Bergamot FCF or BF which is further
rectified to remove the bergaptenes.  Due to its analgesic properties it is found in  many skin care products.
When using natural Bergamot  essential oil that is not
ergaptene-free, sunlight and tanning lights should be avoided as they can cause extreme skin sensitivity (photo-sensitizer). Beneficial for anxiety, anger, frustration, stress related issues and depression.
