Organic Fresh Lemon Zest Soap

By Ann C Wooledge
on October 18, 2012

Handcrafted REAL organic soap

Handcrafted using fresh organic lemon zest and fresh organic cold-pressed lemon (Citrus limonum) essential oil. Lemon essential oil has well-researched immune-enhancing properties and the organic fresh lemon zest adds gentle exfoliating properties. Made the old-fashioned way that uses only natural and organic ingredients that naturally retains glycerin. Don't be fooled by those triple-milled, high dollar soaps that are a mix of synthetic ingredients. Take time to read your labels - your skin will thank you. We use ONLY certified organic shea butter, coconut oil and olive oil - all very skin healthy, nurturing, hydrating. We use only organic botanicals rather than chemical dyes, which also add beneficial antioxidant properties to each and every bar.

Organic Herbal Oat Hair Conditioner - 4 oz

By Ann C Wooledge
on July 09, 2012

Really our NEWEST products, also after years of experimenting and testing. With over 90% organic content and a ph (perfect for healthy shining hair) of 3.5 to 4. It is as all of our products, paraben-free, phthalate-free, petrochemical-free and doesn't leave my hair loaded down and heavy but yet not fly-away. Believe me when I say I'm very picky about my shampoo and conditioner and especially as a combination. It is the perfect compliment to our herbal shampoo and also makes a perfect synergy if using them together.  Pictures coming soon, but wanted to get it at least with a link in order to announce its arrival. It contains all of those herbal ingredients that we use in all of our products - organic calendula, chamomile, aloe vera and many others. Take a look at our new herbal shampoo also - FULL of awesome ingredients for those of us who really want a natural and organic product without the ubiquitous pesticides and hormones found in even certified organic products - go figure.

Cassia (Cinnamomum cassia) Essential Oil

By Ann C Wooledge
on February 01, 2012

Truly this oil has been a wonderful surprise for me this past year. I simply discounted it for many many years because of its reputation as a strong skin irritant. It wasn't until I started digging more into the chemical makeup of oils and their individual properties did I realize how very beneficial this particular oil is. It has a much sweeter fragrance than cinnamon leaf or bark and has a high level of the chemical constituent mentioned above. Cinnamon Bark also has a high level of this constituent, but it is both more expensive and doesn't smell as good. The oil itself is somewhat dark and viscous. The common uses are about the same as the cinnamon spice, which has been gaining much popularity the past few years and for very good reasons. The reason I love this oil is that it has the sweet taste and smell that we are all familiar with - such as cinnamon chewing gum. Traditionally, this dried herb was used as a spice and the essential oil as a flavoring agent.  In traditional medicine it has been used for digestive complaints. Used much the same way as Cinnamon. We've added it to our cold & flu blends and cinnamon orange spice blends. Makes a very good room cleaner and antiseptic - see our air freshener. Perfect for day care, schools, locker rooms, hospitals, keyboards - all those places bacteria accumulate and stay so easily.

Skin-soothing organic aloe vera and witch hazel base that doesn't leave a sticky, uncomfortable residue as other insect repellents do.

This blend has been used all over the world and has been proven effective. It was used by the Bell South workers after Katrina as they restored telephone service to the area months following the hurricane.

Herbal Pets Insect Deterrent Spray - DEET-Free

By Ann C Wooledge
on April 26, 2010

This product was, as are all of our products, formulated for practical applications. We had already blended and used our Deet-free Herbal Insect Repellent in a personal-care spray and cream, but realized we were using it on our dogs as much as ourselves. It truly became evident one summer when the flies literally were causing open areas on Abby's nose that I needed to do a little more research. It kept the fleas and ticks off of her, but not the flies. I did some more research on flies and essential oils and tweaked our original formula - it worked! I can say that for the past 10 years the flies haven't bothered our dogs. The pet insect repellent blend is available in either a distilled-water based or organic aloe vera base for those pets who might have sensitive skin or skin issues. Our house backs up to a wooded area off the city bike trail and ticks, flies, fleas, chiggers and mosquitoes are frequent visitors in our neck of the woods - but not on us or our dogs. We knew we wanted a natural, Deet-free, choice for our dogs as well as us, and after reading the chemical-laden ingredients on most of the pet collars on the market - knew we had made the right choice.

Palmarosa (Cymbopogon martinii)

By Ann C Wooledge
on August 31, 2009

Palmarosa Essential Oil (Cymbopogon martinii var. motia)

Palmarosa became one of my favorite essential oils this past year, after a decade of being ignored by me. I discovered while one of my family members was struggling with a yeast overgrowth that this particular essential oil contains a large percentage of a chemical constituent called "geraniol". Now why is that important? Mainly because there are research studies showing that geraniol is quite effective at inhibiting yeast, and specifically Candida in quite a few research studies, one of which is indicated below (1). Candida is a type of yeast that most often causes diaper rash, thrush, yeast overgrowth and other unpleasant things - yep, that one too.  It also has a very nice fragrance which has been likened to that of rose. I don't quite smell that in the samples I've tested, but it does blend well with other essential oils and is widely used in the fragrance industry. It reminds me of a combination of rose and geranium with maybe a little green note to it. I like it, but like it best when blended with other essential oils.

Palmarosa is a grass and a relative of the aromatic and culinary lemongrass. The leaves are distilled for their essential oil.
