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.

Bergamot (Citrus bergamia)

By Ann C Wooledge
on August 31, 2009

Essential Oil of Bergamot Calabrian (Citrus bergamia) 

is a cold pressed oil and comes from the rind peel of the fruit of a citrus tree that bears a fruit that resembles a cross between an orange and a grapefruit (according to some sources.) Ours is from an area in Italy called Calabria and from what I've read Calabria is the only place in the world where the climate is just right for bergamot oranges to grow naturally. I only can repeat what I've read, but I haven't seen any contradictions concerning this. I looked it up because I was curious and found pictures of groves of bergamot orange trees that grow along the Calabrian coastline. Some say they are a cross between an orange and grapefruit, others say they are a natural cross between lime and a sour orange. I rather think this Calabrian that we offer seems more like a cross between an orange and lime. It is by far superior in it's sweet, tart, freshness, with a hint of floral.

Bergamot essential oil is not to be confused with the herb bergamot or bee balm (Monarda didyma). And just for the record, while searching for an appropriate picture for our blog on this oil, 99% of the pictures represented were the Monarda or bee balm flower. The aroma of the oil from this fruit is light and fruity, yet has a warm spicey floral note. In fact, it is said that the bergamot fruit was developed for its scent and has now been used in perfumery since the 18th century. I have received some samples that had a sharp, unpleasant note to them, but ours is warm and one of my favorites. Our latest supply is one of the best I've sampled yet. It reminds me of one of my favorite perfumes, an inexpensive one that I used to buy as a teenager called Muguet des Bois, or Lily of the Valley. Bergamot is NOT Lily of the Valley, but has the same qualities of lightness with a floral note. I particularly like the way Kristen Leigh Bell in her book, "Holistic Aromatherapy for Pets" describes bergamot. She says, "Bergamot is a citrus oil that combines the toning, strengthening and balancing effects of the monoterpene alcohols with the soothing, relaxing and uplifting qualities of the monoterpene hydrocarbons." You can see more about the monoterpenes in the detailed version of our description. Berganot essential oil has many benefits and wonderful properties, which is why we are so fond of it, but it also carries with it a significant caution – please see Benefits/Usage tab and for a detailed description of the benefits of this oil, see our Essential Oil Database or our blog article.


Naturally Nurturing™ Hand & Body Cream

By Ann C Wooledge
on August 29, 2009

One of our most popular items in our organic, paraben-free, phthalate-free, gluten free, cruelty free, vegan line of luxurious products at very affordable prices.  Google other organic creams, lotions and soaps and you will see just how reasonably priced our products are, plus they are truly skin-healthy and therefore contribute to the overall health of you and your family.  Mix and match with our organic botanical soaps.

Mother Nature knows best - that's what we believe and that's how we purchase our ingredients and formulate our recipes. Thicker than a "lotion",  this organic, paraben-free, non-greasy cream slides easily onto your skin with no “drag,” absorbs quickly, and leaves your skin feeling refreshed, renewed, hydrated and healthy.  Take a look at our ingredients and you will see why our cream is a step above. Our base is pure certified organic shea butter with 100% certified organic vegetable oils that we purchase from suppliers that we trust and know. We purchase unrefined, virgin oils that still retain all of nature's benefits that haven't been processed out of them. Our creams are naturally thick without artificial fillers and stiffeners you will see everywhere. Yes, it's less expensive to just make the product thick with chemicals, but we want healthy skin, so we use a large percentage of certified organic shea butter instead. We include certified organic skin-healthy herbs that we infuse at low temperatures for weeks and pure essential oils that are natural anti-free-radical ingredients known to protect your skin from aging and environmental toxins.  It is difficult to find a product with as many unprocessed ingredients as ours, as well as being organic. Choose unscented or one of our uniquely blended true aromatherapy choices using only 100% pure essential oils.

You asked – we listened. We are now offering all of our creams in the convenient sizes listed above, and also in bottles!

Naturally Nurturing™ Hand & Body Cream is available in these natural scents custom blended by a professional clinical aromatherapist.

*Phototoxic potential - "In several studies, application of some sources of bergamot oil directly to the skin was shown to have a concentration-dependent phototoxic effect of increasing redness after exposure to ultraviolet light (due to the chemical bergapten, and possibly also citropten, bergamottin, geranial, and neral). This is a property shared by many other citrus fruits." For more information see here from Wikipedia.

Organic Vitamin C Ester Serum

By Ann C Wooledge
on August 29, 2009

This serum has a very high concentration of Vitamin C esters – the only kind that your skin can actually absorb and use. The Vitamin C esters create a unique and powerful synergy with the other vitamins, such as E, and extracts included in this blend. Other vitamin C products you might see on the market contain water-soluble vitamin C (ascorbic acid), which is not able to penetrate the surface of the skin as it repels water-soluble substances. Water-soluble vitamin C when used as a supplement can be helpful indeed, but as a skin-care product you will need a lipid-soluble ester of Vitamin C (ascorbyl palmitate) in order to protect skin cells and skin tissue.
 

This serum, due to the variety of botanical extracts, helps protect your skin from environmental toxins that it “faces” on a daily basis.  This is a light serum and powerful but is able to provide a high level of antioxidants without stinging or causing inflammation to your skin. A vitamin C ester skin cream can both help repair and protect your skin from environmental damage which causes wrinkles and discoloration.

Skin Types:  Mature, dry, normal, sensitive and combination.

Organic Unrefined Tamanu Oil

By Ann C Wooledge
on August 29, 2009

Calophyllum inophyllum, also known as Foraha oil, is one of nature’s miracles. This oil has a beautiful, rich, nutty fragrance, that some have likened to that of butter pecan. It has a rich, thick, deep dark green color. Tamanu oil has a long history of research and anecdotal use. It is many things for many people. It soothes the skin, relieves irritation and inflammation, can help regenerate skin cells. Research has documented its strong anti-inflammatory action and we have used it successfully for eczema, rosacea and acne. My daughter, granddaughter and I started using it in place of tea tree oil on our faces and we now have many followers using this oil. For more detail and history of this amazing oil, please check our website’s page on ingredients. We are also offering this popular oil with the addition of Ravensara essential oil which has documented research for its ability to give relief to those suffering with shingles. If you do an internet search you will find that our price is reasonable and this is an undiluted, unrefined and certified organic product – many sell it diluted with cheaper oils – please don’t fall for that trick.

Organic Skin Renewal Intensive Facial Complex

By Ann C Wooledge
on August 29, 2009

 

Well, I have to be completely honest - this cream was formulated originally and continues to be - for me. I have very dry and sensitive skin (as well as rosacea) and absolutely nothing on the market worked. This works and I have tweaked it down through the years as I start to see tiny little wrinkles, so my research becomes a little more intensive as does the formula. It works - it really does. This is the most effective skin cream available in a natural formula or any formula for that matter!  We are using nature’s remedies and they are so much more powerful than all the nanochemicals and synthetics that you see hyped everywhere – nature knows about synergy!  That is what nature is all about and we’ve been blessed to capture this awesomeness in this intensive cell-renewal cream.  You absolutely WILL NOT FIND any other skin care products in my house - I use, and have used, only Wingsets' Facial Regimen for years now and I believe the health of my skin is probably my best testimonial.

We include a high percentage of Jasmine Green Tea, White Tea and Rooibos Tea as we have read studies concerning its beneficial cancer-preventing properties and healing properties.  If you look at our ingredients, you will see that we use certified organic green tea as an organic infusion and put it in again as a botanical extract, plus we’ve added Rooibos tea as well as other herbals for their skin calming and renewing properties. We’ve also added specifically targeted essential oils to combat dry and maturing skin.  The essential oils we use have been suggested to be ingredients that can have an obvious effect on the health of your skin and the appearance of wrinkles.  These are not “miracle ingredients” that you see advertised everywhere.  They are simply essential oils that have proven ability to penetrate deep into the layers of your skin and soothe damaged skin and possibly prevent further damage. They are from nature and because of that your body accepts them as natural.   As far back as biblical times Esther used these oils, as did Cleopatra and many other well-known beauties.  Our formula includes a high percentage of anti-inflammatory (that causes wrinkles and patchy, dry skin) and antioxidant ingredients.  Read the ingredients and their properties on our Product Information Page.

Organic Green Tea, Tea Tree & Lavender Cleanser

By Ann C Wooledge
on August 29, 2009


This organic green-tea and aloe vera based lotion-type cleanser is perfect for peeling away layers and deep cleaning without leaving a residue.

Green Tea, rooibos and white tea are well-researched and shown to be excellent anti-oxidants to counteract the free radicals we all acquire daily.  We then add our "skin blend" of pure essential oils to add to the powerful benefits of this cleanser. Look at our ingredients and you will note that green tea extract is at the top of our list of ingredients – meaning we’ve added a high percentage – not just a small amount as most of the products you will see on the shelves today.  There are interesting reports that Green Tea Extract can retard/prevent certain types of sun damage and also can help reinforce the skin’s lipid barrier by stimulating ceramide production, rooibos tea and white tea also have a stellar report card for skin health.

In an issue of Dr. Andrew Weil’s “Self-Healing” newsletter he has included an article entitled “Natural Skin Care Advice”, in which he agrees with us that healing comes from within first – good nutrition, good spiritual health – and then outward defenses.  In this article he recommends only a few things – one of which is green tea extracts.  To quote: “…and lab studies suggest green tea may protect against skin cancer.”  You will find certified organic green tea as our most often used ingredient and always at the top of our list of ingredients, not stuck it at the bottom – meaning it’s only there in small, useless amounts.

Organic Alpha Hydroxy Acid Cleanser

By Ann C Wooledge
on August 29, 2009


This is THE ONE you have to have in your skin care regimen.  The texture reminds me of Greek yogurt, except there is no odor or tartness to this cream, and it simply melts away all traces of make-up without drying out your skin.  Use every other day or every third day and it does all those wonderful things that alpha-hydroxy acids are supposed to do. It dissolves that old, dead layer of skin and leaves you with soft, clean, healthy skin.  We have found with experience that the small percentage of alpha hydroxy acids, like our 5-6%, when used every 2 to 3 days can be much less harsh on your skin and actually more effective. There is no issue of "recovery time" except that we recommend you avoid bright sunlight up to about an hour or two after using. Which is why I usually use this at night before going to bed or before a special evening occasion. Intuitively I personally cannot stress my skin to the degree that it is stressed with the high percentage AHA's which can only require my immune system to go into high gear and free radicals to run amok. This cleanser actually adds antioxidants to fight free radicals already rampant in our environment.

After using this cleanser your skin is now ready to receive that wonderful Skin Intensive Cream you’re about to put on it! Or if your skin isn't as dry as mine, you want to use the Every Day Facial Cream. We recommend our Green Tea Cleanser as your every day cleanser.

Sunburn Alert: This product contains natural fruit alpha hydroxy acids (AHA) that may increase your skin’s sensitivity to the sun and particularly the possibility of sunburn. Use a sunscreen and limit sun exposure while using this product.
