on January 15, 2013

Herbal Shampoo & Shower Gel with over 70% organic ingredients and organic aloe vera.

One of our newest products after years of experimenting and testing. We LOVE this sulfate-free, paraben-free, phthalate-free, petrochemical-free, very nice sudsing shampoo. Made with over 70% certified organic ingredients, it does definitely add highlights and health to every head that it comes into contact with. Pictures coming soon, but wanted to get it at least with a link in order to announce its arrival. This dual purpose shampoo and shower gel 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 the conditioner 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.

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 Pink Grapefruit and Tangerine Shea Butter Soap

By Ann C Wooledge
on October 05, 2012

Handmade soap using pure organic essential oils

As are all of our soaps, this one is made in small fresh batches - especially important when working with citrus essential oils. We use only  fresh cold-pressed and organic citrus essential oils because although they are quite powerful in many ways with a long list of health benefits - see our blog - they are also prone to oxidation, which renders them not only NOT beneficial but potentially harmful. You will enjoy the refreshing, uplifting and immune-enhancing properties of this particular bar of soap.

  • Handcrafted with care in small batches in Lincoln, NE

Organic Arnica Infused Herbal Oil

By Ann C Wooledge
on September 20, 2012

Infused Arnica montana herbal oil

This is THE oil to turn to for inflammed arthritic joints, bones, bruises, contusions or just sore muscles. We've written more about this oil, its constituents and some research attributing these properties to this infused/macerated oil. This is not an essential oil - this is a fixed carrier oil. The Arnica montana flowers are certified organic and we've infused them for at least 3 weeks at low steady temperatures to insure that these proven benefits are retained. See our blog here for more information. 

We use this oil along with the organic infused oils of calendula, chamomile, helichyrsum and St. John's Wort in our Spicey Muscle Oil (along with a very well-researched and effective blend of warming essential oils.

Blissful Babies Calendula & Chamomile Soap

By Ann C Wooledge
on January 13, 2012

Your pediatrician will often tell you NOT to use any "soap" on your baby's tender skin. This is because they don't know about handmade soap made the old-fashioned way without chemicals or other harmful ingredients. We go a step further and add only certified organic oils and certified organic shea butter. A LOT of shea butter as a matter of fact and you will find very few (if any) soapmakers who use as much shea butter or certified organic ingredients. This results in a very healthy choice that will protect and hydrate your baby's skin without disturbing the pH balance that is there to protect this new skin.

By Ann C Wooledge
on April 26, 2010

REPELS flies, fleas, mosquitoes, chiggers and spiders! Proven effective on mosquitoes even in Africa and Northern Minnesota. NATURAL & ORGANIC INGREDIENTS. Also works to keep bugs off your dog! NOT FOR USE ON CATS.

Skin-soothing organic aloe vera and witch hazel base that doesn't leave a sticky, uncomfortable residue as other insect repellents do. The natural essential oils have been researched and proven to be effective by organic farmers and aromatherapy professionals who prefer a natural choice that is DEET-free. 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.

Naturally Nurturing™ Nurses’ Hand Cream

By Ann C Wooledge
on January 03, 2010

Herbal Balm – perfect for nurses!

What's new about our all purpose herbal balm? Well, we've added certified organic unrefined (high oleic) Avocado oil, a particularly nurturing oil for the skin. We are now using certified organic food grade Avocado oil, unrefined, not the cosmetic grade that other cosmetic companies might use - and that actually we used to use. Why did we change? Because the unrefined retains all of those natural vitamins A, B1, B2, D and E. It also has sterols, lecithin and other essential fatty acids that are lost in the refining process. These are properties we need to impact the health of our skin. Is this certified organic, unrefined oil more expensive? Yes, it certainly is, but for now we can absorb the cost and keep the price of this very effective healing balm the same as we have for probably five years. Check out our ingredients' information data base to find out just exactly what that means - if you're interested. This oil has a long history of being particularly helpful to those with skin problems such as eczema, psoriasis, rosacea - or just dry, thirsty skin! When we opened the container of the new unrefined avocado oil it was amazing and we knew it was worth the extra cost - very dark, rich green and thick. We have in the past used cosmetic grade which was colorless, odorless and thin and, frankly, we just weren't satisfied with that. We think you'll notice the difference. We certainly did.

This all-purpose balm also includes certified organic Chamomile, Calendula and Helichrysum flowers infused in certified organic high oleic sunflower oil. We’ve began infusing our own oils several years ago as we became concerned at what temperature our suppliers may be infusing their oils. I have no idea - they may or might not be taking the extra time and effort to keep the temperatures low and for longer periods of time to enhance and protect nature's beneficial properties that are lost with high temperatures and extra refining. So - we do it ourselves - now we know it's done like we want it done. By doing this we know that the oil has been infused at the most effective process possible to extract and retain as much of the beneficial properties as we can - the energy of the plants. We go above and beyond the norm and infuse the oil longer and at lower temperatures.

Calendula is an important folk medicine plant, often used for treating inflamed tissue. During the Civil War, doctors used calendula leaves to treat open wounds on the battlefield. Calendula flower is among the most soothing of herbs for salves. Herbalist Aviva Romm, author of Natural Healing for Babies and Children (Crossing Press, 1996), uses it along with chickweed (Stellaria media), plantain (Plantago spp.), comfrey (Symphytum officinale) and chamomile (Matricaria recutita) to soothe children’s skin. There is a study of calendula for wounds that showed it to noticeably stimulate physiological regeneration and skin healing. We've taken out the comfrey leaf and root botanicals simply because of some controversy and frankly we're just not sure if it's justified or not - so we just figure we have enough good stuff in this jar that it doesn't need "iffy" stuff. I personally love comfrey and will continue to use it, but I understand and love ingredient readers who do their research - that's why we are a business and that's why we started making our own products.
