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.

Handmade Bamboo & Teak Soap

By Ann C Wooledge
on August 29, 2009

A favorite with men and women – very sophisticated clean fragrance, uplifting and light. Contains pure 75% dark cocoa which adds a powerhouse of antioxidants for healthier skin.  All of our soaps make great pet shampoo bars. We have one customer who grooms all of her male dogs with the Bamboo & Teak, and all of her female dogs with the Lilac & Lace – she says her customers love it too.

Handmade Almond & Oats Soap

By Ann C Wooledge
on August 29, 2009

If you like the fragrance of almonds and if you like “scrubby” soaps that are extremely beneficial for your skin as they clear off that dead layer of skin, you will love this soap. The beauty of handcrafted soap, especially with the high percentage of shea butter we add, is that the pH of your skin is balanced and not stripped as it is with commercial soaps. We’ve added organic oats to contribute to the scrubbiness, as well as organic ground almonds. The oats have their own contribution to these skin-healthy ingredients.

I have to tell you, we've tried very many almond fragrance oils but none of them gave me that same pleasant aroma that real almond extract does - you know the kind you use in cooking. I always add almond extract to most of the Christmas cookies I make because I love the taste. Well - we recently tested a new almond fragrance that is, if possible, stronger than almond extract.  And the even better news is that it came through in the cold process soap very nicely - good, strong, but not overwhelming, warm fragrance of almonds. This is definitely a keeper.

Blissful Babies Boo Boo Bottom Balm

By Ann C Wooledge
on August 29, 2009

This is one of our family’s favorites! It contains organic oils we infuse ourselves. Take a look here at what's new in our balms and the improvements we've made. 

We use a longer infusion process at low temperatures to assure you receive all the beneficial properties nature meant to be there. This blend is a beautiful mix of organic beeswax, plus the infused oils of calendula, chamomile, and helichrysum flowers – all well-known for their healing properties and gentleness for baby’s bottom. We then add a little True Lavender (high altitude - the best!) essential oil, Roman and German Chamomile essential oils, well known for their calming and anti-inflammatory benefits and certified organic Tea Tree - all of which are well-documented for their healing properties. There’s just enough beeswax to give healing protection and barrier plus this balm has soothing aromatherapy fragrance for those restless times or sleepy times. Diaper rash is often caused by yeast, specifically Candida, and our balm contains oils and essential oils that have been proven to fight against this heart-breaking invader. Ask me some time about my middle granddaughter's issues with diaper rash quite a few years ago. One jar will last a long time. We’ve used this on all of our grandchildrens' (well, the ones we've been blessed with in the past 10 years)  “hard-to-get-rid-of” diaper rash and the rash was gone overnight.  We have many customers who tell us the rash is gone by the next diaper change. Our granddaughters have been known to tells US to use it if they started to get sore!  Really!  And even at the age of five - our youngest granddaughter (long since potty trained) still tells me to bring the "boo-boo balm" when I come, and if I'm not coming when they run out to send it SOON. It helps soothe the itch of mosquito bites or "boo-boos" when she falls and scrapes her knees.
