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.

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.

Immune Enhancer Blend Essential Oil

By Ann C Wooledge
on August 31, 2009

 We reformulated this already effective blend in the summer of 2011 after reading more and more research about the immunostimulant properties of quite a few of the essential oils we already love and use in this and other blends. We will soon be adding links to some of the best articles for those who want to know the why's of this blend and the proof that the chemical constituents in this blend have been researched and shown to be very effective. The predominant chemical constituent in some of these oils have studies showing they activate white blood cell activity (basically your immune system's army), are able to inhibit airborne germs, and general immunostimulants. The perfect blend to use if you're going to be traveling, in a conference with lots of people stuck in the room for hours at a time, shopping on busy holidays, a childcare setting, a hospital hallway or nurses' station or just being exposed to potentially dangerous colds and flu's. We've detailed below the properties of each oil:

Petitgrain - contains a high percentage of Linalool and Linalyl acetate known to be immunostimulants

Dill Weed, certified organic - contains Carvone which has been studied and shown to increase white blood cell counts, and has anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and antifungal properties.

Clary Sage - also contains about 50 to 60% Linalyl acetate and is believed to be an effective immunostimulant

Oregano - contains Carvacrol, which is a well-known to have highly effective antibacterial, antiviral and antifungal properties, plus it is suggested that Carvacrol might have some of the strongest antioxidant properties.

Basil, ct linalool - this particular chemotype contains approximately 92% linalool, and as stated previously, is believed to be a very effective immunostimulant.

Tea Tree, certified organic - this oil is one of only a few essential oils used in aromatherapy that contains a fairly large percentage of Terpinen-4-ol and though well-known for its germ fighting abilities, it is believed to be an effective immunostimulant and plays a part in activating white blood cell activity (our front-line germ fighters)

Lemon, certified organic - contains d-limonene a powerful helper for our immune systems as studies have shown that it contributes to the activity of some of the most important aspects of our bodies ability to fight off infections, including increasing the total white blood cell count, antibody production and enhancing our natural killer cell activity. 

Cinnamon leaf - contains Eugenol which has been studied and found to be a very effective germ fighting constituent

Black Pepper, certified organic - contains Caryophyllene-b, shown in studies to have antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties

Clove leaf - also contains Eugenol and has the properties as stated above has been shown to be highly antibacterial, antiviral, antifungal and anti-inflammatory

Bergamot - contains Linalool and as stated previously has been shown to be an effective immunostimulant

Breathe Easy™ Blend Essential Oil

By Recipes for a Healthier You Appetite Control Snacks
on August 31, 2009

A lot of research and testing went into the formulating of this blend. We have quite a few customers with allergy and asthma issues. Asthma, in particular, requires a more gentle touch so that the automatic strong cough reflex is not elicited, which can happen with some cold and flu type blends. We believe and have found that this blend works effectively to calm the cough reflex and the tight feeling of inflamed and irritated lungs. I remember quite clearly my experience with this blend after running what seemed like forever in the Denver airport to catch a short connection. We ran from one gate to another and we were both out of shape. By the time we made it to our seats, the flight had been waiting on us (surprisingly enough) and the air was stagnant in the cabin of the plane. My chest hurt from the over-exertion and I truly could not take a deep breath. I was coughing uncontrollably and was seriously about to grab for the oxygen bag. I remembered that I had the Breathe Easy in my purse and grabbed for it, just opened the bottle and felt immediate relief. True story. If you are familiar with Young Living blends - this is much like their RC blend, but much more reasonably priced with unadulterated or undiluted oils.

Women's Silk Deodorant Body Powder

By Ann C Wooledge
on August 31, 2009

Our natural, talc-free powder is excellent for babies, men and women. It contains arrowroot and wheat-free tapioca starch to keep your skin dry and cool, baking soda to soothe inflammation, and zinc oxide to eliminate bacteria-causing odor. Available unscented, or scented with a combination of 100% essential oils. Low dust when applying; little waste! The same blend as our Lavender Powder except we also added therapeutic aromatherapy blends that will keep you feeling fresh throughout the day. These are great for your finest lingerie drawer, under your pillow or in your closet. Personally, my husband and I now use this powder as our ONLY deodorant and it seriously works great. We both work and play outdoors, keep our air conditioner off as much as possible and frankly we were surprised that it work so well as a personal deodorant, as well as being very affective for chafing.

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.

*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.

Handcrafted Pumpkin Spice Soap

By Ann C Wooledge
on August 29, 2009

Pumpkin and spice and everything nice!

We first made this soap in the fall, but have discovered that it is a wonderful all-year soap that is particularly beneficial to all skin types due to the Vitamin A content from the pumpkin flakes and powder, as well as the organic botanicals. It is a “scrubby” soap and makes this bar of soap an excellent exfoliating and antioxidant-rich soap. It looks pretty and smells just like Pumpkin Spice. We've combined pure essential oils with a hint of pumpkin fragrance and the combination is one that is a favorite with many of our customers.

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.
