Handcrafted Pecan Pie Latte Soap

By Ann C Wooledge
on October 25, 2012

The Classic Kitchen Coffee Soap Plus!

We have quite a few customers who use our soap because it does clean nicely, but doesn't strip those precious oils from your skin. This new addition to our soaps is even better at that because it has real coffee grounds for additional deodorizing and grease cutting. And if you like the smell of pecan pie and coffee - you will love this one.

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 Ocean Mist Soap

By Ann C Wooledge
on September 27, 2012

I'm not good at describing fragrances, but this is how the supplier describes the original scent - "seductive, daring, rugged and robust muguet (lily-of-the-valley) but it also has the coolness, purity of the sea." And added to that it is "balanced with sandalwood and oak moss" and "deepened with spice notes of cloves and nutmeg." Whew - I don't know that I can smell all of that, but it is a very subtle, clean, fresh scent and I think it will be a keeper.

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.

Herbal Insect Deterrent Lotion - DEET-Free

By Ann C Wooledge
on April 26, 2010

Perfect emollient cream for sun-parched, thirsty skin and a perfect way to deter those pesky mosquitoes, flies, fleas, ticks and chiggers! This product contains our professionally researched and formulated essential oil blend in our regular cream that soothes skin as it repels mosquitoes, flies, fleas, ticks and chiggers. We've been told it works to repel sand fleas as well. Great combination!

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.

Handcrafted Secret Garden Soap

By Ann C Wooledge
on October 14, 2009

Unique blend of garden aromas

Oh - we have been back and forth on this one. We have tried out different blends, we tried using all essential oils, we tried using all fragrance oil, but our testers agreed that the blend of essential oils with just a hint of rose fragrance oil is what gives it that unique smell of a victorian garden. Rose essential oil is very expensive, although worth every penny, but not something we would be able to use in a soap. We needed that rose fragrance to round out the secret garden that we were looking for. We do use the rose essential oil in our Secret Garden body creams and other Secret Garden products - because it doesn't take very much and these are what we call "stay on" products. We've even given this particular soap extra attention to detail when we were trying to decide how to color it. I (Ann) decided that I wanted it to represent green for the ground and rose colored for the top representing flowers - call me crazy! So that's what we have and, of course, it comes out a little different with every batch. The green is naturally colored with parsley powder. The essential oils we've used include mandarin, geranium, ylang-ylang, clary sage and a touch of myrrh.
