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.

Palmarosa (Cymbopogon martinii)

By Ann C Wooledge
on August 31, 2009

Palmarosa Essential Oil (Cymbopogon martinii var. motia)

Palmarosa became one of my favorite essential oils this past year, after a decade of being ignored by me. I discovered while one of my family members was struggling with a yeast overgrowth that this particular essential oil contains a large percentage of a chemical constituent called "geraniol". Now why is that important? Mainly because there are research studies showing that geraniol is quite effective at inhibiting yeast, and specifically Candida in quite a few research studies, one of which is indicated below (1). Candida is a type of yeast that most often causes diaper rash, thrush, yeast overgrowth and other unpleasant things - yep, that one too.  It also has a very nice fragrance which has been likened to that of rose. I don't quite smell that in the samples I've tested, but it does blend well with other essential oils and is widely used in the fragrance industry. It reminds me of a combination of rose and geranium with maybe a little green note to it. I like it, but like it best when blended with other essential oils.

Palmarosa is a grass and a relative of the aromatic and culinary lemongrass. The leaves are distilled for their essential oil.

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.

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 Oatmeal, Honey & Buckwheat Soap

By Ann C Wooledge
on August 29, 2009

An excellent “scrubby soap” to exfoliate all skin types. We’ve used certified organic oat bran, almonds, honey and buckwheat – all of which are very beneficial for the skin. Light scent of honey and oatmeal.

Handcrafted Oakmoss & Olive Leaf Soap

By Ann C Wooledge
on August 29, 2009

Awesome fragrance that leaves a clean, fresh and not over-powering drift of fragrance after using. Oakmoss is a wonderful clean fragrance for both women or men, but the men particularly love it. We’ve added olive leaf powder to give it the beautiful green color and to add to its beneficial properties. Olive leaf powder is believed to have antibacterial properties and studies suggest that it can increase circulation and healing of the skin.

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.

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.
