Organic Fresh Lemon Zest Soap - Handcrafted

Our generous sized bars will last a long time and give you much luxury. They will last longer, however, if you place them in a drainage dish that allows for them to dry out between use.

Organic Pink Grapefruit and Tangerine Shea Butter Soap

By Ann C Wooledge
on October 05, 2012

Artisan crafted - handmade in small batches. These soaps are naturally very hard with lots of suds, and can last for a very long time if allowed to drain in a soap dish that doesn't collect water. Use often and you will see a difference in the health of your skin.

Palmarosa (Cymbopogon martinii)

By Ann C Wooledge
on June 01, 2012

Palmarosa (Cymbopogon martinii) Essential oil.  

We recommend that all essential oils be used diluted and with the proper education provided to you by your health care provider or certified aromatherapist. There are many places you can purchase essential oils, but we recommend that you consult with an educated provider or purchase blends from educated providers. Essential oils are powerful medicines and when used incorrectly can cause harm. Please read our Disclaimer before using our products.

Although some websites will say that this oil is a skin irritant and to avoid use in pregnancy. Our research did not find this to be an issue, in fact, one of our favorite aromatherapy textbooks, Aromatherapy for Health Professionals, by Shirley and Len price refers to Palmarosa as being a "uterotonic oil which facilitates delivery" and they provide what they call the "Boudoir" blend as follows:

Thyme essential oil - Thymus vulgaris ct (chemotype) geraniol - 3 ml (there are 5 ml's to a teaspoon)

Palmarosa essential oil - Cymbopogon martini - 3 ml

Clove (it doesn't say leaf or bud, but they are much the same) - Syzygium aromaticum: 0.5 ml

Vegetable carrier oil: 13.5 ml

Instructions: "6 to 8 drops massaged over the belly several times a day to stimulate labour if the mother is post-term. Or the same quantity over the lower back every half hour during labour itself."

Our favorite book on essential oil safety is well...Essential Oil Safety by Robert Tisserand and Tony Balacs. They have comments concerning the constituent geraniol and refers to oral dosing, which we do not recommend regardless of the oil unless under the advice and guidance from an aromatherapy professional who has demonstrated hours of education and expertise. They also state that geraniol may have the potential to lower blood pressure. They consider Cymbopogon martinii to not be a skin irritant nor sensitizer, not phototoxic with no cautions or warnings noted.

Once I finalize the blend for the Candida that we used for the yeast overgrowth, I'll put it up on the website for sale with all of the ingredients declared. Plus, we will be adding Palmarosa to our Bugz Off essential oil blend so it can be used for dust mites and most likely for bed bugs - but I'm still finishing up the research and testing on that one.

Keep ALL essential oils out of reach of children or pets, dilute prior to use. Use and store in the amber dropper safety caps provided. Keep out of sunlight or high temperatures. Do not take orally without proper supervision by a healthcare provider and/or certified aromatherapist.

Cassia (Cinnamomum cassia) Essential Oil

By Ann C Wooledge
on February 01, 2012

Cassia (Cinnamomum cassia) essential oil 

Due to its high level of cinnamic aldehyde please use caution when using this oil. It has historically been used in the flavoring industry and studies that have shown its very beneficial properties, as detailed above, have been with oral use. This oil makes a very good antiseptic mixed with water or in a diffuser. It is, however, one of the strongest skin irritants and skin sensitizers in the field of aromatherapy. Previously most aromatherapists, including myself, would tell you to never, ever use this oil topically. However, after listening to a webinar by Robert Tisserand, who wrote the classic textbook on aromatherapy safety, said that it could possibly be used because of how highly antibacterial it was but at no greater than 0.5% usage. His book has stated that it is "not useful for aromatherapy", but he did change his view point during this webinar. I would say do not use it without the guidance of a qualified, trained clinical aromatherapist. Having seen so many horrible wounds and so many cases of MRSA during my nursing career, I have to be excited about the possibilities of this particular essential oil and hope to do some studies in the near future. For what it's worth - and I think it's worth a lot - China has been using this essential oil medicinally for several thousands of years. They are so far ahead of us where healthcare is concerned.

Also please note: If used concurrently with any other anti-platelet and/or anti-coagulant medications this essential may increase the risk of bleeding. 

Blissful Babies Calendula & Chamomile Soap

By Ann C Wooledge
on January 13, 2012

These generous sized hard bars will last a long time - and will last even longer if you place them in a dish that will allow the water to drain off the soap. We sell a lot of these soaps and we have a lot of repeat customers because the soap really does make a difference. Our "baby" had eczema from birth - if only I had had a choice like this at that time. Now you do!

Oregano essential oil (Origanum vulgare)

By Ann C Wooledge
on October 23, 2011

Oregano essential oil (Origanum vulgare)

Undiluted, pure aromatherapy grade. Do not use internally without first consulting with a qualified healthcare professional and this oil should be diluted with carrier oil prior to use. This particular essential oil is often sold in health food stores diluted with other ingredients. The oil we offer here is not diluted and is not adulterated with other ingredients. Due to its high content of the chemical constitutent Carvacrol, this oil will inhibit platelet aggregation, which means it decreases the bloods natural ability to clot. So do not use prior to surgery and or immediately following surgery. And do not use if you are currently on any other blood thinners such as aspirin, Plavix or Coumadin. 

HIGHLY IRRITATING TO THE SKIN AND MUCOUS MEMBRANES. I have on occasion, accidentally, touched the side of the bottle when putting it away and there may have been a drop on the outside of the bottle. I then put my hand to my mouth and it hurt - a lot! I had to immediately wash my entire face and hands. I should and usually do remember to whip the outside of the bottles and wash my hands thoroughly after pouring any oils - but especially this oil. KEEP OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN - PLEASE!!

Please see our disclaimer. You will find additional in-depth information in our Essential Oil Database along with research information (under construction)

Herbal Pets Insect Deterrent Spray - DEET-Free

By Ann C Wooledge
on April 26, 2010

You will enjoy the light lemon scent, but please do not spray directly into or close to your animal's face, eyes or nose. Dogs and horses both have long noses, which means they have more olfactory bulbs than we do and are sensitive to aromatic molecules - such as essential oils. I spray our two dogs (both 50+ pounds) liberally throughout their body area and around their necks - especially under their collar. Fleas usually come up to the collar on their way to the eyes to drink. I spray my hand and pat down the facial and ear area of the dogs. Abby, the Golden Retriever, will go rub her nose in the grass a minute but Brit, the Brittany Spaniel, seems to enjoy the spray down. I think he knows it keeps the fleas and flies off of him. I think they both just enjoy the rubbing that goes with it. On small dogs, do a skin test first by spraying a small amount on the belly where there is less hair and leave overnight. If there is no adverse reaction such as a rash or red area, then apply by spraying your own hand and patting down the dog. The bottle will provide an easy-to-use spray that can be applied easily over the entire body.This product also provides a good deodorizing scent to your pets.

DO NOT USE ON CATS!! Cats cannot metabolize essential oils and you may not see the damage, but the possibility of organ damage is high - according to most references I've read.

Handcrafted Secret Garden Soap

By Ann C Wooledge
on October 14, 2009

Handmade, handcut, shea butter soap

I love this soap. I love the way it looks and I love the way it smells and I love how my skin looks, feels and smells after I use it. I also love the way my bathroom smells after I use this soap or the Secret Garden bath salts. It is not too flowery but retains that blend of summer evening fragrances that float in the air. We use all essential oils in the creams and bath products, so you get additional inherent benefits from the essential oils.
