Happy Mother’s Day!

Mothers don’t often take the time to care for themselves, so pampering items and the time to use them are a wonderful gift for mom.  Purchase your items, and we will beautifully package them for mom!  Our special gift boxes includes a bar of soap, a bottle of bath salts, a small hand cream or body balm, and a lip balm.  You can choose scents of each item.

We also have some new glycerin soap offerings this spring.

Berry Swirl SoapThis beautiful new soap has a luscious berry scent and each bar has a unique swirl. It creates a nice lather and is very moisturizing.

Marbled Lemon SoapThe subtle citrus scent of this new soap is refreshing in the shower.  The soap’s color is from Yellow Brazilian clay and charcoal.  Both the clay and charcoal absorb oils without drying your skin.  The beautiful unique swirl looks different in each bar.  Activated Charcoal and Brazilizn Clay are known for their purifying and cleansing properties.

Sea Sponge Glycerin Soap

Sea Sponge Glycerin SoapThis new soap eliminates the need for a scrunchy or washcloth!  The lovely blue color and fresh scent are wonderful in the shower.  The sponge is embedded in the soap, so it creates a creamy lather.  Simply wet the soap and sponge, then gently rub the sponge over wet skin until a lather forms.

Rose Clay & Poppy Seed SoapThis soap has a shea butter base.  The beautiful pink color comes from rose clay.   Rose Clay is known for purifying and cleansing properties.  It has an “average” amount of absorption, making it suitable for a wide variety of skin types.  It also has gentle oil absorption properties.  The Shea Butter in the soap base gives off a creamy lather, promoting moisture and softening.  Poppy seeds provide mild exfoliation.

Lavender Chamomile Sponge SoapThe clean and calming scent of this soap comes from a lavender and chamomile blend.  This soap is made with beef tallow instead of palm oil, and creates a hard and long lasting bar of soap.  The lavender and yellow swirled soap is embedded with a sea sponge, to create a creamy lather.  The soap, creates a lather without use of a scrunchy or washcloth.  Simply wet the soap and sponge, then gently rub the sponge over wet skin until a lather forms.

If mom loves gardening, this specialty soap may be perfect for her

Gardener’s Soap – mildly scrubby with layers of herbs, rose clay to absorb oils and grime, and moisturizing properties to keep frequently washed hands soft

And, if she loves extra pampering and exfoliation, the salt bar is decadent

Salt Spa Bar all natural soap bar loaded with Dead Sea and pink Himalayan salt.  A very hard bar that is low sudsing due to the high salt content but that is moderately scrubby and leaves skin soft and smooth

Valentines Day

FOR YOUR VALENTINE!

Looking for a thoughtful and indulgent gift for Your Valentine that is an alternative to the usual chocolate or roses?  Consider a gift basket filled with skin pampering items!  For the women in your life bath bombs, skin balms or lotions, natural lip balms, or soap loaded with natural glycerin and no chemicals make wonderful gifts.  For Valentine’s Day, we also have created several new bath items.

  • First, we are very excited about our “Floating Heart” Valentine soap offering. We embedded heart soap into our bar loaf, so each bar includes a cute little heart
  • A bag of 3 smaller, pink, heart-shaped bath bombs

     

  • Sweetie tarts bath bombs – a bag of 5 bath bombs, that look like a package of candies
  • Pampering bath bombs – a bag of 4 mint scented bath bombs loaded with sea salt and dried herbs and flowers
  • “Kiddie” size bath bombs with heart or flower shapes in a bag of 8 (Great for your little Valentines!)

                    

 

For the man your life, we also have some thoughtful gift ideas.  Men love our lip balms, and we offer many handmade soaps with scents pleasing to men.  Also, body balms are wonderfully soothing to skin after shaving (especially our chamomile and coconut balm), or to soothe skin dried by frequent hand washing.  Scrubby soaps like our Mechanic or Gardener soaps are great for gardeners, mechanics, hunters, or anyone who gets grimy hands.

  • Green gardeners soap has shredded loofah and walnut seeds to provide a very scrubby soap to clean especially grimy hands.  The scent is a pleasant sweetgrass scent
  • Gardeners cold process soap is a layered soap with lavender buds, calendula petals, coffee grounds, and a lavender scent leaves hands wonderfully soft and removes odors
  • Kitchen soap – This is a goats milk soap with coffee grounds to provide exfoliation and remove odors from the skin.  Works great in the kitchen but also works anywhere you need to remove grime and smells from your hands!  Pleasant coconut cream scent.
  • Mechanic soap – our most scrubby soap, with walnut shells and pumice to remove the most stubborn grime.  The oils are infused with calendula, for soothing irritated skin.  Scented with orange essential oil

 

We also have this soap without the scrubby texture. Specify when ordering which soap you prefer.     Net wt. 4 ozNet Wt. approximately 3.5 oz.     

Lastly, women and men love our sugar scrubs!  Sugar provides mild exfoliation, and quality oils provide emollient properties, leaving skin soft and smooth.  All scrubs have gentle soap in them, so you can clean and exfoliate at the same time.  You may even notice improvement in eczema and other drying conditions with repeated use, because of the healing oils used in the scrubs.  The scrubs come in multiple sizes, and also in decorative bail jars, which make beautiful gifts.
Try out our new web store!  We will lovingly package the perfect gift for your valentine!
