New  Creations

New!  Rose Lipped Maidens Lip Butter Balm.  I have been working on a lip product for months. It should be so simple but I am perfectionist and I’ve been dreaming of something you can put on your lips that is not as hard and waxy and utilitarian as your typical lip balm, but I also don’t want a goopy lip lotion.  Rose Lipped Maidens is a fusion of a lip balm and a lip butter. It contains creamy, rich mango butter and natural, locally sourced beeswax and it’s whipped to a firm yet creamy texture. It also contains alkanet infused organic sunflower oil, a little shimmery mica, super moisturizing castor oil, anti-aging expeller pressed virgin rosehip seed oil, argan oil, vitamin E  and a lovely blend of rose absolut, peppermint and tangerine essential oils.   Special introductory pricing: $6

Limited Edition: Dan’s Scrubbing Bubbles  I get a lot of requests for scratchy bars of soap.  I called it Dan’s Scrubbing Bubbles because my Uncle Dan is one of my favorite soap loving customers and in his world there is no such thing as too scratchy.  This bar aims to be scratchy while still being visually appealing, moisturizing and delicious smelling.  The scatchiness comes from ground pumice, paprika, poppy seeds and coffee and the it’s scented with Lemongrass and Lavender Essential Oils.  Scratch on!

On the Curing Rack

You can buy them now if you like.  They have been curing for a couple of weeks and will be gentle on your skin but I recommend storing them on a shelf exposed to air until late March.  The nice, long cure time will result in a harder, longer lasting bar of soap.

Bountiful Harvest  Organic pumpkin puree  is so creamy and good for your skin. Mixed with Clove and Sweet Orange essential oils makes this a cozy Autumn or Winter themed soap. The ground coffee adds visual appeal but also lends a bit of scrubbiness to this bar.

 Coconut Lemongrass  Inspired by the scents and flavors of Thai food, the bottom layer is colored with yellow clay and bespeckled with organic Calendula. The top layer is creamy white with real coconut milk and meringue-like peaks and covered with flaked coconut. This soap smells is for all the Lemongrass lovers out there and is an intoxicating combination of 100% pure Lemongrass Essential Oil and Coconut fragrance oil.
