About our soaps, balms, and oils:
We make all of our products from wholesome base ingredients that are sustainable (we do not use palm oil). We only use nourishing, naturally emollient plant oils, (olive, coconut, almond, soy, castor, jojoba) shea butter, cocoa butter, beeswax, pure essential oils & an abundance of organic herbs we raise & process ourselves. Our goal is preserving the benefits of the herbs into products for skin care!
We use the cold~process method of making soap, so we can add herbs or our herbal infused oils at each step of the process. Each batch of soap is "superfatted", and contains naturally occurring glycerin, meaning it is a mild soap. Each batch is cured for at least 12 weeks before it is labelled and ready for sale~this ensures a harder bar of soap and good lather. The soaps are minimally wrapped with paper so they can continue to cure, and we are not adding more toxic plastic to the environment. We never use artificial dye, oxides, micas (they contain toxic metals!) fragrances or additives that can irritate skin or contaminate our water supply. Truly natural handcrafted soaps and skin care products are safer and superior products for us, our families and the environment!
Your skin absorbs everything you put on it. Soap is something we use every single day, usually more than once. Make sure what your body absorbs is going to do it some good! What a wonderful and easy way to incorporate herbs into your daily life!
Our soaps, balms & oils are available at various stores and gift shops around central Illinois, we have a booth at the Old Capitol Farmers market May through October, at the Holiday Farmers markets in November and December, and of course we are happy to ship anywhere any time of year! All outlets and market dates are listed on the website here on the "markets, festivals & store outlets" tab.

Please be aware that I am making no claims that any of these products are a cure for any medical condition. They are a result of information gathered on the benefits of various plants and home remedies. They have not been tested by the FDA therefore have no studies attached to their use, only feedback from people who have tried them or from my own experience using them on myself. I have no way of predicting how individual cases will react to use of a particular product, so please apply to a test spot before regular use.
