Pumpkin Au Lait!!!!
We paired REAL pureed pumpkin with our own goats milk in every bar. "au lait" means "with milk". What a GREAT combination for a fall treat! Pumpkin is amazing for the skin with its alphahydroxy acids that help skin cells turnover and regenerate, and high levels of zinc, vitamins A and C, all which bring important nutrients to your skin! We use turmeric to create the swirls in this soap and a blend of warm pumpkin, cinnamon and cloves round off this bar to create a crowd pleaser!
CURING! Available November 10th, 2015
A favorite by our customers and one that finds its way back just in time for autumn! This soap has a warm, spicy fragrance sure to please both men and women alike. Red Moroccan clay swirls this beautiful soap and a handstamped design to the back of the soap adds our own "signature" mark. This soap WILL fade from the pinkish background you see to more of a lighter brown
Curing! Available Mid November 2015
Warm Vanilla Chai!!!
A warm, delicious smelling bar of soap, reminiscent of a steamy , frothy mug of your favorite chai tea. There are even swirls of melted "whipped cream" with cinnamon flecks floating lazily over the top. Loved by both genders, this bar will make you want to curl up next to a fire!
This bar DOES bleed a warm brown "foam" and will discolor wash water. Some do not like this, others do not care! It will not stain!! LIMITED STOCK
Peppermint Tea Tree Zinger!
This soap looks a bit different than the picture to the left as we used indigo powder to make the swirls and the top of our soap is now textured (like the cranberry marmalade below) to give more "traction" when using it :) Otherwise, it is the same great scent that many of our customers have grown to love. The scent is snappy and refreshing, sure to give a pleasant "wake me up" in the morning!
CURING! Available mid November 2015
Sweet Lavender Orange Blossom!!!
A highly requested soap, this lovely, calming, soothing and "bright" bar brings a beautiful combination of lavender and sweet orange essential oils into the mix, topped off by a sparkly lemony "touch". This bar is a favorite with mothers and their young children as it is gentle and well tolerated by sensitive skin individuals (though there are those who can react so we advice asking for a sample if you are really sensitive!)
Tumeric creates the lovely natural coloring you see in the soap.
Lemon Olive Complexion Bar
This is a soap designed for the oily skin type! Grapeseed oil makes up a portion of this soap, a lightweight, less oily compound! We use pure lemongrass, bergamot, and pink grapefruit essential oils giving a light and refreshing scent that really is a treat for your face. The citrus oils are well known for clarifying oily skin.
NOT AVAILABLE right now!
Our "Hair Silk" shampoo bars are our newest line of luxury soap designed just for hair. I have not been thrilled with other shampoo bar recipes I have used in the past, but this seems like a winner. We blend a combination of hair loving oils like avocado, castor and shea butter and only a VERY small amount of coconut oil. Coconut oil lends itself to big bubble lather and a hard bar but can strip hair of its oil really fast and leave an undesireable "feel". We customize the essential oils to bring out and enhance hair color.
Some bars incorporate silk proteins in the form of all natural tussah silk, perfect for strong and healthy hair. I have been using these bars for a few weeks now and my hair is amazingly soft and very manageable. Considering I have 18 inches at least of a thick "mane" that has a mind of its own, this is no small testimony! These bars lather beautifully and it does not take much to get that lather going. As with all natural soap products ,there is not a "film" left on hair strands so be prepared for your hair to "feel different" upon rinsing. It can take a few days to a week to transition your hair from the commercial stuff from stores.
The bar to the left (colored naturally with annatto seeds) is designed for blondes and red-heads, made with chamomile, calendula and lemon peel infused tea to bring out those lighter highlights. Lemongrass essential oil is the mainstay scent in this bar! PRICE: $7.50 each
The second bar (the creamy white bar to the right) is infused with STRONG rosemary and nettle tea. Rosemary, clary sage and tea tree essential oils give a nice scent and shine to the brunette crowd. PRICE: $7.00 each
"Café Yaffa" (picture to follow)
We have also added a third bar, also for brunettes, called "Café Yaffa" (Yaffa means "beautiful" in Hebrew and we sure hope this shampoo bar does just that, for your hair!). We start out with a VERY potent expresso coffee base steeped in rosemary and nettle herbs, both quite nourishing for scalp and hair. We then add invigorating essential oils of lavender, rosemary and cedarwood as well as clove eo to bring out warm tones in brunettes. Coffee has been used for ages to color and highlight dark hair. Coffee is also reputed to stimulate hair growth:
Study proves caffeine in shampoo does penetrate to the hair follicle
Posted on April 3rd, 2007 in Hair Loss News, Hair Loss Studies by admin | 1,333 Views |
Caffeine is being used as an ingredient in some hair loss shampoos. The reason for this is that an in-vitro study was done where follicles were treated with a caffeine solution and it was found that caffeine blocks the effects of a DHT, the hormone that causes Male Pattern Baldness and damages the hair follicles
Dr Fischer, who conducted the first trial, took scalp biopsies from 14 men in the early stages of hair loss. He extracted the hair follicles and then placed them in test tubes with solutions containing different levels of caffeine. The follicles that were being treated with caffeine saw their average growth increase by around 46 per cent and the life cycle of the hair extended by 37 per cent, when compared to the control group.
This study prompted some manufacturers to add caffeine to their hair loss products.
In this study, researchers in Germany wanted to see if topically applied caffeine could be delivered to the follicle when being part of a shampoo.
According to their study they were able to prove that after 2 minutes of shampooing, the caffeine in the shampoo was able to penetrate into the scalp via the hair follicles and stratum corneum (the outermost layer of the skin).
This proves that shampoo is an effective delivery vehicle for caffeine, provided that it’s left on the scalp for 2 minutes or more.
Follicular Penetration of Topically Applied Caffeine via a Shampoo Formulation.
This is a DARK bar and will bleed when used. We recommend this product to be left in the hair for a few minutes before rinsing.
Price: $8.50 each . These bar are cut larger and you get an ounce more of shampoo bar than the other 2 bars above. (minimum weight 5 ounces)
We are pleased to introduce our new foaming goats milk soap. The benefits of our bar soap, but in the convenience and ease of a soap dispenser. We have two scents available, Lemon Drop and Rosemary Mint. Others will be added over time. If you have a special request, let us know. We are happy to oblige :)
This is our "insect repellant" formulation. Made with a customized blend of essential oils, it is a highly cleansing, deodorizing soap. Of course, we love Great Pyrenees (we breed them!!) and so the label is a bit partial! Coat conditioning ingredients designed to keep your furry four legged family member looking his or her best! Smells good too!!
Neroli Colloidal Oatmeal
This soap is loaded with colloidal oatmeal which is known by itself as a useful aid to combat dry, itchy and irritated skin. The scent in this bar is slightly sweet and it lends a nice smell to your canine companion!
Our hand/body cream is a luxurious, thick cream that spreads easily and absorbs quickly and is a delight to everyone who uses it! We have made it as natural as possible with an ingredient list that doesn't read like a technical manual of foreign, hard to pronounce names. All ingredients used were selected for a specific purpose in mind and greatly improve the feel of this hand cream. For consumer protection, we use a preservative called Optiphen which is paraben and formaldehyde free. It is the best alternative we could find next to natural preservatives like Rosemary oil or grapefruit seed extract, both which have issues in of themselves (GSE has toxicity issues)and are not trustworthy enough for preserving a milk based product in my mind!
In October 2012, we improved on our formula by including allantoin! While we make no claims on our handcream for therapeutic purposes, we do want you to read about allantoin and why we chose to add this unique compound.
Making our products is a very labor intensive process - all equipment must be sterile and great care must be taken when mixing the oil and water phase together. Then there is labeling and clean up!! About 3-4 hours goes into each batch made!!
DIFFERENT INGREDIENTS WE USE IN OUR PRODUCTS AND WHY WE CHOSE THEM:
- ALLANTOIN: Healing, moisturizing, soothing, anti-irritant, skin softening, promotes healthy tissue formation. Treats skin ulcers, wounds, scalds, burns, sunburns, carbuncles, acne and skin eruptions, fissures and abrasions, impetigo, eczema and psoriasis.
-AVOCADO OIL: bestows moisture onto sun-damaged skin. This is a great nourishing choice. For inflammation: Avocado oil reduces inflammation on irritated areas of the skin. The oil can also reduce the itching sensation. This oil reduces fine lines and wrinkles and hydrates dry skin. It also protects the skin from harmful UV rays of the sun. Also VERY high in Vitamin E, C and A...all excellent for skin! This is why we incorporate it in our dry/mature skin facial cream!
-GRAPESEED OIL: Suffer from shiny, oily looking skin? Grape seed oil, when applied properly, can help regulate your skin?s natural oil production. Almost completely odorless, very light and easily absorbed into the skin, grape seed oil also has mild astringent properties that tighten skin and help those who suffer with acne or other skin problems. Containing palmitic, palmitoleic, searic, oleic, linoleic, alpha linolenic, icosanoic, icosenoic and docosanoic fatty acids, it is a great oil for skin!
-CASTOR OIL: Castor oil, when applied to the skin, penetrates deep and stimulates the production of collagen and elastin. This in turn helps soften and hydrate our skin. It delays the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, making the skin smoother, softer and younger. The fine lines around the eye area can be treated with its application. We use this in our lip balm products.
- COCONUT OIL: Reduce inflammation, moisten, soften, ward off sun damage. Fade fine lines, discolorations, dark spots and wrinkles. Has antioxidants. Natural anti-microbial, anti-fungal and anti-viral. Protects against skin diseases. Has small amounts of vitamins A, E and K.
- GOATS MILK: Goats milk is a buffer that leaves skin close to its natural pH. Aids in the regeneration of collagen under the skin, negating the signs of visible aging. Moisturizes and soothes dry itchy skin.

- ROSEMARY EO: Wound healing, astringent, antiseptic, antibacterial, reactivating, softening, antioxidant and invigorating. Helps improve blood circulation. Aids in skin regeneration. Used in anti-aging products.
-LEMONGRASS EO: Lemongrass Essential Oil is known for its invigorating and antiseptic properties. It can be used in facial toners as its astringent properties help fight acne and greasy skin. An excellent anti-depressant, Lemongrass Essential Oil tones and fortifies the nervous system and can be used in bath for soothing muscular nerves and pain. Lemongrass shares similar properties with citronella and has a great reputation for keeping insects away.
-CALENDULA: (used in our lip balm and "Baby Kisses" handcream) Some research suggests that calendula extracts may also reduce inflammation when applied to the skin. In Germany, some doctors apply preparations of the herb to surgical incisions and other wounds that are slow to heal; studies indicate that this herb both reduces healing time and increases the quality of healing. Calendula also stimulates the production of collagen, and is used in many cosmetic creams to lessen the appearance of wrinkles and hydrate skin.
- MARSHMALLOW ROOT: (used in our lip balm) Marshmallow possesses a significant amount of mucilage and thus has been used by herbalists and other healthcare practitioners to help treat inflammation and irritation of mucus membranes. It helps people with chapped skin and helps speed the healing of wounds.
- SHEA BUTTER: Deeply moisturizing. Strengthening. Skin and UV protecting. Regenerating. Has antioxidants. Reduce inflammation. Helps heal minor cuts and burns. Reduce fine lines, wrinkles and scars. Helps heals sore muscles.
- RICE BRAN OIL:
So much to say about this AMAZING oil!!! We incorporate this in BOTH facial cream lines. Here is WHY:
- Rich in Vitamin E and fatty acids, rice bran oil is able to deeply penetrate into skin?s layers, nourishing it from within, making your skin very soft and velvety,

-I use rose water of a potent nature, making my own at home, making it using distilled water and fragrant red and pink dried rose petals. This way, *I* control the strength of the final product.
-Rose water is natural healer of various skin problems. It has certain anti bacterial and antiseptic properties that proves to be boon for the skin.
-Rose water has a pleasant fragrance that can even stimulate the nervous system.
- Rose has natural cleansing properties that can reduce wrinkles, fine lines and skin inflammation.
