NEW SAMPLER BOTTLES & JARS

Image
I have done away with the mini samplers as it is hard to fit any larger size bottles in those plastic sampler bags so I am finished with those. Those were so cute and neat for samplers but they just didn't hold much in them. So I decided to just add some of my 1oz sampler size jars and bottles. Great to try before you commit to buying larger size products and not liking it. I don't want customers to waste their money on items they are not sure about.

Try these nice size 1 oz sampler bottles
Shea Butter Lotion
Creamy Shea Butter Body Wash
Luxury Scented Body Wash

Or you can try these cute little 1 oz size sampler jars

Custom Creamy Hand Cream

WHAT TO LOOK FOR IN HOMEMADE PRODUCTS

Image
I notice a lot of business that sell cream, lotions, whipped body cream and butters are actually made from premade bases. What do I mean by premade bases? These creams are no different than creams and lotions you buy at your local Walmart. Lotions, creams and hair care items such as shampoos, conditioners, body washes that are already made up and sold in bulk by suppliers and have fragrance oils added to them and sold to buyers at 7.00 for a 4 oz bottle. YOu are better off going to your local drug store or Walmart for these creams and lotion because they are no different. I myself use and have used some of these base on certain items but I do not claim that they are handmade from scratch. I myself have used premade bases but I do not or have not sold them for outrages prices either. So I am not innocent of using them myself.

Some sellers just don't specify that they are made from premade bases, and are not required to do so if they are premade as far as I know, but the way you ca…

Ingredients That I Use

Here are some of the ingredients that I either use in my soaps or in my products. Preservatives are only used if the products will not be used in a short period of time other than that I do not use preservatives or other artificial ingredients to make my products usable.

Aloe Vera - Aloe barbadensis - native Texas succulent, often called "The Miracle Plant", soothing, emollient, antibacterial, heals skin irritations, burns, and wounds, promotes new skin growth, moisturizes, protects, and counters the effects of aging; we use certified organic aloe

Annatto Seed - Bixa orellana - imparts a beautiful earthy yellow color to foods and cosmetics and is antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, antiseptic, astringent, and emollient

I use this to give a nice rich color to my soaps.

Beeswax - Cera alba - unbleached and pure, cosmetic grade, used to give a waxy feel to cosmetics, also possesses healing qualities, only our balms contain beeswax, our soaps do not
Black Willow Bark Extr…

My opinions About Soaps not made from scratch.

First let me tell you that I started out with Melt & Pour. It was a great avenue for me to get started making soap and if it wasn't for me starting with M & P I wouldn't have branched into cold process soaps. I still use some it so just wanted to let you know that. I don't think I am perfect in anyway because I chose to do soaps from scratch and don't want to put anyone else down for using M & P either. This is just my personal thoughts about it and other soaps bought in stores.

Most so called soaps are mostly synthetic, so called "soaps" that are full of harsh detergents and other unnatural chemicals. These soap are in our stores that we buy all the time.

Check out the ingredients (if they bother to give you any) and
you'll see just how many cheap oils or animal fat or Tallow and synthetic petro-chemicals their so called "soaps" really contain.

You can't add a pinch of herbs and a natural sounding names and make real soap. If s…

Why Choose My Products?

This is just to give you some insight from my perspective about why I decided to use homemade soaps.

First of all I handcraft my soaps using time-consuming cold process method, which means no external heat is used so the goodness of the natural ingredients are preserved for you. Each bar begins with a high percentage of skin-loving olive oils to which we add food grade coconut, palm and castor oils for a rich creamy lather that nourishes as it moisturizes. Next we add brewed teas, herbs, vegetable butters, and cleansing earth clays for their exceptional skin care benefits

Storing and care for your soaps

Since soaps are made with good oils is in its pure and natural state, it doesn't contain any synthetic preservatives or artificial hardeners. It doesn't need to. With just a little care and feeding, you can prolong the life of your soap and it will serve you very well.

Don't let your soap drown in water.

Feed your soap plenty of fresh air between uses.

Always use a well drain…

Yippeee New Soap!

Image
Ok yes I finally got around to making a new batch of soap. This new batch is called Almond Scrubby Soap. Pure sweet almond fragrance with an apricot seed add to it for a scrubby feel to the soap. No color was added to this soap. Pictures are coming soon as the soap is finished going through the saponification process. Once I cut it you will get a looky. Smells so good. This is made with pure olive oil, coconut oil, palm oil, castor oil. The combination of the oils will give it a nice tan and creamy look to the soap.

This is a close up shot of the soap. This has to cure for 4-6 weeks. You can see the apricot seeds in it to give it this nice texture and exfoliant.


I really want my soaps to have a special appeal to them. I want to go the natural route with my soaps without all the artificial colorings to color them. Although I still use fragrance oils, I do have essential oils as well but because of the high cost of a small bottle, I still use fragrance oils. They tend to make the scent l…

Whipped Shea Butter Cream

Image
News Flash! Well due to the high cost of Shea Butter, I decided to discontinue the hand cream due to the fact that I have to use a lot of the Shea Butter to make this cream. Instead of raising the price for my 4 oz jar, I decided to just keep making my Shea Butter Lotion. I know there are a lot of sellers that sell a 4 oz jar for 9-11.00 and to me that is just extremely high to a 4 oz jar. But I know that is what most are selling it for. I had mine prices at 5.75 a jar. But if I decided to keep the cream in my products, I would have to raise my price to 7.00 a jar. And I didn't want to do that. I want to keep my prices reasonable and not outrages. I am working on facial clays and cold creams if I can get my recipes just right but so far, nothing has come out the way I wanted. I tried an experimental recipes last night and it was a disaster. Just awful so I had to wast that batch. Luckily I didn't make a lot to waste it. I will keep you updated on my progress but so far not…

This is one of my favorite soaps. I love the smell of fresh roses. My mom always said "I rather stop and smell the roses, rather then get them after you are gone". Makes sense. You can't appreciate them when you are gone. I love the smell of any fresh flowers. This is a all natural vegan soap. This soap is made with Olive Oil, Soybean Oil, Palm Oil, Coconut Oil, Sodium Hydroxide (lye) and Pink Kaolin clay was added for this rich deep color. This also has a rose petal fragrance. A must try. You can use this with the petal or you can cut the top off but it adds a little exfoliant to the soap. I just listed these at my Etsy Shop. I am still working on my website. It takes a lot more work then my Etsy shop with is very easy to keep up with.
