The Story

My newest citrus soap and I’m in love with it. Such an invigorating way to start your day you’ll probably open the front door and yell “Good Morning World!” A nice way to meet new people.

Lemongrass Lizzie

The Story

I was looking for a new soap to replace “Wake Me Up Grapefruit” and I began experimenting on January 18, 2015, which was my good friend Liz’s birthday.  I used some lemongrass essential oil in the base recipe, tossed in some calendula petals, and when it came out of the mold I knew I had a winner.  Thanks for lending your label Liz!

If you want something really, really citrusy (is that even a word?) that grabs you by the scruff of the neck in your morning shower and says “WAKE UP”? Look no further, this lemongrass soap will do it delightfully.

The Reasons You Deserve Some

Contains: Saponified Olive Oil, Coconut Oil, Palm Oil, Shea Butter, dried calendula petals and Lemongrass Essential Oil.

Adding Calendula petals brings a soft scrubby quality to the soap so while the fresh scent of lemongrass cheers you, the Calendula will help slough off the skin you’re done with.

Under the Sea

The Story

I’m not a diver, nor do I play one on TV. But I imagine this is just how it looks down there all blue and green and swirly, just like an Octopus’ Garden in the Shade. This is the newest soap in my line and it sells out so quickly, at the markets, I think I’m on to something.

The Reasons You Deserve Some

Contains: Saponified Olive Oil, Coconut Oil, Palm Oil, Shea Butter. Scented with a very special blend of essential oils; Lime, Lemongrass and Clary Sage. The scent is somewhat divine if I do say so myself.

Blueberry Hill

Blueberry Hill

The Story

One day long ago, lavender flew over a blueberry field and when she landed for a closer look at all those tiny delicious little berries she got blueberry seeds all over her pretty feet. Then I woke up and made a new soap. Lavender with a twist?

The Reasons You Deserve Some

Contains: Saponified Olive Oil, Coconut Oil, Palm Oil, Shea Butter, Lavender Essential Oil, and Blueberry Seeds.

I wanted to spice up my lavender soaps with something visually appealing and when I found these gorgeous red/blue seeds I could see them perfectly blended with the lavender. The benefits for you are that lavender is calming – there’s really nothing like it to help wash away a tough day or begin a new one with a grounded, feel good attitude.
Blueberries are excellent anti-oxidants, but really, they’re for eating. I used the seeds cause they’re pretty and they’re a nice scrub for dry skin.

Lemony Lavender

The Story

This one has Lemongrass to help promote the Lavender so the scent lasts a good long time just like your overwhelming sense of calm whenever you wash with it.

The Reasons You Deserve Some

Contains: Saponified Olive Oil, Coconut Oil, Palm Oil, Grape Seed Oil, High Alpine French Lavender and Lemongrass Essential Oils with Mica for colour.

The lemongrass and lavender are blended 50/50 to create a soap which is both refreshing and calming. The lemongrass fragrance has been known to reduce headaches and irritability.

 

 

The Eliminator

The Story

The Eliminator (can you hear Schwarzenegger when you say that?) belongs beside the kitchen sink because it’s for the onion and garlic smell that clings to your hands long after the cooking is done and the meal is devoured. It’s made with coffee and essential oils of peppermint and rosemary.  They all play nicely together to eliminate the unwanted odours from your hands, making for a nice fresh chef.  Who doesn’t like a nice, fresh chef?

The Reasons You Deserve Some

Contains: Saponified Olive Oil, Coconut Oil, Palm Oil, Shea Butter, Coffee and Coffee Grounds), Cocoa and Rosemary and Peppermint Essential Oils.

 

Oatmeal, Milk & Honey

The Story

Smells like Granny’s oatmeal cookies . . . again, don’t be tempted to take a bite. It’s still soap for crying out sideways.

The Reasons You Deserve Some

Contains: Saponified Olive Oil, Coconut Oil, Palm Oil, Shea Butter, Ground Oats and Oatmeal, Milk & Honey Fragrance Oil.

 The ground oats in this soap lightly scrub your skin, leaving it feeling clean and renewed.

Man Up

The Story

Sensuous sandalwood combined with earthy Patchouli.  Smells like you wish he would. So go ahead, get him some and see what happens.  Just sayin . . .

The Reasons You Deserve Some

Contains: Saponified Olive Oil, Coconut Oil, Palm Oil, Shea Butter, Sandalwood Fragrance and Patchouli Essential Oil, Cocoa, Black Oxide.

Besides being an antidepressant, antiphlogistic, antiseptic, astringent, cicatrisant, cytophylactic, deodorant, diuretic, febrifuge, fungicide, insecticide, Patchouli Essential Oil is also an aphrodisiac.  Again, just sayin . . .

 

Not Quite Purple Haze

The Story

There once was a soap called Purple Haze – it was half Patchouli and half Lavender.  Let’s just say it was a real acquired taste.  There’s one or two loyal clients who buy in bulk but other than them, nobody wanted all that Patchouli.  So, Not Quite Purple Haze came on the scene.  A different ratio of Patchouli to Lavender made all the difference and now, well it’s just groovy man, groovy.

The Reasons You Deserve Some

Patchouli essential oil has a sweet musky scent that has aphrodisiac qualities.  Lavender is calming. Sounds like a great afternoon to me.  

Contains: Saponified Olive Oil, Coconut Oil, Palm Oil, Shea Butter, Patchouli and Lavender Essential Oils.

 

BRAND NEW FOR FALL 2017!

Cha Cha Chai

The Story

I love Chai Tea so much I thought I’d see if I could use it to make soap.   The exotic scent of Chai didn’t stay strong through the soap making process.  Well, it sort of did, but I added five spices to the Olive Oil and used some French Vanilla scent and now it really smells like Chai.

The Reasons You Deserve Some

Why Chai?  Well, why not?  The soothing scent might just transport you off to faraway exotic locales like India, only, since you’re likely in your own bathroom, you won’t have 1.3 billion people already there sharing with you. Use this new fall scented soap in your bath and enjoy a cup of Chai Tea while soaking.  Could it get more relaxing?  I think not. 

Contains: Saponified Olive Oil, Coconut Oil, Palm Oil, Shea Butter, Chai Tea, 5 spice blend, French Vanilla Fragrance Oil.

 

Plain Jane

The Story

There’s a whole lot of folks out there who like natural soaps and don’t like scents or fragrance.  As the old saying goes, this one’s for you! And don’t be fooled, she may be called Plain Jane but she’s still gorgeous!  She’s pure natural colour, nothing adding and she still gives you a very creamy lather.

The Reasons You Deserve Some

 This is the one I’d recommend for children, pregnant women and generally, people who really can’t tolerate fragrances.  You still get all the benefits of an artisan natural soap with none of the things that may be bothersome to you.

Contains: Saponified Olive Oil, Coconut Oil, Palm Oil, Shea Butter, and, oh wait, that’s it!!

 

Bodacious Bordeaux

The Story

You know how the red wine looks against the inside of the glass when you first pour it? It sort of sticks to the glass for a few seconds? That’s called legs. And baby, this soap has legs. And you can use it on your legs. Or your arms, or any other part of your little self.  Bathing with wine. A dream come true really.

The Reasons You Deserve Some

Contains: Saponified Olive Oil, Grape seed Oil, Coconut Oil, Palm Oil, Shea Butter, Red Wine. Scented with Black Raspberry Vanilla Fragrance Oil.
Having wine in the soap creates a luxurious lather and the grape seed oil is a terrific by-product of the wine making process that can help with skin repair, as it has astringent and antiseptic qualities.

THE WINE LINE

The sun setting over the vineyard while you enjoy a glass of ice cold Pinot Grigio on the hilltop patio.  This soap takes me back to that happy place.  Every time.  Best enjoyed in a warm tub with a cold glass of the real thing.

The Reasons You Deserve Some
