It's almost that time...

The soap & candle sale is coming up soon! I will begin taking orders first come, first served on Monday, December 3rd at 9:00 am (California time). 

Here are some details about the products and the sale. 

**SOAP**
 
First, let me tell you a little about my soaps and why you’ll love them. :-)   My soaps are 100% all natural – never any harsh chemicals or ingredients to harm your skin. My soaps contain natural glycerine which is formed in the saponification (soap making) process. Glycerine actually attracts moisture to your skin. Most commercial soaps lack glycerine because they are extracted out for use in other products. Detergents are added in and that is why your skin can feel dry and itchy.  Consequently, homemade soap is softer, and you must let it drain and air dry well between uses.

Do you know what is in the soap you use? I do, because I control everything that goes into the soap I make! I choose only quality, natural ingredients such as coconut, organic palm, and olive oils, pure essential oils, goat’s milk, natural colorants and exfoliants. Yes, I use lye as it is essential in soapmaking, but rest assured it evaporates in the saponification process. You can read more about the properties of each specific type of soap below. 
 
All the soap is made in small batches, by the cold process method, and is cut by hand in my own kitchen. I enjoy making soap for my own family and it’s a joy to share it with you, too! These bars are large, about 5 oz each! 

I will be offering 4 different types of soap: 
All-vegetable oil 
Shea butter
Goat milk 
Goat milk oatmeal 
 


ALL VEGETABLE OIL SOAPS - $3.00 each 
Made with coconut, organic palm, and olive oils. 

016

This clean, invigorating bar contains both tea tree oil and peppermint essential oil. Tea tree oil naturally has antiseptic, antiviral, antibacterial, and antifungal properties. Peppermint will wake your shower up! A great all-over body soap, tea tree is also an especially great facial bar as the tea tree oil helps control blemishes without being overly drying for the skin. 

004

Always a favorite! Calendula petals (from the Marigold plant) contain antioxidants and carotenoids, and can be soothing to dry or irritated skin. This bar is bursting with citrus! Scented with white grapefruit, lemon, sweet orange, and tangerine essential oils. 

005

Returning to the lineup, this sweet and spicy bar is reminiscent of the tea we have come to love. Made with brewed & ground Chai tea, then enhanced with cinnamon, clove, and a touch of anise essential oils. 

035

If you love lavender, you’ll love this soap with the sweet hint of lime. French green clay colors this soap and absorbs impurities from the skin. 

SHEA BUTTER SOAPS - $3.50 each 
Same oils as the all-vegetable oil soap, with the addition of shea butter for extra richness (this is considered a "super fatted" soap). Shea butter moisturizes without clogging pores and contains skin benefiting vitamins A and E. You can really feel the difference when you use a shea butter soap. All the shea soaps are uncolored and smooth, and I'm offering three different scent combinations.

042
  
GOAT MILK SOAPS - $3.00 each 
Same oils as the all-vegetable oil soap, but the addition of goat’s milk provides rich emollients and vitamins to moisturize and nourish the skin. It contains capric-capryllic triglycerides, which are effective in moisturizing skin, and goat milk soap's gentle natural ingredients are beneficial to people with skin sensitivities or eczema. 

025

As pure as it gets, this soap is uncolored and scented with invigorating spearmint and lavender essential oils.

 019

This hand soap is specially formulated with coffee grounds to remove odors like garlic and onion from your hands. Keep by your kitchen sink! Bright & refreshing orange and tangerine essential oils will delight your senses as you clean. 

GOAT MILK OATMEAL SOAPS - $3.00 each 
All the moisture of goat milk soap, oatmeal soap also provides numerous additional benefits. It is great for both oily and dry skin types. Dry skin benefits by having its ph balanced by the oatmeal, while oily skin benefits by the absorbent nature of oats. Plus, there is a healthy fat in oatmeal that keeps skin moist. And the polysaccharides in oatmeal protect the skin after it is washed. Oatmeal soap also contains polyphenols, which benefits acne prone skin and exfoliates the surface cells; it is particularly effective for cystic acne. Oatmeal soaps lather great and provide light exfoliation.

013

This soap will remind you of an spicy oatmeal cookie. Contains the warm, sweet aromas of cinnamon and clove. 

030

Refreshing lemon, earthy rosemary, basil, and lavender essential oils, plus French green clay makes this a great complexion soap. 

Can’t decide?   
Try a sample pack!   
I will surprise you with 8 different soaps in half bar sizes.

**CANDLES** 

049

Now, for a little info on the candles. I’ve been a candle maker for about 15 years, and think you’ll love my richly scented candle formula. I use a high quality 100% soy wax blend and lead-free wicks, for a slow, clean burn. 

14 oz jars - burn time 80+ hours   $12
  8 oz jars - burn time 40+ hours   $8

The candles make great Christmas gifts (and make the most welcome holiday hostess gifts!). Of course, treat yourself to some, too, for the season! Candles can be shipped – see below for details.

I will be offering the following festive holiday scents:
Mulberry 
Candy Cane (Peppermint) 
Gingerbread 
Vanilla & Cedar 
Cranberry Woods 
Eggnog
