Handcrafted Natural Bath & Body Products, Candles, Gifts|
All products are handcrafted and made right here in Dryden. Most items have natural, simple, and easy-to-pronounce ingredients (what a relief).
What started out as a hobby (born from necessity, as I have extremely sensitive skin) has truly become a way of life.
I currently make all of my own skin care items and bath items, and have even started making household cleaners (still in testing phase – watch for those soon!), in an effort to reduce the amount of chemicals and unnatural ingredients that I put into my body.
After a lot of encouragement from family, friends, and customers who love my products as much as I do - I decided it was finally time to share the things I make, with our little corner of the online world. :)
I take care to select the best raw materials I can find that are not tested on animals, and are GMO free, pesticide free, paraben free, dye free, and SLS/SLES/SLSA free whenever possible. Many products are vegan - with the exception of those made with goats milk, honey, or beeswax, of course – and some even contain organic and/or locally-harvested ingredients.
I use high-quality carrier oils and natural, unrefined butters (cocoa butter, shea butter, etc.) to make most of my bath & body items. I am currently on the hunt for local beeswax – so let me know if you know a guy. ;)
I don't use preservatives or artificial/man-made ingredients unless it is absolutely necessary. (that means my products have a shorter shelf life, but I think it's worth it)
When I must use preservatives or other slightly weird ingredients, I do a lot of research to choose the safest and most natural products I can find. I am constantly educating myself on new and better products, and tweaking/testing recipes all the time.
Practices (our standards for raising or making our products)
All products are made in small batches to ensure freshness and quality, and have been tested on myself (and other willing human subjects) extensively before posting them on here for sale - so you can be sure you're getting something really great.
