Face Masks & Body Scrubs

Activated Charcoal & Tea Tree Oil Face Mask

20180521_124734

The main active ingredient in this silky feeling face mask is activated charcoal, from hardwood, which absorbs icky things from your skin. Tea tree essential oil gives this face mask it’s refreshing smell, as well as having many benefits to your skin. Kaolin clay & sea clay absorb excess oil, clear pores, and soften skin. Aloe vera gel soothes skin, as well as containing minerals and anti oxidants. Finally, foaming bath whip provides cleansing soap for your skin and a fluffy base for the other ingredients. 

To use this face mask, gently massage it onto your face, but not in your eyes or mouth (duh, but it needs to be said). Allow a light coating of the face mask to remain on the skin for 5-10 minutes. When the mask is dry, gently remove with water and use a towel to pat the skin dry.

Warning: Keep out of eyes. Do not ingest. Care should be taken to avoid contact with light colored towels, clothing and washcloths as charcoal may stain some fabrics.

Coffee & Raw Sugar Scrub

This sugar scrub features fresh ground coffee, vanilla fragrance oil, and raw demerara brown sugar, in a foaming bath whip base, to provide good exfoliation for all over your body, along with soap cleansing, and the most delicious smells. Extra virgin olive oil (from my family’s own farm), grapeseed oil, and vitamin E, add moisturizing and antioxidant properties. Finally, Cap 5, a vegan, paraben free, non formaldehyde donating, preservative protects this scrub against bacteria, mold, and yeast, so you can keep it in your shower.

Jasmine Salt Body Scrub

This salt scrub features both Dead Sea Salt and Epsom Salt, for muscle soothing, large piece exfoliation. Foaming bath whip gives it a soft base and soap cleansing properties. Aloe Vera Oil soothes and moisturizes skin. Jasmine fragrance oil smells like your in a sweet field of the flowers. Cap 2 preservative prevents bacteria from growing if it gets water in it, while being vegan, paraben free, and non formaldehyde donating.

Directions for Body Scrubs

Use just like an exfoliating soap:

All of the scrubs come in 8 ounce (by volume) jars, sealed, and are labeled with the net weight of product contained inside (3.8 ounces for the facemask, since it is very light and fluffy, 10 ounces for the sugar scrub, and 12 ounces for the salt scrub). $18 each, handmade with love (as well as gloves, facemask, etc). [Note similar products in stores sell for $30 – $65].

Bubble Bath Bars

These fragrant (lilac & freesia) bubble bath bomb bars, aka “Mermaid Truffles“, combine the fizzing power of bath bombs, the moisturizing layers of truffles (releasing fair trade, vegan, shea & cocoa butters into your water), and the wonder of bubble bars!

Just hold one under the streaming water as you fill your bath, crumbling or smooshing pieces to help it along, and watch the thick layers of fragrant, moisturizing bubbles form. Then lay back and enjoy, or play to your heart’s content.

You can also place them in an already filled bath and watch them fizz, but agitate the water to make more bubbles form.

Photos, Succulents and other Great Gifts

Custom Images

Dadpicpapersoaps

The magic of science has brought us special paper that can print your photograph, picture, design, or message, to personalize any soap! These do involve a 2 step curing process, and the clear soap layer on top of the picture can not be scented (but the layer behind the photo can be). The pictures look great in the soap, then dissolve with water if the soap is used and you eventually get to that layer. Due to the double curing process, these soaps take at least 1 week to make.

Succulent Soaps

These adorable soaps have around 5 shimmery green succulents on top of a brown shimmery round soap. Each succulent is hand made separately, then pieced together with the main soap. 3 currently available in a refreshing Rain Cybilia scent, will take at least 3 days to make them for custom orders.

Teacher Gifts

These cards with lip balm can be bought with or without the sparkly apple soaps, in various designs. They can also be adjusted to make messages for moms, dads, or whomever you want to say, “You’re the Balm!” to, along with a beeswax lip balm. 2 apple tote bags are also available.

Massage Soaps

Regular soaps in any color and fragrance, with massage bumps, for soothing muscles in the shower.

Just drop them in warm water and watch them fizz. Be careful when getting out of the bath, as the moisturizing oils may make your skin a little slippery.

New “You’re The Bomb!” tags attached to each one. Great for gifts.

Lip Balms & Roses

More exciting new products to keep your lips & skin soft!

 

Shimmer Lip Balm

This lip balm comes in a regular tube or tiny lip pots (they hold about the same as a tube, 0.15oz, but you can use your finger to dip into the shimmery goodness). These have a little bit of strawberry flavor oil to make the application yummy. Stardust pearl mica gives the balm its shimmer, but it still goes on clear to your lips, so you can use it with or without any lip color you choose.  The other ingredients: beeswax, avocado oil, candelilla (vegan) wax, coconut oil, and T-50 (vegan) vitamin E.

Rose Lotion Massage Bars

rosebars (3)These lotion bars are made with fair trade, unrefined Shea butter (vegan), that give it a nutty smell, along with its skin smoothing properties, and rose essential oil for a lovely fragrance. Beeswax, jojoba oil, T-50 (natural & vegan) vitamin E, and tapioca starch round out this recipe, to make a smooth lotion bar that gives you a lot of moisture. Some of  the bars have dried rose petals in the bottom. These bars come in 2 shapes: (1) a massage bar you can use directly on the skin to massage your partner – the butters and oils melt into the skin and glide along, while the shape helps loosen knots in the muscles, or (2) a rose shape for using as a regular lotion bar – keep it in your bag, bedside or bathroom and use whenever!
