All natural – you can feel it.
Dandelion & The Bee
The first flower our bees find in the early spring is the dandelion. We let them grow all over our yard. It’s a great joy to see the bees enjoying these bright yellow flowers. We make a tea from the dandelions for this soap. Dandelions are great healers and this soap helps to heal the skin.
It also contains raw honey and beeswax from our apiary. We add tamanu and jojoba oils. These oils help with healing and moisturizing skin. We make this soap unscented and offer a scented bar using Orange Valencia and Geranium Bourbon essential oils. This bar is a gentle healer.
Many have said they would like to eat this bar of soap, but we’d rather you bathe with it. This soap has three sources of ginger: ground ginger, ginger grass essential oil, and pureed organic ginger root. This is a conditioning bar that will begin and end your day with positive energy.
It is revitalizing and uplifting as well as healing and protective to your skin. We should also mention ginger is a powerful aphrodisiac. Coconut oil increases the cleansing ability of this bar, and provides a fluffy lather that softens the skin.
This soap is like lemonade on a hot day … refreshing! You’ll be squeaky clean, nourished and energized after using it. We’ve added some beeswax to this bar for its softening and emollient properties. You’ll be ready for a busy day, just like the honeybees in our apiary.
This bar has lemongrass and May Chang essential oils for that sparkly citrus zest. Lemongrass is a tall grass native to India and Sri Lanka. It is antibacterial and an effective skin toner. The litsea cubea is also a disinfectant and antiseptic and is known to combat acne. The avocado oil has regenerating powers and is excellent for sensitive skin. Enjoy the creamy lather as it conditions and moisturizes your skin.
If you don’t already love goats, you will after using this soap! These goats live south of Raleigh, and I know them by name. They are raised with love and plenty of room to roam.
Goat’s milk offers lactic acid, vitamins and cream. The lactic acid removes dead skin cells, the high amount of vitamin A repairs damaged skin, and the cream boosts the soap’s moisturizing effects. The selenium in goat’s milk helps prevent sun damage. And there is the lavender asking you to calm down and relax. So use this bar and let go of all of your stress and tension. Ahhhh.
This soap is for all faces. Activated charcoal in this natural homemade soap helps to gently draw out impurities in the skin while lavender essential oil helps to soothe and calm skin. A touch of tea tree oil acts as an antibacterial. The argan oil comes from Morocco. It helps with tissue healing and is an anti-inflammatory and a disinfectant. It has high levels of Vitamin E, antioxidants and skin softening agents. It contains phytosterols which decrease inflammation. The smell of it all is wonderful!
This is an unscented, mild, and gentle bar. Good for everyone, especially those with sensitive skin. Perfect for babies and those who want to be babied. The coconut oil and castor oils give this bar fine cleansing ability, and a fluffy lather that softens the skin.It is made with 70% olive oil, making it a Bastille soap. Organic carrots add nourishment and color. We’re certain Mr. McGregor used Carrot Patch soap.
