Following are descriptions, pricing, and photos of the products I am currently offering. All of my products are handcrafted in my home. I only use essential oils, because I have not found good quality fragrance oils with ingredients I can trust. I responsibly harvest herbs in woods, meadows, and my garden.
A listing of essential oils (EO’s) is included at the end, along with popular scent blends of EO’s. I love to be creative, so if you want something you don’t see, contact me by pm or e-mail and I’ll work with you on it.
I do not use preservatives, so it is important to keep the products clean and dry (soap excepting). With the salves, it is recommended that you use a clean cotton swab or other implement to remove the required amount. With the other products, wash your hands with soap and water before touching the contents to prevent introducing molds and bacteria.
Regarding the balms and body butters, these are made from whipped tallow, which incorporates air, much like whipped cream. If they are exposed to heat, the tallow will melt a bit and the product will not be as fluffy. It is still just as nourishing to the skin and good to use.
Most products are made to order, however, soap making is a three-week process. With soap, if you desire a custom blend, there will be a surcharge of $3.00 per bar, unless you order at least 7 bars (a half batch).
Measurement is by volume, not by weight.
Shipping costs: ½ oz containers fit into the small flat-rate boxes, which ship for $5.95. Most other orders will ship in medium flat-rate boxes, at $12.65. These are the priority boxes, which are usually delivered in 2-3 business days.
Payment is through PayPal and is required before products ship.
