Winter White soap
If you lived in the North Pole and walked out of Santa’s Workshop and took a deep whiff, what would you expect to smell? Winter White is designed to invoke a subtle twist on clean air mint with notes of Spearmint, Peppermint and exotic Water Mint. Of course, at Santa’s Workshop, you won’t be surprised to find a few notes of Chocolate and Hot Cocoa wafting out of the windows as well. This blend is finished up with a beautiful soft dry down of Vetevyr and delicate West Indian Vanilla.

 13 bars left. $4 or a combo of 10+ $3.50 a bar

Oatmeal has a long history of use as a softening agent that helps to soothe sensitive or irritated skin. Ground-up oats found their way into cleansing and beauty bars centuries ago, imparting an appealing texture, colour and scent.
Oatmeal is used in soap primarily as an exfoliant that both removes dead cells and stimulates circulation under the skin to maintain a healthy and attractive glow. all the cereals, oats are said to have the best amino acid balance and are a soothing, anti-inflammatory agent. Those who have used soaps with oatmeal content say that it relieves minor skin irritations and the itching from mild eczema.

Benefits of the Oils I Use

The key to any healthy, natural soap is the oil that is used as the base.  Another reason I use organic oils is to assure none of the oils are genetically modified. 

100% natural Cocoa Butter
1.  natural antioxidants
2.  naturally rich in Vitamin E
3.  contains cocoa mass polyphenol 
4.   aromatherapy promoting relaxation and the feeling of well-being
5.   superb moisturizer

Organic Coconut Oil
1. High in anti-oxidants. It penetrates skin tissue protecting and preventing against the formation of free   
2.  soothes and moisturizes, dry skin
3.  helps eliminate athlete’s foot
4.  reduces chronic skin inflammation
5.  assist in treating psoriasis, eczema, and dermatitis

Organic Palm Oil
1. contains toctrienols, which are members of the vitamin E family
2.  fights free radicals that damage the skin
3.  heals and protects
4.  high in beta carotene
5.  deep moisturizing properties

Organic Olive Oil
1.  contains a natural moisturizer, called squalene
2.  contains chlorophyll
3.   A and E vitamins,
4.  as well as some polyphenols
5.  good internally and topically

Organic Sunflower Oil
1, 2, 3, 4 & 5.  high amounts of Vitamins A, B, D and E, minerals, lecithin, insulin, and unsaturated fatty

Organic Almond Oil
1.  refreshing fragrance which has positive impacts on your senses.
2.   vitamin E in abundance
3.   great emollient properties
4.   keeps the PH of the skin at normal level
5.  antioxidants

There are a few oils I won't use. 

The first one is lard.  Not always but most of the time lard does not make a good lather and it does leave an odd smell unless you use a strong fragrance oil.

Soybean oil.  If it's not good to eat it's not good for your skin!

Canola oil.  Again if it's not good for your insides it's not good for your outsides.

These are my opinions and only reflect my personal convictions.

Flocks of chicks

Thank you all for ordering Hen N Chicks Soap in January.  Just bought 2 flocks of chicks! 

Can't wait to do it again in March.

Heifer International

I thought you would like to know 10% of all sales (not just profit) goes to what else?

Look for a welcome video in the following weeks, What's In A Name?

Cocoa Butter Vanilla Mint

Saponified ORGANIC oils of coconut, palm, olive, almond & cocoa butter.  Vanilla crystals & 100% pure peppermint essential oil.

Looking for a knock-out-wake-me-up bar? How about one with double the amount of cocoa butter for soft skin?  This bar is both! Vanilla naturally turns cold process soap brown.  Don't worry the soft tinted lather washes away clean.


Blueberry Butter

Saponified ORGANIC oils of coconut, sunflower, olive & cocoa butter.  Fragrance oil.

This batch has double the normal amount of cocoa butter making it a very soothing bar for winter.  I do use a fragrance oil so if that doesn't bother you the smell of ripe blueberries will take you to a beautiful summer day smack in the middle of a blueberry patch.

For the month of January this bar is $3.50.

Star Anise

Saponified ORGANIC oils of sunflower, olive & coconut.  100% pure star anise essential oil.

If I was not worried about breaking copyright laws I would call this soap Kookaburra licorice.  Have you ever tried Kookaburra licorice?  It is a very soft intoxicatingly strong licorice made in Australia.  When I shower with this soap I can close my eyes and almost taste it as I breath deep.  Besides my Honey N Oats face soap this is my all time favorite body bar.  If I only made this body bar soap ever again I would happy. 

For the rest of January this bar is only $3.50.

Why cinnamon in soap?  Why not?

Cinnamon boosts the activity of the brain and hence acts as a good brain tonic. It helps in removing nervous tension and memory loss.

Eucalyptus essential oil is antiseptic, antifungal, promotes healing and rejuvenates your skin. But just as important are the uplifting effects of eucalyptus on the mind. Eucalyptus has a cooling, refreshing effect that we can all use these days.

Lemony Lavender Castile

The health benefits of lavender essential oil include its ability to remove nervous tension, relieve pain, disinfect scalp and skin, enhance blood circulation and treat respiratory problems. Lavender has the Latin name Lavare, which means “to wash”, due to its aroma that gives the feeling of a clean aroma.

The health benefits of lemon oil can be attributed to its stimulating, calming, carminative..., anti-infection, astringent, detoxifying, antiseptic, disinfectant, sleep inducing, and antifungal properties. These benefits of lemon oil include its ability to treat stress disorders, fever, infections, asthma, over weight, insomnia, skin disorders, hair disorders, stomach problems and tiredness.

Both of these oils are in Lemony Lavender Castile soap.

January Sale $3.50/5oz bar.
