Safety & Tips

 

General Safety - for all of our natural products

Although we use the highest quality natural oils, butters, botanicals, essential oils, perfumer/cosmetic grade fragrance oils & other ingredients in all of our products, they still may not be suitable for everyone. We want every customer to be safe & enjoy all the benefits of our handcrafted natural products.

** If you have allergies to ANYTHING; nuts, specific oils, butters, flowers, botanicals, essential oils, fragrances, specific scents, etc., please check the soap’s ingredients BEFORE ordering. Do NOT use if you are allergic and/or sensitive to any ingredient in these products. If you are unsure, test the product on a small patch of skin for 24 hours. If irritation or redness develops, discontinue use immediately, just in case.

** If you’re pregnant, nursing, or have any potentially serious medical condition, please check with your doctor first regarding the ingredients in our products, just to be safe. For example, Peppermint essential oil is not recommended for use by women while they are pregnant.

Natural Soaps

** Please remember that our soap bars are 100% handcrafted from scratch, so each bar is totally unique & no two bars will ever be exactly alike. The size, weight & appearance of each bar may vary and the bar you receive may not look exactly like the bar in the pictures.

** For External Use Only - Although our soap bars smell scrumptious & delicious, please do not attempt to eat or place in your mouth.  Also, please keep soap lather away from eyes! Remember, our bars are REAL soap, so they will sting your eyes. If this occurs, rinse your eyes immediately with plain water.

** Soap that contains Citrus Essential Oils may cause increased sensitivity to the Sun.

Natural Soap TIPS:

**For longer lasting soap bars, please store soap bar on a well draining soap dish, away from water. Keep as dry as possible between use.

** Have problem skin, eczema, psoriasis, etc? - try any of our natural Goatsmilk soaps, especially our Calendula & Goatsmilk.

** Tired of swatting bugs & mosquito’s? - Try our Lemongrass soap. Lemongrass essential oil is part of the citronella family and is a natural insect repellent!

** Rough hands from frequent washing? - use our natural soaps to wash your hands. Frequent hand washing tends to dry out the hands, but the natural oils & butters in our soap bars will help keep your hands soft & smooth. For even more moisture, use our Hand Lotion after washing your hands.

** Want nice smelling lingerie & clothes? Wrap one of our natural soap bars in a cloth and place in your lingerie or clothes drawer. After a month or two, replace with a new bar and bathe with the previous bar.

** Want a nice smelling car? Wrap your favorite soap bar in a rag and place under your front seat. After scenting your car for a month or two, replace with a new bar, and use the previous bar to bathe.

 

Sugar Scrubs

** You can use our sugar scrubs on your arms, hands & face at the sink, then rinse off with water. For full body use, our sugar scrubs are best used while showering. But, be careful as the oils in our scrubs can make your bath tub a bit slippery, so no dancing while you shower!

** For External Use Only - Although our sugar scrubs smell scrumptious & delicious, please do not attempt to eat or place in your mouth.  Also, please keep scrubs away from eyes as they may potentially cause irritation. If this occurs, rinse your eyes immediately with plain water.

Sugar Scrub TIPS:

** Use our natural soap with the same or complimentary scent as your sugar scrub to layer the scents.

** Have dirty hands? - use our Coffee & Brown Sugar Whipped Foaming Scrub. This scrubs whipped foaming action lathers like soap and will cleanse your hands while keeping them soft & smooth.

** Due to the potential warmer temperatures encountered when shipping sugar scrubs, the oils may melt or soften up a bit during shipping. When you receive your sugar scrubs, place in your refrigerator for 15 - 30 minutes before opening. This will harden up the oils and you can stir if necessary.

 

Body Butters

** For External Use Only - Although our body butters smell scrumptious & delicious, please do not attempt to eat or place in your mouth.  Also, please keep body butters away from eyes as they may potentially cause irritation. If this occurs, rinse your eyes immediately with plain water.

Body Butter TIPS:

** When applying makeup, apply a small amount of body butter to the face before applying foundation to help moisturize the skin.

** Use our natural soap & sugar scrub with the same or complimentary scent as your body butter to layer the scents.

** Due to the potential warmer temperatures encountered when shipping Body Butters, the oils may melt or soften up a bit during shipping. When you receive your body butter, place in your refrigerator for 15 - 30 minutes before opening. This will harden up the oils and you can stir if necessary.

 

Gourmet Lip Balms

** If you have a Nut Allergy, be aware that we use Sweet Almond Oil in all of our Gourmet Lip Balms.

** For External Use Only - Although our Gourmet Lip Balms smell scrumptious & taste delicious on your lips, please do not attempt to eat or place in your mouth.  Also, please keep lip balm away from eyes as they may potentially cause irritation. If this occurs, rinse your eyes immediately with plain water.

Gourmet Lip Balm TIP:

** Want cool lips or a lip balm that’s just a bit harder? Pop our Gourmet Lip Balm into the refrigerator for 15 - 30 minutes. The oils will harden up a bit and the balm will be cool to your lips.

 

Hand Lotions

** It may take a minute or so for the oils in your hand lotion to completely absorb into your skin. Let the oils absorb completely before attempting to grip anything with your hands.

** For External Use Only - Although our Hand Lotions smell scrumptious, please do not attempt to eat or place in your mouth.  Also, please keep hand lotion away from eyes as they may potentially cause irritation. If this occurs, rinse your eyes immediately with plain water.

Hand Lotion TIPS:

** Our Hand Lotion is nice & thick like toothpaste and will stay where you put it until you rub in. Try squeezing out a small line of lotion in your palm, then turn your hand upside down. The lotion stays put and doesn’t drip or spill.

** If you wash your hands frequently, follow up with our Hand Lotion to add additional moisture and keep your hands soft & smooth.

 

Wax Melts

** Only use wax melts in an approved wax melt burner.

Wax Melt TIPS:

** Want to freshen up the scent of your room? Use our wax melts, they’re much safer than burning candles, especially when there’s small children present. Also, they tend to give off stronger scents than candles as there’s no flame present to burn off the fragrance.

** You can freshen up your clothes by placing a wax melt container in your lingerie or clothes drawer. Just open the lid and leave open in your drawer. After a couple of weeks, use the wax melts in your wax burner to freshen your room.
