The "kitchen sink" of facial creams. Herbal healing, floral wisdom and nourishing oils work together for a beautiful complexion.
Ideal for all skin types, a facial moisturizing cream utilizing healing herbal oils and essential oils. Ideal for those with sensitive or allergy prone skin.
Lavish Lotion is a cream with a sweet, floral aroma which is bound to start your day off with a smile.
Ylang-ylang essential oil has such a euphoric scent that when combined with faithful lavender and refreshing lemongrass essential oils offer one of life's little pleasures.
Ylang-ylang and lemongrass contain antiseptic and astringent properties great for those with oily skin prone to breakouts.
Lavender offers all around benefits in skin and beauty care. It helps relieve bug bites, blemishes, sunburn as well as skin-regeneration in reducing the chance of scars.
Apricot kernel oil is a seed oil high in Vitamin E, a good alternative for those with nut allergies. The oil is cold-expeller pressed which means no chemical solvents were used to extract the oil.
Olive oil is a stable oil used for herbal infusions to extract the beneficial properties of the herbs. Lavish Lotion contains an herbal oil infusion utilizing St. Johnswort and Calendula.
St. Johnswort is a roadside wildflower used for its therapeutic value in treating nerve related skin rashes, burns and wound care.
Calendula is a garden flower containing carotenoids which aid in healing and nourishing the skin.
Coconut oil is added for its cool, creamy texture as well as its help to stiffen the cream. Its unique molecular structure allows it to easily absorb into your skin while not leaving behind a greasy film. The natural antioxidants found in coconut oil fight against free-radicals which damage connective tissue and cause the skin to lose elasticity and wrinkles
For those who prefer a substitution for coconut oil, we use what is called African Cocoa Butter or Shea Butter. The shea nut is harvested and ground into a rich vegetable butter that offers multiple benefits for the skin: protecting, nourishing, moisturizing, soothing, comforting, healing and regenerating. Shea Butter easily penetrates the skin allowing the skin to breathe without clogging the pores. The addition of shea butter offers a little fluff to the final cream .
Moisturize as needed onto clean skin. Due to various skin types, you may only need a tiny bit at a time or you may only need a moisturizer as a night cream.
To minimize the risk of contamination make sure you have clean fingers before dipping into the cream or use some other form of tool for dipping.
Beauty tip: Don't forget to moisturize your neck!
Cream comes in a 2 oz. jar

What home remedies and skin care products did past generations use to care for their families?
Wholesome and practical, natural and affordable is the best way to describe our line of body care.
Guided by wisdom and knowledge passed down from past generations, our products consist of ingredients provided by our natural world.
Information and recipes often tucked away in quaint old books resurface to remind us that 'simple is best'.
Knowledge of what is in your products is the start to taking back control as a consumer.
Utilizing herbs, flowers, aromatherapy, and oils without the use of parabens, artificial colorings or synthetic fragrances to create natural solutions to personal and family care needs. Several items can also be used for the care of your dog; a few that are also safe for cats.
Ingredients used are purchased from reputable, certified organic companies or grown organically in my own gardens.
No need for concern about the harm to animals as there are no animal products or animal testing involved in these products.
Though there is a section labeled Babies, Children, there are many items throughout the shop wonderful for children. The items within the Babies, Children, Pregnancy section simply make it easier to find items for very young children and pregnant women.
NOTE ON PRESERVATION:
Items are made in small batches as they are needed. In our attempts to avoid the use of parabens as preservatives, only natural preservatives are used. The paraben family includes methylparaben, propylparaben, butylparaben and ethylparaben. Parabens are synthetic (aka chemical) preservatives commonly used to increase the shelf life in cosmetics and personal care products. Being parabens have been known to cause skin problems as well as disrupt the body's endocrine system, we'd rather leave them out of our products. Our philosophy is that your body care products should be fresh (as with anything put into or onto your body) and are not meant to sit on a shelf for lengths of time.
Natural preservatives used include antimicrobial grapefruit seed extract, antioxidant Vit. E and the concentration of essential oils if used. What this means is that while these natural preservatives deter the growth of bacteria and molds, they are not broad spectrum and offer a limited shelf life. Products which contain water such as the creams and lotions are the most at risk for contamination. Such at risk products should be used within about 4 months. The salves, balms, honey, salts, powders, butters, and oils, containing no water, are very stable as is and are fine for months. Keep any of the products in a cool location, and out of exposure to heat and sunlight. Refrigeration will extend the shelf life of perishable items.
Natural skin care rewards you with the knowledge of knowing what you are putting on your body, thereby greatly reducing the chance of skin irritation or allergic reaction. Immune systems differ, therefore there is always the risk of sensitivity even with natural products.
Should there be a sensitivity or allergy to an ingredient in a product, let me know and if possible we can substitute.
Shifting to natural body care gears you away from commercial hype concerning beauty and more towards trusting your own intuition. Feel nurtured and more spiritually in tune with what your body needs to remain in good health, which is the description of beauty.
