About

Hello and welcome! I have a degree in pharmaceuticals from Russia. Making creams and lotions always was my passion. In a pharmacy school we made them using both natural and man made ingredients. Nowadays I usually make everything from natural products.
I had a few very good teachers from Asia and Europe, each gave me generously their knowledge and skills of using different products, manipulating them in order to achieve desired effect in lotion or cream: make it to absorb into the skin right away, create protective film, improve blood circulation and so on. It was very exiting time...
After studying medicinal plants professionally my appreciation of natural products grew tremendously. I always loved making extracts, concoctions, though it can get messy.

When I moved to USA I read some books about native plants and their uses. The Native Indians idea of God creating not only people ailments, but herbs which suppose to treat them got into my heart.
I started making soaps about 10 years ago.
The idea of putting into my product something I THINK and I AM SURE would be good for you, not SOME ORGANIZATION DECIDED WHAT IS GOOD FOR ME sounds soo alluring... Again, back in Russia I was very limited in ingredients I could order to make my own stuff...
Now I am so happy to share some of my creations with people. All my creams, lotions and soaps made from scratch from all natural, mostly organic ingredients ( exception is fun soaps- for them I use safe glycerin soap base). I do not use parabens, PEG, phtalates or SLS in my products.

I have another Etsy account with a Cosmetics shop, which has been on vacation mode for a while now:
