Another product I would purchase again in a heartbeat! I honestly wouldn't have purchased this had it not been for a sample April sent with a previous order I placed, but once I tried it I was hooked! I put it on my hands before going to bed and when I wake up in the morning, they still feel moisturized! After only a months use, I swear my hands look younger, too! A little goes a long way, which means this jar will last quite a while. As for the scent, I don't dislike it, but I'm not totally in love with it either. I knew what it smelled like from the sample (it isn't a crazy overpowering rose scent), but it clearly didn't deter me from purchasing a 4 oz. jar and as I stated above, I would still purchase it again. Thank you so much, April, for your dedication to creating such high end products!!

I love this serum! It smells fantastic and works wonderfully! It definitely doesn't leave my face as oily as another serum I use from another shop. Sometimes I use it solo, and other times I mix it with some old face lotion I purchased from a drugstore years ago. It really helps my blemishes heal quickly when used as a spot treatment. Hopefully this product will make the transition to Bonefeathers because I would definitely purchase this again!

About

Going All Natural

Little did I know then, but it all began when I watched my mother make beautiful soaps and we spent many long evenings talking while wrapping her beautiful bars. Some of my earliest memories involve the earthy chemistry of soap, from the sounds of of a small lullaby while the spoon whirled in the big bowl, to the heady scent blends of essential oils I'd wake up to in the morning. Those were the best mornings, peeking surreptitiously at her lovingly made, super creamy bars scattered over every available surface and taking sniff after sniff.

Fast forward several years...

My passion for plants and awareness of the unnecessary chemicals in every day life had grown immensely, as had my dissatisfaction with the natural skin care alternatives on the market. Inspired by the changes I made to a cleaner and less toxic one, I started the journey towards creating an all natural body care line. My knowledge continues to improve and my passion deepens every day. The results have been absolutely beautiful, integrating the natural world with both scientific and artistic processes, and blended with creative alchemy.

I still make soap today, but my primary passion lies in creating botanical perfumes that are luscious and celebrate the natural world. I like to work with a mental image or mood I have created with light and sound firmly in place to try to 'paint' it with my nose, (so to speak). Perfume making is an incredibly rich, sensual and beautiful endeavor, especially with a pure, natural palette.

I strive to ethically source all ingredients, limit use of paraben free preservatives (only used in products that need them to maintain good manufacturing practices), include more organic ingredients where possible and provide more eco-friendly packaging. To that end I have switched to glass jars, use labels that can be removed with soap and water and all of my soap packaging is recyclable.

Every item is carefully handmade in small, artisan friendly batches. I formulate photograph, market and package it all in my smoke and pet free studio. I am very proud to offer the very best!

    If it came down to distilling one small fact that encompasses all of me, it would be this: The forest is my favorite home, I spend a lot of time wandering there as aimlessly as possible. I gather much of my creative inspiration from the outdoors :).

Hello and welcome to Little Leaf Botanics. My mission is to create and sell the most beautiful, natural and beneficial spa quality products I possibly can at reasonable prices so everyone can enjoy more of them! I only use skin safe ingredients in my products. We only use preservatives when they are for health safety reasons and/or required by law. Cold processed soaps are fully cured before selling and also PH tested them before they are family and friend tested. After the testing is complete and my products are deemed completely awesome, only then are they put up for sale. I will NEVER try out any product of my creation on an animal unless it's safe for an animal, for example, a 'doggy shampoo bar' or 'cat sweater' (Yeah right, like a cat would take that sort of silliness :-)). Please look around and above all, have a wonderful day!

Paypal and credit cards are the only currently accepted methods of payment. I will occasionally do trades but that is only on an individual basis, please contact me if interested.

*All Arizona residents are subject to a sales tax according to Arizona state law.
Shipping
*Most shipments will be shipped through the United States Postal service in first class mail unless it will save you money to send it priority mail in a flat rate box.
Very large orders will ship via FedEx.

*Orders typically will ship within two business days, custom and wholesale orders take longer.

*If you would like something shipped faster, please let me know so I set up the correct shipping charge for you otherwise it will be sent as a regular first class shipment. Please allow time for communication.

Refunds and Exchanges
I will not accept returns, however, please contact me if you are not happy with your product and I am more than happy to refund your purchase. Shipping is non-refundable. If you would like a replacement item, I will be happy to send one, however shipping charges may apply. As the business grows, I will re-evaluate my policies but, at this time, Little Leaf Botanics is a tiny artisan business and is too small to provide shipping for free unless it's part of a package deal. Thank you for understanding
Additional policies and FAQs
By purchasing and using products from Little Leaf Botanics, you agree to hold the seller not responsible for any damages arising from use. I use very safe skin friendly ingredients and test and retest thoroughly before placing items for sale, however everyone is different and therefore a reaction is always a possibility, however remote that possibly is. Thank you for understanding and please stop using any products you have the misfortune of reacting to.

Custom orders that are not purchased within one week of the date posted (unless other arrangements will/have been made) will be taken off the Etsy storefront. Please contact me at any time so I can work with you to ensure a great experience.

I am willing to complete wholesale orders, however these may take up to 4-8weeks to complete depending on order size and what is ordered. For example, I will not ship uncured cold process soap, it must be a completely usable product (which takes four weeks) before it is shipped to ensure safety and quality. All other wholesale orders (in general) require less production time unless they are very large. Thank you!
