All of my candles and tarts are made from all natural soy wax and lead free wicks. I use eco-friendly, sustainable supplies and recycled containers whenever possible. Most if not all of my scent oils are pthalate-free. The reed diffuser base is also DPG-free and VOC compliant. The reeds are 3mm in size and all natural, responsibly harvested rattan.

Benefits of Goats Milk Soap:
Goats milk has many vitamins and other essential elements to help nourish skin. These include vitamins A, E, C, some of the B vitamins, amino and citric acids, unsaturated fatty acids and zinc. Goats milk is antimicrobial, Natural creams in goat's milk soap help keep moisture in skin better than commercial soaps.

Goat's milk soap contains caprylic acid, making goat's milk soap an alkaline product with a low pH, close to the pH of human skin. This allows better delivery of moisture and nutrients from the soap and prevents dryness and other negative skin reactions. Additionally, goat's milk soap contains lactic acid, an alpha hydroxy acid commonly included in skin rejuvenation products. Alpha hydroxy acid helps slough off dead skin cells, leaving smooth new cells at the surface.

In the commercial soap manufacturing process, glycerin is typically removed because the substance is valuable to sell for its moisturizing properties. Goat's milk soap contains glycerin for luxurious skin softening.

About

From Here to There

I've always had an appreciation for pretty things that smell nice. I think most girls do. As I got older I began to have an appreciation for making my own as well. I've always had a "Do it Myself" attitude anyway.

After around 20 years in Information Technology, I lost my job. I did everything that was expected of me. I was even told I did a great job and was a valued employee but they had to cut costs.

Well, I could either wallow in self pity or I could do something. I now see this potential devastation more as a blessing in disguise. I began to get more into gardening, herbalism and natural remedies and learned how to make candles. Eventually, I researched and taught myself how to make soap. Each batch is better than the last. Eventually I branched out into jewelry as well.

I've always loved jewelry. Its in my blood. My great-grandfather was a jeweler and a clock maker.

I make things that I like, things that I hope others will like as well. I get inspiration anywhere and everywhere.
