FlyingDaffodils' Shop Announcement

Thanks for looking at my shop. I make all-natural, top-quality body products and hand dyed silks and yarns using natural dyes and low-impact mordants and methods. All my products are as local and environmentally-friendly as possible. I use oils in my body products that are unrefined whenever possible.

If you're local, please look for my body butters at the Buffalo Mountain Coop in Hardwick, VT.

I do not use any palm oil, as its production is causing devastation to the environment, wildlife, and people in countries like Indonesia (see http://ran.org/category/issue/palm-oil for more information). I use some animal fats in my soaps that I buy and render from local farms that raise healthy animals. I don't use synthetic, petroleum-based fragrances or additives in my products, nor do I use any water. (Except soap, which can't be made without it!) I test all my products out on my family and myself. If they aren't good enough for us, they aren't good enough for you!

***Note to my soap buyers - I am not planning on listing my soaps or shampoo bars on Etsy for the near future, as I'm focusing on selling my body butters here and locally. I am still making soap for my family and for gifts, however, so let me know if you want soap, and I'll tell you what I have and make you a Reserve Listing if you're interested.

If you have any questions, comments, or suggestions about my products and/or my eco-friendly practices, please ask. I'm constantly working on lowering my carbon footprint and making body and earth-friendly products. I welcome your feedback and suggestions.

The plants I use to dye my yarns and silks are mostly local and organic. Most of my natural dyes are organic matter that would otherwise be discarded - carrot tops, extra rhubarb roots, wild goldenrod, etc. I love taking these and making them into beautiful dyes for yarn and silk. Create beautiful knitted or crocheted works with these eco-friendly, unique yarns, and decorate yourself and your children's playroom with beautiful silks, dyed with care in my home.
