Thank you Catherine for the wonderful cleansing serum and complimentary samples, I received them halfway round the world in such good time! Everything was well packaged. Will be back for the Surya cream, for sure, once another batch is made :)

All of our products are made in small batches and are original, well researched concoctions, created through trial and error, some for necessity and some for fun!

Q: Why do we use glass for most of our products?
A: Real, unadultered essential oils have the potential to erode (chemically eat through) plastics over time. Also, colored glass protects the contents of the jar from the sun, increasing the shelf life of the product. All products have a shelf life of one year to guarantee the best quality and some must be stored in a cool, dark place (Happy Hair Oil for instance). When plastics are used, I use PETE and other safe composites. We also use some steel containers, coated with tin. I have not had any compatability issues with essential oil erosion. PLEASE contact me if you notice otherwise!
Q: Why do I harp on and on about unrefined butters?
Using unrefined butter is important because butters are refined with solvents that end up stripping away the naturally occurring, healing chemicals in an effort to provide uniformity of color and texture (what a crummy trade-off)!
Q: What is the difference between organic and wildcrafted?
A: Organic ingredients are certified as such by our governmental body. At times, the herbs, resins, flowers used for essential oil distillation are gathered in the wild and are uncertifiable. These wild products are often the best, so don't get tripped up on the "organic" label - use your own noggin!
