I have a passion for making hand crafted items such as soap, lotion bars, and lip balms. Most of the conventional products used today are loaded with toxins that not only harm our bodies, but the environment as well. http://www.ewg.org/skindeep/ is a great informative site that lists items we use everyday, and the toxicity of the ingredients they contain.


Please note: some of my products contain essential oils. Pregnant and nursing women should consult a physician prior to using products containing essential oils.

I strive to make products that are therapeutic and fun. My products are not intended to treat, cure, or diagnose any illness or disease. Please consult with a physician for diagnosis and/or treat any medical conditions.

*Please note: I am required to charge sales tax in the state of New York.


How are my products different than store bought products?

All my products are hand crafted right in my kitchen. I only use the highest quality ingredients to ensure high quality products. My bars of soap are produced using the cold process methods, which combines oils and lye (sodium hydroxide). When oils and lye combine, soap is produced.

Is the soap safe? It contains lye!

All my soap is supper-fatted, which means I add excess oils to ensure all the oils and lye react, and no lye is leftover in the soap. I make sample bars in every batch for myself, and I test each batch (with the sample bars) to ensure the soap lathers, cleanses, leaves skin soft, and is safe to use.

Does your soap last as long as store bought soap?

Hand crafted soap produced using the cold process method contains more glycerin than store bought soap. Glycerin helps keep your skin soft, however is tends to make the bar slightly softer than store bought soap, resulting in it being used up faster. To help enure your bar of soap lasts as long as it can, be sure to store it in a cool, dry place between uses (leaving it in the shower may make it very soft!)

Do you use preservative in your soap?

I do not use any artificial preservatives in my products. I strive to make them as natural as possible. Please use these products within a year of purchase to ensure maximum quality and freshness.

About

The story of Wild Thyme Essentials

I have always had a passion for the environment. I received my Bachelors of Science in Biology, and then went on to receiving a Masters in education. My goal was to reach young people on the importance of environmental issues through education.

I started to become aware of the toxic chemicals that I used every day. These chemicals are found in soap, hair care products, deodorant, and the list goes on. Not only do these chemicals get absorbed into our bodies, but the end up in the environment as well. I began to buy expensive non toxic products for several years. Eventually I decided to make my own products, starting with cold processed soap. Making my own products went from a hobby, to a passion. Today I enjoy making products, knowing I'm not exposing customers or the environment to toxic substances. I aim to use mostly saponified oils, essential oils, and natural colorants. My soaps are superfatted at around 5%. When soap is superfatted it contains excess oils, which ensures no excess lye remains in the soap. Since the soap contains excess oil molecules not bound to lye, it is more moisturizing and keeps your skin soft.



Please note: Pregnant or nursing women should consult with a physician prior to using essential oils (as many of my products contain essential oils).

***Please contact me if the recipient has any allergies to ingredients i may use since I use the same equipment for different products***

    I have always had a passion for the environment and have been conscious of the products I've used, knowing not only how they effect your body, but the environment as well. This is what led me to soap making, which became another passion of mine.
