About

Living The Luxury of Simplicity

My name is Cristy Ramos and I specialize in hand-making natural products. I love drinking coffee during any season of the year. I have three playful and joyful children. I enjoy spending quality time with my family and going out discovering places. I like to teach my teens about the making of products. My favorite activity to do at home is to make crafts with the kids.

Just as my children, I was involved in crafts since a young age. I loved making crafts and was always looking for something creative to do that I could benefit from. Some of the things I remember making were things like piñatas, crochet, embroidery, and jewelry.

I grew up and studied to be a nurse. I took care of many people, specially at a nursing home. Hygiene has been something extremely important to me since then. I remember using chlorine bleach to clean everything in my house, liquid detergents for dishes and laundry, commercial soap bars for face and body. I thought of these products as essential to my lifestyle and never cared about the toxic ingredients in them.

Never in my life I imagined all of those products mentioned to be replaced with something eco-friendly, or even further, to make them at home! Two years after my third child was born, in 2010, he was having allergic reactions to many of the baby products we used on him, so I stopped using them. I sought for substitutes and as I was heading to my nearest retail store, I drove by a herb store and found handmade soap. My instant reaction was not pleasant, I was honestly a little crept out with the idea that it was handmade. I still bought it and used it on my baby.

The handmade soap did not cause any allergic reaction to my baby's skin. I was very happy and surprised! I compared the ingredients of the handmade soap with the commercial "soap" and the list was shorter and just by looking up the components, I knew the handmade soap was much better. I then integrated handmade soaps in my household.

I also read about living more simple by using handmade products with natural ingredients and being more conscious about what you put on your skin. I was changing my lifestyle, product by product. It was a luxury to me living that simple so I call this lifestyle The Luxury Of Simplicity.

Later on, I got curious to read about soap-making. My creative self instantly became obsessed with the idea of it, so I gave it a go. I experimented with a bunch of different soap formulas and was left with soap bars all over my kitchen and dining area. If a formula did not turn out the way I wanted, I would always try to make it the right way by looking back at the formula and changing percentages. It was fun trying out many ways to make soap. My favorite method was using the cold process method.

When I finally realized there were too many soap bars laying around, I started giving them away to local friends and family. After I received great feedback on them, my son Israel encouraged me to open an online shop. He explained I could continue my soap-making hobby and at the same time provide eco-friendly products to people who want to live The Luxury Of Simplicity.

​​​Late December in 2012, as a family we made the decision to open a shop on Etsy. Soon enough, what was my hobby became a full-time job I enjoy a lot. We became more and more busy over time and my two teens voluntarily helped me in what they could. I appreciate them very much and just as this business is mine, is theirs too. Shortly after New Year's in 2013, we became members of the Alabama Soap & Candle Association and my son opened up our website.

Growth is always a great thing and as a family and business, we are all growing together! My goal is to offer the best to you and my dream is to someday have a mortar and brick store, with room to create and sell our products.
