Note from shop owner Hi there, and thanks for stopping by! The shop is currently on vacation while we revamp some items and listings. Also, this is our family vacation time. I will be back in late September with new products, new photos, and more glitter!

We will still be at the Crofton Farmer's Market, in Crofton, MD most Wednesdays (We'll be out of town for a few days in September) from 4-7 PM., so if you're a Maryland local, please stop by and see me!

I really appreciate your patience and understanding as we take this break from you! We are missing you dearly and look forward to seeing you again soon!

Peace, Love, and Unicorns,
Nicole

Delivered 3 Monster Ball bath bombs to a new, local customer yesterday! So excited!

About

Sometimes the right path is not the easiest one.

Hello there!

This journey started when I was working in a typical accounting job. I fell in love with essential oils (tale as old as time, right?). My boss started diffusing one day and I was just enraptured by them!

After some time and research I realized I could replace most of my bath and body care products with basic ingredients and a little spare time. All the smells and components touching my bod were under my control. Mwahahaha.

Then I started sharing my creations with friends, family, and coworkers. They loved them! I was so happy! I had so much fun and felt so free and creative in my craft corner that I eventually quit my safe, normal job to finish school and enjoy my new found profession. I'm a bath bomber, hand scrubber, soap painter, and fun maker!

I have a wonderful, supportive husband who has helped me immeasurably. I have 2 lovely kitties who frequently offer their help and comfort, especially when taking product pictures.

In my spare time I love all nerd things. I play PC games, watch movies/anime/shows, sing, and do ballroom dancing with my husband, who actually likes it.

I'm so glad you took a few minutes to read about me and visit my shop. You are amazing and I truly appreciate you! You're a beautiful, sparkly unicorn!

    Assistant, Photographer

    Hi, I'm Aurora. I actually don't check quality at all. It's all garbage anyways. I can't even eat it. I do like to keep Nicole alert by trying to trip her down the stairs with her arms full of supplies. I also enjoy photobombing her product photos.

  • Jasmine

    Assistant, Shipper

    Hi! I'm Jasmine. I make sure Nicole remembers to take occasional breaks to focus on important things like feeding me, or petting me. I'm also responsible for keeping Aurora in line when she's being rude. I also like empty supply boxes.

Frequently asked questions

Custom and personalized orders

I will gladly create a custom scent or label for you! I own many essential oils and while I am constantly striving to increase the variety in my shop, I am more than willing to work with you on a preferred scent combination. For example: If you prefer Clary Sage over Lavender, I can swap that in my Lavender Lemonade hand scrub.

If you find a scent combo on Pinterest or Facebook that you would love for me to make, just message me and if I can do so safely, I will make it for you.

Returns

I love happy customers, but due to the nature of my products and for safety reasons, I can not except returns or exchanges based on personal preference. If you do not like a particular scent once it has been received, I am deeply sorry, but I can not accept a return. I will gladly work with you to create something you will like at a discounted price or provide a refund if necessary.

I make sure to list every ingredient for each product in the description and on the label. If you have sensitivities to any of them, please do not order that product as is and instead contact me for a custom order at no extra charge. I love trying new things!

My Recipes

A LOT of people on various facebook pages and other forums have asked me to give them my bath bomb or hand scrub recipes.

While I would LOVE to help people make their own products, I will be keeping my exact ingredient and oil ratios a secret. There are many fantastic resources out on the web for making your own products. If this is something you are inclined to do, I would love to see some of your creations!

I love to share knowledge, but I would much rather you buy from me because I am a business and this is my job. :)

At some point I may offer classes to teach people how to make things for a modest fee, like a paint night or craft night kind of thing. I'll post an update as soon as that becomes a thing!

What is FCO (Fractionated Coconut Oil)?

As the name implies, Fractionated coconut oil is a fraction of coconut oil. All of the long chain triglycerides are removed, leaving mainly the medium-chain triglycerides and making it an absolutely saturated oil. This saturation gives it a very, very long shelf life and greatly increased stability. It can also be referred to as MCT (medium-chain triglycerides) oil.

It also stays in a liquid state, unlike regular coconut oil, which will solidify at temps lower than 76 degrees.

It's a very common carrier oil used with essential oils. I have been using it for quite a while now and feel very safe using it on myself and my family.

Essential Oils & Safety

Essential oils are strong, aromatic compounds distilled from plants. Some of my products use small amounts of them. Please read the product descriptions and labels carefully for full ingredient lists.

Essential oils are not FDA approved to treat or cure any disease. If you are pregnant, breastfeeding, or have an existing medical condition, please consult your doctor or naturopath for specific diagnosis and treatment.

Do not use citrus essential oils immediately before going into direct sunlight. They are known to cause photosensitivity of the skin.

If you have a mild reaction to the oils, dilute the area with a carrier oil like olive or coconut oil. Consult a doctor if the irritation persists or a serious reaction occurs.
