Announcement   The "Sunwashed Linen" scent has been discontinued but a new scent is now available that is very close called "Lush Linen". If Sunwashed Linen is a favorite, do yourself a favor and check out Lush Linen.

Everything here is handmade by me. I specialize in customization. Get a custom made candle, diffuser or a piece of jewelry or buy something that I've already made like an adorable tie-dye. I'm working on adding more items all the time.

I make natural cold process soaps including goats milk, castille, beeswax and coconut. Some soaps are vegan. I use natural colorants in my soaps. Some use essential oils and herbal infusions and some contain scent oils.

I also make custom soy candles, tarts, reed diffusers and unique handmade jewelry. I also make fantastic lip balms that get rave reviews at live sales. Its probably my biggest seller. I use all natural ingredients whenever possible in my creations. I've also begun making tie-dye.

Can't find what you're looking for? I specialize in custom orders. Check out my "Custom and Pick a Scent" section in my shop. Whether it be custom jewelry, diffuser set or custom made candles. Options are in the listings where available. If you still can't find what you're looking for, feel free to ask.

Custom, made to order "Tree of Life" necklaces make great gifts. Personalize with birthstones for a "Family Tree" or request natural or gemstones in a certain color. Please allow some extra time on shipping for custom made to order items. If you need an item by a certain date, please let me know.

All of my candles and tarts are made from all natural soy wax and lead free wicks. I use eco-friendly, sustainable supplies and recycled containers whenever possible. Most if not all of my scent oils are pthalate-free. The reed diffuser base is also DPG-free and VOC compliant. The reeds are 3mm in size and all natural, responsibly harvested rattan.

Benefits of Goats Milk Soap:
Goats milk has many vitamins and other essential elements to help nourish skin. These include vitamins A, E, C, some of the B vitamins, amino and citric acids, unsaturated fatty acids and zinc. Goats milk is antimicrobial, Natural creams in goat's milk soap help keep moisture in skin better than commercial soaps.

Goat's milk soap contains caprylic acid, making goat's milk soap an alkaline product with a low pH, close to the pH of human skin. This allows better delivery of moisture and nutrients from the soap and prevents dryness and other negative skin reactions. Additionally, goat's milk soap contains lactic acid, an alpha hydroxy acid commonly included in skin rejuvenation products. Alpha hydroxy acid helps slough off dead skin cells, leaving smooth new cells at the surface.

In the commercial soap manufacturing process, glycerin is typically removed because the substance is valuable to sell for its moisturizing properties. Goat's milk soap contains glycerin for luxurious skin softening.

About

From There to Here

I've always had an appreciation for pretty things and things that smell nice. As I got older I began to have an appreciation for making my own as well. I've always had a "Do it Myself" attitude anyway. My mother was very creative. She was a fantastic singer, painter and seamstress and as I got older I came to have more of an appreciation for her creativity and talent.

After two kids and a divorce I went back to school and studied to be a Systems Administrator. After around 20 years in Information Technology, I lost my job when the economy crashed. I was told I did a great job and was a valuable employee but they had to cut costs. It was devastating. Well, I could either wallow in self pity or I could do something. I now see this possible disaster as more of a blessing in disguise. I began to learn about gardening, using herbs and natural remedies and learned how to make candles. Eventually, I researched and taught myself how to make soap. Melt and pour at first, then hot process and now I make cold process. Ever since I was a kid I suffered from eczema and between this, having new grandbabies with sensitive skin and my mother being diagnosed with cancer and having skin issues I wanted to make soap that was gentle and good for your skin. Something that we all could use and enjoy.

Eventually I branched out into jewelry as well and now I'm also making lip balms and tie-dye. I've always loved jewelry. Its in my blood. My great-grandfather was a jeweler and a clock maker. I've found a profound sense of accomplishment as well as joy in making beautiful yet useful things. I specialize in custom orders online. Want a quality handmade soy candle in a certain scent? Want a certain type, size, color? No problem. Want a particular scent in a beautiful reed diffuser? Want a custom Tree of Life pendant? Sure. Feel free to ask. I'm all about options.

I have around 183 different scents available, 158 are compatible with reed diffusers. I'm working on providing more information on the available scents. They're all listed in item descriptions that are customizable but you might have to scroll down to see it. I use pthalate-free and DPG-free scent oils and I can provide a MSDS sheet upon request.
There's alot to choose from so if you can't decide, I also offer 5 sample sticks for $1.25 with free shipping. Look through the "Customizable & Pick A Scent" section in my shop to see available options.
