Announcement   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.

Unfortunately, I've had to suspend all sales of pillars and votives because of a shortage of the type of soy wax that is used for these candles. All container candles, tealights and clamshell tarts are still available. As soon as a suitable alternative can be found I'll bring them back.

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 infustions 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.

Don't forget to check for upcoming sales events found toward the bottom of my shop. You can also find these at http://www.etsy.com/local.

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. I think most girls do. 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 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 failed marriage I went back to school and studied to be a Systems Administrator. After around 20 years in Information Technology, I lost my job. I did everything that was expected of me, was told I did a great job and was a valued 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 life changing devastation more as a blessing in disguise. I began to get more into gardening, herbalism and natural remedies and learned how to make candles. Eventually, I researched and taught myself how to make soap. Ever since I was a kid I suffered from eczema and between this, having new grandbabies and my mother being diagnosed with cancer and having skin issues I wanted to make soap that was good for your skin and gentle. 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 seem to be gravitating more toward customization here lately 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 make things that I like, things that I hope others will like as well. I get inspiration anywhere and everywhere.
