First a curiosity, then a hobby and now my passion and purpose!
Deep Leaf Organics was born out of my desire to provide women with healthful skin care, bath and aromatherapy products using the essence and power of plants to promote health, beauty and well-being.
HOW DID I BEGIN THIS VENTURE?
Sometimes you never know when a small glimpse at something can spark a new interest and then blossom into a new journey.
This is what occurred when my eyes first met artisan soaps.
I loved the creativity and decided to give soap making a try. In the summer of 2011 I purchased a soap making kit and made my first cold process soap. I was so amazed with the soap making process that I soon began ordering ingredients to make more soap. My creations were growing and being enjoyed by family and friends while my love for this hobby was taking a deeper root.
THERE'S MORE TO THIS THAN MAKING SOAP
In the midst of trying to develop my own recipes I began researching various ingredients. My eyes were opened to see that there was a way to use nature to nourish our skin, body and mind. I realized that there was more to this than just making soap.
I quickly transitioned from using synthetic fragrances and colorants to using essential oils, botanicals and clays. This change resonated with my soul so I began experimenting with making other natural body care. I continued my pursuit to use ingredients from nature and began researching their quality and efficacy.
ALL SHEA BUTTER IS NOT SHEA BUTTER
Obtaining ingredients in a virgin, unrefined and minimally processed state helps to ensure that vital nutrients and natural healing properties remain verses being stripped away by high refining, over heating and altering processes.
When purchasing a product with let's say shea butter, don't you want the full effects of what shea butter has to offer?
This is why I believe many are disappointed with the results of products that list these types of ingredients yet you may not experience full results.
Maybe the ingredients used are highly refined. These types of ingredients can go through harmful methods and high heat that can compromise natural nutrients which can make them less effective.
TAKING IT FURTHER
Ingredients that have not been genetically modified (GMO-free) and organically grown provide us with the most healthy, safe and earth friendly ingredients. When buying these ingredients I know that I am making the right choice for you, for my conscious and for the world we live in.
WHY ESSENTIAL OILS?
Sweet, herbaceous, floral, woody and spicy are some ways to describe essential oil aromas. But wait! Essential oils are not just lovely aromas.
In March 2014 I enrolled in a course to explore the world of essential oils. I chose a course approved by NAHA (National Association of Holistic Aromatherapy) to ensure I was receiving the best education, and later that year I became a Professional Certified Aromatherapist.
Even though I began using essential oils for natural scent, I now use them for their real therapeutic benefits and their beautiful aromatics. Unlike synthetic fragrances, which are mostly made of hundreds of trade secret man-made chemicals, their purpose is all about scent while many try to mimic real plant aromas. Essential oils provide natural benefits to our skin, body, and mind like balancing our mood, rejuvenating and nourishing our skin, providing calmness, enhancing focus, and even providing cooling and refreshing sensations.
This comes from their chemical constituents...authentic chemistry made by the hands of nature.
MY PRODUCTS ARE NOT JUST ABOUT SCENT
I make my products based on essential oil chemistry and what these oils will do for you. Understanding their properties gave me insight and a new respect for these life changing oils. This once hobby soap maker is now a professionally certified aromatherapist and desiring others to experience their amazing benefits.
WHAT'S AROMATHERAPY ANYWAY?
Aromatherapy is the skilled and controlled use of natural aromatic essences from plants, aka essential oils, for inhalation and topical application to balance, restore and promote health, beauty and well-being.
Essential oils are found inside microscopic glands on various plant parts including leaves, seeds, flowers, and wood. These glands contain the essential oil and it's this aromatic oil that gives a plant its scent. Many chemical components make up essential oils and provide them with their fighting, healing and rejuvenating powers.
As a Professional Certified Aromatherapist I use my expertise in the use of essential oils to create each product.
PURITY TESTED ESSENTIAL OILS
I use GC/MS purity tested essential oils to ensure authenticity. This provides more confidence that the oils used in my skin care, bath and aromatherapy products are the real deal. Unfortunately, unethical adulteration practices of essential oils are widespread today and a growing concern.
EACH INGREDIENT HAS A PURPOSE
Combining my skilled use of essential oils and self-study of other plant and earth materials, I uniquely formulate and make every product. Each ingredient is chosen with intent and purpose whether to fight signs of aging, relax a busy mind or moisturize and restore dry or damaged skin.
WHAT'S IN THE NAME?
When deciding on a name for my business I knew that I wanted it to evoke nature yet reveal something about essential oils.
From microscopic glands where essential oils are found, to the extraordinary oil pressed from tiny seeds of a prickly pear cactus fruit, the true essence of plants comes from deep within their being.
Many species of plants have leaves that hold thousands of essential oil glands. These leaves are commonly steam distilled which is a process that removes these aromatic oils. Leaves are also essential for life. They provide shade and protection to plant life and all beings. They fall and cover the ground while helping the soil retain moisture, they decay and are used as food and fertilizer for new plant growth and they release oxygen into the air of which we breathe. Leaves nourish life.
My commitment to using exceptional ingredients for nutrient-rich, healthy, and earth conscious care for your whole body.
Deep Leaf Organics provides uniquely modern and beautifully crafted botanical body care that balances, restores, and promotes health, beauty, and well-being through the healing and power of plants from their deepest essence.

EXPERIENCES MAY DIFFER:
Everyone is different with their skin types and sense of aromas and may react differently to various ingredients and essential oils. Some people are much more sensitive then others, so if you experience any issues after using these natural products, please discontinue use.
1) Some ingredients including aloe have become hard to come by due to various supply and demand issues. If any of your favorite Deep Leaf Organics products become sold out, please know that I am doing what I can to obtain equal quality ingredients which may require using new suppliers and could delay restocking any sold out products.
2) Several types of cosmetic bottles are sold out and on backorder throughout the US. I've had to use different suppliers to try and restock some containers.

Frequently asked questions
HOW DO I STORE THESE PRODUCTS?
Many natural ingredients are heat and sunlight (UV) sensitive so store all products in a cool area away from direct sunlight.
Avoid leaving products in a hot car.
Store packaged soap in a cool, dry area. For longer lasting soap, allow it to dry out between uses. Place on a draining soap dish for best results and avoid leaving in standing water. If left in standing water, the bar will become mushy due to the high content of glycerin. Cold process soap contains glycerin which is a by-product of this soap making process. Glycerin is a humectant and will naturally attract and hold on to water. Glycerin is what makes my soaps luxurious.
When not stored properly, the quality, shelf life and efficacy of these natural products may be diminished.
HOW LONG DO THESE PRODUCTS LAST? DO THEY EXPIRE?
While some products may last up to 18 months or even two years, it is recommended to use them within one year.
The use of natural antioxidants, plant-based and ECOCERT preservatives are used in various products to help retain their freshness during this time.
However, some products may have a shelf life less than one year. These products will have a "Best By" date on the back of the product label for your reference.
My products are made in small batches and sometimes made fresh upon your order.
CAN MY CHILDREN USE THESE PRODUCTS?
Due to the sensitive nature of young children, I do not recommend using essential oil based products on them unless they are specifically made for their use. This mostly pertains to infants and children five years of age and younger. Aromatherapy specific products have more details noted in each listing.
I'M PREGNANT. IS IT SAFE FOR ME AND MY BABY TO USE PRODUCTS MADE WITH ESSENTIAL OILS?
Many of my products are safe to use if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.
While many essential oils are considered safe for pregnant and breastfeeding mothers, there are some that should be avoided completely.
Whether considering my products or others where essential oils apply, there are safety guidelines to consider and many are provided by NAHA (National Association of Holistic Aromatherapy). Copy and paste the link below for direct access to their pregnancy page.
Feel free to contact me with any questions and as always, consult with your caring physician if you have additional concerns or questions.
IF I HAVE ALLERGIES, CAN I USE THESE NATURAL PRODUCTS?
Before making a purchase, I recommend reading through the ingredient list provided for each product in the listing description.
If you are sensitive to nuts then shea butter and tamanu oil products should be avoided and any of those ingredients affecting nut allergies.
If an ingredient is new to you, feel free to contact me and I will be happy to help you with your selection.

My products are sold at a few select retailers in the Maryland area. They do not carry my full line of products but offer a smaller collection to choose from.
