Love this product so much that I got for a gift for my sister-in-law. She loved it too!

Perfectly creamy lip balm I buy over and over. I do feel the amount of essential oil is a bit much, I seem to be getting more sensitive to the scent and feel of all those oils. Thank goodness for your naked version!
Mirasol Farm Organics
Since my first batch of soap on a whim 13 years ago, my love of plants has blended with my inner mad chemist and I’ve become fascinated with the therapeutic and aesthetic benefits of herbs and essential oils. Their properties are dynamic and complex, and their combinations endless. Even today, making soap feels like alchemy, creating something useful and even beautiful out of oils and lye.
Mirasol Farm is a place—our home and organic farm—as well as our business name. Mirasol Farm is the manifestation of our dream of small-scale sustainable agriculture, located on a retired dairy farm in western Wisconsin that we share with about 30 chickens and a variety of rescued dogs and cats.
We’re organic farmers so we also purchase organic ingredients whenever possible. All of us express our values through our purchases, so I thought I’d say a little about why we “vote” this way with ours. Nearly all of the ingredients that we don’t grow ourselves come from far away. Consider your own favorite skin care ingredients. Cocoa butter, shea butter, olive oil, rosehip seed oil… grown by farmers in the Ivory Coast, Burkina Faso, Spain, the Andes... When you choose organic products, you support agricultural practices that don't use synthetic pesticides, chemical fertilizers or genetically engineered ingredients. Every organic purchase is a vote for the future of honeybees, rivers and lakes, and the human family. It's the shout heard 'round the world!

I love Casey. I've been a city person all my life. Never thought I'd end up on a farm but I find endless thrills in growing things that we can eat or turn into great jams or soap. I'm constantly amazed at what we can do together.
Accepted payment methods
- Accepts Etsy gift cards
Wisconsin residents will be charged 5.5% sales tax, calculated automatically at checkout by Etsy.
The shipping rates assigned are brilliantly calculated by Etsy's real-time algorithm and we've found them to be impressively accurate. We do not charge handling fees and are careful to always reimburse shipping fees overpaid by $2 or more.
We also will gladly include a gift note with any purchase. Simply leave details in the notes at checkout time.
Please let us know right away if your order hasn't arrived in a reasonable time frame - we'll either help you track it down (if it was sent Priority Mail) or send a replacement package.
We happily ship everywhere! Packages under 4 lbs. ship first class international and packages over that weight must go Priority Mail, which gets a little more expensive.
Here's a two-part strategy for buying things from the U.S.:
* Stay under 4 pounds in your package weight (2 lotion refills and 3 body sprays, 2 lotions and 5 soaps, e.g.) OR
* Go nuts, way over 4 pounds and fill up a medium flat-rate Priority Mail box, as it will jump up in cost to ship but again, it's flat rate.
Any questions, get in touch.
Please note that international buyers are responsible for any duties and customs charges that may be incurred.
Refunds and Exchanges
We will happily refund the purchase price of (or replace, whichever is appropriate) any product that is found to be defective in any way. Please let us know right away if you have any concerns at all about your order. We'll do our very best to resolve the matter promptly.
Due to the personal nature of bath and body products, we're sorry that we cannot exchange items.
Additional policies and FAQs
Bath and body products are not yet actively regulated for organic labeling! This gap leaves room for much spirited debate and interpretation among artisans and crafters. So for now, consumers have to look closely at ingredients and make buying choices in alignment with their own philosophies and interests.
Here's our approach to organic bath and body labeling: we adhere to the USDA guidelines which specify that products containing over 95% organic ingredients may be labeled as organic without qualification. We use ONLY organic and sustainably harvested oils and botanicals, but do not use organic essential oils yet due to their cost. (We're working on it!) The other crucial ingredient - sodium hydroxide, or lye - simply transforms the organic oils into soap, and since neither love nor money can source organic lye, we do not count it in our 95% calculations.
Feel free to let us know if you have any questions about our ingredients or organic labeling!
