Updates Related to COVID-19
As you have heard, social distancing, and soap are two of the best defenses we have right now against COVID-19. We will continue to fill orders while supplies last, and will do so as long as conventional shipping is available.
We are also turning on pre-ordering so that you will get your orders on a first come first serve basis.
You may not be aware that it takes 4 weeks for cold process soap to cure. We are ramping up production and will focus on a few varieties that do not require special ingredients that may not currently be available.
Please bear with us while we focus our production and delivery on the current crisis. We will make every attempt to keep the inventory current and contact you if any shortages occur.
You will have the option of substituting for a different product, waiting until it becomes available or receiving a refund. We also anticipate that shipping may be delayed and we have no control over that.
Please stay safe and take care of your family during this trying time.

27 Essential Oils to Purify Air Naturally, From the Aura Cacia Cayenne Room, By Tom Havran
We spend a lot of time indoors during the winter months.

Think of all that exhaled air you’re re-breathing – the need to purify, cleanse and refresh the atmosphere around you becomes critical. Fortunately, you can do so easily with essential oils. read more

Feed Your Skin
Tamera Schroeder, November 2012
In an effort to feed my family's skin (especially my toddlers) I've been searching for a replacement for chemical laden skin products as they run out. My youngest child (15 months) has eczema and can react to almost anything that touches his skin. We have gone through a variety of baby washes and lotions available at the big box stores with less than satisfactory results.
Even with products advertised as being gentle, he would break out with a sandpapery rash all over his stomach and I was applying hydrocortisone cream to keep him from scratching his skin until it bled. I asked friends for suggestions and was directed to an article about the benefits of coconut oil when applied topically.
