The Power of Fragrance

June 26, 2017

I​sn't it funny how a certain fragrance can bring back a lifetime of memories? I remember what it smelled like when my grandmother would bake, she has long since passed, but every time I step into an Amish kitchen it reminds me of her. No, she wasn't Amish, but the smell of fresh baked breads, donuts, and cakes that lined her kitchen counters still linger in my mind. The smell of my old elementary school library and the hundreds of books it had, and how my imagination was set free. The smell of my children's hair when they were babies, that soft baby smell. All of those are memories created by a smell. My hope is to create fragrances that will be remembered for a lifetime, for years and years to come. I want you as my customer to be wrapped in quality and luxury. I want couples that are married to say, "I still remember her as she walked by, her perfume was alluring and captivated me." Or to be remembered by a specific place, as in a resort or spa that carries my product with their specific fragrance. I hope that even if I never become famous that my legacy and my fragrances still live on for many years and my recipes are a family heirloom passed on for generations to come. That's my thought of the day, and my inspirations for this company.  

The Melted Heart Collection

June 28, 2017

This is a signature scent created by me. Have you ever just met someone or had a person in your life everyday that just melts your heart. They have this kind and loving way about them that makes you smile, makes the day seem a little better. It doesn't matter who it is, a family member, a spouse, a significant other, a child, or simply a friend. What a better way to let them know that they melt you than to give them a unique gift that lets them know that.

Interesting Read: What are you using on a daily basis?

July 11, 2017

We recently did a study of some items that we use on a daily basis and here is what we have discovered:

**NAME BRAND SOAP -labeled as ultra-moisturizing with shea butter.

This soap contained the following ingredients:

  1. Sodium Lauroyl Isethiomate
  2. Paraffin
  3. Glycerin
  4. Water
  5. Talc
  6. Sodium Cococlyceryl Ether Sulfonate

  18. Tetrasodium-EDTA
  19. Etidronic Acid
  20. Butyrospermum Parki (Shea Butter)
Please consider our ingredients are all organic, all natural, therapeutic grade essential oils.

We also took a look at a daily retinol cream. It listed active ingredients as follows:

  1. Avobenzone 2%
  2. Homosalate 3%
  3. Octinoxate 7.5%
  4. Oxybensone 5%

We also took a look at a store brand of aloe vera gel:

  2. Propylene Glycol
  3. Glycerin
  4. Polyprobate 20

  11. Yellow #5
In Sager's Busy Girl Luxuries "After Sun Blend"

Organic Aloe Vera, Therapeutic grade Lavender and Eucalyptus


We were not aware of what some of these ingredients really were so we did a little research, which you can also do in today's internet world: (please keep in mind we are only listing a few of our findings).

What is SD Alcohol40B?

*This is a mixture of ethanol with a denaturing agent. Potential risks from ethanol in personal care products are significantly smaller than the health risk posed by consumption of alcohol. (*EWG Skin Deep Cosmetics Database)

What is Propylene Glycol?

**You can find this in industrial-grade levels in products like antifreeze, polyurethane, cushions, paints and the like. In food levels are considered pharmaceutical grade. The FDA has deemed propylene glycole as "generally recognized as safe."


**PROPOLYNE GLYCOL INCREASES YOUR SKINS PROPENSITY TO ABSORB WHATEVER IT COMES IN CONTACT WITH.


Please remember your skin is a gateway into your internal body and it absorbs whatever you put on.

Jacob's Roses

July 13, 2017

Everyone knows that the Rose is a symbol of many things, love, passion, beauty, romance and the like. However, there is a special meaning of them for me, my grandfather Jacob had the most beautiful roses I have ever seen. He has long sense passed over 24 years ago, but his gifts still remain in my memory. He was not only a talented carpenter, farmer, veterinarian, musician, but he truly had a "green thumb". His roses were so red, which by the way was his favorite color, and rose was his favorite scent. My mother told me when I was making this in his honor that he actually used a rose lotion that was in a pink bottle. We kind of laughed at him a little. But as a little girl, I remember sitting on his front porch on his farm, he would be playing the violin and the roses were fragrant and in full bloom. I miss him and think of him often, he always called me "the baby". and before he passed away he said, "tell the baby I love her." So this signature soap was made in his honor, because I loved him so much and miss him daily.

I Love Bubble Gum Collection

July 16, 2017

This collection is made in honor of my son's Chase and Silas, and other children out there that enjoy a piece of bubble gum every now and again. Most children don't really like our fragrance choices, I often get that, "ewww Mommy, that stinks", when using a product that most adults find appealing. However, I believe that adults and children alike can appreciate the sweet fragrance of bubble gum. As adults it brings back a nostalgia, for children it smells delightful and no more "ewwws".  Also this product is 100% organic Double Butter and Aloe bases and our perfume oils are 100% theraputic grade.

Introducing the Bye-Bye Collection

August 4, 2017

This is a collection of 100% therapeutic grade essential oils and 100% organic carrier oils designed with a child's spirit. These are for the annoying things that we just want to "go away", in other words "bye-bye". Our Bye-bye germs collection is a travel disinfectant that doesn't contain harsh chemicals that are typically found in normal disinfectants. The Bye-bye burn is an after-sun oil that not only removes the stinging of the sunburn, but it soothes and moisturizes the skin. Bye-bye bugs keeps those pests away from biting you. Bye-bye itchy toes is an anti-fungal spray to keep fungus from living on the surface of the inside of your shoes and infecting your toes, also can be used on a shower floor surface or shower shoes. We do not recommend the spray to be used on the actual feet, also none of our products are intended to replace medical advice or treatment.

Back to School & Fall Time Memories

August 18, 2017

It's back to school time for some of you, both parents and children a like, and for some it is a first time experience. For my self, my oldest son will be starting kindergarten, which is unbelievable. Where does time go? Along with back to school comes Fall, which happens to be one of my favorite times of year. The cool Autumn air, the leaves changing from green to bright shades of orange, red, and yellow. The time when everything turns into pumpkin spice, hay rides, pumpkin patches, and bonfires. Of course the children are excited for trick-or-treat or fall festivals. Not to mention the excitement for football season. A big tradition in our family is our pumpkins, each of us get a pumpkin and we spend the afternoon decorating outside and carving our pumpkins. Last year, my mother who is also my best friend brought us over homemade hot cocoa when she came to check out our pumpkins. We are excited because this year we planted our own pumpkins, we do have some that are growing and we are looking forward to how they continue to grow. I am a big advocate for making memories, so please enjoy your fall and make beautiful memories with your families, no matter how big or small they may seem. They will remember and cherish them forever.

Our newest product for children

August 31, 2017

As a parent, it's so hard when our children are afraid of things like monsters, or when they have bad dreams. We want nothing more than for them to be happy and sleep soundly and only have the best dreams. My youngest son is afraid of monsters so this is sort of inspired by him. As a girl I had the same fears, I remember my mother stroking my hair at night, telling me to close my eyes, and painting a picture in my mind. I have come  to find as a mother my self that it helps when children feel a soothing touch, and a soft voice, and has someone to paint a vivid picture of something beautiful that may be unrealistic or fantasy. The world is so full of negative, it's okay to paint a fantasy picture for them to fall asleep too. It also promotes bonding. I enclosed a story with the product to help get you started, afterwards, feel free to paint your own magical and whimsical stories.

A meaningful addition to our business

September 18, 2017

We have added an art gallery to our page as many of you may have or have not seen. Some of these paintings are created for fun, some have a deep meaning to the artist. They are for sale, but they are unique because no artist has the same hand. As the owner I believe that there are many ways to soothe the soul, through fragrant soaps and oils, to a beautiful unique painting. Whether you create it your self or someone else creates it. As an artist of many things, I find it as a release, a productive way to express raw emotion and feeling and place it somewhere that can create joy for others or even myself. I am kind of guilty of indulging in my products. If anyone should be interested in any of the paintings on display in our gallery, please reach out via email. Our prices are negotiable and if you are not satisfied with the paintings upon receiving as always you will receive a full refund as long as the product is not damaged. 

Special Facial Instructions

November 13, 2017

For the most benefit from our products we recommend following this regime: weekly french green clay mask, using our lavender facial bar twice daily, along with our facial toner, hydrating facial mist, and special blend oil. This is great for all skin types. Here are the directions that recommend :  1. Mix the french green clay with yogurt to the consistency you desire, set aside. 2. Place a warm wash cloth in warm water, you may use an essential oil for fragrance if you like, I recommend lavender as this routine is usually done prior to bed. Squeeze excess water from the washcloth, then cover face until  the cloth cools. This allows the pores to open and promotes better absorption of key nutrients. 3. Apply french green clay mask to face & neck , as thin or as thick as you like avoiding eye area. Allow to penetrate skin 20 - 30 min. 4. Place washcloth in warm water and squeeze out the excess, place over face until it begins to cool then use to wipe face & neck clean. 5. Use hydrating facial mist, allow to absorb. 6. Apply special facial blend oil to face and neck. 

Daily & nightly regime: Wash face with lavender facial bar, then gently cleanse with toner, then apply hydrating facial mist, follow with special facial blend oil.

New Year, New Products

January 21, 2018

It's a new year so that means new products! I am glad to say so far this year has been productive, I have created some new products. One of my new products is the lotion bar, yes, I said a lotion bar.  It is actually better than a lotion because it is made strictly with natural butters and oils. In my lotion bars you will find all natural 100% organic mango butter, cocoa butter, or shea butter. Also 100% pure unrefined coconut oil, and 100% organic beeswax. Most lotions are 80-90 % water and evaporate off the skin, oils and butters absorb into the skin. People often say, "won't it make my skin oily or make me get pimples?". The answer is no. Oils when used properly are great moisturizers and actually fight acne. The key is in the rubbing, you have to rub the oil into the skin to avoid that oily feeling, unlike most lotions a few swipes and you're done, well that's because most of it evaporated. These lotion bars are truly amazing, and perfect for people who wash their hands frequently, and for those of us who suffer from dry skin or eczema. That being said I encourage you to try the lotion bar, no more tubes or bottles, no more scraping the  bottom of the container, just 100% pure moisture delivered to your thirsty skin.
