Take A Peek

I've been very hard at work...creating very specialized soaps with awesome ingredients.  I am proud of all of these.  Not all of them are available yet, just thought I'd give you a peek into what I've been doing lately.

Happy gazing.....

additives:  shea butter, adzuki bean, activated bamboo powder, bamboo extract, green tea extract and white kaolin clay.  Scent includes a blend of essential oils: Anise, lavender, grapefruit, tea tree, petitgrain, eucalyptus, and clove.  Bamboo charcoal is naturally detoxifying. 
Milken Oats
additives:  shea and cocoa butter, black walnut hulls, wild yam, stinging nettles and white clay with ground oats.  Scent:This is not your typical Oatmeal, Milk and Honey, however, this actually smells like oats and milk, ever so slightly sweetened with the smell of coconut and amber.  
THIS is what milk and oats smell like (milkn'oats=Milken Oats)  :)

Palm Beach Illustrated 60th
Palm Beach Illustrated Magazine approached us and asked us to create a soap for their 60th Anniversary...so we made a tropical treat that illustrates Palm Beach County, using locally collected ocean water and an abundance of tropical additives.  {My beach scene with shells}

additives: Atlantic Ocean water taken from Palm Beach, coconut milk, banana and mango fruit extract and topped with pink Himalayan Salt.
Scent:  Tropics at its finest.  Fresh cantaloupe and honeydew with notes of beach daisy, a dollup of coconut cream and beach-side trumpet lilies.
additives:  shea butter, bentonite clay, orange, sandalwood and tea tree essential oils.

The Sea Bar
Contains natural elements from around the world. This soap is made with pure locally collected Atlantic Ocean water, Pacific Ocean sea salt, Dead Sea Mud from Israel, Irish Moss powder and Atlantic kelp. Dead Sea mud, Kelp and Irish Moss are packed with vitamins and minerals.  Between them, they deliver Vitamins A, B, C, and D, iodine, magnesium, calcium and sodium, which help encourage collagen production, restore moisture levels, firm, revitalize and detoxify.   The scent is a handmade blend of Balsam of Peru, Virginia cedarwood, sandalwood, orange and cocoa absolute in the center.
Very warm and woodsy, with citrus pushing through and the scent of cocoa absolute.  A very unique blend of essential oils  - One of my personal favorites.

Hope you enjoyed the peek.  The Sea Bar, Orangewood and Palm Beach Illustrated are all on the site, but before we could even offer you the Detox, we were sold out by one of our newest wholeslae customer, Lebobo in the Historic Northwood Village in West Palm Beach.  If you're local, and want to smell it in person, THAT is where the Detox went.  It's also the only retailer at the moment carrying Palm Beach Illustrated Coconut Milk Soap.

I will keep you posted!

Because You're No Angel

 Mae West would have worn Cathexis

Scent Description:  Fresh roses and melted chocolate muddled in a cedar cup with the blackest of teas.
Just in time for Valentine's Day, Cathexis is back, slightly tweaked and subtly improved from last year.  Perfect for the Mae West in any woman, Cathexis could have come right off the set of her film, "I'm No Angel," a story about "a gal who lost her reputation - and never missed it."

offered through February


Signature Mae West lines we like:

* Come up and see me sometime.
* Beulah, peel me a grape.
* When I'm good I'm very good. But when I'm bad I'm better. 

ALSO!!  Hawaiian Sandalwood Salt Soap is ready!
