    September 16, 2016: Why a Gift with Natural Soap?

    Why a gift with natural soap? Well for starters, you’re actually giving them… REAL soap. If they’ve never tried it… you’ll be the one who changed their life. If they already use natural soaps, you’ll still be the hero who gave them a gift they’ll actually use! Win, win.
      Most of the commercial soaps in many stores are full of harsh detergents and chemicals. Take a closer look and you’ll realize that the label doesn’t say “soap” because by law they can’t use that term. So they call it a “moisturizing bar”.
    The real soaps in our gifts are made using the cold process method which preserves the richness of the natural ingredients. They start with rich food grade olive oil. Coconut and castor oils are added for luxurious lather and moisture… and palm oil for longevity. Then scents are added using 100% pure essential oils extracted from plants. All natural, real soap.
    So aside from your cousin who hates to shower, who wouldn’t love a gift with natural soap?

    September 8, 2016: The Facts on Biodegradable Products

    We were so excited when we found biodegradable cellophane bags to use for our bath salt samples. But what exactly does biodegradable mean and does it make a big difference?
    Simply put, it means being able to be broken down by natural processes into more basic components. Products are usually broken down by bacteria, fungi or other simple organisms. By this definition, most things are biodegradable. The difference is the amount of time it takes to break down. A piece of an apple will break down rather quickly but a piece of plastic will take decades and beyond.
    Here’s the thing…. how long it takes to breakdown is less important than what it breaks down into! In a perfect world, all products would break down to only carbon dioxide and water. In reality, a product may be biodegradable but not environmentally friendly if it contains hazardous chemicals that are still toxic after they biodegrade.
    So don’t just read the “biodegradable” label and be satisfied that it’s good for the environment. Read the full list of ingredients. Also remember that products made with natural ingredients are more likely to be safer and easier to degrade.
