Wooden Soap Dish – to keep your handmade soap dry.

Wooden Soap Dish

Wooden Soap Dish – to keep your handmade soap dry.

Handmade soaps need keeping dry so they last longer.  If they sit in water they will go soggy and will lose their shape and scent.  To preserve  your soap always keep them in a dish with holes or gaps.  I have 2 dishes, both made of bamboo, which are perfect for looking after your soaps.  They are both quite light in weight but the darker coloured one looks chunkier.

Another bonus of using wooden dishes is they will not damage porcelain hand basins / bowls if dropped into them!

Solid Shampoo Bar – handmade with natural vegan friendly ingredients.

Have you tried shampoo bars yet?  They are so versatile and do not contain any of the chemicals that many mass produced shampoos use.   The most frequently used chemical is SLS.  This is added to give the product a lather.  Now, we don’t need a huge lather to get clean, we just think we do lol!  My bars do lather up but you will not get a head full of bubbles like you do with SLS.  I use hair loving oils, butters and a variety of different essential oils which are good for the hair and scalp.

I have a variety of different scents available so there is lots of choice to please everyone in the family.  Click here to be taken to the shampoo page!!

Natural Lip Balms – Vegan and Lip Smacking Good!

Natural Lip Balm

Natural Lip Balms – I love lip balms, in fact I have one in most pockets or places I sit!  I have a peppermint one on the go in the soapery, a grapefruit in the living room and a lime one in the car!!!

I make them with candelilla wax which is very quickly absorbed into the skin. This means you aren’t left with a sticky feeling on your lips.  I also include shea butter, cocoa butter and calendula oil.  Calendula oil is an amazing oil as it aids recovery of cracked or chapped lips…check it out with Mr Google!!!
A wide range of different flavours/tastes are available and these can  be bought individually or in a pack of 3.

Dog Shampoo – Natural and Gentle

Dog Shampoo

Dog Shampoo – Natural and Gentle

Do dogs love handmade shampoo?? Well from customer reviews I would say yes!  As it is a natural products it is free from chemicals and preservatives.  This means it is kinder to their skin resulting in an itch free pup! I have included neem oil in the recipe, to help prevent fleas,  alongside coconut oil and shea butter which is great for their skin.  In addition I have added a small amount of rosemary and lavender essential oil.  This is a) to mask the smell of the neem oil and b) they are safe oils for dogs and act as a further natural barrier to help keep fleas at bay.

These bars are circular in shape to make washing your dog a bit easier.

As always, for external use only and please stop using it if any irritation occurs.

What do you use in your bathroom? 

Natural Bathroom Accessories

What do you use in your bathroom?

I use the shower/wash scrunchie which is the bottom right.  It is super soft and will last for aaaaages!! It can be washed at 30′ too.  I love the way it feels on my skin and the handy tag allows me to hang it up to dry in the shower.  I also use the bamboo soap saver bag, top left.  Well I did when I could go to the gym!! It is a great way of transporting soap or shampoo to a public shower.  It also allows me to keep it off the floor in the public showers….bit more hygienic!! The great thing about the bag is it can also be used as a wash bag/exfoliatior bag. This one is softer than the one on the right which gives a deeper exfoliation.
The sisal soap saver bag on the top right. I personally don’t use this on my body as I find it too harsh. However I do use it on my hands after the allotment as it gets rid of any ingrained dirt from working the land lol!!  Many of my customers however love a ‘good scrub’ with it.
The bottom left is a bamboo wash mitt. This is the softest of them all.  It is so gentle and often favoured by those with more mature skin.

If you would like more details take a look at the accessories section – Happy Bathing!!

Soap On The Go!! – Handmade Soap In A Tin.

These are really handy tins to hold soaps, shampoos or indeed both. They come in 3 different sizes and can be bought without soap, but then, why not have a piece inside so you can use it straight away. The smaller one is particularly good for carrying a piece of soap with you on your daily business. Sometimes you arrive at a ‘wash station’ and there is no soap…or you need to wash your hands at work and the soap dispenser has run out…. The medium one comes with a piece of soap and shampoo in. If you’d rather have a larger piece of soap in it instead simply message me.
