Organic Tea Tree Face Soap

My new soap is a face soap that has tea tree essential oil and charcoal. I also added colloidal oatmeal which helps with dry, itchy skin. The charcoal pulls the dirt and oil out of the skin and the tea tree can help with acne to psoriasis. I also added olive leaf powder which adds a very gentle exfoliant.

Ingredients: olive oil, coconut oil, tea tree essential oil, colloidal oatmeal, olive leaf powder, charcoal, sodium hydroxide, water

Order on Etsy! Batch will be ready January 30, 2016!

Anise Loofah Cold Process Soap

I received a custom order for an Anise loofah soap. I just bought a new loaf mold that fits about 16oz which is the equivalent to four bars of soap. With this order I cut the loaf in half so each bar is about 8oz with a loofah sponge embedded!

Ingredients: olive oil, coconut oil, loofah sponge, anise essential oil, sodium hydroxide, water

Biodegradable Packaging and Soap!

One day I woke up and decided since I shower everyday I would like to shower with products that do not harm the environment. At that moment I decided to make my own soap from all natural biodegradable ingredients. I then decided to sell my soap and what better way to sell it than using biodegradable tree free paper and Biodegradable homemade glue.

Glue Recipe: http://ecochildsplay.com/2009/02/26/homemade-glue-for-kids-crafts/

Paper: http://www.ecopaper.com

Having a product that does not harm the environment should have packaging that aims to not do so as well.  I bought my paper from a business called Eco Paper where they make tree free biodegradable paper from post consumer paper and agro industrial waste. Here are some bullet points that I gathered from http://www.ecopaper.com to best describe what their paper is made of:

Tree Free Products: Products made from agricultural residue or agricultural fibers, not from Trees.

Agricultural waste: it is not an intentional crop, it is the waste from an existing land use, it is an excellent alternative since it is reducing the impact on the environment.

Pre-consumer waste: commonly used in manufacturing industries, and is often not considered recycling in the traditional sense.


Post-Consumer Material (PCW) Waste paper that has served its intended purpose and has been separated from solid waste to be recycled into new paper. This is what you and I take to the recycling center.

Recycled Paper: EPA does not defined this term. According to the Federal Trade Commission’s (FTC) Guides for Environmental Marketing Claims, a paper can be called “recycled” only if it contains 100 percent postconsumer recovered fiber. If the post consumer content is less than 100 percent, the paper should be called “recycled-content” paper.

Virgin Fiber/Paper: Refers to cellulose fiber derived directly from trees that have just been cut down.

Process(ed) Chlorine Free (PCF) Applies to post-consumer recycled content only as it means that no chorine (or compounds) were used “this time around” but there may be traces of chlorine present because of earlier processes which where not in our own process to make sustainable papers.

Totally chlorine free (TCF): No chlorine or chlorine derivatives used to make the paper.
