Today I am working on products for the Pike Road Craft Show coming up in November. I have unscented soap ready to slice and I am currently making Magnolia lotion. I am out of both at the market. I hope I can get the Magnolia Soap made today also. I’ll keep you posted on progress.

washing-handsTo help fight diseases, doctors advise frequent hand washing. Dirty hands are often the avenues from which germs can get past the body’s defenses. One little act of touching your eyes, or eating with unwashed fingers can bring millions of harmful bacteria and viruses that can cause cough, colds, or worse.

That is why hands should always be washed, especially after touching commonly shared items like ATM machines, public phones or shopping carts. And while you may think that the soap you find in the store is sufficient, the chemicals and additives can dry your skin. It’s best to opt for a natural foaming hand soap, which will leave your hands squeaky clean and maintain their natural moisture.

body-wash-acneI have really sensitive skin and during the winter I am always looking for products that can provide me with some relief. Even though I apply moisturizing lotion every day I still suffer from itchy and dry skin. Recently I read somewhere that traditional soap was rife with harmful chemicals that can dry out your skin.

I bought some homemade body wash that was only made with natural ingredients, and it really seemed to work. I used it in the shower and immediately afterword I noticed my skin felt soft and smooth. After a few days of using it the patches of dry, red skin had disappeared. I also enjoy taking baths, so I think I will try some natural bath oil next.

Dry skin interferes with daily life in many overt ways. For example, no one likes to watch another person scratching their unsightly patches of dry skin. Scratching might relieve the irritation briefly, but it’s a short-lived solution at best. By stowing a bottle of skin lotion in a desk drawer at work, you can keep your skin healthy and comfortable all day long.

Shea butter’s natural moisturizing properties make it a sensible solution for dry skin. In fact, shea butter lotion does more than just resolve the cosmetic signs of skin irritation. A healthy dollop of lotion works to lessen the impact of eczema, acne scarring, and even burns. Dry skin is a common problem, and sufferers swear by shea butter to provide the relief they need.

Hand & Body Cream

 Shea Butter is only found in the tropics of Africa.  It is extracted by hand from the nuts of the Karite tree.  The Karite tree which means “Tree of Life” begins to bear fruit after about 15 years; and can take up to 30 years to bear a quality crop of nuts.

 It is the high content of irremovable fatty acid that gives Shea Butter its unique healing properties.  Shea Butter nourishes the skin with Vitamins A, E and F.  Vitamins A and E help maintain the skin and keep it clear and healthy.  Vitamin F acts as a skin protector and rejuvenator.  The all-natural moisturizing properties of Shea Butter make it a valuable addition to hand creams and soaps.
