About Us


Who are we? We are a female run, veteran owned, local, small shop. 
I'm often asked, 'How did the store come about?'  I wish I had a fancy or elaborate story to tell you, but it's pretty basic.  My first product, the body scrub, was born out of happen chance.  In an attempt for healthy lifestyle changes, I purchased coconut oil for cooking. Not knowing the low flashpoint of the oil, I set a pan on fire one night! Fortunately, it didn't burn the house down (it was a good size fire), but it scared me and my eldest son, who made me PROMISE to never cook with coconut oil again.  Well, what's a frugal girl to do with a huge jar of oil?  I made a body scrub, shared it, people liked it and it kept getting bigger.  I quickly branched out to body butters and everything sort of blossomed from there...
I'm a provider in Pediatrics and am frequently asked for recommendations on skin care products for the little guys.  Dry skin and eczema, are huge problems in the kiddo population. Sure, I had my list of recommendations, but it wasn't until I started making products myself, that I began to really do my research...
What's in it??  Chemicals, Petroleum, added water, fillers, alcohols, cancer causing synthetics! Everything that is bad for your healthy, natural skin!  It doesn't make sense. It's counterintuitive. For example, Mineral Oil...sounds healthy right? Did you know that it is made from Petrol? That's right.  They extract the expensive portion and put it into our cars, the leftovers are put into cosmetics and get this....makes baby oil!! Seriously...
We feel that we have healthy, natural, skin loving, great alternatives to commercialized and chemical products.  We hope you will feel the same and will give us a try. 
Thanks for reading and Best regards,
