Frequently Asked Questions
"Why did my body butter liquify? And if it does..then what?"
Yes, your body butter can change from solid to liquid. To avoid this, place it in a cool area. Although it might appear different, it is not ruined and is still usable. If it becomes too cold and lumpy looking, mix it with a hand mixture to "fluff" it back up.
"What is the difference between infused oil and essential oils?"
Essential oils are highly concentrated, while infused oils are much more mild. Both are of value since vital parts of the plant is being removed for our benefit.
"Why goat milk soap?"
Goat milk has many benefits for the skin. It contains over fifty essential nutrients, like vitamins A, B1, B6, B12, C and E, minerals, citric acid, amino acids, unsaturated fatty acids, natural enzymes, and a variety of other nutrients that nourish and revitalize dehydrated skin. Vitamin A slows down the aging of our skin, helps prevent brown spots and the thickening of skin. While Zinc contributes to the reconstruction of collagen fibers, encouraging moisture retention and assisting in maintaining your skin’s elasticity.
"Are your products all-natural?"
We consider our soaps to be natural. We use food-quality ingredients in our soaps and do not add any chemicals or fragrances to create any extra properties in the soap. We source from companies that are trusted and tested as pure and considered natural by governing authorities. In fact, some of the ingredients are grown and raised and then harvested by our family.
"What do I do if a product produces a reaction?"
Rinse thoroughly with water. If lotion produces a reaction, wash off with soap. Applying a cool, wet compress may also help soothe itching and irritation, if this occurs. Stop using product if reaction continues.
"Are your products gluten-free?"
Yes. We source from gluten, organic, glyphosate-free and GMO-free companies.
"Do you raise your own bees?"
Yes. We separate the unpasteurized honey and wax from our personal beehives to use in our products.
"Why use unpasteurized honey and beeswax in products?"
We do not pasteurize our honey due to the phytonutrients in honey, which are responsible for its antioxidant properties, as well as its antibacterial and antifungal power. Heavy processing of honey destroys these valuable nutrients.
Additionally, honey is nature's ultimate beauty product. Throughout the centuries, beautiful women have used honey as part of their skin and hair care treatments. Cleopatra was famous for her milk and honey baths, and Poppea, the wife of Roman Emperor Nero, used a honey and milk lotion on her face to keep her looking youthful.
The acids in honey have been known to help one’s skin look youthful. Numerous studies have proven its effectiveness in fighting infection, promoting new skin growth and even lessening scarring. It is used in many hospitals to treat burns. Honey derives its antibacterial effects from natural hydrogen peroxide, produced by an enzyme naturally
present in honey.
Furthermore, honey never spoils due to a very high potassium content, which makes it difficult for bacteria to survive. Honey hydrates, moisturizes, soothes, softens and gives soap a lovely tan color and a sweet scent. Honey, one of the best-known humectants, traps, and seals in moisture, leaving skin soft and supple. We use natural raw honey so it still
contains bits of pollen, honeycomb, and healing propolis -- all the natural goodness the bees put in.
Unrefined organic beeswax forms a lovely, light barrier on your skin that prevents loss of moisture and helps seal in moisturizing oils and butters, without clogging pores.

Cane sugar also provides gentle abrasion to help prevent acne, blackheads, whiteheads, breakouts and skin blemishes. Brown sugar naturally exfoliates and removes dead cells which promotes healthy skin cleansing, increased circulation and helps buff lackluster skin to a healthy, polished glow. Brown sugar helps clean pores, removes impurities and also has anti-bacterial properties that can help prevent acne and pimples. Turbinado sugar is an excellent addition to body scrubs. The crystals, coarser than those of refined sugar, help exfoliate dead skin cells without the damage that can result from heavy salts or pulverized nut shells or fruit pits, which can have sharp edges. The raw Turbinado
sugar also adds the vitamins and minerals present in natural sugar cane juice, such as calcium, magnesium, potassium, and iron.
