Why natural handcrafted soap?
Hey guys, Marla here!
Over the past few years, I've become very passionate about holistic health and all that this beautiful earth has to offer. I guess you could say I'm a big "DIY-er" and love to create things using plant based ingredients that are not only beneficial for our bodies, but that also protect our animal friends and support the health of our planet! So, I decided to turn this ever growing passion into a business so I can share these beautiful creations with the world :)
I became a licensed esthetician and learned all about skin health. I had a lot of skin problems, mainly acne and dryness, so I decided to educate myself on how to heal. Along with proper nutrition (most important!), what we put on our skin is crucial for our internal health.
So why natural soap?
You've definitely heard the term "you are what you eat" which is so true! But what about what we put on our skin? Our skin is an amazing organ, and whatever we put on it is readily absorbed into the bloodstream. Sadly, most store bought conventional beauty care products are LOADED with all sorts of icky TOXIC chemicals. These chemicals build up in our bodies and over time and have now been linked to all sorts of health ailments including cancer, endocrine disruption, and a myriad of skin problems.
. We take huge pride in the fact that every ingredient we use to scent, color, and even preserve our products are organic, wholesome, and natural botanicals from the earth. This is how skincare should be!
Here's why natural organic soap is a must!!
SKIN HEALTH: natural soap is loaded with moisturizing oils and butters (ours is vegan- always!) that are wonderful for cleansing the skin but not stripping it of it's natural oils which are necessary to avoid dryness! Essential oils are like liquid gold when it comes to almost ANY ailment, and when used on our skin they are wonderful for aromatherapy, stress, scars, and so much more.
OVERALL HEALTH: Our overall health depends on more than just nutrition. Of course nutrition is crucial (plant based nutrition info coming soon!), but we must also consider the chemicals we are using on our skin, in our homes, what we inhale, the energy we are around, our sleep quality, and much more. our natural soap contains no questionable ingredients.
ENVIRONMENTAL HEALTH: bar soap is non toxic so it reduces the toxic buildup in waterways and streams. It is also naturally more eco-friendly because of the minimal packaging needed as opposed to liquid soap in plastic bottles. The packaging we use to wrap our bars is all recycled, eco-friendly, and encourages sustainability.
SMALL BUSINESS SUPPORT: By purchasing handmade soap and other handmade items you are supporting an independent small business which encourages entrepreneurship, helps support local communities, encourages creativity, art, and traditional methods of making items. You are receiving a truly "one of a kind", made with love item.....and that is something truly special!
If you're eager to try out my handmade soap, head over to the SHOP page to check out the beauties I have available :)
In the future, I'll be providing more information about specific ingredients to avoid and the harms that come along with them. Education is power baby!
I'm so happy you are here with me, come back for more great things like this!
Peace and Love,

I purchased the Lavender Calendula Facial Serum and I absolutely love it! The love and care she puts into her product and packaging is so refreshing! Her knowledge of the uses of flowers and plants that we live among is also refreshing. I have learned so much from her.
