Hello and welcome to Moonflower Essentials! My name is
Barbara, and I discovered my potential in artisanal soap
in the summer of í01. It was at a festival workshop near
on Vashon Island, and Iíve since expanded my collection of
essential oils and evolved in my craft. Iíve introduced
products such as vitamin-enriched hand & body lotions, skin-nourishing
body oil, therapeutic body butter, softening lip balm and
playfully fizzy bath bombs.
Ever since I was a child, Iíve been fascinated with the
origins of ingredients and the diversity of the world around
us. I appreciate the offerings of our environment and
believe in leaving minimal impact. This is part of my
motivation to use no synthetic colors, chemicals or animal
products (with a sensible exception of creamy goatís milk).
Natural essential oils are blended with their aromatherapy
qualities in mind, gratifying the senses in countless ways.
I use a traditional Cold-Process technique, with origins
in ancient times.
Handcrafted in small
batches, each bar a unique work of art.
I begin by combining Olive, Coconut and Palm and other
plant-based oils with filtered water, sodium hydroxide,
distinctly blended essential oils and other ingredients
before pouring into a mold. I may include botanicals from
our garden such as cuts of lavender, mint, rosemary, sage
and dried flowers. The soap is then carefully sliced and
safe to use after 24 hours, but is cured on drying racks
for several weeks, resulting in a hard bar of soap,
retaining the natural glycerin which softens the skin.
This is unlike many industrially-manufactured bars, when
glycerin is lost in the process.
Youíll experience a rich, foamy lather and exceptional
aromas as you emerge gently moisturized. The result, a
very happy clean!
I hope you will enjoy the nurturing and revitalizing
sensations of therapeutic aromas and the moisturizing
benefits of my handmade body care products.
