ABOUT US

 

 

 

 

Hello and welcome to Moonflower Essentials!  My name is Barbara, and I discovered my potential in artisanal soap making in the summer of í01. It was at a festival workshop near Seattle 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.

 

About the Soaps:

 

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.
