How will I receive my order?

You will receive your art and soaps beautifully and carefully packaged and will be shipped using USPS (United States postal service) or UPS.  You will be provided a tracking number once your package ships. It will be emailed to you.

All orders are shipped 1-4 days from day payment is received, verified and processed.   If you are ordering a piece of furniture or painting, it will be shipped via UPS due to the size and dimensions and shipping requirements.  You will be notified prior to shipping of the cost.  Note: Due to the odd dimensions and weight which can fluctuate for furniture, it will be taken to the local UPS location to be weighed and priced with the address you have given me  for correct shipping estimates. 

How do you create your handmade soaps and bath essentials?

 I believe in keeping things simple, honest, pure and as organic and certified organic as possible.  I also do not make any medical claims that my hand made soaps will resolve or cure specific skin problems.   I strive to create a product that is naturally nourishing to the skin which will contribute towards your skin comfort and healing process without adverse reaction from chemicals, sulfates and parabens found in store shelf products.  Soaps are free of synthetic chemicals and are only scented with essential oils.  The scents tend to be subtle and not overwhelming to your senses.  The soft colors found in my soaps are achieved naturally with herbs, spices, botanicals, vegetable juices and natural clays.  

Soaps are made in small batches using the cold process, and traditional French hand-milled methods from my cold process batches.  Soaps are made from vegetable oils such as extra virgin olive oil, coconut oil, and Castor oil, Jojoba, grape seed oil to name a few, animal fats known as lard, tallow or sodium tallowate are not used.  Wonderful butters and essential oils, herbs, spices , natural earth clays and infused oils are added in the soap making process which contribute natural color and scent.   Currently soaps are not available as we are working on a new bath collection line which will be introduced later in 2018. 

Is your hand made soap good for sensitive skin?

My soaps  do not contain any of the chemical additives that are often responsible for skin irritations.
