About our items:
Heather started trying to find alternatives to commercial brand laundry detergent when even the sensitive skin types of detergent were not working for her son. She decided to make her own with all organic soaps that are gentle enough for a baby’s sensitive skin but tough enough for a baby’s clothes and perfect for a high efficiency machine.
During her first pregnancy in 2013, Heather had breakouts that no face wash would seem to help. After months and months of research, she found out about the oil cleansing method. This method only uses natural oils to gently pull dirt and grime from pores, leaves a thin layer of protective oils and helps skin regulate natural oil production.
The healing properties of aloe Vera gel are what lead heather to create the moisturizer and primer sun protectant. For a while her son had a chronic rash on his neck that would lead to cracked skin and store brand creams or ointments seemed to take days to heal it. While she initially had made a basic lotion, she combined a few ideas and created a more versatile lotion she used as a sun protecting moisturizer and make up primer as well as a protective healing cream for her sons skin.
Heather has used sea salt sprays in her hair for years. None were just perfect. Some would leave a sticky layer, others would make it too frizzy. She started making her own and has perfected the ratio of ingredients to achieve a textured but soft wave look.
