Some outtakes from the local high school craft fair we attended on Saturday.
This time around Tyra brought more skincare and personal care products than bath and body products. We’re still trying to find our groove with attending vendor craft fairs and figuring out what products potential customers will respond to the best. We met a lot of people with interest in the products, but they were reluctant to buy which is understandable. Instead of being discouraged by the lack of sales, we had good conversations and gave everyone we met a business card to encourage them to visit the website to learn more about our products.
Although attending this event was not one of our most productive days, it gave us an opportunity to meet other local business owners while learning and discovering tips we can implement to improve our booth setup and product promotion. Tyra is still not completely convinced that doing vendor events is beneficial to growing the business, but we did gain a lead for a possible home party to promote products locally.
Made with all natural and organic ingredients, white Willow Bark Blemish Control Face Toner can help fight acne. It contains natural salicylic acid that exfoliates skin by sloughing off dead skin cells and making your skin bright and radiant. It also contains tannins that are rich in antioxidants that reduces redness and aids in rejuvenating the skin.
What is White Willow Bark Extract?
Willow bark, the bark of several varieties of willow tree, has been used for centuries as a pain reliever. The active ingredient in the medicine made from willow bark is called salicin.
Some people use willow bark as an alternative to aspirin, particularly those that experience chronic headaches or back pain. Willow bark is also used in some products to aid weight loss.
It comes from the branches of 2- to 3-year-old willow trees. Willow trees and shrubs grow all over the world, except for Australia and Antarctica. The white willow and black willow are two of the most common willows that are used medicinally.
White Willow Bark Skincare Benefits
Willow bark contains salicylic acid, derived from salicin, which helps to fight acne and is an all natural, gentle exfoliant. White willow bark helps to exfoliate your skin by sloughing off dead skin cells, making way for fresh, bright and radiant skin.
Astringent and Anti-inflammatory
The astringent properties of white willow bark are due to the tannins present. Similar to those found in green tea extract, tannins are rich in anti-oxidants, help to tone and reduce inflammation, making white willow bark also an effective additive for reducing redness in skin.
Balancing & Cleansing
Willow bark is also an effective botanical for cleansing by controlling sebum production and helping to unclog pores.
Who should use White Willow Bark? All skin types can find willow bark extract a useful additive to their skin care routine. Dry skin will benefit from willow barks exfoliating properties, oily skin will benefit from oil control and its astringent properties. All of this, and yet it’s still gentle enough for sensitive skin.

Benefits of Helichrysum Hydrosol

Among the best anti-aging hydrosols is helichrysum. It tightens, tones and firms skin as well as nourishes it, which boosts collagen and keeps it supple.

It is said to promote tranquility and helps an individual reflect on their past and overcome emotional pain & mental trauma, enabling them to move on. You can diffuse it with another pleasant-smelling hydrosol.
The active ingredient Organic Blue Tansy, also known as Moroccan Blue Chamomile, is a highly curative oil that has real tissue regenerating abilities. The light botanical aroma makes for a lovely scent; however, the real appeal of this deep blue oil is its medicinal effectiveness.
Why use Blue Tansy for the skin? Blue tansy can be applied topically so long as as long as it has been diluted first. It is a popular choice of essential oil for simply moisturizing the skin but can also help treat a variety of skin conditions because of its antibacterial, anti-fungal and anti-inflammatory activities.

What are peptides?
Peptides are chains of amino acids that are the building blocks of proteins in the skin. When peptides form a long chain of amino acids, they become proteins. When they are in a short chain of amino acids, they are able to penetrate the top layer of our skin and send signals to our cells to let them know how to function.
One important protein in our skin is collagen. Collagen gives our skin its thickness and suppleness. When collagen breaks down in the skin (from age and environmental factors like the sun and stress), wrinkles form. Peptides applied topically to the skin can send a signal to collagen to prompt the formation of new collagen, and voila, you have the appearance of more youthful, supple skin.
How to use peptides
For the most part, peptides take time to work. Peptides are best applied in serums or creams for a long period of time. You can start to see results in four to 12 weeks. Keep in mind that upkeep is so important with peptides. Once you stop using them, you will notice the difference.

After a long hiatus, our cold process soaps are back! Introducing 4 new soap bars:
Benefits of cold process soap:
- Our cold process soaps are made with all-natural ingredients such as essential oils, plant oils and Shea butters that are blended together to create a rich lathering soap that moisturizes the skin. Unlike other soap types, cold process soap penetrate into the skin to nourish and help minimize dry itchy skin.
- Natural ingredients can be lost through the heating process in hot process soap techniques; the cold process method ensures these natural ingredients are better preserved.
- Natural essential oils, like lavender and jasmine, or fragrance oils are added to cold process soaps because they take a number of weeks to fully cure and the scent intensifies over time.
- Cold process soaps are colorful and can be made with a level of artistry with many soaps decorated with swirls, layers of color and all sorts of interesting designs. Some are mixed with natural ingredients for texture while others have a top layer of herbs for an artistic final touch.
