How Cool Is This?

Stephany, my 14 year old, has a constant stream of kids over. They are just so amazed that her mom makes soap, lip balm, and lotion bars. If I'm working on a new recipe then she and her friends get to be my guinea pigs. A couple of weeks ago it was lip balm - I had 6 teenagers sitting in my living room putting lip balm on their lips. They were so funny.

I had given them all a push-up lotion bar a while back when I was experimenting. One of Steph's friends came up to me today and said that she has eczema and dry skin on her arms very badly. She said that she tries to use lotion but it makes her itch. She had started using the lotion bar that I gave her and it completely cleared up her arms!! No more itch! How cool is that? That's what makes all this so satisfying - knowing that someone is helped with a skin problem or finds a bit of pleasure in a bar of soap or a lotion bar! I love what I do!

Hi, Kay!

How cool it is to be able to say, "I love what I do." What a blessing...

Your products are incredible. I wish I could afford to buy everyone a bar of your soap, and one of your lotion bars. You know I have given many as gifts, and everyone raves about the quality, the delicate "just right" scents, and the improvement in their skin.

How wonderful! I really feel that we would get rid of half of our alergies and junk if we got back to basics and stopped using all of the artificial junk. Good job!!!
