Apples and Catnip!



A fun little trick I like to use is shave off pieces/curls of soap with a potato peeler and place in potpourri bowls around my house. Smells DIVINE!

Crunch Time!

Hello Dear Customers....

Sparks are FLYIN' from the workshop! It's officially Crunch-Time.....i.e. lengthened lead time on orders.  We've been inundated with a large wave of orders this week, we always process orders first-come-first-served in the queue, and this is pushing some lead times into the 2-3 week out range.  It may be sooner, but that's the outer safe-bet guess.  

It will likely remain like this through holiday season, if history repeats itself.  So please, if you have specific need-by dates for your soap/merchandise & events for the upcoming months, do ORDER EARLY!  We're working as hard & fast as we can to keep up!  :)

And thanks very much allowing us to be your handmade soap & potion source!

Sincerely,
~Carol

*NEW* Bath POTIONS!

Our *NEW* collection of 6 salt and milk baths that are luxurious soaks to super-soften, nourish and replenish your skin, as well as aromatherapeutically ease your mind and enliven your spirit!
I've never personally been much of a *bath oil* type of gal, oils make me feel too greasy, and there's always that precarious worry of slipping and falling in the tub...YIKES! Salts and/or milk baths have always been my preference. Just a clean, non-greasy way to moisturize & pamper with uber-enriching ingredients like goatmilk, coconut milk, honey, sea salt, and more! And these instantly make your skin feel SO SILKY! Divine!
Selections are:
- Breakfast Bath
- Cleopatra's Milk & Honey Tub
- Coconut Milk & Oat Tonic
- Herbal Protection Soak
- Hurricane
- The Salted Mermaid
Each comes as 10 oz. in a heavy glassine envelope with re-sealable label. Use 2 oz. per bath, and you have five baths-worth per pkg.!
Come read all of their luscious descriptions and pick your favorite(s)!

We're deLIGHTed to introduce....our new product line!

Bewick'd Candles!

Beewitchingly beeautiful organic beeswax and coconut container candles!
Personally, I adore the pure scent of natural beeswax, it's slightly honeyed essence, but we also offer these five container selections in essential oil aromatherapy blends corresponding to the elements. And we don't go with just the usual four - Air, Earth, Fire, Water....we go the Chinese Medicine route and include Wood, as well, because, well, some of us are called to and draw strength from the power and magic of The Woods! We also use heavy-duty recycled glass and/or reusable glass jars! And I especially love our Handle Candle that you can pick-up and take-with, wherever you want to enjoy your candle -- room-to-room, out in the garden or workshop. As you can tell, I designed these candles on personal preferences. 
Come check out the new line! And may they bring *magical light* into your life!

"What is a weed? A plant whose virtues have not yet been discovered." - Ralph Waldo Emerson
Our potions are handcrafted organic salves and balms created to soothe, calm, & nourish skin, using Nature's purely magical bounty, and wisdom of the ancients!


How many of you knew that Neosporin (for example) is made with petroleum jelly, a by-product of the petroleum industry, and first discovered on oil rigs? Or would you prefer something Mother Nature serves up...with a little help from us?!

Wylde Faerie Soaps!


Wylde Faerie Soaps!
"Come away, O human child!
To the waters and the wild
With a faery, hand in hand,
For the world’s more full of weeping than you can understand."
​- W.B. Yeats
