What is the crystal inside your products?
One of the alternative healing techniques we incorporate in our products is crystal therapy. It is believed that crystals have the ability to hold and emit energy vibrations to promote energy balance, release stress and pain, and induce relaxation. We place certain crystals in our products, according to the effect of each type of crystal, along with positive affirmations to tap into the subconscious mind and allow you to manifest desires, attract positivity, and promote healing and energy balance.
Why do some of your products have positive affirmations?
We strive to take an all-encompassing approach to beauty focusing on the emotional and mental aspects of feeling good, not just looking good. Many of our products contain positive affirmations that you can say and repeat to yourself daily to help tap into the subconscious mind allowing you to manifest desires, attract positivity, and promote healing and energy balance. We believe when you feel good on the inside, you look good on the outside!
What is sound therapy and how is it used in your products?
One of the alternative healing techniques we incorporate in our products is sound or vibrational therapy. Sound has been utilized in various cultures for thousands of years as a tool for relaxing and helping heal the body. When you see "energized purified water" in the ingredients list of a product it means the water incorporated has been tuned with vibrations to the earth's balancing frequency to promote healing and energy balance.
How do I use your cupcake soaps and other crazy shaped soaps?
All our soaps, including our cupcakes soaps, function just like normal soap. They lather and become smaller in size after repeated use just like other bar soaps. To use hold soap under warm running water and rub between hands to create a lather. For larger soaps they can be cut down in size using a sharp kitchen knife.
Can all your candles be applied to the body?
Yes, all our candles are made with a proprietary soy wax blend that when lit the warm melted oils can be applied to the body. To use just light the candle and allow it to burn for 15 minutes or until a pool of warm melted oil forms. Extinguish candle then dip fingers into the melted soy wax and massage onto hands, feet, and body for a deep penetrating treatment.
What’s the difference between your cold process soaps and vegetable glycerin soaps?
We use two different types of soap making methods when making our soaps. Cold process soap is what is considered the 'old-fashioned' way of making soap. Vegetable oils such as olive, avocado, coconut, and palm oil are combined with an alkali and water solution, and then cured overtime. No heat is applied during this process, which helps the soap maintain the integrity of the oils better. The result is a harder bar, more mild scent, and very moisturizing.
Vegetable glycerin soap is derived from vegetable fat, and uses heat to melt the soap ingredients in order to accelerate saponification. The result is a softer bar, a stronger more aromatic scent, and is also moisturizing for the skin.
Why do the same products sometimes vary in color or darken?
Many of our products contain handmade herbal infusions, which can affect the color of the product from batch to batch. Also, some of our products contain real vanilla, which can darken overtime and affect the color of the product from batch to batch.
