This is one of oops moments that turns out to be a Serendipity moment. I have made soap hundreds (if not thousands) of times and almost always have Coconut Oil as one of my ingredients. My Mango Butter soaps are not one them. So when I first realized that I had added Coconut oil I thought all was lost for this soap. But I recalculated the other ingredients to ensure a saponification would happen. I added Peppermint and Lavender for a light scent. What I wound up with was an awesome bar of soap that lathers great and makes the skin feel so soft after use. I had a co-worker try it and she loved it, buying five bars of the soap the next week. This listing is for a one ounce travel size soap.
The great ingredients are:
Wild harvested Mango butter effectively treats dry, clears blemishes and wrinkle, relieves itching skin, heals sunburn, treats small skin wounds and skin cracks, moisturizes and smoothes tough or rough skin, relieves insect bites, promotes healthy rejuvenated skin, heals muscle fatigue, aches and tension relieves allergies such as poison ivy or poison oak, treats eczema and dermatitis, fights off fine lines and wrinkle. What an amazing butter!
Organic Olive Oil - Ancient civilization used olive oil to heal wounds. Today it is considered a good remedy for skin problems and an effective moisturizer. Olive oil benefits are surprisingly simple yet extremely effective.
Organic Palm Oil - contains natural antibacterial that fight acne bacteria. Using palm oil on your skin can help maintain moisturized, yet clear skin. Dryness can actually cause the skin to become irritated and sensitive, which can lead to acne. This antibacterial oil is also good for your hair and scalp because it can prevent scalp acne and dry scalp. rich in vital nutrients. These vitamins are essential for healthy hair and skin. Vitamins A and E are free radical neutralizers. Free radicals are unpaired molecules in the body that cause destruction of your cells. These vitamins fight free radicals, helping to protect and preserve your cells, resulting in healthier skin.
Organic Coconut oil is effective in the treatment of a variety of skin problems. Some of the skin problems that benefit from coconut oil use include eczema, psoriasis, and dermatitis. Coconut oil has antioxidant properties, which help delay the aging of skin and prevent skin cell damage. Finally, coconut oil has anti-fungal and anti-bacterial benefits. It speeds up the healing of tissues as well.
Palm Kernel Oil gives a great hardening affect that makes the bar last longer.
Peppermint essential oil has an energizing pick me up scent and may have a slight tingle to skin. I like to think of that as a wake me up for my body.
Lavender has a calming, relaxing affect but oddly enough it doesn't decrease the energy from the Peppermint.
All of my soaps are handcrafted from scratch by me. I chose the best and organic ingredients available. They age a minium of four weeks for five ounce soaps and two weeks for one ounce soaps before they are ready to sell.

To get the best burn time on any candle burn no longer than 3-4 hours.
Light the wick with a spagetti stick (yes it's ok to light the stick with a lighter or match). This avoids that black ring from the petro in the lighter or sout from the wooden match. Plus you can reach deep into those tall candle jars.
Do not leave burning candles unattended. Do not leave burning candles or the glass containers within a childs or pets reach.
Do not use the lid to estinguish the flame.
As with all things in life some people may find a allergic reaction to an ingreadient in the candles, lotions, soaps and lip balm. I do take care in chosing the ingredients that I use and post them in product information. The only exception is the votives that have botanicals added at the manufacturers to give a firmness of the product. If you have any allergies to botanicals please use this product with care. So far no one has had a reaction but if you do you do have an allergic reaction to any products (mine or someone elses) stop using the product and seek medical attention. I, nor this business, are responsible for any costs accrued by you.
