The Decoction of:
Fresh Aloe Vera (Aloe Barbadensis) leaves and freshly cut Hibiscus Flowers (Hibiscus Rosa-Senensis).
What is the difference between a decoction and an infusion? Both are ways of releasing herbal nutrients into water. An Infusion is the way you make Tea. A Decoction takes several days. This is an ancient Chinese method of dissolving ALL the herbs’ nutrients into water. Heating, Cooling, Heating, Cooling.
Some of the our other ingredients:
Shea Butter, Emulsifying wax, Stearic acid, Cetyl Stearyl Alcohol, MCT: Medium-Chain Triglycerides, Germall Plus, Optiphen, Natural Essential Oils. Lavender, **pH neutral**
Our new Aleppo Soap just hit the website -ONLY 50 BARS they will go fast! Our ugliest soap yet but by far the most luxurious
Back in 2015 We were experimenting with making Aleppo Soap. Due to the war in Syria all production of this soap has ceased. They made this famous soap a special way using 25% Laurel Berry Oil and Olive Oil. And then cured it for 9 months to a year.
We have left this batch on the tray for 2 years! Now it’s ready and creamy as ever!
The Tepezcohuite is made from a bark. The Ancient Mayans were the first people to use and discover the amazing healing properties. They considered it sacred!
Tepezcohuite works using flavonoids that increase the protective rating of your skin. These flavonoids are thought to work by diminishing capillary permeability, which makes it more difficult for toxins to enter the body through the skin.
Additional micronutrients have even more benefits for your skin. Tepezcohuite has been found to be rich with zinc, copper, manganese, iron, and magnesium – all of which play a critical role in your skin. These micronutrients are thought to be the reason why Tepezcohuite is an effective treatment for scars, herpes, psoriasis, burns, acne, wrinkles, and other skin blemishes. As little as 30 minutes, twice a week can show amazing benefits.
We first start with Mowrah butter from the Indian butter tree. Mowrah Butter might be the most slickest and lubricating oils on the planet. Great for shaving!
Slowly melting the butter
Don’t want it to get too hot
Now set it aside. Time to prepare the other ingredients
Now for the Vegetable Waxes, Glycerin & DL -Panthenol, Ready for boiling and Reverse Osmosis Purified Water. Making sure to get the temperature just right before adding the oils!
Now adding the butter, everything is tightly controlled. Temperature, Speed even the size of the mixing tools. Tools even have to be changed as the mixture thickens.
Now into a quick Ice bath
On to the giant mixer for the last mix for that extra thick & whipped Shaving Butter!
All this work for 88 jars we will sell in weeks!
Now in addition to our 7 therapeutic essential Oils we’ve added in the 9 Healing Herbs to make this product even more powerful.
A short story about that Refined Rose Hip Oil on the left.
It’s been sitting in a refrigerator for 14 years. I bought it by mistake. We tried to use it instead of our usual Virgin Rose Hip Oil. In the beginning, I just didn’t understand the difference. When the moisturizer was made I couldn’t believe the difference. It was so weak and unexciting. I noticed it first because the color was different. It seemed like we had made a moisturizer using mineral oil. Luckily, we hadn’t put it in the jars. So we tossed that batch and quickly ordered the good stuff. I still hold onto it as a reminder to always use the best ingredients.
The picture shows you why we believe our skin products are so much better. Almost all skin care companies try to save as much money as they can. Even the ones who make high priced moisturizers still cut corners. One way they cut costs, is to use highly refined oils. The deeper colors of the virgin oils, show you how many nutrients are present. They use dyes to cover this up.
What’s the difference between virgin and refined oils?
Virgin Oils are first pressing using as little heat as possible. Refining produces a lot more oil. But refining (they use a lot of heat) strips out many, if not most of these nutrients.
So what nutrients are in these Virgin oils?
These Virgin oils are rich in nutrients such as carotenoids, tocotrienols, and tocopherols. They are loaded with antioxidants like phenols, terpenes, and glucosides; vitamins A, C, and E; beta-carotene; plant sterols; and trace elements such as copper, iron, selenium, and manganese. All important nutrients your skin can use to become healthy.
Why can’t we just apply these oils to our skin?
Our skin is 64% water. Oils and water don’t naturally mix. Oils don’t absorb well into our skin The way we make our true moisturizers insures these precious oils will absorb deep into your skin.

Whew! That was close. We were down to 3 jars of Carley’s Wild Rose Hip Moisturizer. We’re always at the mercy of mother nature. She cut it close this year.
We were waiting on the new crop of Rose Hip Virgin Organic Oil. It just came in Friday for Mondays orders. So we’re working the weekend to get it ready.
This picture doesn’t do the moisturizer justice. It is a much deeper color. The highly processed Rose Hip is clear and inferior and easy to get. We only use the good Virgin stuff.
Unfortunately the price we paid was 50% higher. Oh well, we can’t skimp.

One 8 ounce bottle of our new Sulfate Free Shampoo or this is your chance to try a different size of our Tea Tree Acne treatment. A smaller special 8 ounce bottle.
We offered this shampoo last Sunday and the response was incredible. We are still getting people to ask for a bottle. So we were able to restock on the ingredients and we made more.
Our new shampoo is sulfate free, which means it is great for color treated hair. Plus avoiding sulfates helps your skin to stay clearer and healthier. Virtually all liquid shampoos have sulfates in them. Even many of the ones calling themselves natural, also use sulfates.
Cocamidopropyl betaine is an ingredient in a lot of ‘natural’ shampoos. Cocamidopropyl betaine is also a sulfate.
Our Tea Tree Acne treatment has been around for a while and a lot of people wanted to give it a try to see if it will keep them clear like our kick ass or regular strength. It’s especially good after your acne has been under control.
Occasionally we run into a customer that this is the only product that controls their acne. This is a clear path to an even more natural solution. We won’t be selling this 8 ounce size, but it is a great opportunity for you to give it a fair try.

Our new Green Tea Acne Spot Control allows you to naturally keep your skin health in check.
Since 1999 we’ve been producing unique, effective acne products. We see so many new customers come to us maxed out on spot treatments. Due to this addiction, some take several weeks for us to help them with our acne scrubs. So our opinion of spot treatments has always been ‘NO WAY, NO HOW!’
This is due to the majority of spot treatments using harsh acids and/or benzoyl peroxide as the active ingredient. Even the so-called “natural treatments” are very acidic. Long-term contact works for a while. Then the skin eventually adapts.
This is why we’ve created a natural treatment that isn’t harsh for the skin. Containing powdered green tea leaves AND seven exciting therapeutic essential oils, this spot control helps your skin maintain and repair health.
