Natural Joy Beauty

Their goal is to take the guesswork out of shopping for healthier alternatives and provide a wide variety of products that you can truly feel good about using.

Sierra Legacy Hardwood Combs

comb“Since the advent of plastics, the art of making hardwood combs has almost died out. To the best of my knowledge, I am the only combmaker in America. Combmaking has been my livelihood for the last thirty-five years. All of my combs are hand make, using special tools that I developed. Each comb is inlaid using two pieces of kiln dried hardwood laminated together, cross-grained to combine strength in both directions, a marriage of sorts. I am currently using 13 domestic and imported hardwoods so many beautiful combinations are possible. The major differences between any other type of grooming devise and a finely made wooden comb is measured by the ease the comb slides thru your hair and just how much less breakage there is using wooden combs. Wood and hair are quite similar. You will eliminate static electrical buildup as wood does not conduct. Wooden combs do not strip vital oils and do not stretch hair, eliminating broken and split ends. They also provide wonderful scalp massage, stress relief. Your hair and your appearance is important to you so celebrate it with your own wooden comb.” I got one of these combs and I have to say it’s a work of art. I’ve been buying cheap wooden combs for many years and they break. This is substantial and really does the job.

Nail17

“The only product available that kills all 17 bacteria known to cause unhealthy nails without using harsh chemicals or causing painful side effects. The formula was developed by a world-renowned professor at a leading university in Michigan, and remains the only all-natural solution. Athletes, seniors and anyone suffering can be freed from unhealthy nails with Nail 17. Nail 17’s patented formula combines the naturally occurring essential oils of Camphor, Thymol, Menthol, and Eucalyptus, specifically selected for their ability to promote healthy nails. Each individual oil contains properties that effectively stops the progression of the 17 microbes that cause unsightly nails, promoting healthy new nail growth. The inactive ingredient, Isopropyl Alcohol, carries the four essential oils to deeply penetrate the nail plate.” NOTE: I don’t usually recommend isopropyl alcohol, however I am recommending this product which contains it because it is much safer than other treatments.

We focus on growing organic herbs on our farm in East Sooke, using the freshest organic oils and house made hydrosols to craft products that are amazing, completely natural and inspired by the landscape of this beautiful coast. We take pride at Wild Hill in creating each of our products in small batches by hand to ensure freshness and quality control.

Good4You Plant Makeup

Paint your face with plants. These unique and simply makeup products provide a rainbow of gentle plant-based colors for eyes and lips. She uses “local flowers and herbs to create makeup, skin care and bath products for a new era of natural beauty…Plant Makeup is a bit different than regular makeup. It applies lighter on skin compared to bold dramatic colors. When Plant Makeup creator Jes first started out studying plants, she made plant based paints for a project in a class she was taking. The result was a lighter gentler paint, compared to deep colored conventional paints. Chemicals make it possible to obtain crazy makeup colors. Really cool shades, but not really made of the best ingredients. So plants themselves act more like a natural dye than a dramatic bold color stain…All Good4You ingredients are either locally grown // foraged locally or certified organic. We only want the best in each of these creations so they vibrate with as much vitality as they were first gathered from the earth. We have a great respect for nature and only want to inspire + spread a message of conservation, protection and awareness through anything we offer back to the world.

The products that I found either contained synthetic, harmful ingredients, or they were very poor in quality. So I began the on-going process of education, trial and error and long days of study about the process of soap making. Then came the study of the tremendous effects of essential oils (better known as aromatherapy) on the body and the mind. I think that we have combined our years of study, research and experimentation to create truly exceptional products. We have always used only the highest quality ingredients and we have always created our products with great consideration for the body, mind, spirit and the environment.”

Sinfully Wholesome

Listen to my interview with Ken McGowan, Founder of Sinfully Wholesome

I found this website because a reader wrote and said, “There are only four ingredients in this soap. I think that’s the smallest number of ingredients I’ve ever seen in a soap. This soap was used by Cleopatra. I think it may be in a class of it’s own.” The website says “Beyond organic natural skin care…wildcrafted soaps and oils are 100% natural and handcrafted from wild and/or organic fruits and their precious oils.” I have to say that the ingredients used to make these products are among the purest and most extravagant I’ve seen…Nepalese soap nuts, cold pressed oils to retain micronutrients, natural spring water…even the wrapping is wildcrafted handmade lokta paper to preserve the potency of the precious oils. All soaps can be used head to toe, for bathing, shampoo, and shaving.

Reusable personal hand towels, made of a patent-pending fabric that’s 100% certified organic Fair Trade cotton. The light-weight fabric is absorbent, yet dries quickly, making it possible to carry and use in public places instead of paper towels. One of the co-founders discovered the concept of using a personal hand towel on her first visit to Japan where everyone – men, women, children – young and old carry a hand towel because they do not have paper towels in public places in Japan, and hand dryers are only occasionally found in large cities. PeopleTowels are printed with eco-friendly dyes, and come in a variety of designs to appeal to different tastes and styles. Convenient hangtags even allow you to clip or loop your PeopleTowels to your backpack, belt buckle or purse.

Prima Natural

Listen to my interview with Prima Natural Founder Heidi Sanner.

A unique handmade, gentle, chemical-free soap, that leaves your skin “effectively cleansed yet still soft and resilient…without pore clogging residue, sticky lotion or heat retaining oils.” Whole, raw goat milk and raw honey are combined in a special way to retain the vital vitamins, minerals and enzymes that make the difference. The unique process incorporates each ingredient slowly and carefully to enhance and promote the cleansing and nourishing properties. This produces an incredibly dense, gentle yet effective soap. Your skin is the largest organ of your body. Keeping it effectively clean and free of residue allows it to absorb essential needs from the air (oxygen), the sun (vitamin D) and the world around you. Also, important is the ability to excrete toxins and produce cooling moisture. Prima Natural™ soap respects and preserves these vital functions. Skin should not be masked with residual oils, lotions, creams or chemicals. Really clean, nourished skin does not require any of these. For a true natural clean and the health of your skin and your body:  eat well, drink plenty of water and cleanse with effective yet gentle Prima Natural™ soap.

Swanson Soapworks

I found this soapmaker at my local farmer’s market and was immediately drawn by the artistry of the simle swirls on the edge of each soap bar–akin to the swirl of frosting on top of a cake. Then I learned they make their soaps with a vegetable-based blend of water, olive oil, sustainably produced coconut oil, sustainably produced palm oil, vegetable shortening, sodium hydroxide (lye), essential oils (if scented), clays (if added) & spices. They make our bars in small batches using the traditional “stir the kettle” cold press method and use only pure essential oils, natural clays & powders, herbs from their garden and filtered water. I bought a bar, of course: Spicy Peppermint with Green Tea. Other scented varieties are more citrus and herbal than floral, also unscented.

Truly unscented soaps, butters, scrubs, and balms, handmade by a woman who understands the meaning of the word. “I developed MCS in 2005 and now make unscented natural soaps from scratch. I don’t use any dyes or anything artificial. Body butters, lip balms, and bath teas too – all made without added fragrances in my scent free, smoke free, pesticide free home. Please warn MCS folks not to purchase handmade soaps from soapmakers who use essential oils or fragrance oils because their hands, molds, storage areas, packaging, etc. will all be fragrance contaminated. Although I add a variety of botanicals for beauty, variety, and skin loving properties, the lye process zaps 99% of the scent of anything I add (I note exceptions in my write-ups) and so most smell simply like a fresh bar of soap. I can no longer work outside of the home due to my MCS and so purchasing my soaps helps support my family.”

comb“Since the advent of plastics, the art of making hardwood combs has almost died out. To the best of my knowledge, I am the only combmaker in America. Combmaking has been my livelihood for the last thirty-five years. All of my combs are hand make, using special tools that I developed. Each comb is inlaid using two pieces of kiln dried hardwood laminated together, cross-grained to combine strength in both directions, a marriage of sorts. I am currently using 13 domestic and imported hardwoods so many beautiful combinations are possible. The major differences between any other type of grooming devise and a finely made wooden comb is measured by the ease the comb slides thru your hair and just how much less breakage there is using wooden combs. Wood and hair are quite similar. You will eliminate static electrical buildup as wood does not conduct. Wooden combs do not strip vital oils and do not stretch hair, eliminating broken and split ends. They also provide wonderful scalp massage, stress relief. Your hair and your appearance is important to you so celebrate it with your own wooden comb.” I got one of these combs and I have to say it’s a work of art. I’ve been buying cheap wooden combs for many years and they break. This is substantial and really does the job.

They have no labels on the soaps–their name and the price is stamped into the soap! In the shop, the irregular hand-cut pieces sit out in open baskets. They don't give you a bag unless you ask for one. Their blends are unusual and absolutely wonderful–like oatmeal and lavender, vanilla and mint, ginger and grapefruit. Ask them what they have when you are ready to order, as I noticed not all of the blends in the store were on their website.

I look for oils that are unrefined, cold-pressed and not heated (over about 105 degrees). I also look into the issue of picked when ripe.”
