New Products: Liquid Soap!

I like hard soap bars for my shower and bathtub but I love liquid soap for my facial washing (although many of my friends love liquid soap for their shower/bath times as well). I made three kinds of liquid soap that are fit for face and body but I did formulate the blends to focus on one or multiple parts of the body depending on your needs

Tam Thyme Liquid Soaps - Unscented, Rosey Soap, Citrusy Soap

Rosey Liquid Soap

My absolute favorite liquid soap - especially for facial washing! I was inspired from a rather expensive rose facial wash I used to use to craft my own more affordable version. The essential elements are organic dried Rose and Rosemary hydrosols - it gives this liquid soap such a silky, velvety feel on your hands and face! Rose and Rosemary herbs have natural anti-inflammatory components - reducing redness.  There is also Rosemary Essential Oil for an aromatic and invigorating experience, especially when waking up in the morning.

Citrusy Soap

Citrusy Liquid Soap

Just like you start out your day with a glass of orange juice, why not wake up your body with citrusy liquid soap? This soap is a wonderful blend of quintessential citrus elements including lemon and orange peel hydrosols and an organic citrus inspired fragrance. Lovely scent without the acidic after-feel.

Unscented Liquid Soap

Unscented liquid soap

This unscented liquid soap is thicker than the other liquid soaps because where it lacks in hydrosols or fragrance, it makes up for in a wonderful oil base of Geranium, Lemon Grass, Sage, Chamomile, and Lavender extracts - all complete with beneficial properties to help your skin - from face to body.

Wish List: Hair Steamer

So ever since I finished reading, Textured Tresses: The Ultimate Guide to Maintaining and Styling Natural Hairby Diane Da Costa, I have been kind of obsessing and wishing for a hair steamer. I really enjoy taking an hour on my sundays, glooping tons of deep conditioner on my hair and sitting under a hair dryer (soft bonnet) thinking how all those moisturizing agents are making my hair softer and easier to manage as time goes by! Hair steamers from what I have read seem to do the same thing in terms of deep conditioning, but you can also add essential oils and other ingredients to help with scalp issues, according to Da Costa. Coming from the perspective of a drier texture of hair, I would LOVE to get my hands on one of these to try it out since I feel my hair is always thirsty! If it doesn't wind up wrapped in a box under the xmas tree, I think I will mostly likely purchase Secura S-192 Hair and Facial Steamer through amazon for $79.99. According to reviews, the amount of water it can hold steams for about 15 minutes. The steamers that are actually on stands run into the $100s and above. My reasoning is that I will try it out to see if I like it first before investing in a pricier version - plus this version allows for facial steaming as well to clear out all those clogged pores.
