Make your own laundry soap

You may not think about it, but every week you spend around $5. on laundry soap. I used to and then I started thinking about it and made my own! As a soap maker, I have lots of soap scraps left over. I created my own recipe for making it. I also made this recipe available with my natural stain remover stick. You can find it at one of our shows or watch for it to be on my ETSY Green Botanicals
Here is an e-mail from a happy customer
"Hi Cynthia,which one of your soaps did you use in the laundry soap? I'm going to need to get some. I couldn't believe how wonderful the laundry detergent recipe is. I don't have to tell you how much I love all my cremes.Thank you,Karen"
So watch for it or check us out at a show soon!

Cracked Winter Skin

This time of the year the cold weather is so rough on our skin and now even our friends in Florida can benefit from using our wonderful Winter Salve - if you have never tried it now is the time! What is a salve? It is the base of thickened oils that all organic skin creams are made from, to turn salve into cream you need to add alcohol. So avoid the drying effect of alcohol and try a salve.
We make our salves from our own Adirondack herbs such a peppermint,plantain and comfrey that help treat the cracks .The herbs are infused in organic olive oils, thickened with pure raw bees wax and organic essential oils that are anti fungal, anti bacterial and vaporizing.
Thousands of happy customers in Central New York use this product and believe us - we know how to treat winter skin!
