My name is Shari, and I’ve been making soap, natural skincare and soy candles for over 20 years. (I also dabble in some jewelry making when the mood strikes.)

I’m pleased to offer skin-loving products containing olive oil, avocado oil, jojoba oil, shea butter, mango butter and more. Gentle kaolin clay is included in most of my soaps which not only adds smoothness but is also perfect for shaving. I  make products which can help dry, sensitive, oily, and–um, how shall I say it?–“experienced” skin.

My blog will be filled with my favorite things such as DIY natural skincare and other projects and healthy (for the most part) recipes.  I say “for the most part” because certain things, like buffalo chicken dip, just MUST be full-on fat.  I WILL NOT use low-fat bleu cheese dressing in my buffalo chicken dip.  I. Just. Will. Not.

I am inclined to share really cool websites I may come across,  and I also like to report random good-to-know information. For example, my neurotic fear of spiders prompted me to research and write about natural spider and bug repellants. You can also expect funny commentary on random topics which we can all relate to.

Stay tuned for some fun projects and interesting information. If you’d like to check out my current products for sale, take a look here.
