Skin Types


Acne:
Lavender Rosemary Soap is our answer to acne, this soap contains a special blend of high altitude lavender essential oils that work as an anti-inflammatory so it can shrink the size of pimples and the rosemary has been known for centuries to help balance natural skin oils so acne has less chance of coming back. The soap does not dry out the skin, it is made to help balance your natural skin oils. Wash gently in the morning and the evening, do not skip, and let the lather remain on your face long enough to brush your teeth and then rinse off. Most people see results in less than ten days. This soap is in our Acne Action Trio which we recommend for severe acne and has instructions.


All You Need Is Love:
We handcraft several products fresh daily that can have a potent effect on your love-life. Two soaps stand out in this respect: Amore and Exotic Spice. We also have a great love potion perfume that is 100% synthetic-free called Sensual Bliss. It is made with 6 essential oils that have been known for thousands of years that help increase romantic and sexual desire. Although we can’t guarantee immediate success, we do guarantee that our products will let love happen more frequently…..


Can’t Focus:
Exotic Spice Body/Massage Oil and Exotic Spice Soap have frankincense and myrrh which have been used in Catholic Churches for over 1,500 years prior to mass to help calm down and make the congregation focus. It’s also a help to students who need to study.
Young children have been helped by the spray we make called Good Time Out Spray if they are 2 years of age and older. You can use it as a facial spray if they close their eyes or as a room spray.


Chicken Skin:
Chicken Skin or keratosis pilaris is quite common, but comes in many forms. Commonly it appears as small red bumps on the back of the upper arms, it often gets more pronounced with weight gain, pregnancy, and menstruation periods. Two of our soaps have been helpful to a good many customers, the Cocoa Merlot Soap and the Kaizen Soap. Wet the body down with warm water, shut the water off, lather up those areas first, then lather the entire body, then rinse off. The Cocoa Merlot seems to work in about 85% of the people who try it. Results are normally noticeable in ten days or less.


Combination:
We have several soaps that can be good for oily and dry skin together: Lavender Rosemary Soap, Tea Tree Plus Soap, Orange Delight Soap, and Kaizen Soap. They are all great on the face and body.


Dry:
If you are using lotions frequently then they are simply not working for you; you need something that will truly benefit your skin for much much longer periods. Part of the reason our business is so successful is that our products need not be used every day because the benefits last a very long time. If you use any of our products for a week, you will see a dramatic difference in the health of dry skin, we guarantee it. The most moisturizing soaps we handcraft are Almond Cocoa Butter, Cocoa Merlot and Glacier & Granite with Exotic Spice and Rose Petal Honey following close behind. (Other soaps that work great for dry skin are Lavender Silk, Amore, Tango and Lemon Grove.) Any of our body oils will really do quite well because they are made with organic jojoba oil which soaks deeply into
the skin in just a minute or two. All the Butter Me Baby Shea Butters are also very deeply moisturizing with very long lasting results.


Dry Sometimes:
You have many choices so if your skin just gets slightly dry or very dry spots use any of the following soaps: Lavender Silk, Almond Cocoa Butter, Gift of Ghana, Rose Petal Honey, Cocoa Merlot, Exotic Spice, Amore, Tango, Glacier & Granite, Lavender Chocolate, Triple Cool Mint and Kaizen. Any of our body oils will really do quite well because they are made with organic jojoba oil and this oil soaks into the skin quickly and deeply moisturizes.


Eczema:
Our Eczema Express Trio has helped many many customers from mild to severe eczema over the years. The separate products in the Trio are Gift of Ghana Soap, Kaizen Soap and the Butter Me Baby Natural Shea Butter. The Trio also has instructions as well.


Experienced Skin:
Perhaps your skin has aged faster than your spirit, perhaps you’ve spent too much time in the sun way back when, perhaps you’ve spent too much time in adverse work environments where freeborn chemicals have affected your skin. Maybe you’ve become tired of what other companies call ‘natural’, but are preserved (& are so very very stale) and it’s affecting you. Perhaps you’ve never had herbal skincare made fresh for you daily! These 4 soaps are for those of us that have witnessed changes through time, and for those that have lost more than we bargained for. All four soaps can help eliminate fine wrinkles over time: Almond Cocoa Butter, Gift of Ghana, Rose Petal Honey and Lavender Silk. Use the Butter Me Baby Shea Butter in any scent every evening to speed up the process.


Finished With Chemotherapy:
We make a great soap that has powdered charcoal in it that can help draw toxins from the skin, and because it is made fresh with organic cocoa butter, it can work wonders with dry or damaged skin. Glacier & Granite Soap has the aroma of a chocolate covered mint and is gently refreshing and deodorizing too. You’ve probably made changes to your diet as well, eating mostly organic produce and refraining from an over abundance of meat, so this can help also.


Garden Frequently:
Your best soap to use is the Glacier & Granite as it removes toxins from the skin as it deeply moisturizes. Using the Moisture On The Go or the Protection On The Go for your hands is a perfect moisturizer after gardening.


Headaches:
Mint has been used to help with headaches and migraines for thousands of years, so we make a Triple Cool Mint Body Oil, Body & Room Spray, and Soap that contain a combination of peppermint, spearmint and eucalyptus for this purpose. The soap is one of our most popular.


In Chemotherapy Now:
Often the ordeal of this therapy damages or severely dries out the skin, so we make a fresh soap that helps with this. Rose Petal Honey is made with crushed roses, organic shea butter, organic cocoa butter. Rose oil has been shown to re-generate fine cell tissue, and the butters can heal and moisturize an the same time. The soap has organic honey as well, which draws moisture to the skin so that it retains it longer. We also make a Rose Butter-me-Baby Shea Butter that other chemo patients say has been great for deep moisturizing and healing.


Infants:
We strongly recommend the Butter Me Baby Natural Shea Butter as a moisturizer and the Gift of Ghana Soap. We do not recommend you use ANYTHING with essential oils until the child is older than 18 months. And of course, NEVER use any fragrance of any kind in your home or on an infant, remember they are toxic.


Insomnia:
Our Dreamtime Massage/Body Oil can help with this. It’s designed for those who can’t fall asleep, wake up frequently during the night & can’t go back to sleep, or wake up too early in the morning unrefreshed. It can help stop excessive mind chatter & help create positive sleep patterns. It is much safer than any drug or supplement that claims to help. We make it fresh for you with camomile, a blend of high altitude lavender essential oils, mandarin essential oil in a base of organic jojoba & apricot kernel oils. These oils soak into the skin quickly taking the essential oils into the skin, gently entering the bloodstream in just a few minutes. We recommend that you begin by massaging the soles of your feet first with this oil, then massaging neck and upper and lower leg areas. If you have someone to give you a back massage, this is also helpful.


Itchy:
We have customers who claim the Kaizen Soap works well for terribly itchy skin. We would also suggest the Butter Me Baby Kaizen Shea Butter.


Normal:
You have lots of choices here. You can select by the scents that please you or by healing properties or you may want to prevent some skin problem that has affected other members of your family. We suggest you begin with the most popular soaps in the Just 4 You boxed set.


Occasional Break Outs:
Lavender Rosemary Soap is our answer to acne, this soap contains a special blend of high altitude lavender essential oils that work as an anti-inflammatory so it can shrink the size of pimples and the rosemary has been known for centuries to help balance natural skin oils so acne has less chance of coming back. The soap does not dry out the skin, it is made to help balance your natural skin oils. Wash gently in the morning and the evening, do not skip, and let the lather remain on your face long enough to brush your teeth and then rinse off. Most people see results in less than ten days. This soap is in our Acne Action Trio which we recommend for severe acne and has instructions.


Occasional Flakey Areas:
The body oils we make fresh are made with organic jojoba oil so if you apply this over the course of a few days, these areas should benefit. Three soaps that are especially good for this are Exotic Spice, Gift of Ghana, & Rose Petal Honey. But all our soaps are made with olive and coconut oils so customers love them for mildly dry or patchy skin.


Oily:
We handcraft two fresh soaps every day that are made to help balance skin oils, Lavender Rosemary Soap and Tea Tree Plus Soap. We have two others that are great on sometimes oily skin or combination skin as well, Orange Delight and Triple Cool Mint. All four are in our 4 Oily Skin Box. The soaps can help oily skin become more balanced so that the skin remains normal throughout the day. We recommend that you use the soap every morning and every evening for best results and with all our therapeutic soaps we suggest you bathe in the following manner: Wet your entire face or body down with warm water, then shut the water off and lather up the affected areas first, then lather the remaining areas. Now turn the water back on and rinse off the lather. This way the benefits of the soap can have a chance to be absorbed.

Pain:
If you have severe or constant pain please see your health care provider but if you have periodic aches and pains that over the counter pain medicines work well for, then 2 of our body oils will likely help as well, and without the serious side effects of damaging your renal system, which is typical of all the over the counter medications.

India Rose Body Oil has ginger, lemon and rosewood essential oils in a base of organic jojoba oil. The organic jojoba oil gets absorbed through the skin and moisturizes as it delivers the essential oils to your skin and circulatory system. Ginger will dilate the small capillaries near the surface of the skin, and because there are so many of them, the increase in circulation can be dramatic, thus reducing pain in the area you applied it. Lemon essential oil must be used fresh to help arthritis and rheumatism, and rosewood can help nervous tension. This oil works well for muscle pain and minor joint pain, minor back pain, tendonitis, and helps with muscle cramps as well. We have many customers who use it for carpel-tunnel and typical lower back pain. The India Rose Body Oil is our leading seller for these types of discomfort because we make it fresh for you.

Our second body oil for pain is called Evening Glow Body Oil and it works in a very similar way, but with a different aroma. It has black pepper, pink grapefruit, rose geranium and ylang ylang essential oils in a base of organic jojoba oil. The black pepper essential oil has been used for more than four thousand years to help alleviate pain, especially muscle and arthritis pain. It’s also good to increase stamina. Pink grapefruit essential oil must be used fresh to help muscle fatigue and stiffness. Rose geranium can help blood circulation & neuralgia and is a good anti-inflammatory essential oil. Ylang Ylang stimulates blood circulation and can help relax nervous tension.

Women seem to like the India Rose and more men seem to enjoy the Evening Glow Body Oil. Both are used the same way: in the area of pain gently massage between 15 and 30 drops of the oil until it gets absorbed into the skin, in some people effects can be felt in a few minutes and others take longer, sometimes 20 minutes or more.


Poison Oak/Ivy:
We’re coming out with a new product just for this problem. It’s a combination of three items we already make: Tea Tree Plus Soap to bathe with, Butter Me Baby Lavender Shea Butter to put on the areas, and the Triple Cool Mint Spray to cool the skin and lessen the itching. We’ve had customers who say they are excellent and work very very well.


Pre-Cancerous Skin Lesions:
Before getting an appointment to get them burned or frozen off your skin, try our Kaizen Butter Me Baby Shea Butter on the spot and you can also use our Kaizen Soap to bathe with. We’ve had more than two dozen people amazed that they fell off the following day!


Pregnant:
We strongly recommend the Butter Me Baby Natural Shea Butter as a moisturizer and the Gift of Ghana Soap. Both are excellent for the baby as well. Please avoid all fragrance oils in commercial products of any kind in your home or on your body as they are toxic, and most products that use essential oils are safer but should be used very sparingly.


Psoriasis:
Our Out Smarting Psoriasis Trio is highly recommended. It contains the Gift of Ghana Soap and The Kaizen Soap and the large Butter Me Baby Natural Shea Butter. Each item individually has helped our customers. We’ve had only one return of a Kaizen Soap in over 11 years now.


Rosacea:
Joanne has used this for many years now and her rosacea was so bad that her face would bleed when she washed her face. She has not had an out break in over 13 years now and takes no other medication at all. However, it took about 35 days of using the products as instructed to see results, so patience is required. The trio has a special blend of high altitude lavender essential oils that are anti-bacterial and an excellent natural anti-inflammatory. It contains Lavender Silk Soap, and Lavender Rose anti-Aging Spray and instructions. We’ve never had a return on this product in our years of selling it (only reorders).


Scar Tissue:
We recommend the Butter Me Baby Shea Butter in any scent or natural, and the Gift of Ghana Soap. If the scar tissue is recent (within a year old) you’ll see results usually over a six month period of use. Older scar tissue seems to take longer. When using the Butter, melt some in your hands and apply to the scar each evening.


Sensitive:
Our best products for sensitive skin are Gift of Ghana Soap, Almond Cocoa Butter Soap, Rose Petal Honey Soap, Kaizen Soap and Lavender Silk Soap. Along with those, our Butter Me Baby Natural Shea Butter is very beneficial for sensitive skin as well.


Skin Fungus:
We’ve seen great results with Butter Me Baby Shea Butter in the Tea Tree Plus scent as the tea tree is an anti-bacterial and the lemongrass is an anti-fungal, also great for this is the Tea Tree Plus Soap and the Kaizen Soap.


Stretch Marks:
If the stretch marks are less than 6 months old use the Butter Me Baby Shea Butter in any scent or natural. Each evening, melt some in your hands and apply to them. A great soap you can use is the Gift of Ghana Soap. We are not sure if this can work for older stretch marks, but if you have experience with that, please let us know!


Sunburn:
Chill Out! Spray can reduce the pain and stop the skin from peeling. Spray it on the areas that are burned three or four times a day for best results. The spray is best to use when it’s just too painful to touch. Next day, when the pain has dissipated you can melt some Butter Me Baby in your hands and gently rub into those areas to speed up the healing process. Our best soap to use is our Rose Petal Honey as we crush fresh rose petals to make this soap and rose oil has been shown to regenerate cell tissue. It’s a great soap to use daily for those people who burn easily in the sun.


Sun Damage:
Chill Out! Spray and Rose Petal Honey Soap and the Butter Me Baby Rose Shea Butter are the best products for sunburn and sun damage.


Too Bitchy:
Bad moods often get the better of us and can lead to all types of problems and all levels of suffering.
For some people, they can be a fact of life, and can be a deeply disturbing recurring relationship problem.

We know, we’ve been there.

However, with the right tools, we can get a handle on this issue. Firstly, we strongly recommend meditation techniques to calm the mind, even the old adage to “count slowly to ten before saying anything”. The other things we can do are to use things in our life now, that have been used for thousands of years to calm the spirits and bring a moment of happiness: We’ve handcrafted a room and body spray called Bitch Be Gone and Get A Grip (they are identical except for the label and color of the bottle) and they have helped couples we know stay together…..now available in a 2 oz spray as well as the regular 4 oz spray. Great as a room spray in communal work spaces, for your co-workers and yourself.


Wash Hands Frequently:
Some occupations require it, and if the soap that’s supplied at work is not completely natural and fresh, it will do some damage to your skin and perhaps more serious damage to your long term health as well, so we consider this a serious problem. The worst things in use today are the hand sanitizers which have the most potential for skin damage and other immune damage. (Hand sanitizers are complex synthetics that are engineered to kill living things.) If you are not able to stop using them at work at least wash this off each evening and try to repair the damage done with our Rose Petal Honey Soap or the Kaizen Soap and the Kaizen Butter Me Baby Shea Butter.


Work With Solvents:
Definitely the Glacier & Granite Soap and the Kaizen Soap following a close second. The Butter Me Baby Kaizen Shea Butter as a deep moisturizer as solvents destroy natural skin oils.
