Natural Face Care

Gentle Skin Cleanser

No lye, sulfates, dyes, synthetic preservatives or fragrances.

This gentle, non-drying cleanser is perfect for all skin types, including oily, sensitive, and mature skin. Lavender and tea tree essential oils contribute to the antiseptic and skin soothing quality of this cleanser. It can be used full strength, but is recommended to dilute with 50 – 67% purified or distilled water and use with a self-foaming container, substantially increasing your time between soap purchases!

Ingredients: Purified water, decyl polyglucose (renewable source, earth friendly), vegetable glycerin, citric acid, xanthan gum, and essential oils of tea tree and lavender

Aloe-Hempseed Oil Cleansing Solution

A nourishing alternative to traditional soap and water based cleansers.  The idea behind cleansing delicate facial skin with oil based products is that ‘like attracts like’. Your skin’s sebum, which traps dirt and toxins of daily life, and clogs pores, is an oily wax-like substance and is drawn to other oils (lipophilic) and repelled by water (hydrophobic), making oil cleansers an effective vehicle for removing makeup, grime, and ‘spent’ sebum without drying and irritating gentle skin. This oil based facial cleanser is full of nutrients and healing ingredients and can double as a moisturizer.

Ingredients: *Aloe vera, *castor oil, *hemp seed oil, * jojoba oil, *argan  oil, Tamanu oil and *essential oils of geranium, palma rosa, lime, and lemon (*Organic ingredient)

Cleansing Grains

Mix with water, green tea, aloe & honey (oily or acneic), or cleansing oil (dry or mature) for a weekly treatment that cleanses, exfoliates, and draw impurities.

Kaolin clay is a very light clay that gently absorbs and draws impurities, oatmeal is emollient and softens the skin, poppy and flax seed add essential fatty acids and exfoliation properties, floral powders are healing, anti-inflammatory, and slightly astringent.

Ingredients: Kaolin clay, *colloidal oatmeal, ground *poppy seeds, ground *flax seed, and ground *lavender, *rose, and *elder flowers (*Organic ingredient)

Toning & Firming Treatments

Aloe Neroli Toner

A light, non-drying astringent which helps tone delicate skin.  Also soothing and healing to minor sun and wind burned skin. Suitable for all Skin types, including sensitive.

Aloe vera offers both protection from environmental elements and cooling, healing properties to skin. Neroli blossom and orange water distillates (hydrosols) are slightly astringent and firming to the skin. Lavender and geranium essential oils offer skin healing and relief from dry itchy, inflamed skin.

Organic Ingredients: Aloe vera (stabilized with sorbic and ascorbic acids, and thickened with an alginate derivative), neroli and blood orange plant distillates (hydrosols), witch hazel extract, vegetable glycerin, grain alcohol, and essential oils of lavender and geranium

Skin Care Repair Toner & Soother

Facial Steam Herbs

Sold by the ounce to use as a steam or compress.  Facial Steams impart vital moisture and nutrients into the skin, open clogged pores, and increase circulation and perspiration, releasing toxins and impurities. Finally, this treatment softens and plumps skin, reducing the appearance of wrinkles.

Moondrop Herbal Facial Steam blends start with a base of organic: Green tea, calendula, elder flower, marshmallow leaf, and lavender – and finish with additional organically grown herbs chosen specifically for dry, oily, or mature skin types:

  • Additional Herbs for Dry Skin: Chamomile and rose petals
  • Additional Herbs for Oily Skin: Raspberry leaf, sage, and rosemary
  • Additional Herbs for Mature Skin: Red clover, lemon verbena, and linden leaf & flower

Bright Eyes Herbal Compress Blend

Combats under-eye puffiness and soothes red, tired, and irritated eyes – and gives you a reason to take a well deserved rest at the same time!

Steep approximately 3 TBS compress herbs in 20-24 ounces of just boiled water. Let steep for a minimum of 15 minutes. Filter herbs and drink 6-8 ounces of the infusion while waiting for the rest to cool to room or slightly refrigerated temperature. Dip a cotton cloth in the cooled infusion, wring out slightly and place over closed eyes. Recline and rest for 20 minutes. Alternatively, make tea bags by placing herbs in two muslin bags before steeping, using the bags in place of the cloth.

Ingredients: Astringent and healing herbs of organic chamomile, yarrow, and linden

Facial Moisturizers

Aloe-based Roll on Deodorant

In addition to the assault on delicate skin through the use of potentially very harmful chemical ingredients, aluminium-based antiperspirants work by causing inflammation to your sweat ducts, prohibiting the removal of waste and toxins your body is trying to release. Natural deodorants are not designed to stop perspiration, but will inhibit the forming of bacteria that causes underarm odor.  The aloe in this deodorant is cleansing, protective, and kind to the skin.  The properties in the essential oils deodorize and help inhibit bacterial growth.

Ingredients: *Aloe vera (with Sorbic and Ascorbic acids, and alginate seaweed), *grain alcohol, *witch hazel,  and *essential oils of lavender, tea tree, and patchouli (*organic ingredient)

Foot Soak Herbs

This combination of herbs is amazing and fantastical.  Revives tired, overworked feet. Just try it in the spring, after your first trip out to the garden to weed – you know, when you contort your feet in any manner of bends and stretches for which there is absolutely no need any other time of the year. . . .it is magic I tell you.

Use 1/2 cup of herbs per quart of boiling water. Steep 20 minutes to 1 hour, preparing a strong infusion. Strain herbs (optional). Pour tea in foot bath container and add additional warm water to fill well above ankles and maintain water temperature of 100-110 degrees. Soak feet for minimum of 10 minutes. If cool foot bath is desired, prepare as above, let tea cool completely before straining & add to cool bath.

Ingredients: Organic: *Lavender, *peppermint, *rosemary, *calendula, and *fennel seed (*organic ingredient)

Coco Bee Deep Moisture Bar

The ingredients in this moisture bar are meant to smooth, heal, and protect.  This is a wonderful moisturizer for rough hands, cuticles, heels, and any rough patch of skin.

Simple Comforts at The Cottage

Cold Care Salve

One of my most popular products!  The ingredients in this salve are powerful at breaking up congestion, yet safe enough to use on gentle skin such as across bridge of nose, temples, and forehead to alleviate sinus pain and congestion.  I have a few customers who swear by it to alleviate chapped lips and I have had success clearing up minor earaches. Yes, works like ‘vicks’ but smells much less like a medicine cabinet.
