Personal preference aside, there are key differences to these two cleansers.

Body washes gained popularity in the 80's and 90's, but recently bar soaps have made a come back, particularly natural, hand-crafted soaps.


Large production commercial body washes are primarily composed of water and surfactants, like sodium laureate sulfate, sodium laurel sulfate, and other chemicals. Although these products can appear silky, pearly and creamy looking, surfactants can strip the skin of its natural oils, leaving it dehydrated, dry and tight.

In the past, bar soaps got a bad rap for their high PH, however, well-crafted soaps are made with skin-loving saponified oils of olive, sunflower, coconut, etc. These excellent naturally sulfate-free cleansers blended with nourishing ingredients such as Shea Butter, and Aloe Vera creates a product that is balanced, moisturizing, and great for most skin types, including Psoriasis and Eczema.


One of my favorite properties about hand made bar soaps is how superior they are at exfoliating and removing dead skin cells. You know the dreaded "soap scum" that annoys us so much? Well, that happens when using bar soaps versus store body washes because the base ingredients used to create hand crafted soaps naturally exfoliate and remove more dead skin cells than watered down commercial body washes. To me, that healthier skin is worth a bit of rinsing of the tub or shower.


Whatever your preference, remember, soap kills germs, bacteria and many viruses. Wash your hands often to keep skin clean, and follow with a healthy, plant-based moisturizer to keep your skin hydrated.

Did you know that many essential oils of therapeutic quality can repel insects just as well as chemical and DEET repellents?

The right blend of oils such as:

  • Lemongrass

  • Citronella

  • Peppermint

  • Geranium

  • Lavender

…. and many other beneficial essential oils are tremendous in helping to fend off offensive and even dangerous insects.

Essential oils as repellents have gained popularity because of their safety and health benefits. Also, many repel multiple varieties of insects, for example, Citronella and Peppermint are both great for repelling Mosquitoes, Ants and Spiders.


The same such oils will dissipate and/or lose potency over time as they blend with the natural oils in your skin, and they require reapplication about every 2 hours or so, which isn’t a bad thing, since they are also very beneficial to the skin and body overall. 

Others, like Lemongrass can last for 4-6 hours. The perfect blend of essential and carrier oil is the key to a great overall insect repellent that is both effective and safe.


We blend our Bug Be Gone with a balanced blend of more than a dozen different repellent, therapeutic grade essential oils with soothing Aloe Vera and other moisturizers that smell great to us, but terrible to those pesky mosquitoes and other insects.

No insect repellent is 100%, and you must always be careful and mindful of insect activity and aggression around you when outdoors.

Toner is best suited for oily, acne-prone and combination skin types.

What are some of the benefits?

· Restore PH balance to the skin

· Remove trace impurities

· Shrink pores

· Calm oil glands

· Add needed hydration

· Quick skin refresher

Toner is often the missing element in the regimen for those with oily and acne-prone skin. Even with the best face washes and cleansers, a good toner can make the difference between having balanced skin and struggling to control excess oil throughout the day. I recommend using a cotton pad rather than a cotton ball, as cotton balls tend to soak up too much product, resulting in unnecessary waste of toner.

Consider adding an alcohol-free, high quality toner to your next skin care shopping trip – I am sure you will be glad you did.
