    Calming candlelight. Warm (not hot) soy wax to moisturize the soul. Light a soy candle, enjoy its mystery.

Traditional waxes are paraffin (not recommended), and the lovely beeswax . (always a wonderful...

What can I say? Our argan oil IS the absolute best. Last month, when our argan oil order arrived to Canada from Morocco, Health Canada decided to hold it for testing.  “Why now?", I pondered.  "This is a first."  The answer will become clear in a moment.

Sugar scrubs can be delightful for the whole body, but I particularly like the idea for the lips. Whatever we touch to our lips, we taste, so it might as well be pleasant.

This was our first and most successful visit to the Filberg Festival. (Comox, Vancouver Island) Thank you Vancouver Islanders. We loved our booth in the woods and who could not love you? At this fabulous festival I heard a ‘first account’ tamanu story. Since the oil itself is fairly new to Canada, we are all still learning about its miraculous properties.

It was like a vacuum had sucked away all his moisture, leaving his lips dry, cracked, and bleeding.
