Avocado- Avocados aren’t just for eating anymore. Avocado oil soap base is extremely moisturizing for very rough and dry skin. This soap hydrates deep down into the deepest layers of skin, which helps prevent water loss due to containing Omega 3 which helps strengthen cell membranes that hold water.

Salts & Exfoliates

New Addition

Dead Sea Salt- Dead Sea salt has wonderful antifungal, antimicrobial, and antibacterial properties that help cleanse and detoxify the pores by driving out oils, dirt and other impurities. This helps to eliminate acne, pimples, blackheads and whiteheads.

The minerals in Dead Sea salt enhance your skin cells metabolism and increase blood flow to the areas you apply it. In this way, Dead Sea salt not only makes you look younger and more hydrated but can reduce the appearance of cellulite.


Epsom (Magnesium sulfate)- It’s a chemical compound made up of magnesium, sulfur, and oxygen. When Epsom salt is dissolved in water, it releases magnesium and sulfate ions. Epsom salt, or magnesium sulfate, have been known to help promote sleep and reduce stress, as well as relieve constipation, reduce soreness in muscles and aide in recovery from injury and helps to reduce pain and swelling.


Pumice Sand- Used in our soaps and scrubs, this fine volcanic ash is ground down into a fine sand to help with mild exfoliation.

Hawaiian black lava salts are perfect to relieve stress and tension and also aides in detoxifying with its minerals and antioxidants. This salt is evaporated in above ground pools that formed naturally from the flow of lava.


Hawaiian Sea salt- Hawaiian sea salt has the ability to deeply cleanse pores, while balancing oil production and appearance of bacteria, this sea salt is like the Black Lava salt minus the black color. This sea salt is not combined with volcanic lava making this salt just as affective as the Black Lava salt and is a finer salt compared to Dead Sea salt.

Proven anti-aging and reparative properties for all skin types, including sensitive skin. Provides skin moisture and hydration with its potent emollient properties.

Loofah- Dead skin cells sometimes clump around the top layer of your skin, making for a duller and less youthful appearance. Loofahs scrub this layer off gently and without disrupting the young and healthy skin cells underneath. We use naturally grown loofahs and place them in our exfoliating soaps to help make your skin glow.


Dried Flowers & Herbs- We use an array of different dried herbs and flowers in our products. Even though these are dried they still carry their natural “essential oils” within them when they are rehydrated or crushed. Mainly used in our scrubs, soaps and bath salts due to being used in water, we may also use some of these herbs and flowers in our room sprays depending on the specifics requested for the sprays.
