I had the absolute pleasure of talking to a sweet lady named Tammy who together with her family owns Maple Hill Farm where they have all sorts of fresh meats, jams & jellies, eggs and so much more. Along with all the fresh produce they offer, Tammy hand makes Organic Sheep Milk Soap and Eco-friendly Soy Candles that I had the pleasure of trying out.
The Sheep Milk Soaps are made with, of course sheep milk from Tammy's sheep along with organic coconut oil and natural essential oils and botanicals-- who wouldn't want to have these goodies in their soap?! Each bar is handcrafted in small batches to ensure high quality and allowed to cure for a minimum of 4 weeks before they are ready to sell.
Because I am pregnant my scent of smells are on crazy mode to the point where I had to replace a lot of my cosmetics, cleaning products etc. So I decided to go with the lemongrass scent and I'm not one bit sorry I chose that because it smells so fresh and invigorating that when I felt nauseous and used the soap, the nausea went away. And to top off the great scent and the fact that it's all natural, it left my skin feeling so soft and moisturized. See what other scents Tammy has to offer at her Etsy store.
One thing you probably didn't know about me is that I absolutely love candles and I recently learned about Eco-friendly clean burning soy candles and after trying the Maple Hill Farm candles I was sold. What are the benefits of soy candles? They burn clean, which means soy candles don't increase the CO2 levels in the air like paraffin candles do, they burn longer, and they are non-toxic. My favorite part about Tammy's candles are the different and unique scents she offers like, Strawberry Sangria, Watermelon, Honeysuckle, Blueberry Cheesecake, Strawberry Shortcake-- just listing these is making me hungry. I went with the Mango Tangerine and let me tell you, it brought me back to a breeze day at the beach in Punta Cana where John and I spent our honeymoon. The scent of this candle is amazing, let's just take a moment to image how fresh squeezed orange juice smells like mixed with sweet ripe mango... Yeah, that's what I thought. Oh but the best part is, if Tammy doesn't have a fragrance you like in her store she will take special orders! I will for sure return to her store for some sweet smelling treats.
