PRODUCT CARE & INFORMATION
Why did the products turned bad before the best by date?
Our products are all natural and do not contain preservatives to hold them for longer shelf life. As such, we only offer dry products (powders), in balms or oil form, and solids (soaps), and no liquids simply because once water (liquid) is added in a product, they will require a suitable preservative. That said, products can still turn bad without proper care. Keep them away from sunlight and heat, always use dry utensils to dispense them, and never allow water to be in contact with the products. Best to refrigerate them to extend the shelf life especially in tropical weather.
Why is my soap turning soft and melting?
Our soaps are handcrafted using oils as the base, and no hardeners or fillers. As such, they tend to be softer than commercial beauty bars. Cut the soap into half and use half first. After using, dry the soap thoroughly either by leaving them to dry hanging in our nylon soap bag, or our wooden soap dish with plenty of drainage. Do not leave soap to soak in water, and leave them in too hot places.
Why is my soap not lathering well?
As with natural handmade soaps, we do not use artificial surfactants (which bubbles easily but it's really bad for the skin). Therefore, they do not lather as well as commercial beauty bars. We recommend you to try our nylon soap bag with the soap for a better bathing experience, as the soap bag helps to boost the lather, and at the same time you can dry the soap inside the bag too.
I have been using commercial soaps and it’s drying for my skin, I don’t like. What’s the difference between handmade soaps and commercial soaps?
Commercial soaps oftentimes had the glycerin (by-product) component removed, which makes the soap even more drying as glycerin is a natural humectant and draws moisture to the skin. Apart from that, commercial soaps often contain a load of artificial ingredients, harsh chemicals and preservatives. On the other hand, handmade soaps are made using the traditional method of saponification – adding sodium hydroxide (lye) to fatty acids (oils) in order to form soap and glycerin (which is not removed, hence that is why handmade soaps are very moisturizing for the skin). In addition, there are a lot of skin-loving ingredients such as plant oils, botanicals, clays added in, and we most definitely do not use chemicals, preservatives, additives or fillers.
Why does my soap contain sodium hydroxide? Is it safe to use?
All true handmade soaps are made with sodium hydroxide (solid bar) or potassium hydroxide (liquid soap). Soaps are made by combining lye (sodium hydroxide) with water and then mixing it with fatty acids (oils and butters) in the process called saponification. Once this process is completed, the lye and oil molecules are combined with each other and chemically changed to soap and glycerin. There will no longer be free floating lye in the formula, and no lye remains in the finished product. How does soap work? Soap cleans by acting as a surfactant and emulsifier. It can surround oil, making it easier to rinse it away with water.
My balm melted / froze. Can they still be used? What should I do?
No worries, they definitely still can be used. The balms melted simply because we do not use hardeners or stabilizers, and we use beeswax as a form of natural hardener. If it's too warm, the balm tends to melt - simply pop it in the freezer for 15-30min until it's solidified again. If it's too cold, the balm will start to harden - just put it out in room temperature until it's back to normal. Store balms away from direct sunlight and warm places.

What are essential oils?
Essential oils are generally the essence (precious oils) of the plant / fruit that is derived through means of steam distillation / cold pressed methods. Example, the essential oils of lavender is derived using steam distillation method of harvested lavender buds (the typical aroma of lavender that you can smell is actually the lavender oil secreted from lavender buds). Different essential oils bring different health benefits to the body and mind.
Where are your essential oils from and are they really genuine?
Our essential oils are sourced from Australia or USA, depending on the variant. Yes, our essential oils are 100% pure and concentrated, and we do not dilute or add fillers in them.
How do I use the essential oils?
- Carrier Oil / Lotion / Cream : Mix in the recommended amount of essential oils into carrier oil / lotion / cream and use as general face or body moisturizer.
- Bath Water : Add a few drops of essential oil into warm bath water.
- Candle Burner : Add a few drops of essential oil into some water in a candle burner dish, light a tealight candle and warm up the burner. Do not leave burner unattended and watch when water levels drop.
- Electric Aroma Diffuser : Add a few drops of essential oil into aroma diffuser and switch on to enjoy the benefit. Use on a daily basis or whenever necessary. Store product in dry conditions away from water and direct sunlight to extend lifespan. Do not leave burners and diffusers running in close proximity with flammable items, children and pets without adult supervision.
Can I use the essential oils directly on my skin?
Absolutely not. Do not apply undiluted essential oils directly onto skin. Always remember that all essential oils must be diluted with a base prior to usage on the skin as the concentration is very high and potent, that it has the possibility to cause irritation and adverse reaction to certain people's skin in its most concentrated form. Example 1 drop of lemon essential oil is equivalent to about 20 lemon fruits. Some essential oils such as peppermint, cinnamon and clove can be irritable to the skin in high doses and concentration. Method of essential oils usage is through topical application, steam inhalation and aromatherapy.
Can I use the essential oils on my baby?
We do not recommend for young infants and babies, since neonatal skin does not mature until three months of age, it is more sensitive and more permeable to essential oils. A newborn is also less equipped to deal with any adverse effects than an adult because of lower metabolic capacity, i.e., enzymes present in lower concentrations. As always, please consult your doctor as we are not medical practitioners and are unable to advice.
How do I dilute the essential oils?
- Children / Sensitive Skin (0.5% -1.0%) : 5-10 drops of Essential Oils per 50ml of carrier oil
- Adults / Normal Skin (2.5%) : 25 drops of Essential Oils per 50ml of carrier oil
- Bath Waters / Steam Inhalation : 2-10 drops of Essential Oils
- Candle Burners / Electric Aroma Diffusers : 6-8 drops of Essential Oils
Note: 1ml = 20 drops
