Mmmmmm……olive oil, avocado oil, cocoa butter, shea butter, coffee, vanilla, ginger, mint, lemongrass, lavender, rosemary, clove, eucalyptus…. sounds pretty yummy, huh? These are just a few of the ingredients included in the all natural products sold at the ultra cool Nourish boutique in Savannah, GA.
I happened to stumble upon this fabulous store the last time I was in Savannah. I was of course impressed with the philosophy and mission of the products being made from all natural ingredients. No parabens, no harsh detergents in these soaps and suds. They say these products nourish your skin inside and out. Well, I am confident in their words since this is a family-run business, which Shoshanna Walker (store owner) tells me her mother started twelve years ago! That’s a lot of soap! So they have spent a lot of time and a ton of research on their products. Not only do they have incredible soaps but they also carry scrubs, soy candles (much better than petroleum-based candles), bath fizzies, lotions, creams, mists, face masks and more.
They also carry some of my favorite Badger products. Badger has now become USDA certified organic! They have awesome balms, oils, baby care and more. I bought their sunscreen from Nourish and LOVED it. I later read a testimonial from a cyclist in California who swears by it. I have seen a ton of press on these products lately, such as Natural Health, Baby Talk, Body and Soul, and surprisingly even in Better Homes and Gardens. So get in on the good stuff!
Now back to the soaps. Shoshanna’s mother started making soaps as a hobby and then it turned into a business. The soaps are by far their best sellers and they even send tons of it to the Virgin Islands. Only the finest ingredients are used in these soaps. They are especially beneficial for persons with conditions such as eczema, psoriasis, and dermatitis. I would also highly recommend soy candles or beeswax candles. They are much cleaner burning than petroleum based candles. I would actually be surprised if anyone even still uses anything but soy or beeswax. It is much better for your family and your indoor air quality. This comes after a major weaning off some very popular petroleum based candles that I used to love. But once I found out the health risks, I always choose soy or beeswax now.
Anyways, I bought some products back in May for my mom and my mother-in-law for Mother’s Day and they ADORED them. This is actually a funny story. I was at the post office trying to mail them and of course one of my boys decided he wasn’t happy standing in line anymore. So I frantically start shoving stuff in the mailing envelopes, starting to sweat since I am now getting the glares from the unfriendly USPS staff. I am just hoping the boys hold out until I get through the line. Whew. I made it, or at least I thought. I did get the packages mailed, but I accidentally mailed my mom’s card and stuff to my mother-in-law and vice versa. Just a little embarrassing. I guess it’s to be expected of someone who occasionally sticks the milk back in the pantry/cabinet instead of the refrigerator and then wakes up in the am to find no milk for hungry babies!
