What is a ' cold-crafted' natural soap?
The Cold Crafted method of creating luxury soaps is a time honored traditional practice of soapcrafting that takes fresh, specially chosen flower and plant oils, gently warmed to their natural melting points, and then slowly mixes them with an alkaline solution. As the mixture thickens and cools pure essential oils, flower extracts and other beneficial ingredients are added to produce a final product that is gentle to the skin. Because no additional heat is applied once the oils have been melted, this unique method of soapcrafting is often called the " cold crafted' process.
What ingredients are in your Healing Blends Products?
The finest quality essential oils, organic herbs and flowers, therapeutic mineral clays and food grade vegetable oils are used in Healing Blends products. When we say 100% natural, we mean 100% natural. Unlike, ours, most commercial soaps including many of the world's most popular brands contain synthetic fragrance, colourants, preservatives, foaming boosters and animal products. Our oils are 100% aromatherapy grade essential oils.
Why are your soaps so gentle and nondrying?
Healing Blends traditional Cold Crafted soaps are also unique in that they contain ZERO free alkali...unlike commercial soaps, which usually contain 0.1%-1% - another reason why even the most expensive French Milled soaps are still drying to the skin. As a result our soaps have a PH range of 8 - 8.5 while most commercial soaps range from 9.5 - 11.5!
Why is a ' Cold Crafted' soap superior to commercial soap?
Commercially extruded and glycerin type soaps- even the most expensive ' French Triple Milled' soaps - are created by employing a production method that applies high temperatures, pressure and exzcessive amounts of alkaline solution to speed up the soap saponification reaction in ordre to make more soap faster. Unfortunately, natural flower and plant essences are sensitive to heat , light and other factors and are damaged when subjected to this very harsh manufacturing process. THe result is that the active beneficial components within each natural ingredient are destroyed, thereby loosing the very properties and reason for choosing them in the first place.
It is also important to note that commercial soaps are usually made with ingredients that have been decolorized adn deodorized to make them cosmetically neutral and more appealing. This very 'refinement' neutralizes their beneficial properties as well.
Aren't synthetic fragrance, preservatives and colourants generally regarded as safe by most goverment departments?
While this is true, consider this. You wake up in the morning and grab your favourite shampoo( full of synthetic fragrance, colorants, preservatives and foaming agents).
Perhaps you also use a hair conditioner ( again full of all the aforementioned agents ). Do you use a shower gel to wash? More synthetics. Even you well-known brand of soap is likely to have at the very least synthetic fragrance and colorants. After showering, your skin may feel a little dry so you apply body and hand moisturizer - more synthetics and preservatives....that stays on your skin! After subjecting your body to so many synthetic skin irritants on a daily basis it's perhaps not so surprisng why most of the world's population suffers from some degree of skin allergy. And that's not all! we haven't even mentioned what remains on your clothes after they've been washed with synthetic detergents.

If you haven't already indulged yourself in the soft creamy caress of our natural " Cold Crafted' soap, then we invite you to experience the natural advantage for yourself.

REIKI TM
"Just for today, do not worry.
Just for today, do not anger.
Honor your parents, teachers, and elders.
Earn your living honestly.
Show gratitude to everything"
 
Dr. Mikao Usui  
Reiki is an ancient form of Eastern hands on healing. Though it is said to have its roots in Tibet, the form as we know it today comes to us from Japan through the works of Dr. Mikao Usui.
Reiki is based on the belief that all life forms are imbued and connected through a universal life force which is vital to our wellbeing. When one’s life force energy is at a lull, they are more likely to be susceptible to ‘ dis-ease’ or stress .
For those seeking to improve their health or to be healed, Reiki involves tapping into this life force or state of unconditional love via a Reiki Practitioner. Through the transfer of this life force energy from the practitioner, the body’s natural ability to heal itself is enhanced as its energy is brought back into balance.
It is worthy to note that Reiki is being offered in many hospitals nationwide as a pre- and post surgery option. Both patient and practitioner site reduced levels of stress , increased calm and a decrease in the amount of pain medication needed following surgical procedure.
Reiki also promotes a deep state of relaxation, which helps to reduce and even eliminate pain. It is a totally non-invasive treatment modality. It is also said to have significant effects on improving immune system function, reducing the side effects of radiation and chemotherapy, reducing recovery time from illnesses , clearing the body of toxins , fostering spiritual and creative growth, and improving the effectiveness of other
treatments and therapies.
As Reiki’s goal is to restore health through the balance and connection to life force energy, we believe products enhanced with Reiki energy increases its benefits . Therefore,Healing Blends Reiki Enhanced Products ( TM ) are imbued with Reiki energy and come to you with the highest degree of universal life force energy and unconditional love . From our hearts to yours, for the healing and nurturing of your body, mind and spirit.
