A Love for Lavender Oil

A Love for Lavender Oil

Here's another well-researched article that I like, and think you will find beneficial. It's by The New York Times' bestselling author and Huffington Post "Ultimate Wellness Game Changer," Dr. Joseph Mercola, who writes about how and why to use lavender oil. 

His primary motivation is to make you as healthy as you can possibly be, by providing the most up-to-date natural health information and resources that will most benefit you.

I support his philosophy about taking control of your health, and like that a portion of the profits from the natural products he personally recommends goes to support organizations such as the National Vaccine Information Center, Institute for Responsible Technology, Organic Consumers Association, American Holistic Veterinary Medical Foundation, Grassroots Health, Alliance for Natural Health and more.

Everyone at my little company, Ohana Soaps, believes in bath and body products that promote health and well being, in environmentally sustainable products, and in fair trade.

I have always used shea butter when I make the soaps and lotions we offer.

In my research, I saw this article by the American Shea Butter Institute, and want to share it with you.

The Creation of Ohana Soaps

Posted by Susan Gresowski on


First I should introduce myself. My name is Susan and I am the owner, artist and creator of Ohana Soaps. I am a wife and mother of two boys (well, I guess, men now.)

It's been said that if you do what you love, you will never work a day in your life. I love making soap. Determining the ingredients, fragrances, colors and designs are things I really enjoy. I am blessed to have a wonderful husband that understands me and supports me in my endeavors.  

So that being said, building an online store, is scary. I will ask that you have some patience with me in regards to computers. And I am hoping you will love my soaps as much as I love making them for you.
