We love it when our town residents support our local business, and find it equally enjoyable for us to support other local businesses in our store. Herb Garden Naturals is one of our latest favorites.
Herb Garden Naturals is a local Stony Creek company who makes soaps, body care products and even all natural bug repellent.
The soaps are made to please most of the senses – they feel good on your skin, are pleasing to the eye, they smell good, but you should probably pass on trying to taste them. They are made with herbs that the owners, Carole Barber and Doug Colter, plant, along with salt from the Dead Sea, special clays, seeds, oats, pumice and essential oils for scents.
They also make creams to soothe dry or sunburned skin, rashes, scars, eczema, burns and more. Many of the creams were designed to cure an ailment of the company’s owner. When it worked to cure the rash, burn or other ailments, they added it to their repertoire.
One interesting product they have it their Jewelweed Juice and soap. Jewel weed is Mother Nature’s response to poison ivy. It usually grows near the poison ivy, and you can crush the plant to rub over the place where poison ivy made skin contact. One of their most popular soaps is made with jewel weed, and they make a jewel weed spray that can be used before and after contact with poison ivy. They also added lavender which acts like and anti-inflammatory, clove for its numbing properties to calm the itch, and tangerine for its cell regeneration properties.
Their Bug Me Not bug spray will be a favorite with our customers, as it keeps the bugs at bay and contains no Deet.
Stop by and check out our Herb Garden Naturals display in the front of the store. Let us know if you think we should expand our offerings to include more creams or other scents of the soap line. We are very excited to be offering their products to our customers.
