January has showered us with a collection of romantic pink and gray Treasury Lists. Below are my three favorite ones – all relishing classic rose tones and tender pastel grays.
Imagine this: you come across an interesting soap blog or video. It is all great up until they get to the coloring part. And then they say they use artificial dyes in their soap. Poof – I feel deflated. You go to the trouble of making handmade soap with natural ingredients, only to color it with something artificial.
Early into my soapmaking, I decided that MY soap was going to be as natural, gentle and skin-loving as possible. Maybe it’s because I am vegan, and tend to pay attention to what’s going onto my body as well as into it. Or maybe http://www.mindanews.com/buy-accutane/ it’s because of my background in the beauty industry and skincare, where I was made only too aware of how many people develop intolerance to fragrances, colorants and preservatives.
Regardless of how it came to be, I only add good stuff to the soaps I make. Clays are so fun to play with: like French Green Clay, or French Pink. The former is an excellent detoxifying agent for oily skin types, the latter – for dry, sensitive or mature. Both improve blood circulation, absorb oil and toxins and are rich in trace elements.
Hi, I’m Tanya
I create all natural perfume, vegan soap and simple, nourishing skincare. Ravenscourt Apothecary was created in 2013 in London shortly after I relocated to Europe from the United States. New in the UK, I was at a crossroads and craving a creative outlet. My heart was set on serving the world one bar of vegan soap and bottle of perfume at a time.
Today, I live in Devon, England with my husband Harry and our cat. When I’m not thinking of new natural fragrances, I can be found practicing yoga, baking sourdough bread or photographing my furry son (who is called Bergamot after my best-loved perfume note!)
