Fresh Relief Foot Cream

Katie's introducing the first item in her line of foot care products. Fresh Relief Foot Cream is a wonderfully, rich, fresh & moisturizing cream that includes Avocado oil, Shea oil, Grapeseed oil, Meadowfoam Seed oil, Coconut oil & Camellia Seed oil. This combination of oils results in a cream that is extremely moisturizing without feeling greasy & is quickly absorbed. Made with full cream goat's milk blended with just the right amount of Aloe Vera & Shea oil makes a luxurious cream.

Goat's milk contains natural proteins & triglycerides that are easily absorbed into the skin helping to promote softer skin with a naturally hydrated effect.

Katie's included a healing & refreshing blend of pure Essential oils:
Eucalyptus oil stimulates circulation and is anti-microbial.
Peppermint oil is a fresh wake-you-up oil that relieves itching.
Tea Tree oil is the strongest anti-fungal, and anti-bacterial essential oil.

These pure Essential oils combine to keep your feet healthy & fresh smelling. Treat yourself or a friend to a foot massage with Fresh Relief Foot Cream, then slip on a warm pair of socks. Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhh!!

We'll be in Wilbur on Nov. 15

The craft fair season for 2008 is coming to a close soon. We'll be at Sokol Hall in Wilbur, NE on Sat, Nov 15. So, if your supply of Katie's handmade soap is getting a little low, or you need Christmas gifts, I hope you'll visit us there.

I'm unveiling Katie's Lotion with Aloe & Shea Butter in several scents - Oatmeal Milk & Honey, Lilac, Vanilla Lavender, a combination of Lavender, Ylang Ylang & Myrrh & a few others. This is a wonderfully rich & moisturizing lotion that absorbs really quickly into your skin without feeling oily.

Katie's been busy working on some luxury foot-care products as well. One is a scrub that doesn't leave behind any messy oils on you or your sink or tub. It's scented with the cool & fresh scents of mint & citrus.

To follow up the exfoliating scrub, is an ultra-moisturizing cream made with goat's milk. Why goat's milk? Goat's milk is gentler to the skin, contains caprylic acid which reduces alkalinity to balance the ph of your skin & nourishes it with vitamin A & several B vitamins.

Katie's new lotions & creams don't contain any mineral oils (petroleum products) to clog your pores. All the oils are vegetable oils & are light & quickly absorbed into your skin, so there's no greasy feel.

Highland Spa

I've unveiled my new Highland Spa products on etsy. The mornings are cold now, so fall is definitely in the air.

That makes me want to have long soaks in warm baths, so Katie has created Highland Spa Mineral Bath Salts & a matching Highland Spa soap.

They smell fresh & clean as a sea breeze. Both are 100% natural & loaded with refreshingly clean smelling essential oils like rosemary, spearmint, lemongrass & lavender.
