Soap Cleanse

Are you ready to experience a Soap Cleanse? Let’s look at what a whole body focused experience really is.

Often people come here to seek out Mushrooms, and so they should. Not only do we offer a line of supportive mushrooms from Real Mushrooms, a family owned company. But, we also offer the beautiful Amanitas, an iconic historical mushroom.

Through out my SHOP, in my life, or if you ever connect with me, you will hear me talk about a Whole Body Focused Experience. When diving into the deepness of my spirit, I realized there was so much more to me, to us, to our BEING, than we have been led to believe. I’m not trying to lead you down a rabbit hole of conspiracies. Rather, I want you to find your own path. To follow your intuition, your GUT. To open your eyes to what is true, and begin to cleanse and purge yourself so you can REALIGN with your WHOLE BODY, your WHOLE BEING.


Understand that I am swimming in these waters with you. Exploring the mysteries of our ancient world. I am not an expert to anyone, but rather a guide to an AWAKENING of your own ROOTS.

Soap, is the tip of the sphere in cleansing.

When trying to attain alignment you must first evaluate yourself.

What’s not aligned and why?

I am going to assume if your here, your further into your journey than most.

You have chosen the DEEP DIVE.

Your craving what your Spirit Longs for, Connection.

If this is true, your already aware that you are made of Vibration, Color, Energy, and Light.

You are LOVE.

In order to connect back to these Roots, you must cleanse yourself of what brings these elements down.

To no surprise, everything has a frequency, an energy, a power to Heal or Destroy. Elevate or Deflate.

Let’s look at an example of why I use Essential Oils, and other plants in my Handcrafted Soap.

Essential Oils not only smell incredible, but they actually entrain the cells of the body to increase their vibratory rate. People with higher vibrations experience more joy, peace, relational happiness and feelings of abundance.

Frequency

Frequency refers to a measurement. Specifically, the rate at which vibration occurs. Think about tuning a radio to different frequencies (i.e., radio wave vibrations in the air) which will let you listen to a different channel. The frequency of the human body can be measured in a number of ways, but usually its obtained with a specialized tool called a biofeedback machine. These devices most often operate by detecting skin temperature, muscle tension and/or brain wave activity. In general, a healthy human body has a frequency of 62-72MHz when healthy. This drops to 57-60MHz if you have a cold or flu, cancer may appear at 42 MHz and the death process begins at 25 MHZ. Other things that lower one’s frequency are alcohol, drugs, dehydration, sugar, processed foods, and lack of sleep.

According to researchers in Washington using Taino Technology, the vibrational frequency of essential oils are the highest of any natural substance currently known to man. With this in mind, it stands to reason that through topical application of pure essential oils you can raise your vibratory quality.

As an added bit of information other things that increase frequency are sunshine, meditation, spending time with our pets, being with loved ones, productivity, exercise, gratitude, green leafy vegetables, fermented foods, fresh berries, sprouts, herbs, spices, beans, legumes, and pure teas from plants and mushrooms.

What’s the connection?

So basically, MUSHROOMS, PLANTS, Animals, Food and the Products we use, MATTER TO OUR SPIRIT.

Consumption of energy is found everywhere.

In terms of Food, what are you eating? Does your blood type matter? Food is also Knowledge, no? What are you INTAKING into your most precious VESSEL, yourself, your flesh.

The vicinity of other Beings (positive or negative) can effect our outer energy as well, as the inner most parts of us.

Water can be healing or saturated with toxins that deplete us.

Products we use daily with out second thought like soap, toothpaste, mouthwash, gels, creams, lotions, laundry detergent, dish soap, hand soap, hand sanitizer, come on now, you list them for yourself. It’s long. But it’s also something you do EVERY DAY. It’s either bringing your vibration up or down. Additionally, your Money (your time mover), is used for these products. Why are you not questioning if they are aligned with your beliefs of living a whole body focused experience.

Whole Body Focused Experience

In order to truly live a Whole Body Focused Experience, you must allow your Spirit to lead your Flesh, rather than your Flesh leading your Spirit. AHA!

My hand crafted soap brings to you a SOAP CLEANSE like no other. A unique gift of LOVE filled Magic. And this isn’t about me, buy my soap, this is about you choosing for you! If your up for it, LEARN how to make soap.

I know we live in a TIME of Convenience and We want it now. Rather, reflect on what experiences you do want to live in now, and in the future.

“This isn’t judgment. This is a PAUSE to your CALL.”

‚ÄĒ Founder

What is your TIME worth. What do you WANT to SPEND it on.

That’s truly your most valuable asset. As you recall this Flesh has limits, it comes to an end. Sometimes unexpectedly. So how do you LIVE in your experience? When you align yourself with your Higher Power (Spirit). You Pause and Reflect (Meditate). You Cleanse yourself daily and you choose every time what you do. Free Will is amazing, what a gift.

If you choose, I don’t have time for soap making. You rather write, sing, dance, help others, cook (maybe food is your jam).

That’s okay too. That’s why I make it. ūüėČ you can read more about that in my SOAP FAQ.

When I started this journey

I realized working with my hands was a gift. The Plants began to speak to me. I already had a love affair for art. I began peeling back the layers of myself. Realizing that I wanted more for my family, my tribe, myself. Soap making, and healing balms became part of life. I’m excited when I learn about a new plant and how it connects to the inner most parts of us.

Each Soap Batch, is handcrafted from start to finish with carefully chosen ingredients. Everything from the location, the water, the plants or mushrooms used, the color, the scent, the Name of the Soap bars, the people involved, it all plays a role in making these soap bars unique and magical. I’m not a factory pumping them out for convenience and money. I’m sure you can find other amazing hand crafted soaps as well. My soap is meant for a true Soap Cleanse.

My Soap is simple, yet complex. Castile old timey bars that have leveled up with unique infusions, beautifully swirled spices, and other natural organic matter and essential oils.

When I Paused and Reflected on Soap Cleanse. It washed over me with Spirit and Truth.

Cleanse

¬†¬†(klńēnz)

tr.v. cleansed, cleans·ing, cleans·es

The definition of Cleanse according to thefreedictoinary.com

When it comes to taking a shower, or taking a long soak, I have learned to enjoy this stolen moment. Yes, it’s about cleansing yourself from physical dirt. But, it’s also about the cleansing of the yuck. The muck of bad, negative vibrations you attracted and allowed to attach to yourself . Its a fresh start. A moment to pause, to rejuvenate, take in healing water. Why shouldn’t your Soap bar help transcend you to a better atmosphere. Why shouldn’t your Soap Cleanse meet all of what your whole body needs.

What my soap represents.

A connection to Pause and to Cleanse.

A moment of acknowledgment.

Not the problem, but a solution for Elevation.

When your using my soap, weather its to wash your hands, hair, or body, It’s passively diffusing Higher Vibrations.

It’s energetics are seeping into your pores.

It’s creating an awareness of your purity.

Of your beautiful Beyond Spirit.

Of your free Will to choose.

A connection back to nature, back to your ROOTS.

Your a Blessing Beyond, regardless of your choices.

Say YES, I choose a whole body focused experience too! Yes, this matters!

Are you ready to AWAKEN to your Soap Cleanse?

Plants we love – Part 2

Hibiscus, Lavender, and Red Clover

Here you will find Herbs we have foraged and learned about. We love using these herbs for our Soap infusions. We also enjoy them for teas, oxymels, rinses, and infusing into balms.

Hibiscus

When you think of Hibiscus, colorful bright flowers come to mind. While it is an exotic plant that‚Äôs stunningly beautiful, it also contains antioxidants, vitamins, minerals and malic acid, all of which greatly benefit the skin.

  • It protects skin from environmental aggressors: Hibiscus is rich in antioxidants that protect skin from free radical damage, preventing the appearance of premature aging.¬†¬†¬†
  • ¬†It‚Äôs deeply moisturizing: Hibiscus boasts a naturally high mucilage content, a sticky substance produced by plants to help them retain water. Applying Hibiscus topically enhances the skin‚Äôs ability to retain moisture too, leaving it feeling hydrated, soft and supple.¬†¬†
  • ¬†It soothes sensitive skin: Hibiscus also has an anti-inflammatory effect and helps to soothe skin inflammation and irritation.¬†¬†¬†
  • ¬†It has anti-aging benefits: Hibiscus flower helps prevent enzymes from breaking down elastin, the protein that is responsible for skin‚Äôs firmness and plumpness. The result? Skin looks healthier and younger for longer.
  • Egyptians used Hibiscus tea to lower body temperature, treat heart and nerve diseases, and as a diuretic to increase urine production. In Africa, tea was used to treat constipation, cancer, liver disease, and cold symptoms. Pulp made from the leaves was applied to the skin to heal wounds.¬†¬†
  • Protect & Boost your immune system. Lower cholesterol & manage blood pressure. Support proper digestion.

This makes for a great soap, and an antiaging topical. As a tea its a great substitute for elderberry, to help fight a viral infection. A fun way to use it is to sweeten with honey and make popsicle sticks.

Lavender

Although ancient this plant has made a name for itself in our modern society.

Lavender has relaxing aromatic properties that are great to help clam and soothe nerves. Even simply diffusing the herb in the air brings a sense of peace to one’s environment. It contains natural anti inflammatory properties making it great topically or internally. There are many applications for Lavender. You can string a bouquet together and hang upside down to dry in your home. Allowing for a passive diffusion. You can add the dried leaves to a satchel for a dream pillow, or to a potpourri bowl . Use tea bags for an eye soother remedy. Lavender is a great addition to food, smoothies, or even a yummy coconut ice cream. A popsicle stick made from Lavender is great for soothing sore throats as well. You can also enjoy it in a bath with Epsom salt or a foot soak. Lastly a traditionally made cup of tea can always help calm nerves and restore balance to your being.

Since biblical times, it has been highly regarded for its fragrance and medicinal benefits.

Lavender combined with the lactic acid in goat milk has also been shown to promote better skin tone and assist in lightening dark spots. which is why we made a beautiful lavender goats milk soap.

With natural anti-inflammatory properties it is successful in soothing painful sunburnt skin, dermatitis and eczema.

Proven to shrink blood vessels and minimize redness, lavender is still gentle enough for rosacea sufferers to use.

Its ability to minimize our skin’s reaction to ultraviolet light also means that sun related flair ups could be reduced. Some studies suggest it also reduces fine lines and wrinkles.

We love using Lavender in our soaps. We extract it into Olive oil, for topicals and soaps. And then add Lavender Essential Oil as well. Our current favorite is our Activated Creamy Lavender Soap. We used raw cows milk, and activated Charcoal to really boost the nourishing and detoxifying effects.

Here is some more information on Lavender Tea.

REd Clover

Red Clover.. I know they don’t even look Red! You can also find them in white. These are commonly known as a weed, or used for Hay to feed cattle. (which is where we found ours, from a cattle farmer in Minnesota. But you can find them everywhere)

Red clover is a source of many nutrients including calcium, chromium, magnesium, niacin, phosphorus, potassium, thiamine, and vitamin C. Red clover is a rich source of isoflavones (chemicals that act like estrogens and are found in many plants).

In other words Red Clover can benefit in the aid of treating…

Cardiovascular Health

Menopause, hot flashes, cancer,

Osteoporosis, as an ointment it can help treat eczema, psoriasis, and other Rashes.

Here is some interesting reading on RED CLOVER if you care to learn more.

Plants we love – Part 1

Golden Rod, Feverfew, & Mugwort

Golden Rod
Mugwort

Golden Rod

As a tea this herb is a detoxifier, sore throat reliever, effective in the prevention of urinary tract infections, and It can even help relieve muscle pain. Infuse it into local honey and Apple Cider Vinegar and you have a supportive “Oxymel” to help alleviate allergies. (most people think they are allergic to Golden Rod. However it’s almost always, Ragweed, which looks similar and can grow together. If your one of those that believe your allergic to Golden Rod, rethink this plant. A Golden Rod “Oxymel” is also great as an expectorant, in other words it facilitates the secretion or expulsion of phlegm, and mucus. A Golden Rod tea compress can be used to help alleviate a fever. And a poultice can be made to treat wounds.

Mugwort

Most known for inducing “Lucid Dreaming”. Abilities to stimulate inspiration & creativity at a subconscious level. Invigorates circulation and warms the body. Soothes muscles, joint aches and other related pains. Helps to improve mood and relaxation. reduces anxiety, depression, and menstrual pain. Helps strengthen the immune system. Contains Vitamin A, K, E, Potassium, Iron, & calcium. Stimulates gastric juices and bile secretion. It is also used as a liver tonic to promote circulation, and as a sedative.

Feverfew

This ancient herb has been used for various applications. It’s most known for the prevention of migraine headaches and fevers. This herb is one of those I like to call “stay with it”. It’s not an instant fix if you have a migraine. Although some alleviation may occur as it is anti inflammatory. This herb is best used daily before the onset of the migraine. Feverfew is known to reduce blood pressure. Due to its anti inflammatory properties it reduces stomach irritation which allows stimulations of appetite. It can also reduce sensation of dizziness and ringing in the ears (tinnitus). Like Golden Rod, feverfew is great for seasonal allergies. Be aware this herb is not appropriate for children or pregnant & nursing moms.

Feverfew

I am not a doctor, nor do I claim to be one. When introducing new herbal applications into your life please seek your practioner of choice. Especially due to allergies. Herbal applications are unique to each individual, and can take time to be effective when taken internally. For more understanding on this, read my disclaimer & waiver, thanks.
