A sneak peak for our valued customers…

Goodmorning fellow bloggers and subscribers!  We have a few new developments that are taking shape here at EDEN Soap & Candle Company, and we wanted to give you the first glimpse of a little something that we are working on.  Due to the popularity of our custom made EDEN Citrine Pendant Necklaces this season,  I have spent many a night pondering how I might improve upon the design and personalize these adornments even further.  We’ve received numerous requests for these pieces and the feedback we have gotten from our customers has been overwhelmingly positive.  You all seem to love the hand constructed aspect (which is of no surprise as EDEN customers know the value of hand made items) and also the personalization aspect which allows one to choose any letter for the pendant.  Taking this into consideration and noting the popularity, these past few months we have been developing a sister company to EDEN Soap & Candle Co. that will feature a small line of select, hand forged and hand stamped gold and yellow brass jewelry!  This company will operate under the name of Whitney Oliver Designs as each piece is hand made (just like all of our EDEN products) by myself, Whitney Oliver.

Unlike the EDEN necklace, all of the pieces that we will be featuring are hand cut, hand filed, hand sanded, hand hammered, hand molded and hand stamped with custom initials, monograms, special dates, etc…  Each piece is one of a kind due to their hand forged origins.  All of the metals featured in our jewelry are fine, high quality metals, NO plating or coating.  All 14 carat gold filled or pure yellow brass.

I have always valued unique hand made jewelry and incorporating this trade into a subsidiary of EDEN Soap & Candle Co. has been somewhat of an ease and a natural expansion.  Our customer base has shown itself to be one that does not draw the line at candles and spa products, but rather has a keen eye for exquisite and unique gifting, as well as a taste for quality when it comes to their own lifestyle.  We are excited to offer yet another avenue for our customer to shop and obtain exclusive, uncommon and custom made items for themselves and for gifts.  Whitney Oliver Designs will soon be available on our EDEN Soap & Candle Co. website (www.edensoapandcandle.com) as well as in select stores.  Currently, Couture Boutique in Little Italy, San Diego is offering our Lyla necklace.  We will keep you posted regarding new retailers as we get them.  For now, subscribe to our sister blog:  www.whitneyoliverdesigns.wordpress.com and “like” us on facebook (http://www.facebook.com/pages/Whitney-Oliver-Designs-Hand-Forged-Jewelry/136923929695870) for updates, special offers, and more information on current and new pieces of our collection!

Natural Vs. Store Bought

The majority of mass produced soaps, scrubs lotions and cleansers on the market today are not really any of these things at all, but rather detergents and synthetic chemical emollients full of fragrance, dyes and fillers. Stripped of their most nourishing ingredients, these products leave skin feeling itchy and dry, often times irritating skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis. EDEN Body offers a complete line of therapeutic body treatments all made with the most natural, nourishing and healing ingredients available. All of our body products are fragrance free, dye-free, never diluted and never mass produced. Our liberal use of carrier oils such as sweet almond, sunflower and olive oils along with our pure essential oils, will hydrate and protect the skin more effectively than the alternative commercial products. We guarantee this.

The seasons are changing and with the beauties of fall so come the signs of dry, tight and itchy skin. EDEN Soap & Candle Co. is dedicated to providing our customers with effective and nourishing body products pumped full of healing ingredients and moisturizing oils. We also feel it is important to provide our customers with the knowledge and science behind our products which is one of the main objectives of this blog.

As a young woman with dry skin, I was constantly reaching for the latest commercial grade/brand name product, having no idea what I was really applying to my face and body.  It wasn’t until I really started researching ingredients and eliminating from my regimen mass produced, commercial brand products, that I really began to notice a positive change in the look and feel of my skin. We are bombarded today with advertisements that many times are flat out deceiving.  There are countless products manufactured with artificial ingredients for skin care.  These products claim to target specific problems, however, most of them are cheaply made with poor quality ingredients and often do not do anything to promote proper skin health. In fact, often times, such products do more harm than good.

Here at EDEN Soap & Candle Company, we want you to know exactly what you are getting for your money and we gaurantee once you start using our natural and highly concentrated products, you’ll start to notice the difference immediatly and you may even wonder how you went so long without them.  The oils listed below are a huge part of what makes our body products so effective .  These “carrier” oils mousturize the skin and allow for the essential oils to be more readily absorbed, increasing their therepeutic values.  These oils also leave a protective barrier on the skin to gaurd against the elements and promote round the clock moisturization.


Used within our Essential Oil Sea Salt Scrubs…

Many people are looking at the use of olive oil and olive oil skincare products as a natural way to make and keep their skin healthy. Olive oil benefits for the body are well advertised, but what about the olive oil benefits for the skin?

Extra virgin olive oil, all by itself, is one of the best beauty secrets, in my opinion!  Olive oil promotes a radiant complexion and helps maintain elasticity of skin.  In addition to being a natural, hypoallergenic way to moisturize skin, it has the added advantage of yielding strong antioxidants, such as Vitamins A and E that help repair and renew skin that has been damaged from overexposure to sun, air pollution, and other modern-day environmental hazards, like cigarette smoke and fast food. These antioxidants have the natural ability to stimulate cells and return skin to a firmer, smoother, and healthier state.  Whether applied to face or body, it will penetrate deep into the skin and provide a long-lasting shield of moisture keeping skin smooth and supple. It also heals dry, brittle nails and softens cuticles.


Used within our Essential Oil Sea Salt Scrubs & Lavender For Baby Soothing Cream…

This natural oil is rich in vitamins that are needed for healthy looking skin and is very soothing to several types of skin irritations, one in particular being acne.  The oil from the sunflower seed is extremely rich in vitamins A,C,D and E and because of the rich source of vitamin E, this natural oil is incredibly soothing and gentle when applied.  Oil obtained from sunflower seeds, like most other oils, is excellent in helping the skin retain moisture. What sets sunflower oil apart however is that it can additionally provide the skin with a natural barrier of protection against bacteria and others irritants which are at the root of most blemish issues.

In addition to being a stalwart ingredient for the international cosmetics industry, scientists now say that massaging new born babies with sunflower oil helps to fend off infection and other medical complications.  Dr Gary Darmstadt and his team at the John Hopkins University, conducted a study on premature babies born in Bangladesh between 1998 and 2003. Their findings were published in the Lancet Medical Journal and concluded that massaging low birth weight babies with sunflower oil, is an effective intervention that can protect premies from varying infections.  Premature babies are particularly susceptible to infection and medical complications – a fact that lent the study particular pertinancy.


Used within our Essential Oil Body Repair Lotions…

Sweet almond oil is famous throughout the world because of its medicinal and therapeutic properties. A luxurious oil, it not only nourishes the skin, but also nourishes hair and nails. Sweet almond oil slows the aging process while restoring elasticity and its moisturizing benefits make it ideal for sensitive and dry skin. Plastic surgeons use almond oil to help relieve itching and inflammation. All of our Body Repair Lotions are pumped full of sweet almond oil along with jojoba oil for ultimate nourishment you can see and feel!
