Hair Crack was created when I couldn't find a quality product to keep my curls smooth and bouncy. As folks with multi-racial, ethnic and curly hair well know, it takes a moisturizer and a sealant to keep hair happy, healthy, and free of breakage. I was trying out recipes while watching "Beauty Shop" on repeat and -- just like Gina's special conditioner -- the name stuck.
Gentle enough to be used on kiddos and on your skin during the harsh, drying times of winter. Dishwashers, knitters, farmers, and tradespeople of all sorts will appreciate a soothing coat on tired hard-working hands.
No added fragrances, dyes, or preservatives.
Use as a one-a-week nighttime treatment or a little bit into damp ends on the daily.
Peppermint Body Butter:
Peppermint Body Butter is made for unruly hair, windburned faces, and as a gentle self-care treatment. Black Peppermint is home-grown in our organic garden, harvested by hand, and prepared in our kitchen as the base of this luxurious balm.
Use as a nighttime conditioning skin treatment, skin protectant, leave-in hair conditioner, lip balm, or daily hand cream.
We Are Family Balm:
We Are Family is the close cousin of our highly regarded Peppermint Body Butter, only with Lemon Balm, Wild Mint, and Spearmint joining forces with Black Peppermint. These Mint Family plants are home-grown in our organic garden, harvested by hand, and processed in our kitchen as the base of this soothing balm.
Use as a nighttime conditioning skin treatment, skin protectant, leave-in conditioner, lip balm, or daily hand cream.
A simple kitchen recipe of cornstarch, baking soda, Melaleuca, and our organic Calendula-infused Olive Oil, BH2 deodorant was made as a bit of self-care combined with hard wearing. The creamy base makes a great lymph massage for areas of our bodies that don't get much loving attention and the calendula infusion works to help drain lymph and restore the body.
Our gentle-to-the-skin deodorant is no slouch - it lasts through high summer gardening, full sun hiking, and hot yoga (Yes, all in one day!); it lasts approximately 2-3 days without reapplying depending on constitution and activities. Know that this mixture will settle over time, so if you find it flaking out on you just add a little olive oil (or other favorite carrier oil) to your tin. No added perfumes, fragrances or dyes.
Store in a cool, dark place for maximum effect.
Wild Hare Herbal Smoking Blend:
This mellow blend of mullein, peppermint, lemon balm, and catnip is a multi-purposed treat for the senses. Useful as a replacement of tobacco when something physical is needed for addictive smoking cessation, an ideal aid for respiratory ailments, or as another pleasurable way to enjoy herbs. Non-addictive, non-toxic, no additives or preservatives of any kind.
I Love You Mix Herbal Tea:
Like drinking a big hug from your most beloved friend, I Love You is an all-organic herbal mix of rose buds, lavandin, tulsi, catnip, cinnamon, and cardamom. Sharing encouraged.
