Moon Root Soaps and Candles Giveaway

This weekend’s giveaway is from Christelle, owner of Moon Root Soaps and Candles.  I asked Christelle to share a bit about herself and her business with all of you.

I make organic, handmade soap in beautiful Eugene, Oregon. I started my soap business 4 years ago.  Crafting has always been in my nature, as I grew up at Arts and Craft
Shows where my mom sold her pressed flower art.  I LOVE creating. I just love selling my soap at natural food stores in town and at the local Farmers Market.

I use the highest quality ingredients (90% organic!), and scent only using 100% pure essential oils.  It is important to me to use ingredients that are good for our bodies, and good for our planet.  There’s a lot of handmade soap out there, and I try to make my soaps as unique as possible.  I dry my own herbs from my garden and add them to some of my herbal soaps.  I try to have interesting flavors- like my Carrot Cake Soap, Orange Cocoa Swirl, and Lime & Sea Salt.  For my Carrot Cake Soap, I juice organic carrots myself, which gives the soap a vibrant orange color.  Other favorites are Pacific Northwest, Lavender Rosemary, and Oatmeal Sage. I also make wonderfully moisturizing body butters.

I’ve recently started making liquid soap and 100% soy wax candles, which I also scent with essential oils.  I use organic spices and plants to dye the candles vibrant and beautiful colors.  I use turmeric, paprika, cinnamon, alkanet root, and spirulina to dye my candles.  I strive to live simply, and love homesteading. My partner and I are searching for land so we can set up our own little farm, where we hope to live off the land.  As for my interests, I’m constantly cooking, gardening, playing with wool (spinning, dying, knitting), making soap, hanging out with my chickens, brewing beer, hiking with my dog, or painting.  Thanks for reading!  You can also follow Moon Root on Facebook!

For today’s giveaway, Christelle is offering one winner a gift package containing a soy candle, two bars of soap, and a large body butter.  The winner can choose which variety of each that they receive.  In addition, all orders receive a 10% discount.  Enter the code “SMALLTHINGS” at checkout.

For your chance to win, simply leave a comment on this post.  Comments are closed and the winner is Janet R. “Ooooooh, these soaps and candles sound delicious… er, I mean, SO fragrant! And pampering, that body butter… Thanks for the generous giveaway! I’d love to win!”

Thank you, Moon Root Soaps and Candles!
