How wine country inspired our latest soap

By |2019-09-29T14:00:41+00:00September 29th, 2019|Categories: Uncategorized|0 Comments

My husband and I enjoy traveling just like any other couple. We love the ocean and a great beach, but our favorite type of destination is wine country for two reasons. No. 1: We love trying new wine and hearing how wineries made their mark, and No.2: We love hiking, and usually where there is good wine, there are rolling hills or mountains nearby.

We’ve traveled to some of the most beautiful wine countries […]

How I discovered Kukui Oil

By |2019-04-12T01:22:30+00:00April 11th, 2019|Categories: Uncategorized|0 Comments

Last weekend at a dear friend’s annual Crawl for a Cure event, I met an auto mechanic and a home remodeler. As we talked about our careers and I let them know about Elemental Blue, I quickly realized I was talking to two people who could significantly benefit from using Elemental Blue kukui oil on their rough, dry hands. Of course, I let them know about this miracle oil, and they asked a few questions […]

How did we come up with our company name?

By |2019-03-15T00:22:40+00:00March 13th, 2019|Categories: Uncategorized|0 Comments

This is a question I get a lot when talking to customers. They love the name, and it sounds nice, but what’s the meaning of it? And how did I land on this name?

Coming up with our company name was actually a long process and a lot harder than we thought it would be. Initially, my husband and I brainstormed different ideas. I felt strongly about the name relating to nature, health […]

Billions of Skin Bacteria is a Good Thing. Learn How to Keep Them Happy.

We Americans have a constant focus on being clean. We have a cleaning solution for just about everything. We’re obsessed with washing our hands. We enjoy a daily, hot shower. And hand sanitizer is always within reach.

While there are many advantages to living in a clean society, being too clean can wreak havoc on your skin. And, it can actually make you sick.

By cleaning too much and too harshly, […]

Why “Shop Local” Means So Much to Me

By |2018-11-11T17:35:36+00:00November 11th, 2018|Categories: Uncategorized|0 Comments

I’ll never forget sitting in the back of my dad’s Dodge Caravan, waiting impatiently while he drove us to my grandma’s house. She lived 10 hours away in southeast Iowa where the roads were unpaved and the nearest neighbor lived at least a quarter mile away.

Unlike my kids who get to travel to beautiful beaches every summer, driving to the country to visit family is what I did on vacation when […]

New Bath Bomb with Kukui Oil and Cocoa Butter

By |2018-09-16T15:57:01+00:00September 16th, 2018|Categories: Uncategorized|0 Comments

We’re getting more adventurous with our bath bomb making here at Elemental Blue. Typically, we make all of our bath bombs with sweet almond oil. This oil is mild, hypoallergenic and rich in Vitamin E. It also does a great job of making all of the ingredients stick together.

With our new floral, fruity-scented Blue Moon bath bomb, we are trying a couple of new ingredients and are replacing sweet almond oil with kukui oil […]

Why We Use Phthalate-free Fragrances

By |2018-09-30T00:30:13+00:00August 26th, 2018|Categories: Uncategorized|0 Comments

One big difference between our soaps and many natural soaps is how they smell. While we make our soaps with all-natural oils, we also add manmade, phthalate-free fragrances to ensure an amazing scent.

Other handmade soap makers prefer scenting their soaps with essential oils because they’re from nature and not manmade. While these oils may still provide a nicely-scented soap, we at Elemental Blue prefer a more fragrant, beautiful scent, and […]

Dead Sea Salt: Miracle Minerals for Your Skin

By |2018-06-11T19:22:49+00:00April 29th, 2018|Categories: Uncategorized|0 Comments

A few people have asked what makes Elemental Blue’s Mineral Bath so wonderful. Besides its amazing scent, there is a key, therapeutic ingredient that sets this bath product apart from others: Dead Sea salt.

Dead Sea salt comes from the saltiest body of water on earth and contains, what I like to call, miracle minerals, which benefit our skin and overall health. While Dead Sea salt is […]
