Why We Use Phthalate-free Fragrances

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 phthalate-free fragrances to ensure an amazing scent. These fragrances may be blended with essential oils for a more natural scent.

How wine country inspired our latest soap

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

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?

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 […]

Why “Shop Local” Means So Much to Me

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 […]

Simple is better with Kukui Oil

Many times in life, you realize simple is better.

Think about it. Some of the best meals you make have just a few simple ingredients. And, when people talk about their ideal day, they don’t give a laundry list of things they want to do. They focus on a few simple things that matter the most.

There’s nothing more satisfying to me than discovering simpler, better ways.

During a family trip to Hawaii, to my surprise, I made a […]
