Tea Tree Therapy was born from an idea that everyone should have access to a safe and natural antiseptic! Therefore Tea Tree Therapy, Inc. was founded in 1997 by Ed Heftman and Suzanne Dean. Suzanne Dean, an Aussie native, is recognized as one of the leading pioneers of tea tree oil and has been one of its most ardent supporters for more than 3 decades. Tea Tree Therapy has established itself as the industry leader for more than 23 years by sourcing only the highest quality oil direct from the plantation in Australia. 



Tea Tree Therapy Antiseptic Liquid Soap is the ideal face, hand, and body soap for everyday use. Tea Tree Oil makes the liquid soap the perfect antiseptic soap that is mild and gentle with addition of Aloe Vera gel and natural extracts. Working gently without drying the skin, it leaves skin noticeably clean and feeling well. 

This company offers many tea tree products, all with ingredients listed on the website and the product. Tea Tree Therapy products are cruelty free. This is a must for me when using a product. Thank you for going cruelty-free and making a difference!

The liquid soap created a creamy lather. It rinsed easy and left a nice scent on my hands. We used it on hands and body. A little bit goes a long way. My six year old reviewer said he thought it was easy to use and “liked the smell”. This product is recommended and we will be interested in trying more of their products.

Perfectly Natural Soap

A place to shop for natural bath & body products that are nurturing to your skin and respectful of the environment. Check out the many wholesome products that they offer on their website. I’ve reviewed/recommend the two following items.

Lavender Soap, 4 oz

Made with lavender essential oil, this is the best smelling soap ever.

Is Perfectly Natural Soap “Organic”?  What do you define as “Natural” soap?

Our soaps are made using  organic ingredients in many cases.  Each product label will indicate which ingredients are organic.

When we say our soap is all-natural, it is our way of saying that it contains NO synthetic substances such as synthetic fragrances, petrochemicals, synthetic colorants or preservatives. Our purely herbal soap is scented with essential oils and naturally derived ingredients (plant extracts) and colored with organic herbs, clays and plant extracts.

We recognize that there isn’t really such a thing as “natural soap” or “organic soap”, in the technical sense of the words, since soap isn’t present or formed in nature.  At Perfectly Natural Soap, we take elements from nature and mix them together to make something new (alkali + oil = soap).  However, saponification is a chemical reaction that occurs by mixing these elements.  Some would therefore call it a “chemical” and technically they are correct.  We needed to find a way to convey to you our commitment to only use ingredients that are plant based, contain NO synthetic substances such as synthetic fragrances, colorants or preservatives and we do that by using the term “all-natural”.

Bug Off! Lotion Bar Natural Bug Repellent

I really love how this bar is so user friendly. As a solid, it doesn’t leak and its size makes it convenient to toss into your backpack. Air travel friendly.

Do you test your products on animals?

We NEVER test our products on animals. Our friends and family happily volunteer to be our testers.

Blue No.7 was founded in 2005, offering the old fashioned English style Ice Bag which can be used for hot or cold use. Since then we have added our own line of of Artisan French Milled Soap. We are a family run business, not a huge faceless corporation! Our company headquarters are located in beautiful Southern California, additionally with family operations in France.

Hot+Cold Bags

This style bag is wonderful because it is body-shaping. And the fabric is soft to the skin. It has a wide mouth to easily fill with water (and ice cubes). I prefer to use my “Ducky” bag warm. Warm. Soft. Squishy. The website currently shows this bag available in 10 fabric styles. All great as a natural relief of bumps, bruises, headaches, migraines, sinus pain, swollen joints and limbs. Odor free and with a leak proof assurance from Blue No. 7 customer service. 



French Milled Soap

Mm mm, Grapefruit – 1 of 7 scents. “You’ll fall in love with our French Milled 100% vegetable soaps which are made of the finest ingredients, including essential and natural oils, found in the South of France.​​”  Merveilleux!

Spa Face Cloth

It’s an 11×11 washcloth with a mouth cutout. Simple but so very nice! Great addition to a spa/beauty gift package. Available in white or pink.

Deodorant Remover and the Do Everything Tape

These are called “wardrobe must-haves” on the Blue No.7 website. The natural deodorants that I use don’t leave any white marks so I’ve not been able to review the deodorant remover. I also haven’t used the double-sided tape stripes on any of my clothes but I think some people would really find them handy. A great  item for a mom’s quick wardrobe fix, to use with kids clothes, and with creating kiddo play costumes. 

Good Deal! Blue No.7 is offering FREE shipping the entire month of March.

All Natural Handmade Soaps

Creative & Handmade Bath Accessories

3 Step Natural Facial Care Kit

Nourishing Shea Butter Lotions

Whipped Body Crème’s

Aromatherapy Sprays

Natural Balms

Not made with: parabens, sodium lauryl sulfates, phosphates, artificial colors, artificial fragrances, harsh chemicals, mineral oils or petroleum products.

I‘m delighted to introduce Natural Garden Soaps where you can find 100% natural body products. No worries about synthetic chemicals or commercial preservatives. Paula Parrish, owner and soap-maker, takes pride in offering quality products from quality ingredients (some from her own backyard) at affordable prices.

I reviewed the Whipped Body Creme and the Garden Lavender Bar Soap along with the crochet washcloth and wood soap holder. I hope my review will inspire you to give them a try.

Included with a Natural Garden Soaps order is a skin care guide called Ten Green Skin Care Tips; being informed is the first step to making wise, healthy choices. Product ingredients are listed right on the website.

The Whipped Body Creme is an experience! This is my favorite and it ranks as one of the best cremes/lotions I’ve used. The fragrance is amazingly delicious and the texture is very light, mousse-like. The Garden Lavender Soap is the perfect bar soap; a healthy choice giving you visual results! The lavender scent-from lavender essential oil-is soothing. Paula has a lovely list of soaps she’s created and Mucky Seaweed is the next one I’d like to try. Really. The wooden tray allows the soap to dry between uses for a longer soap life. The crocheted washcloth is absorbent and the texture is good for exfoliation. Both the tray and the cloth complete a Natural Garden Soaps gift for someone special. Gift it for yourself!

A true hero, TrueBody Facial Soap is a natural ultra-gentle soap for everyday use.

It doesn’t offer a fanciful shape, a fruity fragrance, or a flashy neon color.

What is does offer is a few natural ingredients for a safe clean. I personally used this as a body soap and was pleased with its gentle lather.


It’s simply packaged and affordable priced.   Visit TrueBody Products website. And join them on Facebook.

Look what our friends at the Middlebury Food Coop did for their Valentine’s display…now that’s some True Love!
