Making Citrus Calendula Soap

I actually remembered to film myself working!  YAAAYYY!  I'm trying to get better of showing you more behind the scenes of me working.  Progress....

Here's a video of me making my Citrus Calendula Soap.  It's a simple recipe with lots of skin-loving oils and uplifting citrus essential oil scents.  For all of my recipes I use the cold process method.

Check it out and let me know whatcha think!

Using Coconut Avocado Hair Mask as a Leave-In

Massaging our Coconut Avocado Hair Mask into my locs weekly is a staple after washing with the Mint & Tea Tree Shampoo Bar.  
Nothing complicated as I prefer simplicity.  The Coconut Avocado Hair Mask is multi-use and can be used as a pre-poo, conditioner, or leave-in. Watch the video below and see how I use this ultra-light mask as a leave-in. 
This is the ultimate food for your hair made with organic coconut oil and avocado oil infused with potent rosemary, nettle and horsetail herbs. These ingredients work together to strengthen and revitalize your hair leaving it with a healthy shine.  
My hair loves this mask and I'm sure yours will too!  Try it and let me know whatcha think ;)

First New Arrival of the New Year!

I have been sick all year (literally) and I'm playing catch up behind the scenes.  I have several new products that I plan to introduce before the spring and here's the first.....Eva Jenae Naturals Sisal Soap Pouch
This Sisal Soap Pouch is a lifesaver for your handmade soaps and shampoo bars! Our bars naturally contain a high amount of glycerin which attracts moisture. While this is great for your skin, it’s not so great for the life of your soap because it will break down rapidly if left in moisture.  Sisal is a natural fiber so this pouch doubles as an exfoliator while extending the life your soap. Use it to hang your soap between uses and allow to dry.

Check back to see what else we have up our sleeve for 2020!

Shipping Costs Suck!

TRUST ME-I GET IT! I loathe the cost of shipping too, but it's necessary.  Please know that I DO NOT set the shipping costs.  They are automatically calculated by USPS based on the weight of the items you're ordering and your zip code.  I've been offering free shipping on all orders over $50 in the U.S. for a few years now, but recently I've been eating shipping costs because of the increases in prices. Prices are set to increase AGAIN at the end of January by an average of 4% for priority shipping!

As a small business, that's a cost I can't afford.  As of 1 Jan 2020, priority shipping will be free for all U.S. orders (and APO/AE addresses) over $75.

Thanks for continuing to rock with me!

Say Hello to our Newest Additions!

If you follow me on instagram or facebook you know that I've introduced two new soaps in the past couple of weeks!  Months of preparation went on behind the scenes to prepare and I'm so grateful for the wonderful reviews they have received so far.  

The Mint & Tea Tree Shampoo Bar  was the first to be introduced. It was specifically formulated to cleanse without stripping the natural oils from your hair and scalp. The rosemary infused olive oil base combined with peppermint and tea tree essential oils are the perfect combo to cleanse and condition your tresses while stimulating your scalp! You can hear more about the story behind the product on Instagram.

Turmeric (of course) is the star ingredient in this Turmeric Complexion Bar. This powerhouse will help you keep that summer glow year round while brightening and evening our skin tone.  

Try them both out and let me know what you think!

3 Easy Tips to Rock a Healthy Glow All Winter!

We all have that one friend or family member who always come around with dry, ashy skin and is totally unbothered. That is one of my biggest pet peeves people! I know it gets tougher in the winter to keep your skin moisturized, but it really doesn't take much effort. Try these 3 tips to stay moisturized and GLOW this winter:

1. STAY HYDRATED!  Drink more water, eat more fruits and veggies with high water content, and cut back on the coffee and soda.  Now I'm not saying to ditch your coffee! Just know that if you are already dehydrated, adding coffee or soda to the mix will only make things worse.  Staying hydrated is essential to getting and keeping your glow all year long!

2. USE HEAVIER MOISTURIZERS! Bath oils perform wonderfully for me in the warmer months, but the winter is much different.  As the temps cool I trade the oils for heavier body butters.  Layering oils on top of the butters works wonders for drier skin as well.

3. EXFOLIATE! There's no way your skin's going to reach it's optimal glow if you aren't exfoliating; it's that simple.  Exfoliating helps remove excess dead skin cells to reveal new layers of skin.  In the process, you are also helping scars fade, improving the texture of your skin and increasing collagen production.  Proper exfoliation also helps your skin absorb moisturizer better.

If you're bummed about your dull skin this winter, it's not too late to implement these 3 simple tips. GLOW deserve it ;)

THINK small

Eva Jenae Naturals | 100% Natural and Vegan Skincare

I almost did it yall. I was ALMOST pressured into slashing my prices for Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and Cyber Monday. It's easy to get caught up in all the pressure and stress out over the possible sales you'll miss out on, but I have to stick with my guns on this.
I don't mass produce my products and it's crazy for me to think I can compare my tiny little indie business to big box stores and brands. They can afford to offer huge discounts, not me. Lots of love and care go into every product I make, package, and label by hand. Slashing my prices would be great for customers, but would cripple my business.
I encourage you all to think big and shop small year round....not just for Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and Cyber Monday. Small businesses are the backbone of our communities. We sponsor youth teams, support local organizations, and funnel money directly back into the communities we live in.
While I don't have huge sales, I can offer you the most nourishing vegan products your skin and hair will love!
