We live in a chemical age that is rapidly obliterating natural ways of keeping clean, not just for our bodies but our surroundings too. Below are products loved for their simpleness and effectiveness, without long ingredient lists of manmade compounds. Some are even created by our friends! Brett's hand-made bath soaps are his pride and joy, well worth the price and rich with moisturizers and essential oils. Try his linseed oil multi-use home cleaner if you ever used Murphy's oil soap and miss the original formula. A capful of Himalayan soapberry extract washes your colored clothes and leaves them super-soft; Christine's castile soap laundry powder is wonderful for both colors and whites.
Our full-spectrum LED light bulbs are vision- and mood-friendly, unlike the ones you buy in stores, and the Sherpa bedwarmer is a zero-cost way to stay cozy and warm!

The Opposite of a Blanket: Sherpa Bedwarmers
Are you cold at night?
In the old days a bedwarmer was a pan of coals. Today it's a warm fleece underblanket that makes your bed cozy and toasty and yummy and soft!
No electricity, no electromagnetic fields, sleep without heating your room.
A novel creation that solves the problem without electricity, using your own body heat! The bedwarmer is a fluffy mat that goes below your bottom (fitted) sheet and recycles all your warmth right back to you. Made of synthetic polyester fleece, our bedwarmers are machine washable and can be tumble dried to fluff up again - they last for years!
Cheaper than sheepskin mattress pads ($600+) and styled for all bed sizes - get them for the whole family and save on your heating bill! Combined with flannel sheets and a hot water bottle...nothing like it!
