ABOUT

We have been making soap and candles for over ten years and pride ourselves on natural quality ingredients. If we wouldn't use it ourselves, we don't include it in our products!

 

NATURAL AND HANDMADE SOAP

 

What is Natural Soap?
Natural Soap is defined many ways by many different companies/individuals. We differentiate our soaps as "all natural" when they contain no synthetic (man-made) materials. However, Essential Oils are the natural version of fragrance, in that, they are highly aromatic fluids taken from nature (plant leaf, flower petals, tree bark, etc.). We try to stay as natural as possible. For example, even though we may add essential oils  to the soap doesn't mean that we throw in a bunch of preservatives and dyes as well . 

In the end one soap may be a bit more or less natural than another soap, and for each person it may be more the question of the larger (or smaller) ingredients and especially the processing (soap making method) that is real teller of the quality. 

 

Handmade Soap
This is a term used to suggest the soap is processed by hand, usually in small batches. Handmade soap is not necessarily "all natural" (by our definition). Some companies may use this term loosely and may simply use "melt and pour soap" (commonly called glycerin soap) and call it handmade soap because they mixed a bit of color and fragrance into it by hand. All of our soap is truly handmade from scratch and we NEVER use melt and pour soap in any element of our soap making process.

 

HANDPOURED SOY CANDLES

 

Two Little Blackbirds, LLC offers both scented and aromatherapy candle. All of our candles are crafted with soy wax and all cotton wicks. No artificial colors of any kind are used. The difference between our scented and aromatherapy candles is the oils used to create the scent. 

Scented Candles
We use high quality fragrance oils in our scented candles. Most of our scents are phthalate, nitro musk, and vanillin free. This information is provided for each scent, so you know exactly what your candle contains

Aromatherapy Candles
Our aromatherapy candles are scented exclusively with therapeutic grade essential oils.
