Etsy Recommedations - Rose of Sharon Acres

As a new series for the blog, I will be sharing some of my favorite Etsy shops from the perspective of a buyer. Rose of Sharon Acres is still on Etsy, but the bulk of their products are on their personal website I discovered Rose of Sharon Acres a couple of years ago when looking for a natural alternative to cortisone for a patch of eczema on my arm. That is when I found their tea tree/lavender salve which immediately worked wonders, as well as smelling so lovely.

I branched out to soaps, like the lavender soap seen above which is DIVINE and great for your face and body. The bars last a long time and, in my opinion, are unparalleled. I have tried other soap makers on Etsy, and though I've had mixed experiences from great to not so great (no naming names here!) I haven't found anyone that makes a product as natural, healing, great smelling, and long lasting.

I've also tried their tooth chips (soap for teeth) which admittedly take a little getting used to, but I swear your teeth will never feel cleaner! Rose of Sharon Acres offers a wide range of natural products, including luxurious lotions that make your skin feel like silk and smell great. As for the smell of all of their products, it's just how I like it - NATURAL. The rose smell smells like a real rose, the lavender is real lavender - no chemically or sickly sweet "fake" smells here!

Edited to add: How could I forget my most recent purchase - their blemish balm! Yes, I'm in my mid thirties and still get the occasional pimple. *sigh* I've tried so many over the counter products that typically just make the matter so much worse. But now, at the first sign of a blemish, I put just a little bit of balm on that spot and it goes away without blossoming into a full-blown monster. I bought one tin of it (I see it now comes in chapstick containers - brilliant!) and it's still more than half full after using it for quite some time. I highly recommend this product for folks dealing with adult acne or for teens struggling with clear skin.

The products are fabulous, the customer service is top notch, and I just can't say enough great things about them. In fact, you can read my testimonial I wrote years ago on their website - mine is the one next to the salve that begins "At the risk of...". (By the way, I no longer have eczema!).

Visit their shop today and buy with confidence!
