EvaOlivia Organics {Giveaway} – CLOSED

We’ve been lucky in our family to not have many allergies or skin sensitivities — we can pretty much use any sort of laundry detergent, diaper, soap, cleaner or other skincare/household product without worrying about it affecting us or our children.  A friend of mine, though, had a daughter with severe eczema that would flare up from time to time out of nowhere; on top of that, her daughter also had food allergies that could cause skin issues if she even touched the food (or something containing that food).

I’ve often thought about how different her life is from mine, especially as we discussed sending our children to preschool — while I was concerned about my son obeying the teacher, following directions, and getting along with other children, she worried about the types of fabric softeners that other children had on her clothes, if someone would inadvertently forget to take out the peanut butter crackers in their kids’ backpacks, and that there would be someone who was trained (and willing!) to use an Epi-pen if needed.  I immediately thought of this friend and her family when I learned about EvaOlivia Organics and the organic, homemade products that they offer that can ease skin sensitivities.EvaOlivia-Organics-logo-wit

“Several years ago, two new parents began making soap in their kitchen in an effort to produce a cleansing soap that was gentle enough for their daughter who was born prematurely and with very sensitive skin.  Guided by the recipes their grandparents and great grandparents used, they blended various herbs and flowers from their own organic garden into their soap mixtures.  This soap became the only soap the family used (it still is!) and it addressed the sensitivity issue for their daughter.”

“EvaOlivia soaps are made completely from scratch using the cold process method, with raw ingredients and recipes created based on the craft our grandmothers and great grandmothers used to make ‘lye soap’.  Our soap is hand poured and hand cut.  This is soapmaking in the tradition of our ancestors.  Today, our soap is made with the same love and care that inspired our original bars of unscented soap, then lavender, then other varieties.”

EvaOlivia’s soap line currently includes:

  When I was contacted by EvaOlivia Organics about doing a review of their products, I said that I would love to and didn’t see anything on the website that I wouldn’t like to try, which fairly rare for me since I can usually pinpoint a few items that catch my eye.  I’m so glad that I didn’t specify anything — I loved the surprises and the scents/products that I probably wouldn’t have chosen on my own!

We were sent two bottles of the Bath & Shower Gel, three Individual Bar Soaps, and one Body Butter.  I LOVE the oils that are found in the Bath & Shower Gels that seems to linger on my skin much longer than other soaps, and the scents (Sweet Shea and Citrus Magic) are perfect for summertime.  The Individual Bar Soaps are an item that I probably wouldn’t have chosen on my own since I feel like bar soaps can have a clammy feel and can leave my skin flaky and dry, but these bar soaps from EvaOlivia Organics didn’t have that effect at all!  I liked the oatmeal in the bar that, again, left my skin feeling soft after leaving the shower.

The Body Butter, though, was my absolute favorite!  This didn’t surprise me that much, as I’ve loved using thick body butters on my feet during the summer when I live in my flip flops — my surprise came from the Lemongrass scent that I never would have chosen on my own but have ended up LOVING!  I overheard a girl in my husband’s unit once comment that lemongrass smelled like lime jello to her, but I didn’t find that to be the case at all.  I’ve mentioned before that I love anything lemon (scent, flavor, etc.), and the lemongrass just added a softness to the tart lemon by itself.
