Made to Order

Selling a ton of 16 oz. shampoo and body washes lately, which means I've been busy hand filling and scenting!  An aromatherapy "farmacist" if you will. 

I'm excited the washes are catching on, they're gentle, multipurpose and gender neutral--we've used them for years at our house.  You can also use it to beard wash & I use small amounts for hand washing some of my clothes.  O I love a multitasking product!

If you've never been to Urbaca, let me assure you, we have a million and one choices for shampoo/conditioners.

I don't regularly stock our 16 oz. washes because we don't have the shelf space.

I guess what I'm trying to say is, if you have purchased a 16 oz. wash recently, odds are I probably put it together just for you!  Hope you enjoy!  : )

Why Lip Balm?

Our Hand Poured Vegan Lip Balms are the first organically preserved skin care product of Okamura Farmacopia.  Made out of necessity, lip balm is one of those things. When I need it, I really need it.  It’s always getting lost, and if somehow I don’t lose it, it lasts forever. 
There are not many benefits to being related to me—I love everyone, but never call, only visit occasionally and I show my love in lip balm. 
My love is strangely utilitarian:
In a pinch you could melt it down and make a candle, I often do this when I find an old one in a pocket or under the car seat.  Nothing goes to waste at Okamura Farm.
Tattoo/scar healing balm.  Those areas you have chosen to mark, or the areas where life has marked you.
Cuticle oil.  My lovely friend Lisa at Seven Bridges Winery found this use. I have a 1 oz. jar in my car and use it as hand and sometimes leg moisturizer.  I leave little oily smooches everywhere I go...what? It conditions the leather.
I’ve poured every single one of them—especially the ugly ones--with the intention of love, joy and comfort. Hope you like! xosherry
