Featured Artisan - Buff Organics

Today we welcome Christa of Buff Organics


Here is what she has to say about herself and her business - 

I strive to create natural and organic bath and body products that are good for you, your family, and our Earth. I craft Buff Organics' products using top-quality ingredients that are sourced from environmentally responsible companies. My goal is to support sustainable, organic agriculture, while providing families with natural and luxurious bath and body products that are eco-friendly. 

We also had a few of our mamas ask her questions - and you can find those below.

How did you get into making bath and body items? 

I have always been interested in organic and natural items... from cleaning, to bath and body, to fabrics, to food. After all of my research to provide my family with the green alternatives, I finally decided to branch into making items myself. I actually began making my own cleaning products, and next, I began researching and using essential oils. I love to research, experiment, and create, and my passion for the subject matter really drove me. I perfected my formulas after countless experiments and numerous testers passed out to family and friends. Then, we all agreed- we loved the products too much not to share! 


What is your favorite item from your line and why? 

That's a tough one. I am constantly changing my favorite, and it really varies with the season. But I really love the Luxury SPA Salt Bars! Another favorite is the Sugar Scrub Cream. I've never used a shower product that moisturizes so well that you really don't even need a lotion afterward. Plus, I'm a huge fan og cold-process soap


What is your favorite scent/scent combination? 

I really can't choose just one! My favorite anytime scent is Clean Rain, an essential oil combination with Lavender and Bergamot. I also love Yuzu and Champagne! For earthy scents, my favorite is Karma, since it has lots of Patchouli and Sweet Orange. 

Is there something you have always wanted to make but haven't had the time? 

There is always something on my list that is waiting to be created. I'm working on a Bug Spray for Summer, and I've always wanted to create a natural deodorant. Other products that are in the works are Shampoos and Conditioners, Linen/Body Mist, and numerous different Soaps! 



Now it's your turn.

I like the sound of the Sugar Scrub she mentions in the interview, but didn't see it on the page, so I'd pick the Aloe Lotion in the Lavender and Vanilla scent.
