Rosemary a Wonder Herb

I must say, I love, love, ROSEMARY this wonder herb is great for many different things. You can experiment with it when exercising your culinary skills, or if you play with creating your own bath and body products.  Per Wikipedia this herb is known as:
Rosmarinus officinalis, commonly known as rosemary, is a woody, perennial herb with fragrant, evergreen, needle-like leaves and white, pink, purple, or blue flowers …   Rosemary is an herb. Oil is extracted from the leaf and used to make medicine.  You can research other sources for a more creditable definition or more information.


I personally use rosemary for cooking, this herbs has such a great aroma giving fish, poultry or meats a great savory taste.  I also use it in creating our Skin Candy handcrafted soaps and other bath and body products.  Stringently enough, when using our Simply Fresh rosemary soap bar, I found that it’s great for untangling my hair.  This is a blessing for me with C 3 type curls.   But that is not it’s only benefit, it’s known for helping with hair loss, it’s also good for many other ailments.  WebMD have listed the following medicinal uses for Rosemary:

It is used for digestion problems, including heartburn, intestinal gas (flatulence), liver and gallbladder complaints, and loss of appetite. It is also used for gout, cough, headache, high blood pressure, and reducing age-related memory loss.

Rosemary is used topically (applied to the skin) for preventing and treating baldness; and treating circulation problems, toothache, a skin condition called eczema, and joint or muscle pain such as myalgia, sciatica, and intercostal neuralgia. It is also used for wound healing, in bath therapy (balneotherapy), and as an insect repellent.
Unfortunately some women use rosemary to increase menstrual flow and causing abortions.  We don’t recommend.

We at Skin Candy use Rosemary in manufacturing our soaps and other bath and body products using the essential oils as a component to scent our products.   For more Skin Candy Spa Product information please visit our website at:

Indulge with SKIN CANDY: Our Story

These past two years I have been on a quest to find my happiness.  I didn’t know that this endeavor would take me to a place of faith, soul searching, and healing.  With all that came a lifestyle change, love, struggles, art, and PEACE.  Through all that Skin Candy a bath and body line was born assembled from organic products in the process of becoming completely organic.  This product own by Stylish Party Ideas has been therapeutic for me. Increasing my creativity to new heights.  Allowing me to become self confident and believing that I can do anything in Greatness.
 After teaching many crafting classes using different mediums in our SPI Art Studio.  Skin Candy a sister company of Stylish Party Ideas was created.  With endless possibilities, no money nor resources I had to tap into my new found faith for deliverance.    With plenty of ideas, no product, no customers but a dream of incredible possibilities my husband and I embarked in this journey with no idea where the road would lead us.
Mad community support  has come to the rescue and many donations of recyclable items make their way to our shop daily.   Being a person of faith I say the LORD is proving for us each and everyday.  After six months of self employment and still working this dream.  I’m thankful for the present moment.  Now I can see that our possibilities are endless and my dream it so much smaller than what the CREATOR has in-stored for us.
Through this journey came the need to self cleanse.  Trying to eat healthier and live a better life I found myself revisiting old habits of seeking organic products, aromatherapy, herbal remedies, and all around wellness. I know we still have a long way to go.  But through this quest of happiness I found a new passion for taking care of myself, my body, and my environment.  That’s how I came to the art of soaping.  Through the ART of DIY in our SPI Art Studio I found myself handcrafting soaps and body products concocted from organic herbs, flowers, oils, and spices. These blends are specially designed to nourish and treat your skin providing much needed TLC. Through this journey as I educate myself I promise to share my knowledge with others.  I pledge to find old ideas to do new things for the betterment of ourselves, our body, and our environment.  I hope you find this journey as joyful as we do.  Come and experience the great gift of nature.  Indulge with Skin Candy give your skin a sweet treat today.
