What is Calendula?
Calendula is a bright orange-yellow flower that blooms from March to first frost in the midwest. Calendula petals have been used for thousands of years for their antibiotic, antibacterial, and healing qualities.
How long does it take to ship your products?
We normally ship products the 2nd business day after the order is placed. However some products are made fresh when ordered, so it may take 2-4 days before shipping.
Orders to Australia and UK may take up to 7 days to ship standard mail. I only get to the Post Office once a week normally.
How do I use the Calendula Healing Oil?
A small amount can be massaged into any dry or problem area, face, cuticles, hands, arms, elbows, knees, or feet as needed.
I massage a small amount in an upward motion on my face in the morning and before bed for a few wrinkles, and then blot it with a clean towel. After less than 2 weeks, the wrinkles are less noticable.
After a bath or shower, massage Calendula Oil over your whole body for soft, silky skin.
It also makes a wonderful moisturizing foot soak. Add a capful to warm water in the tub or an old dishpan and soak for 10-20 minutes.
You can add one of our Herbal Bath Tea bags to the water also.
It stops the itch from Mosquito bites too!
Safe for use on babies and pets.
Do you combine shipping?
Yes, we will combine shipping on any of our products. There is no combined shipping chart on ecrater, so please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org with the items and your zip code for a shipping quote.
What is a Salt Bar?
Salt bars are handmade soap with a high salt content.
Salt bars have many benefits, other than the way they make the skin feel silky smooth.
The bar is harder than other soap due to the high salt content so it will last longer.
Salt has natural therapuedic properties, and helps to smooth the skin.
If you're looking to combine the cleansing, exfoliating and detoxifying qualities
of a salt bath you can find them in a "salt bar."
I have read that salt scrubs are used to battle acne, so why not try a combination salt scrub/soap?
Even if you do not have acne, your skin is in for a real treat!
Why is shipping so high?
Contact me with your zip code if you think shipping is to high for your area. The weight chart is basic, so I had to put the highest shipping cost possible, not knowing where the item will go. Thank you.
Contact me with your zip code for a quote for combined shipping. It will save you money!
What sets your soap apart from all the rest?
There are tons of homemade soaps to choose from online. Ours are unique due to the water. We use pure rainwater (great for the skin) that is collected in food grade rainbarrels. We also use 100% natural oils, butters, and pure essentials oils with no toxic synthetic fragrances.
Do you have any more soap scents?
Yes, we currently offer Salty Beer Soap with the same popular unisex fragrance as Dark Side Beer Shampoo Bars. I have not been able to list them for some reason. I cannot see the subcategory, it is blank and it will not list without it.
We also have Salty Cherry Soap made with Honey Almond fragrance oil but it smells like sweet Cherry!
Contact me if you are interested in either of these:)
What is a Shampoo Bar?
Shampoo Bars are natural, moisturizing shampoo in a bar. Made with high quality butters and oils to preserve the natural oils in the hair. We do not use any chemicals. Your hair will feel clean and manageable after just one wash. Some hair types do not even need conditioner after using our shampoo bars.
How can I save money on shipping?
I will combine shipping to save you money. Just contact me at email@example.com with the item you want and your zip code for a quote. You will also get product discounts for purchasing more than 2 items.
Do you have sample size Shampoo Bars?
Yes, we recently added samples of Shampoo Bars so you can try it before purchasing a full bar. There are so many hair types that it really helps to try a sample first. Our Shampoo bars also make great soap.
I have not received my order, what can I do?
We value your business and ship all products within 1-2 business days after payment has cleared. With the exception of standard mail to AU and UK. I only get to the Post Office once a week.
If you do not receive your order it may be because:
We have not received payment.
Or we have not been notified of your order (emails are not always dependable).
Since ecrater has updated the website there are times when we cannot log in. If we do not receive the notification of sale email, and cannot get in to check orders, we may not even know about it. This is not intentional, believe me.
If this happens please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We normally check emails twice a day or more. Please write ECRATER ORDER or ECRATER QUESTION in all caps in the subject line for me.
Do you make Solid Lotion Bars?
Yes, we make awesome Intense Solid Lotion Bars with Cocoa Butter, Calendula oil, and Shea Butter however they can only be shipped during cool weather due to the melting point of Cocoa Butter. So please check back in the fall.
