The best products come directly from nature, and Island Thyme offers some of the freshest ingredients you can find. This company has existed since 1996, manufacturing soaps, creams, healing oils, and other divine offerings. Their farm and apothecary studio is located in the San Juan Islands in Washington state. This natural, bucolic setting provides the perfect backdrop for Island Thyme’s tireless efforts to provide a high-quality, organic, vegetarian line.
You can’t help but drool over their lovely website, www.islandthyme.com. The company makes an astonishing variety of products, all packaged in attractive containers. One of the owner’s personal favorites is the Wild Rose Lotion ($18.00). Customers agree, since they’ve rated this crowd-pleaser a solid five stars. It’s not hard to see why. The lotion is scented with real roses and is powerful, yet gentle enough for daily use. Fortified with sweet almond oil and shea butter, this concoction will gently soothe your skin’s wrinkles and replenish dry areas. You’ll want to use it again and again!
Give your face some love with Island Thyme’s Cucumber, Green Tea, and Pomegranate Face Cream ($23.00). The cucumber soothes, while the pomegranate seeds provide regenerative fatty acids. Green tea is a powerful antioxidant. This elixir is great for normal to oily skin types. Just apply a dab or two to your face and neck, and you’re ready for your busy day. The scent is light and pure, and you’ll feel refreshed after each use.
If you suffer from muscular soreness (and who doesn’t, at least occasionally?), you’ll love Island Thyme’s Deep Heat Analgesic Balm ($13.00). This two-ounce tin contains powerful medicine! Capsicum extract combines with menthol, St John’s Wort, arnica, and beeswax to create a soothing, healing balm for your body. You’ll tingle after each use. It’s great after yoga, running, and other workouts. Be sure to wash your hands after each use, because this balm is strong! You’ll feel stronger, as well.
Since Island Thyme uses beeswax and goat’s milk in some of their products, this is not a vegan line. However, their products are all vegetarian, and made from fresh, organic, cruelty-free ingredients. Many vegan options are available, so be sure to check the website. Each offering features an extensive ingredient list. Island Thyme offers free shipping in the US and Canada on all orders over $95, and a free gift on orders over $45. When you purchase products from this company, you’re supporting a family farm with impeccable standards. We hope you’ll be as thrilled by Island Thyme as we are!
