Keeping Your Skin in Harmony & Walking In Beauty
with native inspired bath and body care.

Made locally by Victoria White Eagle Noorlander,
Native herbalist, Reiki Usui and Karuna Teacher.

Victoria uses her native training in sacred herbals to create a unique line of soaps, alcohol free lotions, massage oils, soy candles and healing salve. Victoria is known throughout Utah and Colorado for her healing salve, made from locally grown piñon pitch and other ingredients, gathered by her family in the Moab area. It is a remedy that has been used by Native Americans for hundreds of years. The traditional way of making salve was to melt the piñon pitch with bear fat. When the Diné people started using sheep they would mix it with mutton fat or Vaseline bought from the local trading post.

Today Victoria blends the pitch of native piñon trees with coconut oil and soy oils to make this natural healing salve more soothing to dry skin and so that it doesn’t clog pores. Piñon pitch is best known for its ability to accelerate cell regrowth and is effect in killing bacteria. It helps to alleviate skin problems such as Eczema, Psoriasis, Bruising, Cracked Heals and Cuticles, Sun Burn, Chapped Lips, and neutralizes the poison from insect bites. You can also use the salve on pets.

Victoria’s unique line of hand blended bath and body care consists of Sage, Juniper and Sweet Grass as well as some of the old time favorites such as Lavender, Vanilla, Honey Almond and Fresh Garden Cucumbers. Victoria uses locally harvested plants, essential oils , all vegetable tallow ingredients and does not test her products on animals.

For those of us who have sensitive or damaged skin, her body care products offer a more natural way to keep your skin balanced and youthful. Victoria test her products herself to make sure they are gentle, soothing and don’t clog pores. Moisturizing for the driest of skin even in harsh desert climates like Moab, Utah.

Loving aromatherapy herself but sensitive to colognes and perfume, Victoria tries to offer products that are more user friendly and safer for homes and the environment. Victoria’s hand poured soy candles are a natural alternative for those of us who love to burn candles but worry about carbon fumes. Natural wax alternatives help support American farming. and contributes to the reduction of dependency of crude oil and has less soot output than paraffin.
