Welcome to the new blog!

Elliott and Harrison, the inspiration behind Ellison’s Organics. No doubt they’re thinking up new ways to get extremely messy !

Welcome to the brand new blog for Ellison’s Organics!  My name is Carleigh, and I am the brains (on a good day) and the brawn behind Ellison’s Organics.  I make a wide variety of all-natural and organic health and beauty products to pamper, cleanse and heal you and your family.

I started making all natural/organic baby soap to clean my two boys – Elliott (3.5) and Harrison (11 months) – after realizing that there just wasn’t an affordable option for safe, organic bath products for kids.  I had become wary of the chemicals used in baby products, and have realized thast there is no need for nasty chemicals in beauty products! There are so many wonderful natural, organic ingredients that are nourishing, healing and pampering to our skin and bodies.

Our skin is our largest organ, and much of what we put on our skin is absorbed into our bloodstream.  I don’t want to put junk into my bloodstream, and I especially don’t want to put it into my babies’.  It’s my job to protect them for as long as I can, and I think that includes protecting them from unnecessary chemicals.  I’d better step off my organically made, ethically sourced soapbox before I really get going!

So there’s a little bit about why Ellison’s Organics got started.  From there, I branched out from baby soap into a lot of other fun products for kids, moms and dads!  Take a look at my organic lip balm, men’s hand repair balm and dinosaur soap.

I have found that having fun-shaped soap is a great motivator to encourage hand-washing among little kids.  It’s fun to grab a little dinosaur or brightly-colored building block and scrub away! Plus, the organic soap makes a lot of bubbles, and what kid doesn’t love bubbles?  As a mom, it pleases me to know that my kids are having fun, especially while doing a “chore.”

Thanks for stopping by!
