Welcome to our online store!
Our goal is to provide an economic empowerment program for survivors of sexual trauma/trafficking around hand-crafted home, bath & body products made from the highest quality of herbs and other natural ingredients. The majority of our survivors experience a number of insurmountable barriers to employment such as the lack of a GED, no legal work experience, lack of understanding of workplace relationships, and other legal charges that can take years to clear up.
If you would like to learn how you can engage in this amazing opportunity, or have a home party, please click here.
When we incorporate the use of herbs into our lives, we open up a whole new stratum of experiences that include working with and enjoying familiar scents and learning to appreciate new ones.
There are products for men, women, children and babies, and new mothers. Hope you will check them out and support survivors on their journey into wholeness.
At this time, our products can only be purchased through Agape Books & Café.
Quantities are Limited! However, you can special order any product!
If you are new to using herbal products using them is often a different experience than using ones with chemicals in them. For instance, butters and lotions are greasier than commercial brands. We encourage you to be patient and let the butters and oils slowly absorb into your skin. The greasiness will disappear and your skin will be very soft.

I had a really bad case of psoriasis. The only thing the doctor would give me was a steroid which I can only use in very limited doses. I used the Evergreen Forrest body butter on my open wound and it completely cleared it up. I was impressed! However, when I ran out of the body butter it did come back. I am now aware that skin issues are usually caused by gut issues. R1:99 told me that pine needles have a lot of medicinal properties in them. It’s the pine-infused oil that makes the difference in this body butter.

Milk baths are recorded back as far as the days of Cleopatra as a way to soften and moisturize the skin. Today, milk treatments are available in many spas, but you can treat yourself to one at home.
Milk & Honey Floral Bath
The milk and honey moisturize your skin and the flowers provide aromatherapy to help you relax. Because this bath soak contains dried florals, it is best to prepare this product as a tea. Place ingredients in a glass jar, add water, and seal. Let it steep for several hours (the same as you would for a tea to drink). Pour the contents through a strainer lined with a paper towel to catch the flowers (as they will clog your drain) into your warm bath. Enjoy.
Ingredients: coconut milk powder, honey powder, hibiscus, lavender, rose, & calendula flowers.
8 oz. $12.99
