Jacquelyn Ramsey is the founder, formulator and president of WoodSprite Organic Body, a manufacturer of handmade organic spa and body care products since 1999.
At WoodSprite Organic Body, our sole purpose is to bring you Blissfully Effective, 100% Natural, World-Class Organic Spa and Body Products of Uncompromised Quality.
And quality begins with our pure botanical ingredients. We use only the finest whole or organic herbs and herbal extracts, distilled pure essential oils and cold-pressed, exotic organic fruit and nut oils and butters in our products. We choose to let our ingredients lists speak for themselves. We like to rely on our happy customers to spread the word about us, and prefer to invest in the quality of our ingredients rather than in wasteful packaging or marketing gimmicks. We pay special attention to the details; every one of our organic soaps, spa & body items or soy aromatherapy candles are lovingly made “from scratch” and entirely by hand in small batches, enabling us to maintain our high standard of purity. Real people make our products, not machines. And you can tell. When it comes to handmade soaps, there is a difference, and we strive to set the standard by which all others are compared. We excel in quality, performance, service and style.
But perhaps what truly sets WoodSprite apart is our unwavering commitment to ecological sustainability. It is at the root of all our efforts and the heart of our business. All people make a difference; every single day each of us makes choices which affect every other living creature. Whether we do so consciously or not, whether the effect is positive or not, we all have an impact. Mahatma Gandhi said, “You must be the change you wish to see in the world”. It was this simple philosophy that gave birth to WoodSprite in the first place. And it is the philosophy which guides our business practices every day. We use only botanical and certified organic ingredients; never chemicals or other harsh fillers. We utilize recycled materials for our simple packaging. We use and reuse whenever possible, minimizing our impact on landfills and the waste stream. We also tithe a percentage of our company’s pre-profit income to grassroots organizations working to promote sustainable living, conservation, preservation and protection of wild or endangered creatures and places. We want the difference we make to be a positive one.
So each time you enjoy one of our organic soaps, or soak up some of our organic whipped shea butter, or take in the uplifting scent of our soy aromatherapy candles, you can rest assured that it is made of the purest possible ingredients, with a great deal love and mindful attention. Our products may smell wonderful, and they may feel even better, but most important of all, they’re good for you and the planet we share.
In a world where the dizzying pace of daily life is leaving us stressed and increasingly disconnected from nature, each other and even our selves, we here at WoodSprite try to bridge the gap between intention and spirit by offering simple luxuries that raise the value of every day experiences. Sure, maybe it’s a lofty notion to think that a bar of soap can be therapeutic, but sometimes it’s the little things–such as a whiff of real grapefruit on a dreary winter afternoon or the tingle of mint on your toes after a long, hot day on your feet–that give us permission to stop for just a moment, and simply be. Small pleasures to bring a smile to your face; little acts of self-kindness which help us to cope, help us reconnect to our source. We spend so much of our time running to keep up, we tend to forget that we need to refuel. Can a bar of soap help us do that? Absolutely. And so, dear friend…pause, inhale, enjoy. Repeat as necessary.
