Londa is the owner and formulator for Londa’s Body Care, LLC. Londa’s love for making cold processed soap began after taking a class with a friend in Michigan. She learned that most of the soap that we purchase on the market today is not soap but a detergent. She was hooked from day one and started to make her own cold processed soap within weeks of taking her first class. Cold processed soap is moisturizing and less drying than most commercial soaps on the market. Londa has traveled and educated herself on how to formulate various skin care products using a natural preservative systems.
She receives tons of questions concerning how she acquired her knowledge of soap making and natural skin care products. It is an everyday learning experience and yearly she is always taking a class or workshop to help learn more about the craft. Sometimes it is not possible for those to travel as far as she has to learn so she decided to share what she loves and offer local classes. Of course the classes are not just limited to those that are local.
Londa has studied to become a certified aromatherapist. Londa has always had a love for essential oils and the physical and mental concerns that they address. It is a science behind aromatherapy and knowing the correct way and identifying the correct essential oils to use based on the chemical family and the components they are comprised of is priceless. Londa still formulates but would like to expand and deal with individuals on a personal level because making blends in larger quantities might not be specific to a person’s needs.

A big part of aromatherapy is smell which utilizes your olfaction membrane. Immediately upon smelling a scent, that message is transported to your limbic system. The limbic system is a part of the brain and it is the seat of our emotions. The power of the sense of smell is amazing, just think of the last time you smelled freshly baked pastrys and immediately you felt hungry!
