We are now a certified Green Business.

We have been working really hard over the last few years to become a green business. Recently we received our certificate stating we are now a Green Business. We made a lot of changes to the way we do things here at Cupertino Soap Company. We buy green products when ever we can. We changed our sink aerators to low flow, and use reclaimed water to irrigate our landscape. Replacing regular light bulbs with the new CFL bulbs helped alot! We recycle everything and compost. There is so much you can do to be green, every little thing can make a difference. We hope you will go green too!

Tub Tea

Tub tea is a wonderful little secret for your skin. Botanicals  and herbs can sooth your skin and your soul. Tub teas generally should be put in a muslin pouch then run under warm bath water, let is "steep" for a few minutes before getting in. Most teas don't have much of a fragrance but the benefits of the herbs are good for your skin. Below is one of my recipes for tub tea.

¼ cup lavender buds
¼ cup chamomile buds
¼ cup rose petals
¼ hibiscus petals
¼ cup calendula petals
Mix all together in a large bowl. Put a scoop of tea in a muslin bag and run under warm bath water.
