I recently had the chance to sample a few of Maple Hill Naturals products. I was sent a 4 pack of Unscented Wool Dryer Balls, Peppermint Essential Oil Soap, and Peppermint Essential Oil Lip Balm to try out. As soon as I opened the box, I knew I was in for a great smelling treat.
Unscented Wool Dryer Balls have been a great addition to the laundry routine. They are very soft and I almost lost one to my daughter who thought it was a great size to play with. I have been using them for towel, bedding, and cloth diaper inserts loads and they have been giving me some soft, fresh smelling laundry. I have one of those smart dryers that adjusts the time accordingly so I set a timer one day with the amount of time that the dryer started at and it did end early. It wasn’t much time, but given that I wash something most days that saved time adds up.
They also have Scented Dryer Balls and DIY Scent Kits to add essential oils to them at home.
Maple Hill Naturals Wool Dryer Balls have a great story. They are made right here in the USA with wool off the sheep from the owner’s father’s farm in West Lafayette, IN. They are made by moms with young kids and completely natural colored with NO harmful and irritating dyes added.
The Peppermint Essential Oil Soap has been wonderful. The peppermint is a nice, refreshing scent to get the day going. It has left my skin feeling soft, I haven’t felt any residue nor drying type of feeling on my skin. I usually use a wash cloth with bar soap and this bar makes a nice lather. It also has oatmeal in the bar which has been great to use on some lovely rough patches that this never ending winter has brought on. I also developed a bit of a cold lately so the burst of peppermint in the shower has helped me breath a little better in the mornings.
All of their natural soaps are made using the old world “cold processing” technique. No heat or chemicals are added producing a bar rich in natural glycerin and luxurious natural oils.
Finally, I had been experiencing horribly cracked lips with all this dry air when I found out about Maple Hill Naturals. I have used other natural lip balms before that felt too gritty or drugstore lip balms that were too greasy. Peppermint Essential Oil Natural Lip Balm was neither. It left my lips soft but not sticky. It helped heal up my lips and my daughters’ dry lips as well. The scent is nice but doesn’t stay long, which I like.
