A great organic, homemade remedy for those stuffy noses and annoying colds!
Camamu Soap partnered up with Mickelberry Gardens — a local Pacific Northwest small company crafting healing remedies from bee products and medicinal plants — to bring you a unique kit made of wholesome, healing organic ingredients. This kit is a safe and a natural way to help take care of those pesky cold symptoms: it helps support healthy immune function, re-mineralizes, decongests your nose, aids in circulation, and revives depleted energy. And everything in this kit smells and tastes deliciously!
Kit Includes: Camamu Stuffy Nose Soap, Mickelberry Gardens Elderberry Honey Tonic, and Stuffy Nose Oil Blend
Camamu Stuffy Nose Soap: Deeply moisturizing, re-mineralizing, and soothing, this soap is scented with an essential oil blend of eucalyptus, rosemary and peppermint, known to be decongestant, antiviral, antibacterial, pain-relieving, and to aid in circulation. It also revives depleted energy and enhances positivity.
Elderberry Honey Tonic, by Mickelberry Gardens: Made from organic apple cider vinegar, honey, elderberries and echinacea, this tonic is beyond yummy, and everything in it works to strengthen your immune symptom so it can whoop this cold’s a**.
Stuffy Nose Oil: eucalyptus, peppermint and rosemary essential oils in apricot carrier oil. This blend can be dabbed under your nose, rubbed on your chest, or added to a pot of hot water for a deep inhalation treatment, to help clear your airways throughout the day or night.
A $30 value if bought individually!

"Be in love with your life. Every minute of it." Jack Kerouac
Leave it to Jack to put it best. Indeed, what a gift, to be in love with YOUR life. Now that encompasses way more than just your lover. Love yourself, your quite perfect imperfections, and your biggest struggles (yes, that's right!, because they brim with opportunities for change), your friends, the quince branches on your kitchen table, your partners, the moon, your goofy pets, a sun-kissed peach, your family, the layer of cream on top of your milk, nature and the planet, and all the small magnificent everyday things in between.
Here at Camamu we have five scrumptious Valentine’s Day soaps to help you express your love— Night Jasmine Vetiver & Moon Milk, Milk & Rose Caresses, Glorious & Groovy Soap, Sweet Milk & Honey Soap, and last but not least In the Mood For Love: Cocoa Rose with a Cinnamon Twist. And we also have some whimsical fresh flower bouquets and darling heart-shaped succulent gardens, you can keep tending long past Valentine's day.

Happy New Year!
May you live this new year in good health, with intention, gratitude and love. And most of all, remember to live each moment fully!
For us, 2017 has been quite the ride! We were musing about this on December 31st in Vienna, at the bohemian Cafe Hawelka, a crowded dimly-lit space filled with good cheer and warmth, sipping our Cafe Melange (a sort of Viennese Cappuccino with more coffee and less milk). The overwhelming feeling we felt looking back at 2017 was GRATITUDE, for being the lucky new Camamu Soap keepers, for getting to work together with an amazing team creating organic awesomeness for you, for getting to meet many of you, and for the larger Camamu family, round the planet - a fun lot, who loves organic, is ethically responsible towards the environment, and enjoys the handmade and quirky in life.
One of the things we love most about Camamu is the nod back to the time of our grandmothers, the time of wildcrafting, of things made from old recipes by hand, with loving care, in big pots on the stove, stirred often, and fussed over. We love the charm of things coming into being slowly, teasingly, and asking for patience.
If you've ever had the pleasure to step into the back of our studio, you would feel like you've stepped inside a magical kitchen. There are white tables, stoves, wooden shelves lined with rows of jars filled with delightful herbs, dried flowers, and spices. There are drums filled with fresh and creamy plant butters with exotic names, like coconut, shea, avocado, there are glass jars on the window sill with nourishing golden, amber, green herbal infusions doing their magic in the sun. And last but not least, there is the array of exotic essential oils from all over the globe, with scents divine.
Next comes the cooking of the soap, the stirring it in big pots, the pouring it in hand-made trays, the covering it up in blankets to let it do its alchemical thing, and then after a few days, the unveiling, and the cutting it by hand, like trays of freshly baked cake…Now, this IS magic!
The making of soap has always reminded Anca of the way her grandma in Transylvania made a special Christmas treat known in Romanian as 'cozonac' -- a golden airy-flufy-melt-in-your-mouth sweet bread made with layers of roasted walnuts and rum, or poppy seeds and sugar, or little chunks of Turkish delights -- her recipe passed down from her mother, and her grandmother before that. She, too would stir these big pots, wafting the yummiest aroma, knead the dough by hand for a long, long time, then pour it in vats she covered with blankets for the deliciousness to rise and be baked to perfection. Stu finally got to experience this almost-impossible-to-describe-in- words treat this Christmas, when Anca's mom made it in Germany for our family’s international Christmas, which included Stu's family who had come from Ireland to join in the celebrations!
Anyway, in so many words, we love Camamu Soap, we are grateful to make all these goodies for you, and we are thrilled when you stop in on rainy days (sans umbrellas) and strike up tidbits of conversation with us about the soap (or not about the soap), but always a delightful way to connect briefly, in a world where so much is mass-produced and faceless.
THANK YOU for all your support, and come by often!

We are sooo excited about this array of precious little gifts! These soaps and the cute little boxes they are ensconced in are a limited edition designed especially for the Holidays. The scents are delicious, ranging from bright, citrusy and uplifting to warm and soothing, and spicy honeyed steamy chai. The boxes are hand-drawn, and the little tins are Turkish.
Dear Camamu friends,
It’s been tooooo long, but we’re back, and we have lots to catch up on!
We’ve been crazy-busy creating a delightful assortment of goodies for you & your four-legged friends. Had a blast making twenty (!!!) - yeah 20, NEW organic body care delights, full of love, merriment, and giggles, and we've gathered a few other treats for you as well ;-)
This cornucopia has butters for your heels, safflower and citrus sugar scrubs, bath salts studded with magical herbs, flowers and spices, rose clay foot soaks for tired tootsies, bees’n raspberries lip balms, cardamom/cinnamon chap sticks (yumm!), Zen kits to keep you grounded and nourished, exquisite oil fragrances, organic vinegar rinses infused with roses, lavender, nettles and lemon verbena to keep your tresses shiny and healthy, and a spirited tonic and aftershave.
Now for the soaps: Prairie Rain was inspired by our trip to Georgia O’ Keefe’s ranch this summer -- it is the prettiest creamy soap with wisps of green clay, teensy dots of poppy seeds and sprinkles of periwinkle corn flower petals; Minty Passion has a tingly refreshing scent you won’t be able to get enough of; Flowers Whisper will transport you to a fragrant garden no matter what the season, and Dreamy Sky is well, that gorgeous Pacific Northwest grey-blue sky color with amber sunset swirls to soothe your body and soul.
And, last but not least, we’ve gathered a beautiful array of genuine Pestemal Turkish Towels and blankets woven on the loom. Oh, and we almost forgot to mention: we now have soft immaculate white organic cotton robes woven in a pretty waffle pattern.
