At Joyful Mountain, we believe that great products are produced by great ingredients and people who care. That's why we only use high quality ingredients in our products! In fact, the reason we started making our own soaps, balms, and oils was to ensure quality and save money. Why pay a premium price for a Name-Brand product when we have the knowledge and skills to make a premium product and save?
At Joyful Mountain, we've been using essential oils for about 13 years, and have been blending our own high-quality oils for about 10 years. We've done extensive research and continue to study and learn daily as more scientific studies give us new insight; and, as a safe-guard , we consult with a food scientist, nutritionist, and dietitian on a regular basis.
What drives us is the health of our own family (we are a young family of eight), and the promise that we're bringing you only the best. We want our friends and family to have wonderful products that they can trust -- and that don't break the bank. Our products are for people who don't need to have a high-dollar Name-Brand to make them feel right.
How It Works
People frequently ask us how we can supply high-quality oils for such a low price - in fact, for less than 1/2 the cost of other Name-Brand companies. They think it must be a scam. It's not. We don't have hundreds of employees or up-lines to pay (how do you think they pay for those "free oils" every month?). We don't expense cruises or yearly conventions. Our website is pretty plain, and we don't hire professional photographers or an answering service. We do it all ourselves. That's how we save everyone a lot of money. That's the way small businesses should work; and that's why shopping small and local is so much better for everyone.
As far as the quality of the oils -- For every oil that we sell, we have a Certificate of Analysis that gives us detailed quality information about the oils. That means we know the properties of the oils, how they're produced, and how medicinal they are, just like the big Name-Brand companies. We get our oils from many of the same distributors that produce for the Name-Brand companies. Let's just say that we know what happens to the oils from the time they're seeds to the time they're plants, and then turned into oils and sealed in bottles, just like the big companies.
People sometimes ask if we produce our own oils. Not yet (that's the short answer). But no other company, that we're aware of, produces all of its oils, either...although their advertising gimmicks pose a pretty good front.
Soaps and Balms
Making soap and balms came naturally for us, as we're farmers and gardeners. We grow the loofahs, milk the sheep, use local honey and beeswax. Sometimes we want a pure, simple soap and that's what we have in our Castile and Stain-Out soaps. We've never seen a soap that removes stains as well as our Stain-Out bar! We love sheep-milk and charcoal soaps for gentle cleansing of faces and bodies. All of the products start as whole ingredients, which ensures a luxurious and wholesome product every time.
