Sunday Mostly Cloudy 54° In Raleigh NC
December is the Months of My Grandmother’s Santa Lucia Borba born in Italy in December 25, 1904, Immigrate to Brazil in 1917,who pioneered the natural handcrafted soap industry with essential oils in Brazil. , From the South To the Rainforest of Brazil Santa Lucia had to learn to (make soap from scratch) and essential oils from the plants out of necessity.
Here is a picture of Santa Lucia (Grandma) Grandma kept a great big garden in her backyard. She loved to grow her own vegetables and had a variety of plants and herbs as well.
Some of the oils Grandma’s extracted from the plants in the Rainforest she used to use and recommend as aromatherapy and home cures for a variety of ailments and skin conditions.
Santa Lucia was also a Santa Claus with her Saint Soaps and Herbs she help many of people in the Rainforest .
Three generations later with the basic knowledge of soap working taught by my maternal grandmother I had made my first bar of soap at age seven .Grandma’s Lye Soap” I am proud to carry the name , I am even more proud to carry on the tradition of creating unique soap with the Rainforest herbs , spices oils and scent secret tradition ,
and to bring her legacy to United States of America.
Early Happy Birthday and Merry Christmas to my Santa , Saint Claus Saint Lucia .
(Love and Respect).
