What a beautiful company, Belle Terre, creators of natural and organic handcrafted soaps and lip balms. It has been such positive, aesthetic experience learning about them. I was first drawn to the company by their artistic logo of a tree, and as I searched their site it became apparent they have a deep personal commitment to sustainability, reflected not only in their business but also in their lifestyle.

Belle Terra was created in an effort to produce beautiful products that reflected their own ideals; to use only the highest quality organic ingredients and to use an eco-friendly approach to packaging, “helping to create a cleaner and healthier world for everyone”. In addition to this commitment for their company, in their personal life, they are building their own home, growing their own food and following a plan to return to a much simpler lifestyle.
All the products are made on site in a small town in North Carolina. They are all natural and handcrafted in small batches. The soaps are made using a cold process soap method which allows it to retain the natural glycerin resulting in moisturized, smoother, softer skin. The lip balms are made using the beeswax from their own “lovingly-kept” backyard hives. The products are vegan friendly and preservative free.
I can’t say enough about the products themselves. The scents of the organic essential oil were all very pleasant, even the Patchouli which is a scent I usually don’t like, was subtle and nice. The soaps were gentle, moisturizing and lathered nicely! I could even use them on my face without any drying effects; it also removed all my make-up nicely.
There are many beautiful soap options to choose from; Lavender Oatmeal, Lemongrass Shea, Patchouli and Sweet Orange to name a few. The lip balms are made with natural beeswax and honey and come in mild scents of lavender, honey vanilla, mint and orange. I enjoyed the soothing nature of the combination of lavender, beeswax and honey.
Belle Terre provides gift sets and gift boxes that are attractively tied with a beautiful handmade sinamay ribbon or raffia depending on your selection. They would make a beautiful eco-friendly gift this holiday season!
