All rooms will feature Whispering Willow lotion, liquid hand soap, and they have also created adorable little guest soaps for bath and shower. As in the past, the lotion and solid soaps are all goat milk based…great for all skin types, especially the sensitive ones! Over the past 6 years, we have offered one exclusive scent here, and that will not change. Lavender has been and will remain the only scent used or offered. We have found that, not only is it a relaxing form of aroma therapy, but has been well received by men and women alike.
Our little gift shop will feature Whispering Willow products, as well. We will be selling not only the items we provide as amenities, but a number of other luxurious and attractively packaged products such as; solid lotion sticks, lip balm, sugar scrubs, bath salts, etc. Our hope is to continuously expand the product line offered as our guests fall in love with the products as we have!
One of the many things that attracted us to Whispering Willow is their commitment to natural and sustainable living. Only organic oils are used in their products and essential oils are used exclusively…absolutely no synthetic fragrance oils! When we initially approached Wayne about supplying products for Oak Hill, they did not offer a lotion in their standard product line because the only ingredients available were only 99.5% natural. Due to our specific situation, and the fact that goat milk is highly perishable, Wayne was able to formulate a special lotion just for Oak Hill. It is still paraben free, has no artificial colors or fragrances and, as is with all their products, handcrafted in North Carolina.
Whispering Willow uses recycled packaging and makes every effort to ensure it has the highest possible content of post consumer recycled materials. All of this means you can enjoy their products with peace of mind, knowing that their products are not only great for you, but they are also helping to create a cleaner and healthier world for everyone.
Wayne and Julia should also be commended for their commitment to charity. They have allocated 10% of all proceeds to The National Multiple Sclerosis Society, an organization that Julia and Wayne have recently become very committed to.
We have sincerely loved working with our previous supplier, Mountain Farm. Many thanks to Marilyn for introducing us to goat milk products and have heard from many guests and friends just how much they appreciated the healing all-natural aspects of goat milk products. We wish Marilyn all the best in her retirement and know that she will really appreciate that extra time with her new grandchildren. That said, we are also extremely excited to begin our relationship with our new partners, Whispering Willow. Wayne and Julia are terrific, and we look forward to offering their amazing products here at Oak Hill!
