This Week at Kuna Farmers Market by Cheryl McCord Juanita Cates, the creator of Betty Jean's Bloomers, is offering a gift basket full of her handcrafted soaps, lotions, bath salts, and towels in a raffle. The proceeds from the raf- fle will benefit the Finch family in Kuna who lost their home to fire in early June. After her mother, Betty Jean Ellibee, passed away in March, Juanita was inspired to start the business with the help of her aunt in Portland who taught Juanita the art and science of traditional cold-processed soap making. Juanita took this knowledge and combined it with her interests in aromatherapy to develop a full line of soothing and heal- ing soaps along with complementary lotions, bath salts, and candles. Cold-processed soaps benefit the skin because the natu- ral saponificiation process that occurs when lye is combined with water and oils maintains the efficacy of the oils in the soap. The hot process used in making commercial soap can cause the oils to become rancid. Another benefit of cold-processed soap is that all of the glycerin, a natural moisturizer, remains in the soap. Com- mercial soaps produced with the hot method cause the glyc- erine to separate. Much of the glycerine is then drained off and sold to make other products. Juanita formulates her products for specific purposes by selecting different oils and adding other natural ingredients such as vitamin E, aloe vera, and essential oils. For example, Oatmeal Milk and Honey is excellent for children and others with sensitive skin. The Calendula Petals bar soothes skin inflammations and Tea Tree is a good antiseptic soap. Stop by the Market and visit Juanita at the Betty Jean's Bloomers booth for samples of her products and purchase tickets for the git basket to be given away. The Kuna Farmers Market is held Saturdays from 9 am to 12 noon at Sandstone Plaza.
