This April, The Green Phoenix Gallery is pleased to feature the hand blended artisan soaps, lotions and balms of Jennifer Dowling.
As a mother of two, Jennifer did all she could to protect her kids from the elements. “From sunlight, to bug bites, to the occasional scraped knee; I tried every over the counter ointment, lotion and balm available. Finding no remedy that worked and inspired my daughter’s chronically chapped lips and my son’s dry hands, I decided to try making my own. With a little experimentation, a lot of research, and a healthy dose of love, I blended my first product and Winter Wonder lip balm was born.”
Since then, Jen’s Blends has grown from a home remedy hobby to a complete line of personal body and skin care products – including beautiful handmade artisan soaps, hand spun luxurious lotions, goat milk body creams and more than 15 varieties of lip balms – all using natural and organic ingredients.
“In addition to finding that Jen’s products really work,” says gallery owner Andi Tassencourt, “they are like beautiful works of art; and are a wonderful complement to the international flavor of hand crafted works by our Fair Trade artisans, in combination with our eclectic mix of fine, artisanal crafts by local artists and oil paintings by Diane DuBois Mullaly. All come together to offer an environment with a full range of creative arts for the community to enjoy!”
And Frivolous Fibers Yarn Boutique, located inside The Green Phoenix Gallery, adds even more interest, featuring a collection of its own line of gorgeous, hand-spun, and hand-dyed yarns. Stop by to see and feel the yarn for yourself and ask about knitting and crochet lessons and groups.
