Mmmmmm, what's that smell? It's so great you'll never forget it.


This is one amazing part of our endlessly fascinating bodies; the sense of smell. You can probably think of an overpowering cologne or perfume that immediately reminds you of a crush you had in high school. Or maybe a steaming, sizzling pan of garlic and spices that drew you in to vendors cart while walking through a market in India for a mouth watering meal that immediately transports you back 20 years ago.

Here's a good one: what about that last subway ride you had in NYC? Maybe it was a dead person (this literally happened to us), a fresh pile of vomit you're trying your best not to step in, or that unmistakable smell of the drunk guy huddled in the corner soaked in urine?


Sorry for those nasty "scentuals" but those memories come back immediately right?


Hmmm all that COVID subway cleaning didn't seem to last too long or in reality those smells are so powerful and run so deep, they will nevergo away.


I don't know about you buy I wish my academic recall worked as well as my scent memory!


Here in our little jungle paradise, we have all these amazing trees and plants growing that get used for our homemade disinfectants and our local soap lab uses to create their artisan soaps. Fresh, natural, zero waste, and incredibly sensual.


Speaking of which, there are a lot of freaky chemicals out there that you want to no part of touching your skin, your hair, or ingesting in your foods and this is something we take very seriously to protect our team and our guests.

At one point, when I learned about all the beautiful plants we have here I was super excited about making our own soaps until I met the sweet and passionate Melissa and Jean Carlos that own Amazilia Soap Lab in a nearby town. Thankfully, they "goat this" so I don't have to.

Started in 2013, Melissa and Jean created Amazilia Soap Laboratory & Lifestyle Co. What is now a well established, world wide business producing 100% natural artisan goats milk soaps and essential oil cocoa butter and coconut oil shampoos that are an experience in aromatherapy and will forever anchor you to this natural jungle setting.


So, if you are like many people on this planet that love natural products or perhaps suffer from chemical sensitivities, we got you. Not only that, we are super excited to share these beautiful experiences with you. We even have some for you to take home for that special person taking care of your dog, or watering your plants while you finally get OUT and explore this beautiful world again.
