About Us
At Black Sands Emporium, Inc., my goal is to
provide the highest quality handcrafted products I
can make at affordable prices.
I began making soap as a child while helping my grandma. She made several
batches a year to take to the Navajo and Hopi Indians living on the reservations
outside of Flagstaff, Arizona. Here is an article I wrote several years ago for
Enzine Articles
 When Grandma's Soap Went to Arizona.

While we lived in Florida, I opened a small web based business, Grandma And Me
Soaps, where I made and sold handcrafted soap and body products.  We also
took our products to the local farmers markets and craft shows in the Tampa
area.  We closed Grandma And Me in 2013.

In 2016 I retired from the Department of Veterans' Affairs and we moved to the Big
Island of Hawaii. I decided to resume making soap and body products, and
opened Black Sands Emporium, Inc. From September 2016 through July of 2020,
we operated a small shop in Kona, but now offer our products exclusively through
our website.

Grandma And Me Soaps was all about soap and body products, however, Black
Sands has added
Industrial Hemp Extract products  See my page "What Is
Industrial Hemp Cannabidiol" to learn more about this all natural medical miracle.

Our Industrial Hemp Extract products are made using the highest quality
cannabidiol, which is legal in all 50 States and our territories.  The Extract is
manufactured at one of the first of three accredited labs in Colorado.  I only
purchase Industrial Hemp Extract Cannabidiol processed with CO2.  Because we
are not recreational here in Hawaii, all products that can be ingested are infused
with industrial hemp crystal isolate, which has ZERO THC.  I am a red head, but I
do not look good in that shade of orange, so we stay legal.  I use industrial hemp
full spectrum in my body products, which is 85% CBD no more than 0.03% THC.  
Topicals will not break the blood barrier wall so small amounts of THC are
completely safe in salves, lotions and such.  

I love to hear from everyone, especially those whose passion runs along the same
lines as mine. So please drop me a line and if you have questions or give me a
call or e-mail.
My little grandma Mae
Moore who taught me
soap making.
