Introducing our new addition!

Introducing our new addition! This is our restoration cream that has been a hit since Thanksgiving 2010. It all started out with a busy day in the shop. I started to make a batch of our traditional lotion. I measured out all of the ingredients, added some love & turned the blender on. Soon after, the door opened with a customer and then another and then another. I would turn the blender off in between customers, however before I knew it it was 4:30 and this batch had been blending for the entire day. What was I left with you ask? A very dense, rich cream that only some cracked nasty spots could love! So it had already been blended to the point of no return so why not add some more organic shea butter. I continued to blend (why had been going all day anyway)and then the scooping began. A thick, awesome creation was born! The first batch was given out to 50 lucky Black Friday Customers. I figured folks were going to just be happy with a freebie and that would be it. We would go back to our traditional products. No way, no how. They have been coming in since asking for the "Restoration" cream that has been working for their husbands, mothers, fathers, hands, fingers, elbows, cracked feet, etc. So here we go. Another addition to our family of products! It has now been uploaded to the website and ready to go!
Happy New Year! May you be full of dirt and grime and have nothing but time!

Curing, Pouring & Boxing Up Some Soap for the Big Day!

We are preparing for the Big Day After Thanksgiving! We are currently mixing, pouring & labeling lots of goodies for the shelves. We have over 600 bars of soap curing! This is no small task for it takes at least 6 weeks for these bad boys to cure. But have no fear, the soap will be here! Early birds will cash in on some extra savings at 8am on Friday, however if you can't make it out that early, we will be open until 6pm and 5pm on Saturday. Check back on this blog to make sure you are up to date on the latest savings!
Happy Thanksgiving! We are thankful for each and every one of you!

NYC Marathon 2010!

Wow. What a year we have had! We gave the shop a face lift, added some new products, tightened up some loose ends, partnered up with a couple of new ventures, went to the Emmy Awards and sponsored a runner in the NYC marathon.
I have got to say...this was one of the best things we sponsored all year. It all started over a sippy in a joint in NYC while working at the Emmy gig. George (pictured above) was talking about running the NYC Marathon and my ears perked up! A second consecutive visit to NYC and another sippy later, I agreed to get this fella geared up with some HSCo attire. It actually turned out to be a last minute thing, but our LOCAL folks in Asheville NC from On a Roll Screenprinting were able to get this shirt ordered, printed and sent out within 2 days. Can't beat the local support!
George finished in 3:18 and we were so proud to see this pic of him! On the back of the shirt it read "George is FAST & DIRTY"! What a trooper he was to represent HSCo!
Hopefully next year I will be running the NYC Marathon with a WaynesVegas crew!
Thanks again for listening to this crazy ole soap chic! Till next time...

Fresh Batch of Sugar Scrub

Just to keep you in the loop...these lil gems have been our #1 selling product this year. Best thing about these sugar scrubs is that they got their fame all by "word of mouth"! They truly are one of the best things in the shop. Its multi-tasking at its finest! Simply go into the shower, rinse, scrub & rinse again. Once you step out of the shower, pat dry and you will notice tiny beads of jojoba oil (say that 10 times fast) on your bod...simply rub in and moisturizer needed. Soft and elegant all day long! Great for feet as well! I recommend this product from neck down! A bit too oily for the face, but if you are so inclined...go for it!

A fresh batch of Honey Oatmeal Sugar Scrub is shown above! YUM!

We are Back from THE EMMYS!

Whew...we are back from the Emmys. Physically a bit tired, but emotionally charged! We felt honored to be among the many fine companies that were chosen for the 31st Annual News & Emmy Awards. We started at 6am loading all of the boxes to send over to Lincoln Center. And then we were off to assemble 700 bags. These are just a few pictured above. So we assembled until about 2:30 or so and then it was time to get ready for the Pre-Emmy Cocktail Party. It was there that were able to take it all in. What a fabulous opportunity this little ole soap company was presented! We did indeed get to see the Emmy Awards Ceremony and that too was a wonderful experience. After the show it was back to work where we handed out Emmy Bags to folks like Katie Couric, Jim Leherer & many fine documentary folks among the Newscasters we are all accustomed to seeing each night on the ole boob tube.
It was a long fun filled day with lots of laughs, new friends were made and lots of stories I like to say I will save for the nursing home!
Don't still have time to put your name in for the free $150 gift basket if you come in to buy something in our retail store. Winner will be announce on Monday October 4th!

Pre-Order Your VERY OWN Emmy Box!

We are finally catching our breathe and want you to join in on the excitement. So before I head off to NYC for the 31st Annual News & Documentary Emmy Awards, I am going to dig deep and crank out some more Emmy Boxes for you guys! We will discount these to $10/box. Included in the box will be a travel size wash, 4oz sugar scrub & lip balm. These are not only the perfect way to join in on the excitement, but also a perfect little box to stash away for last minute gifts. The goods will be wrapped up in the box shown above. Pre-orders have begun and will be ready by Friday!!!

Tuesday, September 21, 2010

Whew...they are in route!

And...break! We did it!!!! Over 2000 samples were stirred, poured & labeled to send off to the 31st News Emmy Awards! This lil gem pictured above is getting EMPLOYEE of the YEAR because she was able to crank out 700 sugar scrubs!
We had tons of love and support within the past 48 hours and I really can't believe how stress free the whole process was in the end! Really...we are totally a day ahead of schedule. But I am going to say, we could NOT have done any of this without the crew that showed up at the shop! Not enough words to say how THANKFUL we are for the tribe we have by our side. So excited to help out with the Pre-Emmy events on Monday. I leave for NYC on Friday and hope to have lots of stories to tell!

Till then...please go and get dirty so you can get some soap! :)

2800 Samples to the Emmys! is a bit past 8:30 (Can you tell we have been hangin with our Scottish Friends all day?). Miss Eva reported for "friend duty" at 9am or so and was a HUGE help! The rest of the Bishop Clan followed soon after and we were able to crank out 700 body washes and close to 700 Shea Butter Sugar Scrubs for the "Wee Emmys"! (LOL) We cranked the music, fed the kids a bucket of chicken and were soon met by Chris and Sherryl who were on "Lip Balm Patrol"! They got right to work and have cranked out over 600 lip balms in over 2 days. We are so thankful for the continued support, the drop ins who give us a good cheer & the high fives from everybody that love us! So many local business owners realize the amount of work that has to be done in order to arrive at the Emmys. Cody, from In Touch 254 & Craig from Highland Painters are among the local biz folks who realize you are only as good as your good ole fashion hard work. Just when we were getting so stinkin tired...they showed up with tons of energy and support. We will forever be grateful for everyones friendship and love. We are going to go put the kids to bed and call it a day. Started at 8am this morning and will go strong through tomorrow!
Till then...

We are Going to the EMMYS!!!!

Dear Loyal Hazelwood Soap Co Fans,

We are so excited because we were contacted yesterday by the folks who are in charge of getting those sassy Swag Bags ready for the Emmy Awards. They have chosen OUR PRODUCTS (ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh) to be part of the 31st Annual News Emmys held on September 27 in NYC! So we will be getting 2800 samples ready to ship off this Tuesday to the Big Apple. These little puppies will be given out to 700 distinguished guests including Katie Couric, Charles Gibson, etc.

We promise to make you all proud! I mean REALLY proud. I will head off to NYC on Friday and help out with the bags, etc on Monday before the big event! Can you HEAR the crazy excitement in this lil ole soap shop!

We will be having a "Going to the EMMYS" Sale soon. This is going to cost us a bit to put out these samples, but this is where your continued support means the world to us. If you are thinking about purchasing a future gift, throwing the idea around of surprising your friends with a special treat, or you just think its time you got something for yourself...THIS IS THE WEEK TO DO IT! Am I begging...maybe just a bit, but we are going to the Emmys despite budget! :) Its the Emmys for craps sake!

Basically, we are all going to the Emmys. I will just be the physical being there. I will keep you all posted on the details and possible photos that may come about. Now off to make 2800 samples! (oh we only needed 700 but who can choose just one to give to Barbara Walters right?)

Monthly Specials

Whew...its like Baskin Robbins in here sometimes with all the flavors we carry. So, for the Soap Makers Sanity, we have decided to narrow down our actual stocked scents and then put some of your favs on special each month. What does this mean you ask...well, when you scent is up at bat, get em while they are in stock. We will put the monthly scent on sale. For example Bergamot Coriander Exfoliating Wash and 8oz Shea Butter Lotion are now $14 or 2 for $25 (normally $16 each) and the 16oz lotion is $22 (normally $28). However, when the month is up so is the scent. If we have some will know because those puppies will be discounted even more! So stay tuned...
Now go get dirty!

The Mother Load!

Yeah Dawg! I love making these natural goodies. This is how we started, with a good ole fashion bar of soap. But unlike your Granny's Soap, we are able to use luxurious oils (instead of kitchen fat scraps) and wonderful essential oils. The web has provided a vast amount of resources throughout the world. So even folks in WaynesVegas can get the best essential oils.

I am excited to put this new soap out. It is being named THE MOTHER LOAD! It has so many goodies in it that no other name does it justice. Included in this creation is an essential herbal blend, French Clay, Peppermint essential oil, Oats, Jojoba Meal, Apricot Meal & lots and lots of love. This should be ready in about 3 more weeks. Till then...

Here we have Mr. Teagan stocking the shelves. He is a great helper. Teagan is our official "greeter". He loves helping with the windows and dusting the shelves.

We look forward to seeing you all soon and we are excited to share what surprises we have in the works. There are lots of new and exciting things underway!

Have a good day. Just thought I would share one of the reasons why I love having this business...Teagan gets to come to work with me!

Signature Soy Wax Candles with NEW Recycled Glass Containers!

Looking for that perfect gift? Look no further...Our Signature Soy Wax Candle is THE perfect gift. It is accompanied by our Chocolate Brown Box & Sassy Ribbon. This year, we tweaked our packaging even more. We have chosen to go with a more Eco Friendly Alternative. Our Soy Wax Candles are now being served up in an 8.5oz Sassy Recycled Glass Container. Still have the same delicate scents added with a cotton wick, but various different colors offered. Here you will see an example of the packaging with our POPULAR Violet Lime Candle. We haven't even tapped into our busy time yet and we have sold out of our candles in the first week of reopening. Oh yeah, forgot to mention that they come with a metal holder as well. Price is only $18. Great, great, great gift for anyone. If this doesn't say BRING ON SPRING... I don't know what would! Have a great day!

Ahhhhhhhhhhh....Can you smell the Love?

Ahhh...can you smell the cinnamon & other warm spices in our Hazelwood Harvest Blend? Everytime I make a batch of our Infamous Natural Shea Butter Bar of Soap, it makes me happy! Its very pure, lots of love has been put into it & its the very first recipe I claimed as my own. Its hard to believe it has been 9 years now since I first made our first batch of soap! Whew...time flies by. Well, I thought I would share this gem with everyone and let you know that we will have lots of bar soap in stock just in time for Easter Basket fillers and Spring Time Fun! These puppies take 6-8 weeks to cure. I told you that there is a lot of love & patience involved, but well worth the wait!

2010 Feeling Dirty Contest Winner...Olie!!!

Here we have OLIE...Our 2010 Feeling Dirty Contest Winner. I think we can all agree that this was a fab pic. The winner of this photo receives 12 FREE gifts from us for the 2010 year. We are happy to send one of our products each month to the winner. If you did not get your entry in for the 2010 contest, no worries. We do this every year.

Take as many pictures as you would like in your Feeling Dirty Shirt (G-Rated Photos only please) and submit them to us by email or snail mail. You have until Dec 31, 2010 to enter. The most original photo wins. The Laursen Clan chooses the winner! We will post the 2008 year winner as well eventually! So GO GET DIRTY!!!

Hazelwood Soap Company.Waynesville.North Carolina

Nestled in a little town about 30 minutes outside of Asheville, NC is where good ole Waynesville NC sits. We are surrounded by beautiful mountains, vibrant colors and inspiration on a daily basis. We are lucky to live in such a wonderful place let alone have a business where people from all over the world visit. If you are ever in the area we would love for you to stop by!

A Great Way to Scent a Room without a Flame!

Our Reed Diffusers have always been a hit with our customers for a couple of reasons. As with all of our products, we do not over do it with the scent. We also use a large amount of oil in our recipe so that your diffuser will have a long life! Many companies add a substantial amount of alcohol, hence the rapid evaporation. You do want some alcohol in there in order for the scent to permeate throughout the reeds, but you should not have it evaporate within a couple of weeks. Our large reed diffusers tend to last anywhere from 9-12 mos. depending on how humid your environment is. Please feel free to contact us with any and all questions. Our top sellers are the Warm Spice and Walk in the Woods. Both are inviting and not overwhelming. We also have a Seasonal Scent so stay tuned! We have recently changed our bottles to a larger and thicker glass bottle.

Mr. Teague Reporting for Work!

If you are new to our company, we are a family owned business. It has always been our goal to keep our 4 kids by our side. We just think that they are great people and love being around them. So, Mr. Teagan (age 3) has been at the shop since we opened. He learned to crawl, walk and now help unload shipments with us all while being at the shop with his mom or dad by his side. Has it been easy? Not always, but has it been worth it...Yep. We wouldn't trade it for anything in the world. The other 3 kids help out at the shop as well. They all get off of the bus in front of the shop, go to the back for a snack, work on homework and then do a couple of chores each. We truly have a family owned business from start to finish. It works out great...the kids even get the chance to have their friends pop in for a brief visit occasionally. We really couldn't ask for a better scenario. If you do get a chance to visit the shop, you will often find Teagan in his PJ's and slippers. This kid has absolutely no worries! :)

This picture was before we reopened for 2010. 2 large pallets arrived and it was just me and Mr. Teague tackling each 1000 # pallet. He is the best!

Sneak Peek at Our New Spring 2010 Scents! Shhh...

So we are now on our way to mixing, labeling and really producing our Spring 2010 scents. Many of you are the ones who have chosen these little bad boys without even knowing it! The BAMBOO made a special "Guest Appearance" at the end of 2009 and the feedback was amazing. It is a clean, crisp, earthy BUT definitely not overwhelming scent. Great Unisex scent as well. We have decided to carry this gem in Handwash, Bodywash, Lotion & Our Signature Shea Butter Sugar Scrub.

The Fresh is pretty great, in my opinion. I am the one who is making everything so for me to like a scent after making about 9million (not really, but a lot of them for sure) that says a lot. Very clean, citrus based scent that works well with others. Great scent for those BLAH days.

Now lets talk about lil Miss Lovely...our latest and greatest. Again, I love a scent when it arrives and I love it all the way to the shelf, but after a gazillion I am not so in love anymore. I absolutely love, love, love LOVELY. I immediately made all of my favorite products in this scent and took them home. I actually couldn't wait to use the lotion. That says a lot! Its kind of like if you made cookies all day, the last thing you want to do is pop one of those bad boys in your mouth. Well, after making lotion all day I feel like I am plenty lotioned up. All I am saying is Lovely is now my favorite. Stop in one day and let me know what you think. Till then...
