We Continue To Prepare For SPRING!!!

Only 7 more weeks until Spring! ONLY! Whew...we are ready now! I get it, I get it...we are supposed to be patient. Well, nothing teaches me patience more than my good ole fashion Shea Butter Soap Recipe. These bars take 6-8 weeks to cure. We are just about there.
I have decided to spend most of my time when I have been able to get into the shop, making lots and lots of bar soap. It makes me so happy everytime one of these babies are sold! They are made with so much love that it just gives me treat feelings everytime someone expresses how much they love them. I will save my comments for those who think otherwise. :)
I also love having tons of bar soap in stock because it reminds me of our humble beginnings. "One bar at a time" was my motto most days and that is exactly what we have done to build our business. One bar at a time!
In order to try and get out of the "Winter Funk", I have been focusing on SPRING SCENTS!!!! Pictured above is our Zucchini Flower & Honey bar soap. Cherry Blossom, Basil & Herb Gardeners Soap, Earth Blend and a couple of others will be out on the shelves in just 2 weeks. We are NOT waiting 7 weeks until Spring over here! Thanks for all of your continued support and loyalty. Now, go get dirty!
Till next time...

A New Creation Has Been Born!

Inspiration has arrived! And with this inspiration we give you...Nitty Gritty Body Scrub! That's right, its time to get to the "Nitty Gritty" of the situation! Whether you don't have time, have neglected special spots or just have never had an interest to exfoliate, may we suggest our new Nitty Gritty Scrub. Ah...there are so many good things happening with this one little jar of goodness. This Northerner is getting down to her Soulful Southern Roots! It will be a fierce competitor to the Infamous Sugar Scrub. But have no fear. If you choose to indulge in this exfoliating treasure, rest assure you will not be disloyal to your favorite Sugar Scrub. They are completely different in components, but so similiar in that they leave you a new person!
Included in this recipe is a list of goodies. Dead sea salts & grits to exfoliate, honey to soothe, milk to soften your skin & of course a healthy dose of whipped shea butter and luxurious oils. Seriously, your mouth and pores will be drooling! More info to come when this bad boy or "Southern Charmer" I should say will hit the shelves.
Till then...

Getting Ready for 2011!

As the snow melts (please Dear God let the snow melt) we continue to find inspiration for 2011! We continue to blend, pour and label our staples that everyone loves and adores and then go a step further and create some new goodies.

With a shaky economy and harsh winter, we realize that it is very crucial to stick to wonderful products, but affordable products. We are gearing up to offer lots of new things via travel size.

If you have any words of wisdom for this lil ole soap gal, we would love to hear them. We have been very fortunate to have our company grow with the support of our Soap Fans! Keep the comments coming, the suggestions and more than anything please go and get dirty!

Till next time...

Get Us Out of This Snow!

Yike-a-rama! Snow, snow, snow. If only we had our sodium hydroxide up here to make a special "Fresh Snow" Soap then we would feel useful! We have over a foot of snow and not looking so good for the ole soap production. The shop feels a million miles away at the moment. But, we are getting very creative over here. We continue to plan & create from our "ice cave"! If you check out the website you will find that we have put a special up. Its the Get Us Out of the Snow Sale. We are offering our Summer Scents on special. Yep, we are going there. We need some kind of hope. Coconut Lemongrass seems to be it! But once we regain our composure, the sale will be over. So cash in now while we are still going stir crazy.

As always, we would love to hear your feedback. What is your favorite scent? Favorite product? And if I should be so bold as to ask "What can we improve on for 2011"? (I am actually really nervous about the last question...serious people pleaser here people! )

Okay...Enjoy your warm cozy homes, the snow & the what the future holds. Only 9 more weeks till Spring. That's what we are looking forward to!

Till next time...
