New Artisan Small Batch Soaps

Here is a preview of one of the new products I will be debuting at the Eagle Holiday Market on November 19th.

I call this one is “Holy Cross”. It was inspired by the local landmark as well as the Season. Featuring real Frankincense, Myrrh Gum, and GOLDen Honey, with added natural scents of orange, cinnamon, and clove.

I intend for this to be one of my “Signature Soaps”, meaning that it will available year-round and sold in wholesale lots to as many local stores as I can get to carry it. I am not sure yet about the final weight of the bars, since they are still curing, so this label is subject to change, but here is the prototype I designed. I turned one of my photos into digital art for each of my Signature soaps, and I think they turned out quite well. I will unveil “Gore Range” and “Piney Lake” another day.holy-cross-1

Look for more sneak peeks at my Holiday lineup, coming soon!

Body and Massage Oil

Body and Massage Oil

I rub a little of this into my still-wet skin after every shower for all-over moisturizing that can’t be beat. A mild but pleasant aroma from skin-friendly essential oils is sure to please either sex. Makes a great massage oil and all-over moisturizer. Contains oils that are thought to be helpful to treat scars, cellulite and stretch marks. (My husband actually prefers this product over all others for moisturizing his face.)

Hair Dew feedback

Sold some Hair Dew to a hair stylist friend of mine this week (I didn’t specifically ask her permission to share her name, so I won’t, just yet). Her hair looked okay when I saw her afterward, yesterday, but not as nice as I had expected, so I grilled her and sure enough, she had washed twice because the first wash “didn’t leave her hair feeling clean”. I laughed and told her that I would bet money that it had been clean, but not stripped, and she just wasn’t used to that feeling, but to please trust me and do it just once next time, and then to indulge me even more and let it air dry afterwards.
She called me a little while ago from a friend’s house, who is another local hair stylist. “You should see my hair TODAY!” she starts out, and then says that HE wants some now, how much is it, and can she come pick up a set right now? grin emoticon grin emoticon grin emoticon
Turns out she has beautiful curls … who knew? lol. I just saw them and felt them. More importantly, it seems like she is happy with her curls so maybe she won’t have to be dragging out the hot iron every day any more. Because she has been a hair dresser for almost 40 years, of COURSE she colors her hair, so she will test for us whether it fades her color or not over time, and who better to report on that, right…? grin again. I will of course report back honestly as to how that all goes.

I am grinning like the Cheshire cat here. And I am going into the lab momentarily to make a big batch of the new natually scented line of Hair Dew. I can’t decide what to call it, though, and could use some help. It is soft, and floral, and I might just go with “Soft”… but that seems sort of lazy, or at the least unimaginative. I have a “Just Fresh” scent already that is popular in hair and soap, and am about to release a “Just Clean” scent in Sugar Scrub. What do you think of “Soft”? Soft Summer Breeze was one of my first thoughts, but that seems too wordy… plus I would like to offer it year round. Suggestions welcomed. Hair Dew Just Fresh 😆
