Product Spotlight – Fresh Bamboo

Happy Tuesday all! Today I’d like to introduce everyone to our Fresh Bamboo line of products.

Fresh Bamboo is a crisp and clean unisex fragrance. The bright and fresh scent of natural bamboo blends with notes of aloe, musk, and jasmine to produce an easy to wear fragrance that is not over powering.

Currently we offer our Fresh Bamboo as a Soap:

Back To School Contest Soon!

We are having a giveaway in a few days! I am still working out the details but there will be a giveaway coming up! It will be via Facebook so be sure to like our page!

The contest will be to honor the lovely time of year we parents all long for and dread at the same time… back to school season!

Back to school for us was today with Pretty One starting her sophomore year. Her first Volleyball practice with her new team is this afternoon. There is NO waiting when it comes to Volleyball season. Tryouts were last week and her first game is the 29th.

Back to school is a great time to stock up on bath and body products. They make excellent teachers gifts, holiday gifts, party favors, etc. Not to mention you want to keep the kiddos from being all germy and stinky. You do not know the meaning of stink till you get a whiff of an athlete’s bag. Toss an open bar of soap in their bag to help! We have a ton of stock ready and waiting to go out and wash stinky kids everywhere!

Back to school for college kids also is a good time to get them the soaps and body products they will need for the coming semester!

That’s it for today. Check back tomorrow for a product spotlight!

Vacation Rocks!

It’s one of the best parts of owning your own business. If I need to take a day off I can. Yesterday I did. I apologize for the lack of a post I just did not have time to get one written or access to my computer.

My sister and her boyfriend and their INSANE dog are here for the week. The first few days were very busy out having fun and then very crazy at home as their pup got used to the happy pups. The four dogs have finally found peace and it has been so fun watching them play.

There are quite a bit of soaps already made and curing. Arabian Nights is just out of this world. There is a Ginger Lime loofah soap that has a very sweet lime fragrance to it. There is another loofah soap as well that has no name yet but is my own fragrance blend. It’s a floral citrus blend with a warm touch.

Today I’ll be making coffee scrubs and bottling the Argan oil. As soon as we can get a good amount of sun I will get photos done. It has been rather cloudy the last few days. We’ll also be making a few other soaps today as well. We’ve tested a rosemary lavender soap which I think may be a keeper so I may make more of that. Our Turkish Coffee smells very chocolaty so I think I am going to call it Turkish Cocoa and make it a chocolaty brown with a gold swirl. Lots of ideas for soaps! I can’t wait to get started for the day. Photos of all the mew products will be forthcoming as soon as I can get enough sunlight to get pictures taken.

Since I can’t get photos of the new soaps with the current lighting I will leave you with this photo of my sister’s boyfriend Joey from the Bristol Renaissance Fair:

It’s okay to laugh. It was an amazing moment in photo taking history. Have a great day!
