I made this batch for my future sister-in-law. Her wedding is this weekend, and she asked for some soaps to include in gift baskets for her bridesmaids. So I used her wedding colors and theme as inspiration - yellow, electric blue, and the 80s! "It's so exhausting being fabulous" is what she wanted the labels to say. It's scented with a layer each of Blue Sugar, Plumeria, and Creamy Coconut.

Featured in The Storque

Storque Article - Etsy Finds: Stickin' It

My natural stain sticks (with Rosemary, Lemon Eucalyptus and Orange essential oils) were recently featured in The Storque. I sold out within a couple of hours! But never fear, more stain sticks are being made right now.

The Island

My newest special edition soap - The Island. I'm listing it at 20% off today in honor of the LOST season finale tonight!

Life on the Island is rough - hunting boar in the jungle, being kidnapped by The Others, being chased by the Smoke Monster (what IS that thing?!), constantly flashing back to your former life, trying to decide being Jack and Sawyer... What's a Lostie to do? I'm sure they would have loved to have this soap handy. Green for the lush jungle, black swirls for the mysterious smoke, and an all natural essential oil scent blend with notes of tropical lemongrass, sweet lime, and fresh mint.

Christmas is Coming...

The Christmas season is here, and man, does it show! Orders for Christmas gifts are flying in as quickly as I can fill them. Here are a few of the special items I have available this holiday season.

Frankincense & Myrrh soap. This warm, incense-like fragrance is unisex and the perfect Christmas gift. The white layer contains ground vanilla beans for a bit of texture and a touch of sweetness.

Winter Solstice soap - Inspired by gray wintry days and white snow swirling against the sky. A refreshing blend of cedarwood, clove, patchouli and pine.

Pumpkin Pie soap smells just like a pumpkin pie fresh from the oven. Contains organic pumpkin puree and holiday spices like cinnamon, nutmeg and clove.

A Winter Therapy gift basket will keep the blues away all winter long. Includes 1 Relax soap (a mellow minty scent), 1 Relax solid lotion stick (with mango butter, shea butter and olive oil to soothe dry, chapped skin), 1 Soothe solid lotion stick (with menthol, eucalyptus and rosemary to relieve aching muscles and open airways), 1 Peaceful Sleep pillow mist, 2 Sea Salt soy candles, 1 Herbal Balm (with herb infused olive oil to relieve seriously dry skin, chapped lips and noses, and cuts and scrapes), and 1 100% cotton washcloth.

See all of these and more in my Etsy shop.
