New Products in the Works

 I have formulated a great body frosting recipe and will be posting it on my Etsy shop in the coming weeks. Because I make such small batches I will only be able to do a couple of scents. Lilac has been popular at my craft shows with this product. So, I will probably be making it in that scent for the spring. Lemon sugar has been my " go to " scent with most of the new products because it sells out in every product at the shows. Most likely that will be the second scent I will do and then we'll see what's next.

SUGAR SCRUBS, SUGAR SCRUBS!! Well, I've been doing salt scrubs for a while now, but haven't posted them online in my Etsy shop or my main website. The feedback I have been getting is that everyone would prefer sugar scrubs because they are more gentle on the skin. So, I am currently formulating a sugar scrub recipe...I think I'm on the right track with it. I will keep you posted with the progress. Hopefully I can have some to post on Etsy by the end of the promises.

Finally, I will have the return of a specially formulated lotion that I called "Island Cloud". The scent blend I used for it wasn't for everyone, I liked it, but it was an unusual blend of essential oils. What I am going to do with it is change the scent to oakmoss and sandalwood. Very light and soothing scent for this lotion. The blend of oils and butters that I have used will remain the same. Coming soon to a website near you :o)

That's all for now...thanks for stopping in!

With Vernal Visors On


The beginning of spring is a curious thing, 
not long ago there were piles of snow,
now in a flash comes a carpet of grass,
sprouts and buds and all kinds of green,
like Winter to Summer and no in between.
there is much to be done, no time for fun,
soap to be made and gardens to spade,
yards to rake and lotions to make,
In like a lion and out like a lamb,
time to wake up and get with the program!

With the onset of spring comes a flood of new ideas and things to do. I have many new soap scents in mind for this year. I would also like to expand my current lotion line with new scents as well. Keep a lookout for a poll to select the newest soap and lotion scents...this makes my decision making so much easier. I can never decide for sure what new soap scents to make. The usual m.o. is to make something new and see how it goes at my next event or farmers' market. I think it's time for something a little more efficient. So, I will be launching a viewer's poll so that everyone can vote on what they think would be good. I have some seasonal scents in mind for summer that I haven't done yet. Can't wait to see what everyone wants!
