Wax melts January 30, 2019 15:56

It's funny how, when you decide to remove an item from your inventory, you hear from customers... asking about what you've got in stock.  Asking about when you're going to bring out the spring scents.  Meanwhile, the little voice in the back of your head is going "Um...I just....wait a minute...let me rethink..."

SO.  Because you have asked, I will answer.  Spring/summer scents will come.  BUT... I am making a decision that reflects my desire to keep my ingredient list - and overhead - to a minimum.  From this season, all wax melts will free of colorants. The clamshells are clearly labeled, so I'm not worried about confusion in that regard. 

What kinds of scents are you looking for for Spring/Summer?  What should I stock ALL the time?

Lotion-free life January 5, 2019 10:39

Okay, I have to confess, that isn't me.  This girl lives in Minnesota, and the lotion is slathered on my hands after I do the dishes.   

But my body?  This year that's a different story.  I've changed nothing except using my own soap in the shower.  I'll talk a little bit about the ingredients I use in later blog posts, but the benefits of handmade soap for your skin cannot be ignored.  

My mom is a convert - and y'all, if you knew my mom, you'd understand why this is such a big deal.  She's practical and no-nonsense.  She doesn't buy into a whole lot of self-care.  And now, she's giving her friends my soap as gifts.  She hasn't quite convinced my dad to make the switch - we may just have to stealth swap it out.  Because he won't use lotion - and his skin is aging, dry, and does the whole nasty crack thing.  And in the winter, that's just painful.
