We have added another goats milk blend to our list. Our Arizona Citrus was previously a non milk soap, but we have decided to experiment because this blend has orange, tangerine, pink grapefruit, lemon and lime citrus essential oils. Citrus essential oils tend not to hold up during the sopanification process because of heat. With milk soap you sopanify at a very low temperature which helps the scent from fading. Another difference that we added is a copper swirl of mica on top, repesentative of one of Arizona's great resources. This is cosmetic grade mica of course, so it has been okay'd for use on your face. These will be available June 10th for purchase.
We are so excited to announce our acceptance into the Pinewood Farmer's Market! This summer we will be up north in Munds Park for their farmer's market every Saturday starting May 26th Memorial Day through Labor Day September 1st with the exception of June 2nd. We are also excited about offering these two new products at the market. First are these wonderful handmade soap dishes. These are made by Steve of Squirrel Print. We first met Steve at the Creative Market at the Avocado Nursery. These are beautiful and rustic and they are a perfect fit for our soap! This one is pictured with our Eucalyptus & Spearmint. We will have these available at the Pinewood Market or you can contact Steve directly on Instagram @ stevie_uh. The next product is the cow's milk soap we are showcasing. These little darling cows are perfect for the little ones, no scent and only coconut activated charcoal to color the black spots. This will be our only cow's milk soap available. We will have a contest to name our little cow when they have finished curing, so watch out for our announcement in the next few weeks. And, we will have these at the Pinewood Market also. So come up this summer and cool off, we would love to meet you!
Just wanted to give these darling soon to be husband and wife a big "thank you" for allowing us to design and create these custom wedding favor soaps for their very special day. Ashley and Moe (Lee) you both are wonderful and we are so excited for you! Just remember when the day finally arrives you will put all your worries and anxieties behind you. And, that's when the fun begins! Congratulations to you both!
We now have two more blends available made with goats milk instead of cows milk. The Just For Me and the Lavender and Spearmint. The Just For Me (formerly Peppermint and Tea Tree Oil) is available now and the Lavender and Spearmint will be available for purchase May 6th, just in time for Mother's Day! And don't forget about our free shipping for the month of April, it is about to end so take advantage of it while you can!
We will be at the Avocado Nursery this Saturday so if you want something to do, come and check out this awesome little market for our area. This will be the last one for the season, but it will restart again in October 2018. This craft fair is building and there are lots of unique vendors plus you can check out all that the Avocado Nursery has to offer for your landscaping and planting needs, they are truly wonderful people! We will have a booth set up there and have our $3.00 a bar special closeout on some of our bars, so come out and stock up! It is supposed to be a gorgeous weekend!
As promised we are going to showcase our new changes to our milk base soaps. We are now using goats milk in some of our bars that previously we were using cows milk in. We have been fortuunate to have a source close to our manufacturing location here in Coolidge, Arizona. The farm is Bright Eyes Goat Farm of Florence, Arizona. The wonderful owner is Leanne Pacek-Turley and she has supplied us with some of the most awsome, creamy goats milk! So far we have made eight batches using goats milk. The batches we have made so far are Goats Milk & Oatmeal (new, lightly scented with benzion essential oil), Old Fashioned Oatmeal, Blueberry & Lemon, Sweet Lavender, Country Rose Garden (formerly Rose & Geranium), Eucalyptus & Spearmint, Just For Me (our peppermint & tea tree oil blend) and Lavender & Spearmint. We will have a few of these available at the Creative Market at the Avocado Nursery on Saturday the 14th, so come by and check them out if you are in the area!
Because we are making these changes to our bars we will be closing out the previous bars that contain the cows milk in them. We will be offering these at a discounted price of $3.00 a bar. You can email us if you would like to purchase any of these or they will be availabe at the Creative Market Saturday. Supplies are limited though. Here is a list of blends and how many of each are available for the discounted price: Milk & Honey 11 bars, Oh So Calendula 7 bars, Eucalyptus & Spearmint 7 bars, Sweet Lavender 4 bars, Just For Me 10 bars, Lavender & Spearmint 7 bars, Germs Away 5 bars and Rose & Geranium 6 bars.
We will be keeping one bar that will contain cows milk and that will be a surprise! We will unvail this soap in our blog here in a couple of weeks, check it out to see our change to this bar, you are going to love it! Hope to see you all this weekend at the Creative Market, come out and buy something local from all of the wonderful vendors that will be there!

April is officially here and we are already one quarter of the way through this year, wow! We have been busy restocking our products and making a few changes. We have a new offer to announce and we have been accepted to a farmers market which we are extremely excited about! Our days are getting longer and yes we are warming up here in the land of the sun, don't you just love it! Lots of events happening here in our beautiful state of Arizona. I love this time of the year, everything is growing and blooming. Now lets talk about what we have been up to.
One of our changes is our packaging. We have chosen to use glassine bags, which are biodegradeable so still an earth friendly choice. These bags are transparent so you can see the soap and we can bag your choice of bar when purchased at a market, you choose your bar we bag it for you. We will add our label and you are all set.
Another change is that we are making our milk base soap with goats milk instead of cows milk. We now have available to us a local supplier of goats milk. In the next few weeks as we announce the bars that we will be using it in we will introduce this little goat farm in Florence Arizona. The owner Leanne has been so gracious as to make this available so we may offer this to you! Other changes are shape and size, the elimination of some of our bars and some changes to some of our favorites. We will showcase these in the next few weeks, so watch for these posts!
Our new offer is free shipping for the month of April! No minimum order is required, just type in the code FREE/APRIL at check out and then push apply and we will ship your order for free. Also available is our buy 5 get 1 free offer, too! So stock up and save!
Come join us tomorrow for the Avocado Nursery/Distinctive Earthscapes's Creative Farmers Market! It will be from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m. What a beautiful day to walk through this wonderful nursery and browse all the handcrafted items and maybe pick up something you have been looking for. We are going to have a table set up with all our handmade soaps, our new soap nets and a few Valentines Day gift bags. So come on out and buy something local!
We have completed our soap net drawing and the three winners names have been drawn. We would like to thank each and every one of you that left your name and a comment. All of you had such wonderful things to say, they were a joy to read. Congratulations to our three winners, we hope you enjoy your soap nets as much as we do. Let us know what you think of them after you use them, we would love to hear about your experience! Over the weekend we will add them to our Accessories category so they will be available for purchase. Again, thank you all so much for your participation!
What a fantastic year 2017 was, but we are so excited to start 2018! We have been busy replenishing our depleteted inventory and we have a great new product that we will be carrying that we're excited to tell you about. Also, we have a new shipping offer to reveal. So, lets get going!
Let's start with the new product we will be carrying, they are soap saver nets that you put your soap bars in. They are made right here in the USA. They are recyclable which is a plus and they extend the life of your soap by letting it hang and dry out in between use. On top of this you will just love the lather it creates, they are simply amazing! We will be giving away three of these on our live Facebook video today so keep your eyes open. All you will have to do is leave your name and a comment on this post to be entered. We will draw three names and announce them on Friday January 26, 2018!
We also are offering free shipping on any order of $60.00 or more. Just enter the code FREESHIP in the coupon code box and it will reflect the discount in your final total at checkout. This offer runs through May 31, 2018 and we might keep it permanently if we receive positive feedback on it.
You will notice that we will start to announce our new batches of soap with the date they will be ready and in the next few weeks we are going to update the offering of the seasonal gift baskets for Valentines Day! So, keep a lookout for these special announcements for your special someone.
