Our debut at the Farmers Market North Scottsdale is fast approaching! And we are so excited! The weather is supposed to be just beautiful and this makes for a great day to get out and experience the kick-off of the season opener for this market. Two wonderful charities will be at the market, Vets4ChildRescue.org and The Rancho Milagro Foundation (Ranchomilagroaz.com). Check them out and come visit them at the market, they are doing some amazing things! They are also going to have a chef demonstration by Chef William Turner from 9 a.m. until noon. Remember this market will start October 5th, 2019! So mark your calendars.
We are busy getting ready, boxing and labeling all our batches as they finish curing. We have four more bars we want to showcase that we will have available at the opening. First, the Goat's Milk & Oatmeal. This is a customer favorite, it has a very light vanilla scent created by the benzion essential oil along with finely ground organic gluten-free oatmeal. The oatmeal acts as a gentle exfoliant that helps lift dead skin and dirt away as the soap cleans your skin. This bar is gentle and creamy.
The next bar is the Old Fashioned Oatmeal. This bar is similar to the Goat's Milk & Oatmeal with the exception of the scent we add. It has cinnamon, nutmeg and clove essential oils with a bit of creamy vanilla fragrance oil. This scent is warm and uplifting and perfect for fall and winter.
Then we have a new batch of Aloe and Alfalfa. This bar is part of our Arizona inspired soaps that have ingredients that remind us of this great state. Aloe seems to be a staple in Arizona landscapes, you can find it almost everywhere. And what a great plant it is, the healing properties are wonderful. Alfalfa is a staple of Arizona farming. We happen to live in the middle of it and I can tell you when they are blooming the scent is lovely! We combine these two things in our bar along with the essential oils of clary sage and patchouli. This bar has a very earthy scent.
Last, is our Spearmint, Lemon & Thyme. I just love this blend in the kitchen. The essential oil blend in this bar is perfect for cleaning and removing odors from your skin. This soap has a very bubbly lather and is a long lasting bar.
Check out the list of vendors below that are going to be available, there should be something for everyone!
Shown below our Goat's Milk & Oatmeal, Old Fashioned Oatmeal, Aloe & Alfalfa and Spearmint, Lemon & Thyme.
We know that there are so many pumpkin pie fans out there just by all the products scented with this sweet and spicy fragrance! You name it, they have it! One of the most popular things available is the pumpkin spice latte. Coffee, cream and the spicy goodness of a pumpkin pie all wrapped up in an awesome drink! Pumpkin pie lovers just can't wait until this drink becomes available. So, here we are adding our own version to a soap bar! This has all the nuances of pumpkin pie with the exception of pumpkin. We added a sweet pumpkin pie fragrance oil, vanilla cream fragrance oil and the essential oils of cinnamon and nutmeg. The base oil blend is coconut, palm, olive, sunflower and castor. We naturally colored our bar with cocoa powder, ground clove, turmeric and paprika. The smell is a creamy, spicy, yummy scent. The lather is creamy also with lots of wonderful bubbles. This bar would make a beautiful gift or set it out in your bath or kitchen during a special occasion. These will be one of our limited edition bars so we will only have so many available. They will be at the North Scottsdale Farmers Market on October 5th along with the New Orange & Clove, Old Fashioned Oatmeal and our Goat's Milk & Oatmeal. So come out and enjoy the day and browse the wonderful market vendors.
Yes! We have our new batch of Orange and Clove curing and getting ready for fall! We have been using this wonderful bar for a week and we love the changes we made. We added palm and sunflower oils to the mix and ground cloves and cardamon. These two ingredients add color and a mild exfoliant to the bar. Love the orange and clove essential oil scents, sweet and spicy! Other faves for fall are our new Pumpkin Spice bar, Old Fashioned Oatmeal and the popular Goat's Milk and Oatmeal. These will all be available at our new market location, the Farmers Market North Scottsdale. So come on out, they have some wonderful things planned for the upcoming season.
Also shown below are our Fused art glass soap dishes. We now updated our website to include these beautiful soap dishes. There are three styles to choose from and they also will be available at the market. We will also be restocking our inventory of ceramic soap dishes as well, so be on the lookout for that post in the coming weeks.
Lets hope that our fall arrives soon! The weather could be a little cooler, but I know it is just around the corner. Have a great week and hope to see you all soon :)
