Small Business Saturday is this Saturday and we encourage you to seek out your favorite small local business and shop for your needs or that special gift for holiday giving. We small businesses are hard working people that generally take our hard earned dollars and support the local economy. I personally think that rings more true today than it ever has. Instead of going to big box stores we have been trying to purchase from as many small local businesses as we can, especially since we are a small business ourselves and we know that this year has been a real challenge. So our gift to you this Saturday is free shipping on any order $24.00 and up! Normally we have a free shipping offer of $50.00 and over, but for one day only we are going to lower it to $24.00. This is just in time for crossing off that soap loving friend or family member on your list. These bars make the perfect stocking stuffer for that hard to buy for person in your life. So check it out, November 28th all day!
Also, we now have those new batches of Peppermint & Vanilla and Goat's Milk & Oatmeal. And some beautiful crocheted and knitted soap pouches and wash cloths made by a very dear friend of mine, Peggy. These are just the nicest things ever. I have been using the wash cloths instead of terry wash cloths for about 3 years now. They are so much nicer. These are very soft and wash beautifully. They pair well as a gift with our handcrafted soap. We also have several other holiday scented bars available like Orange & Clove, Pumpkin Spice, Three Kings and our updated version of Cheers To Your Skin (with a certain Blonde beer added!). And coming December 5th will be our Festive Eggnog and Lavender Frost, so watch out for those announcements. And remember SHOP SMALL!
Yes Small Business Saturday is fast approaching! This Saturday November 28th is 2020's Shop Small/Small Business Saturday and we are going to make it easy for you to share our beautifully handcrafted artisan soap bars! Any purchase of $24.00 or more qualifies for free shipping from 12:01 a.m. November 28th until 12:01 a.m. November 29, 2020. No coupon code needed. Just spend $24.00 and your order ships free! But this special offer is only good for 24 hours, so mark your calendars!
We are just about ready to enter into the 2020 holiday season! We can finally feel the difference in weather, the heat has now subsided. Yeah! In just a couple of weeks we will be done planning our Thanksgiving dinner and turning our attention to celebrate our Christmas season. We too here at Desert Blossom Soap have been busy making our special blends that appeal to our senses and help create those special memories through scent and sight. Pictured here are just a few of some of the beautiful soap creations we make especially for you! Along with our minty Fresh & Clean, sweet Pumpkin Spice, earthy Three Kings, citrusy & spicy Orange & Clove, subtle Cheers To Your Skin or the cooling scent of our Eucalyptus & Spearmint we will offer the Peppermint & Vanilla, Balsam, Festive Eggnog and Lavender Frost. Some of these will have a new look, some will have new ingredients. One special change is to our Fresh & Clean. We have added Pascalite clay. This mineral rich form of bentonite clay is a perfect pairing for our number one selling bar. It will definitely be a bonus and make this bar even better! This year we also changed the Pumpkin Spice. We added pumpkin puree to the base, along with the beautiful color it also added a little bit of an exfoliant. In our Cheers To Your Skin we took out any milk products, pumped it full of strong coffee and local beer. Then ramped up the scent with vanilla, balsam peru & bay essential oils and added a bay rum fragrance oil. We are really happy with how it turned out. Lastly, our Eucalyptus & Spearmint stayed the same except for the color. We added pure indigo for the blue, but unexpectedly ended up with a tan instead. We think it gave it a vintage look, what do you think? Well hopefully all of you have a wonderful, peaceful and blessed Thanksgiving. May your holidays be filled with beautiful memories of family and friends. But most of all, be happy!
