Yes, this Saturday will be the end of February 2020! We will be heading into March which pushes us into Spring! I just love Spring in Arizona! Soon we will be seeing all the beautiful flowers spread across this magnificent state! Already the local grasses are popping up everywhere. My horses, M & M and Bold Gypsy, are loving what little green they have temporarily. But it will vanish just as fast as it appeared.
As for our market this weekend, I am posting what will be available. We have new batches of Fresh & Clean, Just For Me (peppermint mixed with niaouli (melaleuca quinuenervia) which is in the tea tree family, our new blend for this bar) and our new round bar of Goat's Milk & Oatmeal. Also available will be Honeysuckle & Calendula, Lavender & Rose, Country Rose Garden, Lavender & Spearmint, Sweet Lavender, Coconut Milk & Jasmine and Old Fashioned Oatmeal. We will have a limited number of $3.00 bars of Goat's Milk & Oatmeal and Old Fashioned Oatmeal. We are testing to see if these bars will be popular. We also will have a few of the bars that we have only a few of with a few free samples, these free samples are the perfect size to bring with you when traveling far or near. They are a must have with all this talk about the coronavirus. Just come up to our booth and ask, you can have as many as you want, while supplies last of course! And we still have a limited number of sugar scrubs, bath salts and some bath bombs.
It should be a beautiful Saturday so come out and enjoy the day!
Now that our February is nearing its end, we finally have our new batches of Fresh & Clean, Just For Me and our Goat's Milk & Oatmeal (that now has a new look). We took advise from some of our customers and made our Goat's Milk & Oatmeal into a round bar. It still has all the same ingredients but in an easy to hold round bar. We also listened to many of our customers and created our first small 3 oz. bars now available in the Goat's Milk & Oatmeal and the Old Fashioned Oatmeal. They will be priced at $3.00 each. This is a test market for us, we will see if these smaller bars are well received and then decide if we will keep them. We now have the Fresh & Clean and Just For Me available, but the supply is limited and they are already going fast!
On a different note we recently purchased some promotional media brochures from our favorite lady, Lori Cordova at the UPS Store at 18291 N Pima Road in Scottsdale. Just look at these beautiful brochures Lori and the wonderful staff at this store produced for us! Thank you so much, we couldn't be happier. We also had our market banners made through this store. They were fast and just a joy to work with. Very professional. If you are looking to have marketing materials done, look no further. Lori and her staff can be reached at 480-758-4485 and tell them Desert Blossom Soap sent you!
Here we are already into February 2020! Boy, January passed us by and we didn't even know it!

Yes, here come all those romantic florals! We finally have our Country Rose Garden back in our inventory. We will have them tomorrow at the Farmers Market North Scottsdale and Sunday they will be listed on our website for purchase. Along with this beautifully scented bar we also added Sweet Lavender and Lavender & Spearmint.
Another bar that has made it back into our inventory is the long awaited Coconut & Lemongrass with silk. We changed this one up a little by making it a coconut milk bar instead of a goat's milk bar. This lovely bar has a silky lather with creamy bubbles. The scent is created by a blend of lemongrass and litsea cubeba essential oils and a coconut cream fragrance oil. This will be one of three coconut milk bars that we will have available.
In the next couple of weeks we will add more of our floral blends such as Lavender & Rose and our customer favorite Honeysuckle & Calendula as well as some non floral bars such as Three Kings, Goat's Milk & Honey and we are finally restocking our Goat's Milk & Oatmeal after finding another source for Benzion essential oil. So, stay tuned for our future posts!

Our New Year is fast approaching and we are preparing for our new spring batches. Yes we must think early because our soap must cure for four to six weeks. And, as you know Valentine's Day will be here before you know it! Below are some of our special blends that are customer favorites and these will be available in January.
We hope that this year has been a great year for everyone and in 2020 it will be even better! So, have a relaxing New Year's Day and bring on 2020!!!!
This Saturday will be the last opportunity to pick up those last minute purchases before Christmas! We will have the last of our stock available and it is disappearing fast! We will have 8 bars of this different version of Peppermint & Vanilla. It has a more rustic look and shape. It is still a milk blend only with raw cows milk. We didn't add any red coloring throughout, instead we added a pencil line of rose mica. To go along with this bar we are offering a sugar scrub also scented with peppermint essential oil and pure vanilla. If you need a quick gift we will have a special that includes a bar of soap, scrub and soap pouch wash cloth all for just $15.00. We put these in a kraft bag with tissue for easy giving. So come on down to the Farmers Market North Scottsdale Saturday December 21st from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m.
Tomorrow we will be at the Farmers Market North Scottsdale from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m. And, we are so excited to offer our newly designed Eucalyptus & Spearmint! We added a pencil line of coconut activated charcoal to the middle that separates the top that is colored with indigo and the bottom that is colored with french green clay. Indigo is a naturally derived dye that had been used to color your favorite blue jeans. It has a beautiful natural blue color that pairs well in this nicely scented bar. We still add the essential oils of eucalyptus, spearmint, camphor and cypress to this goat's milk blend. And as with all our goat's milk bars it is has an oil blend of olive, coconut and castor oil.
Pictured along with this bar is a few of the other products we will be offering. We will have our holiday bath bombs (Peppermint & Vanilla, Lavender Frost and Black Spruce & Vanilla), Bath Salts, Foot Scrubs, Sugar Scrubs and a few of these Mesquite Soap Decks. Also available will be our Soap Nets, Soap Pouches, Soap Dishes, three of our last Gift Boxes and an assortment of our soap bars, of course.

We finally have our Peppermint & Vanilla and our Festive Eggnog ready for purchase! This weekend at the Farmers Market North Scottsdale they will be available along with our other seasonal blends. These beautiful bars are seasonally scented and perfect for giving. The Peppermint & Vanilla has that perfect pairing of peppermint essential oil and creamy vanilla fragrance oil reminding you of the scent of candy canes. These bars are also colored in the red and white tradition of this well loved Christmas candy. Our Festive Eggnog has that nutty, creamy scent of nutmeg and vanilla and topped with a swirl and dusting of gold mica. Both of these bars are in our goat's milk base that includes fresh goat's milk, and an oil base consisting of 70% olive oil with coconut oil added for hardness of the bar and castor for plenty of beautiful bubbles. All of our goat's milk bars are favorites, but these are extra special! We will also have a few gift boxes with these bars in them and the addition of some essential oil foot scrub and bath salts at the market on Saturday. So come out and join us, the address is 8711 E Pinnacle Peak Rd. Scottsdale from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m.
