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.

We are so happy to introduce our new Lavender Frost goat's milk bar! This bar contains the same oil base as our other goat's milk bars, olive, coconut and castor. We decided that we wanted a simple, beautiful bar that the whole family could use. The essential oil base consists of just two of my favorite oils, Eucalyptus Blue Mallee and Lavender Albanian. We did not add any color other than the cosmetic safe mica that is lightly dusted on the top of this bar. This bar was requested by a customer and I think it may be a keeper! Thank you so much Lynn :) After the bar began to cure the smell filled my soap room, what was the first thing that came to mind? That song that my dear grandchildren keep singing, "Let it go, Let it go!" So when choosing a name, lo and behold Lavender Frost (not Frozen, wanted to be a little different :) ) popped in my head. Now as I am boxing and sealing these beauties the song is going round and round. Kind of like that silly shark song, lol!
We will be at the Farmers Market North Scottsdale tomorrow Saturday November 9th from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m. with this lovely bar and so many more. So stop by and check them out! You won't want to miss out on all the great vendors at this market, produce, bread & pastries, honey, tea, crafts and unique clothing. The day should be beautiful!
OMG! I just saw a Facebook post that said "Only two months until Christmas"! How does this holiday season suddenly pop up on us so quickly? Are you ready? It will be over before you can blink twice! So, let us give you some stress-free holiday helpers to make your holiday gift giving just a little bit easier :)

Clockwise from top: Festive Eggnog, Peppermint & Vanilla, Hunter/Fisherman's Soap, Frosted Evergreen and Three Kings.
This Saturday marks our third market for the Farmers Market North Scottsdale, and we are excited to change things up a little! We are going to have available our essential oil blends for all those out there that like a soap with a more natural scent. Below is a sampling of the bars that will be available at our booth. Starting in the left top going clockwise: Aloe & Alfalfa, Pink Grapefruit, Orange & Clove, Three Kings, Fresh & Clean, Just For Me (peppermint & tea tree oil ), and Frosted Evergreen. Pictured center is our Milk & Honey which is an unscented bar. Also available will be Lavender & Spearmint, Spearmint, Lemon & Thyme, Cheers to Your Skin ( beer soap ), Goat's Milk & Oatmeal, Arizona Blend, Sweet Lavender and Lavender & Lemongrass. Each of these bars is an essential oil blend or is unscented, no fragrance oils are added. They make special gifts for that hard to buy for individual or the person that just wants something closer to a natural scent for their shower experience.
The market will also be having the first of their cornhole competitions! This should be a fun way to spend your Saturday. You can browse the vendors, get a bite to eat and cheer on your favorite team! So come out and join us, we would love to see you!
October 12th is our next Farmers Market North Scottsdale, and they have a special treat lined up for Saturday's market. If you are a dog lover come on down and join in the fun! Lovefordogs will be at the market for a dog adoption event on Saturday, so if you are interested in adopting a lifelong companion this is the place to be.
We will have two different blends to add to our lineup this Saturday, Aloe and Alfalfa and our newly formulated Jasmine and Coconut Milk bars. The Aloe and Alfalfa is one of three blends we created as part of our Arizona Inspired bars. Along with our Arizona Blend and Arizona Citrus this bar represents some of our locally available ingredients that our beautiful state has to offer. We scent this bar with clary sage and patchouli for an earthy fragrance and add aloe, organic alfalfa and jojoba oil for a truly special bar of soap.
We finally reformulated our Green Tea and Jasmine bar into the new Jasmine and Coconut Milk bar. We removed the green tea, added sea clay and the essential oils of bergamot, ylang-ylang and jasmine. We put a touch of coconut and jasmine fragrance in the mix and added it all to a coconut milk blend. Very exotic and floral. It has a wonderfully creamy lather.
So we hope you can come and join us! The location address is 8711 E Pinnacle Peak Road, Scottsdale. The market starts at 9 a.m. and ends at 1:00 p.m. Come check it out.
