Our first local farmer's market for the fall season! We will be at the Avocado Nursery's Creative Market tomorrow from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m. Come out and support our local small businesses and artisans at this growing market. We will have our new fall and holiday scents available along with the favorites too! If you mention that you saw this blog on our "Soap Talk" we will give you a free gift! Please only one free gift per person. The nursery is located at 6855 N Overfield Road on the outskirts of Casa Grande. So come on out and walk the beautiful grounds and check out the vendors! We would love to see you all.
We now have added our Lavender and Lemongrass bar to our product line on the webstore for online purchase. So, if you love these two great essential oils you are going to love these bars! We will also have them available this weekend at the Pinewood Farmers Market in Munds Park. Yes! We will be up north again, love this market!
We have a new batch of our Milk and Honey that will be ready on July 20th! Of course it now is made with goat's milk and local Arizona honey. A perfect blend for all the family. This soap has such skin loving oils as olive, sunflower and sweet almond, and on top of that we add shea butter. Such a nice unscented bar now with the added benefit of goat's milk!
We are also adding to our line Lavender & Lemongrass. These two essential oils are such a classic blend. We were asked to make these bars as a special order and they have been such a big hit we are now going to add them to our product list. We will have this bar along with our new batch of Fresh & Clean at the Pinewood Farmers Market this weekend.
Speaking of the market, we have some photos from last weekend we would like to share. We are enjoying being up in this area so much. Friendly customers and wonderful vendors makes for a fabulous weekend! If you are up in the area stop by and check it out. It is right off the freeway and just a 25 minute drive from Flagstaff and then you can get right back on. The food is so good! You will want to check out the shrimp tacos, they are awesome!
We now have two more blends available made with goats milk instead of cows milk. The Just For Me and the Lavender and Spearmint. These two powerful scents are now made with goat's milk and will be available tomorrow at the Pinewood Farmers Market in Munds Park. If you are headed up to Munds Park or Flagstaff for the weekend stop by and check out this great little market. We have an awesome group of vendors there and wonderful staff that put this nice community market on. So take a trip up north and cool off a bit, hope to see you there!
We would like to let you all know we finally added our new Arizona Citrus to our online store! We are now making this with a goat's milk base, so if you are a citrus fan and a goat's milk soap fan you are going to love this blend. We will also have this available at the Pinewood Farmers Market this Saturday, so come on up and beat the heat! This market has easy access and some awesome vendors.
We now have our Goat's Milk and Oatmeal bars available for purchase on the webstore! Yes, we took our time but they can be purchased online and shipped right to your front door! Of course we will also have them this Saturday June 9th at the Pinewood Farmers Market along with our newly updated Sea Kelp (now made with Kaui Red salt, also) and our new Mango Bliss! Both of these will make you think you're on a tropical vacation. So, check out our newly listed soap along with these updated summer favorites.
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 in it. Citrus essential oils tend not to hold up during the sopanification process because of heat. When making milk soap you sopanify at a very low temperature which in turn helps keep the scent from fading. Another difference that we added is a copper swirl of mica on top, representative of one of Arizona's great resources. This is cosmetic grade mica of course, and is okay 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 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!
