New products and a bonus!

Once again, my poor blog has taken a back seat!  So what have I been doing?  Well, I had over 500 bars of soap to make, lotions, scrubs, lip balms & bath bombs to launch.  All while juggling family!  New products don't just happen.  I spend months researching, testing, reformulating, and testing again.  I will only launch products I am completely happy with, and will use on my own family.  This doesn't mean I won't change formulas - because I truly believe change is a good thing!  I am always looking for ways to make things even better.  

So let me introduce you to my new products!  

Sugar Scrub!  What's so great about sugar scrub?  Well.... this sugar scrub is AWESOME!  Massaging onto your wet skin turns it into a lotion type scrub.  It exfoliates, and rinses away leaving your skin soft and moisturized.  It isn't greasy, and is pretty thick.  I use loads of sugar.  I prefer it this way.  After all my tests, I felt a high sugar content left my skin softest.  I used a high about of Rice Bran oil, which is full of antioxidants.  It is supposed to do many things for your skin.... google it.  I can't make any claims ;)

  Lip Balm!  Available in several flavors!  I began adding Stevia to my balms, as most you find are sweetened. But what I found is it isn't necessary.  It can at times be a little gritty, (actually nice exfoliation!), and really isn't needed.  Our brains are pretty awesome.  Just the scent of the flavor makes us think we are tasting what we are smelling - even though there is no real flavor in the balm!  Crazy, isn't it?  So while I currently offer balms with Stevia, I will not be replacing them.  My balms are made with all natural oils, and don't have a heavy waxy feel.  Testers and I agree - the balm lasts for hours and doesn't need to be applied often!  Great for those of us who are addicted to lip products.... 

Solid lotion bars!  Yes, lotion can be solid!  What is great about solid lotion?  Glad you asked!  It is great for on the go!  When I fly, I don't check my luggage.  Now I have one less thing to cram into my tiny zipper bag!  I also love that I can rub onto my body and not have lotion all over my hands, or stuck in my rings.  My kids love them too, and I don't have to worry about the mess!  My 8 year old has severe Eczema, and the lotion bars are a lift saver for her.  They are made with high quality, skin loving oils & butters, and soften with just the heat of your skin.  Another great thing about solid lotion bars?  No water = no preservative! (More on that later)

Bath Bombs!  I didn't understand all the hype about bath bombs until I tried them myself.  They leave your skin so soft it's crazy!  And they are fun!  They fizz for a bit, sending the scent floating into the air.  I have had so much fun with these, I may start making Bath Bomb cupcakes..... which would also bubble.  That is several months away though.  But hmmmmm..... 

I hope you are as excited about my new products as I am!  In fact, I think it is time for a special!  Order $25 or more, and get a free bar of rustic luxury soap free!  (All orders must be placed through the website to qualify. I will include a bar in your order!)
