Market Day. The weather was nice and a lot of people came out to the market today. Some local produce is starting to come in and that always brings in the customers.  I just love spring.  I hope the sun is out tomorrow because I could use some vitamin D.  Happy weekend to you.

I have a wonderful customer that loves my Tea Tree Soap.  He was buying an over the counter cleanser for his adult acne which was not working very well.  We talked and he decided to try my Tea Tree Soap and now he no longer needs the OTC products.  Tea tree is a wonderful oil. It is a natural antiseptic and works great to help clear blimishes.  You should give it a try.

I hope everyone had a wonderful Valentine’s Day with your sweetie. I had a good day at the farmer’s market. It has been a little slow so far this year, but things will pick up soon when the spring crops come in. Hope to see some of your smiling faces at the market soon.

We had a really good day at the Pike Road Arts & Crafts Show on Saturday.  The weather was nice.  A little on the cool side to put everyone in the mood for Christmas shopping.  It’s hard to believe Christmas is almost here.  Keep an eye on the website for some Christmas specials coming soon.

Today I am working on products for the Pike Road Craft Show coming up in November. I have unscented soap ready to slice and I am currently making Magnolia lotion. I am out of both at the market. I hope I can get the Magnolia Soap made today also. I’ll keep you posted on progress.

I finally got out to the shop to make some Lavender Basil Hand and Body Cream. It smells so wonderful. A nice clean scent. We spent most of the day working on our Ninja Unit Study. I love homeschooling my boys. I am learning so much. 🙂

Achieve Beautiful Skin

natural-skin-careCosmetics/ beauty products is a billion dollar industry. Out in the market today are a range of products, mostly for women that are meant to beautify, improve and enhance. The skin gets the most attention, however. There are lotions, scrubs, toners, etc. that are created to make the skin smoother, whiter and more even toned. Creams are also widely used to achieve basically the same effects.

The most popular of these kinds of products are handmade shea butter soap. Only recently, a new kind of soap has become available. This is the exfoliating soap. This is the kind of soap that gently and gradually removes the outer layers of the skin. This outer layer naturally dies and sheds to expose a new and youthful layer. Needless to say, women love this and so the big sale of exfoliating soaps.

Remembering Your Special Day

wedding-day-itinerary-2If you know somebody that just got married, it can be an exciting and a scary time for that new couple. Although they are undoubtedly very much in love right now, staggering divorce rates can put a damper on even the most enthusiast love bugs. So if you’re looking for a special gift that will remind those newlyweds what love and romance are all about, look into wedding gift baskets that will focus on the future.

While chocolates and treats are nice now, a far more meaningful custom gift baskets would be a basket full of the makings for a time capsule. The young couple can fill it with pictures of their wedding day, and they can also write letters to each other. This way, when the time capsule is opened far in the future-perhaps on a 25th or even 50th wedding anniversary-the couple can be reminded of just how much they were (and still are) in love.
