Fun with purpose

I love doing product reviews and I also like when people are kind enough to review us.

Reviews are not only useful to other shoppers, it helps your web ranking, and lets us know how we're doing

So here's a review of one of my faves!

Sugared Euphoria
Best Bath bombs ever. I met Sarah a bit ago when her mom ordered from my shop, than she did and so the story goes. She has this insane passion for bath and beauty it was no suprise that she started creating. The creations that come out of this small home based company is incredible, it's as though she's been doing this for years! I have had the pleasure of trying many bath bombs that I have bought to laze in the tub with (if my son doesn't use them first)
I adore the viva la juicy bath bomb

The scent stays on your skin for a longtime!!! and the towel used to dry off leaves the bathroom lightly scented. The grapeseed oil leaves your skin sooooo soft but not greasy. I honestly just bought 5 of these in one trip so I don't run out!

Love the shop! Love the owner! Love handmade!

No news is good news

So it's been a long time since I have posted I know. I got stuck with having to do the google chrome crossover and such.

Right now we are soooooo busy. Just our mineral mud and ugly bar keep us on our toes with near constant production. Next month out tealights will be featured in the La Femme Film Festival swag awesome! we are so proud and will keep you updated.

So if you've noticed we have almost all the same things on our website as on etsy....sadly we can't cut etsy loose as they are the main traffic source foor our growing brand....but one day...

I have made a big decision to go back to our roots and get back into more essential oils than fragrances for body care. I will still use fragrances for candles, but it appears when it comes to the body people want look for our new custom blend 100% natural body stuff coming all this month!

i'll be back soon! Tanya PS now that we will have our blog up and running smoothly we'd love to offer some banner exchange spots on our site. if interested contact me asap
