More Ladybug Soapworks Spotting

From Nature with Love is a great local supplier for me. They carry many hard to find items. They also have a great blog where they regularly describe uses for their ingredients. You should take some time to check it out. They also post lots of great recipes that I love to try out from time to time. Recently, they posted a bunch of soap pictures and included my Chai Tea soap. Check out the blog here.

Shealoe Prebuy?

I am looking to see how much interest there is in a Shealoe prebuy. I get this stuff directly from the manufacturer and it is sold in 35lb increments. I think it will be around $6 per pound plus shipping to you. I use the Shealoe to make wonderful sugar scrubs. I love the way it leaves my skin feeling so moisturized. The ingredients are Butyrospermum parkii (shea butter), aloe barbadensis Leaf Juice, polysorbate 60, sorbitan stearate, Imidazolidinyl urea, methylparaben, propylparaben, potassium sorbate, BHT, sorbic acid. This is the same Shealoe sold at all the other suppliers only much cheaper. Let me know if this is something you would be interested in. If I can get enough people interested I will get an exact price. To give you an idea of the shipping costs, the last time I did this I was able to fit 10lb in a small flat rate priority box.

Whipping up some soapy goodness!

I am trying to replenish all of my stock. First up is my redesigned Chamomile Shea soap. I have started to make my soap in larger batches and will be changing over all my soap to this new shape. This soap is made with some Chamomile infused oils and a Chamomile tea as my water. You can purchase this lovely soap at my etsy store or my main online store. This next soap is my super gentle Calendula Castile. Again this is made from both Calendula infused olive oil and a Calendula tea as the water portion. This is a very gentle unscented soap. You can purchase this lovely soap at my etsy store or my main online store.
More soapy pictures to come soon!

New Etsy Purchases!

I have been dying to get some new jewelry from Etsy. There are so many talented artists it was hard to choose what I wanted. My cheap Target bangles have started to discolor so I went on the hunt for some new bangles. Check out these beauties that I just picked up from Painted Metal. I can't wait to wear them!An added plus is that all I had to do is tell the seller how I found her store and I got these beautiful earrings for free.I also picked up a very unique necklace from Meetalls. It is copper with beautiful patina. I think I am in jewelry heaven! I love Etsy!
