New Fragrance Oils

We have added four absolutely fantastic Fragrance Oils to our line. These scents are all vegan friendly and perfect for an entire line of candles, soaps and toiletries.

Green Irish Tweed
Creed's Green Irish Tweed was created for Cary Grant and later worn by Richard Gere, Robert Redford, Quincy Jones, Prince Charles and Clint Eastwood. This is an elegant, rich, sporty scent with notes of sandalwood, Florentine iris, herbaceous clover, French verbena, violet leaves and ambergris. It's simply what a well-dressed man ought to smell like!

Light Blue (Dolce & Gabanna type)
This scent was introduced by Dolce & Gabanna in 2001. A sparkling, lively scent with juicy Granny Smith apple, Sicilian citron, jasmine, white rose, Asian bamboo, cedar wood and amber. If you've tried a Dolce & Gabanna Light Blue dupe from other suppliers and have been disappointed, then give this one a try. We had this scent exclusively formulated to be stronger, more true to the original and have staying power - you won't find it anywhere else!

Black Raspberry Vanilla (BBW type)
True to the Bath & Bodyworks original, this scent fuses sweet black raspberries with rich, velvety vanilla cream and is a perfect bala nce of sweet and tart. Works well in candles, soaps and toiletries for a complete line. This scent works as a great blender.

Living Green - There are almost always options

Have you ever wondered how many acres of forest are cut down to provide the thousand and one paper and wood products we take for granted on a daily basis? Forests that combat global warming, forests that clean the air of carbon dioxide and pump out oxygen, forests that provide a habitat for hundreds of thousands of species of life.

Nobody thinks that we can live without paper and wood products, but responsible use will help slow the wholesale destruction of this invaluable natural resource.

* Save a tree, use less paper. You can buy "tree-free" 100 percent post-consumer recycled paper for everything from greeting cards to toilet paper. Paper with a high post- consumer waste content uses less virgin pulp and keeps more waste paper out of landfills.

* Want hardwood floors? Opt for bamboo. Bamboo is considered an environmentally friendly flooring material due to its high yield and the relatively fast rate at which it replenishes itself. It takes just four to six years for bamboo to mature, compared to 50-100 years for typical hardwoods. Just be sure to look for sources that use formaldehyde-free glues.

* Remove yourself from junk mail lists. Each person will receive almost 560 pieces of junk mail this year, which adds up nationally to 4.5 million tons, according to the Native Forest Network. About 44% of all junk mail is thrown in the trash, unopened and unread, and ends up in a landfill.
