More new products for you!

We have had a few more new products to arrive since our move.

Moisturizing Body Spray Base
Our luxury bath/body Moisturizing Base will leave your skin and hair feeling silky smooth! This base will make a nice body mist, body splash, and hair conditioner. Base will take up to 10% fragrance load but typically a 3%-6% fragrance load will yield the best results. Works with most fragrance oils and essential oils.

Soy Lip Balm Base with SPF-15 Sunscreen
This vegan natural lip balm base offers exceptional protection to your lips and is formulated with wax derived from soy beans, luxury oils and exotic butters and does not contain beeswax. It is rich in Vitamin E, made from totally natural vegetable ingredients and contains no animal products. It has a very creamy consistency, is not sticky and is long wearing. No preservative is needed.


Atlantic Sea Kelp
An upscale spa-type scent that is fresh, clean, and full of salty ozone.
Notes of watery greens are surrounded by white musk and vetiver.

Cranberry Yuzu

An upscale and exotic fusion of sparkling Asian Yuzu with juicy cranberries.
This beautifully balanced medley will please the most sophisticated noses.
Cranberry Yuzu is well-suited for a full line of products: candles, soaps and toiletries.

Frosted Cupcake

A deliciously decadant, moist white cupcake covered in
rich, smooth buttercream frosting.
You can't resist this one - ooh la la!

Clementine Lavender

A calming and balancing scent that is clean and pure.
Herbal French Lavender mingles with fruity notes of sweet clementine and
hints of tangerine. The scent is rounded out and balanced by a bed of
aromatic bergamot and Italian lemon bottom notes.
Clementine Lavender is the perfect choice for aromatherapy and spa lines.

A 'Living Green' Tip

Cleaning with Lemons

It seems every cleaner manufacturer is rushing to get on the green bandwagon these days. Clorox just released its new line, Green Works (TM), and you can be sure others will follow. But here's a secret: green cleaners existed long before these products came about. Sorry Clorox!

If you're serious about going green, give lemons a try. They disinfect. They polish. They bleach. And they don't come encased in a plastic bottle with a big price tag attached.

Cut the junk by cutting your disposable drinking cup habit. Instead of a foam or paper cup, sip your daily dose out of your own travel mug if you're on the go, or ask the cafe for a mug if you have a few minutes to hang.

* Cutting waste. If you purchase one cup of coffee every day in a disposable container, you create about 23 lbs. of waste each year.

* Fewer noxious chemicals. Polystyrene (styrofoam) can potentially disrupt your hormones, and the chlorine used to bleach paper cups creates carcinogenic dioxins during production.

* Saving cash. Many coffee houses offer a small discount to customers who bring their own reusable containers.

Thrifty Tip:

I hate to waste Scotch tape by turning the end over to keep it from getting "lost" in those cheap dispensers. Finally I discovered that if I place a bit of plastic cut from a coffee can lid under the end instead, that bit of tape will still be usable (and "findable")!

Our move has been completed

What a MAJOR task, but we're finished! The move took 5 tractor trailers which was more than we expected. Who knew we had so much stuff. LOL It took a bit longer than we anticipated, but everything is now in the new warehouse and things are beginning to come together. Most of the pallets have been unpacked and organized. Heather, the Warehouse Manager has done a fantastic job. So has Christine. They've worked like crazy women getting everything unpacked and organized.

Our shipping schedule has returned to normal. We're caught up now with no backlog. Once we have everything where we want it, I'll post more photos. We'll now have a "sniffy closet" for anyone who wants to come by and smell the fragrances. That will be so much fun!
