A Drink For Your Skin!

I wanted to offer something different so I decided to make a Pink Lemonade Body Butter.  It is made from Raw African Shea Butter as is most of our Body Whips, Body Balms, and Body Butters.  This Body Butter is so fresh smelling, not that child like sweetness that you get with most fruit and citrus scented products.  It goes on nice and smooth, quickly melting into your skin to give it that much needed drink of moisture, especially as the days get colder and colder in this season.

Our Pink Lemonade Body Butter also features Karanj Oil which is known to relieve itching skin and some wounds; Grape Seed Oil leaves a light satin feeling on the skin and is known to have some anti-aging benefits as well as keeping your skin supple and    giving your skin an even tone.

Many are the benefits of Shea Butter for skin, its known to help relieve dry and itching skin, assists with softening stretch marks, moisturizes chapped skin, wrinkles, signs of aging, soothes rough skin, helps with eczema, skin rashes, dermatitis, and can be used in massage to relieve muscle aches and tension.

I like this Body Butter after a long day, and I need a mental pick me up. I just jump in the shower and while my skin is still wet I smooth on this Body Butter.  Smells yummy and feels really good on the skin.

Pinterest!

Pinterest, Pinterest, Pinterest.  That’s all I kept coming across in my emails, on my Face Book page and in conversations with friends; I saw this or that on Pinterest, I pinned something on my board.  Some even suggested that I check it out.  I thought to myself “Hey, I have a personal Face Book page, and a Fan Page for business. I don’t need another thing to have to manage.”  So, without further ado and after a year of hearing about it, reading about it, and debating about it, I have finally created a Pinterest account.

Now, for me right now, it’s a little overwhelming.  I’m trying to see all I can see, read all I can read, like and comment on the things I see, but I’m still trying to figure out how I want to use Pinterest to best benefit me and the hubby.  We both have businesses that I think could benefit from being on Pinterest, but I’m not sure if its the best way or best thing for us to do right now.

What if our postings get really great attention and we actually start making even more than we have been making through our FB pages? That would be great.  The increase in business would be really great, but what concerns me is being able to handle the business from Pinterest, FB, and even our personal encounters of people that we tell about our business.  I mean from what I’ve seen people are posting everything from things that they sell as a business, things they sell like a garage sell, things that they use in their home, craft projects, gifts, art, movies, music, photos and so much more.

So I’ll give it the first 30 days and see how things go.  I’ve started one board and plan to add some more items to it to see how the exposure turns out.

Do you have a Pinterest account?  How do you use yours?  Is it beneficial for what you want to use it for? Did you end up using it for something other than what your first intention was?

Opportunity Knocks!

Ok, so, Wednesday of this week I had a meeting with a spa owner.  I’m still taking all of that part in…I had a meeting with a spa owner!

I had contacted her about a month ago and we’ve been doing an email dance.  We finally made contact and set the meeting.  We sat down and talked for about an hour.  She enjoyed smelling the samples that I had created for her; a healthy helping of our body butters, and scrubs.  I even threw in a jar of our Naturally Good Body Balm.  She gave a run down of products that she is looking to incorporate into her business when she does her spa parties.

Immediately my wheels began turning.  She actually is looking to put our products in her spa to use with her clients and to offer to them for sale.  The interview was quite intensive, but I was ready and absolutely willing to offer her the information that she needed and even offered some suggestions that she took with a great smile on her face.

I left there will a feeling of gratefulness and wearing the fragrance of accomplishment.  I did some research to look for some things that I think she would like to incorporate and even suggested making some products specifically for her spa, her own brand made by us.  I’m so happy right now.  I have a shipment of new ingredients coming in by next Tuesday and I can’t wait to start mixing and testing things to have a whole other group of items to offer her.

This is an opportunity that I’ve been looking for for a long time.  I pray that it leads to more doors opening.

Opportunity Knocks!  I’m  ready!

The Arrival

 It’s here, and I’m pleased to announce our Himalayan Pink Body Scrub.  It features Himalayan Pink Salt and White Sugar.  We added some yummy oils like Sesame, Rice Bran, Sweet Almond, Avocado, and Extra Virgin Olive Oil.

We tried to pack it with as much of our favorite skin loving things as we could and we are very pleased with the results.  It has a blend of Tangerine and Lemon Grass Essential Oils in, but very light so it’s not overpowering.  It is truly a treat that takes you away to the finest spa, imagining of course. LOL!

Anyway, We are hoping that our clients will enjoy it as much as we do.  Himalayan Pink salt has so many benefits for the skin and this is why we chose it.  Maybe next time we’ll do a scrub with just Himalayan Pink Salt and the delicious oils, a salt glow  perhaps.

Island Vacation

Hello. I just wanted to give a glimpse of our new “Island Vacation” Sugar Scrub, available at Fragrance Cafe’
I so enjoyed putting this one together. I took the fragrance that we selected, phalate free of course, and blended it with Extra Virgin Coconut Oil, and all I can say is WOW!
It takes your mind away to some place exotic. We add organic cane sugar, and Grapefruit Seed Extract. Indulge your senses with this scrub, we may have to make a lotion or body butter with this scent because is just that beautiful.
How about a delicate and masterful blend of grapefruit zest, succulent, and juicy mango, and sandalwood. This description pales in comparison to how beautiful the scent is in this scrub.

Love My Face

This is just a simple facial scrub that I actually created for myself. Pure Coconut Oil (unscented), Lemongrass EO, and Cedarwood EO. I like the way the Coconut Oil moisturizes my skin after I rinse the scrub off.

Cedarwood EO is an astringent. It’s good for acne, eczema, and oily skin. Lemongrass EO is a bactericidal, an anti-oxidant and anti-septic just to name a few. Plus I love the smell of Lemon Grass EO.

I like not having to apply pressure or scrub the scrub off my face because the product is too heavy. I made this scrub just to treat myself to something special that I know will do exactly what I need it to do and nothing extra. I have experienced a couple really harsh store bought scrub and that’s why I made this. I normally just use my little face brush to exfoliate, but like I said, this is for when I want to give myself a little treat.

What are some ways you “love your face”? Do you use anything special? Why did you choose that particular thing? I’d love to hear from you.
