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.

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.

You can find out more about it and our other products at Fragrance Cafe’

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.

Brown Sugar Body Polish

Ok, one of the things I’ve been working on is scrubs. It started with a request from one of my faithful clients and just grew from there. I really want to get into offering fresh scrubs for our clients, but for now we have this wonderful Brown Sugar Body Polish, and then we have Hawaiin Kona Coffee Scrub, and our Gourmet Brown Sugar Scrub (1st one created) with lots of goodies in it.
The Body Polish features Organic Raw Sugar and a host of our favorite carrier oils, honey, and grapefruit seed extract. Of course I was the first to try it and I love it.

I’m loving the research and knowledge that I gain from taking this step of faith in my business so, I’ll see how far it can go. Happy Scrubbing! Maybe I need to find a coach or somebody I can learn from hands on.

Thanks for reading. Feel free to share your thoughts.

One Thing Leads to Another

Ok, I’m feeling so honored right now.

A loyal client of mine came to pick up a jar of the new Cocoa Butter Almond Body Butter the other day.

She was ranting and raving about how she couldn’t wait to get home to try it so, she applied some to her hands at the first stop light.  Now I’m thinking to myself when she told me that “Good thing its not greasy”…so anyway, she was and is very satisfied with the product.

She called, rather texted me to find out if I was making soaps or scrubs yet and I said no.  She said she loves sugar scrubs and to keep her posted when I start making scrubs.  Well, in an effort to appeal to and keep a client satisfied I began to ask her a series of questions to find out what she looks for in a scrub, and some of her previous experiences with scrubs.  After about 5 minutes of texting back and forth, I kind of had an idea of what to make for her, but I don’t make scrubs right? LOL!

So, I said to her “well, I can pick up a few things and put a scrub together just for you if you like”  I could actually feel the smile on her face as she texted back…oh my God that would be the bomb…she asked if I could make it in the scent that I used in the body butter and of course I said yes.  She went on to say, the body butter smelled so good she wanted to eat it.  I guess that’s a plus, but I don’t recommend it.

So I’ve been doing some research as to what I want to include in her scrub to make it luxurious and pleasing for her.  I guess this means once the word gets out I’ll be doing custom sugar scrubs too. 

One thing can definately lead to another if you keep your options open.

Options

Okay so, I haven’t written much of anything in a while. Trust me it is NOT due to lack of things to write about. LOL…there is a ton of things going on that I wish not to be going on, and a ton more of things that I wish were going on, but are NOT.

I have been doing alot of research for some product sources and resources for suppliers of things that I need to create new body butters, ointments, and other products for Fragrance Cafe’. That keeps me so occupied that by the end of the day after marketing as much as possible, research, and note taking I’m too exhausted to write anything but Hello and Good Night.

Anyway, I have come to a small delima. We create our body butters out of some pretty delicate butters and oils. We have clients and friends, out of state, that want to order our products, but I hate, really hate shipping our butters in the warmer summer months. I mean just imagine you order a body butter and by the time it gets to you, it’s body soup, LOL! Yes, our clients are happy to throw it right into the fridge to bring it back to being solid, but I just rather that they wouldn’t have to go through that.
Is there anybody else out there that has these types of products and face the same problem? If so, what are you doing about it? I really need some other options here.

I look forward to your helpful comments.

Wear Your Rice!

I Tried some Rice Bran Oil on my body this morning instead of my favorite lotion…I really like the way it feels on my skin. It’s not heavy and absorbs pretty easily. A plus is that it will not clog pores and it’s high in antioxidants and tocotrienols (the good stuff in vitamin E).

From what I’ve read it has properties that help to protect your skin from harmful UVB rays. I’m trying it for a month to see how it treats my skin. I’m looking for it to keep me soft and smooth which attributes to younger looking skin.

This one has the potential to become a favorite of mine right along with grape seed oil, sweet almond oil, avocado oil, and evoo.

What are some oils that you use and what do you like best about them?

I posted “Naturally Good” about one of our products that we create with all natural ingredients. We created this product to not only moisturize the skin, but to actually have skin renewal capabilities and softening properties.

I’m doing this post because I myself had a moment where I needed something to help with a special little rash that I developed on top of both my hands. I had my hands in some water with a few cleaning products for a couple days straight and paid the price with the skin on my hands becoming irritated.
When it first started I just dealt with it by putting some really good lotion on it, but that just wasn’t working for me. So, one day I sat down to the computer and began doing some research on some natural ways to heal the rash and make my skin smooth again.
I think I…
