Chris and I hit it off and bonded over our mutual love of Star Wars all the way back in college. I'd only ever seen the movies, and he introduced me to the extended universe collection of novels, comics, and source books that are now no longer canon after Disney's buyout. Still, when they announced Episode VII, we were cautiously optimistic.
Like a lot of fans, we weren't overly fond of the prequels, but we were loyal to the fandom as a whole. We hoped Disney would harken back to Episodes IV-VI, and we were relieved they did when we took the girls to see the newest installment earlier this year. Our eldest is just as big of a fan as we are, and she's so attached to Rey, I simply had to make a scent inspired by her. I also couldn't stop there, so I decided to make a soap inspired by Finn as well.
First up, we have The Awakened which was inspired by Rey. This earthy and spicy scent is a blend of carnation, sandalwood, cinnamon, fresh soil, and musk.
The soaps are a blend of goat milk and glycerin soap hand cut to resemble an abstract blue lightsaber floating on a field of marbled cream and tan.
Next there's Rebel Trooper inspired by Finn. The soaps are a blend of goat milk and glycerin soap colored with mineral oxide and mica powder hand shaped to resemble an abstract close up on Finn's blood streaked helmet.
The fragrance is a rich blend of sage, cinnamon, fir, pine needles, strawberries, citrus, white sandalwood, orange blossom, lily of the valley, lavender, and musk.
Like all our bath and body products, these soaps are dye, detergent, paraben, and phthalate free to be as gentle as possible. They will become available through our store on June 25, 2016.
I've been getting into a bit of anime, so I've decided to add a couple inspired by some of the series I've been watching this year. Last year it was Death Note, this year it's Fullmetal Alchemist and Fairy Tail.
First up is Littlest Alchemist, inspired by Edward Elric from Fullmetal Alchemist. The scent is a bright yet spicy blend of grapefruit, orange, pineapple, clove, nutmeg, black amber, and old books. The soaps are a blend of our goat milk and glycerin soaps colored using mineral oxide and mica powders.
Next is Fairy Queen, inspired by Erza Scarlet from Fairy Tail. This rich and slightly sweet fragrance is a blend of sweet strawberry, vanilla cream, white gardenia, clove, nutmeg, frankincense, and black amber.
The soaps are a blend of goat milk and glycerin soap colored with mineral oxide and mica powders.
Like all our bath and body products, the soaps are detergent, dye, phthalate, and paraben free to be as gentle as possible. The soaps will be available June 25, 2016.
Today we have another Doctor Who inspired fragrance for you. Now that all thirteen versions of The Doctor have scents, we're turning our attention to a companion. Donna Noble is my favorite companion among the "New Who" companions, so I had to make a fragrance inspired by her.
The soaps are a mix of goat milk and glycerin blends in bright red, sparkling gold, and purple all marbled together. The scent is a rich and feminine blend of marine, ozone, bergamot, lemon, orange, green tea, jasmine, amber, water orchid, coconut, and musk.
Like all of our bath and body products, they are dye, detergent, phthalate, and paraben free to be as gentle as possible while still providing luxurious design and fragrance.
Today's fragrance was inspired by the Futurama marathon Chris and I had last summer. Specifically, it was inspired by the recurrent pop culture of the future figure, Hypno Toad.
The fragrance is a rich and woodsy blend of oakmoss, sandalwood, tonka bean, lemon, petitgrain, water orchid, spruce, balsam fir, mahogany, teak, cedar, and oak. The soaps are a blend of our goat milk and glycerin soaps colored with mineral oxide powders.
The "eyes" are hand cut, making each one unique.
Like all of our bath and body products, these soaps are detergent, dye, paraben, and phthalate free to be as gentle as possible. Like the other new fragrances, these will become available June 25.
Comic books fans will enjoy our first two fragrances for the 2016 line.
Inspired by the various versions of The Flash, Speedster is an energizing blend of grapefruit, orange, pineapple, blackberry, raspberry, magnolia, pine and fir, cedar, eucalyptus, warm woods, and a hint of vanilla.
The soaps are a blend of our goat milk and glycerin soaps colored with mineral oxide powders.
Girl Power was inspired by all the versions of Supergirl out there today. It's an interesting blend of sweet and spicy with notes of rich maple syrup, pecans, sandalwood, frankincense, myrrh, patchouli, and the fresh scent of line dried laundry.
The bars are all glycerin soap colored with mineral oxide and mica powders.
These scents and all the other new fragrances will be available beginning Saturday, June 25, 2016.
Mother's Day is approaching fast here in the United States. Sunday, May 8th will be here before you know it. Don't get caught off guard.
Our latest fragrances were designed with mother's in mind. Whether she's a floral fanatic or has a sweet tooth, you'll find something for her here.
We're getting ready for our first seasonal scent transition on the new schedule, so we're designing a couple new fragrances for you.
First up is Strawberry Picking, a bright and fresh yet earthy blend of strawberries, dirt, honey, citrus, peach, rose, jasmine, and lily.
The soaps are a blend of our goat milk and glycerin soaps designed to resemble an abstract strawberry patch on a sunny day. Like all our soaps, they are detergent, dye, paraben, and phthalate free to be as gentle as possible while providing excellent cleansing power. They are colored with mineral oxide powders.
Please join us next week to see the second new spring seasonal fragrance before they both make their debut on March 1.
Long time fans will remember our classic strawberries and champagne scent, but they might not recognize it's new look. Gone is the massive heart shaped soap. The bars are now made of sparking, lacy white glycerin with the classic pink, goat milk heart inserted within them. Surrounding the heart are curls of gold mica.
These beauties are sure to be a welcome addition to your sweetheart's Valentine's Day. They're available in our store now, but they won't be for long! Make sure to pick yours up now.
I'm excited to tell you about a new tradition we're starting. You already know about our seasonal scents, but we're also adding special holiday fragrances and designs to our yearly rotation! These specials will be made available for only four to six weeks around their holiday, and of course, we're beginning with Thanksgiving and Christmas.
These two new fragrances are available now through New Year's Day, and once they're gone, they aren't returning until the week before Thanksgiving 2016. So, stock up while you can!
No Thanksgiving would be complete without pumpkin. Pumpkin Maple Crunch is a decadent blend of cinnamon, nutmeg, pumpkin, rich maple syrup, and crunchy pecan. The soaps are a blend of our glycerin and goat milk soaps in a warm amber with toffee colored swirls and chunks and baring a cheerful pumpkin in the middle.
What's more reminiscent of holiday cheer than the kitchen at Grandma's house when it's packed with relatives and holiday goodies? Bring those memories back with this bright blend of vanilla bean, cinnamon, peppermint, warm apple pie, and just a hint of coffee brewing in the background.
The soaps are our glycerin and goat milk recipes colored with mineral oxides and mica powders.
Due to popular demand, we will be adding plain goat milk soaps to our regular lineup year round. These soaps will have our standard goat milk base recipe using coconut oil, palm butter, vitamin E oil, and goat milk. What they will not have is detergents, dyes or any other colorants, fragrance, parabens, and phthalates.
Because they are just plain soap without any fragrance, special designs, or any kind of colorant at all, they will be priced $1 less than our fancier bars per weight. So a large 4.5-5.9 ounce bar will only cost $5.00.
The first few bars are in the molds now, so watch for them coming up in their own category within our shop sometime early next week.
