Spa Quality Bath and Beauty Products, and Beyond!

"Why should I buy handmade bath and body products?", you ask? For the same reasons you want to eat healthy foods, and take your vitamins! Commercial body products such as lotions and soaps contain numerous synthetic ingredients, some of which you probably don't want to know where they came from. These can be very harsh on your skin, in spite of the label's claim to Moisturize or Protect. Some preservatives, such as parabens, are even believed to have a link to cancer. Why take that chance, when all natural products are widely available and their ingredients have proven over time that they are vastly superior? Over the next few posts, I will highlight one or two ingredients I use, and list some of the benefits they can bring!

I'm not usually comfortable with "tooting my own horn", so to speak, but I'm so happy with the products I have been making (Yes, I have used them all!) that I wanted to share this with you! Since I first started making sugar scrubs this Spring, my friends and family members have been regularly buying them, and eagerly trying out all my new creations. (Thanks guys!)It's not just friends and family who enjoy them is what a happy customer said about her lotion bar purchase from my Etsy store:

"It is wonderful! I love it! It mailed just fine, barely smudged the bag, unlike the lotion bars I order from [a major online retailer of natural bath and body products], which generally arrive in liquid form (ugh). Your's was cheaper, bigger, arrived faster (and not liquified), and I loved the scent! So I do believe I will switch to buying them from you exclusively. =] Is there any chance you might be able to make a vanilla-scented one? I noticed, as popular as vanilla is, you didn't have it listed, and it's my absolute favorite."

Of course, I added vanilla as soon as my shipment arrived from my supplier, along with many other scents! Right now I offer them as a "choose your scent" listing, but I will be trying new shapes and sizes, so I will also be listing individual scents in my ArtFire store. I have some sample sizes ready to post now as soon as I get my pictures edited!
As always, feel free to contact me. If you have a favorite scent that you don't see listed, just let me know...if I don't have it, I can get it!
I am also working on lip balms and lip gloss, and will have those available soon.
