Wow! It's been too long since I've posted here. Needless to say, things have been busy. We've nearly survived the summer now, and indeed it is seeming more and more to be fall here. We have a few more weekends at our local farmer's market and then it's time for the holiday fairs!
In the last post I mentioned that we'd been testing out massage candles. They've been a big hit! We can barely keep up on production with them and they sell almost as quickly as our footsie bars!
In all honesty, we've had a hard time keeping up with all our stock. School started up and that meant that Pam has precious few hours to devote to production. And with a nearly-two-year-old in tow, I can't seem to get much done until after she's in bed. Ahh, the life of a business-mother-at-home.
This morning I did manage to place two large orders for supplies though and as soon as I was done with that, another order arrived at the door. It was essential oils! I love fragrance oils, but there's just something about essential oils that I really love too. Now I can finish making more massage oils for the market tomorrow. And massage candles. And footsie bars. We have a lot to do still -- I better get back to work!
This week we've made five batches of soap, one of them in our new silicon mold. Pomegranate, Autumn Whispers, Lavender, Bushels of Fun (which we may rename), and Roseberry. Hopefully I'll have some pictures of the newer scents soon.
