Warmer weather, bursting buds, fresh new flowers. Spring is certainly here! Of course, here in Colorado those beautiful warm days are interrupted with snow storms and blizzards on occasion too, but we don't worry - it will all be melted in a day or two!
Every spring we plan to have a few new scents in our soaps and other products, but for now, I'll just stick to what we have ready and in stock.
In this season, most people are ready to put aside the spicy, foody, and more winter-related scents and opt for fresh and floral. (In soapmaking, floral fragrances are the most challenging because they are often responsible for "acceleration" which basically means that the soap gets really thick really fast and we have to rush to mix in additives and colors and swirling pretty can be very difficult.)
Here are some springtime favorites from Blissology:
Lavender Footsie Bar
It's almost time to break out the sandals and flip flops! And sometimes our feet need a little help to really be ready to show off. Footsie Bars are the absolute best moisturizer to take care of tootsies with rough, dry, and calloused areas. It's a hard lotion bar without the mess.
Lavender Lemongrass Lip Balm
Mountain Showers Soap
Fresh, clean, cool rain. This soap is a favorite year-round but surely it should be mentioned for April Showers!
Winter is rough on skin. So now, it's time to rehydrate and condition it. Blissology's Vita-Skin lotion has extra vitamins and extra-good-for-you oils to treat skin right.
Acai Berry Fizzy Bath Salt
No matter the season, a hot bath can be extremely therapeutic for body, mind, and soul. This salt fizzes briefly in the water releasing a wonderful berry scent. Highly recommended!
Beautiful Life Salt Scrub
This is another much needed step to rejuvenate winter-tired skin. Salt scrubs away dead and dry skin while oils replenish and moisturize the new skin. If you do only one special thing for your skin this season, it should be a salt or sugar scrub!
Fresh, bright, and like a kiss of sunshine! Yuzu (or Japanese Grapefruit), is such a delicious way to welcome spring.
