Peach Snow

That's what it looked like, anyway. I was making Figgy Pudding Gift Sets yesterday and one of the items in the set is Fizzy Bath Salts. I made a large bowl of it, colored it slightly and scented it with pumpkin citrus melange. Yum. After I mixed it, it looked like fluffy snow and since I don't have snow here in Florida, I sat with my peach snow for a moment. Outside in the warm air.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Apple Crisp Whipped Shea Butter

Oh, let me tempt you just a little.

My cousin explained to me why she hates foodie smells. She said to me, " Jo, why do I want to smell like food when I already feel fat? So men can look at me, take a whif and decide that I eat too much and rub it all over my body, too?? No thanks."

I guess that's a good point though I don't think she's fat nor do I think guys are thinking she's rubbing pie on her body because she's run out of Chanel # whatever. I don't feel that way about food scents. Food smells, if they are high quality fragrances, can be divine and can bring me RIGHT down memory lane.

I had a wholesale customer ask me to make Whipped Shea Butter in Apple Crisp fragrance for pedicure and leg massages in her shop in Maine. I have extra, so I have listed them on the Product Body website if you are interested. I put some on and wished it wasn't 78 degrees today. I wanted to buy some mulling spices and sit in front of a fire instead.

Creme Fresh

Ah yes, Creme Fresh in Sweet Lemon Pie.

This is our new cream made with natural ingredients except for the paraben-free preservative (for safety!) and fragrance oil. Right now, it is only available in the Figgy Pudding Gift Set which is aggressively priced at $29.00 (includes the Creme Fresh, a Trial sized Crush On You in apple crisp, a chunk of graham cracker soap and Fizzy Bath Salts in pumpkin melange).

Made some today. Thought I'd share what my whipped cream batch looked like. I DID feel like licking it. No joke.

The Saponifier Magazine

Did you know I wrote an article for The Saponifier Magazine? Tamara Dourney is the managing editor and asked if I'd be interested in writing for the magazine. Well, I'm not the best writer even AT ALL, but with my husband's editing expertise, it worked out just fine.

'Herbal Wisdom' Editor

Oh yeah. Would I have ever guessed I'd be one of those? Not a chance. And I bet you are shaking your head wondering what drug I've been taking. Go see for yourself : meet the team
I'd love to do this for every issue, but I'm not sure how long they'll want me. I'm not sure how much herbal wisdom this noggin has. I'm good at researching though. THAT I can do well.
And I take photographs (they used two!) taht aren't too bad. I'm actually pretty excited to be a part of The Saponifier and I look forward to earning the title. :o)

Trixie's Beauty Bar

I think I love Tracy Menasco, owner of Trixie's Beauty Bar in Portland. When I called her recently to follow up on a shipment to make sure our products arrived okay, Tracy said sternly, "Joanna." My heart sunk. "Yes, Tracy." "Joanna, that Coconut Bath is like crack. We are all addicted to it."

When she said my name at first, I thought there was a problem, but thank goodness we have addiction problems instead. ;)

Figgy Pudding

We have a holiday gift set now available called FIGGY PUDDING which I think will knock your socks off! It is holiday based, so be aware all of the scents are geared that way.

We’ve formulated a limited edition two-tone version of Crush On You, combined it with 3 new products in complimentary seasonal scents, and put them in a lovely box complete with ribbon and our new “Handmade Fresh” seals. Priced at only $29, each gift set includes:

New Product: Crème Fresh. A 4 ounce jar of our latest moisturizing body cream. It’s an incredibly rich and powerful blend of aloe vera, shea and cocoa butters, and sunflower oil. No parabens, no petroleum products, 99% natural, 100% amazing. Offered in sweet lemon pie.

New Product: Soap! Thanks to the wonderful response from our product testers, we’re making our handmade soap available to everyone. This graham cracker-scented delight is hand cut one bar at a time, lathers beautifully, and smells amazing.

New Product: Fizzy Bath Sea Salts. A combination of our popular bath bombs (in powder form) and delightful sea salts. The fizziness explodes with scent while the salts slowly dissolve, leaving you soft and smelling great. Comes in a pouch, offered in pumpkin mélange.

Special Edition: Crush On You. formulated in a limited edition two-tone (colored using natural cinnamon) version. Offered in apple crisp, this version is warm, playful, and available ONLY in the Figgy Pudding Gift Set.

The entire set is gift wrapped in a beautiful, simple white glossy box and tied with a ribbon.

We aggressively priced this gift set so it would fit into the budget more than higher ticket items. If you are interested in a larger gift, you can email me and we can set something up for you. :o)

The Figgy Pudding Sets are being shipped beginning on Monday, so if you order one, be patient. Soaps are almost ready. Check it out at Product Body!

Tuesday Tips + Treats

If you are a customer of ours and have signed up for our newsletter, then you know Product Body has started something new. Every Tuesday we send out an email featuring one of our products. We describe its beneficial ingredients and describe its wonderfulness and offer a 20% off coupon for that product for an entire week. We also include a special feature: The SHE SAYS/HE SAYS section where Brad (my husband and business partner) and I discuss how we use the product.

It is a great way to learn about our products, get coupons on products you weren't sure you wanted to pay full pop for, and to hear about how the owner and her husband uses the stuff! We never sell your name or information to ANYONE, because we just aren't THOSE people.

If you are not a customer and do not have an account with us, you can sign up without buying anything and receive our emails until you get a coupon for a product you want and then... SNAP it up! Tomorrow is Tuesday. Just saying.
