The Shop Has Been Buzzing

People have been coming into the shop and have been super interested in the soaps we've been making. All of the soaps we carry we make the old fashioned way...with lye and oils and are cured for four weeks. We currently have these in the shop:

Baby Rose Cupcake
Creamsicle Honeymoon
Naked Nellie

Rhubarb Yuzu with avocado and cocoa butters

Fresh Baked Bread with rhassoul clay

Yuzu Maui (hot process)

Sexy Laundry Day

I have more planned, including goat milk, exfoliating oatmeal and coconut soap.

Some of the soaps in the shop are available on our Etsy shop: Product Body Labworks. That's my soap news for the day.

It Can Happen To You

It's OK To Be A Product Junkie
Product Body

The shop has been opened now for three months and we are still fairly slow, but we are now getting "regulars" and they come often. A lot of our online customers have become addicts and now I see it's happening right here in Jupiter. Women come in to the shop with a sense of urgency, walk over to the shelves nervously twiddling their fingers, looking for their "junkie" product in their favorite scent and when they find it, you can see their body change shape... there is a release of tension and nervous energy as they hold the jar tight.

I keep getting questions like, "this will remain a permanent scent in your line, right?" or "is this soap one of your signature ones? You will always have this available, right? I don't think I can live without it."

I am honored that people like the products and I am doubly thrilled that the soaps are such a big hit here. I can't make some of the soaps fast enough. I am getting soap requests and I am up for the challenge. In the meantime, spas are loving our Creme Fresh and saying their staff AND customers are flipping over it and the jars are flying off the shelves. Again, one of the spa owners (my customer) feels a bit like a drug dealer because people come to her frantic when the spa gets low on inventory. "When are you going to get more?.... I can't run out...."

It's better to be a Product junkie than any other kind of junkie, so yay to that.

Come to the shop if you are close. First sample is free...

A Tale Of A Sleepover

A story told by my mother about my daughter....

My sweet Nina Rose was 12 years old last week. She wanted to have a pajama party with her friends, and I volunteered my house (because it has a nice big heated pool and lots of rooms). At last Saturday came and at about 5:30 the Schmidt family and some 7 friends, (5 boys and 2 girls) arrived at my overly prepared house. They ate, and ate, and ate, and drank, and swam. That many kids sure make a lot of noise.

Well Nina was magnanimous and told her brother he could stay. So now there were 6 boys. They swam, played all kinds of games, ran around the neighborhood terrifying my poor friends, then settled down to several horror movies on the floor of my family room. Jo and I watched, felt proud and enjoyed our evening with them. The girls went to their room at about 3 a.m. and the boys slept in the family room and library.

The next day, no one wanted to go home, but after swimming and eating, and eating, and eating, they decided they needed to shower and hopefully brush their teeth. Nina and Marin went into my bathroom to shower, the boys into another. All was fine. But later that night after the whole crew went home, I went into the bathroom to shower. Half of my Crush on You was used by the girls, and most of my moisturizer was gone. Nina is the best endorsement for her mother's products, but a message to the granddaughter: KEEP YOUR GRUBBY HANDS OFF MY PRODUCTS. Love, Mom

Guess Mom needs a new tub of Crush, STAT!

A SEXY Give-Away!

You all have been patient. My blogging has been atrocious and I have real excuses, but that doesn't mean that it doesn't stink for you to show up and see the same old same old day in day out....booooooring!

Rebecca did show up and claim her awesome fluffy socks in the last give-away at the very last second. Her toes will be toasty in no time. The fact that all of you who tried for the socks and came up empty handed doesn't mean there is no more fun to be had. In fact, I am thinking you need a little Product Body goodness in your life to get you through this last bit of hellish Winter, yeah?

Vanna? Please tell our guests what is in store for them today.

Well, today we have the very popular, raved about Crush On You in Sexy Laundry Day as well as a beautifully wrapped handcrafted cold process soap in the same intoxicating scent. The two wonderful sexies will be wrapped in colorful tissue paper and delivered to the winner in a glossy gift box with a bonus secret surprise inside the package.

Sexy Laundry Day scent smells almost laundry fresh with jasmine, rose, ylang lang floral notes. It is, by far, our most popular scent since we introduced it.

All the contestants need to do is have one person comment and say you sent them here. I would love to build up readership and spread the word about the products, so let's make it fun!

Give-away winner will be chosen on Friday morning March 13th (oooo Friday the 13th!) must be a lucky day :O)
