The Cure For Black Friday


What will be cured on Black Friday?

Coconut Milk Shea Butter Raspberry Linzer Cookie Soap. that's what!

That's a mouthful, huh? Yes, Black Friday is the curing date for these honeys. These are my new version of Raspberry Linzer Cookie soaps.

I definitely like them better than the first batch I made. But then, we all have to learn how soap behaves with their fragrance oils first before we can work out their relationship.

first batch

The newest version also has coconut milk for a little added decadence. I am glad they are still curing. I have my sweet babies for another week or so. I can still sneak out of bed and smell them when everyone is sleeping. Shhh.

smells like the real deal

Also...

Our Limited Edition Pumpkin Brulee Soap (A yummy fragrance from one of our suppliers has gone out of business and the oils will never be carried here again.) Get this while you can starting on Black Friday. It smells wonderful, but there is a limited supply.

These bars are fatter and heavier than usual. Keep that in mind. As stock runs out of our current inventory, you will see we will be replacing it with larger bars weighing in at 5 + oz and 1 1/8 inches wide instead of one inch wide. Doesn't sound like much of a difference, but when you look and the difference in a bar of soap, it is dreamy bigger. (Brad built me a log splitter and soap cutter. Yes!) Prices will rise, but not by much.

We have lowered some prices this year and lowered shipping on our Product Body website even though shipping has gone up and wild. Have you noticed how crazy shipping has become? Ouch! I wish we could offer free shipping all the time for you guys :(

We have great new soapie things on the horizon, but I will wait until they come to fruition before mentioning them. I had quite a mess of a soap week this past 10 days or so. Lost about 100 bars worth of product. ((head bows in shame)) I think it is due to growing pains... increasing soap production and not getting with the program fast enough.

I'll take that. Like I said to my friend, Lysa... That's a luxury problem I can't really complain about.

Absolutely beautiful! In fact, I'm gonna include the Pumpkin Brulee in some Thanksgiving soap porn in a couple days. Right around Black Frday, in fact. :-)
