Last Saturday, I was approached by a local store about my bubble bath. After a meeting later in the week, I came up with something fun... bubble bon bons. They are single use semi-solid bubble bath nuggets that are wrapped like candy. These bon bons bubble profusely and smell wonderful. I can't wait until tonight for my Sunday evening ritual Bath. Yes, I capitalized "Bath" intentionally. While I take showers the rest of the week, my Sunday Bath is less about getting clean and more about relaxing, unwinding and taking some time for myself. For now, I am offering the bonbons in 3 scents (Lust, Innocence, and Lavender Vanilla - feel I sound like a broken record) and unscented. I think I will offer these up individually and as a multi-pack.
I should make a side note about my essential oil blend "Lust". It also shows up as aphrodite. I was trying to make the name a bit more approachable, but when I mentioned the original name for the blend (it first appeared in my aromatherapy pulse point oils), she loved it. So, for the bubble bon bons, "lust" is what it is called.
The same shop owner also asked about my massage oils. After some discussion, we decided that an oil that had a slightly different form than the traditional would be usedful. So I now have the same wonderful oil that I currently offer, but thickened into a sort of solid gel. It melts easily on contact, but is a lot less messy to use. Since my massage oils were formulated originally for a massage therapist for use in her business, it has great feel and lots of working time. It is also washes out of fabric easily. I have decided to call it a massage balm. It is offered unscented or 3 wonderful essential oil blends... Lust, Innocence, and Lavender Vanilla.
I like to walk the line between the creative and the analytical. Making soaps and other body care products allows me to explore both sides. I am always in awe of bees and what gifts they provide for us. There are many things to be learned....
