Freebie Friday! (Plus New Products Review)

Can you believe that it is not only the last day of November but also Friday? Before I move on the giveaway of the week, I would like to share our newest products with you. We have added LOTS over the past three weeks and they all are so exciting! If you haven’t checked out the New Products section of the catalog recently, then you should.

NEW FRAGRANCES!

French Lime Blossom Fragrance: This fragrance is a wonderful floral that brings the idea of classic elegance and timeless appeal to mind. Fresh and light, this floral brushes past you on a soft breeze that whispers “Spring” in your ear. Touches of violet and wild lily mix with the linden blossom giving this fragrance that bit of grace that makes us think of a European garden with linden trees and perhaps … a kiss of romance.

Rhubarb and Sugar Cane Fragrance: When I was a teen, my parents picked up a DVD of some Petticoat Junction episodes. My sister and I enjoyed that DVD, but our favorite episode was “Kate’s Recipe for Hot Rhubarb.” This fragrance may not have much common with Petticoat Junction, but it is a yummy scent that is fun and energizing! A delicious concoction of grapefruit, pomelo and pomegranate topped off with black currants and a floral spray of white lily and pink roses. Perfect to give your day a energetic start. Can you hear that morning wake up call?

Vanilla Yogurt Fragrance Oil: Don’t think of your morning breakfast before smelling this fragrance! Vanilla and cream are the focus of the fragrance but there is tang twisted with a hint of citrus and caramel and the whole medley is topped off with a little bit of sugar like sweetness.

NEW FLAVOR!

Chocolate Bacon Flavor Wax: The popularity of chocolate and bacon flavored foods and treats hasn’t faded away. So many of our customers have requested this flavor for lip balms and I’m excited to say that it is back in the catalog due to popular demand! Smokey, salty bacon with a delicious chocolate. Can you just say yum? Watch this flavor fly off your shelves!

NEW BOTANICALS!

Alkanet Root Powder: A botanical that is often used to color soaps a deep red color. Color can vary from blue gray to dark purple depending on the amount of color. CHALLENGE! Submit a photograph of your soaps using this botanical as a colorant and we will send you a goody box!

Annatto Seed Powder: Another botanical used to color soaps, it can give your soaps a color range of yellow to orange. CHALLENGE! Submit a photograph of your soaps using this botanical as a colorant and we will send you a goody box!

Hibiscus Flowers: Recently, I’ve made a few blogs posts with Hibiscus Flowers. We now carry these wonderful blossoms so you can make your own tub teas, masks, and foot scrubs!

Madder Root Powder: History notes that Madder Root has been used a source of a red dye for cloth. Now we carry this botanical to give your soaps a red brown or warm red color! CHALLENGE! Submit a photograph of your soaps using this botanical as a colorant and we will send you a goody box!

Orange Peel Powder: Want to add a little extra exfoliation to your soap? Try Orange Peel Powder and I think you will find your kitchen will have a new favorite soap! Where else would you use our luscious Orange Peel Powder?

Safflower Powder Don’t think of cookin and Safflower Oil! Think soap colored with Safflower Powder! CHALLENGE! Submit a photograph of your soaps using this botanical as a colorant and we will send you a goody box!

Spirulina Powder: Spirulina is a powder from a blue green algae that will add a green and brown color to your soaps. I think soaps made with this would be pretty and easily play into an ocean theme. CHALLENGE! Submit a photograph of your soaps using this botanical as a colorant and we will send you a goody box!

NEW GIFTS & TEAS!

We have added a collection of chocolate bars from Vosges Haut Chocolat! (Can I actually get away with text speak for once?) OMG! These are to die for! They are so yummy! Yes, I am truly this excited and I did break the grammar rules regarding exclamation points. I feel that those just help get my point across!

The Barcelona Exotic Chocolate Bar is a deep milk chocolate bar with Fleur de Sel Grey sea salt and roasted almonds. Guided tasting notes accompany this bar of bliss.

The Blood Orange Caramel Chocolate Bar is 70& cacao dark chocolate bar filled with a soft burnt sugar caramel and mixed with sweet blood orange puree juxtaposed to bitter aperitif Campari® and tart hibiscus that will captivate your palate.

The Caramel Toffee Exotic Chocolate Bar is made with a deep milk chocolate with pieces of buttery toffee, walnuts and pecans.

The Cherry Rooibos Exotic Chocolate Bar is a deep milk chocolate flavored with rooibos tea and then Michigan cherries are a soft contrast that makes this bar yummy!

I just talked about chocolate and bacon! Well, you can eat it too! We have Mo’s Bacon Milk Exotic Chocolate Bar and Mo’s Dark Chocolate Bacon Bar. Both chocolate bars contain sulfite-free hickory smoked bacon and alderwood smoked salt. The milk chocolate bar is 45% cacao and the dark chocolate bar is 62% cacao!

The Naga Exotic Chocolate Bar is a deep milk chocolate bar flavored with the spices that make the sweet curries in Northeast India and then coconut is added to balance this world traveling chocolate bar.

The Organic Peanut Butter Bonbon Chocolate Bar is a deep milk chocolate bar filled with peanut butter and then flavored with pink Himalayan salt and Maldon salt. Yum!

The Pink Himalayan Crystal Salt Caramel Bar is a dark chocolate bar filled with a burnt sugar caramel that has been salted with Pink Himalayan salt. A complimentary bar all around!

TheRed Fire Caramel Exotic Chocolate is a dark chocolate bar filled with a burnt sugar caramel that had been poured over dried chilies. Smooth, spiced and oozing, this chocolate bar speaks of the very origins of chocolate!

Brave Orange Caramel Rooibos Tea: This herb tea has the bright freshness of sweet oranges atop the rich, velvety flavor of caramel. A smooth base of caffeine-free, healthy rooibos adds body and can stand up to a splash of milk or be cooled and served over ice. This spirited cup is a treat for any journey.

Madagascar Vanilla Extract: Vanilla is a SERIOUS staple in my kitchen as a baker. I don’t know what I would do without it! Now you can also add vanilla to your orders as a freebie or as a purchased item!

Whew! I’m done reviewing all the new products! (For now. Just wait, the R&D team will come up with more items to be released!)


Now, onto this week’s giveaway! This week we are giving away some fun items! This week’s goodies include 2 lbs of Extra Large Size Salt, 1 fl oz of Vanilla Yogurt Fragrance, and a partial bottle of Posh Petals Fragrance!

The winner for this week is … Wanda! Congratulations! I will be sending you an e-mail for your mailing address. Your treasure box will be sent out on Monday!
