Oodles of New Products!

NewGood gravy boats! Have you seen the new section of our catalog? We have new products galore! Yesterday our team released 8 new products. Holy mackerel! Come check out some of our newest additions!

Alpine Fragrance Oil – This fresh and slightly sweet fragrance oil is prefect for the coming season. As leaves are starting to hint at a change in color and the air is getting crisp and cool, I have started dreaming of spice cakes and freshly made wreathes. I can’t wait to make a room spray with this fragrance. It is fantastic!

Lemon Herb Fragrance Oil – This fragrance smells fresh, clean and bright. It reminds me helping my grandmother clean. We would dust, vacuum and polish. She always made a game out of it and at the end of the day, I thought I would burst with pride for all that we had accomplished. The sinks were white, the wood glowed and the doorknobs nearly sparkled.  I loved how gorgeous the house looked and how nice it smelled for weeks after.

Bubble Gum Flavor Oil – I adore bubble gum. It was one of my favorite treats as a kid. I remember those incredible gum ball vendors where they would race along a track and do loops until they were finally released at the bottom. It was so exciting and fun. I remember squealing with delight as I watched the gum ball run its course! Bubble Gum Flavor Oil was all the awesome flavor and plenty of excitement too!

Cheesecake Flavor Oil – Cheesecake. I love cheesecake but it turns out to be one of those rare, special occasion treats for me. It makes the opportunities for me to have it all that more memorable. Try Cheesecake Flavor with our Strawberry Swirl for strawberries and cheesecake. Or mix it with lime for a Key Lime Pie! There are plenty of options.

Red Licorice Flavor Oil – One of my first memorable interactions with red licorice was at a small theater. Regrettably I don’t remember the play but I remember the fascination with the costumes, the lights, and the music. During the intermission, my father went to the counter to get us all a treat. One of the things he brought back was red licorice. So for the rest of the play, I sat with my feet dangling above the floor, a piece of red licorice in my sweaty hand as I watched the magic unfold around me. Since then, I have loved red licorice and plays alike. This flavor oil reminds me of way back when that red rope was clutched in my little hand.

Lavender Buds, USA Grown – I love lavender and keep a little sachet of it in my closet. So when our new lavender buds arrived, I was astonished by the beautiful color and alluring aroma. These little purple and green buds were releasing an incredible and delightful amount of scent. I can still smell these beauties sitting at my desk! Amazing.

Green Chile Vinegar – The latest addition to our free gifts and teas program. This is the perfect blend on sweet, spicy and sour. It is perfect for everyone from kids to adults. I am partial to using when making taco salads. It is truly yummy! Because it is part of our Free Gifts and Teas program, you can even get a bottle for free! How awesome is that?

Sweetie Pie Fragrance Oil – This fragrance is chock full of sweet, sun ripened berries. It also has hints of exotic, tropical fruits that add mystic and mystery. Whatever it is, it certainly is yummy! I can’t wait to make a lotion and matching body splash with this scent.

Check out the new products section of our webpage. We have some awesome new products and goodies you don’t want to miss. These are just a few of the many items that are currently featured on our website. I hope to feature a few of these individually in the next few weeks. Plan on some delightful samples being sent to the shipping department. Enjoy!

New Lemoncello Fragrance Oil!

LemoncelloI have always dreamed of traveling to the Mediterranean and visiting Greece and Italy. While I still haven’t arranged a trip to go there, our new Lemoncello Fragrance Oil is the next best thing!

Lemoncello is an Italian liqueur that is made by infusing lemon zest into distilled grain alcohol.  The zest is later strained off and the liqueur is mixed with simple syrup. This gives the alcohol a slight cloudy appearance. Lemoncello is popular because of the fresh, lemony flavor without being tart or bitter.

Once our Research and Development Department announced that we would have a Lemoncello Fragrance Oil, I did a lot of reading about it. There are some amazing articles out there ranging from the origin and history of lemoncello to how to make it yourself. Did you know that while in the U.S. Lemoncello is often used as a flavoring agent in cocktails, in Italy it is served in small chilled glasses after a meal? This is also known as a digestivo. How cool is that?

When I got my first sniff of our Lemoncello Fragrance Oil, I was struck by how smooth and fresh it smelled. There are no bitter or sour notes that I normally associate with things like lemonade. It smelled more like a citrus grove or a box of freshly picked lemons. Wow! I am in love.

I have already made my Silky Smooth Hair Detangler and a batch of soap using the Lemoncello Fragrance Oil. I can’t wait to make lotions, bath salts and room sprays. Yummy!

Memorial Day is Here!

Memorial Day is a great day where we celebrate and honor the men and women who have and who continue to make great sacrifices for our country. From everything to parades, gravesite decorations, flags and backyard BBQ’s we each have our own way of honoring these great people. We hope that you have a fantastic Memorial Day weekend. 

So what does Memorial Day mean for your orders? Both the United States Post Office and UPS are closed during the holiday. We will also be closed so that our staff members can spend this important time with their families. If you have an order you need before or directly after the holiday, make sure to place your orders quickly. Time is running out before the break. We will resume shipping orders on Tuesday, so if your order is placed during the weekend, it will not be shipped until Tuesday. We hope this can help you plan for this hiccup in the calendar.

From our family here at MMS to yours, we would like to wish you all a happy and safe Memorial Day.

 
Taylor

 

P.S. If you are looking for some great recipes for a weekend BBQ, I want to share some of my favorites! If you are looking for a scrumptious dip for chips and veggies I recommend the simple and addicting Artichoke and Spinach Dip. You can also consider making Baked Beans from scratch or our disappearing Bowtie Pasta Salad that is a staff favorite for every potluck lunch. You can even stick with a tried and true Lemonade that is super easy and fresh!
