I know it is only the beginning of March, but I have an exciting announcement for Mother’s Day, which is May 10th. Now through April 20, we will be making items to put into a Mother’s Day personal care gift basket. Our blog on the 20th and 21st of April will focus on putting together a gift basket. The drawing for the 5 baskets I am making will be held on April 23rd.
How to win a gift basket:
To enter this drawing, simply comment on the blog between March 1st and April 22nd. Each comment will be assigned a number in the order they are received. On April 23rd, we will draw 5 different numbers out of a bucket. If your number is chosen, you will win!
On April 24th, we will ship the gift baskets out of our facility to get to you with time for Mother’s Day. Only one basket per winner, but that doesn’t mean you can only post one comment!
I’m so excited that I could scream, and I’m hosting this drawing!
Anyway, remember, commenting enters you into the drawing. You don’t need to do anything else. We send a free gift basket to you AND we pick up the shipping too! Considering the items that are in this gift basket, I must restrict entries to the US and Canada. If you are outside these countries, you can still comment. I’ll find something else to send to winners outside the US and Canada.
Good luck to all participants!
Wow! That really sounds great! I can’t wait to see what you guys cook up!
There is nothing sweeter than making homemade/handmade products for your Mom.
How exciting! Can’t wait to see the baskets!!!
Very exciting! I can’t wait to see them!
This is a great idea!! Can’t wait!
What a cool idea…. I can’t wait to see what all you are putting in the baskets. It is always so much fun to create a gift basket, that has all handmade products in it.
I can’t wait to see the baskets and I love this company!!!!!!
Thanks so much for the advance notice. I’ve just discovered that my paper crafts group is mad about the soap I gave them for the holidays. How cool to
Oops, I somehow posted incorrectly. Here’s the rest: how cool to share these upcoming goodies with the paper crafts I have planned for Mother’s Day..
That’s ok, sometimes we all make mistakes! It sounds like you are going to have some fun!
I am so excited I found your blog. I am going to check back regularly for fun ideas. I am also really excited about the mother’s day gift basket, what a great idea!
I have ordered several times from MMS in the past and I have read this blog from time to time gathering ideas and information.
Thanks for running the contest — it was the encouragement I needed to finally register!
I have some cherry kernel oil that I’m not sure how much to use in my soap. Is it used just for supperfatting or more as a main oil? What % would you try? Thanks
This would be used as a extra type of oil, similar to shea butter or other types. Let me check on a typical saponfication value for this oil and I will get it added to the Lye Calculator.
Remember, always calculate your lye before making soap. Include all the oils you wish to use. Leave the desired amount of excess fat.
Never just add oils as a whim, always know the amount of excess fat you are leaving in a batch. The art of superfatting is very dependent on the science of soap making.
THANK U SO MUCH FOR ALL THE INFORMATION SHARED ON THIS SITE! I LOVE GETTING MY ORDERS WITH A GIFT TUCKED INSIDE. MY 2 DAUGHTERS BEG TO BE THE ONE TO TRY IT OUT AND THEN BUG ME TO FIND THE RECIPE!
I have to say that sounds like our staff here when I make new samples!
I logged in today to use the lye calculator and what a surprise! I’m a mommy, lol. Thanks for the site.
I’m learning about how honey reacts in my soap. Will have to wait to unmold and see if I’ll be rebatching.
