Mid-Summer Ramblings

Summer seems to be flying by. It is hard to believe, but yesterday I saw a "Back to School" promotion at a locale store already! Don't let it slip by too quickly however. The August, "end of summer" days are the perfect time to get out there and squeeze out the last bit of fun out of the summer!


Yesterday it was actually so cool, overcast, and breezy outside (really absolutely strange for mid summer in Pennsylvania!) that it has me thinking about the fall. Cool breezy days, warm sweaters, hot treats from the oven...I used the inspiration to finish up the work on the new fall scents. I'm just bursting to announce the new scents, but I'm going to keep them a secret a little longer to give me time to do the proper testing and market research for them. I am anticipating changing the scent lineup over to the fall and winter scents sometime the end of September. Stay tuned for hints and insider news here on the blog when we get closer to that time. Ok, I will just say one thing (since I've already been getting emails begging for it), Marshmallow Gingerbread is definitely coming back this year! So don't fear, you'll be able to get your fill of warm, gooey, spicy goodness in September!


There is also some new products in the works, some of which will be released very soon! I've got a Rosemary Rhassoul Zoft to match the ever popular Rosemary Rhassoul Sudz that is just about ready to release. There will also be a Botanical Shine Sudz in the works, to go with the Zoft of the same name that will be ready soon.


I have a gorgeous new perfume scent that I just finished formulation on. I've been working on the concept for this scent for almost five months now. It is light, it is sugary, it is just beautiful! Keep an eye out for the August email newsletter for more details.

Also, be on the lookout for the return of our All Natural Peppermint Shea Butter Lip Balm!

Ok, ok....there is more in the works that I would love to tell you about but the rest is just a little too far from completion for me to go spilling my guts right now.

So get out there, go to the beach, take a hike in the woods, or just find a shady spot under a big maple tree and enjoy the rest of your summer!

I'm glad August holds promise for someone else too....it seemed to be slipping away. Thanks.

August has always been a favorite month of mine, I guess because we always used to vacation at the beach that time of year when I was little. August does seem to get rushed by now as everyone prepares for fall and back to school. Sometimes you just need to make the time to take a little break for yourself!

I'm excited to see the new fall scents, and I absolutely must know when you are going to resume making the salt scrub bars.

I'm really going to try and have them available when the Fall and Winter scents release (sometime the end of September). Ultimately it will depend on our weather here in Pennsylvania and how quickly it cools down.
Thanks Jammies!
