I am so lucky to have such a supportive Mom!

I am so lucky to have one of my biggest supporters in my life………..My Mom! Each Winter Season she travels down to Surprise, Arizona with my Dad in their RV “Home-on-Wheels” to stay in the Warmth of the Sun while mostly everyone else braves the cold! On Fridays and some Saturdays too she takes my products to the Vendor Markets to help sell my products and get the word out about my business.  She went to college to obtain her Bachelors Degree in Marketing  & Communication…….So you can only imagine what a great job she does!  This is a picture of the table from the latest Vendor Market. She called me yesterday and not realizing she hit call before a customer came up, I got to hear a little of her sales techniques at work!
“Yes, did you know that this clay mask is filled with Glaciomarine Clay. You can only find this in two places on earth, and the Northwest is one of them. My daughter has researched this particular variety of clay. It is filled with the best minerals for detoxifying your skin. She makes all of these items handmade. She has been working on her business for over 3 years so she can be a stay-at-home-Mom. Here’s a picture of her…..” 
I then called her and told her about the “eaves dropping” message I got and how neat it was to hear her in action. Plus to tell her how grateful I was that she was working so hard for me getting the word out selling my products.
I love you Mom!

Winter knocking on Fall’s Door!

So I can hear Winter knocking on Fall’s door this past week! BRRRR! The fire in the woodstove keeps us toasty warm on these cold mornings… I have been preparing for the holiday season getting all of my new soaps wrapped and finishing up my pumpkin roasting. Nothing goes to waste on the farm here! I roast them and then puree the insides not only for tasty baked goods throughout the year, but also to be used in my Pumpkin Vanilla Spice Soap! Only Organic ingredients go in my soaps, so I stick true to my advertising! I only have a few bars left of the Pumpkin Vanilla Spice until the New Year when I will be making my new batches!

New product for those who love Mint!!

   Yesterday was a cold and rainy day. A perfect day to stay inside and get to making some new products for my shop! I now present to you my newest soap and item……. Honey Bee Mint Soap and Lavender Mint Body Powder.

   The Honey Bee Mint Soap is a Honey Bee Holistics exclusive! Made with Organic Olive Oil, Organic Coconut oil, Palm Oil, Organic Fair Trade Shea Butter infused with dried and ground Organic Peppermint & Spearmint (grown here on our Farm) with Organic Peppermint & Organic Spearmint Essential oil mixed throughout!! It is then topped off with a light sprinkling of the same dried Peppermint & Spearmint for a minty “zing”! The health benefits of Organic Peppermint Essential oil include its ability to treat indigestion, respiratory problems, headache, nausea, fever, stomach and bowel spasms and pain. It is also purifying and stimulating to the conscience mind.

  Next we have the Lavender Mint Body Powder. It is made of Tapioca Starch, Corn Starch, Baking Soda, and Ground dried Organic Lavender grown here on our Farm.  It is a safe alternative to the commercial powders that are available because it does not contain harmful TALC! Talc is a form of asbestos which is harmful in its own right, but is carminitive that is thought to lead to cancerous mutations in the body. The Lavender soothes the skin, healing it as well, while the Mint is antiseptic and cooling keeping your skin from being over heated. The Tapioca and Corn Starch work to wick away moisture from your body while the baking soda serves as a mild deodorant keeping bacteria smells at bay. It is not only good for your body as a whole, but works great as a foot powder before putting on your socks, especially if you have more than normal sweaty feet!
  My next product revealing will be this weekend with my Honey Shea Body Mousse!!! An ultra moisturizing mousse like cream that will protect your skin from moisture loss this winter!

Welcome to the Start of the holiday season!

Today started out like the others so far this month….. Cool, crisp, with a little dampness in the air. It is the middle of the Autumn season and we are gearing up for a prosperous holiday season! I made 5 new batches of soap 2 weeks ago, that includes our new Limited Edition Holiday soaps…… Cinnamon Roll & Sugar Cookie!!

  Cinnamon Roll smells so yummy you want to eat it!! My husband has commented it looks like coffee cake. It is my cold-processed soap that has Organic Cinnamon Cassia essential oil blended throughout, as well as fresh ground Organic Cinnamon sticks swirled through it, and then sprinkled with ground Organic Cinnamon with Organic Raw Sugar! It is a treat for the senses and the body. Organic Cinnamon Cassia essential oil & fresh ground Organic Cinnamon promotes circulation and warmth for the chilly Fall & Winter days, while the luxurious Organic oils used to make the soap help to moisturize your skin!

  Sugar cookie smells like sugar cookie dough! Its scent comes from Organic Vanilla Essential oil & Real Organic Tahitian Vanilla Bean flecks. The Organic Tahitian Vanilla Beans were hand scraped from their pods and added to the moisturizing soap that contains Organic Fair Trade Shea Butter. These flecks impart a very light vanilla fragrance that is not overpowering at all. Each bar is topped with Organic Raw Sugar swirled throughout the tops!
  Also by popular demand, Honey Bee Holistics is now featuring “Honey Bee Mint” soap in our regular soap line. This soap features the two favorite herbs grown on site: Organic Peppermint & Organic Spearmint! This soap has been infused with Organic essential oils of Peppermint & Spearmint along with some of our Organic dried ground herbs incorporated throughout. It has a sharp “zing” to it that would be great for awakening the senses on any dreary day!
All new batches are available for sale after their curing has completed on Friday Nov.12th!
