Posts Tagged ‘Gaot Milk Soap’

Today I decided to not publish my regular product Monday post.  Instead, I am going to talk about losing the mojo, gumption, drive, and then regaining it.

For 44 years I have been all about soap, fragrance, and natural skin care products.  Never have I been disinterested.

Recently I couldn’t find the desire to work in my shop.  Granted, I have a lot of kids on the ground.  I have been tired.  I am pushed for time.  Sleep and finding time to take care of myself was a struggle. 

But the tiny bursts of time I did have to do my craft, work on the business, were not filled with a desire to do it.

Today, as I prepped for a speech I am doing tonight, as I filled a basket full of sample soaps for the business-women in the audience, I thought of a soap that I wanted to make.  The desire was immense.  I made a batch of Rose Cedarwood goat milk soap.  It smelled terrific to me, and it felt good to be creative.

What I realized is, sometimes when we are tired, when we feel backed into a corner, when we feel we have lost sight of our goals in life, what it takes is a bit of quiet time, a short break, and the “go-juice” returns with newness on its wings.

Thank goodness!

I do have plans to add new products to Annie’s Goat Hill Handcrafted Soaps.  I also have plans for a more natural life in my own household.  I will explain all of that in a blog post later this week.

Until then, enjoy your life! Don’t beat yourself up when you feel you hit a dead-end road.  Creativity will come back.

Annie's Goat Milk Soap Love Basket

One of my goals in 2010 is to offer more gift sets, new products, and to bring in the candles that I have been talking about for much too long!  I am excited to begin meeting goals with the announcement of a new gift basket!

The Annie’s Goat Milk Soap Love Basket is filled with luscious items that can help transform a bath into a spa experience!  The products are scented with the beautiful Annie’s Love fragrance (similar to Victoria’s Secret Love Spell). 

Included in the gift basket:

  • sugar scrub (with sweet almond oil, vitamin e and evening primrose oil) 6 oz.
  • fizzy mineral salts for the bath 10 oz.
  • goat milk lotion 4 oz.
  • goat milk soap approx 4.25 oz.
  • soy votive candle

Have you ever used a sugar scrub? A sugar scrub is wonderful for the rough areas of the body that suffer from the elements of winter.  I use it anywhere on the body that needs a boost from gentle exfoliation (to slough off dry dead skin).  I occasionally use the scrub on my face.  But, I recommend going very gentle with a facial scrub.  Facial skin is much more delicate than skin further down the body!

A gift card is available, as well as drop-shipment for gift sending.  The gift set will be shrink wrapped, ensuring the basket arrives in excellent condition.

The basket itself is very attractive, with a removable liner.

The Annie’s Goat Milk Love Basket is now listed in my goat milk soap store.

Happy (early) Valentine’s Day!
