Scents, Scents, & Dare We Dare...More Scents

This week, we've added a new line of handmade (in Lancaster County, PA) herbal soaps to the shop. To get a feel of what scents customers like, we are starting with the following:
  • Lavender Shea (made with shea butter, a calming, relaxing, soothing scent of fresh lavender)
  • Gardener's Delight (lifts mood & dirt for soft skin...spicy scent men will love as well as ladies & the pumice will help scrub away a day's work quite pleasantly!)
  • Cocoa Butter (a mild scent that moisturizes & calms dry skin with hints of ylang-ylang, patchouli, & lavender)
  • Sweet Orange (an invigoratingly sweet tangerine scent sure to be a favorite)
  • Orange Blossom & Honey (mild scent to nourish & refresh)
  • Green Tea & Honey (renews & repairs skin ...anitbacterial & antioxidant)

The soaps will sell for $5.25 in the shop. We also will have some cute gift/guest soaps in lavender, cherry, & peach as well as chocolate lover's bars.

We've also introduced a new line of handmade candles made in Lancaster County. These are clean-burning, eco-friendly, with lead-free wicks. They come in glass "canning-style" jars with metal lids. Even as appealing as their scents, is their price in the shop: $6.50!!! Again, we're sampling scents to start out, and plan to add more as we get a feel for what customers like best. Right now, the basic scents are:

  • Oatmeal-Raisin Cookie
  • Mulberry
  • Pears 'N Berries
  • Sweet Orange

The seasonal scents for fall include:

  • Harvest Spice (a rich cinnamon-scented red candle)
  • Pumpkin Spice
  • Spicy Mulled Cider

And, for the coming winter seasonal scents, we have:

  • Peppermint (an all-white candle smelling just like a candy cane)
  • Christmas Berry (a cheery red candle with a cranberry scent)

If all these scents aren't enough, our next shipment of our private label woodwick candles will be arriving by this coming Friday (just in time for the kick-off of the Lancaster County's Best Kept Secrets' Tour!!) These include the following yummy blends:

  • Sweet Potato Pie/Pumpkin Cider
  • Mocha Java/Caramel Kiss (our all-season favorite!!)
