The latest in soap news!February 2012
Happy Almost Spring everyone! Winter is trying to take one more kick at us but we will prevail.
It seems time has its own agenda and has left me in its dust. February: Healthy Heart month, Valentine's Day and the month I start looking at my gardening books for a glimpse of spring. I just emailed Margie's Greenhouse to order my little cucumber plants.
I have started spring cleaning early. Just so you are aware I have an intense dislike of housework. I like it clean so I do it, but I am not one of those people who loves to clean. In order to keep my mind on the task at hand I play games with myself like Fung Shei Bagua Bingo—here is the link if you would like to play it too.
The other thing we have come up with to make cleaning more interesting is Virginia's Soap All Purpose Cleaner. It is biodegradable, it is plant based and it is unscented. It cleans really well, invite your children clean with it (as a matter of fact I encourage it) they can do the low parts and you can do the high parts. It is unscented but feel free to add your own essential oils or fragrance oils to it as you like.
Another ingenious product we have in our line is Potty Spray. The Potty Spray is great in its travel size. Use it for baby change tables, suspect public toilets (just spray and wipe with toilet paper), at home for potties, target practice gone awry. Don't stop there keep one in the bathroom for those quick clean ups, in the baby's room for the change table and to wipe down toys and crib rails, in the kitchen for refreshing of counters, stove tops, appliance fronts, etc. At the cottage or camping it is a first-rate cleaner that you can use to do your dishes (although there are no suds). It is scented with lemon, tea tree, lavender and lemongrass essential oils.
What's that? You need a proper bath to unwind and take care of those sore muscles after all that cleaning. We've got you covered! We have 2 wonderful bath oils for you in two different scents. Beautiful carrier oils like apricot kernel, buriti, carrot tissue, and evening primrose to name a few; blended with pure essential oils of sweet birch, juniper berry, rose geranium and more for our uplifting Refresh blend. In the Sunrise blend we use the same fabulous carrier oils and organic sweet orange and organic lavender essential oils to embrace you as you bathe.
Call or email to place an order or stop by any of our upcoming venues. We are in Beausejour, Manitoba this Friday & Saturday, February 24 & 25. See us in Selkirk for St. Patrick's Day, March 17 or catch us at the Grant Park Shopping Mall for the full week before Mother's Day, May 7 to May 13.

Be good everyone and if you can't be good, be clean! Thanks for all the positive feedback you keep sending, we love it and we are glad to be heading in the right direction.
