Snowed In!

We got a snowstorm last night that left us with drifts a couple feet tall in the backyard. Our poor little dog just looked at the wall of snow at the door like, "Now what am I supposed to do?" :)

So since I'm stuck inside today I might as well enjoy it! I put together this lovely selection of picks from the Helping Others Street Team (HOST) and the EtsyNJ team. Enjoy!

Free Lotion With Every Order!

I now make cream lotions, and I know my customers will love them! This all natural cream lotion is made from a high quality, paraben free and vegan lotion base. It works in quickly, leaving your skin feeling silky smooth and not sticky or greasy. You don’t need to re-apply very often, and a little goes a long way!

Here are the scents I currently have available.

  • Unscented
  • Lavender (made with Lavender essential oil)
  • Chamomile Neroli (made with essential oil blend)
  • Vanilla (made with fragrance oil)
  • White Tea & Ginger (made with fragrance oil)

And more scents are on the way! Custom orders are always welcome.

For more information and a complete list of ingredients, you’re welcome to check out the listings in my shop in the Lotions and Lip Balm section.

Free Samples!

For the entire month of February, I will include a free lotion sample with every order. I know once people try this they’ll love it! As well as a promotion for these lotions, this is also a thank you gift to my wonderful customers. This free offer applies to every order – no minimum!

The samples are ½ oz each and come in bottles for easy application. These bottles are also a perfect size to keep in your purse or use when traveling.

No special code is required to receive your sample. However, when placing your order, please let me know if there is a scent of lotion you really would love to try. Or if you would prefer unscented, just let me know. You can tell me by just putting your preference in the message to seller box at checkout. If you don’t mention a preference, I’ll pick a random scent for you.

My family and I are in love with this lotion! I hope you love it too! :)
