Herbal Infusion Offerings

ABM_1388544381I spent New Year’s Day refreshing my selection of olive oil herbal infusions. Below, you’ll find a list of available infusions that are waiting to be used in a salve, lotion, body butter, hair & body oil or whatever else one can dream up. (On board are hops, rosehips and lemon balm…I’m just waiting on some containers to put them in.) They’re ready to use right now and available through this listing as a salve. If a salve isn’t your cup of tea, just ask me to use them in another product; I’m flexible. To reflect these new improvements, the ingredients in my essential oil conditioner will now include chamomile, nettle and rosemary infused olive oils because they’re fantastic for hair (I’m also using nettle extract too!). So let me know if you have any questions.

Life & Times

Among the rest of the animals

You can find me grazing about with the rest of the creatures this weekend at the Saugerties Farmers Markets’ annual Farm Animal Day. Last year was nuts (in a good way) so don’t miss it! I will have my regular sales going on (except I’m almost out of my $2.00 One Delicious Buzz soaps) plus I will be selling a whole slew of new lotions, butters, scrubs, liquid soaps, and body oils.

The sales are as follows: $1.00 soapy sticks, $2.00 bars of One Delicious Buzz and Benjamin Button, $4.00 glycerin soaps and $5.00 salves.

Oh, and I’d be a jerk if I didn’t mention that another wonderful vendor bought me a beautiful bouquet of flowers from Shoving Leopard. This was week #2 of having fresh flowers given to me. I love the people I vend with. I just can’t say that enough. Here’s hoping for week #3 of fresh flowers…
