Photo Shoot

Today I took a number of soap photos, of soaps that either needed a new picture or else were still waiting for one. Plus I took photos of a few other items. Here's a sampling of a few of today's shots....

One for fun....

Finally, Coconut Lime Verbena!

Lavender...a new look at an old favorite.

Soap on a String, that is soap in a luffa.

Sugar Scrubs are something Karen and I've had fun making over the past several months. And our customers at the farmers' market are enjoying them too.

New Products

Well, it has been a long time since our last post. But in spite of possible appearances, we have not been idle here at K & A Soaps. Throughout the winter, we continued making and passing soap on to our customers. Plus our soaps can now be found at an additional store, Treasure Nook.

Also over the winter, we tried our hand at something new--lip products! We made Natural (unflavored) and Peppermint from such natural and uncomplicated ingredients like coconut oil, safflower oil, beeswax, and Vitamin E, with peppermint oil being added to the latter. Taking care of your lips is important, especially when you are outdoors a lot. Personally, I am enjoying this treat for my lips. It feels so nice and smooth and helps to protect them against the elements. And with the handy little tubes they are in, they're perfect for carrying in my pocket when I'm working with produce in the field. But don't just listen to me. Try some out yourself and see what YOU think.

Last Saturday, May 21st, was the opening day at the Lititz Farmer's Market so we were very busy preparing for it. We are reworking our display for market and have employed one of our brothers to build shelves for our soaps. It can be hard to think of new ideas for how to make our table look different--and pretty!--but it's also a good opportunity to be creative. The Lord blessed us with a beautiful, sunny day which was especially welcomed after all the rain we have been receiving. It was great to see all the people that came out. What a fun morning! We had lots of soap out with some new kinds including Lavender, Lemongrass, & Mint, and Coconut Lime Verbena, and Lilac Mist which we gave a new look. (See below.) Our new Lavender, Lemongrass, and Mint made a big splash!
