Starting from scratch - kind of.....

It's been a long few weeks looking over reports and crunching numbers, but when you run a business, these things must be done in order to determine the things that are working for your business and the things that are not. 

Originally I was going to shrink my fragrance list down, but after some serious calculator work, I've decided to shrink my product line down!  Now I know some of you will be heart-broken to see some products go but I just can't afford to keep them in stock when they are not selling.  The flip-side to this, if you want to call it that, is that I don't enjoy making these products as much as I do the others in my line.  This will give me more time to focus my attention and creativity on the other products in my line and make them even better.

So now that I've had some time to reflect and get some perspective, I'll be discontinueing the following products:

Whipped Soap in a Jar
Foaming Body Polish
Vegan Deodorant Sticks
Silky Smooth Body Lotion

These items will be listed in the Etsy shop tomorrow afternoon at 40% Off - and the word "Discontinued" will be in the title.  So, you can search my shop using that word and all the listing will appear.  Or you can view the items in their respective sections and if any of them are not marked down, just let me know and I will fix them. 

Feel free to contact me if you would like a different scent then what I have listed or if you would like to order more then 1 of anything.  I will offer the 40% discount to ALL retail orders, including reserved listing and custom orders. 

The Foaming Body Polish will soon be replaced with an emulsified sugar scrub that I have yet to name and is the final stages of formulation and testing.  Once it's ready, I'll  let you all know and we'll have an introduction offer!
