For those who ordered or are ordering soaps, candles, incense, eye pillows, smudges etc, the new copy of the Letting Go and Healing Ritual book is almost done. I will send you the .pdf in the next few days. It is over 50 pp and I’m trying to pare it down somewhat but everything seems important! Every time I think I have all the important scents and rituals covered, I discover something else and have to check it out for possible inclusion in the book.
I must say that while Bananahead Bread is NOT an essential oil, it’s one of my favorite scents in both candles and soaps. Tonight I was burning 3 of them and a cinnamon (a very well known calming scent.) When life gives you bananaheads, make bananahead bread candles! My son almost ran off with all of them a few weeks ago so now I have to pat people down before they leave.
My test soaps and candles have all been doing wonderfully. The little bars of cappuccino hazelnut are at a full cure and I tested one last night and I liked it much more than I thought I would (I tend to not like brown colored soaps, but this is a frequent request – chocolate or mocha or something like that). It’s rich and creamy and lots of bubbles. I almost couldn’t stop washing my hands with it! That is what you want in a soap. I’m happy and am going to stop cutting into soaps so I have some product for the next show!
I am speaking (twice) at the New Life Expo in NYC on March 21-23 and will have a booth of soaps, candles, incense, eye pillows, smudge sticks, wafting feathers and fans, abalone shells, smudge pots, sugar scrubs, salt scrubs, lip balms and lip scrubs….everything aromatherapy for your heart, head and well-being!!! If you have a GPYB book and want to come by and say hello and have it signed, stop on by or I will have some for sale there.
After the show I hope to have the Sleepy Hollow Soaps, Smudges & Such website completed for a full e-commerce experience. I just have not had time for it (with my concussions and all.) I will also have new soaps ready to go then and the rest of the products will be photographed shortly and put up for sale.
I have been cutting back on my coaching clients and now am maximizing them at 10 (down from 15). I have a few clients who are going to every other week and one to once a month (I love when we’ve worked hard and people feel better!!!) so I do have a few spots available but will be starting with new clients on 3/15. If you want a consultation or interview to see if we’re a fit, let me know. The scheduler doesn’t work as well as I’d like in sending me email for those who have paid (I think it’s incompatible with Windows 8.1) so please send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
Hope to see you at the Expo!
