The short answer is, yes you should. But it's so expensive and hard to find! Yes it does cost more than regular soap and it can be tricky to find a trusted brand that you like, however, the benefits are worth it. Try to think of soap like you would your favorite meats at the grocery store. You and I both know that if we only buy sausage, bacon, and processed canned meat that our heart and blood pressure would eventually have a melt down. So what do we do? We try our best to split the difference and get that healthy and lean chicken breast and turkey to even it out. Well it's somewhat the same with skin products.
The good news is that we can enjoy 100% of the soap we use and really do not have to give up anything as good as a good ole slice of bacon! In fact, most anyone will enjoy natural and organic soap much more that the store bought ones.
The bonus part is that it really is not even any more expensive when you add up the cost correctly. Most handmade soap is crafted using natural ingredients that have a longer lasting bar than the products they sell you at the store, some ofSheaGarden'ssoap even last twice as long as normal ones! Just that benefit alone can even the cost out but there is another thing to consider.
How much moisturizer do you have to use to counteract the drying conditions that cheap soap leaves you with? How much time and effort do you spend on rubbing lotions and creams because your skin is just not right after that shower? With many Handcrafted soaps, this is not a problem.
So why not make the change? Are you willing to try something new that your body and health will benefit from for years to come? Maybe it's time to join the millions that have given up those heavily marketed cheap store produtcts and switch over to the real and natural stuff! find our more and explore here at our home page SheaGarden
So it's that time again to take the Garden's soap to market! It was a popular success a couple of weeks ago when the wife and I set up shop at the Flying Monkey Arts Center in Huntsville, Alabama, where we sold some product and got some great networking in with fellow small business owners.
I have to say I'm looking forward to next weekend even more!. There are plenty of things to do at the Center including puppet shows, a play theater, all hand crafted vendors and great food as well. If you live in the area, bring your family and friends (or pets) to show your support to all artist and crafters that put in hard work for something great and something different.
In the near future, I will be posting an event calendar that will have any and all physical locations that Shea Garden will have products set up. Below you will find some pictures of the Arts Center as well as date and location information.
After many months of trying ideas and researching ways to label my handmade soaps I finally settled on and easy and cheap way to do it. All you need is some type of document or word program (I used Pages) and some imagination.
After designing my desired color scheme and what I wanted on the label, I simply repeated four label wraps that would fit my custom sized soaps on my word document and printed them out on an 8 1/2 by 11 standard printing paper. I then used a card stock cutter as pictured below to get perfectly even cuts for the wraps.
Once I tested this design and format on my soaps I simply emailed Staples and had them print out a desired amount of these on their premium paper. Note: I printed both black and white and color because of the cost difference, B/W 15 cents, Color 59 cents. Not only does that save a few pennies, it also creates a more rustic and varied look to the multiple soaps when they are placed together. You can even have different color backgrounds on save files so you can match it with scents.
These pictures represent the final design I decided to use on my soaps, however, I have now added a space for soap name and scent.
