New Felted Soap

Hi B&C Friends,

Our unique collection of handmade soap is now available in a special edition of beautifully designed felted soaps! Each bar is individually handcrafted with soft, 100% merino wool by local Ashland knit and fiber artist, Jo Ann Manzone from Dreamweaving Designs. All pieces are rich in color and texture. Jo Ann has truly created little works of art that are sure to be a popular gift to give and to receive this holiday season.

Use the felted soap as you would any of your favorite Bowerbird & Company bar soaps. The lather is rich and extra moisturizing, as the natural lanolin is pulled from the wool and mixed with the natural glycerin found in our soap’s organic & wildcrafted oils. Felted soap also makes a wonderful exfoliant. As you use the bar, the felt shrinks with the soap until you are left with only a small piece of felt. Then, you can wrap lavender buds inside, creating lavender sachets that are perfect to tuck away in your linen closet or drawers in your nightstand, vanity, or dresser. A great way to reuse the felt left behind and scent your home again and again.

Contact us at info@bowerbirdandco.com if you would like to special order your favorite scented soap wrapped in felt. We can also special order a series of felted soaps in any particular color palate, if you are looking to buy several for gifts or stocking stuffers.

This exciting new collaboration will also be available at the various events we’ll be showing at this November & December in the Rogue Valley. Click here to see a list of our 2012 holiday events.

A very happy Autumn to you all,

The Lip Fix

Hi B&C Friends,

It’s official! The lip balm has quite a following these days! Lip Fix is a healing lip balm for dry, cracked lips. It covers lips with a defensive coating that protects against harsh elements and all kinds of weather. Specially formulated with Wildcrafted Cocoa Butter, Organic Beeswax, Sweet Almond Oil, Shea Butter and Vitamin E, Lip Fix comes in five uniquely different flavors: Sweet Marjoram, Peppermint, Juniper Berry, & Fennel. And, for those who prefer a product a la natural, I’ve created the Unscented Lip Fix, which has undoubtedly been the most popular this summer. Bowerbird & Company’s Lip Fix is a great healer and one that will help keep your lips well moisturized!


Another Hot Summer Day

Hi B&C Friends,

Just a note to say that the forecast for Thursday is hot. They are predicting 108 degrees and although my soap won’t melt in conditions that intense, I know that I certainly will! So I will unfortunately be skipping the market in Medford this Thursday and hope that I see you  in Ashland at the Saturday market instead.

Make a little lavender lemonade this weekend!

Summer Heat!

Hi B&C Friends,

The temperature will reach well above 100 degrees tomorrow in the Rogue Valley and so I’ve decided to skip the Saturday market by the creek in Ashland along with the other Lithia Artisans who want to escape the heat wave. I won’t be showing the following Saturday either, so look for the turquoise umbrella on Calle Guanajuato (behind the Plaza) again on Saturday, August 18th.

Stay cool,

Ali
