Out With The Old, In With The New




Today, dear reader, The Bibbed Wonder and I will be in the soap studio making our first two full time batches of Vanilla Bean Dream. We are making a few changes to our full-time inventory. After much consideration and looking at sales and numbers, we have decided to retire several of our less popular soap and moisturizer scents. I am in a constant struggle with my business partner/husband to keep things fresh, interesting, and exciting. Many of you know that if left up to The Bibbed Wonder, all our soaps would be round, one solid color, have no glitter, and our scents would remain the same year-round. It has taken a bit of maneuvering and negotiating, but we have finally found common ground with new scents.


The scents that will be retiring this year are The Woodsman, To The Moon and Back, Coocoo Banana, and Orange Clove Cinnamon. We are replacing The Woodsman with the wildly popular Panty Dropper. Orange Clove Cinnamon will be replaced with the well-received Vanilla Bean Dream. Coocoo Banana will be replaced with a Baby Powder and Raspberry blend. The Bean has named Fairytale. To The Moon and Back will be replaced with a fresh soft scent The Bean has called Sleep Sweet. We are also adding a fruity blend to the children's line that The Bean has named Mango Tango.


After tiring negotiations, I have also convinced my bib overall wearing wonder buns to add two coumarin scents to our line-up. I adore our Christmas scent Comfort and Joy. This is also one of our most popular scents for the holidays. After years of suggesting we make a year-round blend with the coumarin (fresh hay scent), my bib overall wearing nay-sayer has agreed to bring on a soft feminine scent and a more earthy blend. These two soaps are still in the design stage, but I have settled on the oil blends, and I can't wait to make our first batch.


Today, we will make Vanilla Bean Dream. You may remember Vanilla Bean Dream from last year's product line-up. It was so well received we decided to bring it on full-time. I have an exciting addition to this soap. I was able to acquire organic vanilla beans and pods from my friend Amanda who owns Sweet Home Vanilla. I dehydrated and ground the pods and beans and I will be adding them to the base of Vanilla Bean Dream as a gentle exfoliant. When I was dehydrating the beans and pods, our kitchen smelled like delicious vanilla cake. I hope this scent shines through in the soap as well.


Working with my friends who own small businesses is delightful. I am happy to support and promote their businesses, add interest and quality to my products, and bring you locally sourced, natural, high-quality products. We have built a wonderful little community of local, woman owned, small businesses. I hope you are as excited for this as I am. On this wonderfully sunny winter day, stay safe, be smart, be excited for new things, and keep washing your hands.

I loved Vanilla Bean Dream, so I am very happy to hear it will be offered full time! Fairytale sounds amazing and Comfort and Joy is also a favorite of mine! I’m looking forward to smelling and buying all the new scents this year! 💜
