Despite the lovely weather, we're already receiving lots of enquiries about Christmas gifts. Rest assured - it's all in hand! Behind the scenes, we've been working on some lovely new natural skincare gift hampers and organic soaps, so it's been smelling a little festive in the workshop! So there's not long to wait now - our Christmas catalogue will be available to local customers on the 1st October, and we'll be uploading Christmas gift ideas onto the websites around that time too.
Customers will remember that it became a little manic last year (understatement!), so we're advising everyone to order early this year since we have no doubts that we'll have to close our order book early again.
Finally with busy times ahead, we've decided to take a short break from the workshop after the August Bank Holiday. Our Ruskin shop will be closed between Sunday 28th August - Monday 5th September, but we'll be staying open on-line so website orders will be processed as normal. Hopefully we'll have a chance to recharge the batteries, before the festive season really begins!

For a while now, Stourbridge customers have been enjoying our lovely petal covered fizzing bath melts as stand alone products. By popular request, we've now added these to The Natural Soapworks website, so our internet customers can also enjoy these gorgeous bath treats! They are individually wrapped in cellophane bags, making them perfect as small gifts or as an affordable alternative to our usual bath bombs.
Unlike many other bath melts we've seen, ours do not contain any synthetics or detergents, so they are completely natural with only essential oil blended fragrances and no artificial colours. They are quite tricky to make since they have to be hand rolled in petals, and we've also designed some lovely new fragrances including Uplift, Exotic Flowers and Ylang Geranium. You'll find that our Fizzing Bath Melts gently melt and fizz in hot water and release lots of petals and botanicals into the bath water, for really luxurious bathing!
They contain lots of organic (Soil Association accredited) shea and cocoa butters, so bath melt fans have been telling us they are so moisturising that body lotion is no longer required and they're also suiting dry or troubled skin conditions. We'd suggest that you just pat your skin dry after leaving the bath, to allow the natural butters and essential oils to sink into the skin. We're so pleased customers are enjoying using these so much!
