Made to Order

Made to Order

Selling a ton of 16 oz. shampoo and body washes lately, which means I've been busy hand filling and scenting!  An aromatherapy "farmacist" if you will. 

I'm excited the washes are catching on, they're gentle, multipurpose and gender neutral--we've used them for years at our house.  You can also use it to beard wash & I use small amounts for hand washing some of my clothes.  O I love a multitasking product!

If you've never been to Urbaca, let me assure you, we have a million and one choices for shampoo/conditioners.

I don't regularly stock our 16 oz. washes because we don't have the shelf space.

I guess what I'm trying to say is, if you have purchased a 16 oz. wash recently, odds are I probably put it together just for you!  Hope you enjoy!  : )

Adventures in Boise

Adventures in Boise

There's not much I enjoy more than exposing the future estheticians of Idaho to a healthy dose of PDX weirdness. Chakra balancing classes at Oliver Finley went smashingly!

No trip to les Bois is complete without a quick soak and massage at The Springs in Idaho City.  Massages take place in a large tent, a delightful environment with super cool music. Like getting a massage while camping. 

 

Oliver Finley is such a beautiful school, the amenities are amazing, full photo studio, gorgeous facility.  Thank you Oliver Finley, see you next year!

PS. Found a new mezcal favorite

About our aromatherapy toners:  
"I've been using these round the clock, as a pick me up or a calm me down. Clouds of it float throughout my house. I spritz it on my face, hair, bod, pillow, children -- wherever.  I love them. They feel cool and soothing and both smell like a giant massage/facial/pampering explosion." - Lori Ferraro
