Business has been a little slow this month. I’m a bit disappointed but I’m trying to be realistic. My etsy shop has only been open for a few months so I can’t expect to have a steady amount of orders coming in yet. Logically that makes sense, but also, until I sell more soap, I really shouldn’t make anymore.
That makes me sad because I love to make soap! I am making a loaf or two a week for a couple of soap challenges I am involved with but still, I have a ton more I want to make but not enough room to really cure them until I sell some more. Oh, well I guess I need to work on my marketing skills (and my patience)! To see the soaps I have made so far for challenges check out here and here.
I did apply for a table at the local farmer’s market for the summer, but won’t hear if I got a spot until the end of April and I am finding myself less than patient! I am constantly reminding myself to leave it in God’s hands but my human nature is battling with that control issue. When will I ever learn?
I do have a few soaps that will be cured soon and I will be adding them to the shop over the next couple of weeks.
The Honey Bee Lovin’ soap is unscented and contains beeswax, honey, and bee pollen. It smells faintly sweet naturally which is great! The Peppermint Tea was made using brewed tea and is scented with Peppermint essential oil. I also added peppermint tea leaves for a bit of exfoliation a bit scrubby! Last, but not least, is my Oatmeal, Milk, and Honey soap. I do have some OMH soap available at the etsy shop, but this OMH is a newer batch made with evaporated goats milk, decorated with oats, and scented with oatmeal, milk, and honey fragrance smells yummy!
