Shop Update

I’ve had a lot of people ask me recently if I’m keeping La Petite Vie open. Yes! I’m attempting to juggle teaching kindergarten, being a patient and mindful Mama, AND making soap. I know this sounds crazy, but I really love what I’ve created with La Petite Vie and want to continue. Plus, it helps me take care of myself – I’m surrounded by bath products. πŸ™‚ Keeping all that in mind, I would shop early for the holidays. If its as busy as it was last year, I won’t be able to rush orders.

New scents in the shop:

IMG_3568The fresh scent of ginger is balanced in an original blend of essential oils to create a woody, sweet, spicy scent that men and women love.

IMG_2718Gravity was so named for it’s sweet heady rose scent that is grounded by woody vetivers and cedarwood oils. Just when you start to lose yourself in the floralness of this soap, the earthy base notes bring you back to reality. And, it’s on sale right now!

IMG_3549After making the Little Bee Balm, one of the shop owners I work with suggested I make the balm in her favorite scent (and one of my best selling soaps): lemongrass rosemary. Applying these balms is a daily ritual I love and I can’t get enough of this one. The lemongrass rosemary balm will be popular, I’m sure.

Enjoy!

Valentines Day Ideas

We are excitedly preparing for Valentine’s Day in our house. It is such a heartwarming holiday with little kids. Some parts of Halloween are a bit too scary, Christmas is fun, but exhausting (and so commercial!) for me. Valentine’s Day might be my new favorite holiday.

I humbly suggest a few items available in my shop that would perfect for teachers,Β  sweethearts, children, and yourself!

Perfume is a traditional Valentines gift and this one travels well for reapplication. It is floral and a tiny bit spicy. It moisturizes well and I use it as a balm for my hands at times also.

This linen spray will scent pillows, towels, sheets, and more in a favorite sensual scent. It’s an unexpected and much appreciated gift.

Choose a sustainable, long-lasting rose – Rose lip balm. Make those lips kissable!

Of course, you can always add a gift certificate so your special someone can purchase exactly what they have their eyes on. Contact me to choose a different amount to give.

Spoil the people you love!

A pampering holiday

Aside

It’s hard to believe but Valentine’s Day is on its way. It seems to arrive at just the right time to get us through the January blahs. We can busy ourselves on these cold gray days making valentines and reflecting on all the love in our lives.

May I suggest a few items to pamper those you love?

Spicy Bath Fizzies are a very popular and have an irresistible scent.

This lavender filled heart pillow is a sweet gift for a child to snuggle. Just tuck in a little love note for a comforting present.

I love this Bath Tea. My skin is so soft after using it and the herbs are so calming. Especially when you drink a glass of wine while you soak. πŸ˜‰

Of course, you can’t love anyone else unless you take care of yourself. Give yourself a little luxury this season as well.
