Charcoal Soap is our Beauty Secret…


We have been huge fans of charcoal products for some time now, and we are SO excited to have this new charcoal soap in the shop from local company, Park Soap! This big bar of soap (6 oz) is full of detoxifying activated charcoal, making it the perfect facial cleanser. It’s great for the rest of your body too. It’s summer time and that means a little more sweat and a little more dirt. Keep your skin clean, clear and summer fresh. $12

Charcoal is the new Black


I am obsessed with charcoal! We have lots of great new products incorporating the myriad benefits of binchotan charcoal. For the next few weeks I will highlight those products and give some more information about their uses and benefits. Charcoal is useful all around the home, from the kitchen to the garden, and even in your beauty regime. We carry loose charcoal sticks, charcoal-infused toothbrushes, pumice stones, eye masks, and my favorite: facial puffs. The puff feels hard to the touch, but softens right up under water. It’s not abrasive like many scrubs and puffs, but it leaves my skin glowing and baby soft. My skin swings toward southern European oiliness, and I’ve noticed a real difference since using this regularly in the shower. Charcoal balances your PH levels, which reduces excess oil production. I absolutely love it! Check back next week for more about binchotan charcoal and it’s many uses!!

Egg White Soaps Are Back!!!

Hey everybody! Jess here, Manager Extraordinaire!! Recently one of our best customers stopped in, desperate for more of our Victoria Egg White Facial Soaps. Due to production problems they were unavailable for months, but we finally have them back in stock. After hearing customers rave about them, I decided it was time to try for myself. Oh, are they heavenly! My skin immediately felt clean but not stripped of moisture. I am a convert! It’s no big surprise they’re great; the Victoria Soap Company has been making these soaps since the early 1900’s. The protein-rich bars also have added rose water and lanolin to soothe and protect your face. They’re packaged in a beautiful box that makes them perfect as a gift as well! Box of 6 bars for $22.

Herban Essentials

Herban EssentialsI tried Herban Essentials towelettes a few years ago and was hooked straight away. They are individually wrapped towelettes made from the highest quality, 100% pure, therapeutic grade, steam distilled or cold pressed essential oils. They make a constant effort to obtain organic, wild-grown oils from American farmers whenever possible (all made in the USA & cruelty free and are never tested on animals). They also WORK REALLY WELL. The essential oils make them smell amazing, but also make them naturally antibacterial and antiseptic as well. The most common use for the towelettes is to cleanse the hands and kill germs, but there are millions of ways to use these wonderful wipes! Rob pops them in his pocket before shows for a little “instant shower.” Very refreshing. In fact, I have to say they are as popular with men (my friend Tom loves them too!) as they are with the ladies. The mixed pack, above, includes 20 towelettes- a mixed bag of Lavender (Lavender oil is renowned for its calming and healing properties), Peppermint ( Peppermint oil is invigoration and energizing) and Lemon (Lemon oil is refreshing and uplifting).

Herban Essentials- Lemonor get yourself a whole bag of the wonderful lemon ones  (these were an Allure Beauty Award Winner)–

  • inhale aroma to stimulate creativity and concentration
  • place in a diffuser or wave through air to eliminate odors and purify surroundings (kills bacteria and many airborne viruses)
  • smooth over face as an astringent or aftershave
  • wipe phones, computer keyboards, etc. in office or at home to prevent the spread of germs
  • toss them in the refrigerator for a special rejuvenating treat on a hot day or after a workout

Throw them in your purse, backpack, briefcase, car, wallet, or gym bag to enjoy their germ-killing, mood-lifting, fabulousness everywhere you go! People have been loading up on them for summer travels too. $15 per bag. We even have them for your Pets


Use these towelettes to clean your hands and kill germs after playing with, caring for, or cleaning up after your pet. Rub a towelette over pet’s hotspots, scrapes, or skin irritations to disinfect, promote healing, and prevent licking. Place a towelette in pet’s crate to help calm and relax in stressful situations (ie: vet visits, illness, travel). Use towelettes to regularly clean pet’s ears.

The Gnome Obsession continues–

Gnome soap on a ropeThe Gnome Obession continues with the newly arrived GNOME SOAP ON A ROPE! Love it! Comes in a cute little box, all for $12. Was I the only one that gave my Dad soap on a rope every year for Father’s Day?? Perhaps, but maybe you’d like to start a new tradition with this fun little guy.

Gnome from State StreetAlso- remember this little guy above? We identified its owner! It’s Tim, the wondeful block captain from State Street, a loyal customer and friend.

Finding Your Way…

Compass necklaceIt’s Graduation time– and there are, of course, the usual Graduation Gifts out there, but since we are always trying to take it up a notch with cleverness and wit (and fun & function) we have come up with some different twists on the Graduation theme. The first is the compass necklace, above (also comes black/white lettering ), to help your special grad (or yourself!) find your way, $25.

Be AmazingAnother great idea is this cool new book from the Mental Floss people, Be Amazing. It offers practical advice for the graduate- such as “Colonize a Nation,” “Start your own religion,” “Perform your Own Surgery” and MANY more… $16.99.

Graduation mad libsGraduation Mad Libs. Fun for all ages.  Would even lighten up the most serious PhD candidate,  or middle schooler needing help looking for the next Verb or Pronoun. $3.99.
