The Perfect Mother’s Day Gift

Your relationship with your mother is like nothing else.  She changed your diapers, wiped your nose and push comes to shove, will do almost anything for you.  But, she’s also the person that can push your buttons quicker than anyone else.

But, doesn’t she deserve the best Mother’s Day gift you can find?

Let Glynne’s Soaps help you find that perfect gift.  With our extensive selection of soaps, lotions, lip balm and other skin care products, we can help you put together a gift that mom is sure to love.

Here are a few ideas to get the ball rolling.

Perfect Peace - this lavender oatmeal soap is one of our best sellers.  With the soothing scent of lavender and just the right amount of ground oats, it’s the perfect combination of relaxation and exfoliation.

Flip Flop Balm - does your mom love her flip flops?  Then this is the lotion for her.  Made with shea butter and coconut oil it with smooth rough skin and soothe tired feet without that greasy feeling.  Comes in two scents- peppermint lavender and dreamsicle.

 

Lavender Pillow Spray - For those nights when mom has trouble sleeping, just a spritz of this relaxing pillow spray will give her a peaceful night’s sleep.

 

Zen Aura - made with freshly brewed green tea and lemongrass essential oil, this soap has an exhilarating citrus scent that will invigorate and clear the mind of the stresses of the day.

These are just a small sampling of the over 100 items we have to offer.  You can pick and choose for yourself, or let our knowledgeable staff help you find just the right gift for your mom, wife, sister, daughter or any one else that you want to celebrate.  Because she’s worth it.

Celebrate National Mom and Pop Business Day

Today is National Mom and Pop Business Owners Day. While no one here at Glynne’s Soaps is a mom (nor a pop), unless of course you count two cute Dalmatians as kids – and we do, we are a small business swimming upstream against the hard tide of big competitors.

Make no mistake it is a hard tide!

Go to any grocery store or big box sell everything store and walk down the isle of soaps and you will see that hard tide of competition. There are the bad for your skin full of chemical stuff, then there is the national brand which clams to be an all natural (I’m not commenting on whether they are or not) but they are all there and lets face it, it is easy to just pick one up and put it in your cart.

But our swim against the hard tide doesn’t stop there. Recently a friend said to me, ‘why don’t you sell your soaps unwrapped like the other local soap makers?’ After taking time to close my mouth, and resist the slapping urge, I calmly (at least in my mind) explained yet again, the difference between melt and pour soaps and natural soaps, the difference between unnatural colors and dyes and natural color and the difference between fragrance (synthetic) oils and therapeutic grade essential oils. I also explained that our business plan is to create the best possible natural product (not necessarily the prettiest product – although I do think out products are pretty).

Here at Glynne’s Soaps we are celebrating National Mom and Pop Business Day by continuing to make the best possible products from the best possible ingredients.

Thank you for continuing to choose our products for you and your pets.

We Survived Our First Four Years

Yesterday the Glynne’s Soaps crew celebrated our fourth anniversary. We shared our feelings in our latest newsletter, but I wanted to share them again here.

I just want to reiterate, we couldn’t have reached this milestone without the love and support of so many people!

CAN YOU BELIEVE IT!

GLYNNE’S SOAPS TURNED FOUR YESTERDAY!

We now understand why most businesses fail within five years….getting to year four is really hard! There is no doubt the word quit has been used more this past year than it has in probably either of our lives. But we made it!

Being able to say we’ve successfully survived four years makes the long hours and putting every extra penny back into the business to help it grow worth it.

We’re already looking forward to celebrating year five!

Jenn has lots of ideas for new products. We are evaluating how to capture more of a market share online. In other words, we’re still working :)

Where We’ve Been

As often happens with birthdays or anniversaries, we are spending some time today looking back at where we’ve been.  At our first festival we had 3 different varieties of soaps, all of them for dogs.  Now we carry almost 30 different types of soaps, along with lotions, sprays, bath soaks, candles and other skin care items.  Our products can be found if over 20 stores in 4 states.  We ship products all over the United Statesand even overseas.

Through it all, we have remained true to our mission and passion – we want to provide people with the best natural skin care using no artificial ingredients or fragrances.  There is so much out there that is bad for you, your family and your pets.  We provide safe alternatives to many of the dangerous chemicals that can be found in commercial products.

We are very proud of the fact that we have not compromised on our ingredients even though it would be less expensive and often easier.  However, we will always remain committed to providing you with the safest products available for you and your family.

It feels great to be four!

And we’d like to share that feeling with you.

So we’re giving you the chance to get four bars for $14.44! (Regularly $24.00) Just go to our website, pick your four bars (you can get more but only 4 at the super low price) and enter coupon code 1444 at check out. This offer ends October 28th so do not delay. The offer is good for any bar soaps (dog or human).

Where We Have Gone

Over Christmas vacation, Gayle’s mom asked us an interesting question.  She wanted to know just how many different states we had shipped product to.  We couldn’t even begin to guess, so when we returned from our Christmas holiday, we searched through all our orders to count all the places that our all natural soap had been sent.

The verdict – 26!  We have sent Glynne’s Soaps to over half of the states in the USA.  We were pretty excited about that.  Of course, this only counts the states we have shipped product to, it does not include people who have purchased products at festivals and shipped it themselves, or people from other states who bought our product in stores or at a festival and returned home with it.  I know we have had at least 2 people buy products and ship them overseas.

It was fun to figure out exactly where our soap has gone.  Hopefully we can add to that list in 2012.
