What’s New?

The Research & Development Lab of Glynne’s Soaps has been busy lately.  And, we are pleased to announce three new products that are the result of this research (playing).

Air Therapy – an all natural aromatherapy spray that will leave your house smelling great and clear your mind as well.  It comes in two scents:

  1. Rain (Lemongrass & Bergamot) – encourages relaxation and calmness, and leaves you free of unnecessary fear and anxiety
  2. Aussie Rainforest (Eucalyptus) – used for centuries to increase brain wave activity and counter physical and mental fatigue

 

100% Soy Candles – these 4 oz candles are made with 100% Soy Wax and lead free wicks.

  1. Bug Off – made with the same essential oils that are in our popular lotion and soap, now in a candle to sit on your porch or deck.
  2. Morning Dew – a new blend for us, this candle is made with Lavender, Cypres, Sage and a touch of Orange essential oils.
  3. Citrus Zing (Orange and Ginger) – a wonderful fresh scent that will brighten any room
  4. Hipp”E” (Patchouli and Clove) – if you like patchouli, you will love this candle

Bath Salts - made with sea salt to soften and hydrate your skin. We also add Epsom salts to ease stress and decrease aches and pains, and baking soda for the softest skin possible.

  1. Aussie Rainforest – the eucalyptus essential oil is great to relieve sinus or respiratory problems.
  2. Rain – made with lemongrass and bergamot essential oils for a calming, stress reducing formula
  3. Tranquility – there is nothing like Lavender and Chamomile to help you unwind and the end of a tough day
  4. Rejuvenation – the best thing to ease sore muscles or headaches is this peppermint and eucalyptus combination

You can find all these products and more on our website, or you can come visit us at the Carolina Beach Farmer’s Market.

New Products from the Glynne’s Soaps Easter Bunny

We hope everyone had a great Easter vacation and was able to spend some time doing something that makes them happy.  We had a terrific day.  It began on the beach for a sunrise service, then home for breakfast, back to church and then lunch with friends.    This morning of activity was followed by an afternoon of leisure; reading, playing with Marshall and Wrigley and a short nap.

Even though the day was relaxing, it wasn’t all play, we did do a little bit of work.  But it was planning work – the fun kind.  We have been talking lately about expanding our product line, and have even come up with a few ideas for new things that we think would not only fit in with the Glynne’s Soaps all natural business model, but also be fun and exciting.  And yesterday, we ordered the supplies to bring our ideas to life.

We have come up with 3 new products that we will be unveiling next week at AzaleaFest.  There will also be a new lip balm flavor available next weekend, one that we think will cause quite a stir.

We won’t tell you what to expect, just that we think you will be as excited as we are.  Make time next weekend to come see us downtown, and all will be reveled.  Make sure you mention that you read our blog, we love meeting new friends!

Where We are Going

A new year always brings with it so much promise and excitement.  And here in the Glynne’s Soaps offices, things are no different.  We are looking forward to growing bigger and better in 2012.  To that end, here are some things you can look forward to seeing from us as the year progresses.

Products

There always seems to be an increasing list of products that we are interested in creating. Either things we have come up with, or things that customers have suggested to us.  Sometimes the list seems overwhelming.  But we have a few things that are on the “short list” for 2012 that we are very excited about.

  • Shaving soap – This has been on the list for too long, so look for it to become a reality this year.  The shaving soap, along with a brush and cup will be available in time for Father’s Day.
  • Soap made with hemp oil – The benefits of hemp oil are extensive due to it’s ratio of omega -3 to omega-6 fatty acids which matches the balance needed by the body.  Look for soaps containing this beneficial oil in the near future.
  • Cotton washcloths – We think  hand crocheted cotton washcloths will make a perfect addition to our line of products.  They will be rolling out soon as well.

Festivals

A major part of our business, farmer’s markets and festivals are also great fun and give us a chance to meet our customers face to face.  We plan on continuing to be involved with the Pleasure Island Farmer’s Market and the Carolina Beach Farmer’s Market, along with other festivals throughout the year.  You can always check our blog, or our Facebook page to keep up to date with where we will be.

Locations

We are consistently looking for new wholesale venues to sell our soap.  In 2012, the search will expand outside of our local area.

Staff

While there are currently no plans to add another staff member, you never know what the future might bring. But for now, Wrigley and Marshall are about all the staff we can handle.

We hope that you will continue to share the ride with us as we grow throughout 2012.  We couldn’t do it without you.
