It's the final push for holiday soaps and sets. I have been very busy making and packing, but also taking my time. I have now released my strand serum, which is a wonderful mixture of premium oils that work on body, hair, beards, and scalp.  Also, it's our first real snow day of the year, and I'm beyond jazzed. I am from Vancouver, so snow days like this are still rare to me, plus I have studded snowies and AWD, and I work from home.  I hope everyone is having a great weekend!

Quick little blurb of what's new in the shop very soon: Beard oil (for the beardiest of the beards. And by that, I mean let's take down that winter itch associated with the dry air under that mane on your chin.) New bath bombs (they will no longer look like boobs, which may or may not be a good thing). Shower steamers (for all you non-bathers).

Coconut milk is a natural, vegan fatty base for the soaps. They have fatty acids...

With my husband's latest bout of seizures, his epileptologist has decided it's time to admit him, take him off of his meds, watch him seize, and determine if he's a candidate for brain surgery. As in.... remove part of his brain. I never thought I'd hope that someone would go in and do such a thing, but here we are. We found this out...

Well, it happened! My friend moved into the spare room in my basement, she will likely be here until the new year. This is good news, as my husband had a cluster of 4 tonic-clonic seizures last week, and was hospitalized for a few days while they adjusted his medication. His postictal state has always been long, but now it's violent and he has to be sedated by paramedics. It's so dangerous, and as such we had to pull out of the Superflea. Luckily, my friend was able to help me with the dogs while I held him back from...
