Happy New Year to everyone!
Hope this latest addition to the blog finds everyone having had a wonderful holiday and sticking to their resolutions for 2010.
I am knee deep into testing new fragrances for the aromachology candle line (Pink Icing, Raspberry Truffle, Mediteranian Fig, Lavender Coconut Milk, Basil Tomato Leaf and Lemongrass Sage just to name a few). Sweet Almond and Madagascar Vanilla & Ylang Ylang essential oils will be included in the aromatherapy line as well. 4 different types of glycerine soaps will be available this year in Oatmeal, Aloe/Olive Oil, Honey and Shea Silk.
I'm also looking into some wonderful letterpressed cards and gourmet chocolates for Valentine's Day.
One thing I wanted to do with the start of the new year, is to help promote a local new business like myself..."Robinwood". Fred & Trina Drotleff 's quaint shop is just down the street from mine (94 North Market Street) and they have cozy handknits made from Alpaca's made either with their own Aplaca fleece or some of the other local farms in the area. There is a nice selection of hats, gloves, scarves, throws and more! http://www.robinwoodfarmalpacas.com/
The hat and gloves I'm wearing in the photo are from their shop and are priced between 15.00 and 20.00. The 11 oz aromachology tumbler candle comes beautifully boxed for 10.95 at the 1820 House candle studio 135 North Market Street , East Palestine, Ohio 44413
So, now there is no excuse not to experience nature inside & out. The warm glow of a 1820 House candle inside and the warmth of Robinwood's Aplaca handknits while you enjoy the outdoors this winter.
