Mother’s Day Gift Baskets

Mother’s Day is coming up in May, so consider treating her to a large basket of Ciggy’s Soaps. The ones below are available as is, or I can customize them, adding different soaps, homemade lotion bars, home made lip balms, chocolates (not made by me, but add a sweet treat), and hand written cards in calligraphy with stamp embossing, for your own personal message.

Here are examples of medium and large gift baskets, including soaps that have “Happy Mother’s Day” and “Thank you from the bottom of my heart” embedded in them on dissolvable paper.

Lavender Lotion Bars

Soothing lavender lotion bars.

These are solid lotion bars in little tins, perfect for your bag!

1 ounce bars in flower shapes, as below, or 2 ounce bars in a smooth oval or a massage bar (with little nubs on the bottom).

PSX_20180408_164028

Rub these moisturizing, soothing, lovely smelling bars between your hands or directly on the area of skin, and massage the oils in.

Ingredients: Macadamia nut butter (vegan), Kokum butter (vegan), Beeswax (my 1 non vegan ingredient since it comes from bees, sorry!, BUT no bees are harmed in the collection of this wax from the comb!!), tapioca starch, jojoba oil, vitamin E (vegan), lavender essential oil, and organic dried French lavender buds.

No preservatives, so each bar lasts 1 year from creation (latest batch made 10/5/18). Keep away from direct heat or it will melt.

Bath Bomb FIZZES

Bath Bomb Fizzes are now available to bring luxury and fun to your bath time!

Bath baomb styles
Clockwise from top left: Large triangle bath bomb (3 inch diameter), rose (2 inch diameter, 3 inches high), heart (~2″), star (~2″), and regular 2 inch diameter sphere

Just plop one in a warm bath and watch it spin and fizz. Get a regular size one (2 inch diameter or larger) in a variety of shapes to enjoy watching it fizz just like those Lush bath bombs for way less money (mine are $2 each, or 3 for $5, versus an average of $8 for just one of theirs!), and to fill your bath with a lovely scent and soothing coconut oil. These bath bombs do not change the color of the water (unless otherwise indicated) and do not leave a ring of color behind to clean up. Some contain dried lavender buds or dried rose petals in the center (indicated with a sprinkle on top) for more bath luxury.

Small Seashell bath bombs are available in packs of 8. These are great for kids who want to keep plopping one fizz in the bath after another. They have the same soft coconut oil and other ingredients as the larger versions, but no dried flowers.  Just $2 per pack.

These bath bombs do not contain preservatives, so they are good for 6 months from the creation date. Large orders can be customized and made just for you! Just contact me.

Coming soon: Bubble bars for more bath time fun!

Automobile/ Car Soaps

IMG_20180328_130722_031

Large (4-6 oz by weight, 5+ oz by volume) car soaps are now available! Clear soap for the windshields, and a variety of shimmering colors for the bodies make these cars look pretty real. Super fun for kids.

Oatmeal Shea Car Soaps
Creamy colored oatmeal shea soap for the body, clear glycerin for the windshields (tinted slightly here with the blood orange oil for a wonderful smell)

Just $6-7 each for these large, hand made soaps. (Truck or Car $6, Jeep $7).

Oatmeal & Shea Butter Soaps, Popsicles, Garden shapes, and surprises!

Flower and bug (butterflies, ladybugs, firefly) soaps now available in a variety of new shapes and colors. The oatmeal and shea butter soap is extra soothing and moisturizing for sensitive skin. These soaps are also available in adorable gift baskets. $6 each.

IMG_20180326_150428_265Surprise! This soap uses a soft rubber spider (this one is missing 2 legs, but the other spiders have 8 legs), as if it got caught. Really fun for kids. $7 each, discount for multiples.

PSX_20180326_214802Berry vanilla scented popsicle soaps are another “surprise” for kids to have in their soap dish at home.  These are extra moisturizing, with oatmeal and shea butter, but the oatmeal can be removed for a smoother appearance (they naturally make those light freckles in the soap), if one prefers. Bigger than an average bar of soap. $7 each.

More shapes, sizes and colors now available! Small but beautiful shimmering gem soaps (larger crystals also available). Mini Lego-like toy brick and figurine shapes in many colors, or just get one large robot figure for the soap dish. $1 per gem or mini soap (Jewish Stars, aka Magen David, also available), or get 6 of them for $5! Larger figurine soap $5.

My latest loaf soap (industry speak for a giant loaf of soap cut into regular soap bars) is a rose oil shimmery blue glycerin soap with pearl glycerin soap “bubbles” embedded throughout. $5 per bar.

Finally, more surprise soaps. Bunny erasers are fun, and kids collect them now. Not for kids 3 and under (due to small size of erasers). All of these soaps smell great and sparkle in the soap dish. Just $5 each.

Encourage your kids to wash their hands (spouses and friends, too) with nice scents, shapes, colors, and prizes!

 

Bath Salts

IMG_20180327_171417_434.jpg

Add these salt and flower combinations to your bath to breathe in a wonderful scent & relax.

Note, these are made with real salt, not to be confused with the slang term of the same name.

Rose Bath Salts

A beautiful combination of Dead Sea salt (from the Middle East!), Himalayan Pink salt, rose essential oil, and dried rose buds and petals from real roses. Comes with a little organza bag, which you can put the salts in, if you don’t want the rose petals floating around your bath. Alternatively, you can use a tea bag to hold the salts, or just pour them directly in a warm bath (pouring directly into the hot stream of water as your bath fills up lets them dissolve fastest). The scent of the rose oil and petals make for a romantic atmosphere, while the salts do their work.

Lavender Bath Salts

This jar uses lavender scented epsom salts for muscle relaxation, combined with Dead Sea salt, lavender essential oil, and real organic French lavender buds. Looks, smells, and feels great.

Eucalyptus & Mint Bath Salts

These bath salts are great for muscle relaxation, as well as breathing in the refreshing scent of eucalyptus & mint when you have a stuffy nose. It combines Eucalyptus and spearmint epsom salts with Dead Sea salts, and a little bit of color to brighten your bath. Each jar has a piece of real dried eucalyptus leaves in the center, still on the branch, so it’s easy to remove from your bath, without needing a bag or filter.

All of the Bath Salts

Packaging choices: an 8 or 16 ounce reusable glass jar (worth $2-4 by themselves), a large 16 oz silver bag (heat sealed), or 3 pre-filled large bath “tea” bags that you can drop directly into the bath.

Tags can be added for decoration and personalized. Messages can be written in calligraphy, with stamps, embossing, and stickers added.

These are beautiful just to display next to your bath, even if you don’t use them directly in the water. Or leave the lid open to add a nice fragrance to the room. Now grab your jar, sprinkle in a warm bath, and enjoy!

Soap for Everybody!

All of my soaps have a vegetable glycerin base. Dried flowers, flower essential oils, color (mostly mica powder, a mineral), tiny toys, exfoliants (more plants!), and moisturizers are added in various combinations to make the soaps pretty and pleasing. Hand made in my home for use in yours.
