One month and almost 200 sales!

Tomorrow, March 15th will be the one month mark of my Etsy shop's grand opening!
One month, 197 sales (will i get to 200 by tomorrow?) and a whole lot of Everyday Divas!
My customers mean the world to me, I love you all! Gina, Nina, Amanda, Valerie, Pam and of course everyone else! You guys have been amazing to us!

Over the course of the month, I was able to add a few new scents and other items. This coming week I'll be adding Vanilla Pear & Butter Cream Frosting fragrance, I'm gonna have a whirl at strawberry citrus... Chamomile Butter, Acai Butter, and a new Antioxidant facial moisturizer with Green Tea, Pomegranate, Acai berry & Chamomile! I've already started my next batch of Lactic Acid Scrub with the Pom/Acai blend and I need to photograph the moisturizer and list it yet. I will have some awesome new soaps available in a few weeks once they're done curing. I'll be working on a beer soap tomorrow and also some natural laundry detergent :)  
Hopefully I'll have an extra set of hands so I can get some pics/videos.

I think that is really great. Congrats and good luck getting to 200 if you are not there already by now.

OMG How are you?? I was just thinking about you yesterday. I visit your blog every now and then to see if you've posted any updates.

I'd also like to report that Sammy's Sanctuary has brought in $241.19 this month :)
We had a minor set back... Dashel (the new rescue) mauled Sammy's tail and he needed surgery to remove tissue and to stitch it up. We had no clue that he had the wound until I saw blood on my bathroom floor. I guess he had it for a couple days (that's why he would growl if his back was touched) so the vet said that we're lucky we caught it because it could've gone septic and killed him. We had no clue that Dashel would be capable of that since he's 16 years old and can barely walk :(
So, now poor Sammy has to wear this vinyl halo thingie on his neck so he can't get at his tail.. he already managed to bust it open again. So, now we can't let them together... they're worst than the kids!

You're most welcome! And yes, you will definitely get to 200 by tomorrow. There's no doubt in my mind. Your shop is doing so well. Congrats! I'm really happy for you :)

I bought natural laundry detergent last week. Whenever you start selling some, I will try it out for sure. Come up with great, fresh scents ;)

Good luck and have fun!

Congrats! I am not surprised, you have top notch custermer service, you use awesome ingredients, and your prices are fair! I know you will go far in life :-) and omg I can't belive you are actually using my suggestion for strawberry citrus scent! Usually when bussinesses ask for suggestions they seldom listen... I hope it goes well, you can count on me for being the first person to buy it LOL!

So sorry to hear about your cats! I hope after the tail heals they both learn to get along!

I adore your products and you are so kind and amazing! Thank you for helping to educate all of us on better skin health and then pricing everything so that everyone can afford it!!! Cannot wait to try the new scents!!!! I already have my eye on a few I'm wanting to try when you get them listed! My bathroom is gonna be COVERED in your products! LOL!

Thanks Gina! You're a pleasure to create for.. I can't say it enough!

I have to give a lot of credit to my suppliers... It took me a good 3-4 years to find one that had everything I needed and who actually MADE my ingredients, not just bought them from a factory and re-sold them. It's amazing what these "middle men" supplier charge for stuff. No wonder people are selling things for double my prices! My guys have been incredible and have bent over backwards making sure everything was analyzed for purity and had the proper FDA approval. Without them, I'd just be another company trying to push my cheaply made cosmetic grade products that don't work. These guys will get out of bed at 4am to answer my calls and email me weekly to check on me. I'm by no means a valuable customer to them either. I order by the kg, which is small since they export tons of this stuff to larger companies at a time.. So, I really have to give them a shout out because without them, this wouldn't be possible. I'm SOOO lucky that they took me under their wing and treat me like I'm a huge buyer.

I'm surprised you haven't sold more than that! I've been buying bath and beauty on Etsy since 2007 and have bought from just about every one including the top sellers and I swear they don't come anywhere close to being as great as yours. You really have something extraordinary and I am amazed ever more with each new order. My favorites are the c and e and ferulic serum and the no poo shampoo. Your serum works better than skincuticals (sp?) and your shampoo makes me hair look like hair and not straw. I wish you'd sell it by the gallon!
