The beautiful you
As we enter into spring my mind is filled with flower thoughts inspired by warm dew and sunshine. This is an exciting time at Bittersweet. I just finished two new books that will be hitting the shelves soon, and I've began working on a third book. A fourth is also planned. Who knew? I certainly didn't. Life adventures are always there for the taking and get tossed in every now and then. Our shop is stocked with new spring soaps each week, and the fresh new scents are enchanting.
I'm wishing you a glorious spring filled with joy and happiness.

The New Year
As we approach a new year I can't help but ponder what a great year this one has been! I'm anticipating exciting new things coming ahead that I never imagined this time last year. Those thoughts are centered around two new books being published and a cluster of new products that are designed around thoughts of less is more. I'm also focusing on simpler times. My brother gifted me an old-fashioned glass lantern for Christmas, and my mind traveled to thoughts of how someone once read their favorite book or family bible by a golden lantern light. The lantern represents a nostalgic time when life was slower. Christmas is a magical time of year and I feel like her arrival is conducted by a craving for a quiet pace and tranquil moments filled with peace and joy.
We're taking a break from social media until after the new year so that we can heighten those thoughts and take in the beauty that wraps itself around this past years gratitude and reflection. We're excited to share our new designs, books, and ideas in the upcoming year ahead!
We wish you a happy new year!

Prepping for fall
We're gliding towards fall ever so softly, and I can't help but be inspired with all things fall. The new fall soap menu is shining bright! It was so much fun picking out soap names for this season and my inspiration was driven by nature and whimsical romance. It's inspiring to blend nature with romance, and in fact I believe the two compliment one another in a rare way.
Our shop is advancing towards our favorite season and excited to share our latest curations. Every year about this time we always say that this is the best we've ever had, but this year I have to say that it really is the best. The new fall collection is refined and special, and we know that you're going to love it as much as we do.
Blessings to you.

The scents of summer captivate me in ways that I can't put into words. Whether that be the gentle daisy-like petal of feverfew or the dark green silky soft basil leaves that seem to enhance summer in a way that can't be duplicated. The hedge of lavender that grows in my gardens is almost ready for early morning harvest, and the sweet grass is standing tall!
It's summer and time to take in her bounty of sunshine and warm southern breezes. Poolside parties and late night star gazing are on my calendar. Celebrations that center around our freedom, and red, white, and blue seem to shine much brighter during summer!
Our soap menu shines too! Essential oil blends that will knock your socks off!
We just launched a new summer collection called "Back to Basics." This assortment of curated essentials is surrounded by scents of lavender, mint, lemon, and Bulgarian rose. We've happily formulated an assortment of Refreshers that when spritzed on your body awaken your senses in a way that can't be described. The cooling and refreshing essential oil sprays will help to enhance your summer.
I'm writing in between soap making and managing the apothecary shop, and it feels as though no stone has been left unturned with each new endeavor.
Each year I'm reminded of my blessings and astonished with each new opportunity that comes my way.
I hope that you are taking time to take in some summer. Whether that be sitting on the patio reading a book, or simply sipping a cup of ice coffee on a hot summer day.
Life is precious and best enjoyed when we slow down and stop to smell the flowers. A slow down intertwined with busy fast paced life will not only feed your psyche, but allow you to appreciate the little things a bit more.
We offer weekly updates on The Soap Maker's Blog. We have a link at the bottom of this page or you can click here.
Best wishes for a happy summer!

Behind the scenes
It's exciting to be writing both a cookbook and faith book! I'm happy to announce that both books will be hitting the shelves in early twenty-three. My family is filled with a long line of amazing cooks. My grandmother Lola owned a restaurant during the depression, and my mom was a great cook. I'm excited to share my family recipes along with fresh ingredient meals and easy to prepare foods that you can make in your own kitchen. All of the recipes have been seasoned with love!

It's so exciting to be celebrating twenty-five years at Bittersweet in April!
Honestly, the time has flown by, and it almost seems surreal to be coming upon this milestone.
I can remember like yesterday making my first batch of soap. So much has changed, but one thing remains the same. My passion continues to grow, and it's exciting to share new scents, products, and designs.
Each season fades away and a new one takes its place. Knowing that it just keeps getting better is a reward on its own.
I look forward to curating new collections and sharing aromatic new soaps, sundries, and skincare.
The best is yet to come!
Blessings of love.
