Maybe it can't be summer forever, but we can take in each and every drop of it why it's here!
Bittersweet is excited to introduce our new summer soaps.
Indigo Summer, The Meadow, Summer Breeze, are a few early releases.
Each one, mellow like summer.
In the weeks to come, we will continue to add to our summer soap menu, and we posted a chronology on our scent of the month page.
We've introduced pure rose-hip oil and our new cardamom creme is nothing short of amazing!
We've planted Sweet Grass in the garden and the tiny zinnia plants are headed towards the sun.
So June Bug, it's looking like an exciting month!

The days will soon be filled with gentle southern breezes and warm summer nights. The cricket orchestra will strum their happy tunes. Thoughts of rising early to gather freshly cut bouquets put a smile on my face. Sorting through my closet to draw out white summer dresses and linen tops help get me in the summer mood.
Summer is just around the corner and Bittersweet is eager to share our newest products and lines as the new season begins to bloom.
We've sifted through our suppliers to bring you the finest quality and latest looks that we believe you're gong to love. Straw hats, summer stripes, bangles, and indigo are but a few of our latest offerings at our brick and mortar shop.
We're working on new skin care formulations and continually searching for pure organic materials that are not only chemical free, but game changers for your skin.
This past April we celebrated a twenty-two year anniversary!
I'm proud to say, that I'm even more passionate about creating clean skin care products today than I was in 1997!
It's an honor and privilege to serve you!
The peonies are blooming! It's a season for planting and sowing and cultivating both in life and in the garden. I believe that it's the little things in life that bring the most rewarding moments, and that the sweetest memories are formed from the simplest moments.
Wishing you the best.
Bittersweet launched the soap maker's blog in 2006! I enjoy sharing bits and pieces about soap making and managing an apothecary business.
The month of April marks our twenty-second anniversary!
Honestly, I really can't believe how fast time goes.
I guess it feels like it's been twenty-two years only because so many things have changed since we were born.
Packaging has definitely seen revisions time and time again. Learning new methods of business continues to advance, and nothing stays the same. That's a good thing!
One thing that remains steady is my passion to create the best skin care products.
I enjoy leaping forward and embracing the Bittersweet moments. Some good, some have been bad, but all have molded this little soap making business into reaching beyond my wildest dreams!
If you get a chance, pop over to "the soap maker's blog", and travel back in time to see how it all transformed over the past twenty-two years.
Wishing you blessings and good thoughts.

Spring is a great time to stop and smell the flowers. At the modern apothecary shop, we're hand picking soft faded hues for soap wrapping and designs.
We're anxiously awaiting the tulips, violets, and red buds to unveil their glorious beauty.
The past few days I've been clearing and tidying up at both our home and the shop.
We're starting some remodeling projects at our home and I'll be excited when we start installing new fixtures and get close to the end of the construction.
The shop is experiencing a Hygge phenomenon. Practicing Hygge is not limited to winter. You can enjoy the gratifying moments year round!
The grass is beginning to turn green and I'm itching to plant my stash of zinnia seeds.
We've turned over the calendar to thee merry month of March.
