More Treasuries!

It looks like frog loves monkey has been included in ELEVEN treasuries over on Etsy.  That's actually really flattering. :)

Here are a few that I missed posting on the blog.

Thanks for the inclusion, everyone!

Body Scrubs

Thanks to the success of our soaps (and, let's be honest, all the great pictures on Pintrest), I decided awhile ago to dabble in body scrubs.  This is one of those areas where R&D ended up being a whole lot of fun.  I did a lot of reading up on the subject, looked at a ton of really pretty pictures, took a whole bunch of notes, gathered some supplies and spent an afternoon with my mom and sister, mixing things up and testing them out.  It was a blast.  We discovered some ingredients that should *never* be mixed together, but also found some combinations that we really liked.

Here are the best, currently available in the Etsy store:

(The low down: All of these scrubs are made from 100% all natural ingredients, no chemicals or yucky preservatives.  They include skin-safe essential oils and, in some instances, plant-based colorants. They wouldn't taste good, but are safe enough to eat.  Full ingredient lists are included on the packaging or are available upon request.  Packaged in 4 oz shower-safe jars.)

Vanilla Brown Sugar Scrub 

This one is my personal favorite.  It smells so good and leaves my skin SO soft and smooth!

Peppermint Sugar Scrub

This one's a great wake-me-up, for your senses and your skin.  Especially nice for use on legs and feet.

Orange Sugar Scrub

This is another that's going to wake up your senses - a nice splash of citrus to start off your day.

Lemon Sea Salt Scrub

Sugar scrubs are great, but sometimes a good salt scrub is really what you need.

And, just in case none of these flavors grab you, we have several other flavors in the works - including a really interesting coffee combination.

Oh, Hello!

Wow, I've been a really crummy blogger!  Hopefully, updating with some recent coolness will make up for it?

First, some big news - for me, anyway, is that frog loves monkey is no longer a solo operation.  (Well, that's assuming that my husband has been doing grunt work for no credit.  Poor guy.)  My mom, Sally, has officially joined the team and is already cooking up some super cute goodies.  I'm looking forward to taking some pictures tomorrow. :)

Next, we're gearing up for a trunk show!  It's going to be at Henny & Ev in Glendale on March 3rd and we're SO exited.  Also working very hard to have some really cute offerings and a greatly expanded line.

And lastly, along with the trunk show, I've been working to get the dedicated website up and running again.  It's not quite there yet, but soon.  It should be ready to go by the trunk show. :)

And now, I'm off again to try to get my kids to seep so that I can get some of the more tedious, little, "boring" things done... ;)
