New Autumn Seasonals Are Here!

The Autumn Newsletter 2015 just swooshed it's way to mailboxes everywhere. It only makes sense to post it here too!

Dear Friends,

See what's on the menu for Autumn. Random Suds Blog | Soapworks Studio

And just like that (snaps fingers) our hot, glorious summer has exited stage left. With a stiff gust of wind, stormy skies, and pelting raindrops, blustery autumn makes an entrance. The winds of  change bring back our "usual" weather in the Pacific Northwest - chilly, breezy, drizzly. And for most of us, it's like welcoming back an old friend.

Summer vacations settle into happy memories as we welcome the familiar routines of back-to-school and return to work. Fall shoos us indoors, to familiar comforts of snuggly couch blankies, cozy sweaters, steaming mugs, hours spent in front of a crackling fire. There is a sense of contentment that autumn carries, just one of its many gifts.


Autumn's cool, crisp air crystallizes our senses, making the scents and colors of the harvest season even more magical. This year's autumn harvest seasonal soaps are brimming with the very best fruits and spices of the season. ($4.50 each)


Vanilla Pear: Juicy, sweet, ripe yellow pear and warm vanilla bean combine for a decadent treat. This is a luscious fragrance that celebrates the very best of autumn.

Cranberry Harvest: This is the much-loved cranberry soap that people wait all year for. Tart cranberry, a splash of apple cider plus a few other magical things, like cinnamon spice, orange peel, straw bales and plaid blankets. Well at least a couple of those things, but you'll be thinking of all of them while sniffing this one.

Pumpkin Cinnamon: Pumpkin, cinnamon and sugar are inseparable friends. This much loved trio makes all your favorite fall treats - pie, cookies, cake and that inevitable latte too. This fragrance blend is a dollop of pumpkin, with oodles of cinnamon goodness and a heaping spoonful of vanilla sugar.

Apple Spice: Delicious apple cider, cinnamon, clove and nutmeg - so much apple-y goodness, it's bound to be your new fall favorite.


Hellllloooo, it's not too early to start spritzing a little festive spicy holiday spirit around the house! Holiday Spice is our most requested seasonal spray, every year since the very beginning. Oranges, cranberries, spices and greens all blend together for the perfect scent of magic and delight. (4 oz bottle - $6.00)


What nicer way to pamper yourself on a chilly, dark, rainy evening than a soak in a luscious hot bath? Our Dead Sea Bath Salts have so many benefits - for health and for beauty - skin soothing, detoxing, and definitely relaxing. Three new heavenly fragrances to calm stress and bring peace to your soul? Yes, please. A soak in these pretty autumn bath salts is just the ticket. (16 oz bottle - $8.00)


Rose Petals & Cardamom - Gorgeous rose petals are the ultimate bath luxury, but a hint of spice makes this scent extraordinary and sophisticated.

Bourbon Sandalwood - Beautiful Indonesian sandalwood blended with elegant Bourbon Vanilla, exotic and warming.

Sweet Fig - Ripe, juicy fig marries sweet French vanilla for the perfect fall couple. This is a luscious autumn fruit fragrance.


I know it's hard to grasp, but the holiday season is heading your way in just a few short months. I've got a full schedule of shows, fairs and festivals lined up - bringing the goodies to your neck of the woods just in time for holiday shopping. You can find my complete schedule under the "Events" tab, or on the Facebook page under "Events" also. Looking forward to seeing as many of you as possible during my holiday tour!

Of course you can always do a little finger-tip shopping on the always-open, new website too. Save the hassle of traffic and parking, and have that box of goodies on your doorstep in no time!

As always, I gratefully appreciate your loyal business throughout the year, and wish you a brilliant and abundant harvest season!
