We love fall so much that it's hard to wait to start making all those festive fall goodies! We have some classic scents that we are excited about making (we're looking at you Autumn Fig Harvest and Pumpkin Spice!) plus some new ones to add to our fall line-up! Here's what you can look forward to.
Rich and alluring, this scent is the perfect mix of warm sandalwood and creamy vanilla.
Hickory and Suede
This warm and cozy scent has notes of bergamot, leather, lavender, geranium, cypress, and sandalwood. It finishes with notes of suede, spiced musk, and tobacco.
A refreshing blend of sweet, juicy apple and herbaceous sage. Top notes of pineapple mingle with a touch of coconut water and a rich, earthy base. This fragrance is sweet, fresh and mouthwatering!
This scent is the perfect mix of fresh and spicy. It starts with notes of elemi, coriander, ginger, black pepper, lavender, and oakmoss. Base notes of cedarwood, patchouli, amber, and clove add earthiness and complexity.
This earthy, fresh scent is a blend of lemon, grass, bergamot, lilac, cedarwood, resin, frankincense, and musk.
We will still be making those tried-and-true fall scents that you've come to enjoy over the years -- our Classic Fall Collection.

Often the simplest things are the best, and that's definitely the case with our body oil blend! Sometimes when we are at a market, a customer will ask me (Polly) what my favorite product is. Without hesitation, I always point to our body oil blend. Maybe it is easily overlooked because the assumption may be that an oil would be... well... oily! We are happy to let you know that it absorbs so well that it won't leave your skin feeling greasy or oily.
Here's why we love this body oil blend so much!
How Does This Compare to Baby Oil?
When it comes to moisturizing your skin with an oil, perhaps there's nothing more commonly known than commercially-produced baby oil. It's made by a number of manufacturers and marketed as a clean, pure, and gentle product. And seriously, who doesn't want skin as soft as a baby's skin, right?! Here's the difference. Baby oil is perfumed mineral oil. Mineral oil is a by-product of processing and refining crude oil. This means that mineral oil is a petroleum-based product. "Fragrance-free" petroleum-based products almost always have some type of fragrance in them to counter the bad scent from the production of the product itself. Mineral oil is a general term used to describe a variety of weights and grades of the crude-oil by-product. Some of it is more refined and food-safe, such as the mineral oil used to treat wooden cutting boards. It is used as a lubricant and even as a treatment for constipation!
Another notable consideration is that mineral oil is not biodegradable. We love using plant-based oils and natural emollients (such as lanolin as opposed to petroleum jelly) and we're happy with the non-petrolatum products that we make!
Our body oil blend is such a hard-working, luxurious, and versatile product. We'd love to offer you a 20% off coupon code if you'd like to give this a try. Use the code BODYOIL20 to receive 20% off our body oil blends for the month of August on our website here.
We put together a graphic to help you understand the differences between our body oil blend and traditional baby oil.
How has your summer been going? Attending four farmer's markets a week and making all our products really keeps us busy! We have already started making a few fall-scented products -- more about that later! Here's what else we've been up to this summer.
If you enjoy a country drive with great views, try heading up to Utica and visiting Branstool Orchards! We are happy to partner with Branstool this season. They are best known for their peach orchards, but they also have delicious apples and pears. And if you'd rather pick your produce yourself, they also offer U-pick hours. You can find a variety of produce and gift items in their market.
We've stocked their shelves with our most popular summer scents, including Southern Peach! You can get more info from their facebook page here.
