essential oils.....
« on: April 18, 2011, 03:04:54 PM »

Good morning lovely ladies,

I am considering starting a small home run business of fragrant soaps, bathbombs, reed diffusers etc.
I would welcome any advice from you, anything at all. 
I also need a name
If you are able to suggest a name I decide to go with, providing you want me to send to you, I will send you a selection of my goods.

thankyou very much

I will have to put on my thinking cap and see what I can come up with.

Will tell you a funny story about my DH and his soap makings.  One of his hobbies is making soap.  He's done a lot of experimenting and we give his soap to friends/family, etc.  I was having a gathering of my friends once and made up little bags of his soap and gave them all a bag.  A few days later, one friend of mine called and said "Tell Mr. J that I don't stink no mo."  So, that is our funny name for his soap making enterprise - Mr. J's Stink No Mo Soap.

I know you want something much more exotic than that though!

That is so exciting!  Are you planning on doing a website?  I'm going to have to think on some names too, all that comes immediately to mind are corny Aussie jokes lol.

Hi Julie,

Do you have a wholesale source for supplies?  I use a good company that has quality  essential oils, etc.

Soap on a rope is a huge joke in the men's bathing areas.. but we won't go there.

Are you looking for something that indicates your location?

yeah it was pretty bad but good try.....

I have just been in the garden gathering ingredients for my potpourri
Rosemary, lavender, pine nuts, cadagi seeds, seed pods of all kinds , cones, gorgeous white bark, roses, bottlebrush, Grevillia.  It is amazing what lovely seeds pods are on the eucalyptus.    I did enjoy it.     My 2 girls 14 and 18 have just left in dd car to see friends in town.    58k's on a very quiet stretch of road and they won't be home until 11.00 tonight.....dd hit a kangaroo on her maiden voyage a few months ago,,,now I will worry until they get home!!

Do you have any kind of icon or branding image you're going to use?  Color?  It will give me a little more of an idea to narrow it down.

i really want a bathbomb
