HAPPY HOLIDAYS FROM NATURE'S EMPORIUM CHEROKEE SOAP CO!!

I have had a hard time blogging through these elections! A wise one explained I should never discuss politics as it would hurt my business. lol  I'm not wise. I'm a Woman, a Mother, I am Native American, I have best of friends and family from every race there is. My boys are half Black... and I love the gays! I love love love and I have a dream of a President who loves the world as much as I do. Some of my friends call me a flaming Liberal. ha! and most of the friends who call me that are the most conservative Republicans I know, and they giggle while they say that and hug me... I have a really good life! and boy do I love to vote but this year was the wildest ride I've ever seen.

I just keep praying and supporting Standing Rock. Please call Barrack Obama and ask him to stop the pipeline from going through sacred land to the Standing Rock Sioux. Also tell him you would appreciate clean water going through your land as it is sacred too! We are donating weekly to Standing Rock ~ Thank you for supporting our cause!

Our Feliz Navidad is flying off the shelf, we have made over 200 products in the past 2 weeks. It is a rich Vanilla Bean with a twist of Navidad. The scent makes me feel good, and it must be the feel good scent for many.  

I'm not gonna lie, I get excited to take a shower this time of year just because of Cookies For Santa... that stuff turns me into a big ol happy kid again!

 

Our Iced Pine candles are so delicious! I am burning one now, I don't think I'm going to need a Christmas Tree... it smells so real, we may just put our gifts around a candle! lol No but really, it's good!

I have great hope for all people ~ I pray for a holiday season that inspires us to love and forgive one another and to have the realization that it's not anything that makes this world go round but living a life of integrity, love, prayer and supporting one another. and WATER IS LIFE! It is the season for miracles ~ I believe we can still get them ~ So, make bridges and extend your hand to all people. Let's make America great for the first time, it's up to us, the majority. and please, if you see a bully, speak up, find your voice, stop them in their tracks, let's PROTECT and SUPPORT one another. Surely, we have evolved enough to at the very least do that. Right? 

Our slogan is TAKE A BATH ~ we believe that is the most healing ceremony one can do for themselves and the world. The Cherokee go to water to cleanse their body & souls. To wash away the day and negativity to go about the day in a new body and mind. Take a shower, dance in the rain, wash all those horrible feelings down the drain... and LIVE!

We truly appreciate you ~ I feel so connected to so many of you and think of you as good friends. I am so thrilled with the exchanges we get to have between one another and yes, many of you have become my very good friend whom I have the privilege of knowing and being your personal soap maker. 

One more thing! K2 and Josh took this year to work on their creativity. So, in exchange, K2 has to make a whole lot of soap and Josh has to cut a whole lot of soap, but we are all very happy. You are noticing our old style soap that takes a football player to make is popping up more and more! That's because stirring a 5 gallon bucket full of soap is like making cake for K2... lol. We love his soap and are thrilled to have him dancing around the soap pot again a few days a week. (So is my arthritis.. lol) Maya and Kalia stroll through the shop to help daily, still. and our very good friend/intern Maddy is hands on deck also. We all rejoice when you help us pay our rent! lol and THANK YOU FOR THAT! SO MUCH LOVE!

May your Holidays be full of appreciation for that which is important, may you have the blessings of family, friends and love... and don't forget to set your scales back 10 lbs!

With sincerity and love,

Your Cherokee soap makers


Winter is HERE!! January 23 2016, 0 Comments

Nature's Emporium Cherokee Soap Co. is already in full blown soap, candle & lotion making fury and it's the first month of the year! We usually prepare ourselves for the slow down of the Winter, but not this year ~ and we are grateful for that!  As I right this, I imagine the east coast is as slow as it can get with it's turn on Blizzard 2016. I hope everyone is okay and it's just a good weekend of Netflix and Hot Cocoa!

I had an old friend walk in with these fabulous handcrafted cotton wash cloths the other day. They were so pretty and I'm nuts about these things. I immediately went to creating something special for our customers. I thought we would sell a few... We have sold a ton! and everyone who walks into the shop buys the Cherokee Soap & Cloth combo! I am always so happy with life comes together to make everyone happy! Those cloths Grandma used to make are excellent exfoliation and they feel so luxurious! Who knew!? Wonderful for dry Winter skin when combined with our soaps!

Our hopes & dreams for 2016 is good health, good wealth and peace of mind for all ~ we hope our products help keep you happy and calm through this insane election year. Is it here already? lol Here we go!

Thank you for your support ~ I thought I should make a shout out and let ya all know how much I truly appreciate your business and friendship!

Only one more thought...

TAKE A BATH!

(and that's your discount code TAKEABATH!)

May it be a good one ~

Much Love & Soap,
