New Soaps

Enjoy a little preview of some of our latest soaps along with the first of our holiday 2006 offerings.

Tuesday, September 26, 2006

You are AMAZING!

We have received some of the most incredible soap name suggestions for our What's-in-a-Name Contest! We never realized soap could bring out such creativity in people. :) We are definitely going to have a difficult challenge in narrowing these down. But don't let that stop you - keep sending in those submissions!

And in the spirit of creative soap names, here are two of our latest. See if you can figure them out!

  • Killer Rabbit

  • Bring Me a Shrubbery!

Have fun!

What's in a Name?

Okie doke. As some of you have noticed, we like to give our soaps some rather, ahem, imaginative (we like to think creative) names. So, the question has come up a few times about the origins of some of our soap names. And we do admit, names like Sterno Bum, Gutter Snipe, Stupid Llamas , and Atticus in Argyle may beg that question.

Well, the secret is we like movies. Some of the time it's stupid or silly movies, but mostly it's just plain old good entertainment. If something strikes our fancy or inspires us, you can bet we'll find a way to make a soap name out of it. Case in point, two of our latest soaps are Don't Call Me Shirley and He Hates these Cans! Can you figure out the references?

So where is this going? We would like to give our customers and readers the chance to submit some name suggestions for a new soap for our 2007 line. Send us your best ideas - keep it clean ;) and include where you got the inspiration, ie. the movie name or show title. We'll choose our top five favorites and post them in a poll on our blog on November 1st for readers to vote on. The person who submitted the name that earns the most votes will win 3 bars of the newly named soap as soon as it joins our product line.

So put on those thinking caps and when you're ready click here to use our website contact form to submit your suggestion. Feel free to submit as many as you like! Remember, we need your name, your idea, and where the idea came from. Please include your email so we can get in touch with you in case your suggestion wins. We'll collect your ideas through October 31st, choose our five favorites, and then post the poll for the voting on Nov 1st. We'll announce the winning name Nov 15th. Have fun!

Note: We are a family-friendly website. Any offensive or inappropriate suggestions will not be considered. So keep it clean folks! Thanks!

A little bit of fine print: No purchase necessary to participate or win. This contest is offered only in the United States and is open to legal U.S. residents, 18 years of age and older with a valid email account. Void where prohibited or restricted by law. Flower Peddler reserves the right to judge entries based on appeal and appropriateness. Suitability for actual use is a requirement of all entries. We reserve the right to use any entry, not just the winner's for future products. All entries must be submitted by email. By submitting any suggestion to Flower Peddler, you hereby grant to Flower Peddler and its affiliates, subsidiaries, licensees and assigns, an irrevocable, perpetual and royalty-free right to use the submitted name suggestion or other information in any and all media, whether now known or hereinafter created, throughout the world and for any purpose. Winner will be chosen based on poll results and will be notified by email only. Winner has 10 (ten) days to respond or prize will be forfeited. Flower Peddler is not required to award elsewhere any prize forfeited by the chosen winner. The prize is not redeemable in cash and must be accepted as awarded. Prize will be shipped at Flower Peddler's expense.

The answer is... Yes!

Yes, we do own a calendar. As many of you have pointed out, Labor Day Weekend has passed, and we have still not posted our fall product line. We just can't rush perfection! :)
We have a bit more tweaking to do to make sure everything is ready to go. PLUS, we had to find figs. Ooops! Did we give something away?! Don't worry. It won't be much longer.

What are we enjoying right now?

Sometimes we actually take a break from soap to enjoy other things. Now before you pass out laughing - Yes! It really is true! So what is it that we are enjoying right now you ask? TEA! More specifically tea from We first ran across SBSTeas a couple years ago when we were planning a tea party (yes really) for a family member's birthday. Ya know, one of those special kind of birthdays that ends in a "0". Rachel was fantastic in helping us pick out a variety of teas that would appeal to our guest list whose ages ranged from 1 to 75 - not an easy task! And that's one of the things we especially like about Rachel's teas. She has teas that kids like, teas for novices, experts, wannabe experts. :) She carries all the nifty gadgets you need to brew a proper pot of tea and complete and easy to understand brewing instructions on the packages. I never knew that you could overbrew tea. That's why it sometimes tastes bitter. AHA!

So now you want to know which ones are our personal favorites? Well, the top five for us are:

If you are sitting there thinking you are a die-hard coffee drinker, you really owe it to yourself to give these teas a try. You will not be disappointed!
Go get some!

Saturday, August 05, 2006

Get ready!

They're coming! Three fantastic new products launching this week! You've written to us; you've called asking what these new products are going to be. So...we're giving our blog readers a little preview.

  • Himalayan Rose Salt Glow - a luxurious body scrub made with pink himalayan salt, rose clay, shea butter, and coconut oil. The gorgeous salt in this scrub is a fossil marine salt that is rich in minerals including calcium, magnesium, potassium, copper, and iron which gives the salt its beautiful speckled pink color. It comes from the Himalayan Mountains at altitudes of over 10,000 feet. The salt is the principle income for the people of the area where it is transported down the mountains once a year to the Nepalese valleys by caravans of yaks. This beautiful salt blended with the rich butters and oils makes a thick and creamy salt glow that is enhanced by a luscious, complex fragrance combination including rose, sandalwood, anise, and musk. Your skin will feel silky smooth and soft and deliciously fragranced!

  • Hala Kahiki Sugar Cane Body Smoother - This is tropical island luxury in a jar! We blended pure cane sugar with rich, smooth macadamia nut butter and delicious extra virgin coconut oil for a creamy and decadent skin treat. Fragrance notes of guava, pineapple, coconut, and lei flowers will greet your nose when you open the jar. The rich oils and butters will help condition your skin as the formula rinses clean to leave behind just the right amount of skin-softening moisture.

  • Coconut Silk Bath Crystals - Gorgeous, mineral-rich Dead Sea salts blended with luscious coconut milk, and kukui nut oil for skin-softening bath bliss. Research has shown that Dead Sea salts can be effective in alleviating skin conditions such as psoriasis and is also highly beneficial for relieving muscle tension. This harmonizing infusion will help detoxify and refine skin tone while it cleanses and soothes for a relaxing and rejuvenating experience. Available in fragrances from our Petals Collection.

And for those of you have been asking about fall fragrances, here's a peek at some we are working on:

- Fuji Applejack
- Spiced Pumpkin Creme
- Figs & Frankincense
- Harvest Moon
- Fall Festival
- Oak Leaves & Acorns

Let us know what you think!

April is Autism Awareness Month

 autism ribbon April is National Autism Awareness Month. One in 500 children are affected by autism and related disorders, impacting over 400,000 families in the U.S. alone. Autism is the third most prevalent developmental disorder in the world. If you don't know someone with autism, you will soon. Autism is the fastest-growing developmental disability in the United States. A child is diagnosed with autism every 21 minutes.

For those of us living with autism, the reality of this heartbreaking disorder occupies a monumental proportion of our time, thoughts and energy. And we are exhausted. During April, we reach out to our families, friends, neighbors, business leaders and politicians to take up our cause. It's our opportunity to help them understand our children and the crisis of autism affecting our nation.

Two more!

Our latest soap additions for your reading pleasure:

Virginia Dogwood soap - Lovely, sweet, and bright with a blend of delicate florals including jasmine and violet and a light touch of woods, this soap has surprising unisex appeal! Dogwood is a beautiful tree that flowers in spring with either white or pink blossoms and then displays red berries throughout fall and winter. We think we've captured the beautiful fragrance of our state tree in this luxury soap. We hope you'll agree!

Mountain Heather soap - This soap has the most heavenly fragrance and has become our new favorite for spring! Don't be fooled into thinking this is just a floral soap. The scent is brisk, bright, and unassuming leaning more towards being unisex than strictly feminine. Made up of gorgeous hyacinth, heather, and a little touch of herbal freshness, this soap will remind you of an early spring garden stroll. Enhanced with shea butter and sweet almond oil then dotted with lavender buds, you can't go wrong with this one!

2006 Soaps

The first of our 2006 soaps are now available.

Atticus in Argyle soap - Masculine, sporty, and very sexy - this luxury soap with cocoa butter, olive, and hemp seed oils has a fantastic refined fragrance. Scented with French verbena, lemon, sandalwood, ambergris, and a green touch of iris and violet leaves for a very upscale and refined olfactory treat.

Aztec Gold soap
- An incredible, balanced fragrance blend highlights this exotic soap which is enhanced by cocoa and shea butters. The scent is a mesmerizing blend of spices, fruits, and woods including sandalwood, patchouli, and musk. A sweet heart of warm and sunny citrus is topped with vanilla and Mexican chocolate and just a hint of nutmeg. A gorgeous turquoise color is swirled with gold mica throughout to make a mysterious, sweet and exotic bath bar.

Drama Queen soap
- Ahh, the Drama Queen - the person who always needs to be the center of attention, who thinks the universe revolves around her, and manages to have the absolute worst luck in the world. And when you really get to know her, she usually turns out to be a fragile, delicate creature who wilts at the slightest touch of frost. Remind you of anyone? Reminds us of the Queen of the flowers, the rose. We've created a gorgeous, soothing bar that stars the fragrance of Bulgarian rose with lovely freesia, and slight nuances of jasmine and violets. The combination makes a sweet, beguiling soap with delicate fragance and some dramatic color thrown in just for fun.

Kiss My Karma soap
- Hypnotic and sensual - maybe a little bit karmic, this gorgeous bath bar with shea butter and hempseed oil will kiss your skin with wonderful moisture and fragrance. The scent is made up of a blend of patchouli, sweet orange, lavendin, pine, and lemongrass with notes of amber, incense and musk for a completely cosmic bathing experience.

Medicine Lodge soap
- Gorgeous, earthy bar reminiscent of the southwest. Beautiful notes of sage, Canadian fir needle, cedarleaf, and oakmoss are sweetened by fresh, bright sweetgrass for a soothing, purifying combination in a lovely shea butter soap.

Prince of Darkness soap - This wonderful soap has a dark, smoldering, and complex fragrance that is trumped only by the addition of real charcoal to the bar. Charcoal is thought to have absorbent abilities to rid the skin of impurities and bacteria to really deep clean. The incredible fragrance is made up of vetiver, patchouli, myrrh, herbs, and anise giving it wonderful unisex appeal.

Wicked Woman soap - Is she a wicked woman or maybe just a little mystical and mysterious? You may be asking yourself the same thing about this wonderful, sultry soap once you get a whiff of its unique fragrance. With all the allure of a mystical spell this complex scent is firmly grounded with woods including sandalwood and Moroccan Thyine wood, and accented with Egytpian Musk and exotic spices. Then she changes ever so slightly to include red tea, rose, Mexican torch flower, and French Mimosa before moving on to bright valencia orange and Sicilian lemon. A gorgeous, unique fragrance that is very sensual and maybe just a little wicked!

Wild Monkey Love soap - In a word - yum! With shea and cocoa butters, sweet almond oil and an incredible nanner puddin' fragrance, how can you go wrong? Adults and kids alike will love this fun bath bar that's just the perfect ripe banana color and sprinkled with pretty calendula petals.

Winter Solstice soap - Warm and woodsy and a little smoky - like a winter evening in front of the fireplace, this soap has a gorgeous comforting fragrance that is sure to be a family pleaser. Tangy fruits, pine, and a little bit of spice combine with our luxury oil recipe to create a winning bar of soap.

Watch for more soon!

Because you asked!

New exclusive Flower Peddler fragrances are joining our growing list! And.... here are the descriptions you've been asking for:

Masquerade - This is a very unusual blend of woods, herbs, a touch of rose, and a hint of chocolate that results in an entirely sexy combination. With a heart of sandalwood, musk, and rosewood, subtle notes of sweetgrass, oakmoss and a little twist of rose geranium, chocolate, and anise, this fragrance will have you guessing - is it for him or is it for her? We'll give you a hint; it can masquerade as either.

Mystique - Lush, green, floral, and ultimately feminine! This fragrance blooms with a complex combination of gardenia, lilac, and jasmine followed by middle notes of thyme and pine with a drydown of oakmoss, vetiver, sandalwood, and musk. Gorgeous and vibrant!

Vanilla Vanity - Sensual and luscious blend of rich vanilla bean, amber, musk, and a touch of rose geranium. Irresistible!

Calypso - Warm, citrusy, fresh, and crisp with a heart of tropical fruits including papaya, yuzu, fig, and mango, middle notes of patchouli, sandalwood, and amber, and just a touch of rum and spice. Hey man, I'm on vacation!
(available March 1st)

Calliope - This fragrance will remind you of fluffy, pink cotton candy, juicy bubblegum, candy red apples, and other childhood pleasures found at the circus. Yummy!
(available March 1st)

Typhoon - Rugged, fresh, outdoorsy fragrance made up of top notes of ozone, citrus, and lavender followed by a surprising floral heart of muguet and rose offset by notes of woods, musk, and a hint of clove. You can almost smell the salt air and driftwood!
(available March 1st)

Forest Flower - Powerfully sexy, romantic and dreamy - a beautiful balance of woods and florals. Topnotes of tuberose, gardenia, and jasmine are blended with amber, vanilla, patchouli, peru balsam, and frankincense and myrrh for a very smooth, rich floral that is slightly exotic and very long lasting.
(available March 1st)
