Name a Soap Contest!

It's no secret we like to have fun with the names of our soaps. Why be "Orange & Patchouli Soap" when you can be "Sterno Bum?" Right? We get the inspiration for our soap names from a variety of places like movies, songs,and cartoons but also from the suggestions of our customers.

So we're holding our third (who knows, it might become an annual thing) "Name the Soap Contest." If you have an awesome suggestion for a soap name leave us a comment on our blog. Make sure you include your contact information in case your suggestion wins. Make as many suggestions as you like, but all must be entered as a comment to this blog. Be creative, but keep it clean please; this is a family website. :) We'll round up our five favorite suggestions and post a poll on our blog for a vote. The winner not only gets the honor of naming a soap for our 2009 line but will also receive 3 bars of their namesake soap after it goes into production next year.

We'll take suggestions up through September 15th and then post the poll on our blog on September 22nd. Poll will end on October 1st. The winner will be the top vote-getter and will be announced on our website October 2nd.

Have fun!

Fall 2008 Product Line Sneak Peek

Our Fall product line is in full production here at Flower Peddler. All items will be available later this month, but we thought you might enjoy a little preview.

We have three terrific fall fragrances we're rolling out including two that are returning by popular demand and one brand new blend. You'll find these fragrances available in our Autumn Petals Lotion, Autumn Sugared Body Polish, and also new this year, a 6 ounce soy candle tin.

  • Enchanted Fig - Gorgeous and exotic golden figs blended with rich Arabian Frankincense and surrounded by green floral notes of jasmine and rose highlighted by sweet peach and musk

  • Naughty Scarecrow - Fall leaves and crisp autumn air resplendent with wild violets balanced by just a touch of rustic pine

  • Fuji Applejack NEW for 2008! - crisp, sweet fresh apple blended with luscious tropical fruits including papaya & mango and a twist of hot, aromatic ginger and a dash of cinnamon for the perfect well-balanced fall scent

Also new this year:

Spiced Pumpkin Cream Sugared Body Polish
This creamy, rich body scrub will add glow and sheen to dull-looking skin by gently polishing away dry skin cells to leave it feeling moisturized and smelling beautiful. Rich pumpkin pulp combined with nourishing pumpkin seed oil help dissolve dull, dead skin cells. Pure cane sugar and a creamy blend of rich oils and skin-loving shea butter are blended with a mouth-watering fragrance combination of pumpkin, warm spices, and whipped cream. This scrub rinses away cleanly to leave no oily residue behind in your tub or shower.

Your favorite fall soaps are being stocked now including Apple Cinnamon, Orange Clove Pomander, Lavender Pumpkins, Saffron & Spicecake, and new this year, Black Mischief. Remember, many of these are limited editions and they move fast. So don't miss out!
