Reindeer poo soap!

New for this Holiday season, Reindeer poo soap. Here is the little poem that goes along with our Reindeer poo soap. The perfect gift for that person in your life that's been extra naughty this year.

Santa saved a precious gift and it's especially for you. Just a little something extra and it comes from Rudolph,too!

He knows that you've been naughty instead of being nice. Once again you're on the bad list and he's checked it over twice.

Santa hopes this little poem doesn't throw you for a loop. All your getting this year is a bunch of reindeer poop!

Christmas is coming!

We have been very buisey here at Ariel's Secret Garden, here are a few pictures of some of the goodies for this Holiday season. We have new loaf molds in cupcake , gingerbread man and teddy bear shapes. All these new loaf's are appox. 3/4 LBS. in size. The cupcake loaf is my favorite and just so happen's to be the biggest of the three new shapes. I have played with some hand painting on the cupcake loaves with micas and water and they came out very cute and festive looking. The teddy bears are adorable, we made multi color Rock star dupe bears and brown color bears Hippy Christmas bears.

Our Bob the gingerbread man comes in all of our new Holiday scents as well. Bob comes in the large loaf size and mini Bob size approx. 3oz.!

Organic Jojoba oil!

Aura Cacia Organics 100% pure vegetable oils are extracted from natural botanical sources. In addition to their soothing and protecting properties, these oils are highly valued for their ability to nourish the skin with antioxidants and natural vitamins. This is the only oil used in my roll on perfumes aside from the fragrance and Essential oils used to add scent. You can feel the richness as soon as it's applied. Sure it cost a bit more to make it this way but the skin benefits greatly out weigh the cost and a little bit really does go a long way. Simply just apply to your pressure points on the inside of your wrists, the backs of your knee's, inner for arm and neck!

there is always another chance for you.
You may have a fresh start at any moment
you choose, for this thing we call "failure" is not
the falling down, but the staying down.
