We're All Internet Shoppers These Days...

Posted by Bold Commerce Collaborator on

I don't know about you, but right now, I hate shopping. Masks and gloves, and worries about other people getting too close. It's a mess out there these days. I have found my habits shifting online more and more!

It seems like a good time to plug our subscription box - Club Bon Air Naturals. Our $42, bi-monthly box includes shipping and a smattering of goodies that can be used to pamper yourself. Or break the box out into little gifts for friends! We also tuck in a coupon for you as well. 

We've already shipped this Month's goodies, but have some waiting in the wings for any new subscribers. Sign up anytime between now and July 15th, and we will send you the current box. After July 15th, we'll lump you in with our next round of shipments in August instead. 

I hope you and your families are hanging in there. I know times are confusing and hard, and full of big decisions. As a family we are mulling many scenarios about work and school, and not coming up with a lot of answers. I am looking at when to head back out to South of the James Market, and hope to be back in action by the end of July. I'll be sure to let you know, when I know! Seems like things are always changing.  In the meantime, be safe and well!

A Strange Time...

Posted by Leslie Arthur on

To My Customers,

As we begin to feel the true nature of these times, it is my pleasure to step up and help our community. Whether it’s providing a little something special to turn your shower into a spa, or literally providing a basic necessity for your family, I am here. 

If you have ordered from our Clean Essentials line, please know that the recipes used have been heavily researched and vetted. The packing however was put together quickly and with what I already had on hand. Fully developing a line takes a lot of time, and that my friend, is something I am realizing we do not have the luxury of. My soaps have been in gift shops in Paris and New York. They have been shipped to all corners of the country, and have even glanced the pages of Better Homes and Gardens. For now though, I will focus on providing our community with options that keep our families safe.

My general plan for this company is to move things in a direction that will really be appealing to those looking to treat themselves, or gift something really fun and unique. I am hopeful and am continuing to work on our new gift oriented line. Some of the new treats are even online already! And the others will come soon. But in this time of uncertainty I will do what I can to provide simple options we can all use. Sourcing ingredients is becoming laborious and expensive, but I am committed to social distancing and doing what I can to help.

Be well, stay safe, and I am so very grateful for your support at this time.

Find Time For Yourself

Posted by Bold Commerce Collaborator on

Anyone else ever feel a little down this time of year?  It's cold as hell, kind of gray, and perhaps you even have a bit of a lingering Christmas bloat.  I feel ya...big time. You can even ask "My Fitness Pal"...the app that has become my new best friend. As we get fully into the swing of the new year, I have updated the website, and we are back in action. Let me know if you need anything to help get a little of that quintessential "Me" time that is so hard to find.

Why I'm Writing

Small Business Owner. Mom. Wife. Friend. Me. Oops, did i write "Me" last?

If you are looking for a blog purely about soap, stop reading. Running this business is an elephant sized juggling act. Some days are sweeter than anything, others are a giant mess. This is where i just might let it all hang out. Life is like that, isn't it? Everything has a good, a bad, an even keel. Chime in when you can...
