We have lots of great products coming including some yummy Valentines goodies, so stay tuned!!

we're back!

The Ft. Lauderdale show was fantastic! What a show! We met lots of great people and are busy-busy! We took lots of orders, sold a TON (literally I think) of product and have been crazy busy filling orders. Needless to say, our little elves are feverishly working, filling, packing, labeling, mixing, blending and frosting so all of our yummy goodies get out next week. But today, we rest :D

On a different note, our latest scrumptious goodie is Cutie-Fix, our 100% natural cuticle butter in luscious lemon. Perfect for dry cuticles this holiday season.
It's loaded with lots of cuticle-lovin' ingredients like organic fair trade cocoa butter, organic olive oil, sweet almond oil, lemon peel oil and beeswax to seal all the goodness in. We packed it in a BIG 1 oz container that will last and last. A little goes a long way and seriously, keeps your cuticles perfecto!

Happy weekend!

holiday 2010 goodies


Honestly, I know this feeling well. This is usually what I look like, well, without the styled hair & makeup....a few days prior to the holidays.
If you are anything like me, you will sooooooo appreciate how easy we are making it on you this holiday season!!

Lots of scrumptious bath confections we busy little elves have been cooking up in the soap kitchen. Butter cream sugar scrubs in Gingerbread, Sugar Cookie or Hot Apple Cider. These scents are also available in our highly sought after oat milk (gluten-free) lotions.

We have a Holiday Tree room spray that literally flies off the really smells THAT good.

An adorable snowflake lotion bar made with organic and fair trade shea and cocoa butters and organic jojoba oil in the scent of Sugar Cookie.

Adorable gingerbread men made of soap and they smell, literally like you want to take a bite.

Some organic bars of soap in three holiday scents: pumpkin pie with a touch of spice, hot apple cider and winter wonderland which is a sparkling blue peppermint bar. YUM :)

Our seeded soap box that when you plant it grows wildflowers.

And lastly, super cute pre-wrapped gifts containing a slice of organic soap, a butter cream scrub and an oat milk lotion. Holiday shopping made simple.

If you are a wholesale account, just email: and we will send you the holiday order form....for the rest of you yummy lovers, we will be posting these items this coming week on our Etsy site and our website.

tis the season

You can tell the holidays are coming! The temperature is dropping, so we're getting cool, crisp days here in sunny Florida :)
Love this weather- open all your windows, bake some pumpkin bread and soak it all in.

We have been BUSY! We just participated at the LaCita Golf Resort and sold yummy to lots of happy customers- and was also happy to donate some of the proceeds to the Space Coast Cancer Foundation. :)

We've also been busy in the soap kitchen- 200 lbs of lotion, 300 lotion bars and 100 lbs of soap on Friday, not to mention the holiday scrubs: gingerbread, sugar cookie and hot apple cider. LOTS to make, package and get out.

Lately we've playing around with a scrumptious Honey Butter- a fully loaded shea & honey slather, that is super moisturizing and smells like heaven~ Still considering whether to leave it as a mask or add a bit of sugar to make it a scrubby, moisturizing and tasty smelling body scrub.... Hmmmm....we-shall-see! :D

That's the latest- until next time XOXO

honey enzyme heel glaze

Our latest from the soap kitchen, the Honey Pot~ an enzyme honey heel glaze. This stuff smells like cinnamon, clove & nutmeg slathered in honey.
It's loaded with skin softening enzymes, like papaya and pineapple and also lactic acid.

You spoon a little out, and rub all over the bottoms of your feet. Leave it on for a minute or two and then rinse off. You can even add a little sugar to your mix and create an exfoliating scrub.

It comes in a cute little 3 oz jam jar and you can find it on ETSY.

fabulous beekman boys

Have you seen this show on planet green? It IS fabulous! I'm already hooked and pushing for a second season.

The story is basically about Josh & Brent, two city boys that decide to buy a place in Sharon Springs, NY, the Beekman mansion built in 1802 and become organic farmers. They literally had no idea what they were getting themselves into. They have, however, started producing some really nice cheese and goats milk soap.

You will literally lough out loud at the witty comments, not to mention, be amused by the goats, chickens, pigs and the star, a llama named Polka Spot and Farmer John who cares for all of the animals.

It's charming, funny, educational, inspiring and refreshing.

For more about the Fabulous Beekman Boys click here.

peace~love~Beekman or bust!

eco fabulous!

We love~love~love cool eco gifts or perhaps something for little ol' you! If you haven't yet checked out Vivaterra, do so- you'll fall in love.

Check out these fantastic finds from Vivaterra!

Cambodian market feed bag :$17

This will quickly become the only tote you'll tote to the supermarket or farmers' market. It once held a mighty heavy load of grain, so it easily stands up to tomatoes, celery bunches, and anything else that catches your eye. Moreover- and this matters-it looks great, feels totally authentic, and won't resemble any other. 18"W x 12"H x 6"D, 11" STRAPS

Stone hooks: $49

Elements of nature unite to create this clean-lined multi-purpose hook perfect for towels, robes, or clothing. Carefully selected from rivers and beaches of New England and gently rounded through years of tumbling, each stone is unique. And we particularly love that for every smooth stone collected, a rough stone is "planted" for the water to tumble into smoothness.
5"H x 2.5"W

Flip top tote: $98

This lightweight, sturdy bag is sure to quench your thirst for recycled chic. An inventive tote designer collects flip-top tabs from soda can factories and creates a woven metallic fabric in a roomy, flexible bag with wide straps. Constructed entirely from these aluminum flip-tops woven together invisibly with thin, strong cord, her cool tote, all sass and functional fizz, stopped passersby when we recently took it out for a stroll.
15"L x 15"W

Butaca Chair :$1295

Relax in this updated, upholstered version of the Mexican butaca, a hand-built chair inspired by the classic Spanish Barcelona® chair. It’s built entirely from FSC-certified machiche, a tropical Guatemalan hardwood, with well-padded cushions upholstered in either reclaimed jute coffee sacks or organic color-grown cotton fabric in natural. Note: Chair is upholstered in vintage coffee sacks and the print and the color of the print will vary. 30"W x 34"L x 33"H.

Premiere Show 2010

YAY! We just finished our two day exhibit at the Premiere Show in Orlando. It was a success! We talked to so many people, made orders and sold products until our hands were sore and our feet hurt! lol

In the top photo we are missing one of our yummy girls, Jenny, who is getting married this coming weekend and needed a day off to prepare.

A BIG thanks to all the girls for working so very hard this weekend to help make the show a success! XOXO

clean the world

Woot! Woot! Yummy has donated 51 lbs of soap this year to Clean The World! :)

Check out their website, Clean The World

Clean the World is a non-profit that takes donated soaps and distributes them across the globe. They also distribute to more than 20 homeless shelters, women' shelters, food kitchens and missions.

Its tragic to think that many people die simply because of uncleanliness and not having access to something as simple as soap.....well, we felt like we could pitch in and help out.

It warms our little hearts to know that someone, somewhere is using our soap and it's helping all sorts of people, in all sorts of ways.

peace~love~and paying it forward,

pesto pizza

We decided to take a break and make a yummy pesto flat bread pizza! It's super easy and really tasty :)

The tomato slices on top are from our own tomato garden!

*Preheat oven to 425 degrees

You can buy Naan flat bread or thin pizza crusts from your local market. You can also buy pesto sauce or make your own, we made our own:


Flat bread or thin pizza crust
monterey jack cheese

(pesto ingredients)
2 cups fresh basil
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, grated
1/2 cup pine nuts, toasted
4 garlic cloves
1/4 teaspoon salt
couple cracks black pepper
1/2 cup good olive oil


Combine all ingredients in a food processor or blender. Puree until the mixture forms a smooth, thick paste.

Spread a thin layer of pesto on your think pizza or flat bread. Then sprinkle about 1/4 cup of parmesan cheese, then about 3 oz or so of grated monterey jack cheese, then top with thinly sliced tomato.

Put in oven directly on rack in the center of the oven for about 6 minutes or so (watch it, as it depends on your oven.) When the cheese has melted and is all bubbly, it's finished!

It is sooooo tasty- you will LOVE LOVE LOVE this!

soap pops

We, we just HAD to make these again. It's been about a year since we made soap pops, and that was in a non-silicone mold and it was a b**** getting those little suckers out so I said he**-to-the-no on making them again....UNTIL I saw a sweet silicone mold and thought...that'll work! :)

Super cute and a really adorable gift idea!

We also just finished these cute little "Pucker Up" Edible Lip Scrub Sets.
Each set contains a 1 oz brown sugar lip scrub made of organic fair trade cane & brown sugars, oils and butters and you basically scrub on and lick off. I must say, it's pretty yummy! :)

Then you follow with our Vanilla Lip Butter.......SOOOOOOO buttery and leaves your lips so soft, welly, they're like buttah' baby! ;)

Busy Busy little bees in the yummy kitchen and MORE to come, dahlings!!

happy mothers day!

A Mother…

The young mother set her foot on the path of life. "Is this the long way?" she asked. And the guide said "Yes, and the way is hard. And you will be old before you reach the end of it. But the end will be better than the beginning." But the young mother was happy, and she would not believe that anything could be better than these years.

So she played with her children, she fed them and bathed them, and taught them how to tie their shoes and ride a bike and reminded them to feed the dog, and do their homework and brush their teeth. The sun shone on them, and the young Mother cried, "Nothing will ever be lovelier than this."

Then the nights came, and the storms, and the path was sometimes dark, and the children shook with fear and cold, and the mother drew them close and covered them with her arms, and the children said, "Mother, we are not afraid, for you are near, and no harm can come."

And the morning came, and there was a hill ahead, and the children climbed and grew weary, and the mother was weary. But at all times she said to the children, "A little patience and we are there."

So the children climbed, and as they climbed they learned to weather the storms. And with this, she gave them strength to face the world. Year after year, she showed them compassion, understanding, hope, but most of all....unconditional love.

And when they reached the top they said, "Mother, we would not have done it without you."

The days went on, and the weeks and the months and the years, and the mother grew old and she became little and bent. But her children were tall and strong, and walked with courage. And the mother, when she lay down at night, looked up at the stars and said, "This is a better day than the last, for my children have learned so much and are now passing these traits on to their children." And when the way became rough for her, they lifted her, and gave her their strength, just as she had given them hers.

One day they came to a hill, and beyond the hill, they could see a shining road and golden gates flung wide.

And mother said: "I have reached the end of my journey. And now I know the end is better than the beginning, for my children can walk with dignity and pride, with their heads held high, and so can their children after them."

And the children said, " You will always walk with us, Mother, even when you have gone through the gates." And they stood and watched her as she went on alone, and the gates closed after her. And they said: "We cannot see her, but she is with us still. A Mother like ours is more than a memory. She is a living presence."

Your Mother is always with you. She's the whisper of the leaves as you walk down the street, she's the smell of certain foods you remember, flowers you pick and perfume that she wore, she's the cool hand on your brow when you're not feeling well, she's your breath in the air on a cold winters day. She is the sound of the rain that lulls you to sleep, the colors of a rainbow, she is Christmas morning. Your Mother lives inside your laughter. And she's crystallized in every teardrop.

A mother shows every emotion..........happiness, sadness, fear, jealousy, love, hate, anger, helplessness, excitement, joy, sorrow..... and all the while, hoping and praying you will only know the good feelings in life. She's the place you came from, your first home, and she's the map you follow with every step you take. She's your first love, your first friend, even your first enemy, but nothing on earth can separate you. Not time, not space...............not even death!

soap in a sack

We took three of our best selling organic soaps and socked them away in one of our fabulous eco soap bags!

Soap in the sack hangs from your faucet, whether it be in your kitchen or shower. It's natural, biodegradable, fair wage, cotton bag will drip dry and when your soap gets down to a wee little nub, simply drop another bar in.
It reduces waste, takes the place of plastic bottles and is both skin and earth loving.

Comes in three fabulous scents:
Lavender oatmeal- made with oat milk & organic cocoa butter
Spearmint orange- made with coconut milk & organic cocoa butter and
Hot apple cider- made with coconut milk & organic cocoa butter

We've been busy getting 'sets' together for the upcoming Premere Show we're attending in June. The first to hit the scene, the Good Juju Kit! :)

It contains a lavender soap made with coconut milk and tons of cocoa butter, a relaxing lavender aromatherapy mist and a natural cotton eco soap bag!

Needless to say, we've been a wee bit busy! More to come SOON!!!!

food inc.

"more than a terrific movie, an important movie"

I saw this documentary this weekend (ordered it from Netflix) and I must is another eye-opening experience for me.

It began with watching the show, The Food Revolution with Jamie Kennedy ...which totally grossed me out.....chicken nuggets have forever lost their appeal!! BLAK!!!!

This documentary, Food Inc. is really informative and makes you seriously question the food choices you make and actually is a bit frightening.

We can cover our eyes and not want to see, but seeing it will change the way you view your food. I promise.

As the film says, you get three chances to vote daily and I'm voting!

~Buying local and in season products
~Buying no hormone/antibiotic meats & eggs & FREE RANGE
~Buying organic milk & eggs
~And eating real foods

If you haven't seen the film, see it. If you have, what did you think?

peace~love~and sharing the knowledge,

mrs. mango's

The yummy girls headed up a ways to spend some time at a place called Mrs. Mangos. It's a little store, full of dried herbs, antiques, local honey and some bath and body products.

While you're there, you are always offered a cup of tea and cookies :)

We bought some dried gourds and lavender and sat for a spell.....

food revolution

Have you seen Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution? I don't know about you, but I must have had my head in a hole in the ground because I didn't know this! :(

YUK! Now, think about the chicken nuggets in those meals that make kids 'happy' and the texture is strange.....not stringy like chicken, but kinda like what Jamie demonstrates in this video.

It is time for a food revolution!

peace~love~and always learning,
