Our newest limited edition, the Garden Party Soap, is a summer and audience inspired tale! I not only set out to create a scent reminiscent of warm evening cocktails enjoyed in the yard - but I also tapped my social media & newsletter followers to help me design this lovely creation. The result: a delightfully fresh & uplifting soap that reminds me of the sparkling evening light in a verdant garden.

The Beginning Ingredients

First, I peaked at my inventory to get the creative juices flowing. I had always wanted to bring back my basil oil for a new scent - so when I took another smell of my chamomile oil, all I could smell and see was an apple basil scent profile. It was dreamy. From there, I opted to have a crowd inclusive style decision on the final components and toppings. Their options were: Lime Peel or Lemon Verbena for in the soap, and Calendula Petals or Red Lava Salt for the topping.

The Final Result

We sent a newsletter quiz and took a social media poll to hear from our following! After a week or so of polling on both platforms, the results were obvious. Lemon Verbena was the winner for the final ingredient and Red Lava Salt won for the topping. I was so excited on these results because I knew it was going to smell & look amazing, see below!

Naming The Soap

Given that my followers helped design the soap, it only felt right to have them name the soap as well! We first asked everyone to submit their name suggestions so us and narrowed down the 2 final names that fit the look & feel of the soap: Mediterranean Julep and Garden Party! And, to much of our surprise, Garden Party won by a landslide in our final poll.

It's In The Details: Etta + Billie Scent Stories and Packaging Highlight

January 27, 2022 2 min read

As many of you might know, Etta + Billie products are inspired by real life flavors and experiences that have brought me immense joy. I stumbled into the world of natural body care while working a job that left me feeling lost. At a time when I was unsure about what direction to take, I found brewing up apothecary products in my kitchen gave me purpose. Batch after batch, inspiration came from my other passion: food. Lavender shortbread became Lavender Soap. Coffee with fresh mint became Cold Brew Mint Coffee Scrub. Cardamom Old Fashioned became Grapefruit Cardamom Body Oil. Soap experiments have led me to grow my product line, experiment with seasonal scent creations, and even collaborate with unique restaurant and beverage pros, as well as with artisan food brands.
