MMM…fresh soaps and bath fizzies curing in the soap shop!

It’s spring and my soap shop is busy making goat milk soaps and bath fizzies that people have enjoyed. New to the soap shop for 2024 will be vegan soaps made of rice milk and oat milk known to be great for sensitive skin. Testing recipes is part of the fun!

Happy Spring & be sure to check the shop for items soon to be available for purchase or find me at an upcoming farmers’ market or craft fair.

Remember to pamper yourself!

Much love, LaDonna

Welcome Back!

I’m so glad to be back in the shop!

When I think of returning, the theme song for Welcome Back Cotter instantly plays in my mind.

Much love, LaDonna G.

“Welcome back, your dreams were your ticket out.”

I’m sure this just aged me a bit, but having a place that feels like home is what we all strive to obtain.

The past few years have been hard to travel. I hope you have found that place you dreamed of or at least see the avenue that will lead you there.

Thank you for visiting & supporting my piece of the dream!

Share the love…

Have you found yourself longing for something more calming and healing?

Self-care is a necessary venture to keep your inner being happy and healthy. Take a walk. Reserve an afternoon or a good book. Enjoy those long baths with a view of the sky out a nearby window once in a while.

No matter your remedy, do not forget to stop, enjoy nature’s scenery, and reflect on where you want to be that nurtures your soul.

Keep true to your inner self & share the love!


Springing in the Soaps!

It’s been a hard spring so far…so hard to stay sad when there are lots of fur and feather baby animals to love and natural soaps to make. I cannot be more thankful for the blessings each day brings on LaVis Farm here in Southeast Missouri!

The soap shop is busily batching and curing soaps for you to enjoy. Soaps take at least four weeks to cure before they are shipped with your order. As they age, soaps get better making a harder, longer-lasting bar for your tub and shower needs.

If you find a soap that has been neglected for a year, it may have lost its essential oil scent a bit, but those properties remain for your skin to enjoy! Often, a refresh in the shower will bring out the inner oil scents trapped in the soap, although not as strong as a bar that is less than a year old. But the lather and creaminess will be at their best and most enjoyable!

Do let me know if you wish to see a natural scent or pamper item added to the shop. While we are working to restock items that have become favorites to many, I do enjoy the adventures of new recipes to try.

So, let’s look at 2021 as a year of new adventures with many turns and paths to navigate and much enjoyment to find!

Be Blessed & Be Thankful!

Much love, LaDonna


Winter will soon pass

How are YOU? As the weather whips around us in a frenzy, remember to take time to relax and revitalize yourself.

Perhaps a cozy spot in a favorite chair with a hot mug of herbal tea will do while gazing out a nearby window. Even a walk along a water’s edge watching the hustle and bustle of nature’s waterways will help boost your mood.

No matter how you do it, be sure to work in moments of self-restoration to keep you ready for the day!

The shop will soon be in full swing in March batching soaps, rolling bath fizzies, and testing recipes for a lotion bar; a new item to the shop.

In the meantime, consider a few handmade crochet heirloom items for gift giving. Do stop by often as the soap shop is buzzing again to help celebrate Spring on March 20th!

Take care & be safe!

Much love, LaDonna


Mood lifting mint to the rescue!

New to the shop is a mood-lifting peppermint bath fizzie to get your spirits up and smiling. Mmm…it’s so refreshing!

Many customers have asked about certain soaps returning to the shop. Like other sellers, a few items have been stalled to restock due to a supply order delay. As soon as the ingredients can be retrieved, the soaps will be batched and return to the shop.

December is finally here and soon 2021 can bring us new hopes and a new outlook.

Take care & be healthy!

Much Love, LaDonna

What a year to stay home and snuggle in!

How’s your fall going? While this year has been a struggle for each of us, keeping yourself recharged and relaxed can help you stay on top.
