Bubbles Blog—Lines from the Lake

August 2, 2022

Happy August!  What a beautiful month.  August is the last flicker of sun and heat before Fall arrives. 

Summer may be fading but we have enjoyed seeing so many of you this summer with your families and friends in the store!  Without fail when our friends come in, they mention how lovely the store smells. 

By the way here is a science lesson for you today…Did you know Fish smell?  Well, we certainly do!

So why does the store smell so good?  No Linda doesn’t make us fresh-made cookies in the back.  Sad deal.

We have so many great scent givers in the store!

Goat Soap from SW Missouri

Inis Products from Ireland

Finchberry Soap from Northern Florida

And my new favorite Scent Chips

Proudly Handcrafted in San Antonio, Texas, Scentchips have been handmade since 1979. The scent chip team takes great pride in crafting beautiful aromas that stand apart from the average melt. Scentchips are made using the finest ingredients and a carefully crafted soy wax blend. It’s like they are

making the world smell better… one chip at a time.

I love this family’s story which began modestly in a small garage. They truly are the best fragrances on the market. 

How much fun is the scent chip table at the store?  It’s so much fun to create a scent with all the wax melts.  If you recall in my first blog where I created my own scent “BUBBLES” (Bonus if you read this far.) Drop my “recipe” for Bubbles in the comments on the FB post where Jenn links this one and maybe I’ll take a cue from Linda and put you in a drawing for something fun!

The girls were a little jealous that I made my own blend, so I let them come up with some of their own…For the first time ever here are their recipes.
