Hello and welcome to the official Stella Marie Soap Company blog!
I want to first thank all of you who have made our launch successful! I opened my cyber doors on December 1st and the soap lovers came rushing in. I hope to keep you bathing in our delightful soaps all year round, so stop on by every once in a while to find out what's new at Stella Marie.
Here is a book that has become quite near and dear to me since I first purchased it at Ira's Book Store in downtown New Bedford, MA. It's a very intriguing historical account of perfumes, spices and soaps, and cosmetics. It was published in Boston in 1940. There was a note card in the book which must have gone unnoticed by Ira. It reads:
For Mary and Burr, too, if he likes it -- because it was a bargain and because it fascinated me and because there ought always to be a book in every Christmas box. Read it by the fire, if any, some cold night (there is sure to be one) and think of me. No cookies to munch with it because we have to mail early and we're all tuckered out from too much Thanksgiving.
Here is a sneak peak at a soap I will be offering soon. It is basil mint scented, and it is meant to compliment my She Smells Sanctuary yummy sugar scrub.
