The Soap Tribune, Issue #060--Spectacular Fall colors

Bees in Fall

We had a new bee keeper this year and his bees on our property this Summer. Clark started keeping bees when he was 11 years old. In his 8th year of keeping bees, Clark came to pick up some of his hives and harvest the honey. Click the link to read about it below.

I'm a bee keeping supporter and LOVE beeswax. LiiXTiK Lip Balm and LiX Lotion Stik are made with premium wax. And I still love using the lip balm as my hair conditioner.

Fall colors

We are having a spectacular Fall in Upstate NY. If you haven't seen the colors yet this year, they are still vibrant, even after all of last week's. We are having a last burst of warm sunny weather, that should go through to the end of the month.

Check our locations page for a great store where you can get our soap and lip balm, while on your Fall Foliage adventures. Not sure where to go? One of my favorite places to go to in NYS is Phoenicia, NY, next to Woodstock. Book a room and get a massage at Menla Mountain Retreat. Our soap is THE soap for the retreat, so you don't have to worry about chemical aromas or unpleasant soaps.

Stop in The Nest Egg Country Store for any camp gear you may need, including our bar soap and lip balm.

Of course you can visit us in Ithaca too

The shipping story is continuing, as ships filled with shipping containers wait in line at the ports, trucking guidelines change, and glass, paper and plastic packaging becomes scarce.

Did you know that The Liquid Soap Refill is 85% less shipping weight and plastic free? Just add water.

You can hedge it by purchasing in bulk for less and getting more as prices adjust to keep up with changing times.

Our prices have not increased in quite a while, and we have bulk pricing to alleviate the pressure that may be affecting your holiday budget.

Unfortunately we can not control shipping times, pricing, or supply line interruptions. I am a plan ahead person and I am suggesting you do the same.
