Join me at The Soap Guild conference in Palm Springs in May. I’ll be teaching the Lotionmaking class and mingling for the rest of the days. I’m so excited. The last few times I’ve been at the Guild conference, I haven’t been able to attend many of the classes and this time, I’ve got time to mingle, chat and best of all, learn from other experts in the industry.

On a cold and cough related front, ’tis the season to have the sniffles. Green Skin Care from The Grapeseed Company has a great recipe for helping to clear up those pesky sinuses. Bramble Berry carries the three essential oils listed: Peppermint, Eucalyptus and Cinnamon. Buy them out here.
The news from Bramble Berry today is that much of the city is flooded after our torrential downpour last night with more wet stuff on the way later this week. Shipping schedules are on track as all of our staff braved the flooding to come to work. Check out the road closures; getting anywhere in this town is a challenge right now.

I’ll see you there again this year Anne Marie. Your business lectures last year were inspiring to me. The Lotion making class is one I will not miss.
Teresa R says
Thanks for letting me know, Anne-Marie! Anything will be most helpful to a beginner. 🙂
I REALLY want to go.
Hi Teresa –
While there’s probably no professional, 45 minute video for lotions in the immediate future – I’ll be doing some short snippet video tutorials this year which will hopefully help with things like lotion making, figuring out what trace looks like and dealing with oxides in melt and pour. =)
Julie, I’m looking forward to meeting you.
I just joined the Guild recently and am really looking forward to being at the conference. It looks like a lot of fun.I hope to meet you while I’m there.
Teresa R says
Boy, would it be fun to go there, but we’ll have been out West in March and doubt I can go back again in May. 🙁
For those of us who can’t get to conferences easily, do you think you can make a how-to video on making lotions/creams just like your soap-making videos? Pretty please!
I’m going to the conference for the first time this year. I’m so excited to hear you’ll be there. I’ll be sure to introduce myself. You have truly been an inspiration to me!

That’s my home town. I hope to see you there!
I really wanted to go but I’m afraid I won’t be able to afford it. I make lotions but really need to take a class to know if I am doing it right.
Good luck and have fun!
I am excited to hear you will be there. I look forward to meeting you in person. 🙂 We will be going early to get some golfing in too. If you are a golfer, would love to have you join us!
