Now that the holidays are fast approaching and the last minute shopping are rushed, hopefully we can all sit back and reflect on the past year and spend time with family. That is what Christmas is all about. Not spending money on gifts but family. I know we all get sucked into the commercialization of Christmas and it tradition to buy gifts but we also need to remember what it is truly about. There are millions of people without nothing to eat, no jobs and no Christmas this year.

So I wish you all happy holidays and a very safe and fun New Year.

In 2012 we will have more soaps available and a few other items available. Pegasus Soaps will be taking a little time off and much need rest over the holidays. Our Etsy, Artfire and Website will be available for orders over the holidays but will not process any orders til after January 2nd so see you all in 2012

Something New !

Well over the years I have had several banners in my Etsy shop and my Artfire shop. I am never satisfied with my banners for some reason and I guess I am looking for that something but couldn't quite put my finger on it. Well I was roaming through the Artfire forums and ran across a studio called Bannerama. Such a cute name so I went to check out their studio. Here are a couple samples of her work.





They make fantastic banners for Artfire studios. They also can customize a banner for you if you don't see anything you like. I wanted to go with something completely different that no one has so I wanted to customize it. Well I got in contact with the studio and asked if they can customize a banner specifically to my studio. Billie (who is the owner of the studio) got in contact with me immediately and began working with me. I have to give it to her, she was so patient with me as I just couldn't make up my mind on what I want. She gave me a lot of options, talked with me as to w…

Cocoa Butter Body Butter Cream 4 oz

Cocoa Butter Body Butter Cream 4 oz

Our Cocoa Butter body cream includes Shea Butter and Cocoa Butter, which both of these butters are excellent for the skin. Both butters help reduce the appearances of scars, blemishes,and other imperfections in the skin. In addition, we added Vitamin E and C.

Although this body cream was meant for the body, it can be used on the face. It has a very thick consistency so very little on the face is recommended and would be great as a moisturizer.

This cream has a wonderful natural scent of the cocoa butter and is great all on its own without any fragrances added. Once applied, it absorbs very quickly without ANY greasy feeling and you will begin to smell the natural cocoa butter.

Use Natural Scrubs

Why not use natural facial scrubs and exfoliants?

A facial scrubs contains exfoliating ingredients that remove dead and dull skin cells, resulting in a brighter complexion. (They can also unclog pores and moisturize the skin. Natural facial scrubs use natural ingredients that exfoliants like ground nuts, seeds, fruit, sugar and salt instead. These facial scrubs alternatives help you achieve healthy and radiant skin without the harsh chemicals used in your over the counter scrubs.

So now that you heard why natural facial scrubs are the better choice why not try some.



Pomegranate & Berries

This is one of my most popular sugar scrubs. Not only does it contains natural ingredients, it smells terrific. We use sugar and berry seeds for exfoliants that will leave your face feeling soft and smooth. This can be used all over the body.




Herbal Oatmeal Facial Scrub

Got Dry Skin?

Image
There are a lot of misconceptions about handmade soap and dry skin. Yes if you buy the right type of handmade soap you can avoid dry skin. I find that a lot of melt and pour soaps can be very drying to the skin (sorry just my opinion and some may disagree) but no matter how natural or expensive the M&P Glycerin soap I buy, I can still tell the difference and it still makes my skin dry. I know there are so many pretty, fragrant and colorful glycerin soaps but are they good for your skin? That is what you should be asking yourself. Cold or hot process soap is the best bet for you. Of course if you are still buying over the counter soaps, you will continue to have dry skin. Those soaps are detergent and beauty bars. With the combinations of those soaps and hard water areas you will continue to have dry skin.

Using harsh, alkaline soaps and soaking too long and too often in very hot baths can do it.

Overheated homes with low humidity, as well as air-conditioning (which also lowers the r…

Featured Items of the Day

One of my favorites is Wind Chill. It has the most unique wintery scent.



One of my all time favorites as it has a peppermint and cooling affect that is just relaxing. The best way to describe it is a cool and refreshing to bolster confidence and invigorate, essential oil peppermint, plums, peaches and acquatics balanced with the dusting of powdery






You may also like the French Lavender. Another favorite of mine. This is a lavender that is just a bit different than your traditional lavenders. This is a sweeter lavender. Very different than what you are experience with the other lavenders. Some people don't like lavender but this is definitely sweeter.




For those that love the smell of Banana Nut Bread. Try this mixture of juicy ripe bananas with a hint of something nutty. Who can resist this scent. This will definitely get you in the holiday mood and maybe into some baking. I know every time I light one of these I get in the mood for something sweet. Who doesn't like the smell …
