Luxury for Your Lips

If your lips could use a little lanolin love, Sweet Sheep Body Shoppe has got you covered. I’ve just added seven tasty lip balm flavors to the shop:

• Lavender EO: scented with essential oils, calming and relaxing
• Spearmint EO: scented withe essential oils, fresh and uplifting
• Passionfruit Rose: both fruity and floral, tropical and elegant
• Chocolate Cupcake: warm and chocolate-y and sweet
• Toasted Coconut: sweet and toast-y, tropical and nutty
• Strawberry Vanilla: like the lip smackers of childhood, sweet and fruity
• Lemon Lime: fresh and bright, tangy and sweet

These balms contain luxurious and skin-loving natural oils and butters, including mango butter, beeswax, avocado oil, vitamin E oil, and lanolin. They are hands-down my favorite lip balm (not just because I cooked them up) and I hope you love them, too, if you give them a try!

Five New Scents at Sweet Sheep Body Shoppe

I’ve been hard at work putting together some new scents for my Sweet Sheep lotion bars! Besides moisturizing your skin with nourishing ingredients (like lanolin!), solid lotion bars are a treat for your nose, too. I love the way the fragrance subtly lingers throughout the day. When I want a little hit of almond or chocolate or spring flowers, I just take a sniff!

I am often amused by the types of items I need to gather together for a successful photo shoot to represent my scents, and this round was no exception! It’s not often that I walk into a flower shop to purchase six carnations and a handful of different mosses, for example. Or into a grocery store for a pound cake, lemons, some caramels, and dried chilli peppers, for that matter (though that would make for an interesting meal). Sometimes coming up with intriguing and representative photos is half the fun! The new scents are:

Carnation — a sweet, romantic floral with just a touch of clove.
Sea Moss — a gentle, peaceful, clean scent that has floral base notes.
Green Tea — a bright, herbal, slightly tangy, and refined scent.
Chipotle Caramel — a sugary-sweet, vanilla-based scent with a hint of spice.
Lemon Cake — a warm, buttery, practically-edible citrus scent (this might just be my favorite right now… YUM).

Which scent will you choose?

Brand new on Etsy: Sweet Sheep Body Shoppe

I have just opened my brand new Etsy shop selling handcrafted solid lotion bars that contain the super-moisturizing powers of lanolin! As a long-time knitter, spinner, and lover of all things indie, I came across solid lotion bars for the first time at a fiber festival and I fell hard. My hands were always dry from working with them so much and the lotion bars moisturized them like no liquid lotion ever had. However, I didn’t quite love the consistency, wanted more control over the intensity of fragrance, and especially wanted to incorporate lanolin into the bar (because one can never get quite enough sheep-y goodness, am I right?) — so I decided to make my own!

After much experimenting with ratios and testing of formulas with willing volunteers, I came up with just the right combination of skin-nourishing oils and waxes, including: beeswax, mango butter, cocoa butter, sweet almond oil, coconut oil, meadowfoam oil, vitamin E oil, and of course, lanolin. The bars have great consistency and staying power and just a little bit goes a long way. I’m having tons of fun experimenting with different scents (sweet and spicy and floral, oh my!) and am happy to work on a custom order if you have something in mind that you don’t see stocked in the shop!

To celebrate my brand new shop, I’m offering 10% off any purchase with the code “INDIELOVE” through the end of April! I’ll soon be adding sample sizes, gifts sets, and lip balms to the shop so be sure to check back often to see what’s new!
