Kinder Soaps’ Bazaar Participation This Weekend Cancelled

I have decided not to set up booth at this weekend’s bazaar at Bangsar Village II. We have a family crisis–my mother is critically ill and is being rushed home tonight from Singapore after undergoing surgery there. Her cancer seems to have caused more complications and doctors have indicated that there’s not much else they can do to help.

So I’d like to have this time to spend with her and my family instead.

I’m sorry if this causes anyone any inconvenience. The online store is always open so please feel free to browse here. 🙂 Do take care, everyone, and have a good weekend.

3 New Whipped Body Butters In The Pipeline

Thank you to all those who tried, bought and loved my whipped cocoa body butter that was scented with peppermint essential oil. I’ve only got 1 more jar left in stock–thanks to the very enthusiastic Shelly, Melanie and colleagues!

From your very helpful feedback on this, particularly from those who have eczema, I am definitely going to put together an unscented version of the body butter, as well as one that contains roman chamomile and lavender essential oils for those who want an additional soothing component to their body butters.

Both of these are especially intended to help those with severe eczema, though of course everyone else (with the exception of very young children, under 3 years of age as cocoa butter may be too heavy an oil for their skin). Chamomile and lavender essential oils are commonly used to soothe inflamed skin, and I myself am using this blend to control my occasional, mild eczema flare-ups.

I should have these ready for sale this weekend at Bangsar Village II. If the curiosity of your olfactory and tactile senses have been tickled, do come over to my booth and test the body butters for yourself to see (and feel!) if they really can make a difference for your skin.

First Trial Run For Anti-Mozzi Oil Blend

Whenever I send my kids over to my in-laws’ place for the afternoon, they invariably come home with terribly itchy mosquito bites. Hubby and I get bitten badly too. Andrea gets a lot more than Brandon–and she has been losing sleep at night because of this. Usually at about 1am she’ll start stirring from her slumber and I’ll hear her swishing her legs on the mattress, trying to rub away at the bites.
