Rebecca’s Soap Delicatessen was founded in 2001 after my handmade soap addiction got the best of me. I specialize in creating handmade shea butter soaps and lotions. When I’m not whipping up soaps, I love to listen to local live music, visit my city’s farmer’s market, read when time allows, and come up with fun and crafty new DIY projects for my blog, Soap Deli News. I am a proud single mother of a teenage son who is both a talented soccer player and a new driver in training. (He got his learner’s permit this summer!)
For this contest, I’ll be giving away three of my newest handmade soap bars – Handmade Lemon and Basil Shea Butter Soap, Handmade White Tea and Ginger Goat Milk Soap, and Handmade Coconut and Lime Goat Milk Soap. ($18 value.) In addition, you can also save an extra 25% off all sale products from Rebecca’s Soap Delicatessen when you use coupon code: BACKTOSCHOOL through September 30th, 2012. Buy as much as you want and never pay more than $6 in shipping!
Teresa, of Blackberry Thyme, is offering one of her luscious, Handmade Pumpkin Spice Soy Candles as a prize! ($8 value.) Heavily scented and dye free, this hand poured clean burning candle is a rich fragrance blend of cinnamon and clove with vanilla and coconut. (Be sure to read my review of Teresa’s candles that I posted a while back after making a purchase from her!)
Teresa opened her shop, Blackberry Thyme, in November 2007 as a way to create extra income for her family. She has always loved sewing and crafting and Blackberry Thyme allowed her the chance to be creative and remain a single, stay at home mom to her two children. Teresa specializes in hand crafting eco-friendly 100% soy wax candles, wax melts and handmade soaps. You can find her products both on Artfire and Bonanza.
Jacqueline, of Face. Body. Feet., is giving away one of her natural, herbal facial steams! The Pamper Herbal Steam consists of natural botanicals including chamomile, rose buds, lemongrass, passionflower, orange peel, and jasmine flowers blended together for a deep aromatic facial cleanse when added to boiling water. ($8 value.)
Jacqueline got her start into natural beauty after discovering Martha Stewart’s Encyclopedia of Craftsin the library one summer. Within it’s pages was a simple, natural bath tea recipe that Jacqueline thought would be fun to make. She purchased the herbal ingredients she needed for the recipe, and then made several lavender bath tea bags for her and her husband to try. All she remembers about that night was that she slept like a baby.
During Jacqueline’s research for natural ingredients and recipes, she discovered Etsy, an entire online marketplace for handcrafted items. After visiting Etsy’s bath and body section and seeing all of the great products people were offering, the seed was planted and Jacqueline started her own natural bath and body business, Face. Body. Feet.
Janelle, of Still Water Candles, is sponsoring two of her delightfully scented Jelly Jar Air Fresheners for this giveaway – one in Lilac and one in Vanilla Sugar. These 4oz. air fresheners come in a cute jelly jar with a daisy cut lid to let the fragrance out. These air fresheners make the perfect substitute for areas where you can’t burn candles such as the dormitories, cars, or the office. They last much longer than candles and make adorable gifts. ($16 value.) Make any purchase from Still Water Candles through October 31, 2012 and use coupon code: 20FallSale to receive 20% off your purchase.
Janelle is 22 years old and recently graduated with a math degree. When she’s not making candles she enjoys reading, cooking, and walking her dog. Her shop, Still Water Candles, started out solely as a candle shop. However, since it’s conception, it has slowly evolved to also include sachets, air fresheners, and reed diffusers. She named her shop after one of her favorite verses, Psalm 23:2-3: “He leads me beside still waters, He restores my soul.”
The total prize value of this contest is $50. If you’d like a chance to win, simply enter via Rafflecopter below through September 28, 2012. This contest is open to USA residents only, ages 18 and up.
