Hello 2022! New Year, New Focus, New Products!
Updated: Jan 7, 2022
Welcome to Solstice!
As I type, the first snowfall of the year has arrived here in central NC, lighting up the hearts of children and offering a dazzling display of nature's finery. While this snow won't last long, it's enough to prompt lots of cozy vibes. And cozy comfort is the theme of our January 2022 new product collection!
We have so much to share with you! Here's to a bountiful new year! Cheers!
New Shopping Experiences!
Welcome to the new Solstice website! After years of struggling with an outdated platform, it is a happy relief to finally have a real website. I'm still celebrating every day!! Woot woot! You can shop all of our products direct from the site OR...(drumroll...) stop by our brand new retail boutique located at 23 Rectory St. in downtown Pittsboro! I can't tell you how incredibly exciting it is to realize this long-held dream of opening my very own apothecary shop! I am already overwhelmed with gratitude for all of you that made it out to shop this holiday season. I sold out of every last soap! As we head into the new year, the boutique will be stocked with our products plus accessories and sustainable goods to enhance your shopping experience, including as many local makers as possible. We'll have gift bags and boxes available in-store so that you can put together personalized gift sets to suit anyone on your gift list. Stop on by and visit Thu-Sun 12-4*!
*Generally these days/hours, but some weeks I may have to adjust due to health appts.
New Product Collections!
My new focus this year is creating monthly themed product collections on a larger scale! In the past few years, I've produced themed collections but those products were exclusive to my subscription program. This year I'm going bigger by offering these collections both in-store and on the website.
January is all about the cozy vibes! We're releasing 4 new soaps this month, including an eye-opening coffee soap, a breezy peppermint & eucalyptus bar (pictured above), and a scrumptious almond and coconut scented bar, appropriately called Sweater Weather. We also have an adorable snowman bath bomb, a cozy vanilla and mint body lotion perfect for dry winter skin, a yummy mocha mint scented hand and foot cream and lip balms. For self-care, we've formulated a natural menthol-boosted vapor rub to help with those seasonal sniffles and coughs and we're bringing back our popular tooth powder.
New Soap of the Month Subscription program!
While our focus has shifted away from our previous much-loved subscription box format so that we can direct our attention to the new boutique, we wanted to continue to offer a subscription option that gives you the opportunity to check out new products (plus we know how much you love gifting them!). Announcing our brand new Bubble Box suds-cription! Each month includes an exclusive soap (or a variety pack of soaps!) along with a few additional aromatic goodies, all following a specific theme. You can sign up with automatic recurring payments or as a one-time purchase. The January Collection is the Snow Queen Collection and contains an exclusive soap, bath bomb, and bath salt blend. We're ready to ship this week! Head to the website and buy now! This initial collection is limited in inventory so don't wait long!
New Skincare Solutions!
As some of you already know, I'm currently enrolled in a diploma program as a Master Formulator of natural skincare and haircare. I'm learning soo much! So you'll be seeing lots of new skincare products in the year ahead (and yes, eventually, haircare products like solid shampoo bars, too!).
For January, the focus is on acne care, and our new release includes a charcoal and tea tree salt-based blemish bar and an oil cleansing serum formulated specifically to address acne.
Check out all these new products now on the website!
