I can't believe it's already fall, this summer has flown by and not with out exciting news! We are ecstatic to tell you that we have purchased the Fleur de Light Candle company that has been established for over ten years on New Orleans! These beautiful one of a kind ceramic pieces are now available through our website at www.fleurdelightcandles.com. There you can find pieces from our best selling Chateau and New Orleans Collections as well as the Provence ceramic urns. The hand mixed fragrance and wax blend quality is something that can not be matched by other local candle makers. We invite you to check out our site and see the difference for yourself!
In addition to purchasing another local business we've launched a new line of products that are organic, essential oil based and completely vegan. Our Natural NOLAS products include soaps, facial care products, coconut milk bath soaks, lotions and scrubs. Every ingredient factored into these products is gone over in great detail to ensure that NOLAS brand is offering the best quality, sustainable and responsibly sourced ingredients. You can visit us at www.naturalnolas.com to see what everyone is talking about!
We had such a great time Thursday night at the sold out west elm event! Each participant was able to create their own custom essential oil blend, and take it home in a roller ball perfume bottle. There were so many creative blends that I wouldn't have put together myself but smelled amazing; such a talented group! Here are some fun pics from the night... Thank you to all of the folks that made it out!
P.S - You can now purchase NOLAS soaps and bath bombs at west elm on Magazine Street!

There are so many aspects of running a business that I love to do, but my most favorite is formulating new products. We have been working diligently to create a new line of NOLAS products that will incorporate the highest grade essential oils, and organic, vegan ingredients. We've also taken classes in aromatherapy to ensure that the combination of essential oils used will ensure relaxation, and a therapeutic response.
We've included soaps, facial scrub, oil cleanser, and body scrubs to get started. Other products will fall into place over time, but we would like our initial offering to be specially curated with only the best! Here is a sneak peek at our Citrus Soap Bar. It smells, and feels amazing, with notes of Grapefruit, Lemon & Sweet Orange Essential Oils, combined with Red Moroccan Clay to provide a slip and softness to your skin after bathing. It's already become one of my favorites!
I hope everyone is off to an inspiring start in 2016! We haven't slowed down since the holidays, and we have some good news about our 40% off sale. We're having a 'tub sale', all products on our tub are 40% off- what a steal! We are cleaning house on inventory to make room for new products. Small lotions, bath bombs, foot scrubs, tinted lip balms, soaps, loofah soaps, scrubs and Viva NOLA products are all 40% off, you won't want to miss it!
