Mothers Day at Island Thyme Soap Company

Love Your Mother And Leave Only Your Footprints

Remember Two Things is a 1993 album by the Dave Matthews BandThe general consensus among Dave Matthews Band fans is that the two things referred to in the title are "love your mother" and "leave only footprints."

We're big fans. Not only of the band, but of the sentiment behind those words. 

This weekend as we celebrate Mothers Day, we are reminded that cards and flowers and pampering gestures like breakfast in bed may bring a smile to her face, but there is no greater gift for a mom than to observe how her child is making the world a better place.  

The bond in the Mother & Child relationship is magical and for all the work it takes, there is profound reward in watching children grow and start chasing their dreams.The footprints they leave are a unique contribution to the world, shaped in part by a mom.

I love you, Mom.  You taught me well.

And to all the moms out there, the team at Island Thyme Soap Company wishes you a very happy Mother’s Day!

ClOSE YOUR EYES...

Now imagine the refreshing fragrance of a shower in the Amazon rainforest. Unfortunately for us, quality Palo Santo essential oil is too costly to use in soap. Our raw cost for the fragrance alone from a trusted source would be more than $325.00 per pound of essential oil.

But there are certainly other more affordable ways to enjoy the amazing fragrance!

Bar Soap is BACK, Baby!
Bar Soap is BACK, Baby!

Consumers are demanding companies cut back on unnecessary plastic waste. They are shopping for more eco-friendly versions of everyday items; Zero waste items are preferred over single use plastic bags, reusable coffee cups instead of paper ones, 100% compostable and reusable beeswax food wrap instead of plastic wrap, etc. And now bars of soap are making a big comeback as consumers turn away from not only harsh detergent cleansers, but also the plastic bottles and pumpers they come in. 

Comeback from what?

Between 2010 and 2015, bar soap showed a drop of 5% due to an impression among millenials that bar soap potentially harbored hidden germs and dirt. But science doesn't bear that out!
