Remember Two Things

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!

Skin care and paranormal prevention. Now that’s some serious double duty.

September Means Changes To Your Skin Care Routine

September 04, 2018

Unless you are blessed like us to live in an environment where it's eternally summer, September means it's time to trade those flip flops and tank tops for jeans and a sweater.

Skin Care Routines Must Change With The Seasons

The skin is the barrier between the internal and external world and as much as they may wish summer wouldn't end so soon, for most people reading this, it’s just not summertime anymore. September also means it's time to transition away from summer skincare routines. Temperatures may vary greatly from one day to the next, It can be hot, humid during the day and cooler and dryer at night. The water in the air affects the balance of water (hydration) in the skin. A humid climate can soften skin and make it easy to maintain fullness, but a dryer climate can dehydrate the skin, making more likely to show fine lines and wrinkles.
