So I went to small business camp last month and I took a lot of classes from some very talented and informed people. The problem with education is it gives you ideas. Big ideas. Big ideas that turn into hours of research, proposals, frustrations, breakdowns, gut checks, and, finally, fruition.
I’ve decided to do a series on my scrubs, detailing their components and histories and how they make me feel. I love this stuff and I want to share it with those who may not have a clue why scrubbing is such an awesome experience. I’ve already done this a little bit with postings on the differences between sugar and salt, etc, but now I want to go into my products themselves. Sound like a plan? Not necessarily a good plan, but a plan nonetheless.
Finally! It’s up and done! Well, not done as it is an ever evolving organism of a sorts. But it is at least completed enough that it is fit for public consumption. At long last, my new website is up and running. My hope is that it will be easier to navigate than my old website. The new homepage is my storefront so my products are the first thing you see.

You are using an abrasive substance to remove the dead skin
