Happy Birthday To Us – Belle & Blaire Turns Three!

posted in: Etsy, News | 0

Three years ago today we opened our online store on Etsy. We’ve had some growing pains, a bunch of lessons learned and even a name change along the way, but our top priorities continue to be — to make quality handmade products to order that customers will love and our dedication to provide excellent customer service. Three years wouldn’t have been possible without our new and returning customers who found Belle & Blaire among hundreds of bath and body shops on the Etsy marketplace — and for that we are thankful!

A New Home

posted in: News, Promotions | 0

Welcome back to belleandblaire.com!

Our website has been offline for nearly a year as we looked for a new shopping cart alternative that would allow us to maintain 100+ products without limitations while giving us room to grow. After several stop-and-go’s throughout the year we finally settled on a flexible shopping cart that meets all of our needs and made a goal to relaunch the site in time for the holiday shopping season. We hope you like our new home and consider buying from us here. Also consider subscribing to our mailing list to qualify to receive 20% off your next order and to receive updates on new products, upcoming sales and exclusive online events.

Etsy Customer Reviews

Recent customer reviews on Etsy. Not only am I thankful for customers, I love it when they return to write nice reviews about my products. It lets me know that I am moving in the right direction when I create new fragrances and products. Feeling very thankful and blessed by the kind reviews.

Vegan- Fantasy Pear Sugar Polish Bubbling Scrub- Juicy Pear, Creamy Vanilla, Hot Butterscotch- 4oz

I’m usually not a fan of pear scents but I really like this one. Nice blend of all three scents. Came back to buy the butter and whipped soap. Excellent seller!!! Thank You!!! – CLSCRR, 12/6/13

NEW- Forest Berries Skin Salve- Raspberries, Blackberries, Smoky Vanilla, Musk- 4oz

This works!! For the first time in my life, I was getting patches of eczema on my face: eyelid and chin. I started applying dabs of this salve morning and night and noticed immediate improvement. In 3 days both spots cleared up! I wish I had had this years ago when my kids would get winter-skin eczema that wouldn’t clear with anything in the pharmacy. A BIG plus is the yummy berry fragrance! How GOOD not to smell like medicinal products all day, like a stinky advertisement that you are treating something yucky! If anyone whiffs this product on you, it just smells yummy. Kids will like it, too. Highly recommended!!! – Mara, 12/7/13

Vegan- Tantrum Perfume Oil- Bourbon, Vanilla, Woody, Cocoa, Cherry, Pecan, Musk- Roll On Perfume

A Fun wearable fragrance that blends in well any day! Despite its name, it’s a “feel-good” fragrance for me. Excellent service in this shop, fast shipping and careful packing. – Mara, 12/7/13

NEW- Vegan- Vanilla Woodsmoke Perfume Oil- Burning Woods, French Vanilla, Soft Lavender- Roll On Perfume

This fragrance does that “shifting to suit the day’s chemistry” on me: some days it is a vanilla fragrance, other times the wood smoke has come forth. At this time of year (and other cold seasons) that woodsmoke smell is a fun touch. Great fragrance! Inventive shop, fast shipping, reliable packaging. – Mara, 12/7/13

Vegan- Immortal Body Butter Cream- Rugged Leather, Pipe Smoke, Amber, Resin, Dark Musk- 4oz

Wonderful products, as always! Every time I order I discover a new favorite scent. The Immortal scent is masculine and dreamy. I love to layer the body butters and perfume oils together after a bath or shower. You’ve once again hooked me on a new scent. I will be back for more! Thank you Tyra 🙂 – Sara R., 12/7/13

Natural alternative to the flu shot

At-Home-Flu-Shots

This article reminded me of the natural, home remedy I started making last year to stave off flu-like symptoms the moment I start to feel under the weather. It’s a strong drink to taste and smell, but it works like a charm every time.

Chop up equal parts of the following ingredients, raw garlic, raw ginger, and raw onion; add it to a half cup of water then add a dash or two of red hot pepper. Dump it into a blender and blend until it’s smooth enough to drink. Pour out 3 tablespoons, about the amount of a shot and then drink. Chase it with water to help dull the strong taste. Take one more tablespoon before bed and you’ll wake up the following morning feeling like yourself again.

Health and Wellness

posted in: Health and Wellness | 0

fruits-veggies-herbs-collageIn an effort to evolve the blog beyond sharing bath and body products and the ups and downs of growing an online home-based business, I will share a little more about my background and interests. One of my biggest interests over the last several years, other than growing my bath and body business, is health and wellness as it pertains to holistic health.

I am an advocate of using fruits & vegetables and herbs & spices as a natural source to heal what ails us internally and externally. I will write about recipes, home remedies from personal experience, and share articles I find online that promotes holistic health and wellness. Of course, sharing my bath and body products will remain the number one focus of the blog, but it’s time to add more content that will be a benefit to others while having an outlet to share more about my efforts to maintain a holistic lifestyle.
