So sad to see this shop go but I was delighted to be able to grab some things for the road. As usual, all of the products are top quality. There was an issue with some leakage from one of the oils but everything was packed perfectly so it wasn't anyone's fault. Best wishes!

Scent: 'Ello. So the first time I gave this a sniff, it actually smelled more like a blueberry tea than blackberry anything to me. Of course, I had also just sampled the very lovely The Last Unicorn just prior so that likely warped my smell sense since a second test, without any competing scents, definitely revealed those lovely blackberry notes. I thought I could taste the tea and scones this time, and if tea actually tasted that good I'd be drinking it! A lovely royal blue like color (one of my favorites!) and sparkly on top I'm looking forward to filling the house with this scent (well, when my scent-sensitive companions aren't around to sneeze about it). Really wish I'd gotten all the fragrances when they were still offered!

Scent: Last Unicorn. One of my all-time favorite childhood movies (and the book is even better!) the scent instantly reminded me of childhood trips every few years up to New York for the lilac festival. It's purple, it's got glitter (sparkles!), and it smells fantastic even in its solid wax state. So looking forward to using this!
The Evolution of Geek Fire Labs
After getting caught in a wave of layoffs at my job in early 2012, I decided it was time for a change. You know. Follow my bliss, go where my heart goes. And my heart regularly plays D&D, queues up for the midnight release of the newest Marvel movie, stays inside to farm pets in World of Warcraft and lives for putting the beatdown on others in Overwatch. In other words, I'm a huge geek!
In October 2012, I began regularly selling my wares at Artist Alleys within comic book conventions and found I enjoyed it immensely. In addition to producing and selling my art prints I began playing with bath and body supplies, making lip balms for friends and family. I found they brought delight to the faces of my loved ones! So I decided to share that delight with the online community.
Now I offer a wide selection of handmade lip balms and hand-blended, artisan perfumes on my Etsy store. I am always evolving and growing my selection of products, and I work hard to incorporate a fun, professional flair with all the best ingredients and practices I can find.
Between my Etsy store and my art shows, I have managed to turn a passion into a small but successful side business, and I will be forever thankful to those who have supported me on the journey. I couldn't have done it without all of you!
Thank you so much for your support and for reading.
