olfactoryscents is taking a short break

Loading

Note from shop owner 7-25-2016: Due to extreme heat across the land, and difficulties with shipping product in said heat, I will be closing shop for approx a month. I apologize for this inconvenience and the short notice, and I hope to make amends upon re-opening.

The plan, come mid to late-august, is to:

~ have all summer scents available at a discounted price

~ have a good number of summer and fall scented soaps ready to be shipped

~ have a number of sale items/clearance items available (one-off scents, sample sizes, discontinued products, etc)

Enjoy the rest of your summer and stay cool!!

About

i like colorful things that smell good :)

I'm happiest when I have an outlet for the millions of ideas that run through my brain on any given day. I love creating and consider myself a maker. It has been this way for as long as I remember.....

I started out doing watercolors and then shifted to clay, both throwing on the wheel and making small wire-backed vintage-motif ceramic buttons. Very colorful. Very tedious. And very hard on the hands. Any potter can attest that the average garden variety hand lotion is pretty much an exercise in futility. So I began the search for balms to cure my chronically dry chapped hands. After purchasing several I thought, “how hard can it be to make this myself?” And so here I am. My curiosity led to countless hours of research and testing and pawning product off on friends and family. Olfactory Scents was born and the rest is history.

It's a one-woman show up here in the northeast corner of Minnesota so, besides my day job, I have a hand in all things Olfactory Scents. I research the soap recipes and create & design the final product. I measure the oils and melt the beeswax & cocoa butter and then line up those sassy little lip balm tubes and try to pour without spilling. I make, inspect, package and ship each and every lotion bar. And I tuck a little handwritten "thank you" in each package.....Minnesota Nice, after all :) Most of the amazing photos in this shop are the work of my talented bro-in-law Dave and his daughter Kaia. The crappy, out of focus photos are all me though! 

I'm quite proud of how this little shop has evolved. It all started with my excrutiatingly dry hands and the question of "Hmmm, I wonder what cardamom, clementine and vanilla smells like when mixed together?" It has since grown into a shop that offers fresh and natural good-for-you soap and skin products that smell great and won't break the bank! I'm grateful for this space called Etsy (and my amazing customers too!) which allows me this opportunity to explore a whole new side of my creativity.

Thanks for stopping by!
Carry on then......

simple. fresh. clean.

freshly made bath and body products using natural oils and butters that you can feel good about using. my goal is to keep the ingredient list simple and the packaging as eco-friendly as possible. my products do not contain preservatives or any weird chemicals that you can't pronounce. zero petroleums. zero SLS. zero funny business.

i primarily use essential oils and essential oil blends to scent my products. i also use fragrance oils which are high quality and pthalate-free. i clearly identify both in the listing and materials for those who are looking for 100% natural products. if you have any questions about any of my products, feel free to contact me.

Women who are pregnant should use caution or avoid altogether using essential oils. Pregnant women should first consult with their doctors regarding the use of essential oils.
