We try to keep a small supply of gloves on hand for our customers , so just ask if you prefer them. We're also asking our customers to maintain a standard 6 ft distance from each other in the shop, and if you have a face mask, please wear it! None of us enjoy wearing these masks but out of respect for each other, us and our other customers, we really appreciate you wearing one.

******* We have opened a retail location by Trolley Square! 680 E 600 S in the historic brick house on the corner. Right now we're open Tuesday-Saturday 10:30-6:00. (Holiday hours may vary). . Check our google page for more up to date info and hours. If you get to the shop during these hours and we're not here , we're probably just running behind or you can call my cell to check in and ask 801-577-3742 ***********

*******************************************************************************************

We make artisan body products with a "higher conscience" using organic, natural, fair trade, palm oil free, cruelty free, non gmo, vegan , vegan friendly, eco-friendly and locally sourced ingredients.

Part of our mission with Purring Buddha is to support cat and animal rescue efforts whenever possible. Our goal is to be able to regularly contribute financial donations from a portion of our profits and donate products for rescue fundraisers and encourage adoption, rescue and fostering.

FYI- Free soap samples go out with every order!

******Please note that in the warmer months of the year some products may melt during the shipping process. The body scrubs have organic coconut and shea butter in them which makes them more of a solid or thick consistency when stored below room temperature. When the weather gets warmer , the coconut and shea can melt. Never fear though! This is normal and natural because we haven't added anything artificial to this formula. Carefully inspect your package when it arrives and don't open the scrub if it looks like it's too liquid and warm. Simply place the jar in a cool place like your refrigerator for a couple hours then carefully open your jar , stir and mix up the contents inside before you start using it and you're good to go! ************
**** And for the body butters, this is a product I normally have to take off the website in the summer as they will not fair well in the heat because they are all natural and mostly organic butters. Just as a stick of butter will melt in the heat, the buddha butters are designed to melt on skin , which means they melt in heat. If they are heated to much during shipping, they can turn into a liquid state. You can place it in the fridge or freezer but a bit of attention will be required to get it back to it's intended state. You'll need to take the jar out of cooling every 15-30 minutes , gently stir and mix, place it back into cooling then repeat until it's solidified again. If this isn't done then the mixture can be inconsistent and the shea butter can produce a bit of a grainy texture which is a normal occurrence of shea butter. I'm currently looking at some cooling pack options to ship them with but it will most likely increase the cost of shipping a bit. Please don't hesitate to message me if you have any questions***************************************

Right now on our product list we have Soaps, Body Butters, Lip Balms, shower steamers, Bath Bombs and body Scrubs. Later on we will be adding Bath Soaks, Massage Oils and other bath and body products.

We wholesale! Please contact us for more information.

About PurringBuddha

On Etsy since 2013

Artisan body products with a higher conscience

Out of all my years of being a massage therapist and blending my own massage oils , the idea to start a business was born. My first business was named GingerMade and started back in 2011. In 2013 I a decision was made to start a new business. Purring Buddha is the new beginning of something bigger, better and with a higher purpose.

Buddha is the name of my cat. Without going into too much detail, he lost a leg back in March of 2013. I plan on starting up a blog soon to give a better story of Buddha the 3 legged cat but for now we'll start here. Please follow us on Facebook for updates, news and other info.

Welcome to Purring Buddha. I make artisan soap, bath and body products with the finest ingredients I can afford. I use as much organic and locally sourced ingredients as possible. Most of what I do includes essential oils with the exception of the occasional fun project with fragrance and glitter. I try to keep all of my soaps vegan and palm free. While I'm not vegan myself, I respect it and believe life is about little choices you make here and there to make a difference and raising your conscience.
