Moisturizing Bath Bombs

It is simply gorgeous outside and I’m sure there will be no more snow! And that means that hot-tub/whirlpool/jacuzzi season is just around the corner! So, last few days I have been perfecting my Bath Bomb recipe. I had a ton of fun doing that! What exactly is a Bath Bomb? Bath Bombs, or Bath Fizzies, are like giant alka-seltzers for your bath: they spin, whirl and swirl in your bath while releasing scent and skin-softening agents. There are many different Bath Bombs out there but Marmalade Hills’ Bombs are natural, gentle, moisturizing, fun and are packed with skin-loving ingredients.
This season I have come up with two types of bombs: Queen of the Nile with softening Coconut Milk and Luxurious Silky Bath Bombs with real silk fibers! Cleopatra was famous for her beautiful skin. Her royal secret was indulging herself with milk baths! It is not a secret anymore, thanks to the extensive research of modern laboratories we know that lactic acid in milk is an alpha hydroxy acid, a natural material that dissolves the glue that holds dead skin cells together. Milk can cleanse the skin down to its deepest layers without over-drying it.

MH’s Luxurious Silky Bath Bombs will turn your any-day bath experience into a Spa Ritual! They are full of skin-loving indulgences and will leave your skin silky smooth, literally.

All of our Bath Bombs are richly fragranced and infused with Extra Virgin Coconut Oil and creamy Mango Butter!

We are proud to offer completely biodegradable packaging for our Bath Bombs!

Go ahead and indulge yourself...responsibly!

First product party

In a few weeks will be my first product party at one of my dear friend’s friend house. It should be a fun event with champagne and strawberries and a whole dining room dedicated only to Marmalade Hills! I’m planning to have a pile of samples for most of my products and also for those who are interested I will offer a facial routine using Oatmeal Honey Soap, followed by our signature dry mask, then the Toner and to finish everything off with MH™ Luxury Omega Serum… Believe me – you will be blown away by results! I’m so excited and super nervous about the party! And being a perfectionist at heart doesn’t help at all :) I keep rethinking everything over and over and over again… Someone else may say “No big deal!” but for me this will be my first organized showcase of my products and I must say, it will be a good practice before this year’s craft shows that I’m planning to attend. I will probably take quite a few pictures and I promise to submit an extensive report on how it all went.

Stay tuned!

Spring events in Metro Detroit

There are quite a few events that will be going on around town this spring. Unfortunately we will not be participating as a vendor in any of them, but we will definitely pay a visit and we encourage all of our friends to come and meet our metro Detroit’s crafting community.
There are many advantages of shopping handmade and local these days: handmade items make a better gift because the recipient will receive something unique that is one-of-a-kind. It is the result of craftsmanship that is absent in the world of mass production. Buying handmade items from local artisans will directly benefit local crafters and Michigan economy because we are leaving our money in-state; and buying handmade is better for the environment because most artisans operate on small scale which doesn’t have an accumulating environmental effects that all of the mass manufacturers do.

Please come and meet with us at these events:
Craft Revival  Green Street Fair

Bring everyone you know! Hope to see you there!
