It's time to move along

In the seven years of RitualBath, I have met some amazing artists, business people and participated in great shows.

After months of careful consideration I have come to a decision to close RitualBath.

There are many reasons, some are business related (I have learned more about trademark law in the last few months than ever before, thanks Heather and Lela) and some are personal (my heart isn’t in it). I still think I will create balms and potions for myself and my extended family but it is no longer a sustainable business for me to supplement my family.

I learned that I do love the people connection and I am not quite as introverted as I thought I was, though still no extrovert. That is probably what started this, I love to teach, and talk to people. I keep going back to sewing and fiber arts, what I did when I procrastinated or should have been marketing RitualBath. Maybe one day I will have an education/studio/store who knows, I am letting go and lightening up.

So for the next few weeks I will be closing out my stock. Keep in mind that this in no way reflects quality and I will not restock. I have too much respect for my fellow indie beauty and bath peers to keep this pricing up for long. We all put hard work and quality materials in our products so please give them your shopping support in the future.

Thank you for everything,
Lauren D

Working on RitualBath Wednesday

Sometimes I have things on my to do list that keep getting bumped farther and farther down the line. Ever have items like that. Mine was my Etsy titles, which should have had more importance but it didn't so today was the day. I edited all the titles for more SEO and relevancy search words and I hope that will help just one of the many facets of getting my products seen.

Food Friday

What is it about an appliance breaking at the wrong time? No oven to bake a birthday cake this weekend, store bought it is. Oh well.
I have also had a hard time meal planning because everything I come across uses the oven. I will work around it no prob it's just funny how our mind freaks out when you "can't" do something, seems it's all you want to do.
Here are some of the recipes I hope to try in the future but in the mean time maybe you can enjoy!

Winter Skin Soothers

Winter, snow, dry air, fires, heat, all things that can cause our skin to become dry and flaky. Our skin is one of our organs and has processes to protect and moisturize itself. Diet, environment and genetics can all play a role in how well this organ handles the onslaught of dry air and rapid temperature changes, but we can also help it work smarter instead of harder.
