We are currently recovering from an action-packed weekend at the Country Living Fair in Stone Mountain, GA! We had a kickin’ booth thanks to all the help before, during, and after the show from our friends and family! And our customers came and came! We can’t thank everyone enough for your support.
Today, one of our customers from the Country Living Fair who bought Lemon Butter Sage soap, informed us that she loved it… needed more… but couldn’t find it on our website! So WE FIXED that :)
One of our newer soaps, Lemon Butter Sage is now available ONLINE HERE! And the mini is available here!
We are always looking for new and fun ways to recycle so we are very excited to introduce to you Kaleidosoap! We have taken our soap loaf end pieces, and other odd remnants of soap that wouldn’t have had much use to us before and chopped and diced them into little pieces of soap, added them to our creamy wonderful soap base of coconut, olive, palm and soy oils with shea butter and vitamin E added in to create this fun little bar of goodness! No two bars are exactly the same! You get a little surprise of different scents with each bar. It’s a softer scent experience, so if you don’t prefer the stronger smelling scents, or you just can’t decide which scent is your favorite….. this is the bar for you! You can order on line at http://www.numenaturalsoap.com/product/kaleidosoap-upcycled-soap/ with free shipping on orders over $25! Hope you enjoy this new addition to our soap line! Stay tunned for even more new scents about to be announced soon!
Ok, so truth be known,…..we are a little late in getting this blog post out. We have been a proud display resident in the Whole Foods Market Merchants Walk in East Cobb since late July! And,..we could not be happier and honored to be there! The Body Care team there is top notch! We were welcomed right away not only by the staff but customers were so friendly there….like this shopper named Rich :) He bought a couple of bars before we could even get set up!! It was great! Ever since we have had orders coming in on a regular steady basis!! :) Which is fantastic!! We feel very Blessed to be a part of the Body Care Dept. in all the Whole Food Markets we are currently in, because the bar is raised very high there, you must have a good clean quality product with only pure ingredients to even be considered. It’s also great that being “local” is highly respected there and customers love nothing more than to find a good local carrier of their favorite products! So if you live in the East Cobb area please go check us out! The address is – 1311 Johnson Ferry Road, Marietta, Ga 30068. Below are photo’s of The Whole Foods Market Body Care Team helping us get set up, and Rich, a customer who fell in love with our soap on the spot! Happy Shopping! :)
Isn’t that what they say?? With Texas being SO big, we happened upon a FABULOUS hidden secret that we’d love to share. The last time my family and I went to Louisiana to visit my folks, we made a day trip to Henderson, Texas, to check out a precious shop called Not So Shabby. It’s located in downtown at 110 East Main, Henderson TX 75652. If peering into their gorgeous front windows weren’t enough – stepping IN is a MUST.
Jena Williams and her creative team there at the shop have boundless creativity when it come to having an eye for unqiue items, not only to have in your home, but to wear too. I’ve attached a little eye candy for y’all below…
LOVE the ladders to use in the display:):)
For more information on their shop, you can check out their FB page – Not So Shabby:) You can check out their page for more ‘happenings’ with them. We’re SO pleased to have our very first store in Texas to carry NuMe – and the town of Henderson itself couldn’t be cuter:)
With the summer passing before we know it, there’s just enough time to grab a friend, pack a bag and hit the open road for a ‘Thelma & Louise’ road trip through the south. Y’all enjoy the summer sun:)

On a personal note……I have to say that I have been in love with our Lemongrass soap for such a long time. Back when I 1st came to know it at “The Paisley Farmhouse”, it was “that scent” that made me fall in love with all of the other scents. It is that wonderful smell that takes me back in time to my little gift shop from a few years back, in Milton, Ga still today. I never dreamed at the time I would end up co-owning NuMe Natural soap some years later, but God sure did lead me to some new interesting doors thankfully after my store closed the end of 2010. We have since created many new wonderful scents that I deeply adore,… but Lemongrass will always hold a special part of my heart :) And has always been a top seller for us, no doubt!
Did you know that,……Lemongrass is a kind of scented grass that is originated in India. It has been extensively used in traditional Indian medicine for years. And…it’s because of its herbal and medicinal properties, that lemon grass is so effective in skin and body care products. One health benefit of lemongrass is the pure aromatherapy, is one of the most desired essential oils to add to natural soap because of its fresh citrus fragrance. This dark yellow or amber oil is extracted through steam distillation from dried lemon grass. In terms of the health benefits of lemongrass essential oil which is a main ingredient of our Lemon grass soap,…, it is found to be good for muscle relaxation, depression, digestion, fever, and infections. For example, its analgesic and sedative properties help to calm and relax muscles, reduce pain from ailments (e.g., headaches and menstrual cramps), as well as relieve jet lag.
In terms of skin care uses, because of it’s antibacterial, astringent and antiseptic properties. It is perfect for soaps and creams to soothe broken or inflamed skin.
As for me….. the main attraction is obviously the alluring aromatherapy for its pleasing and uplifting effects, but as you can see the list goes on & on! Use coupon code : Lemongrass10 to receive 10% off through May 10th!
Thanks for reading our blog post! :)
Spring in definitely in the air – thank goodness!! Folks are getting out into their yards, letting the tops down on their cars and headed to the historic Marietta Square in Cobb County. This turn of the centruy square is filled with specialty shopping and a variety of unique restaurants. They’re having theater and museum events all-year-round!!

A Beautiful new line of salvaged wood trays!…. As many of you know my husband Larry is the creator and talent behind “Farmwoods”. His rustic wood trays and mini soap crates are his latest creations. Many of our retail shops already proudly display their NuMe Natural Soap on one of his awesome trays or a custom display piece that he made just for them. His trays and other “this and that’s” we have requested along the way, have sort of been a part of our soap company from the beginning. But make no mistake…..my husband is very happy to be an anonymous creator behind the scenes with little fanfare for himself, but every now and then I think a glimpse into the artist workshop helps the buyer understand the workmanship & hard work that goes into each and every piece.
The new Collection, (inspired by our daughter Shanda), has beautiful touches of color in the hardware to bring a fresh new spin on these rustic hearty trays. What do you get when you buy a Farmwoods handmade tray? You get a one of a kind piece of art, with various toned wood grains, visible nails,… cracks, chips and other possible salvaged wood characteristics are all common. It’s all part of it’s hard to resist charm,… it’s as if every piece has a story to tell. NuMe Natural Soap will be displaying the new line in our booth at the upcoming Country Living Fair October 26th, 27th & 28th! So come out to Stone Mountain to see the entire unveiled collection, and of course pick up our awesome show specials of all you favorite NuMe Natural soaps! We have some new items we can’t wait to share with you at the show by the way! More blogging to come soon on NuMe going to the Country Living Fair for the 1st time! It’s sure to be an adventure :) By the way….we love to hear from you, so please leave us a comment telling us how you like the look of this new line, or if you are planning on going to the Country Living Fair this year? We have actually never been so fill us in on what is was like in previous years. What did you like, what did you not like, you know all that good stuff :) We thank all of you for your support and ongoing encouragement!
