Our Menu of Seasonal Specials...

Scents of the seasons.  We adore wearing an inspired fragrance that is fresh from our gardens within the season that it is growing.  Fruits, vegetables, and herbs are all so abundant during the late spring, mid-summer, and early fall.  It is during those specific times that we harvest our gardens to prepare fragrances and materials for our recipes.  We make every effort to foresee particular ingredients’ popularity in our planning meetings for our new garden selections.  As you can imagine with all the glorious choices we have to be careful in our planning.  Even with all that effort and planning with you and your families in mind, nature, though bountiful, can only provide so much.  Collections listed in this section is dependent on seasonal ingredients, so when you find something that you really love, please request it as soon as possible because when it’s gone, it is gone until the following growing season.

* Note: While many of our items are available locally, our inventory at these shops changes daily. If you are looking for a specific product locally, we urge you to make a phone call before making the trip!

Basil, Sage & Oakmoss

Fresh, crisp, and clean smelling.  Unisexy fragrance that lingers a sharp freshness all day long.  We’ve created a three layering process with soap, lotion, and shaving cream .  It is a customer favorite and one of the first soaps that we created.  The freshness comes from the Basil leaves.  We use those sample basil leaves to make pesto for our families.  The crispness comes from the added lemongrass.  He endnotes are smoky from Sage.  Oakmoss binds those fragrances all together to make them last all day into the evening.  A Mid Atlantic Bed and Breakfast favorite.

Brown Turkey Fig

Fig! Seriously, wonderfully sweet Brown Turkey Fig.  Our neighbor Lisa has the best figs in the County – by our accounts, the world over.  They are fleshy and warm and buttery and make a decadent soap.  This fragrance was inspired by a jar of Fig Butter that she brought over.  Good enough to eat then good enough to rub all over your body was the thinking here.  It has almost all of the same ingredients as her butter.  We use all parts of the Brown Turkey Figs including the seeds for a gentle exfoliate except in the lotion.  No need for it there if you’ve already exfoliated with the soap.

Heather & Rose

Soft rose fragrance derived from petite pink tea roses.  It is naturally colored pink from the crushed petals of the roses and a little indigo.  It is creamy, romantic and calming.  This soap and lotion layers the fragrance to lingers with a gentle, subtle musky rose.

Lavender Fields

This is not your grandma’s lavender.  It’s soft, sensual and gentle.  What’s missing from the old lavender fragrance is the camphor smell.  We grow Lavandual intermedia ‘Grosso’ which is one of the most famous perfume lavenders grown in Grasse, France.  We don’t use other lavenders to bulk the distiller.  If we run out of Grosso flowers then this soap will be taken off of availability until the following June because there is just no substitute.  By the way, this bar is not purple because lavender oil is sort of a greenish dull brown.  Pretty but not purple.   We have been making this recipe for over 18 years.

Monarda & Tarragon

Monarda is also known as Bergamot or Bee Balm and is just delicious smelling.  It has a very sweet apple fragrance.  Monarda is wonderful on its own but we added Tarragon for a nice balance of sweet and spiciness.  French Tarragon is a prolific grower in our gardens and we love it on everything.  It was a natural choice to extract the oil and add it to our soaps and lotion.  The essential oil is delivered in a creamy bar that lathers well and the lotion finishes to a powdery smoothness.

Pear & Vanilla

Soft vanilla with a sweet Japanese apple pear extract that makes both men and women feel light and  amorous making it as close to a love potion as we’ve ever created.  The apple pears come from our neighbor’s orchard in Darlington, Maryland.  Please note, because we cannot grow “vanilla stabilizer” in our gardens, you will notice that the soap will darken with exposure.   Slight color variations are expected and should be embraced in any of the soaps that contain vanilla.  It is an attractive and warm toffee color that enhances the overall experience.

Pomegranate & Cassis

This is the sweetest, most mellow pomegranate we’ve ever experienced.   Our best guess is because it is natural.  There is nothing cloying to the sweetness of this combination of seeded fruit and French blackberries.  The fragrance has a softness that lasts all day when layered after the bath with the lotion.  The soap has a pleasant fleshy pink tone that adds to the experience.
