It’s with a bit of sadness that I must announce “Nurtured by Nature“, our homemade skin product business, is closing, after six years of operation.
The business was really one of the seeds that prompted me to begin this blog so that makes it especially sentimental to me. The Lord has been so gracious as he used our financial despair to spark the idea of selling the products, and then lead me to this incredible, on-line community of women where much bigger things than soap have happened
I am so thankful for the hundreds of faithful customers and for the opportunity the Internet gave me to run this cottage industry.
And…what a blessing my friend, Dana, and her girls have been to me. They have been the hands behind the whole operation for the last four years, diligently and faithfully making our products and shipping them out to you and a lot more behind the scenes to keep it running. A huge THANK YOU to their family for helping us keep NBN alive for these six years.
Love Your Soap
I’m not leaving you without a “replacement recommendation”. (And I don’t get anything for this, except the satisfaction of recommending excellent products to you.)
Several years ago a lady contacted me about advertising her skin product business on my site. She said she had pondered starting the business and read my ebook, “Make & Sell Your Own Skin Products“, and decided to take the leap.
Browsing her products, I instantly knew she had a fabulous thing. (I don’t think my book had much to do with it; she just has a winning combination of business and marketing savvy, creativity and great recipes.) Not only have I used her yummy, delicious, all-natural products (OK so she sent me a box after the storm and I fell in love), but Natalie has become one of my dearest friends–truly a kindred spirit, for whom I also co-write at her site, Visionary Womanhood.
Apple Valley Natural Soap is the place from where you want to buy your natural skin products. You will be giddy to see the postman driving up and these treats are truly indulgent. Trust me. I know good skin stuff when I see it.
(And for some slight comic relief, having grown up in the eighties, the song by Boyz 2 Men won’t stop playing in my head…“It’s so hard, to say goodbye, to yesterday…”)
