On September 19, 2023 Earth Circle Creations signed a lease and moved into a new space!
Earlier this year, we moved from a house with a two and a half car garage (during covid) to larger home with a one-car garage. While this was a move up in house, the limit of space prevented us from making soaps since May, 2023. We had many things put into storage during this time and was able to sell our home. Moving into this space allows us to make soaps, accept visitors (by appointment only) and teach classes.
Looking from above the office area. This allows more elbow room with a 1000 square ft space, with loft. It’s not much to look at yet, we are still moving things out of storage and into this space. We should be back into production very soon.
While this move is in progress, we are saving money by moving things out of storage, clearing our (crowded) garage for other projects!
We are also looking for new suppliers. We were informed earlier this year that the makers of the fragrance oils, we had been using for the past 10 years, was retiring. This means, some of the fragrances we had been using, and many of the fragrances we have been using, will no longer be made until we find another supplier. Some of those that will be discontinued by Earth Circle Creations is:
We have been evaluating other suppliers, and have been very happy with a couple we have looking at so far. Others, not so much. Believe it or not, it is really difficult to mess up peppermint, but it does happen. 🙂
