  • All That's Old is NEW again! Ancient Alchemy's old soap line is back...

    Hello Kind Followers! As promised, the old soap line is comin' back! We've added 15 soaps thus far, more on the way! We started with autumn and *holiday favorites* as this TIS the season! Hope you find these selections inspiring for your gift-giving, as well as for your own personal pampering! Some newbie soaps are: Cacao & Honey Soap, and Pomegranate Cider. All I can say is, YUM!!! And a cool scent trick, too, is...(I do this all the time) is to take a potato peeler and peel off strips of soap off your fragrant soap bar and put in your potpourri bowl to scent your house deliciously! Nice for when you have an artificial Christmas tree to do this with Christmas Tree Farm soap! We also updated our site "story", giving you a bit deeper insight to how this 25 year old biz originated..... Please note that we also offer GIFT CARDS for those folks who like to "pick their own", as well as last minute gift-giving that you need to do on-the-fly for someone you forgot to get something for! We all have those! These are available right up till Christmas! Soon to follow are more of our "regular fare" soaps like: Cleo's Secret, Lavender Fields, Verbena Tangerina, etc. As we sail into the busiest time of year, take time to reflect on all the good, and do take care of yourself! And heads up! It's apparently true what they project about the flu shot taking at least two weeks to take effect. I had one, and at exactly the two week mark, I got the flu anyway and was out of commission for a week. Gah! Take care.... In other holiday gift idea news, we've stocked our Etsy Shoppe with lots of handmade one-of-a-kind warm woolens for the season! Come see if our neck warmers, shawls, or other wraps appeal to you! Thanks for your interest and support of small handmade business! Always deeply appreciated! I am thankful for you all! Sincerely, Carol Ancient Alchemy www.ancientalchemy.com

  • Ancient Alchemy Soap Line Change--AGAIN!

    ​ Dear Customers... Something I've always prided myself on as a business-owner these many years since I first opened shop back in 1994, is I always try to listen to you and use your feedback, adapt it to what I offer, if it is also in alignment with my own company and product visions and standards. Last year when I decided to offer only all organic ingredient soaps, etc., I began to slowly receive a lot of feedback. And most of it revolved around PRICE. Many of you loved the new soaps, missed some of the old ones, but with these inflationary times we're living in, price was becoming a painful deterrent...gas or premium soap? And there's no way around it, "organic" DOES COST MORE. More and more I was also hearing, "I really miss your old line! It was my one creature comfort I enjoyed ordering consistently!" ​ So guess what? ​ I'm bringing back the old soap line formula (not all of the ingredients are organic), but in limited quantity. It will probably remain at a menu of about 15 soaps, with occasional seasonal offerings as per holidays, etc. Organic or not, base ingredients HAVE gone up though worldwide, so soap bar price will be around the $10 - $11 mark, which I can't help that. Oils like olive oil have exploded in price. It's going to take me a bit of time to get that soap made and the website shopping cart updated, and I am in the middle of some pretty huge store orders from long-time wholesale clients, but I just wanted to give you a heads-up on that and let you know it is coming. And as always, I appreciate your feedback. If you have more to say, hit me up at: ancientalchemy@aol.com THANKS! Oh and hey, if you're into handcrafteds, like woolen fibery fancies, come visit my Etsy Shop! We've got lots of Halloween-themed items! Craftily yours,​ Carol www.ancientalchemy.com ​ ​
