How are you holding up at the moment?
We find ourselves in a bit of a scary place right now and if I'm honest it's making me nervous as I'm sure you are too. Who knows how things will pan out but I wanted to reach out to you today to give you some good news. Goodness knows we could do with some of that right now.
As we're all coming to terms with what today looks like never mind tomorrow, I thought I'd try and give a bit back to help at these trying times for us all.
As we know, thorough and regular hand washing is always vital but is of utmost importance right now to give us all the best chance of keeping healthy and preventing the coronavirus from spreading.
To help out in a small way, I'm running a special offer on all my hand and body soaps from today and until the world returns to a more normal state. You can now buy 5 full size bars for £20 (normally £24.75) and I'll also include a free sample soap in your order too while stocks last, helping you stay cleaner for longer.
*** 5 bars of hand and body soap for £20 ***

Our soap is full of the good things like rich plant oils and butters, clays and botanicals and should not dry out the skin. If however you find your hands are becoming drier than usual due to the frequency of all that washing, you may need a good slathering of a rich moisturiser too. Last week I whipped up a batch or two of our skin loving body butter bars which are great to help seal in moisture on arms and legs but also really helpful on dry hands too. They are rich and buttery and take a little while to fully absorb but the really do help re-hydrate the skin and keep hands softer after washing them so often..
*** 2 for £20 on all our Bath oils, Bath salts and Bath milks too ***

As an extra special treat and as self care is so important in times of stress and difficulty, you can also mix and match our bath oils, milks and salts in our 2 for £20 offer, also running for the foreseeable future. Create your own little self care ritual with a spot of luxurious bathing, why not add a face mask or scrub too? Looking after yourself is more important then ever before and I'm only too happy to be of service.
You can only use 1 discount code per transaction so if you'd like a mix of 5 for £20 soaps AND 2 for £20 bath goodies, you'll need to place 2 separate orders and I can combine them for you.
I'll just be dispatching orders twice weekly to minimise my contact with others and theirs with me so my new dispatch days will be Mondays and Thursdays.
I've taken the decision to remove the 'Collect from Studio' option for orders temporarily too for all our safety.
Despite all of the impact of the virus, have you noticed how the planet is healing? The imposed travel restrictions have drastically improved air quality in China, Italy and America, I feel it's the planet taking a big breath of fresh air. We all need to try and see little snippets of good and positive things at the moment, take care of each other.
I hope you find these little gestures helpful at this trying time for us all, I do have lots more to tell you but this will all have to wait until another newsletter so for now I just want to wish you all a safe and healthy next few weeks and months.
Until next time,
Ceri - Oakwood Soaperie
