Hello and welcome back!

Recently, as promised, I had the chance to make the 100% pure Ginger essential oil soap.  The ginger aroma is truly lovely and smells like freshly-shaven ginger root, but as lovely as the ginger aroma is, I found that the cost of this particular EO is quite a bit more than the other EOs – and that I’d have to charge more than my current bar price for this particular aroma.  If you’re interested though, I would be more than happy to make the soap available upon request, just contact me and we’ll make arrangements.

I recently got back from a trip to the Swiss Alps.  The trip was filled with amazing day hikes in the foothills of the Matterhorn, Eiger, and Jungfrau mountains.  The air was so crisp and fresh, and the wild flowers growing in the rocks along the trail were so beautiful.  Chalet window boxes were overflowing with colorful geraniums, and there were even fragrant lavender plants growing in little flower pots at some train stations! Truly inspiring.  When I got back to Pennsylvania, I quickly made a batch of our Lavender 100% pure essential oil bath soap (EO origin France) – didn’t want the vacation to end!

On the cycling home front, our local town of Pottstown, Pennsylvania recently held its annual Bike Race/Criterium on Sunday July 22nd.   The event was ‘rain or shine’ and the turn-out generated decent attendance even though there was some rain. The event was like a big, festive block party.  There were 9 different categories of racing, and the participants included amateur and professional cyclists of all ages.  Plus, the first 50 kids that registered (for free) received a free bike helmet (and even the volunteers received free bike helmets).  Contact for information regarding how to register and/or volunteer for the event in 2019.  FYI…All racers must have a racing license from the USA Cycling Federation.

Plus, an upcoming bicycling trail ride event and music festival, (sponsored by the Schuylkill River Greenways and a local brewery) called ‘Ride for the River’, is being held on Saturday September 29th 2018.  The ride will begin and end in Pottstown, Pennsylvania.  For information on this fun 16-mile or 40-mile ride, or to register online visit:  This event benefits the ‘Schuylkill River Trail’ – and you, of course!
