New Stuff Happening at Osmia Organics!

So, you've probably seen these images of us with our big, heavy tools if you follow us on social media. We bought the space next door, designed a new lab, made more room for packing up your orders, and commissioned the coolest soap curing rack ever. We are finally in our new space, and loving every corner of it! If you're ever in the area, please stop by and let us give you a tour!
Our soaps cure here for 8 weeks before we wrap them up and send them off to you!
We've also been remodeling a few other things, like our new, gorgeous website, which is finally up!! (Pollen Brands in NYC did our new site, and they are FANTASTIC - check out their cool site, too.) We can't wait to share the new look with you, as well as a few new products and some awfully pretty new packaging. So, while you're sipping your coffee or ignoring an overly chatty coworker, please check it out and tell us what you think! Also, we want your experience on the site to be excellent, so please email us with any issues as we transition to the new platform.
A few noteworthy points:
- The long-awaited Luz Facial Brightening Serum will be released on Thursday, August 7. We are officially releasing it at A Night For Green Beauty in Los Angeles, and will have a promotional code for use on the website during the event, from 5-10 PM (Pacific), so stay tuned! It works beautifully in conjunction with the Luz Enzyme Facial Soap, and we can't wait to hear how you like (or LOVE) it!
- Our prices have changed a little bit - some up, some down - but more up than down. We made these changes in response to the ever-increasing cost of the beautiful, organic ingredients we choose for our products. We wish we didn't have to do it, but we do. So, consider it an investment in yourself, don't stay mad, and know that we wouldn't increase prices if it weren't absolutely necessary.
- Our newsletter will be a bit different - as in, it will actually happen. Regularly. We wanted to call it "So Much Betta Than a Newsletta". Sadly, that didn't seem posh enough. So, we decided to call it Osmia Infusions. It will come once every 1-2 weeks, and it will be short and sweet. We are not going to pummel you with sales pitches. Instead, we want to share the Osmia Life with you. With creative writing and photography, healthy, delicious recipes, fun Spotify playlists, ingredient spotlights, and skin care topics, Osmia Infusions is meant to infuse your day with small doses of the things we love and think you will love, too. If you don't love it, you can unsubscribe! But, we hope you'll look forward to it, share it with friends, and find that it affects you in a positive, health-affirming, happiness-finding kind of way. Oh, and we will have occasional secret coupon codes just for those who receive it, so that's a lil' perk, too.
- The Natural Perfume Sampler is finally here! We have had lots of requests for larger samples, so we put together this adorable little box with 5 large samples (three times the size of the old samples). You may choose any 5 samples, and we will nestle them in this pretty little box. It also makes an excellent gift, especially for someone whose neck you'd like to nuzzle...
So, that's our news at the moment. Thank you so much for being the world's most wonderful customers, and for helping us grow! We can't wait to share more with you over the years to come.
Much love from us to you -
Sarah & The Osmia Crew
