Memorial Day is here and summertime’s calling! That summer ringtone means the beach in North Carolina. We are blessed to have a variety of terrain and seasons in our home state of NC. Where’s your favorite beach? From the wild barrier islands to family-friendly open beaches, North Carolina has a coastal home for everyone. No matter where your getaway is, summer means sand, salt, & sipping something cold. And we’re right on time.
Meet our new OBX Sea Salt Soap. I’ve made it with real sea salt – but only a touch, since it can be drying in large amounts. In this bar, we get the benefit of the detoxifying properties of sea salt – you know, the kind of seaweed wraps and salt scrubs from fancy spas – and still soothing that sun-worn skin. The fragrance is a combination of salty ocean air and warm beach grass that brings back the best of the beach (skipping the gritty sand in your pants and fake coconut sunscreen smell). We finished it off with the Carolina blue sky color and NC stamp that keeps your beach vacation top of mind.
Our Carolina OBX Sea Salt Soap is perfect to take with you on vacation, or to preserve it when you have to return to reality. It’s also a sweet gift to thank any beach house host you may be visiting this summer! Match our OBX soap with a jar of our NC honey and our new Sweet Tea Lip Balm, and you’ve got a beach bag stocked with summer.
Maybe you just need a small thank you or a bunch of them. Got you covered. All of our soap bars, lip balms, small honey jars and lotion bars each fit (individually) in our mini drawstring bags. Great teacher gifts, thank yous, or NC favors. All are available now in our Etsy shop or direct if you know how & where to reach me (hint: click here).
Even if you are only vacationing in your mind, take some time to savor the sweet gifts of the summer season. Southerners talk slow for a reason. Slow down and join in.
