You may not know this, but “Shenanigans” is one of my all-time favorite words. According to Google, Shenanigans means: “secret activity or maneuvering. silly or high-spirited behavior; mischief”
Thanks sounds exactly like what’s been going on at Shorganics. We definitely have some secret, and not-so-secret, stuff happening – and it’s all the shenanigans that have caused me to be delinquent in posting. Apologies, my dears.
You may have noticed we’re working on updating our website! This is very exciting and our new site is SOOOOO much more powerful and more awesome than our last site. Be sure you check it out as soon as it’s up!
The secret stuff is still secret – sorry. It’s the reason we’ve been so busy and so MIA in many respects. We can give you hints…
We hope you’re subscribed to the best vegan beauty box which is delivered to your door monthly!!
We’ve been working hard (and by we, I mean Matt) to make shipping on our website reflective of what your purchasing. Now, the shipping rate is variable based on the items in your cart! This will help you save money when placing an order at the Shorganics website. We’re very excited about this and you should be to!
Now go tell your friends and family so can we share the Shorganics love with everyone!
Welcome to our new series of posts! Treatment Tuesday is designed to help you coordinate Shorganics products into your very own at-home spa treatment. With the cold winter weather getting worse, it’s important to take care of your skin and ensure it’s properly hydrated. Using products made with organic ingredients help keep your skin pure and free of pesticide residue and other weird synthetic chemicals.
Hop into the shower (actually, step gingerly – no need to get hurt)
Take a 2 fingers and scoop a bit of salt scrub onto your hand.
Massage scrub all over your body – you’ll notice the salt begin to melt
Repeat step 2 and 3 if you need more for your body 🙂
Rinse scrub from your skin (feel free to sing a song while you do this – what’s life without whimsy)
Turn off water (duh) and step out of the shower and pat dry your skin
It’s important you pat down your skin with a towel to dry it instead of rubbing it. By rubbing a towel over your skin, you can actually exacerbate dry and flaky skin. Patting allows your skin to absorb the moisture from the water and removing the excess.
Eucalyptus Tea Tree is probably our favorite soap at Shorganics. It’s hard to pick just one favorite, but if I had to, it would be Eucalyptus Tea Tree. There is something undeniably fresh and tingly about this combination of essential oils that leaves your body and your mind refreshed and feeling clean. Both eucalyptus and tea tree oils were used by Australian military troops in World War II for treatment of minor wounds on the battlefield. Tea tree oil was so highly desired during this time, tea tree farmers and distillers were exempt from the draft!
The best part about this tingly soap, besides all the organic butters and plant oils, is how the oils don’t overpower you. Both eucalyptus and tea tree can be overpowering individually, but together, in this soap, the scent is pleasant, fresh, and invigorating. Try some today, or check out our 3 pack of soap or 5 pack of soap for an even better value!!
Our cuticle salve started off as a personal mission for us because our cuticles were constantly cracked, dry, and causing painful hangnails. We wanted to make something small enough to fit in a pocket, but packed a big punch when applied. After many, many, many tweaks, our cuticle salve was born. It’s perfect for anyone who works a lot with their hands: artists, jewelry designers, wood crafters, sculptors, gardeners, farmers… you get the idea.
It’s creamier than other cuticle salves so you don’t have to work hard to apply it and it doesn’t leave your fingers feeling greasy. It also has Moroccan Argan oil which provides fantastic nourishment to your nails and cuticles. You’ll love how long a small jar lasts and at only $5.00, they’re perfect to give as gifts!
As we head into the dry months of the year, you’ll certainly want to stock up on Lavender Lemon body butter. It’s super rich and made from pure, organic plant butters and oils. Even though it’s solid, it will melt on contact with your skin – just like real (or vegan) butter!
Our beautiful body butter contains no water, giving it a creamier and richer feel than traditional body lotions. It’s great for people who spend a lot of time in the sun and for those with ultra-dry skin. Many of our beach customers swear by our body butter because it helps keep those summer tans from looking too matte. And yes, gentlemen, if you are spending a lot of time outside, you can benefit from this body butter too. And I promise this: you won’t end up smelling like a girl (unless you really want to). It’s time for men, both indoorsy and outdoorsy, to keep their skin moisturized and hydrated.
Just remember, a little body butter goes a long way! Enjoy!
