Oatmeal, Milk and Honey soap

My second most popular soap for the last 4 years: Oatmeal, (Coconut) Milk and Honey ! (pst… my charcoal soap is in first place). Thanks to everyone who has fallen in love with this soap and made it so popular! The deeds: If you’re looking for a natural soap bar that provides nourishment and moisture to dry, chapped skin, then this bar is for you! Batty’s Bath Oatmeal, Milk and Honey Cold Press Soap is made with all natural, premium skin care oils, pure coconut milk and exfoliating oats. Since it’s made from scratch, the old fashioned way, it lasts for a super long time! Many of my customers cut these bars in half and take a month to go through just the first half of the bar! Think about how much TLC that will add up to for your skin! Want to know more about what makes Batty’s Bath OMH Soap so awesome? head over to shopbattysbath.com for more info. (Aug 11)

Batty's saves a birdy

So glad I found this little birdie before the dogs did today! Birdie was in the backyard and didn’t want to move or fly away, so I moved birdie to just outside the fence so the dogs couldn’t get him/her (but close enough to where I found birdie so momma bird can come get him/her). I heard a bird up in one of the trees close by being super vocal so I’m hoping it was momma bird, and she’s already stepped in and gotten her baby back. I’ll need to check soon before the sun goes down completely. If birdie is still there I don’t want the neighborhood cats getting him/her. (Aug 11)

Batty's garden

The pumpkin and sunnies report! On the left- I’ve only found one pumpkin so far, but it’s getting grander and bigger each day! Also, lots of new blooms have popped up including this promising one (top left). On the right- lots of sunnies! All the ones in the front flowerbeds mysteriously were snapped in half (along with a missing solar light…hmm), but the ones in the back are doing great! All stretching and turning to get as much sun as possible. The birds have already started enjoying them. (Aug 15)
