After struggling for a few weeks I’ve made the command decision that the “Selkie” essential oil blend that many of you know and love from Selkie Herbal Detangler is going to become the default signature scent for both the upcoming salve and the shampoo and conditioner bars. That way all the products will smell lovely together and I can stop trying to come up with three different-but-not-the-same but also complimenting but also not ungodly expensive essential oil blends.
What I’d love from you:
Pop over to Patreon for a poll and tell me if you’d like to see shampoo/conditioner bars or salve first. The poll is open to anyone, not just Patrons, but you may need to sign up for a Patreon account to answer (and if you’re not a Patron, nothing would make my day better than if you became one!).
Let me know if you have any suggestions for the scent name in the comments, either here or on Patreon (though you get Moonseeds if you do it here!). This is not the name of the new products, just the name for the essential oil blend currently in Selkie. I was thinking something like “NightBlooming Mist” but not that (as it’d be confusing with the misters I sell) but some name for the “selkie” essential oil blend that will now become the NB signature scent in products.
The release plan is to do the scented version of both products first, and then the unscented versions of both (if I can make them work so they don’t smell awful). I don’t know exactly when this will happen: I’m still trying to slot product development and packaging development in around keeping up with all the current items at NightBlooming, the full time day job, and a whole lot of DIY on the house because it’s summer. Sorting out which product comes first, though, will give me a little shove to making it happen.
