Our stockist, Robin, has expressed an urgent need for some delectable Lavender Soaps and we are more than happy to oblige!
They smell divine!
Once we get these all packed up and off to their new home we’ll have to set about making more: our stock of Lavender Soap is almost gone! We’re considering altering our method so there are no longer lavender buds throughout the soap, just on top. What do you think? Do you prefer some gentle exfoliation through the entire bar or a smooth bar with decorative elements on top?
I am in the incredibly lucky position of being able to take some time to devote myself wholly to Radiant Fettle. Previously, it had been a very limited, part-time endeavor. After receiving great feedback from many people, learning more about … Continue reading →
We have recently been reading up on Japa mala and decided to make one for a dear friend of ours. We absolutely love the result and hope they do, as well!
We found a gorgeous druzy stone to use as our guru bead. In stone lore this pretty quartz stone is said to magnify the effects of the other stones.
Small, red carnelian stones were included to improve health, aid vitamin absorption, stimulate the sacral chakra and heal the base chakra.
Oblong stones of amazonite were added to help balance and ground while providing gentle guidance toward inner harmony and quieting overpowering thoughts.
Amethyst was added because it is the amazing “all-healer” of stones and is great for soothing nerves and supporting the emotional body and bringing people back to center. We chose rose quartz as our marker beads because we wanted to imbue this mala with love and rose quartz is the stone of love! It also assists people in accepting necessary change and is especially supportive of the female reproductive system.
We had so much fun creating this Japa mala for our friend that we intend to create more to offer to our customers! We will add them to our shop as we complete them.
We are ecstatic to bring to you the charming work of Dallas native, Andrea Brashier. We have long lusted after her work and are eager to present it to you now that we’ve had our chance to sit down and admire it ourselves.
We adore them! All of these were created under the diligent and gentle hands of a true artist and we know they’ll look stunning in any setting.
These bowls are glazed inside so they are food safe, but not dishwasher safe. They are also great as decor, which is what we’ve done with them until they find new homes. We hope you love them as much as we do! Be sure to have a look-see at the Etsy listings for each for more pictures and exact measurements of each.

With the days growing gradually longer as we work our way through winter we wanted to pause a minute and thank everyone who has made this year amazing for us. We have given away almost all of our early adopter bags and gained immeasurably valuable experience this year all while enjoying the company and encouragement of the wonderful people we’ve met along the way.
We hope your holidays are beautiful and we can’t wait to see what the new year has in store for all of us! Our intentions are to manifest a magnificent 2014 and we hope you’ll do the same!
We would like to share with you a few of the small delights that we enjoy during our daily goings-on:
The first cut into a new bin of extra virgin organic coconut oil.
Melting beeswax pastilles.
Finding small snakes in the yard.
Detail of painting by Misty Foster. Expanding our art collection.
Tightly-wound chilly cats.
Un-molding and trying new soaps.
Of course there are many more: too many to document here.
What are some of your favorite things?
Today we’re playing with label design and shrink wrap for our bars of soap.
