February 2012 marks the re-launch of M Design Boutique! If you’ve been following MDB on facebook or Twitter, you’re probably wondering what I’ve been up to for the last couple of months of “working on the re-launch”.
Read on to learn about what changes you will be seeing including new ways to shop and pay!
What has changed?
You may have already noticed the new logo
This cosmetic change symbolizes the evolution and new focus in MDB. The logo is a Bayberry. Bayberries were the source of wax used by the pioneers in early America to make candles. My materials and products, over the years, have become reflective of historical, old-fashioned and environmentally friendly techniques and ingredients. The bayberry is a bright, pretty representation of MDB’s products and techniques.
Speaking of my products
My line of products in the past has ranged from arm warmers to jewelry to handbags to wedding favors. While I love making everything I’ve sold in the past, M Design Boutique now carries a more focused range of products. You will find two shops. One for candles made from specialty waxes, luxury bath, body and clean home products, and you will still find wedding and event candles and gifts. The second shop, MDB Weddings & Events continues to be all favors and gifts for, well, weddings and events of course!
More about the specialty waxes
My refined product line will now include more variety, and some of these waxes are premium, rare and higher in price. You will still find my highly mottled pillar candles, soy and palm candles and of course the beautiful beeswax candles.
You will now also find Bayberry, Candelilla and all-natural blends. I welcome custom requests so please do let me know if you have a specific request for a custom candle order! Be sure to click on that photo up there to enlarge it and see all of the waxes I work with in their raw form.
More about Bath & Body
M Design Boutique now offers luxury handmade bath and body products made with the best ingredients available. Each month I will add a new Essential Oil, beginning with Lavender in February. Pictured below is a Lavender Soy Candle, Essential Oil Infused Room Spray or Face Spritz, Lavender Bud Bath Salts, Lavender Closet Sachet, Hand-milled Soap, Bath Bombs, Fizzy Foot Soak and Bath Tea or Facial Steam. Watch for each of these products in the featured Essential Oil of the Month.
I make all bath and body products in small batches using ingredients inspired by nature and designed for beauty and relaxation. My products will not dry your skin and do not contain chemicals that can irritate sensitive skin. For those with extremely sensitive skin, I can make most of my products fragrance-free, and can advise you of moisturizing additives that are all-natural and non-allergenic. Ingredients include honey, goat milk, organically grown botanicals, oats, aloe, beeswax, herbs, essential oils, dead sea salt, almond oil, coconut oil and olive oil. New Products will be listed weekly.
More about Clean Home
Introducing a line of beautiful cleaning and fragrance products including all-natural homemade old fashioned laundry detergent, hand-dipped slow-cured incense and aromatherapy reed diffuser oil kits and room/linen spray. This line of fragrance and cleansing products will expand as time goes on. Designed with home decor in mind. Fragrant and beautiful too!
More about Weddings & Events
I will work with you to create wedding and event gifts and favors with your custom details in mind. I can take inspiration from your wedding flower, event theme, invitation or anything else you desire. The custom personalization adds a unique touch to your event, and my background in graphic design ensures a beautiful design every time! If you are looking for wedding and event favors and gifts only, please visit MDB Weddings and Events. You will also find all wedding and event items in M Design Boutique here (gifts) and here (favors).
