    Hopefully, you will have it by Monday! I wish I had gotten it in the mail sooner -- there are so many little things that take longer than I expected!

    For instance, on the new jars, I want to use a temporary label until we get the real ones done (y'all just got mailing labels stuck on the gladware containers ) but even making temporary labels for the jars and having the right paper to print on takes more time than I would have thought.

    I guess that is why one starts small, so one can learn these things!

    I'm anxious to see if y'all like it.

    Got the PM and sent $$ through PayPal for shipping Can't wait to try the soap! Like I said in my PM, you couldn't have shipped at a better time - I will have just enough time after receiving it to at least clean all of my tack for the clinic I'm riding in next weekend

    If the cobalt jars hold up, I think some sort of exchange/recycling system would be great... kind of like the glass jars that local creamery yogurts and milks come in. Glad that the jars were as nice in person as you thought they'd be!

    I am planning on letting everyone in the barn try it and see how they all like it. BUT if it's really, really nice and smells wonderful and I love it, then maybe I'll just hoard it all for myself, heheheheheheh.

    Now I have an excuse as to why I didn't clean all of this tack before now. I just had some ESP that I should wait.

    Pics of the new blue jars, filled and with labels -- temporary ones, since I've got a COTH friend helping me with the graphic design for some better, more sophisticated ones. Now, I feel badly that all you testers are only getting gladware containers! Though, the gladware/ziploc/rubbermaid containers are what I have made it in for the last ten years. . .

    Please, pay no attention to the few additional April pictures -- that is, though, the wonderful Sammy, the incredible vibrating horse from Lord Helpus, who is getting his jaw x-rayed in one picture https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?...1&l=1496cfe7d7

    Wow! Love the jars and labels (even if only temporary for now). I think the product name and individual names for scents turned out really well!

    Thanks, guys!! I'm pretty excited. I love the silver lids that I also got to test, but the labels don't look nearly as nice on them

    But, that is what the test period is about!

    Wheeee!

    I am a sucker for packaging - I *adore* the blue jars! Anything that looks old (and therefore stands the test of time) is aces (no pun intended) in my book. I'll definitely buy some either before or after you starting really selling it!

    Mine came yesterday! Smells wonderful! Love it so far! Do you use it "as is", like a bar soap, or do you soften it first?

    Ohhh, I am so glad you already got it!

    I take the wet sponge and apply it to the soap, wipe on and wipe off. It will suds up if you get it really wet -- I never do that unless I've got a really dirty piece of tack.

    It is basically like a conditioning bar soap in a jar -- did my package insert make sense and seem appropriate?!

    Wheeeeee!

    I can't wait to try it! Also, definitely do something with the frankincense!!! I love that scent. The new jars look awesome, I like the white lids better than the silver Looks very clean and fresh!

    This looks awesome-can't believe I just saw this thread. If you need another tester let me know . I'll definitely order some when you get things up and running if it as good is everyone is saying!
