Product Review by The Cinnamon Hollow

We had the pleasure of having our great friend Crystal Martin from The Cinnamon Hollow try out some of our Bath & Body Products. She posted a review of our products on her blog The Cinnamon Hollow Bloggin'. I wanted to share the wonderful things she had to say. Here is her review:

Delightfully Enchanting!
Ok, so we were sent some of the most wonderful items to test from my great new friend Yuki, a representative for Enchanted Potions and owner of The Cuddly Crew.

*4oz Starlight Vanilla Honey Skin Revitalizer (reg price: $4.50)
*4oz Eucalyptus Solar Sea Salt (reg price: $4.00)
*4 oz Cosmic Body Lotion in Pink Sugar (type) Fragrance (reg price: $3.50)
*4 oz Smelly Jelly Air Freshener In Citrus Julep Fragrance (reg price: $3.50)
*Dryer Sachet in Angel Wings Fragrance(reg price: $2.00)
*And a little Hugs and Kisses Soap sample in Pink Sugar fragrance for my daughter!

The Starlight Vanilla Honey Skin Revitalizer is some of the most AMAZING bath goodness I have ever had the pleasure of trying. When you get ready to use it, you need to shake it up because it will be separated and look like lotion on the top and honey in the bottom. Shake it up to re-mix (easy peasy) and pour a little into your running bath water just like you would a bubble bath. Slide into the tub (careful, it's slippery) and soak up the delectable goodness. Oh my gosh I am NOT kidding. My legs were so soft and silky. You are literally taking soak in lotion (combined with other goodies of course)! What could be better than that?!?!?!

Nothing, I say! And the scent is so light and pleasant. It doesn't overpower your senses, so you can just sit and relax. Sooooooo good!

Eucalyptus Solar Sea Salt
Ok, I did NOT get to test this in the bath yet. :0(We were in the process of moving and I packed it in the wrong box and didn't find it until today so it is going into testing on Wednesday and I will report back here next week.

Cosmic Body Lotion in Pink Sugar (type) Fragrance
Anything that smells like Cotton Candy has to be good right? This lotion was no exception. It is light and rubs in wonderfully. The fragrance is strong enough to last all day without triggering my migraines and that is one HUGE plus in my book. Silky and smooth and left my skin soft. This lotion rubbed in very easily and didn't leave my hands feeling greasy. It contains a lot of extracts like honey, lemon, etc. As a reviewer, I do have to mention that it does have methylparaben and propylparaben (common preservatives) which some naturalists veer away from for various and understandable reasons, but in my testing it performed extremely well. A definite thumbs up on the lotion.

Smelly Jelly Air Freshener In Citrus Julep Fragrance
YUMMY! I got a SERIOUS craving for those little Orange Slices Candies after smelling this. You know, the ones that are like a jelly bean only covered in granulated sugar? Yup! Smells just like it with a hint of julep goodness. I didn't hold up well in our new house which is rather open and quite spacious but in our old house, which is smaller, it scented the room quite nicely. I am going to place it in the bathroom and give it another good testing because I have a feeling it will work wonderfully in there. I could definitely smell it when I passed by or if it was placed near a ceiling fan or air vent, but in the new house, it just had a little trouble holding up to the size of the rooms. Check back when we post the Sea Salt review because I am re posting on this as well!!!

Dryer Sachet in Angel Wings Fragrance
OOOHHHHHH These things are A-W-E-S-O-M-E! I have been doing boo coos of laundry this week and let me tell ya, this sachet has been put to good use. The Angel Wings (type) scent has a soft and wonderful baby powder fragrance and when you put it in the dryer and it gets warm, it scents your laundry very nicely. Some of the clothes were already clean but just needed some refreshing so I threw them in on fluff with the sachet and they smell, 'like an angel' (no pun intended). Buy some of these, you'll LOVE them!!!! And $2 bucks is an awesome deal!

Hugs and Kisses Soap sample in Pink Sugar (type) fragrance
What can I say? Our daughter loves this soap! Not only does she get to smell like mommy in the Pink Sugar (type) fragrance but she has her very own little soap that she doesn't have to share with her brother! :0) Thank you so much Yuki for including her in the testing. This is a glycerin soap and one that actually lathers pretty well. Not to mention it is absolutely darling! It is a little round soap with an 'X and O' embedded inside. Smells great, lathers great and washes dirt and grime off my daughter and right down the drain!

Here is a little about Yuki and enchanted Potions including a SPECIAL OFFER!

1. How long have you been in business?
Enchanted Potions officially opened for business in 2000, but has been crafting luxurious bath & body products since 1997. I learned about Enchanted Potions and joined their distributor program in 2007.

2. What made you decide on the products you sell?
I wanted to start offering bath & body products and started researching the different companies out there. I liked the fact that Enchanted Potions offered so many different products and fragrances. Also the reps are all so passionate about the products and use them themselves. To me it says a lot if reps not only sell their products but are customers themselves. It was only $10 to join, and with that $10, you can choose any product to try out for yourself or as samples for customers.

3. Do you offer any specials or discounts?
Receive a FREE gift with every order. When you shop at the Cuddly Crew, you will receive a FREE 2oz. bottle of our Cosmic Body Lotion. Also, currently I am having a Summertime Savings Sale – save 15% off everything. There’s more info on my homepage –

4. Enchanted Potions offers a variety of bath and body products available in nearly 100 fragrances. Each item is 100% handcrafted using only the finest ingredients and includes a thorough inspection before leaving the facility. Our products are “custom” “made to order” fresh when the order is placed. Customers won’t get sent something that has been sitting on a shelf somewhere collecting dust. We are proud to send freshly made bath and body products bursting with fragrance. Often when you receive your order, you can smell the fragrance through the box.

Once again I had the honor of testing some amazing products. Grab some bath-n-body goodies for Christmas, Holiday and Birthday gifts. There is something there for everyone!

Thank you Yuki!

Crystal Martin is a work at home mommy of 3, specializing in the advertising and marketing needs of fellow work @ home parents. She is the owner of The Cinnamon Hollow, &, and also finds time to do product reviews at Thank you Crystal for all your hard work!

Traffic Exchanges

If you work at home or have your own business, getting your website or blog seen is very important. Traffic Exchanges are one way to market your business for free or on a low budget. With traffic exchanges, by viewing other members sites, you earn credits which put your website in front of other viewers. This helps get your site constantly in front of potential customers and helps build name/brand awareness. I want to share with you some of the traffic exchanges I use.

These first couple of traffic exchanges are geared more for moms, women, and work at home moms (and dads).

Shopping With Moms - Text, Banner, and Traffic Exchange Network. Promote your business. A fun way to go shopping online.

Really Smart Deals - Manual Traffic, Banner and Text Exchange. A niche site for shoppers and sellers, only allows auction stores, auction sites, shopping websites, affiliate programs related to shopping.

The Cinnamon Hollow - WAHM Traffic Exchange. A Free resource designed to bring your business traffic. There's surfing contests, website exposure, and a wonderful network of sites.

Sweet Shoppe Surf - Manual traffic with a sweet twist.

These other traffic exchanges have a general audience.

Ts25 traffic syndicate 25 - Show your website to thousands of potential customers and increase brand exposure and search engine ranking.
Teddies Traffic - Free manual traffic exchange. Your friend in the business.

TrafficSwarm - Targeted prospects will swarm your site 24/7! Just 5 minutes to set-up, it's automated, "viral" and proven - and best of all it's FREE! - Free web traffic and effective advertising.

Freebie - Yummy Soap Recipes

Soap making can be a fun activity for the whole family. Here are some wonderful soap recipes for you to try out. And if you need supplies, be sure to check out the Bath & Body section at the Cuddly Crew. Enjoy!

Lemon cheesecake soap loaf

250g transparent M&P
500g Opaque M&P
Lemon Scent
Yellow colouring
Oatmeal or Porridge Oats
1 x Medium sized Loaf mold (1 kilo capacity)

1. Melt white soap base and add a few drops of yellow coloring or powder until you get the right lemon color.
2. Add your fragrance
3. Pour into your mold and spray with alcohol to remove all bubbles
4. Allow to set
5. Melt your transparent soap base and add as much Oatmeal as the base will allow to still be ever so slightly runny
6. Spray your loaf again with alcohol before pouring/spreading the oatmeal mixture into your mold
7. Flatten off the top and allow to cool
8. Once it's turned out your loaf will look like a lemon cheesecake and smell divine. The oatmeal will be a great exfoliator too.

If you wanted to get fancy, you could add a third layer of white between the yellow and the oatmeal base, or even whip up your yellow base so it was fluffy.

Tea Tree and Linseed Soap Loaf

1 Kilo of Transparent Melt & Pour soap base
Tea Tree Essential Oil
Green Coloring
50g of Linseeds
1 x Medium sized Loaf mold (1 kilo capacity)
1 x Ready made bar of Dark Green M&P soap (use the basic recipe for melt and pour)

1. Divide your soap base into 3 equal parts
2. Melt one part with no added color or scent
3. Stir in your linseeds and pour into the mold
4. Spray with alcohol to remove bubbles
5. Allow to set
6. Melt your second part and add green coloring and your tea tree oil
7. Spray your mold with alcohol and pour in the green base
8. Allow to set
9. Grate up your bar of green soap
10. Melt your third part of base
11. Mix in the green grated shreds
12. Spray your mold with alcohol
13. Pour in to the mold

This mixture makes a really eye catching loaf and the linseeds are great for exfoliating while adding an interesting feature.

Banana Slice Soaps (Makes 4 bars)

150g Transparent Melt and Pour base
350g Opaque Melt and Pour base
Yellow coloring
Banana Scent
Dried Banana Chips
4 x soap bar molds (Square or rectangular)

1. Place your banana chips over the base of each mold. You should be able to fit in 3 or four of these. Make sure they are flat on the bottom and do not overlap or stick out.
2. Melt your clear base
3. Carefully pour in ever such a tiny amount of the base so as to just cover the chips.
4. Spray with alcohol to remove bubbles
5. Allow to set
6. Melt your opaque base and add your scent and yellow coloring until it is a nice banana color
7. Spray your molds with alcohol
8. Pour in and allow to set

When you turn these out the chips should be visible in a thin layer of clear on top of a lovely banana looking base. Great fun for kids and really popular at fairs. These are my biggest seller. You may need to adjust the amount of M&P you use depending on your mold size, but practice makes perfect.

If you are looking for some soap making supplies, be sure to visit our Bath & Body section or go directly to Enchanted Potions
