LuSa Organics is Growing.

I don't talk about my business very much here, aside from a few ads scattered around the page. But there is a buzzing in the business today that is preoccupying my brain this morning.

I just got out of the shower. I was in there way too long to call myself an environmentalist today. But the soap. I love our soap. (Sure, I am biased, but I am a bit of a snob about the products that we use and the food that we eat. If I didn't make this soap I would buy it every time. It's that good.)

There was a new bar in there that I hadn't used for a while (Calendula Baby Soap) and it was so amazing that I just kept washing up. This got me to thinking about all of the other people who are enjoying our soap this very moment (or our sugar scrubs or our belly balm or countless other products) and out of curiosity I checked our order history for the week.

Is it the power of my Manifestation post or was this just an exceptional week?

Something is stirring in LuSa land. In the past few days we've sent
product to Arizona, North Dakota, Montana, Wisconsin, Quebec, Alberta,
Minnesota, New York, Texas, Illinois, New Jersey, California, Indiana,
Vermont and Pennsylvania. Oh. And Columbia. And Great Britian. (And a
few weeks back Costa Rica and New Zealand.)

In previous months more than 90% of our orders were local or regional, sent to customers the upper Midwest. But now… now our organic soap is inspiring decadently long showers and our Booty Balm and Baby Wipe Juice are soothing wee bums from coast-to-coast and around the globe. That feels wonderful. I can't wait to see what comes in next.

In celebration I am offering a two-day coupon code for you to enjoy. Who knows – maybe your first-time order will put us on the map in your part of the world.

    I adore your products. Your lip balm is my new addiction. My 12-month-old son adores it, too (he has learned the phrase, “Do you want chapstick/lip balm?” and will tip his head up and back and part his lips slightly).

    I will keep my eyes open for more discounts in the future – right now, I don’t have $50 extra to spend… even though I almost certainly could quickly find $50 worth of products to stock up on, haha!

    Well, the SouleMama sponsor blog post this week probably helped, eh? 🙂

    Good for you – I love seeing small environmentally conscious family businesses succeed.

    Erynne,
    So sweet! Sage at one would say boooooooooty balm. I want booooooooooty balm! when he had a sore, well, booty. Thanks for the sweetness. (I invite you to team up with a friend of three for the free shipping offer! If not, there will be more.)

    I have to chime in with my love of LuSa products. I used belly balm through both my pregnancies and have been known to claim that’s why I have no stretch marks. We’ve also exclusively used booty balm for both littles. My two year old, like Sage, loved saying boooty balm. Even now, after she potty learned months ago, will request it on. On a recent trip to Happy Bambino we picked up some Cranky Pants to try. Now I have a little one bringing me the bottle saying, I’m cranky. Just so she can use it. I was so excited to see you on SoulaMama and Sew Liberated within days of each other. How wonderful for you!

    I just put in an order for the baby wipe juice and lotion bar! I’ve been cloth diapering since day one, but using organic no chlorine baby wipes. But I’ve decided to give the throw a way wipes the boot. When I found your product I thought, that’s perfect! So I made up some cloth wipes and am anticipating the arrival of the wipe juice. And my body id looking forward to the lotion as Arizona is so dry!

    I just did some scrubbing this morning with the brown sugar scrub. I like to think that using it invigorates and wakes up the baby-house fat and extra skin that I no longer need. What a lovely experience to smother those areas with love and lavender-smelling goodness, instead of disgust. It’s working, too! (with the help of Spring chores busy-ness, nursing, and extra exercise)

    I am the Montana order! (or maybe there is more than one?!) I am stocking up for xmas already, and bought a soap for me, one for the kids and can’t wait to try the booty balm and baby wipe juice! Just got done with store bought body wash which is so uninspiring! I take 2 minute showers now, is it the body wash, or babies… I don’t know! thank you for your generosity!

    I am betting it is your manifestation! Positive thinking rocks!
