Custom Orders

Yes, We Do Custom Orders!

I am often asked at craft shows whether I can make custom items.  The answer is, yes!  Custom body products are a unique and thoughtful alternative to more traditional options for your special events.  Some ideas:

  • Wedding favors
  • Shower gifts
  • Birthday party favors
  • Teacher gifts
  • Employee appreciation
  • Holiday gifts
  • Prizes

I will happily work with you to create the perfect gift for your event.  Pricing varies by item, complexity, and volume needed.  I am able to create custom colors or scents, however some scents may not behave well in handmade soap.  Please ask and we can help you with ideas and options to meet your needs.  Some things to remember in your planning:

  • Soap orders should be placed at least 6 weeks in advance. This allows us time to make and package the soap, including the 4 weeks needed for soap to cure fully.  If a custom scent must be ordered, we may need 8 weeks for soap
  • Most other custom items require a minimum of 4 weeks advance order. We appreciate as much lead time as possible, but this is the minimum we ask.

Some unique ideas for your event:

  • Organza gift bags – include 1 bar of soap of your choice, and one lip balm of your choice
  • Gift baskets – all sizes – priced by the items you want to include
  • Sugar scrubs – scrubs include gentle soap, so are a luxurious way to wash and exfoliate at the same time
  • Bath salts – include Epsom salts, Himalayan salt, and Dead Sea salts for a muscle and body loving, relaxing experience
  • Bath bombs – a fizzy and skin loving experience
  • Scented lotions with all natural ingredients
  • Handmade, all natural ingredient soaps
  • Children’s soaps – in animal or vehicle shapes, or with a Harry Potter theme

Now is the time to plan your custom orders for the holidays!  We believe you will be delighted with the options and presentation for your custom gifts.  Please contact Barnyard Creations now to place your order!

Gifts, Holidays

Gifts for Your Valentine!

Looking for a thoughtful and indulgent gift for Your Valentine that is an alternative to the usual chocolate or roses?  Consider a gift basket filled with skin pampering items!  For the women in your life bath bombs, skin balms or lotions, natural lip balms, or soap loaded with natural glycerin and no chemicals (like what you find in commercial products) make wonderful gifts.  For Valentine’s Day, we also have created a variety of new bath items, including a bag of smaller, heart-shaped bath bombs with shea butter, jojoba and avocado oils, all of which have wonderful skin softening properties.  And, the apple sage scent is heavenly.  Other new bath bomb items:

  • Natural bath bombs, scented with Rosemary & Lavender essential oils
  • Glitter bath bombs, colored with micas and scented with Turquoise fragrance oil – with biodegradable eco-glitter
  • Bubbling bath truffles, with salted caramel, turquoise, rose quartz, or cocoa butter cashmere scents
  • Smaller, heart shape, bath bombs, bag of 4
  • “Kiddie” size bath bombs with heart shapes in a bag of 8 (Great for your little Valentines!)
  • Cupcake bath bombs – birthday cake, lemon or snickerdoodle scents
  • Rose shaped bath bombs, rose quartz scent

For the man your life, we also have some thoughtful gift ideas.  Men love our lip balms, and we offer many handmade soaps with scents pleasing to men.  Also, body balms are wonderfully soothing to skin after shaving, or to sooth skin dried by frequent hand washing.  Scrubby soaps are great for gardeners, mechanics, hunters, or anyone who gets grimy hands.

  • Rustic Desert soap – shredded loofah and strawberry seeds help to clean the hands.  The pleasant bamboo scent leaves hands smelling fresh and clean
  • Green gardeners soap has shredded loofah and walnut seeds to provide a very scrubby soap to clean especially grimy hands.  The scent is a pleasant sweetgrass scent
  • Gardeners cold process soap is a layered soap with lavender buds, calendula petals, coffee grounds, and a lavender scent leaves hands wonderfully soft and removes odors
  • Kitchen soap – This is a goats milk soap with coffee grounds to provide exfoliation and remove odors from the skin.  Works great in the kitchen but also works anywhere you need to remove grime and smells from your hands!  Include coconut cream or espresso scents.

Lastly, women and men love our sugar scrubs!  Sugar provides mild exfoliation, and quality oils provide emollient properties, leaving skin soft and smooth.  All scrubs have gentle soap in them, so you can clean and exfoliate at the same time.  You may even notice improvement in eczema and other drying conditions with repeated use.  The scrubs come in multiple sizes, and also in decorative bail jars, which make beautiful gifts.
