Some good things are happening and we want to celebrate with you

We are excited about some good things we have on tap.   Not only will we be celebrating Halloween weekend in New Orleans, we’re gearing up for Noir Naturals’ first holiday season.   We plan to share a lot with you and your friends.

What do we have in mind? Well, new products, chats, and specials just for you.   What kind of specials?   Well, we’re not telling.   Not yet.   Let’s just say that we’ll be giving Santa a run for his money and we’ll have fun doing it.

Make sure to follow us on Twitter and like us on Facebook so you can know when the fun will start.   Maybe it’ll start early.   You know how the saying goes:  you can’t win if you don’t play.

Noir Naturals has love for the dogs

At Noir Naturals we celebrate and appreciate our four-legged family members.  Back in the day – and today – we watch Lassie, Old Yeller, and even Benji’s adventures while laughing and crying along with their human companions.  We think they deserve the best, and that includes the products we use on their skin and coats.

Our Asta Doggie Soap is handmade with the love and natural goodness we use in all of our products.  A blend of essential oils perfectly enhances the rich, moisturizing goat’s milk base and will give the benefits of a moisturizing shampoo that lasts for days. Sheryl in Charleston, SC says Asta made her white dogs glow as if she used a whitening shampoo formula and her dogs had no post-bath itching.

We created a special the essential blend just for the pups that help condition their skin and make their coats glossy while keeping pests away.  Cedar is a pest control solution from way back.  Cedar helps keep grandma’s quilt safe in the Hope Chest; Cedarwood essential oil can help keep your dog safe from mosquitoes and fleas.  Niaouli essential oil is related to Tea Tree oil and is a proven disinfectant and insecticide. Sweet Orange essential oil is an antiseptic that brings a sunny fragrance to the furry ones as it repels fleas and promotes relaxation.   These oils all also have anti-fungal properties to help soothe and heal skin conditions.

Asta Doggie Soap is available in small and large sized bars and as a set of three.  We donate the proceeds to the Louisiana SPCA because we want to assist the LA-SPCA improve the safety and quality of life for our furry, feathered, and scaly companions.

Try this natural alternative to pest control instead of pesticide-filled flea shampoos.  Your dog, your skin, and the environment will thank you.

Fall is in full swing and we’re heading out on the road

October marks the true beginning of fall and it is going to be a busy month!  We have scheduled many fair and festival appearances, so try to come see us.

We kicked off the month at the St. Luke’s Annual Fall Arts & Crafts Festival on Saturday, October 1 and had a great time meeting those who came out. It was just a taste of what’s to come!

On October 8 and 9th, we’ll be in Gonzales, LA at the Awesome Arts on the Bayou Arts and Cultural Festival.  Gonzales is between Baton Rouge and New Orleans and is known as the gumbo capital of the world.  Join us in Jambalaya Park for two days of food, fun, and beautiful handmade goods.

Join us in Canton, MS for the Canton Flea Market Arts & Crafts Festival on Thursday October 13. This festival happens only twice a year and is always something special.

We’ll be in Vacherie, LA on October 15 ad 16 at the beautiful Oak Alley Plantation for the Fall Arts and Crafts Festival. The annual event is in its 6th year. While there is admission for the fair, it is more than worth the cost.  Handmade arts and crafts, food, and fun for the whole family with a gorgeous, historic backdrop.

We’ll close out the month by celebrating Christmas in New Orleans on Saturday, October 29.   Join us at the Pontchartrain Convention Center to kick off the holiday shopping season in style!

We’ll have some of your old favorites like Moses and Age of Innocence on hand, our new Rose-scented Flame of Hope Pink Candle, and some new holiday-scented goodness like our Sweet Pumpkin Spice Candle.   The people who come out to see us will also get a sneak peek at new products.

We hope to see you soon!
