We cannot wait to see these tour ugides again!

We cannot wait to see these tour guides again!

We’re like kids on Christmas break – excited, giddy, and downright bouncy.  Oak Alley Plantation does it to us every time.  We always say this, but this arts and crafts festival will be the best.

On Saturday October 26 and Sunday the 27th, we’ll be back in Vacherie.  This will be our first trip to Oak Alley since we opened the retail store and we’ll have new products with us.  Three new coconut milk vegan soaps, a selection of fall and holiday soy wax cubes, and our new Hair and Scalp Oil will all be on hand.  We’ll also have our reformulated Dead Sea Mud Mask and 100% Pure Argan Oil with us.

Will you join us on Saturday or Sunday?

New store hours and more

Happy Fall!  We just plain love this time of year.  The temperature starts to change, nights get a little longer, and we hit the road.  We love the fall show season and have a few stops planned.  Before we hit the road, we made some changes.

First, we’ve changed our store hours.  Not by much, but we think you’ll like it. Come see us from 10 am until 6 pm Tuesday through Friday and 9-3 on Saturday.  We’re closed on Sundays and Mondays.

We’re adding new products to the inventory.  New coconut milk vegan soaps are coming and new beeswax cubes are in the works.  Everyl-Ann made her first batch this past weekend while running the shop. In addition, keep your eyes open for the 2013 line of fall and holiday scented soaps and wax cubes.

Finally, we’ve tweaked our show schedule a bit.  Our first stop is in Hammond this weekend.  On Friday, September 27, join us at the 2013 Brews Arts Festival.  This one is strictly for the 21 and over crowd.  From 5-9 pm enjoy music, arts and crafts from local and regional artists, live demonstrations, food by Kevin Cote, fresh homemade sangria, and an extensive selection of beer.  Tickets are $20 per person in advance or $25  at the door.  Get your advance tickets from the Hammond Arts Center during regular gallery hours, by phone at 985-542-7113, or online.  Hope to see you on Friday behind the Arts Center in the Morrison Alley parking lot.

Yes, Fall is Noir Naturals’ prime time!  Learn more about us at, Facebook, Twitter, G+, or Pinterest.

Semi-Wordless Wednesday: Backyard Goodies

We love gardening on our time off.  This is just a sample of the goodies in our backyard.


The Magnolia is the classic Southern flower to us. There is something romantic about the blooms.


We love the pop of color from Loquats. Subtle and stunning at the same time. And they make a lovely snack.


Bonus wild blackberries! We found these while clearing brush and pulling weeds.

It’s hard to leave them alone.

This was the first pop of wild berry color we saw. Of course we had to take a few shots.

We also have azaleas and fig trees.  We’re waiting for the figs to bear and have vision of fig preserves on the brain.  How does your garden grow?

March Madness at Noir Naturals

When you hear March Madness, college basketball comes to mind, but that’s not what we’re talking

We loved our last visit to Oak Alley Plantation and look forward to seeing these tour guides again.

about.  We have so much happening this March that it might just make us a little mad.

We are so excited about our travel schedule this month!  Not only are we making return trips to two of our favorite places, we’re adding another stop to kick off the month.  Join us this weekend in Pass Christian, MS at the Flea Market at Menge.  This market is the largest outdoor market on the Gulf Coast and was featured on Junkin’ with Val and Dave.  Rain or shine, we’ll be there from 8 am until 5 pm on Saturday and Sunday – we cannot wait!

If this weekend is bad for you, come see us at Oak Alley Plantation in Vacherie, LA on March 16th and 17th.  We love going back to Oak Alley and love the history.  And those Oaks! There’s something for everyone at Oak Alley, including ghosts according to some.

Speaking of return trips, we’re going back to Houma, LA on March 23.  Look for us at the Southdown Marketplace Arts and Crafts Festival.  This one day show features music, food, and a wide assortment of vendors ready to show you what they’ve got.  The plantation and museum will be open, too. Admission is just $5 with children under 12 free.  Rain or shine, we’ll be there from 8 am until 4 pm.

What else does March have in store?  Soap news!  Stay tuned for more information on a new feature we know you’ll love.  Soap news not enough?  Hair care products are also on the way.  We heard your

2013 in Full Swing

Hard to believe a year has come and gone, eh?

We’re back to the daily grind here at Noir Naturals and we started the year by setting goals. Like a lot of people, we make resolutions, goals, or whatever you call them at the start of the year after reflecting on the past year.

New_Year_s_Resolutions_3In 2013, we plan to
  • Keep customer service a priority.
  • See more of you in person this year (that’s right, we’ll still hit the road often)
  • Increase product testing opportunities.  We love hearing from you at all levels of product development and would love to hear your input from the beginning.
  • Introduce new product lines  and new scents. Stay tuned for more info.
  • Offer more opportunities for you to save.  Keep your eyes open for coupons and programs!
Those are some of our goals.  What are some of yours?
