Update: iVi Scents is no longer in business, the owner has moved on to other ventures.
I love trying new products or services and supporting small businesses and entrepreneurs. I often find myself perusing Etsy, social networks and numerous blogs in an effort to seek out online shops and boutiques to add to my personal “must shop” list. I am really excited to share iVi Scents with you darlings!
iVi Scents was started by Aarin in August 2009. At the time she was a school teacher and due to the economic crisis and state budget cuts was laid off, along with thousands of other new teachers. I can imagine the fear she must have felt as I was also laid off in 2009. Aarin did not let panic set in or allow the layoff to defeat her. Instead she brainstormed and used the last $500 in her bank account to start iVi Scents, which sells nontoxic bath and body products.
I had knowledge of iVi Scents from a bit of buzz flowing on Youtube and that quickly turned to a lot of buzz all over the social media outlets. iVi Scents was always on my radar but it wasn’t until I heard Aarin’s story that it strongly peeked my interest, jumping ahead of the pack of other shops I wanted to try out. I was lucky enough to get my hands on iVi Scents’ Birthday Cake Soap from the Kandee Johnson Collection, which is limited edition.
Kandee’s Birthday Cake Soap is 4.5oz and comes in cute pink packaging, adorning a photo of Kandee Johnson, who’s birthday inspired the collection.[quoteicon author=”iVi Scents”]This veggie based bar soap is fully loaded with addictive fragrances and completely void of toxic scum. Soft and gentle, it’s ideal for all skin types, even sensitive or dry. Experience the softest skin you’ve ever felt after just one use.[/quoteicon]
