Round and round
I've been on a quest to get rid of as much plastic from my line as possible. At this point I don't see the little pink pots leaving the scene since the are much loved. However, there are several possibilities for replacing the natural honey pot tubs.
One is glass jars, which are currently on their way and the other is simple round tins. I'm not sure if the tins are quite right with the branding, thus I am not going to offer them in the shop as of yet. However, I would like to offer them to all the readers of this blog. There is a contingent of loyal patrons that is only considered with the end product and not the packaging, thus the tins are perfect for you.
These round, steel tins have the honey bee wax seal on the top of the smaller sizes and a letterpress label on the top of the large size. Here is a list of the sizes I have and what they might hold. I'm still running experiments of the quantity of solid perfume that will fit into each one, but this will give you an idea...
2 oz round tin, letterpress label: holds about 28 grams of solid perfume, more or less.
1 oz round tin: holds about 14 grams of solid perfume, more or less.
1/2 oz round tin: holds about 7 grams of solid perfume, more or less.
1/4 oz round tin: holds about 3.5 grams of solid perfume, more or less.
The tins arrive in a velour or velveteen pouch with the little informational cards.
The prices will be based on the 5 gram honey pot size, for example 5 grams of Aumbre is $30, thus 10 grams of Aumbre will be $60. If you desire pricing on a specific amount, send me a note and I will give you the price. I just wanted to post this here now since I am already making these for several customers.
I have a new sampler set of the little pink pots in the tin with the letterpress label, here are a few photos, this option is now available in the E-shop.
