The new look of The Daily Scrub!!!

I'm so excited that we have a new look for our shows! Dynamo has been working so hard on designing a new display for us, and it is absolutely beautiful!!



The natural butcher block tops allow the beautiful colors to shine. The look is industrial in nature, with clean lines allowing the soap to be the centerpiece of the display.


With multiple tables it allows customers to spread out and shop both sides of the display. When they are ready to checkout they can come to the center table to do so.

I am so blessed to have such a talented husband with a vision and dedication to our business. I LOVE our new look, don't you?!?!

Handmade Holiday Tomorrow

We are so excited to be participating in the Richmond Craft Mafia's Handmade Holiday event tomorrow, Saturday, December 5, at Hardywood Park Craft Brewery in Richmond. Come see us from 10 - 5!

Many thanks to RVA News for this great piece on The Daily Scrub!


Here's the intro written by Susan Howson...

"Rachel Chieppa found an unexpected outlet for her artistic leanings when her favorite soapmaker showed her the ropes. Now, she’s hooked on the endless possibilities of swirling colors and scents, making something truly unique every single time.
She is so very bubbly and cheerful about soap, that it made me remember how I used to insist on handmade soaps in fun fragrances. It truly does turn each morning shower into something that feels very luxurious and ends up making your skin feel perfectly nice.
Well, dang it, now I’m going to quit and become a soapmaker myself. Here’s what I learned after speaking with Rachel."

A Fall Cabin Retreat

We headed out to James River State Park for a little retreat over Halloween weekend!

We love the little cabins at the Park and had such a great time last year that we decided to go back again. The first thing we decided to do on Friday was take a hike!

Charlie was so excited to venture into the woods. He loves to hike on the trails. We hiked to the Tye River Overlook where the Tye and James Rivers meet.

We hiked over 7 miles that first day and then on the next day we took a little road trip up past Crabtree Falls to hike Spy Rock.

There was a field full of pumpkins on our way...

We parked and then started our journey!
