Merry Christmas, Overstock Sale!

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas!

I know I did. I did last minute shopping up until Christmas eve! Got to see and spend time with family. Cooked and ate until I could not stand to see food any longer! Wrapped until 2am on Christmas eve until I nearly passed out. I did it all! But it was all worth it.

I wanted to post an update. I have received a few packages back unfortunately. Undeliverable, unable to forward is what is labeled on the boxes. I will be contacting those this week.

Next week I will be reopening, even though I didn't officially close the shop, I became overwhelmed with Christmas and forgot to really. This week I will also be answering a few convos I received. 

The German and Traditional Christmas will be restocked and available until January 15th. After this they will no longer be available. I have to make room for my new collections coming.

I will also be running an overstock sale beginning January 2nd from my Fall and Halloween collections. Some items will include Madame Violca's Midnight Carnival, State Fair Lip Balm, Wild Apple Tree, Thanksgiving 1891, Black Cat and a few more. These will be at a discounted price. I do not have too many available. I will be listing only what I have. I won't be able to do custom listings for the items unfortunately. The sale will begin at 9am Pacific Standard time until inventory has been depleted.

Items that will be staying around year long and no longer will be an LE (Limited Edition)

Alice's Nightmare in Wonderland
Dr. Jekyll
Mr. Hyde

The following items are available until January 15th:

Pumpkin Lavender Perfume
Cookies for Santa
Sankt Nikolaus
Mommy Kissing Santa
Naughty Mrs. Claus

Thank you and have a very Happy New Year!

Last Day to Order

Just a friendly reminder that today is the last day to order. The shop will be closing by the end of the business day today.

All orders received up until last Saturday December 17th, are shipping out by today. Anything received today I will ship out as quickly as I can but cannot guarantee it will arrive in time for Christmas, especially international orders, as shipping takes up to 3 weeks to deliver.

German and Traditional Christmas items will be available for one more week after the shop reopens on January 2nd for those that missed out. I received quite a bit of requests from people wanting me to keep them around. I can only keep them around for one week as I have 3 new collections coming out in January.

Dark Woods
Loved to Death Valentine Collection
Twisted Fairytales Collection

Also in January I will be having an overstock sale on some items from my Halloween and Fall  collections. I have a few items I'd like to clear out so I can make room for the new collections. They will be discounted. :-)

I hope everyone has a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Shipping Update for Christmas & Inventory Update

We are nearly caught up on all orders.  Everything will be out in time for Christmas. We are shipping everything out by December 19th the latest.

Any orders received by Friday and Monday will also be shipped out but I cannot guarantee they will make it in time for the holiday! Any international orders received have been shipped, but again, no guarantee they will arrive in time for the holiday as shipping can take up to 3 weeks once they leave our hands.

The etsy shop will be closing on Monday. 

I've been noticing USPS is not scanning all packages we drop off. Some are not showing any status until they have been delivered. Please be patient. I know it's hard with Christmas coming, I worry too! I've been watching each and every package that leaves here. It's quite nerve wracking to be honest as I want you to get them just as much you want them. I've been staying up every night until 1am getting orders completed. My reward is your happiness.

Please remember you can convo me anytime. As of late I've been answering convos late at night just before I crash, lol. But I am here for you to answer any questions you may have.

Inventory update, I am updating my etsy shop to reflect exactly what I have left. So you will see possibly 1 left of this or 3 left of that. That means that is all I have left. I cannot make anymore as I do not have the time. I do not want to hold any orders up and at this time I cannot do anymore custom listings. I will be restocking after the New Year and I will be restocking some of the Christmas items for 1 week only as well for those that missed out. 

After the New Year I have handmade soaps coming, finally! They have been curing and I've not had much time to list much of anything new, not even the remainder of the Christmas line unfortunately.  As a matter of fact, today I will be listing a few items that I was not able to list such as Aunt Hattie Mae's Sweet Potato Pie in Perfume and Lotion as well as Mommy Kissing Santa.

I hope everyone has a fabulous weekend!!!

Monday, December 12, 2011


As we are nearing the completion of orders received up until this past Friday I have been able to go through inventory last night and I am relisting what I have available on etsy this morning. I've been getting quite a few convos about relisting items. I can only relist what I have in stock at this point, which is very low.

What I do not have and will not be relisting until after New Years:

Samples in all jars, this includes whipped soaps, lotions and bubbling scrubs. I do have plenty of petite samples in almost all the scents though, except Mad Hatter Tea Cakes. Twilight Night is very low as well as Alice's Nightmare in Wonderland.

The German Christmas line is getting low as well.

I have plenty of lip balms in stock still. 

And an update on one of the lost packages, some how, this morning as I was rushing out to get my kids to school in the pouring rain was a box, wet of course. One of the boxes that I had been waiting on full of the bags I use to place the perfumes in. I have no clue how it got there, a neighbor perhaps? Either way, it's here and even though the box is wet, the contents are not. There is still another out there gone. HHmmph.

Again, thank you for your patience during this very busy time!

Quick Update

Just a quick update as to what we are doing.

We are working overtime on getting all orders out. Some orders were held back, I had a MAJOR problem with FedEx losing a package of our muslim bags that we had ordered for the perfumes. They lost it, I had to place another order, they lost the 2nd one. Ordered AGAIN. I cannot tell you the frustration I am going through at this point. finally arrived. The other 2 packages, well, they are being traced, hopefuly they will turn up. The good thing is that the company is local and it comes next day, but with all this frustration, it took all week to finally get them. I was seriously starting to think of taking the 2 hour drive to just pick them up myself, forget FedEx!

I'm trying to answer convos as quickly as I can, if I do not respond right away, just know I am processing and packing orders. But I typically respond within 24 hours, most time same day. If you feel I missed you, convo me again, bug me, bug me, bug me, I do not mind at all! lol When you say "I hate to bother I know it's a busy time of year" It's NOT bothering me at all. I am here to help in any way I can. Even if that means locating a package, letting you know the status of your order, adding an item on, whatever it may be. Customer service is my number one priority.

I also want to let everyone know that all orders will be going out in time for holiday gift giving. We should be 100% caught up by Tuesday. This is an amazing feat for this time of year. I cannot express how thankful I am for your patience during this busy time of year. And not to mention the extra helping hands I have received here with my BFF. She has made a world of a difference.

I also wanted to share one more bit of good news, I have received many inquiries about Alice's Nightmare in Wonderland, asking to keep it around. I have been debating on this. Last year we took it down after Halloween. It was intended to be an LE, limited edition item since its main note is pumpkin. But I do have 2 other Alice themed fragrances. I decided to carry on with the theme. Alice's Nightmare in Wonderland will be available year long. But I won't be restocking anymore until after New Years. So stock up while you can.

I hope everyone has a fabulous weekend!!

Inventory, Shipping Deadline & Dark Woods Debut Change

Please keep in mind the December holiday schedule!!


Closed beginning December 19th, 2011 in observance of Christmas and New Years. All orders received by Monday December 12th, 2011 will be processed and shipped out prior to closure. Any orders received after the 12th I will work as quickly as I can to get out but I cannot guarantee delivery for Christmas. No orders will be accepted after this date (the 19th) or during this closure time. We will reopen Monday January 2nd, 2011.

This means the shop will begin to close during this time and no orders will be able to be placed through the etsy shop.


Many items are running low on inventory, such as Twilight Night, Mad Hatter Tea Cakes, Alices Nightmare in Wonderland. I will not be restocking until I reopen in January. 

January is also when I will be opening the website So you will have a choice of ordering from either etsy or the website after the New Year.

I am also running very low on samples, such as whipped soaps and bubbling scrubs. What I have up is all I have left at the moment. So I will be unable to list any custom listings for any other sample sizes unfortunately. Again, I will not be relisting until I reopen in January.

In January I will be having an overstock sale. I have a few items left from my Halloween and Fall collections.

Dark Woods Collection:

I've decided to hold off on the Dark Woods collection until I reopen on January 2nd. I figure I have too much going on right now anyways and I didn't want to get too behind on orders. As it is we have finally begun to get caught up. 

Also in mid January will be the debut of 2 other new collections, a valentine collection, Loved to Death and a fairytale collection. These I've been working on for quite a few months and you have actually gotten to see a couple from the fairytale collection already, Rapunzel and Little Red Riding Hood. These 2 scents will also be available in my other products. So January will be an exciting month for new scents!

As far as the German and Traditional Christmas items, these will be available until December 16th.

Thank you!

Priority Mail

I just wanted to let you know that all orders with sufficient postage paid (with the exception of orders that are just lip balms and samples that usually ship via First Class) are going via priority mail. As usual, I refund shipping over charges of $1.00 or more.

The reason for this is that I want to ensure that everyone gets their orders before the holidays. First class and parcel post can take some time and I want to avoid that. 

Also, if you are just ordering samples or lip balms for stocking stuffers and want your order shipped via priority mail, please convo me, I can set up a custom listing for this.

This does not apply to international customers unfortunately.

Sunday, December 4, 2011


It looks like we have finally caught up on orders!! WHEW!!!!!!! I can't thank everyone enough for their patience, I really cannot.

Finally, finally finally, I am so thrilled! Even the most recent orders are on their way out beginning tomorrow. The only thing I have left is to update paypal tonight with all the tracking #'s for everyone and any orders that require refunds on shipping. I also get to finally start adding the Traditional Christmas line too! FINALLY! 

Thank you again, I really can't thank you all enough for being so kind and patient. You are all so wonderful! I hope you have had a wonderful weekend!


Wednesday, November 30, 2011

Almost there!

Orders are just about caught up. I want to thank everyone for their patience during this very busy time.

Please check your paypal accounts for tracking #'s via

Thank you again and have a fabulous night!!

I've been getting a lot of requests not to take down these scents, so I will be keeping them around indefinitely:

Little Red Riding Hood
Dr Jekyll
Mr Hyde

Headless Horseman is will coming down today and will not be coming back until next Fall.

Thank you!

Order Processing Update

This past week has been a very busy week for us at Debaucherous Bath! With the enlisted help of my family we have been busily getting your orders out to you. But TAT is still around 5 business days even up to 7 now. I am not happy with this, so I have enlisted additional help for the next few days to get things really moving. My BFF has volunteered to come over beginning today and help us get moving so that our TAT can get back to our standard 2-3 days. I am so excited! 

I want to thank everyone for being so patient with me during this crazy time for us here at Debaucherous Bath. It means the world to me. You are the best customers in the world! I absolutely adore each and every one of you! I simple adore the little messages you include with your orders, I get quite the laugh out of some of them. Or the convos, such inspiring convos I receive from the most loving and caring people. YOU ARE THE BEST!

Well, I am back to work! I hope everyone has had a fabulous weekend with their loved ones, eating lots of good food (and hopefully not gain too much weight from it, lol), spending lots of quality time with loved ones and saving loads with their Black Friday sales and not getting hurt by the overly fanatic for shopping.

Bathory & Traditional Christmas Debut

More Bathory items have been added and the remainder of the Bathory is going up today. 

Traditional Christmas items are going up today and over the weekend as well in the following scents:


A delicious treat that I always enjoyed as a child that my great aunt always made for everyone.



Grandma Lee is grandmother to 15 grand/stepgrandchildren and believe it or not over 20 great grand/stepgrandchildren. And she's hoping to be around to see her first great great grandchild. Personally I'm hoping that won't be for a long time as I'm not ready to be a grandmother myself anytime soon, seeing as I'm one of the elder grand/stepgrandchildren.  LOL

Grandma Lee has the best eggnog around! Sometimes it's a little too good though as Grandma Lee gets a little too generous with her rum at times. Grandma Lee's mother in law was a bootlegger/rum runner back in the day so I think she has access to some of the best rum around. She won't tell us what rum she uses and won't even let us see the bottle. Who knows what we're drinking!



Candy canes have always been a Christmas time staple in everyone's house. Used for everything from decorating the tree to baking and placing in the kids stockings.



We always leave cookies out for Santa and a little note from each of the kids. One year, when my oldest was around 6, my daughter decided Santa would like a lot of different cookies and a bunch of carrots for his reindeer for their long journey. My sister and brother in law happened to be in town for the holiday that year, before they had children of their own. The honor was bestowed upon my brother in law to eat the cookies and carrots. So he waited up until she finally went to sleep and ate them. The next morning my brother felt so sick form eating so many cookies. We were laughing at him so much. We told him he didn't really have to eat ALL of them. He ate about a dozen cookies! He thought he was doing something good for her.



All year long Santa is always so busy checking his naughty or nice list that he seemed to overlook the most important one of all, Mrs Claus. Mrs Claus has been VERY naughty.  All year she tries so hard to get Santa's attention, all the while Santa is busy checking his list, making toys and reading letters from little boys and girls. Walking around in her sexy lingerie, elves gasping! Santa not even noticing once. 

Mrs Claus had had enough. 

When Santa finally returned, he actually had a very big surprise for her! He didn't forget her after all. Mrs Claus was finally happy.



One of my favorite Christmas songs.

I saw Mommy kissing Santa Claus
Underneath the mistletoe last night
She didn't see me creep
Down the stairs to have a peep
She thought that I was tucked up in my bedroom fast asleep
Then I saw Mommy kissing Santa Claus
Underneath his beard so snowy white
Oh, what a laugh it would have been
If Daddy had only seen
Mommy kissing Santa Claus last night



Aunt Hattie Mae always made the best sweet potato pies. Bringing over up to 10 pies at a time for the family and not one slice being left over. She would tell stories how she would make cake without eggs and growing up on a farm so poor that she had to make do with what they had at that time, using fresh cream and butter. Aunt Hattie Mae isn't around anymore and she took her sweet potato pie recipe with her along with many others. Many of us to this day are trying to figure out many of her recipes. Maybe one day.


Additional Bathory items:

Corpse Bride
Alices Nightmare in Wonderland
Mad Hatter Tea Cakes
The Red Queens Rage
Naughty Mrs Claus

Happy Thanksgiving!

Fall Items Down & Thanksgiving Shipping

The Fall items are now down. I am getting the Bathory up, I know I keep saying that but I want to make sure I get orders out before I list new items. I like to keep TAT within the 3-5 business day range. Now that orders are caught up once again this allows me to work on getting new items up on the etsy shop finally.

Initially I was going to close shop this week for Thanksgiving, but I'm going to keep it open a couple days longer. I will be closed for Thanksgiving weekend though. So my new holiday schedule for Thanksgiving will be as followed:

Closed beginning Thursday November 24th, 2011 in observance of Thanksgiving. All orders placed until Monday November 21st will be shipped our prior to closure. All orders made after the 23rd will be processed upon return Monday November 28th, 2011. Orders made after the 21st I will work as quickly as I can to get out before Thanksgiving but I cannot guarantee will get out before Thanksgiving. If you are in need of something and need it quick, please convo me first.

The shop will remain open during the holiday, but I will be unavailable via convo or email and will not be processing any orders during this time as I will be spending this time with my family,

I hope everyone has a safe and wonderful Thanksgiving!

Thursday, November 17, 2011

Fall items coming down tomorrow!

Tomorrow, November 18th the following items are coming down off the etsy shop:

Pumpkin Regal
Spiked Coffee
Thanksgiving 1893
Wild Apple Tree 

Lip Balm:

State Fair
Apple Betty

If you are in need of more than what is listed in my shop, please convo me and I can set up a custom listing for you. Once they are gone they will not be back until Fall 2012. Please keep in mind that Raven is low in stock and I cannot make any more product in this scent. Thank you!

Bathory, Traditional Christmas & Dead Winter

Today the other 2 Bathory items are going up on etsy. I am waiting for the last of my labels for the last 6 Bathory items before I add those to etsy. They were suppose to be ready earlier in the week but alas they are not. 

Traditional Christmas will begin to go up this weekend. The remainder of those will go up next week as well. Same for Dead Winter.

Shipping Update

Shipping is caught up! There was a slight delay as I ran out of boxes, eek! I couldn't believe it as I thought I had more. It was one of those moments when I could swear I had more. Well, I was wrong! So I had to wait for the shipment to arrive yesterday in the evening. So today the last few made it out.

Thank you so much for your patience!

Monday, November 14, 2011


Please remember per my policies on etsy and my website, that I ship via usps' cheapest method for you. Which means I may ship first class, priority mail or even parcel post, which also means your package may arrive in just a couple days or even a week to 10 days later. If at any point you want a quicker method, please make a note of this when you check out. Additional charges may apply. Otherwise, I will choose the cheapest method for you.

As always, I refund any shipping over charge of $1.00 or more.

With the holidays just around the corner, please keep this in mind when placing your order along with the current turn around time. Current turn around time is 4-5 business days.

Thank you!

Trading on etsy

It's time for Christmas shopping and I have been getting quite a few convos asking if I'd be willing to trade with fellow etsy shops. I am always willing to trade as I am always looking for gifts for my friends and family and well, the occasional gift for myself of course, lol.

At times I'd like to ask, but am quite shy and not even sure how to, but am so thrilled when I get asked.

I am looking for items in the following categories, if you have an etsy shop, please, feel free to contact me:

Childrens clothing(mainly for a toddler girl)
Photographs (I love photographs as you can see in my favorites)
Candles (my dear cousin just loves candles and can never have enough of these!)
Knit cowls
Knit/Crochet Hats for kids, baby, toddler and adult
Felt play food (preferably the baked goods, like cookies and cakes)

My list will grow as my friends and relatives hand over their wishlists, lol.

Thanks for reading this!

Báthory Update & Product Availability

Ok, so I was able to get 2 of the Báthory items up yesterday. It was a long day. I will get the other 2 up shortly. 6 more are coming over the next few days. 

I was asked about Marshmallow Woods, at this time Marshmallow Woods is only available in Perfume and Báthory. If I get enough feedback/requests, I may bring this into the other products. Otherwise, it will only be in these 2. And this scent will only be available until the end of the year.

I'm trying to limit how many scents I offer at a time to keep TAT at a minimum. Many scents are seasonal and will not return until the following year. I highly recommend stocking up on your favorite scents. Right now I am low on Alices Nightmare in Wonderland, Raven and Wild Apple Tree. I will not be blending anymore of this until next year.

I am extremely low on Raven and a key note for Raven has been discontinued by my supplier. So I will be spending the following year trying to find a replacement directly with the manufacturers so that I will have it in time for next year. Raven is a personal favorite and when I found out this note was no longer available my heart was broken. This is a personal blend I have used for years. It went from one supplier to another and now no more. What is left in my etsy shop is all that I am offering and will not be relisting anymore unfortunately. I will also be removing from the perfume petite sample listings.

It really breaks my heart when this happens, but there is hope. And thankfully I have a year to work on it.

Friday, November 11, 2011


I have a surprise!!

.....Báthory is making its debut TODAY!!!!  I'll be adding 4 new Báthory items today to my etsy shop. of today I am caught up on orders, so beginning Monday I should be back to shipping within 2-3 business days again, but I will be keeping the TAT at 3-5 days since the holidays are nearing.

Wednesday, November 9, 2011

Friday is Veterans Day

Friday is Veterans Day, please note that the post office will be closed this day so I will be unable to ship orders, but I will still be processing them. Thank you!

Tuesday, November 8, 2011

Order & New Product Update

If you received your tracking info but no update as of yet with, please bear with me. My husband, my delivery man, lol, is still learning the tricks of the trade. He was unaware that our local post office works in such a manner that in order to get accurate tracking you must walk up to the counter, drop off all packages and request for them to be scanned. Instead he has been dropping them off in the bin, so they do not get scanned at the post office until they are in transit wherever they may be heading (usually not until they are near your post office).

Rest assured, if you have received a tracking number via paypal/email in the last few days, your order has been shipped and is on its way to you.

I thank you sincerely for your patience!

Now, for the product updates. My Traditional Christmas line is making it's debut next week. I cannot wait. Everything that Christmas is, in all, 7 new scents are coming. 

Bathory will also be making its debut next week. Bathory will be making its debut in 10 existing scents. And later in the month will be my Dead Winter collection.  Dead Winter will be making it's debut in 6 new scents.

Don't forget shortly after these new scents come out that the Fall scents will no longer be available.

Have a fabulous evening!

Monday, November 7, 2011


Current TAT (turn around time) is back to 3-4 business days. I'm going to keep it at this for now even if we get orders out same or next day just to be safe. Since the holidays are nearing it seems there is an increase in orders on both the website and etsy. So I'm keeping it safe in saying TAT is 3-4 days at this point.

I have enlisted the help of my family. I have come to realize that since the holidays are nearing I just cannot do it all by myself. They are doing a lovely job if I do say so myself. It has become a family business at this point. I am very proud of them.  I have 2 delivering packages to the post office and 2 are helping with wrapping products in lovely tissue paper. I love their enthusiasm.

Thank you for your patience during this busy time!!

Have a fabulous day!

Shop and Website updates

I was able to make a return yesterday and have been making updates, processing orders as well as adding new items. I'm also in the works of updating the new website, I'm hoping it'll be complete very soon. I didn't realize how long it would take me with all the other events going on and with the holidays quickly around the corner. But for the meantime all items will be on the etsy shop. 

I have taken down all Halloween items from the Haus of Haunt site. Soon I will make all items unavailable on the Haus of Haunt site so this way you will only be able to purchase from my etsy shop until the new site is complete.

Once is ready you will have the option to purchase from either the etsy site or the website. 

I hope everyone has been having a fabulous weekend, especially with the additional hour of sleep with the time change today!

Friday, November 4, 2011

Will be out today

I'm heading out today in just a few short hours.

I'll be adding a few of the items I didn't get to add the other day before I leave.

Have a fabulous weekend!!

Happy Halloween!

HAPPY HALLOWEEN! My absolute favorite holiday! 

It's been a long weekend. I've been working overtime getting all orders caught up and I am happy to say they are all going out today, any orders placed over the weekend and today will be going out tomorrow. Whew!

Today I will be taking down the Halloween scents. I have a few left in stock so grab them while you can. After today they are gone. What is on etsy is all I have left. I will not be relisting anything as far as the Halloween scents go, including the sample sizes. This also goes for the perfume petites. What is on the website will be coming down as well.

Don't forget that many scents are coming down on November 18th as well.

Bathory will be making its debut sometime around November 9th or12th. Around this time I will also be introducing my new winter line as well.

Have a safe and happy Halloween!

TAT & Website updates

I just wanted to give an update on the turn around time. Both etsy and the website have been keeping me busy with orders, even though the website has not been updated because of the transition over to the new name. But, because of this the turn around time was slowed down to 3-5 days, more like 5 days. I've been working overtime to get all orders caught up and it looks like we'll be all caught up by Monday. This is wonderful news!!!

Also, since I have been working on getting orders I'm not quite finished with the Debaucherous website. I'm hoping though that I'll be done by the end of the week or by the following week since I will be away next Friday. 

Over the next week you may start to notice things being added to the site. Once it is completed I'll make an announcement here. The Haus of Haunt site will remain up but will not be available for purchasing product. There will be an announcement on the homepage directing everyone to the new site.  Eventually that site will be taken down.

Thank you so much for your patience!!!!!

Cooler weather & Holiday time!

The weather is finally getting cooler, it's beginning to feel like Christmas is coming. Getting the German Christmas line up and listening to Christmas music (yes I'm listening to Christmas music already, it helps get me in the holiday spirit! lol), it's so nice and believe it or not I have the heater on, I am cold! :-). I love this weather! And to think, Halloween is barely on Monday. Once Halloween comes, it's time for me to begin preparing for family events with my family and friends.  Every weekend from this point on is a fun filled weekend of holiday fun for us, every year and I love it! I rarely get to see my family all year long as they all live in other states, so this time of year means the world to me.

The remainder of the German Christmas line is going up today and I am also processing orders. I should be caught up by this weekend. 

Next Friday, November 4th, I have volunteered my services for a dear friend and will be unable to answer any convos or process any orders as I will be away. I will return on Monday November 7th.  Any orders received on Thursday November 3rd will be shipped out beginning Monday November 7th. The etsy shop will remain open.

I have received a few emails and convos in regards to samples for the German line, I will also be adding those by tonight.

German Line Debut & Product Update

Most of the German line bubbling scrubs and whipped soaps are up. I have a bit of a headache from the dilation of my eyes, so I was working slowly tonight.

I will have the remainder of the German line up tomorrow including lotions and sugar scrubs for the first time. These are not the same as our bubbling scrubs. They are emulsifying scrubs that when in contact with water emulsify into a creamy scrub that exfoliates and moisturizes the skin.

I will also be adding perfumes tomorrow of the German Christmas scents.

I will be offering another Christmas line, a more traditional line, sometime next month. This one stems from my southern roots. Yes, even though I was born and raised in California, I do have family from the south! It's more of an amusing line really.

I have a new winter line coming out soon as well called Dead Winter, a preview of the line will be coming next week. I haven't set a date for the new line yet though. Perhaps mid to late November.

And finally the new product I spoke briefly of last month will be making it's debut within the next couple weeks. It's called Bathory! An in the shower moisturizer. I will be starting off with just 12 scents. Bathory will only be available during the winter months since this is an item that can melt in the warmer months. Availability will be from November until about April. Scents will vary. I will not be offering this product in every scent I carry.

More info will be coming as well next week when I offer a sneak peek of my Dead Winter collection.

German Debut Update

Just a quick update to let you know, I forgot I have an eye exam today that includes a lovely dilation of the eyes in about 30 minutes. So when that wears off I will add the German line to my etsy shop. I apologize for the delay. I was editing photos and nearly forgot about the appt.

Birthday Sale Reminder

I just wanted to let everyone know that I am keeping the sale open for one more day since I wasn't able to add the lotions up just yet. I'm working on adding them today as we speak. The sale will end tomorrow, Monday by 6pm Pacific time.

Thank you for all the birthday wishes!! I had a wonderful birthday. I hope you all had a fabulous weekend!

I'm a bit delayed on adding a few things. I wanted to get caught up on orders first before I started adding new products. So now that I'm caught up, I'm currently editing photos for the lotions and then I'll add those up on etsy in a bit.

As far as the lip balms go, I did not hear back from my supplier, so I will be placing a phone call tomorrow. Maybe I'll get an answer that way. I'd really like to know if the lip balm tubes are suppose to work in that manner or if they are suppose to go back down after you turn them up. So I will keep you posted.

Thank you again for all your patience on the longer than normal TAT last week (the 3-5 days) and all the birthday wishes. Hope you all had a fabulous weekend!

Tuesday, October 18, 2011

New Items being listed

Over the next couple of days I am adding new lotions in existing scents like Zombie Girl, Pumpkin Regal and more. New soaps are coming, beginning with Army of the Dead. By the weekend I will be adding new soaps in entirely new scents that are not offered in other products.

More samples of the bubbling scrubs and whipped soaps are being added as well in nearly all the scents.

Next week the German line is being launched.  So excited!

New Etsy Shop Name

You may have already noticed Haus of Haunt on etsy is now Debaucherous Bath!

Recently etsy implemented a new option to change an existing etsy shop name. This of course happened after we opened a new etsy shop name of Debaucherous Bath. With a lot of thought, we decided to just change the existing etsy shop name from Haus of Haunt to Debaucherous Bath Body (etsy doesn't allow & or other symbols) since we already opened a shop with the name Debaucherous Bath we could not use that name for the existing Haus of Haunt shop. 

This change allows us to keep our existing feedback and sales and also allows our customers to continue to search for us while redirecting to the new name.

Our new website is still in the works as it takes quite a bit of time to move over all the items. We're aiming for November 1st, but it may be in the first week of November before it is complete.

I'm Back!

I'm back! Although my vacation with my husband was wonderful, I missed my kids terribly. I am glad to be back home.

The shop is reopening tomorrow as scheduled.

New perfumes are coming tomorrow. Later in the week will be a couple new soaps as well. As far as the new perfumes go, these are Limited Edition perfumes, limited in quantity and only available until October 31st or sold out, whichever comes first. They will not be available in the perfume petite sample sizes due to their limited availability.

Ok, a concern of mine I'd like to address:  Lip balms, a couple people have experienced a  couple problems with the lip balm tubes that I thought I'd address. First was how they twist up and not twist down, I have put in an email to my supplier to find out if they are suppose to be like this or if there is some sort of mechanical defect with them. I hope to hear back from them this week. I will update here when I hear back. I'm hoping it's not mechanical, I literally have hundreds of those tubes.

Second, a couple have experienced a crack in the lip balm, this is an error on my part. When I make the lip balms I place the tubes in a filling tray, once they cool off I then use a spatula scraper to scrape the tops to create a level and clean top, I believe this is where the problem arose from. I think I may have done this at a temp that may have been too cool for this. Usually I scrape at a slightly warmer temp, where it hasn't fully cooled off. 

I am offering replacements on the lip balms that are cracked, please contact me either via convo on etsy or email.

Once I hear back from my supplier on the tubes I will post here.

Vacation Clarification

Just a clarification about going into vacation mode on etsy. As I think I may have confused a few, as well as myself, lol.

I am setting the shop into vacation mode beginning Wednesday October 5th, so tomorrow Tuesday October 4th is the last day to order. All orders that were placed over this past weekend, today and anything from tomorrow are shipping today and tomorrow and by weeks end. So far though it looks like I have the shipping TAT down to 1-2 days still. 

I will be available until Thursday via email if you shall need me. After this I will not be available as I will be out of the country. The shop will reopen on Monday October 17th. 

I hope that clears things up.

Have a fabulous day!

Last Day to Order Before Vacation Notice

Just a friendly reminder that the last day to order before I close for vacation is Tuesday October 4th. All orders placed by then will ship out by the 7th. This applies to both the etsy shop and the website. The etsy shop will go into vacation mode, the website will remain open. I will be available via convo until the 5th. After this I will be unavailable as I will be out of the country.

I have been getting a lot of inquiries about body lotions. I will be adding body lotions back when I reopen on the 17th. I will be offering the lotions in all the scents I offer with the exception of:

Candy Corn
Marshmallow Woods
Turkish Mocha
Black Cat

Have a fabulous night!

Samples & Product Name Contest

Samples are delayed. I hate to say this but my printer was giving me nothing but grief last week. One of my toners was out and it turns out that none of the supply stores carries it any longer. My husband, the good man that he is, thought he was doing me a favor and picked one up for me but it was not the correct one and unfortunately was un-returnable since he opened it insisting it was the right one. I do love that man for trying.

So one was ordered and overnighted and I was finally able to get back to processing orders on Friday.

Today and tomorrow I will be adding the sample size bubbling scrubs and whipped soaps on etsy. I am caught up with orders for now.  Everything from the weekend is going out today.

And in regards to a new product I have coming out after vacation, well, I am working on a name for it. I had a name idea, but...I'm just not sure about it. It's a moisturizer used in the bath or shower and must not contain the words bath, shower or gravy (yes my dear friend offered that one).  I'm looking for a unique name, something dark and unusual, email me your idea at debaucherousbath [@]! gmail dot com and if I choose your idea, I will send you a free jar, with your choice of scent, from a selection of scents I will be offering it in.

Deadline is this Friday September 30th.

Sample sizes coming and Winter launch date

You asked and you are getting, sample sized whipped soaps and bubbling scrubs are being added today with the remainder of the perfumes, lotions and sugar scrubs by next week. I didn't realize how time consuming it could be to add items to etsy, but it is.

I'll be working on getting sugar scrub samples on etsy next week too.

Also, as always, turn around time is 1-3 business days and on many days I ship same day! All items are made fresh, all scrubs, perfumes and whipped soaps are made weekly and sometimes daily. Handmade bar soaps are made monthly to allow curing time. 

I have set a date for the debut of the first half of my winter line, which is the German theme. I can't wait! I also can't wait until the 2nd half either! The 1st set will be launching on Wednesday October 26th. I have not set a date for the 2nd Winter set, but it wouldn't be long after that since I am the anxious type.

Etsy Update

Most new items are on etsy. The only things I still need to add are lotions, sugar scrubs and the 5ml perfumes. But for the most part all new scents from the remainder of the fall line are up. It's taking me quite a bit of time, but I'm getting there. If you want lotion, sugar scrub or perfume and I don't have them listed on etsy yet, convo me and I'll set up a custom listing for you.

I won't be adding them to the website since I'm working on transferring everything over to Debaucherous, so for the time being you will find everything on etsy.

Thank you for your patience!

Vacation Clarification

There's a bit of confusion about my vacation notice.

As I mentioned previously, I will be closed on September 30th, but will reopen on Monday October 3rd. I have to leave out of town for a few days but will process all orders received during that time when I return. The etsy shop and site will remain open. All orders received by Thursday September 29th, 12pm Pacific standard time will go out that same day. Anything after that will go out beginning on Monday October 3rd.

Now, I will also be closed beginning October 7th, 2011. All orders placed until Tuesday October 4th will be shipped out prior to closure. All orders made after the 4th will be processed upon our return Monday October 17th.

During this time I will be out of the country and unable to answer any emails or convos. The etsy shop will be closed and no one will be able to place orders there. The website will remain open to orders, but will not be processed until my return.

This gives only a brief time for orders once I reopen from my initial closure. It also doesn't give much time for orders for the remainder of my Fall line that's debuting this Wednesday/Thursday. 

The good news is that I will be working like a mad woman getting all orders out as quickly as possible before I leave out of town. Not only that, but I will be working like an insanely mad woman to get all orders out before I leave the country.

And when I return I will be getting ready to debut the first half of the Christmas/Winter line.

Oh and before I forget, I was asked today how long was the Halloween and Fall line going to be offered until, Halloween until October 31st, naturally (or inventory is depleted) and the Fall line until November 21st or until inventory is depleted, whichever comes first.

And finally, the new etsy shop will be open beginning November 1st. The old etsy shop will remain, but not to purchase. A notice will be up in the announcements section with a link to the new etsy shop. Same goes for the new website, www.debaucherousbath,com, it will be ready around November 1st as well. It takes quite some time to move all images, products, etc over. And with me leaving out of the country I'm hoping to get it all over quickly and smoothly. I'm working on getting as much done as quickly as I can before I leave.

Well, other than that, I hope everyone is having a fabulous weekend!

New items coming!

New scents are coming next Wednesday, September 21st to both the site and etsy.

Also sometime next month a new product will be making it's debut. We're so excited about it too. It's perfect for the cold dry weather that is quickly approaching many of us.

Also, by Monday, we will be back to our 1-2 business day turn around. We were all caught up there for a couple days but we have found ourselves back to 2-3 business days yet again.

Have a fabulous weekend!

The fun never ends & Updates

The fun just never ends. I have been busy getting orders out. I am currently back to a 1-2 business day turn around time. This past weekend was a busy one working on orders. All orders received up until yesterday, Monday Sept. 12th have been shipped.

I also have the remainder of my fall  and Halloween line up debuting next week.

I'm working on getting the soaps up. It's taking me a little bit longer than planned since I am working on keeping up with orders. But by the end of the week all will be up and available for sure!

I will be closed on September 30th, but will reopen on Monday October 3rd. I have to leave out of town for a few days but will process all orders when I return. The etsy shop and site will remain open. All orders received by Thursday September 29th, 12pm Pacific standard time will go out that same day. Anything after that will go out beginning on Monday October 3rd.

It also looks like the transition will be taking place just after the 1st as well. New etsy shop and new website under Debaucherous Bath. I'm so excited!

The winter and Christmas line will be debuting in October as well.  I will be debuting them in 2 parts. The German inspired line will be debuting first. And then around either the end of October or the beginning of November I'll debut the 2nd line.

Winter Line Up

The winter line will be making it's debut very soon.

This years Winter line was inspired by my uncle who is from Germany. He came here as a child during WWII with his parents. He always has wonderful stories to share so this year I've dedicated my Winter line to him.



A traditional German beverage drunk during the Christmas holiday.  Usually prepared from red wine and heated with spices such as cinnamon sticks and clove and sweetened with sugar.

In my family, there is another version made usually for the children with cranberry juice and apple cider. Once the kids have had theirs, then the adults pour in the red wine to have what they consider real Glühwein.

Tart cranberries crushed with a medley of seasonal apples, cheap red wine, smoke billows of sweet hay, old rum, spices of clove, cardamon, nutmeg and cinnamon.


Lebkuchen can be traced back to the early days of the European spice trade when sugar was an expensive luxury and honey was the common sweetener.

Germany is the one country the with the longest and strongest tradition of baking the flat, shaped Lebkuchen that we know as Gingerbread.

Honey, hazelnuts and walnuts, candied orange and lemon peel, marzipan, spices of cardamom, cinnamon and ginger.

Sankt Nikolaus 

Sankt Nikolaus, was probably born around A.D. 245 in the port city of Patara in what we now call Turkey. Very little solid historical evidence exists for the man who later became the Bishop of Myra and the patron saint of children, sailors, students, teachers, and merchants. He is credited with several miracles and his feast day is Dec. 6, which is the main reason he is connected with Christmas. In parts of Germany Sankt Nikolaus brings his gifts for children on Nikolaustag, Dec. 6, not Dec. 25 like here in the United States.

Snowflakes landing on Douglas fir trees, vetiver, spearmint with a hint of hot cocoa and freshly baked butter cookies.


In Germany it is common to give marzipan in the shape of a pig as the new year presents, known as a "Glücksschwein", which means lucky pig.

Almond, sugar and a hint of rosewater.


Stollen is a loaf shaped cake made with flour, yeast and water with added dried fruit, candied fruit and nuts and sprinkled with powdered sugar. Here in the U.S., it is known as fruitcake. 

 A sweet cake bread with candied fruits of cranberries, raisins, orange zest and walnuts soaked in 50 year old rum.

There are a few others that are not German themed such as Thanksgiving 1893 as well as a few traditional scents.

Site Update Again

Well, there is a problem with the hosting company, they are not responding to tickets, emails or phone calls so I will be transferring to a completely different hosting company.

What does this mean for you? Nothing really, this is just my way of keeping you updated on what's going on. Hopefully by the end of next week or the beginning of the week of the 19th our new site will be officially up and running.

What does that mean for the existing site? It will be gone. I was going to have it referring over to the new site, but we will see. With the existing hosting company having problems I'm not sure now that will work out.

In the meantime, I am getting ready to post the Winter line up on the blog for a sneak peek!

Site Update

Just a quick note that we are still working on transitioning over to the new name of Debaucherous.  We're hoping to have the final transition over to the new name and new domain name in the next couple of weeks as well as the blog. The etsy shop will be changed over to a new etsy shop of DebaucherousBath at the same time.

Labels are taking a bit longer and we hope to have that taken care of by the end of the month.  All in all it's coming along a lot smoother and quicker than I thought it would.

Thank you for your patience!
