From A Fable will be closed on Etsy from July 13-27, while travelling. My website http://www.fromafable.com will still be open for accepting orders, but none will be fulfilled until starting on the 28th. I have chosed to keep my external website open so that people can order Lughnasadh candles while I am gone, and I can return and promptly send them out just in time! As this new moon cycle begins, prepare for the coming of Lughnasadh, and treat yourself to a cauldron! Please contact me if you have any questions. Love and Light! ~Lauren R.
Harvest Moon Oatmeal and Shea Soap
What comes to mind when using this soap is a warm, comforting bath or shower on chilly fall night under a full harvest moon. Followed by a warm sweater, and a cup of coffee or hot tea. Maybe even hot cocoa. Warm candlelight, and the utmost relaxing atmosphere that this well-rounded soap made to comfort will only add to.
Each soap is 3.38 in. x 2.38 in. x 1.19 in. in size, and weigh 3.5 ounces. Scented with the delicious, heart-warming combination of pumpkin and brown sugar, and made with a soap base of combined oatmeal and Shea butter. This is an all-around comfortable and soothing bar of soap. There is a small amount of pumpkin seed on one side for a light exfoliation should it be desired, though it is more for decoration. The oatmeal in the soap base acts as a very gentle and soothing exfoliant all on its own. Ground pumpkin seed is used as a garnish on one side of the soap, though it is more for decoration and aesthetic than additional exfoliating power.
This is one of my few bath and body products that incorporates a skin safe fragrance oil. Everything used in my products is heavily researched and tested, meaning you can rest assured that even those with sensitive skin should be able to use this product. If you are nervous about the specifics of the oil, or would like to know more about how much is used in this soap, do not hesitate to contact me! I’m always happy to help ease any concerns you may have. The blend of pumpkin and brown sugar is sweet and rich, adding to the hearty comfort this soap offers.
All soaps are handmade and designed with care. Poured in small, frequent batches to ensure a fresh product for each customer. This listing is for a single bar of this soap, and I promise you’ll be hooked after one use!

*This product is mostly natural, but not edible.
*These bars of soap are made from a melt and pour soap base that is pre-made. Though it is not made from scratch, rest assured that I have carefully examined the supplier as well as the ingredients involved. This soap would not be included in my shop unless I had tested it myself, and have the utmost confidence in its gentle properties.

*All of the products at From A Fable are heavily researched and tested on multiple skin types before being listed for sale.

We don’t need anyone’s relaxation time ruined by that!
Everything at From A Fable is crafted with allergies and sensitivities in mind. I aim to make sure that there are fun, body-loving products out there for people with difficulty finding bath and body products to use that do not cause negative reactions. I have extremely sensitive skin, normally needing to turn to free and clear products that seem to be harsher than need be on my body, but have discovered which ingredients can come together to form sensitivity-friendly recipes. If you have any questions about the ingredients of this product, do not hesitate to contact me via Etsy, Instagram, Facebook, Tumblr, Twitter, or email (email@example.com) to address your concerns. I make it a point to know my products inside and out, and will be happy to put your mind at ease so you can enjoy luxurious bath and body experiences.
SHIPPING AND RETURNS:
I ship through USPS (domestic as well as international), and always use Priority Mail or First Class depending on weight, unless otherwise requested. Further contact and negotiation will be required for anything being expedited when it comes to shipping. Items vary in processing time, so please consult the individual items for their processing times. Priority Mail and First Class shipping usually takes anywhere from 1-4 days to reach its destination.
From A Fable is not responsible for any international taxes, import delays, or other issues that can arise during the shipping process. Once it leaves the shop, I am no longer able to control its care or process.
I accept payment via credit card or PayPal. I accept Etsy gift cards as well. Cancellation must occur BEFORE the items are shipped, and any concerns should be addressed via direct communication with the owner of From A Fable, Lauren Runck.
In order to return a candle, it must be in its original condition (meaning that once it has been used AT ALL, I will not accept it back). A refund will then be issued once the candles are back in my possession to ensure they are in re-sale condition. Refunds will not include original shipping costs, as those have been used up. Return shipping is also the responsibility of the customer.
I do not accept returns of earrings or bath and body products, pertaining to health code standards. Once the item has shipped, I will not accept back ANY bath and body products or earrings. Necklaces are still available to negotiate returns or exchanges, though the customer is still responsible for return shipping.
Should there be any damage to a product on its way to you, please contact me immediately with photos so that I can submit a report with my shipper. Each situation will be handled from there, to ensure that the customer has not wasted their money on damaged goods. I strive for quality products as well as customer service! We don’t need anyone’s day ruined by faulty products!
I want you to be happy with your purchase, and absolutely love it. If for whatever reason, the product does not meet your satisfaction, please contact me right away. I will gladly refund the purchase (according to the guidelines found underneath shipping and return policies) within 2 weeks of receipt for candles less the original shipping costs. I do not accept returns or exchanges for bath and body products. If doing an exchange or return, the buyer is responsible for returning candles in the original condition as well as return shipping costs. If product was damaged during shipping, I will need pictures of the damage to submit a claim to the shipping company. Contact me right away if this is the case so that I can sort out the situation with you.
I always take custom orders, and love being contacted for them!
As for wholesale, message me privately for that as well to talk about amounts, pricing, etc.
Please burn candles responsibly.
Burn candles for 1-1.5 hours for each inch in diameter. This is especially important for the first burn (to keep the candle from doing what is called “tunneling”). Allow the melt pool to reach the edge of the container before extinguishing, so that you get a chance to burn all of the wonderfully-smelling wax!
Before lighting your candle, make sure the wick is trimmed to about 1/4 inch long. Keep debris out of your melt pool. If the flame is flickering, either the wick is too long or your candle is in a draft. Large flames will burn/consume your candle more quickly than a smaller, steadier flame will.
As for soaps and other bath and body, please read descriptions and ingredient lists if you are like me, and have sensitive skin. I test all soaps myself, and will always let you know in the descriptions which kind of fragrance or essential oils are used, which soap base they are made with, as well as any herbs or exfoliants that are added to the mix. I am open about all ingredients, as well as knowledgeable about the suppliers and their effects on the body. I welcome any questions or concerns about the products so that I may put them at ease and provide further information. Pay close attention to my ingredient lists, as I do not accept them for returns once they have been used!
