We’re excited to announce the return of one of our most popular small-batch seasonal items: Ambre Blends Body Wash!
That’s right, Ambre Blends Body Wash is back. This luxurious body wash lathers up for a fresh and clean feeling that will stay with you all day long.
Our Body Wash is a healthy, rich, liquid soap serum that naturally cleanses and enriches your skin. With pure organic ingredients, it refreshes and enhances your body’s natural fragrance, making every individual wearer’s aroma unique to them. This seasonal release comes in a five ounce bottle, perfect for every day skin rejuvenation.
Everyone wants soft and supple skin when they get out of the shower. Revitalizing, cleansing and 100% organic, our Body Wash will leave your skin clean and moisturized. The environmentally-safe ingredients provide nontoxic, pure benefits to Mother Earth, protecting the environment from intensive farming methods and chemical treatment of natural ingredients. These benefits are not only beneficial to Mother Earth but to you as well, as the organic ingredient benefits are passed on directly to your skin.
Ambre Blends Body Wash contains a natural liquid soap base derived from organic oils and blended with gentle surfactant and skin-enhancing ingredients. Generous amounts of Ambre Blends Essences are crucial to the design of this product, leaving you with a sensual, alluring aroma.
Lather onto your arms, face and entire body for a fresh, comprehensive cleanse. A small amount goes a long way, so don’t over-apply. Thoroughly shake before each use to better blend the naturally-separating organic ingredients.
Ambre Blends Body Wash is available in all five signature scents and made with 100% organic ingredients. Handmade in Indianapolis, there are limited quantities available while supplies last! In line with our green business practices, the packaging is 100% recyclable.
Amanda has been part of the Ambre Blends team part-time since June, and we are so lucky that she decided to come on board full-time at the end of October!
Amanda started out working in Shipping and Fulfillment and has moved into Production where she makes Ambre Blends products by hand with love. “Amanda is the perfect addition to the production department,” said Ambre. “Her playful nature and ability to work so well with everyone is appreciated by all of us here at Ambre Blends.”
Read on to find out more about Amanda in today’s Staff Spotlight!
What is a day in the life of Amanda like? But first…COFFEE! After getting our boys around for school, I’m out of the door before they catch the bus. Thankfully, my husband has a very flexible work schedule and is able to tackle that part. After work, it’s a typical evening of dinner at the dinner table followed by a bit of family roughhousing (boy mom). I always make time to squeeze in a workout. I do have the guilty pleasure of earning Survivor or The Bachelor/ette if they’re on. Nine times out of ten, I look at the clock and it’s close to midnight.
What is your favorite part about working for Ambre Blends? Since none of my sweet sisters live nearby, and my house is full of boys, working at Ambre Blends is like having sisters. We all get along, work hard and play hard.
What are some of your favorite organic products that you use? I’m a firm believer that what you put in your body should be just as important as what you put on your body. We eat pretty clean and I try to buy locally grown produce whenever possible. About 90% of the food we buy is organic except for the occasional pack of Oreos! We use Tom’s toothpaste, Ambre Blends Natural Deodorant, Dr. Bronner’s and Mrs. Meyer’s soaps and household cleaners. We use A LOT of Bragg’s apple cider vinegar.
What is your favorite Ambre Blends product/essence? I used to be a die-hard Solace girl, but Ahnu is definitely creeping up into first place. I love the Skin Tonic and so does my husband. I LOVE the Body Cream and Ambre Glow. I think the Glow is a flirty twist on the Body Cream.
What is a fun fact about you that people don’t know? I’ve had a snowball fight in shorts and a tank top on the 4th of July! (One of my brothers lives in remote Alaska and he got married on the 4th of July.)
What do you enjoy doing outside of work? Music plays a big role in our lives. We see a lot of concerts. My parents have a several hundred-acre farm in northern Indiana that we love to spend time at. My in-laws also have a lake house in northern Indiana, right down the road from my parents. The long and short of it…when we aren’t at a concert, we are in northern Indiana riding dirt bikes, snowmobiles and boating!
Why do you think people should be using Ambre Blends products? Every single item in our product line has been hand-made, hand-labeled and inspected with the consumer’s best interest in mind. I wish people knew the amount of LOVE that radiates inside the Ambre Blends Disco Hut, it’s truly a magical place.
What has been one of the most rewarding experiences about working at Ambre Blends? It’s been a pipe dream of mine for YEARS to be part of the Ambre Blends team. I was literally over the moon when I was offered a job with the company. I’m so proud to tell people “I WORK THERE” When the opportunity presents itself. I think that everyone deserves a job that they love and also where they are valued. Ambre treats every single one of us exceptionally well.
What was your first job? My first real job was at an ice cream shop called The Creamery. I rode my Honda Spree to work!
Ali is the newest member of our staff, but that doesn’t mean she’s new to Ambre Blends. Ali has been working here for about three months as the Shipping and Fulfillment Manager, but she’s been wearing Ambre Blends for over 10 years!
If you’ve ever ordered online from us, Ali is the one who puts together your shipment and mails it out to you. In addition to shipping and fulfillment, Ali also puts together all of the gift sets that our customers love.
“Having Ali on our team is nothing short of a blessing,” said Ambre Crockett, owner and creator of Ambre Blends. “She was already family so naturally it seemed right. So when we needed to hire another person, we approached her thinking it is probably a pipe dream because she already had a great gig! Well, we got lucky. Ali brings so much to the table already in her short time here and we know that she has Ambre Blends best interest at heart. I walk in and she is smiling everyday. That alone means the world. She is a forward thinker who is always looking for ways to improve the efficiency of her department. The Ambre Blends Disco Hut is even more of an exciting environment because she is here!”
Learn a little more about Ali and why we love having her as part of our team!
What is a day in the life of Ali like? I typically check email for international shipping quotes and stock product in the morning. The rest of the day is spent reviewing and shipping both retail and wholesale orders. I also track any new customers and enter them into our system. With each shipment we provide various product information depending on whether they want info on the product or if they are a new customer, or just depending on what they buy.
What is your favorite part about working for Ambre Blends? The people, of course! It’s like working with family you love daily, but the job still gives me plenty of time to be mom. It doesn’t feel like I go to work, but I do work hard. It’s also very fulfilling to be a part of something you believe in with your heart and soul.
What are some of your favorite organic products you use? Having two small children, I am very picky about what comes in our house, but more importantly I want Mother Earth to be around for them. I use cleaning supplies and products that are eco-friendly and we use Green BEAN Delivery to locally source a lot of our food, especially produce and meat. I use a lot of essential oils for everything, including bug spray, pain relief and medicinal purposes to name a few.
Favorite Ambre Blends product/essence? My favorite product hands down is the Skin Tonic. Having recently had my second baby, I had some stretch marks that were very painful. The Skin Tonic worked wonders both on treating them because they really hurt and also on diminishing them and they are truly fading away. I wish I had before and after pictures! I wear Solace and occasionally Invoke. I love the way Unmasque smells, but I don’t like it on me…my husband however…wow! It smells amazing on him.
What’s a fun fact about you that people don’t know? I was once in a commercial for a pizza place in my home town. I jumped out of a swimming pool (I was a swimmer) and yelled “free breadsticks!”
What do you enjoy doing outside of work? Hanging with my hubs, Drew, who is seriously my BFF and a super fun guy, and our kiddos Kat and Will. We have a lot of dance parties and cook a lot of amazing food, usually with a daily tea party and performance by our kids.
Why should people be using Ambre Blends? What’s the number one thing you wish people knew about Ambre Blends? People should be using Ambre Blends because the scent is simply amazing, yet not overbearing, and it is a safe product for your body. I remember being in a smoky casino in Vegas and people stopping us asking, “what are you ladies wearing that makes you smell so good?” This happens a lot, but that place was almost overbearing with smoke and the product still came through. I think the biggest thing people do not realize about our product is that it smells differently on different people. It’s all natural and every person is naturally different. Like I mentioned before with Unmasque, I love it but I don’t like it on me. It smells amazing on my husband, and actually my mother-in-law as well. My dear friend from home smells awesome wearing Ambre, but I can’t smell it on me. We are all different.
What has been one of the most rewarding experiences about working at Ambre Blends? My work/life balance – I get to work hard here and have fun working with people I love doing something I believe in to my very core, but then I still have plenty of time to be mom, which is the role that has defined me.
What was your first job? I was a lifeguard.
Anything else we should know? I love you!
Meet Adam Crockett, Director of Operations at Ambre Blends! Adam has worked full-time at Ambre Blends since 2012, although he has been involved with the company since 2007. He has served as the Shipping Manager in the past and we also consider him our resident tech guru/handyman.
“Adam is so instrumental when it comes to the bones of this business,” said Ambre. “He handles a lot of stuff that is crucial in keeping this business running. From legal, accounting, insurance, supplies and all things operational down to handyman work around the building, we could not do it without him! Adam helps me make productive, wise decisions when my heart can get in the way, he’s 100% the ying to my yang. Working with my husband has its challenges (naturally) but I would not trade it for the world.”
You might have seen Adam before working the checkout at our Holiday Open House or in our Put Down the Cologne campaign. Now you can learn a little bit more about Adam and why he’s an integral part of our Ambre Blends team!
What is a day in the life of Adam like? I start out every morning by checking inventory levels, overnight orders and financials. Then I get to paying the bills, checking our social media, ordering for ingredients and packaging, doing daily financials, helping with shipping if needed and then taking our packages to the post office.
What is your favorite part about working for Ambre Blends? I love everything about working at Ambre Blends! I love the people I work with, I love our work space and I love knowing that we are making and selling high-quality body care products that are good for the body and environment.
What are some of your favorite organic products you use? I am a BIG Ambre Blends user. I also love organic cotton clothing and footwear, and any healthy, organic foods I can find.
What’s a fun fact about you that people don’t know? After I graduated from Indiana University, I went to work as an outdoor expedition guide. I led two week canoeing trips in Northern Minnesota, caving and climbing trips in Indiana and Kentucky, and mountain biking, climbing and snowboarding trips in Lake Tahoe. I even did a 21 day winter mountaineering course in the Sierra Nevada Mountains.
What do you enjoy doing outside of work? I love being out at my property in Parke County, Indiana. I love working on the property and cabins, swimming in the pond, riding trails on my dirt bike and, in general, just being in the woods.
Why should people be using Ambre Blends? What’s the number one thing you wish people knew about Ambre Blends? In this day and age of everyone caring so much about what we put IN our bodies, we should also care as much about what we put ON our bodies. I wish everyone knew how much thought, energy and love we put into creating all of our body products so that they are the healthiest and greenest on the market.
What has been one of the most rewarding experiences about working at Ambre Blends? The most rewarding thing about working at Ambre Blends has been watching the organic growth of the company. We have stuck to our original ideas, plans and recipes since we started and it is so great to see our customers embracing what we have worked so hard to build.
What was your first job? My first “job” was working in the warehouse of my father’s company, Karma Records, putting stickers on CDs, tapes and albums, sending out promotional materials and checking inventory stock levels. My first “real job” was bagging groceries at O’Malia’s Food Market.
Anything else we should know? I have tried to live my life by the mantra (and Lucille Ball quote), “I would rather regret the things I have done than the things I have not.” It has worked well thus far for me.
