2023 Year in Review

Noraa Body Love 2023 Recap

There’s no doubt that 2023 was a wild year for the whole world. But I want to thank you for being a part of the Noraa Body Love family. We're deeply honored by your loyalty and trust.

All month long, I’ve been looking back at all we’ve done this year, and I’m overwhelmed! Two collaborations with local businesses, recognition both locally and nationally, 6 soap classes hosted, our products were in 5 stores at certain points during the year, we participated in 7 craft fairs, introduced nearly 40 new products and scents and soooo much more! Take a look at some more of our accomplishments this year that are thanks to YOU:

January: We collaborated with Cactus Blue Mexican Restaurant to design an exclusive Sea Salt & (Cactus) Blue Soap sold only at their new location in Emmaus. Learn about it here.
