Holy Discounts!! (Batman)

First, I (Patrice) have to say, the Batman reference in the title was sheer compulsion, nothing more.  I don’t like Batman at all. The way he speaks grates on my nerves. I don’t understand the pseudo sexy, wispy, whisper thing he tends to love doing.  He sounds stupid. The issue is, when the lyrics of a song, a slogan, or title fit a situation, I feel compelled to insert it.

I (Jaiela) like Batman,  especially the older version with the ((WHAM!)) ((POW!))’s, underwear on the outside, and Batman’s drawn on eyebrows.

Those were the good ol’ days. 🙂 Yes, the good old days when Jaiela, and I weren’t even born, lol!  Jaiela loves old movies and shows.  It’s really cool to see how excited she gets over the classics.

Know what else grates on my nerbs (as my 7 year old says, lol)? Holiday events, “restaurants”, and potluck dinners where the people preparing the food refuse to actually cook the food.  It’s all prepackaged stuff with God knows what in the ingredients.  I’m always genuinely shocked that some people don’t/won’t cook.  Now, I know this is all coming from a homeschool mom but wait, no, I’m a homeschool mom!! Of four!!  I get *no* time off, I do speaking events, singing events (coloratura soprano here, woot woot!), homeschool activities, church activities, doula work, placenta encapsulation (yeah, I know…) and my oldest and I run this really neat herbal business, making all the products ourselves so I know what busy is, and, we cook our food.

I think it’s sad when a homecooked meal becomes a commodity and the norm is the prepackaged junk that fills the inner aisles of supermarkets. (Shop the perimeter folks!) Don’t you deserve more than the occasional homecooked meal?  I think you do. We’ve started back up on a bit of bread eating which reminds me that I need to get going on my sourdough starter again because I let it go. 😦  There’s nothing like fresh, homemade sourdough bread.  I could kick myself for letting my starter die. (((sigh))) I won’t though, because I really like myself.

Anyway, on to the discounts!  With Thanksgiving, Small Business Saturday and Cyber Monday all days away, we thought we’d offer greater discounts on the latter two days.  So, on Small Business Saturday, November 29, 2014 use the code TKAGJ5GADJOE and get 30% off your order.  On Cyber Monday, December 1, 2014, use the code 25QSNX28HJ5X  and get free shipping on all orders.

That’s it for now!  Happy Thanksgiving!! (EAT REAL FOOD)

Weekly Check-In

We hope this blog post finds you all cozy and snug where ever you are today.  As we type this, it’s drizzling outside, there’s a chill in the air.  It’s the kind of weather that’s nice when you don’t have to go out. Great for hot tea, long baths and napping. Actually, that sounds like a good plan for the rest of the day.  We made up a few exclusive items and sold them at the craft fair at Fabricland- a cold and flu relief tea blend, and a winter bath salts blend.  We’ll definitely make some of the bath salts up for ourselves and use them, they smell great and have lots of healthy, detoxifying ingredients in them.

Speaking of the craft fair, it went pretty well.  We’re seeing a trend…  Even when we do vending events where the turn out is lower than expected, we still do quite well with the crowd that attends.  That’s a blessing and great confirmation for us.  Here’s a not so great picture of Jaiela at our table.  We got too busy to get a really good shot- which is a good “problem” to have if you ask us. 🙂

Product Highlight: Muscle Lotion & Menthol Salve!

I (Patrice) have always thought of myself as a die-hard Spring season loving girl but as I sit here, snuggled on my bed, nursing my now 11 month old son, typing on my laptop, chill in the air, light rain outside my window, I realize, Autumn is really growing on me. It’s quite lovely.  I’m already making soups, chili and will soon make a big batch of apple sauce and pies with apples from our next door neighbors tree. Don’t tell my physical trainer Tatyana about the pies- I’ve lost 22lbs working with her since June. 🙂


Ok, ok, I’m getting sidetracked…this isn’t why I’m writing. Last week, we promised to come to you each week highlighting a product or two leading up to our launch date.  Our hope is that by the time we launch, you will be more knowledgeable about what we offer, why we offer it and how it can help you.

First, let’s get this out of the way…  What you put on your skin, goes into your skin.  It’s the largest organ you’ve got and it’s important to steer clear of toxic and deadly ingredients that cause a myriad of health issues.  Our commitment to you is to never add anything we wouldn’t put in or on our bodies into our products.  And, just so you know, we are sooo far past things like Vicks, and Vaseline, it ain’t even funny.  Here’s a visual of ingredients to avoid putting on, thus in, your skin.

With that in mind, this week, we highlight two similar products- our Muscle Lotion and Menthol Salve.

20140911_181458-2
20140911_182036

The biggest difference between these two products is distilled water.  Water produces the lotion form and no water produces the salve form. (Detailed ingredients will be listed on the website and products) Both are awesome for many types of pain- headaches, muscle spasms, achy, overworked muscles, bruises and more.  Both will produce a cool/tingling sensation when rubbed on the skin- think Icy/Hot.

When dealing with things like chest congestion or any localized pain, we reach for the Menthol salve.  When I come home from working out with Taty, I shower and reach for the Muscle Lotion knowing that even my fingernails might be sore soon. Which will work best for you is simply a matter of preference for lotion or salve.  We love ’em both!

That’s it for this week!  I’ll leave you with a product testimonial from our earliest days of making these two products.  Note- this was before we started to add menthol, which is responsible for the icy/hot feeling.

“When I tried the Happy Muscle Lotion for my muscle spasms, I wasn’t sure it would help.  When I used it, I expected to feel an Icy Hot/Ben Gay type of feeling but I felt nothing and dismissed it.  It wasn’t until later that I suddenly realized I wasn’t in any more pain.” JS
