Hello Summer!

We hope your summer has gotten off to a great start.  For us, summer is normally a time to relax and kick our feet up but this summer finds us having a consistent schedule of events to attend.

We have an exclusive event coming up in September that we had to do a photo shoot for last Friday in Brooklyn- talk about fun! We can’t wait to see the photos from it and share them with you all.  Also, last Wednesday June 24, 2015, we did our first (home based) workshop on making lip balm.  We had a great time, learned a lot and are getting some fantastic and helpful feedback! We are eager to do more.  A few of the items we’d like to teach you how to make include lip balm, powder, a basic lotion, toothpaste and tooth powders and more. We are happy to travel to the NY, NJ, PA and the DC metropolitan area to do workshops. We are only doing one to two workshops each month so be sure to book with us asap in order to get the date you’d prefer.

We are currently down to 3 different bars of soap; we have cedar/cypress/juniper- and only one bar of that one. Then we have our rainforest blend and lavender/patchouli bars.  On July 16th, more eucalyptus/frankincense and shea butter/tea tree will be ready.

That’s it for now, we hope you’re staying cool this summer!

Big News!!

(((Sigh))) It’s so easy to get caught up in life, and truthfully, we are really good at doing just that, but we haven’t forgotten about you.  We hope this blog post finds you and yours doing well with your best days just ahead of you.  If not, please, drop us a line, we are more than happy to pray for you and your family.

We’ve been moving right along.  We’ve done several vending shows (with more to come), and we have a new bar of soap that just came off the curing racks today.  It’s called Rainforest and it smells wonderful!!  I (Patrice) just might have a new favorite scent.  I actually hate fragrances, which is part of the reason we don’t use them in our products. This bar has an essential oil blend that includes violet, cedar leaf, citronella, eucalyptus, galbanum, lemon and pathchouli.

On to our news!  We are preparing to have our products sold in a physical store, here in New Jersey.  We’ll give you more information about that on a later date.

We are also preparing to do home shows and workshops.  Here’s how things will work: for both, home shows and workshops, you, as the host will have an opportunity to earn free and 1/2 priced products based on the sales from your event.

For home shows, we come in and give a brief, fun and educational talk about our products vs commercial products found in stores, with samples for your guests to try during the event. You will also get to choose an exclusive product for your event, from a list of items we make but don’t sell. This product will be your first free gift.

For workshops, you get to choose an item (we will provide a list) and we will teach you and your guests how to make your own.  Workshops will include a nominal fee as guests will take home the product made.  Because we love surprises, there are a few other added benefits and fun additions we will include in our shows and workshops but we don’t want to spill the beans just yet! You’ll have to book with us to find out. We’d love to come out and have some fun with you!  For now, we are doing shows in both the New Jersey and Washington, DC metropolitan areas.  We are currently booking only one to two shows/workshops each month, so contact us at admin@edenspureherbals.com to settle on a date!

In the meantime, enjoy 10% off  any order with the following code: 8EBRYAQORB1I

This code is good until Friday May 22, 2015 Shop here!

We’re Still Here!

We know, we know, it’s been a long time since you’ve heard from us.  We’ve been keeping busy.  Lots of changes, life transitions, new callings, various events and more.  We just wanted to stop in the midst of it all to let you know we’re still here and we’re still going strong!  In fact, we are making plans for several exciting events.  Our next upcoming event is a Prophetic Retreat in Basking Ridge NJ on April 10th and 11th.  We’re going to be selling our products, ministering with the prophetic team and Patrice will be leading worship on Friday night! Busy, busy, busy, and so much fun!

One of our latest cool happenings is that a baby developed a rash from every kind of lotion her mom used on her skin. Long story short, ours cleared it right up!  We love how our products promote healing.  It’s not just lotion, lip balm, etc, just for the sake of being lotion, lip balm, etc.  Our products really work!  We are constantly getting responses and stories like this.  We never tire of them and love being able to help others!

In case there’s something you need, here’s 15% off until March 26th- IBYWTOWQCYZZ

If you have Verizon as your internet provider, we are again having issues with Verizon customers accessing our website, so if that’s you, you can access our store directly by going here.

We hope your belly is nice and full and that your Thanksgiving was wonderful!  We hope you are able to find a multitude of things that you can be thankful for.  Among our many thanks is YOU and because we are thankful, we want to give.  So, for Black Friday and  Small Business Saturday we are giving you a discount!  Use the code TKAGJ5GADJOE and get 30% off your order on November 28 and 29, 2014.

On Cyber Monday, December 1, 2014, use the code 25QSNX28HJ5X  and get free shipping on all orders.

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. 🙂

Final Product Highlight: Soap!

We’re in the final stretch and here’s our last product highlighting blog post.  Because it tends to be the most attractive product, we’ve saved it for last.  Bar soap!  We can all thank my husband Jermaine for this addition to our product line.  I (Patrice) started out making liquid soap because that’s what I used.  I loved my shower gels but when I read the ingredients list, that was the end of that.  I bought a book on hot process soap making and began making liquid soap.

Everyone was excitedly using it, well, everyone except my husband. He always seems to be the last one to come around…  Anyway, he started asking when I would make bar soap because bar soap is his thing.  I hadn’t planned on taking that on until I came across something that said the soap I was making was more difficult than making bar soap.  I figured, if making liquid soap isn’t an issue and there’s easier, why not try bar soap?

Thus, another obsession was born!  Here’s the thing, liquid soap is cool, there’s lot’s you can do with it and I have kind of, but bars? Oh my word!!  First, they’re so pretty!! The possibilities are literally endless with the colors and scents and that’s a huge plus for a girl like me who quickly gets bored with routine.  It ended up that we all switched over to bar soap.  We love it!! I try to keep a bit of the liquid on hand for cleaning and my chiropractor favors it. So, here’s what we have in stock at the moment…

.20141023_212111

From the top left to right, we have our Chocolate/Pumpkin/Apple cider bar, Eucalyptus/Frankincense, Pumpkin, Pumpkin/Apple Cider. The circular bar is our Spanish Castile bar, then beneath that is my new favorite- Shea butter/Tea Tree.  The bar just above with red-ish hues has a masculine scent, Cedar/Cypress/Juniper, then there’s Coffee Mint (might be a nice exfoliating bar), Chocolate/Mint (with menthol for a nice tingling feeling) and lastly, we have a favorite- Lavender/Patchouli.

So, tell us, what bar you would like to try?  Also, we would like to know what bars you might like to see us carry.  We’re always changing the types of bars we make.  Sometimes it’s based on the season, other times, our preferences.  Keep in mind though, we don’t use chemicals so there won’t be any lime green candy apple or hot pink bars of cotton candy scented soap.  Although hot pink would be right up my alley.

We only use ingredients we would put on our own skin and we use essential oils and herbs for scent and color.

Well that’s it for our product highlighting series!  Thank you for sticking it out with us! We’re very excited about our upcoming launch on October 28, 2014.  We hope you are too!

Product highlight: Herbal Healing Salve

Hi, Jaiela here!  This week we’re featuring our Herbal Healing Salve.

For those of you that may not know, a salve is an ointment used for healing various skin conditions.  Around the colder time of year I use it for eczema breakouts.

My family has had to use salve for all sorts of things.  Burns, cuts, scrapes, rashes, and even gashes.  Sorry for the imagery but, one time, my little sister fell and got a deep cut right underneath her eye.  We put salve on it to stop the bleeding, and to close up the wound.  It’s healed up so much that now it just looks like she has a dimple under her eye. The salve has worked extremely well for us, and others.

Another instance, a few years ago, a friend of mine had an ingrown toenail, so she couldn’t dance on pointe with me and the rest of the class.  In attempt to make good use of the tons of empty Lip Medex containers lying around the house, I filled them with salve to put in my purse.   (My mom wasn’t joking, she really had a thing for that stuff, at least until we started making our own lip balm).

So I gave my friend the salve, and the very next week when I saw her again, she told me that a day after she put on the “green glop” I gave her, she noticed her ingrown toenail had popped right out!

             20140911_182036Before having radiation treatments, I was given some of the Herbal Healing Salve to use on the spot where they would administer the treatments.  I used it every day.  One day, during my doctor’s visit, I noticed my doctor carefully examining me with a puzzled look on her face.  She was looking for evidence of burning from the treatments and could not find any at all.  The Herbal Healing Salve helped me to escape some of the trauma that accompanies radiation treatments. KJ

That was all thanks to one ingredient, one of my favorite herbs called Plantain.
And no, not the banana. Although those are really good.           image

     Bet you thought this was a weed didn’t you?

Because one of plantains abilities is to draw out, it works wonders with mosquito bites, bee and wasp stings, and ingrown toenails.  Add in the benifits of all the other herbs and oils that are in the salve, and you’ll be ready to combat whatever skin problems come your way!

That’s all for now.  Look out for next weeks product highlight where we’ll discuss lotion.
