Earth Day Awards, Celebrity Products, Giving, and Mom’s Words

Meet our Newest Awarded Products

... and get reacquainted with our other award winners, if you haven't already done so. ;)

Here comes your Award-Worthy Skin and Hair

We’ve received two Earth Day Beauty awards in April. Yippee!

Cleansers, serums, botanical waters, hair and body products... we've been fortunate to have won awards for these various treatments. This month, we're celebrating and meeting our newest award winners, as well as re-introducing those that have already been touted as winners.  

Health concerns, thyroid issues, Rosacea, acne, and bad skin led to the sprouting of our proprietary formulations. We’re serious about using only the healthiest, cleanest, and proven plant-based ingredients ~ and they work! Since we’ve started sharing our treatments five years ago, we’ve made wonderful connections and have rooted an even deeper passion for what we do.  #grateful 

This month, try something new, share a treat with your Mom, or yourself, or send a gift to someone. We'll include your message and will ship it for you. One-and-done! 

Mother's Day 

She's a giver! 

Many Moms are true 'givers.' They give and give all throughout the day. Whether it's at home, at work, at the sports game, the get-together... Mom is often giving it all she has. At the end of the day it sometimes feels like there's nothing left to give. We know... we've been there ~ we're Moms, too!

And then the magic happens. Sometimes all it takes is two minutes of self-care, a little ritual, a feel-good routine, and bam! ... the moment of receiving begins.

Every day we can start and finish the day with a two-minute routine that gives back many benefits. A little time to care for ourselves can help build confidence, perk up the mood, re-set our buttons, and keep us healthy and happy. 

Whether we're giving it to ourselves on Mother's Day, or giving it away, time is something that is precious, and what we do with it counts. 

Giving Ideas

Giving a couple of minutes of 'me-time' here and there is a wonderful gift. When pairing it with healthy, safe, and sumptuous-to-use treatments.. well, it's kind of like the icing on the cake. 

Over the years and the holidays, these have been the most popular gift ideas that many have given (and received!) for Mom.

Getting Started Facial Kit ~ Restoring or Hydrating Skin Suite

Fresh Body Oil and Brush Set

Cocoa-Rose Vanilla Bath Melt

Rosewood, Jasmine, and Lavender Botanical Nectars

Ultra Garden Serum for Body

Hydra-Rose Eye Serum

Lavish Serum Salve

Some of these have won awards and are part of our May special. Check out the list below. 

Our Two Newest Award Winners

Why we love them. 

Most understand the need and benefit of our serums and oils for combination, dry and mature skin, but what about for oily, acne-prone, and sensitive skin? Yes, the right oils and the right blends can make these skin concerns healed and happy as well. 

Enter the first of our newest award winners, our Spot Serum. Unlike benzoyl peroxide or other topical treatments that dry the you-know-what out of the surface of the skin to kill the pimple or redness, our Spot Serum penetrates into the pore zapping the bacteria and de-flaming the inflammation. Turmeric, thyme, flowers of sulphur, sea buckthorn berry ~ all for healing upset and in a serum form. Just one well-shaken drop applied only to the skin mishap will let the healing begin.

Second we have our Nutri-Pomade & Mask. It's a pomade and mask for hair, but many have used it on their cuticles and hands after applying it. Warning: this is not to be done with conventional hair products. It comes in a solid form and is meant to be used sparingly. Proteins and vitamins penetrate and smooth the hair follicle, and the nutrients help shield the strands from elements further damaging the locks. Just a scrape with the back of the fingernail, melted between the fingers, and applied to dry hair after styling adds nutrition to locks, helps tame flyaways and frizz, and protects with natural luster. As a weekly scalp and hair mask overnight or for 30 minutes before shampooing is also a treat. Our hair is dead and lacks what it needs to keep it healthy, and our scalp can be very sensitive... minimal, healthy, wholesome ingredients make perfect sense.

Mom's Words

When my Mom was in her early 50s and I was still in high school, out of the blue she had a very debilitating stroke. After this, she was a woman of few words. But... when they came out, and when they came out correctly, they really meant something to all of us. 

Fast-forward a handful of years, my husband and I had little ones and I was chatting on the phone with my mom. It was one of those 'witching hours' when the kids were screeching and spinning out of control. If you have kids, you may be familiar with this time of day. :) I needed a little mom advice from my Mom to help them get in line before I pulled out all of my hair.

Over the phone, and very clearly, my Mom said, "Lisa, if you don't discipline your children, then who will?" 

I knew she was right. The kids mellowed out and gentle parenting did the trick. However, nearly 20 years later... those words still resonate deep within me. It's not just about our children ~ these words can be applied to just about everything

As we move ahead, there are bumps and dips in the road that we navigate over and around. These few words can so easily and effectively be brought into our daily lives.

I ask you this... if you don't discipline your self, then who will? This is about taking care of us ~ you and me. It's about making healthy choices. It's about finding the joy in the every day things. It's about thinking and living positively. It's about taking time to do what counts, while still being disciplined in what it is that we're set out to do. 

My Mom has been gone for some years, but these few simple words have stayed with me and mean so much. Thanks, Mom. 

A Mom ~ A Woman ~ A Different Package for Each of Us

"You know what's really powerfully sexy?... A sense of humor. A taste for adventure. A healthy glow. Hips to grab on to. Openness. Confidence. Humility. Appetite. Intuition. Smart-ass comebacks. Presence. A quick wit. Dirty jokes told by an innocent-looking lady. A storyteller. A genius. A doctor. A new mother. A woman who realizes how beautiful she is.” ― Courtney E. Martin

Realize how beautiful you are, and own it.
