There are faces and feelings behind every product you’ve come to know in our Qēt Botanicals brand.
Our business and our messages to you are always personal to me. As an indie brand with a big heart, we feel the push and pull of what’s currently going on in and around the homes and businesses near and far from us. It’s sad and disheartening to see the disruption in the economy because of this coronavirus outbreak.
Many of you have come to know us through our online store. We appreciate your continued support and friendship. We also have two physical locations where we formulate, test, fulfill, share, and ship from.
Whether online or in our Skin Studios, we love to interact, develop friendships, and nudge fellow clean-living enthusiasts along their clean path for maintaining their best mental and physical health.
Having this connection with you online and in person means so much to us!
Since Qēt's day one, we've continually taken steps to keep our environment clean, friendly, and safe. Every day we make our treatments from natural and safe individual ingredients shortly before sharing them with you. Our treatments are 100% proprietary; the freshness, safety, purity, and effectiveness of our products has always mattered.
We are a Green Business of America company, we adhere to the Good Manufacturing Practice act, we’re an EWG Verified brand, and we go over and above the requirements of the Whole Foods standards of safe ingredients. We also avoid the 'safely rated' synthetics that are often allowed.
We always say that it all matters, and it’s these things in our work place that do. At home, there are many things that matter as well. It’s important that we all continue to show ourselves love and care during these times.
Making time to relax, unwind, and care for ourselves is a way of not only staying healthy, but it also shows those around us that we care about them. If we don’t feel well, it can affect our friends and family.
Let's continue to set aside the necessary time to rest, eat well, exercise, stay hydrated, and feed our body and mind with pleasant experiences. The few moments that we spend morning and night on ourselves can help us feel well and optimistic during this trying time.
Every day is a new day, and during these next few weeks we will continue to take things day by day. Should there be a shortage in a supply of a particular ingredient, or should our manufacturing and shipping timing change, you will be the first to know.
It's time to take care of yourself. Here are a few helpful reminders for self-care:
Be careful, not consumed. Rather than relying on social media posts, stay updated from reliable sources such as the World Health Organization, the Center for Disease Control, and Harvard Health Publishing via Harvard Medical School.
Remove your shoes when entering your home. Change from your ‘outside’ clothes to ‘home’ clothes once you know you won’t be going out again. Some also recommend to wash the clothes you've worn before wearing them again.
Keep the day out of your bed. Shower before going to bed to keep your bedding, and you!, free of potentially bad germs while resting. A good night’s sleep is essential to a body reset and keeping your stress levels and hormones in check.
- Keep your tools clean ~ your hands. Hand hygiene is very important. Our hands are the link between the outside world and our insides.
With Warm, Healthy Hugs,
