A popular tv show for entrepreneurs once said they loved cosmetics because there is a huge markup. We don't believe in that kind of business model. Our ingredients are simple and effective but they are also expensive. You won't find another skin care line that only uses organic jojoba, unbleached USA beeswax, and optional pure essential oils in their line without adding a bunch of other fillers.
We rarely offer coupons so from our family to yours, we wish you a very happy holiday season! To kick it off we are offering 15% off your entire purchase through Monday, November 30th with coupon code: Monday15.
We hope you will share this post with others. Thank you for your continued support of a small, family owned business!

"I've been using the face and body creme as my primary face lotion for about a year. I was doubtful as first, as I have sometimes oily skin with breakouts. I LOVE this stuff! I use it morning and night, all over my face. Yes, even under my eyes and eyelids. I finish with a coat on my lips as a lip balm or pre-lipstick treatment. Great stuff!" (Facebook 5 star review) - Jennie K.
It's amazing how the word starts to spread. Last week we received an email from Ginger of Maple Ridge Acupuncture in Penn Yan, NY asking for wholesale information. She had received samples of our products from someone else we partner with...Matthew from Myo-Bar who specializes in making myofascial tools. I think he found us when we used to sell our products on ebay. Great customer service, partnerships, referrals...it really makes all the difference!
Maple Ridge Acupuncture will carry Skin Salvy Emollient for Dry, Cracked Skin, Face & Body Creme for general dry skin, lip repair lip balm, and organic jojoba.

I just watched an episode of Dr. Oz that discussed the symptoms of anemia (low iron levels). Some of the questions he asked:
1) do you feel winded after climbing a flight of stairs?
2) do you feel cold when everyone else is comfortable?
3) are your nails brittle?
Vitamin C helps with iron absorption so some easy food combinations to incorporate into a diet include:
1) kale or spinach salad with strawberries
2) omelette with red peppers
His show recommended a daily intake of 18 mg of iron and 75 mg of vitamin c per day could be helpful. As always, check with your physician for medical advice.
Another great resource is this article by the Mayo Clinic on iron deficiency anemia: http://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/iron-deficiency-anemia/basics/prevention/con-20019327

Skin Salvy Face & Body Creme; organic jojoba, beeswax, soothes general dry skin, concentrated, all natural cream
A quick demonstration on how to use Face & Body Creme. Great for general dry, itchy skin with even more jojoba for a creamy feel. Concentrated, so a little bit will go a long way. Even though it's concentrated, it absorbs readily when applied in small amounts especially after bathing. Helps soothe itchy skin. For more information, please visit our Face & Body shop page.
When you have your morning "cup of joe" did you know there might be some additional fillers: wheat, soybean, brown sugar, rye, husks/sticks, acai seeds, barley, corn? The American Chemical Society will present research about a new test that will detect additional substances present in the coffee prior to going to market. According to the article, once the beans have been ground, it's very difficult to visually detect the presence of the fillers. A coffee shortage is encouraging the increase of fillers to maximize profits for producers.
To learn more, please visit the link above but in the meantime, the best advice is to purchase whole beans which you can grind at the store or home. Our personal favorite is fair trade and organic Peace coffee based out of Minneapolis which is available at many local food co-ops and retail locations.
What do you think? Are you surprised by the added fillers - we'd love to hear from you!
Customers have shared a lot of tips plus I've learned quite a bit working in the industry. It feels great to share information that may help someone else.
