Thistlehillbotanicals.com adds NEW https Security

 

thistlehillbotanicals.com secure

What is HTTPS, and why should you care?

This might be more technical than you (or I) can understand, but I feel it is important. Operating a business and producing your own products can be difficult.  I have learned to delegate important tasks like website security to people that are experts in their field.  That is why I hire an amazing woman to manage the “techie” part of my website.  I have faith in her and you can too! Thank you Jean 🙂

Our website https://thistlehillbotanicals.com    has a new streamlined look, it also has enhanced encryption now.

HTTP stands for hypertext transfer protocol. It’s a protocol that allows communication between different systems. Most commonly, it is used for transferring data from a web server to a browser to view web pages.

The problem is that HTTP (note: no “s” on the end) data is not encrypted, and it can be intercepted by third parties to gather data being passed between the two systems.

This can be addressed by using a secure version called HTTPS, where the “S” stands for secure.

This involves the use of an SSL certificate — “SSL” stands for secure sockets layer — which creates a secure encrypted connection between the web server and the web browser.

Without HTTPS, any data passed is insecure. This is especially important for sites where sensitive data is passed across the connection, such as e-commerce sites that accept online card payments, or login areas that require users to enter their credentials.

Save the Tatas! Eliminate XenoEstrogens

Save the Tatas! Eliminate XenoEstrogens

Long before XenoEstrogens were a known thing, my grandmother Bessie had to deal with cancer. After having a radical and horribly done mastectomy she died years later from bone cancer. So, Save the Tatas! Eliminate XenoEstrogens.

Getting the chemicals OUT of your daily routine is SO important! Most mass market deodorants have dangerous XenoEstrogens. Save the Tatas! Eliminate XenoEstrogens. ESPECIALLY when you are applying those chemicals under your arms where your lymph nodes work so hard. All of the products that you apply to your skin, actually go IN to your body.

Thistle Hill Botanicals can help. We have created a Natural and VERY Effective Natural Deodorant that is a GREAT value. A 2 ounce container of Finally! Natural Deodorant that Works will last one person 3-5 months, making our product not only ALL natural and effective but a GREAT value! Customers have begged us not to ever stop making our deodorant. Some customers have told us they use it every 48 hours. Every body is different.

We now offer our natural and effective deodorant in three all natural scents: Light Citrus, Organic Lavender, and Ancient Spice. We are currently also developing a NEW formula for extra sensitive skin. Our deodorant is safe for use with Chemotherapy patients (we have been told this by a few patients).

If you have young children or teens starting to use deodorant please start them early with natural products. Our chemical loads in our bodies builds up year after year. In the past what we did not know could hurt us, but we know better now! This is a great item to share with those you love, our Finally! Natural Deodorant that Works makes a wonderful little stocking stuffer. So Save the Tatas! Eliminate XenoEstrogens. Share with your friends and family.

All of our products are made with love in Floyd, Virginia USA in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains.

Top 3 Reasons to Switch your Deodorant Now!

info

Would you eat Parabens ?
Top 3 Reasons to switch NOW to Natural Deodorant!

Parabens! They are the chemical substance that acts as the preservative in the beauty and cosmetics products i.e. body lotions, deodorants’, mascara, shampoos, and foundations. Once you apply them on your skin, these are quickly absorbed into your bloodstream just like the nutrients that you eat. However, are these really what your body needs? Should you really be consuming them? Let’s find out!

1. Hormone Disruptors
Parabens are like estrogen that is already present in our body; and excess of estrogen like substances in the body results in disruption and dysfunction of the hormonal system. This disorder and dysfunction gives way to more misbalances and problems in the human body. Hormones present in the human body are accountable for many human functions i.e. digestion, reproduction, and secretion and that should be enough to tell you how a misbalance can ruin your day.

2. Early Puberty
Deodorants have become a way of life. We use them every day and irrespective of the age; but is this a good practice? Daily use of these chemicals adversely affects the growing girl’s body which is changing in both ways: physically and hormonally. So, the use of parabens is dangerous for a growing girl as its exposure leads to early puberty, early breast development, and early commencement of menstrual cycle.

3. Hormonal Cancers
As already discussed, parabens are highly similar to estrogen and thus use of parabens leads to a number of cancers like cervical and ovarian cancer. Moreover, its longer exposure may even lead to breast cancer.

PLEASE SHARE with your loved ones and friends, this is information everyone should know.

Another Fabulous Testimonial about Thistle Hill Botanical’s Natural & Effective Deodorant!

Thank you JB of Virginia for this testimonial…..

I just wanted to let you know how much I LOVE your deodorant! I switched to non toxic over three years ago and have literally tried dozens of products since then! Very expensive options online and almost every choice in my local co-op and natural food/product stores. Some work for a few hours, but then reapplication is necessary. Some work but irritate my skin due to high levels of baking soda or the like. And some work for a week or two and then not so much?

I have been using your Ancient Spice tub deo for over a month and it works amazingly!!! The smell is not only delightful but it lasts for over 24 hours!! I am in awe and beyond thankful to have finally, finally, FINALLY, found a natural, healthy choice deodorant that truly, actually, honestly works!!! I cannot thank you guys enough! My seemingly endless and disheartening search is finally over! I will be a customer for life and recommend you to everyone I know. Again thank you so much!
Sincerely,
JB Roanoke,
It never gets old….we continue to get great testimonials about our “Finally” Natural Deodorant that Works! YES, it REALLY does! Our mission is to make top quality products and to have happy customers who tell their friends how happy the are 🙂

Top 4 Tips when transitioning to a Natural Deodorant

We all want LESS CHEMICALS in our bodies right? Well sometimes there is a transition period when you switch to an all natural deodorant. Hopefully these ideas will help ease this time for you.

A suggestion from a client: If you have been using deodorants with chemicals your body will need to detox. YES, Thistle Hill Botanicals agrees!

Our suggestion is to apply raw apple cider vinegar to your armpits after cleansing, drink lots of water, & wear natural fibers. A clay detox paste will speed up the process of detoxing. If possible do this for at least 1-2 weeks before starting to use your new deodorant from Thistle Hill Botanicals. If you have any questions we are here to help….just send us a message at thistlehillbotanicals@gmail.com

Soon we will have a listing in our online shop where you can order enough Clay to do a few “drawing” Paste treatments to help with detoxing from your old deodorant.

Recap on the 4 tips:

1. Cleanse and apply Raw ACV

2. Drink LOTS of water (good for so many things)

3. Wear natural fibers

4. Apply a few clay paste treatments

Repeat these at any time if you feel they are warranted.

The Number One Reason Why!

images Here is the rather personal story of how cancer touched me at an early age. This event has changed my awareness throughout my life and is the WHY I make Natural Products, WHY I care, WHY I stay motivated.

One morning when I was a preteen my grandmother was visiting our home. I did not know that she was in my parents room getting dressed. I walked in and saw her getting her self together, she was quite startled! I do not remember being told that she had had Cancer. Back then they preformed rather brutal and dis-forming radical mastectomies. Not only was what I saw scary at my age, but how upset my Nana was made it so much worse. I felt horrible!

As I got a bit older, cancer and cancer prevention became something we were able to talk about. I always felt there was more of a risk for me and I never wanted that kind of surgery to happen to me or anyone else for that matter.

I am not perfect, I try to eat healthy, natural, whole foods most of the time, for many years since I had a choice I have actively worked to get chemicals out of my life as much as possible.

So there it is. My Finally Natural Deodorant that Works! (really does) has NO bad stuff! My Tooth Fairy Dental Cleaning Powder….also NO bad stuff!…..and all of the other products that I make. I use them myself so they have to be good!

There is science behind why our Lavender Rose Sugar Scrub is FABULOUS!

Yes, there is science to back this up. Our Lavender/Rose Sugar Scrub makes a great gift for yourself or a loved one!

Exfoliate and at the same time let these all natural and luscious oils moisturize and feed your skin.

Sugar is a natural humectant, meaning it draws moisture from the environment into the skin. Sugar is a natural source of Glycolic acid, an Alpha Hydroxy Acid (aha) that penetrates the skin and breaks down the “glue” that bonds skin cells. This process encourages faster cell turnover and provides fresher, younger looking skin!

Just use a little each time, works on face, hands, legs….wherever you feel a bit of pampering is needed.

Product is 8 full ounces with a sweet little real wooden spoon.
