NEW! Our Favorite Things and What is Hygge?

This is SO exciting! Starting January 2019!  We will be sharing our Favorite Things with our friends and customers at Thistlehillbotanicals.com.

What is Hygge?

People in Denmark are considered to be the happiest people in the world. And that’s where the happiness research institute is located.  A danish word I’ve learned recently is “hygge” (sounds like hoo-ga) . The loose translation for this for this word is a sense of comfort togetherness and well-being. It seems to me that these are the things that make us HAPPY!

Personally in my life I’ve been making an effort to simplify and have less. The remaining things that I choose to surround myself with give me joy.

I hope that the recipients of these products will feel special as I do every time I open up the journal cover to write, or pull out my legal pad, Or happen to notice the pretty tassel on my pocketbook.

These products truly are my favorite things. They are products and things that give me joy and I wish to share them with you.

Write it Down! Journal Writing

Surely you have heard this before, so I will not spend much time on this soapbox. Journal writing is SO healing and therapeutic! One of the best lessons on journaling I ever learned is from Julia Cameron author of The Artist’s Way.  Here it is in her words:

“Morning Pages are three pages of longhand, stream of consciousness writing, done first thing in the morning. *There is no wrong way to do Morning Pages*–they are not high art. They are not even “writing.” They are about anything and everything that crosses your mind– and they are for your eyes only. Morning Pages provoke, clarify, comfort, cajole, prioritize and synchronize the day at hand. Do not over-think Morning Pages: just put three pages of anything on the page…and then do three more pages tomorrow.”

This is one form of journaling, there are others. Consider trying it for at least 28 days (It takes that time to develop a habit)  I use cheap pads for my morning pages, and lovely journals for the more in depth and cohesive journal writing.

Full Service – Gift Wrapping & Cards Too!

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.

STOP Buying Expensive & Toxic Surface Cleaners!

You might have seen this already but it is worth repeating!

Here is a GREAT way to SAVE $$$$ AND get more nasty chemicals out of your life!  Extremely versatile, inexpensive, all-natural, and effective with a low acidity of 5 percent, white vinegar is truly a hard worker and a great value.

This is so EASY AND Effective!

First of all you get to eat and enjoy some oranges, lemons, or limes!  As you peel your citrus save the peels and place them in a canning jar into plain and inexpensive white vinegar.  You will wish to use a quart or half gallon jar with lid.  I let mine sit for at least one week.  The essential oils and wonderful fragrance of the citrus will infuse into the white vinegar.

Then just pull out the peels and pour into a spray bottle and clean until your heart is content!
