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!

The Beeswax and Vegan Controversy

I have been doing a lot of research on beeswax.  Some consider it not vegan and some do. Here is the scoop:  According to Peta many large bee farms treat their Queens inhumanely and take honey away when the bees desperately need it to survive the winter months.
Beeswax is a byproduct of the bees, they are not killed for their beeswax.  There are alternatives, however the most desired ones are made from palm trees.  So I have made an executive decision that here at Thistle Hill Botanicals we would rather use a totally natural and sustainable product rather than contribute to the destruction of the rainforests which is where palm oils and waxes mostly originate from.

Our beeswax comes from a small apiary that educates other beekeepers in the region on proper and sustainable beekeeping.  Our beeswax comes from happy bees that are well cared for and treated with respect.  Beeswax is used in small amounts in some not all of our products.  Let us know if you have any questions.
