Be Kind To Cows – Our Eclectic and Whimsical Side is peering out!

Hi Everyone,

Thistle Hill Botanicals is ALIVE and well! We are in more stores and our clients are ordering more of our products all of the time.  I LOVE making natural products and offering them to people who appreciate them. So I will now explain the title: Be Kind to Cows

There is an artistic side of me that has been quelled for a while.  I used to be into photography in a huge way.  My photog has simmered on the back burner long enough! I am now finding different ways to express this side and ways to share it with you.

Here is an example of what I am talking about: http://amzn.to/2tsCNyC   

This link will take you to a T shirt design with one of my favorite cow photos!  Meet Miss Red 🙂

Here at Thistle Hill Botanicals our shop is on the border of a 120 acre pasture.  I Often get to take walks with the “girls” in the pasture.  They are curious and gentle.  We enjoy our time together.  So if you like cows, if you are a vegan or vegetarian, or just animal lover, please check out the link and share it with your like minded friends.

Here are a few of the other shirt links available at this time:  LIFE IS A BEACH! http://amzn.to/2oUzfR3

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 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 [email protected]

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.

Thank you to The Jacksonville Center for the Arts!

Here in Floyd in the lovely Blue Ridge Mountains we are so very lucky to have a wonderful art center.

http://www.jacksonvillecenter.org   The Jax as us locals call it, in cooperation with The Economic Development Authority has built a state of the art photo lab for local artisans and producers to use!   So you will notice we are upgrading our photos a few at a time here at Thistle Hill Botanicals.

So Thank you to the JAX and the EDA of Floyd County Virginia!

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.
