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.

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.

Top 3 Reasons to Switch your Deodorant Now!

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.
