We are open for the Gateway to the Olympics Expo
Normally we are not open on Sundays but today is special as it is the second day of the Gateway to the Olympics Expo. There are a lot of really great vendors here along with other shops that are open today.
Sample tea of the day
We always love coming up with inventive combinations for our sample tea of the day. Today we combined Darjeeling, Rosebuds, Galangal, and Stevia for a crisp and refreshing tea.
We have all the herbs and spices to make this and many more combinations. We recently started carrying press and seal tea bags that you can fill up and seal with an iron, we use a mini hair straightener, If you don’t want to assemble them yourself we would be happy to fill and seal the bags with your choice of teas, herbs, and spices.
Tippy the Owl
Have you read this great children’s book from Erica Corban? This is a wonderful story with a great lesson and fantastiillustrationsns.
This book makes a great anytime gift for parents and little ones alike. We only have four copies on our shelf but will definitely be ordering more once these are sold.
Beeswax candles from Gathered Sunlight
Yesterday we lit one of the small votive candles from Gathered Sunlight that we carry. This little candle provided such a wonderful atmosphere in our store and it burned for over seven hours, we were told that this is longer than most emergency candles that are full chemicals.
We have a wide variety of candles and you don’t have to light them if you don’t want to.
Bulk Lotions and Sunscreen
We have been moving our lotions and other products into bulk dispensing containers to help reduce the waste going into our landfills and allow you to bring in your own favorite container and fill it up, though we ask that you allow us to fill it for you.
We have our Nude and Bay Breeze lotions available right now. Nude is just our lotion base with no scents added but does have a slight chocolate note from the cocoa butter we use. Bay Breeze harnesses tangerine and laurel bay essential oils for this brisk scent that is very reminiscent of the ocean.
All of our lotions are created from scratch by us using high-quality oils and additives. We never use harsh synthetic chemicals, petroleum by-products, and toxic preservatives.
Have you seen the reports about chemical sunscreens and how they are killing off the coral reefs in Hawaii? The toxic chemical laden sunscreens that you get off the shelf are the reason we created our own using oils that have natural SPF value as well as a touch of zinc oxide that provides a mineral sunblock as well.
We also have our sunscreen with bug repellent in it that we call Sunny Day Skeeter Salve. We tested this at multiple locations to make sure it had great sun protection and repels insects.
