Oh, gads. We're going to be at the Downtown Des Moines farmer's market tomorrow - and the weather forecast is a predicted 70% chance of heavy rains.

Sounds like we're gonna get wet!

Anyway, we'll be there, so if anyone wants to pick up any items in particular, please call or email us before 5PM today, and we'll bring them along!!!

More new pictures, for our new picture project. I really love this picture of our body scrubs.

Also, I really love our salt scrubs. Both Donna and I are a huge fan of the salt scrubs (LOVE that extra scrubby action), but my sister prefers the salt scrubs. It's just personal preference.

We distilled the fresh lavender (see post below). Can i just say - WOW?! We used fresh, locally grown lavender - "fat spike" variety. I cut off all the stems, and just put the flowering tops in the still. It is AMAZING hydrosol!! Really strong, with lots of essential oil, and a fantastic scent.

We got about a third of a gallon of this amazing hydrosol. I have put it on our website; if you're interested in ordering some, go to our hydrosols page. Lavender hydrosol is good for just about everything! It would make a fantastic facial toner, sheet spray, or disinfecting wash for scrapes and cuts. It helps repel insects, and would be great on pet bedding.

and you KNOW i'm gonna try some in an aloholic beverage. I'll let you know what I come up with. :)

Sample sunday yesterday was FANTASTIC! Thanks to all of you that showed up. I hope you had as much fun as we did!!

We are in the process (it will take a while; please be patient) of updating all our product photos. Last year we spent a lot of time redesigning and re-doing all our labels, and a few containers, to streamline the process for us, and to make things more identifiable to you (hopefully). We have not yet gotten our website photos to reflect our new "look", and are working on that now! The above picture, of our body powders (which are now on sale, by the way) is one of the new photos. What do you think?
