Happy Spring!!!

Our friend Tina at the Essential Herbal Magazine has offered a FREE downloadable PDF of her very GREEN issue focusing on a more self-sufficient lifestyle. As she says "In honor of the first day of spring and the White House putting in an herb and vegetable garden, we put up a new
free issue - the one we did last year that focused on green living with a collage of Victory Garden posters on the cover. The Essential Herbal is not an on-line magazine. This one sold out, so we put it up here for you to check out!"

Click here to download this great issue - guaranteed to get you thinking "green" thoughts for spring.

This week's Friday Freebie is a set of 3 of our solid perfumes (your choice of scents). These are a fun and affordable way to enjoy a variety of scents. I like to mix them, myself.... a bit of patchouli and hint of lavender....ylang-ylang and rose... you can have a different combo every day if you like.

If you'd like to win a set of 3 of these perfumes - you must leave a comment on today's blog post.

1) One entry per person.
2) You must have a registered ID to post - if your post shows up under "anonymous", we don't know who you are, and therefore you can't win.
3) You have until the next Thursday at midnight, CST, to enter your comment.
4) Winner will be announced the following Friday - you must check back to see if it's you!
5) International folks are welcome. We ship Prairieland Herbs items all over the world, so we'll ship our "Friday freebie" anywhere too!
6) Each eligible post will be assigned a number, and we'll use a free online random number generator to determine the winner.

And for those of you that don't know - our most excellent buds at carry two custom scents of our perfume - they're the only vendors in the world to have our "Patchouli Soul" and "Patchouli Flower" solid perfumes. If you're a patchouli fan, you must check them out!

I won!! I "follow" my cool friend (and owner of The Soap Dish - an amazing soapmaking supply company) Rebecca on Twitter - she always posts information and interesting info on green packaging and living. And as a bonus, every Friday she does a fun giveaway from people on Twitter. I was lucky enough to win this great book - Smart Soapmaking. It wasn't one I'd read before - but now I'm glad it's on my bookshelf. It's down-to-earth, no-nonsense, and packed with useful and practical info. My favorite part? It's international! measurements are given in both metric and "customary", AND has an interernational list of suppliers. Brilliant, and long-overdue.

So, in short, check out this great book, and follow Rebecca on'll learn alot and have a chance to win some cool stuff too!
