Happy Freebie Friday!!!

Last week's winner of our awesome Natural Laundry Gift Set is Melissa aka LbFool! Melissa, drop us an email at shop at prairielandherbs dot com and let us know what scent you'd like!

This week - a little gift for all the hardworking gardeners. We're offering 1 - 2 oz. jar and 2 - 1/2 oz jars of our "Green Thumb Gardener's Salve". Perfect for soothing garden-rough hands and feet, and healing any little nicks and scrapes (or massive scratches like we get when pruning the roses). Also? the scent of this stuff keeps the bugs away. You really can't go wrong.

If you'd like to win one of these, simply leave a comment on this 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.

We've FINALLY distilling again! Oh, how I miss our still during the wintertime. It really excites the alchemist in me to turn fresh water and herbs into gorgeous lush yummy hydrosols. So we'll be updating the website regularly as hydrosols come back in stock!

Comfrey Hydrosol is back in stock - it's wonderful for sunburn, as a facial toner for dry, irritated or mature skin,rashes or skin irritations of any sort, and we find it invaluable for pet care (wound care, ear cleaning etc).

ALSO! For the next 5 days, enjoy $5 flat rate shipping on all US and Canadian orders! (Orders over $100 ship for free, as always!) Flat Rate Shipping good through June 15th.

Happy Shopping!
