People are commonly confused when they read tincture directions suggesting they take a "dropperful" or two of a tincture. When they squeeze the bulb on the droppertop, they are surprised to see that it fills the glass tube only a little bit of the way. They try to squeeze harder to try to fill it completely, but it never works. This is why:
To follow the theme begun last month, this month's special is pregnancy-related. Hopefully the herbs for fertility and pre-conception that were on special for last month have worked already, and you are now in need of some pregnancy herbs! (In reality, it can take some time for these fertility herbs to work, so if they haven't for you by now, not to worry! That is totally normal. Keep going with them, as the longer you use them, the better they work.)
We've been hearing from so many people that they're having a really hard time sleeping these days, especially since the recent time change. We were planning to offer these items next month, but in light of the current need, we are doing it now as a special sale - our herbs for sleep and relaxation at 20% off. Here's what's on the special:
I know this is longer than my usual blog post, but please bear with me - it has some very important information for you that you will want to see, especially a point made at the end.
Its been a hard-hitting season for illness and these herbs and this information will help. (Note: do not hesitate to seek medical help if necessary. Sometimes the herbs are enough to do it, but sometimes its necessary and appropriate to take more aggressive steps through your doctor or urgent care. The flu can be serious - don't let it get out of hand. Seek medical help if needed.)
Here's what we're offering at a 20% discount as a special sale:
December can sure be a fun, yet stressful and very busy month. In light of this, we are offering our herbal products for stress, relaxation, insomnia, and depression at 20% off all month! These include:
Goodnight Combo Tincture - helps one fall asleep, stay asleep and quiets mental chatter. Contains Valerian Root as one of its ingredients. This is one of our most popular products.
Goodnight Lite Tincture - this is the same tincture as above, but with Chamomile instead of Valerian Root. For a very small percentage of the population, Valerian Root can stimulate rather than sedate. Its not common, but we wanted to have an alternative for those few folks. This MORE INFO link will give you details.
First thing - we're pleased to announce that our Quiet Cough Tincture is back! One of the herbs from our original formula (Osha Root, aka Bear Root) became endangered and difficult to get. As we don't ever want to contribute to any herb's endangered status, we opted to eliminate this herb from the mixture and to re-formulate it using Thyme and Elecampane Root. Both are wonderful for the respiratory tract, helping as an expectorant, antibacterial, antiseptic, and antispasmodic. They help in cases of cough from cold or flu, bronchitis, sinusitis, tuburculosis, asthma, whooping cough, and other respiratory issues. Please note that it is NOTsafe or appropriate for pregnant or breastfeeding women, but the herb Mullein is fine for both. Mullein is also one of the herbs featured in the Quiet Cough Formula. I have to say, after going through a little cold this past week, I like our new Quiet Cough Tincture even better than the old blend! It just "feels good" - it felt good in my body (like my body was just absorbing the nutrients and healing properties), it felt good on my sore throat, and it sure helped eliminate my cough. I am VERY happy with this blend!
Well, this month started out a little different than usual! I'm writing this to you from Portland, OR, as I'm here with my "baby" (who just finished her freshman year in college!) who came down with Mono and strep! Yikes! I forgot that that could be a "thing" for college age kids! So I came up as quickly as I could to help take care of her and give her some good mama lovin' and medicine! So this month, in honor of her, and a dear customer request - AND in light that school starts for many kiddos in just a month or so (believe it or not - didn't summer just start?), we're offering our Astragalus, Echinacea, Cold & Flu Tincture, Healing Salve, and Hemorrhoid Salve on special this month.
We're getting a bit of a late start with our special this month but we have many items on special for summer-time use! All of our books, CD's and card sets are on special, as well as some herbal items that we though would be soothing and helpful for summertime heat - that might make one cranky and uncomfortable, whether they are little people or big people.
