Will post again in another week of using the face oil so that you can see the difference
I was wrong. Here is what I need more of.. knuckle rub x2

Taking the morning off. I’ll post up in the story when I’m back in business.
.
Some days #momlife and #bosslife just don’t mix. And on those days I go to @spanishstreetfarmacy to soak up the simple life; my world will right itself once I’ve some chicken soup in my belly.

Head coverings are pretty universal. From yarmulkes to baseball caps, every culture and religious system has an idea about how and why we should cover our heads.
.
If you look closely you start to see some common themes:
✨Protect Your Energy
✨Remind you of the presence of God
✨Protect you from Wind/Cold
✨Modesty
.
Whatever reason you choose (fashion included 😉) we are here to help you out!
.
Our bandanas are the perfect size for head wrapping and ear covering (my personal go to), and our silk scarves are everything from style protection to hijab.
.
So if you feel called to cover that noggin, swing by from 10-6 and shop the lovelies 💕

This item does not ship well this time of year—it loses its texture.
.

They’ve arrived!!
.
There are a lot of things I hate about shaving, but the endless waste is probably the biggest one!
.
I’ve found us a company that produces a beautiful, #plasticfree razor! And to totally round out the #zerowaste aspect, I’ll be providing a storage bag for your used blades that you can bring by the store for me to send off for #recycling 🥰
.
Razors are $30 each, come with five blades, and come in 3 colors—Rose Gold, Teal, and Mint ✨
.
Limited supply, so don’t wait—these will go FAST!

Well yesterday was a weird day! I lost a fundamental herb display shelf and there are about 15 herbs that are without a permanent home in the store…
.
So to reduce my storage burden I am offering 25% off on all of those herbs PLUS giving away an ounce of Krishna Holy Basil and Western Red Cedar to anyone who comes in the door ✨
.
Please come by and help me out. And stock those Home Apothecaries!!!!
.
P.S. please bring jars!!! I am running low on bags 😁

Shampoo and Conditioner Bars are IN!!!
.
Pretty labels are coming, but let’s face it—they’re even MORE EcoFriendly without them 🤗🤗
.
Several months back I asked the @littleantsoapco to make a dream of mine come true—to make a #lowwaste #organic #packagingfree shampoo and conditioner set. We got as close as we could to packaging free—the conditioner bars come in a recyclable (and reusable) aluminum container.
.
The ingredients are Organic and Vegan Friendly.
.
And. They. Work.
.
Two Scents:
✨Rose Patchoulli—it’s Volumizing and Feminine in smell—my FAVE!!
✨Rosemary Lemongrass—it’s Cleansing and Fresh Smelling 🍃
.
OH—did I mention they carry the extra benefits of Apple Cider Vinegar??? They do!
.
So a shoutout to our Mad Scientist for doing what I can’t even fathom and making it AMAZING!!
.
Stop by to check the scents and make the switch today from 10-6. ✨✨✨

We all want to do better. Less waste, less consumption, less spending on crap.
.
Where do we even start though?? It’s overwhelming, those first few looks at how you’re doing compared with where you want to be.
.
As with all things, I say start small. Make a swap to one reusable product per month.
.
These Reusable Hemp/Cotton Rounds are the perfect swap—and our beauty routines are notoriously wasteful.
.
In this box:
✨10 Organic Hemp/Cotton Washable facial Rounds
✨1 Mesh Cotton Laundry Bag
.
You’ll save 400-1200 disposable rounds per year—recouping your $15 investment in less than 6 months and you won’t have to replace them for at least a few years. And when you do—just throw the old ones on the compost 🤗 they’re 💯 biodegradable ♥️
