    While supplies last, half price sale on Canadian Juniper Berry (our new supply is in and we want to clear the older stock) and our Happy Morning Synergy and Inhalers, effective for morning sickness, post operative nausea, car sickness. Nurse chosen. We are reformulating and want to clear the current stock.


    We are starting to offer some of our hydrosols and some of our fixed/carrier oils in 16 oz bulk or refill sizes.  We will be rolling these additions out over the next few weeks, so please be patient with us. The new Hydrosols listed above are the first additions.


    We are putting all of our Aromatherapy Accessories on sale, for the month of April, including the new arrivals mentioned above. Save 10% on our diffusers, bottles and jars, aromatherapy jewelry, and more.


    We have emailed all affected clients, but since we’ve not heard back from some we want to make sure that everyone who purchased is notified. We had our recent shipment of Choya Loban (Batch #IN-58569) analyzed, and some discrepancies were discovered during the analysis. Tests show traces of Cedarwood (because the traditional clay still was not properly cleaned after dry distilling a charge of Himalayan Cedarwood) and, more concerning, there were traces of DEP, (diethylphthalate, a solvent and plasticizer.)

    I have spoken to my supplier and believe that the contamination was not deliberate. It appears that plastic buckets were used to capture the choya as it exited the still, and the hot liquid caused plastic to leach into the Choya. Many analysts would not have caught the traces. However, Nature’s Gift works very hard to ensure that we are (for example) using phthalate free plastic in inhalers, and would never knowingly offer a contaminated oil. “Phthalate free” is an important marketing point, and I'm mortified that we have unknowingly made this product available.

    So, what to do? I have contacted some friends who love our Choya, and they’ve chosen to continue using it; they love it and are not concerned. You, however, may feel differently.Because the product was not as described, we are offering all those who purchased the Choya over the past few weeks the option of returning it for a full refund. Please email with the subject line REFUND to arrange for this.

    Thank you for your understanding.


    Lots to write about in March:

Email, with the Subject: TICKET, and tell us why you should be selected to win. Deadline to apply is April 30th. Winner will be announced no later than June 1st.

    Traditionally the individual selected helps us in various ways, including set up and break down of the Nature’s Gift vendor booth. This year the conference is scattered around at different venues on Rutgers campus, and because I have some mobility issues, preference will be given to someone who drives and has a car available to “taxi” us around to each location.

    Let us know why it is important for you to attend this year’s conference. Please no phone calls or private messages. Only emails to:, with the Subject line: Ticket, will be placed into consideration. Expect an announcement in our Newsletter and on our Facebook page when the winner is selected.

    Sharing Forward: Charity of the Quarter

    moms midwives logoPlease continue to give to support the important work being done by Midwives on Missions of Service. Trish Ross and Christi McManus and their team are preparing for another trip Sierra Leone as I type. Because our offer to match your donations for the Nepal disaster relief was so successful, rather than giving a set percentage of our sales, we are going to base our support for MOMS on YOUR support for them. That’s right. We will match every donation you make via our shopping cart.


    “The sun was warm but the wind was chill.
    You know how it is with an April day.
    When the sun is out and the wind is still,
    You’re one month on in the middle of May.
    But if you so much as dare to speak,
    a cloud come over the sunlit arch,
    And wind comes off a frozen peak,
    And you're two months back in the middle of March.”
    —Robert Frost, Two Tramps in Mud Time, 1926

    Hope the April Showers are mostly sunshowers for you!
