So we asked our Moms what would be the best back to school aromatic aids for little ones, and for the older students, perhaps off to college for the first time. (Yes, that is our youngest grandgirl, with her daddy walking her for the first day.)

Save 10% on retail sizes of: KleenHandz, NoNitz (for unwanted scalp “hitchhikers”), Aloe Vera Gel, and Neroli Hydrosol (still the best solution for butterflies in the tummy). Trauma Oil for the inevitable bumps and bruises on the playground. Michelle says, “I think our Relax blend helps when the kids get home from school, and Sleep Ease (or Happy Dreams ) is a must at night.”

For your older ones, going away to school, a diffuser ? (the AromaStone is the least intrusive.) A Blue Tansy inhaler for new or different seasonal allergens. “ Focus ” for studying. One of our anti-anxiety blends for homesickness (my favorite is Reunité.) FluFoil later on, for winter. Perhaps Moon Days for your daughter? Fresh Aire to keep dorm room and laundry fresh and lift spirits at the same time? Also see the list for the young’uns. We never outgrow the need for KleenHandz!

All products listed above are at 10% discount this month.

Beat the Heat


Nothing cools like mint, so save 10 percent on retail sizes (15 mls) of our Organic Hungarian or our USA produced Peppermint, our brand new Australian Spearmint, Bergamot Mint (not one bit minty!) and, coolest of all, our Corn Mint from Nepal. And ALOE for a cooling carrier… (We are now offering our food grade Aloe Vera Gel in a 16 ounce bulk refill for your convenience.)

New and Back In Stock Products

First, just arrived, the first comprehensive book on the use of my beloved CO2 extracts in Aromatherapy, by Madeleine Kerkhof.

New from Australia: Lavender Hydrosol and Lavender Essential Oil “ Avice Hill ” both from our artisan distiller friend, Chris Burder. His hydrosols and oils must be sniffed to be believed! Also a lovely Australian Spearmint.

Back in Stock Carrier oils… Sesame Oil, Virgin Organic and Squalane, derived from Olive Oil.

Back in Stock CO2 extracts, Juniper CO2 and German Chamomile Select CO2. Love the aroma!

Other hydrosols, new and/or back in stock, all organically produced in the US: Basil, Holy (Tulsi) Hydrosol, Catnip (new to us!) and Monarda (herbalists call it Bee Balm).

Our new shipments of Neroli from Morocco and Rose Hydrosol from Bulgaria came in as this was being written.

Folks, I had hoped for a nice long newsy update all that is going on at Nature’s Gift these days, but there is not enough time. Enjoy the remainder of your summer!
