||Healing Body, Mind, and Spirit with Pure Essential Oils|
Beginning in July of 2004, we started donating a portion of our sales to various charities. Two percent of our sales on every Wednesday for a month are donated to the named charity. Research has been done on each charity to make sure they are legitimate and have the lowest administrative costs possible. Below is a list of the charities that we have donated to, thanks to your orders.
Current charity: We are returning to MOMS — Midwives on Missions of Service for the second quarter charity this year. Their latest crew just returned from another trip to Sierra Leone, and the newsletter about the women they work with just inspired me. I hope you are not tired of helping them... because Nature's Gift isn't. They need all of our help. Read about their most recent trip, and their mission here. You may donate on their page (please tell them you read about them here!) or you can add a donation to your order.

July 2011 – December 2011: Magdalene House/Thistle Farms, is located in Nashville. Since 1997, it has served women who’ve come from backgrounds of violence, addiction, prostitution, and life on the streets. National media have featured their amazing stories of healing and helping women transition from hopelessness to self sufficiency via a supportive and intensive spiritually based residential recovery program. Magdalene was founded not only to help a subculture of women, but also to help change the culture itself. They stand in solidarity with women who are recovering from abuse, addiction, and life on the streets, and who have paid dearly for a culture that still buys and sells women. Magdalene stands as a witness to the truth that in the end, love is more powerful than all the forces that drive women to the streets.
