AND… The Kindle edition of my book “Essential Waters” is on sale this month, as well.
My very favorite Lavender, Avice Hill, from an organic grower/distiller in the US, at a tremendous savings compared to our last tiny batch. (Hint, I bought all she had!) We have not had time to test this batch for you, but past experience shows that Avice Hill is higher in esters (hence more relaxing) than any Lavender we offer. Aromatically? I adore it. It smells a bit spicy, not the familiar lavender aroma, fresh, a bit earthy, a sheer delight. A complex perfume in and of itself, and for a “go to sleep” oil, other than Roman or Cape Chamomile, nothing is more relaxing. ENJOY while it lasts! (If you buy it all, she will plant extra for us next summer… just a subtle hint.) Of course a GC of this new batch is in process, but we flat did not want to wait to make it available to you.
An amazing distilled Ginger Oil from my friend Marco Valuzzi. This one is so extraordinary it’s in our Private Reserve collection. (We only have a little, one of my Chinese wholesale clients bought almost all, so you don’t want to delay.)
A delightful, sparkling Lemongrass, Cymbopogen flexuosos, from Guatemala.

I’m excited, it’s been four years? since I’ve seen her!
I hope you all remember we are partnering with Liz Fulcher, of the Aromatic Wisdom Institute. When she heard our featured products this month were our hydrosols, she suggested the following links.
AWP 015: Five Ways to Use Hydrosols for Allergy Relief
We love being able to share content from such a gifted teacher!
If all this talk about hydrosols confuses you, Ann Harman, master distiller and author of From Harvest to Hydrosol was kind enough to address the issue as a guest blogger.
“ 7 Things You Must Give to Others if you Want to Achieve Success ” This article reverberated with me, perhaps it will with you, as well.
And a bit of sarcasm in a blog about “ Floral Waters.”
Our Clients Say
Randy and his wife posted a “Shopper Approved” review that just blew me away. We are all so grateful to be able to make a difference for people with what we do. Read the full review here. When I wrote to ask if I could share the review, they wrote back,
“Hi Marge, You are very welcome for the review. Yes, of course you may use the review. It is ‘yours’ after all.
“The sleep blends are working beautifully. As are the pain blends. We immediately ordered the 4 oz. size if the FLAMEout a few days later. Randy used the “That’s Better” for his sciatic pain, for his breakthrough pain that first night. It knocked it out in no time. That was a serious success for him. Nothing has touched the pain like your blends have. We are both getting some much needed sleep now. When he hurts, I hurt. When he can’t sleep, I can’t sleep. I have to say, this has been a long time coming.
“Thank you so much, once again. You are our earth angel.”
Aromatic Quote of the Month
“Rise and put on your foliage, and be seen
To come forth, like the springtime, fresh and green.”
