Natural Bug Spray & Yoga Mat Spray

On this very hot Pennsylvania Summer Solstice, I present to you 2 of my newer products:

Natural Bug Spray  ~ Made with Essential Oils that repel flying insects, mosquitos, fleas, ticks, and even lice!  Great for yourself and your furry friend (just place it where they can't lick it.)  Spray from 8-10" away on skin or clothing... just remember to spot check to avoid stains. This is a must have for BBQs and 4th of July Fireworks!

Yoga Mat Spray ~ Made with anti-bacterial, anti-microbial, and disinfecting Essential Oils.  A lovely citrus scent with a hint of lavender to maintain a calm yet refreshed state of mind.

You can purchase these at the Lansdowne Farmers Market at my table every 2nd & 4th Saturday through November 17, or at my Etsy Shop.

Fall/Winter 2012 Line

I am pleased to announce that I will be implementing seasonal lines for all of my products.  I will keep a select few products available all year long, those products will be listed soon.  Otherwise my products will change with the seasons they are associated with, for example the Spring Laundry perfume oil and room spray/body spritz will be available March-September, Farmer's daughter will be available April-October, etc.  This will leave room for more amazing scents & flavors to keep it fresh as the wheel of the year turns! 

Check out my Etsy shop for end of the season sales, I will also post those sales here... along with special coupon codes for my blog readers!
