Mint is the refreshing savior during the HOT months of Summer!

It truly IS a savior to a HOT summers day! The mint I grow here on our farm is : Spearmint, Peppermint & Lemon Balm. Which the latter is not a TRUE mint, but of the mint family.

Peppermint from the Garden

Combining these beauties has created a wonderfully refreshing beverage I encourage EVERYONE to drink, especially during the hot summertime! I have made it available in BULK here on my website if you would like to try some for yourself!

Here are some of the great benefits of Mint!

♦It helps clear up congestion of nose, throat & lungs. This would be a helpful addition if you have allergies!

♦It helps inhibit the release of histamines that produce an allergic response from allergies.

♦It is a great remedy for indigestion! That is why when you go to a restaurant they offer you a “mint” after dinner:)

♦It is a natural stimulant that relieves stress and fatigue!

So get some water boiling to make up a brew! You CAN make it in a quart jar, steep, then put in the fridge to cool down, OR add ice to enjoy cold!

What would YOU use my Trio Mint tea for? Do you like mint? Why or why not?

You have heard of Lavender, but do you know about these benefits this violet herb has?

Yes, we all have heard of Lavender, or I thought everyone has! This is the time of year that my Lavender starts to finish up and needs to be harvested for use!

I have written some posts on how I use Lavender in my Lavender Chamomile Tea, and how the essential Oil can help you with a highlight on my products that I use the essential oil in!

So you probably have a good idea about it with the information I have provided. A few that may have been missed is the additional uses that I have not mentioned!

It is a GREAT anti-inflammatory and is one of the very FEW essential oils that is safe for ALL members of the family, babies included! You can rub some of my Organic Lavender lotion on your babies belly if it is upset. It also helps to encourage hair growth and seal split ends, which is a great feature in my Organic Hair Gel! I have found this to be true as the summertime winds wreck havoc on my long hair!

It has also helped me to relax when things get stressful. A little rub of some Organic Lavender Lotion helps ease my mood and calm my nerves! I also rub the lotion on my husband’s back after a long day at work to help relieve inflammation!

I look forward to sharing more of my herbs with you as they become harvestable and matching these up with the products I offer with them in it!

Remembering Father’s Day & Celebrating Dad with a Limited Edition Gift Set!

Each year around Father’s day I feel excited and proud to have had the Dad I had growing up! He taught me to work hard, never sleep past 8am, have great work ethic and how to market my talents!

He woke up at 4am every day and drove 1.5 hrs to his job in the city. This showed me how to be on time and “SHOW UP” for life! He also had a knack for finding old cars and restoring them to their original beauty, seeing the possibility in an item when the outside looked hopeless. My imagination and ingenuity I garnered from him rang true when we were out in the countryside, or fishing in the summer.

Although our relationship has not turned out as I truly WANTED it to, I can still take a hard look at what he taught me good AND bad! We all have people in our life that we learn something from, all of our life events help shape our character.

I wanted to celebrate Father’s from all walks of life, and all of the positive traits we can find in ourselves that we were taught from them!

For a LIMITED TIME ONLY, I am offering a special Father’s Day Gift Set for $24.99
