Stone of the Week: Script Stone!

DSC_0004 (5)This stone has had a myriad of names through the ages. Known as Script Stone, Sea Fossil Jasper, Coquina Jasper, Cobra Jasper and Elephant Skin Jasper just to name a few! This stone is often found in India and is simply stunning to look at!

Like all jaspers, it has a protective and stabilizing effect. It helps to relax and restore energies. This stone has strong connections with the lower chakras and physical body, helping to rejuvenate and recover. The striations on the stone look almost like script. This is an excellent stone for anyone involved in academic pursuits or who just needs clarity in a situation. This is a wonderful stone for people struggling to find solutions to difficult problems – especially for people under stress which is manifesting as physical fatigue. Keep it close to your bed or work area for it to do its best work!

  • Promotes Physical Healing and Restoration
  • Promotes Clarity and insight
  • Aids those who have difficulty putting thoughts into words or actions.

You can come into the shop to choose your piece or get it online here!

Soothing After-sun Spray Recipe!

During the summer, the best thing we can do to stay healthy is watch our sun exposure.  Always wear good sunscreen! But even when we take precautions, we can end up with a little sun burn! This soothing spray can help take the bite out of a nasty sunburn! And the best thing is you can make it at home, yourself!

Recipe:

4 oz Organic Witch Hazel Extract
2 oz Calendula Oil
2 oz Aloe Vera Oil
10 drops Lavender EO
10 Drops Peppermint EO
8oz Spray Bottle!

Blend well and spray! The spray may feel a little sticky at first, but it will get better once it dries and should be very soothing! Enjoy!

Homemade Flea Powder for your Pets!

Summer is coming and this is the worst time of year for fleas! Flea treatments are full of chemicals and can be very expensive! Here is our recipe for a powder you can make yourself and have your best friend be healthy and flea-free!

Ingredients:

1 cup Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth
1/2 cup Neem Powder
1/2 cup Yarrow Powder
20 Drops Eucalyptus EO (Leave out for cats)

Directions

  1. Mix all ingredients together well
  2. Put in a shaker top container (You can make one by drilling holes in a mason jar container)
  3. Apply from head to tail – make sure your pet is NOT WET!  Brush your pets in the opposite direction to make sure that the powder gets deep into the fur.
  4. Avoid eyes and nose – rub powder into belly and other areas that have no fur.  Try to get the powder in as much of the skin as possible without getting it close to mucus tissue.  Avoid any wound areas!
  5. The area at the base of the tail is where fleas love to stay – make sure you get lots of powder into that area!
  6. Use about once a month to avoid an infestation.  If you give your pet a bath you will need to re-apply.
  7. If you have an infestation apply every other day until the fleas are gone.  Make sure you apply the powder to your floors and furniture as well where they like to lay the eggs.

This powder works well, but if you have an infestation, be aware that it will not work overnight.  You must keep at it – sometimes for 4-6 weeks to be rid of it completely.  You must be diligent!

New Things for April!

We are so thrilled to be able to carry more and more unique items in the shop! This month we have two fantastic items by self-published artists!

A Cauldron full of Tails and Such

By Debra  Sunshine Hillman!

Here are twenty four short “new folk tales,” with folk tale characters like hags, crones, fae, women alone or misunderstood or unhappy, a dreaming girl, and women seeking inspiration. In each short tale the character either finds a new way to see her world and life, or cannot.  Each story suggests a situation and how it might change through thinking in a way that celebrates “woman” and does not see her as a lesser human, subject to traditional lives or prejudices.  A charming collection of imaginative stories, bound to make you reach for your true self in spite of what the world says for you. Written by a woman who has found her niche, helping other women find themselves! Plus the author is local to the Carolinas! We have 4 more signed copies left – so some get yours today!
