Happy New Year

http://sociopants.files.wordpress.com/2009/12/new.jpg
Whether we admit it or not, New Year's signifies transition. Some crave change, and are constantly rearranging life's various elements. Some adore routine, making transition more stressful.

Whatever way you look at it, without sounding cliché, it is an opportunity to start anew...it can be a fresh beginning. That's what we've decided to do here at Babar Too Co. We are excited to bring in and welcome the new year.

We promise to give our all to each and every one of our products and transactions. We aways have of course, but this year with real emphasis on each process in our small operation. Thank you to each of our customers.

Happy 2011.
Love Babar Too

Merry Christmas

11 days out til Christmas. Are you ready? Have you prepared?  Have you enjoyed the ride along the way? Have you remembered the true meaning of Christmas? Are you in the middle of going through all your seasonal traditions, baking that particular cookie, cake, and treat.. we're all about the chocolate this year! Chocolate truffles, dark European chocolate,  and of course the shortbread! Umm and the gingerbread cheesecake.

Ginger is known for its treatment of nausea, including for chemotherapy patients, morning sickness or even seasickness. It is also known to supress coughing and aid in congestion.

The Meaning of Babar - Part 2

Babar...Strong. Ahead of it's Time because it Follows the Past.

              We love using traditional methods of creating our goodies. Our products are all natural & handmade. We love wooden spoons and stainless steel bowls! We don't like plastics or chemicals!

               To us, Babar is symbolic of comfort. Our mascot will remain our loyal teddy whom we've had since before our company's creation! The snuggle bear...yup that's him.

               Babar's Mughal Empire ruled most of South Asia by the late 17th century, and it ended in the mid 19th. It's population estimated at 110 million to 150 million, and over 3 million square kilometers.

Ovaltine has made a comeback in our pantry, winter's definitely coming! With that, comes fabulous Craft shows & markets galore! We're going to go visit One of A Kind Christmas Craft Show this Sunday with friends. Babar Too isn't exhibiting, rather going to enjoy the show, check out some fascinating works of art,  the layout & setup of such an amazing consumer show, & of course the food at One of A Kind Flavors.

Christmas Will Soon Be Upon Us

It's beginning to look like Christmas with main street decorated in pretty winter wreaths & bright blue lights. It's lovely; tonight there was just a skiff of snow. It's been pretty warm which although great for deliveries, seems a bit out of sorts for this time of year. Yet it always feels such a short time ago that it was warm & consistently sunny, just think a month tomorrow... is Christmas Eve.

          Let's embrace this Christmas with excitement! Not rushed but welcomed, & genuinely enjoyed at each stage. With thankfulness realize this incredibly diverse world, & be greatrful for every blessing!         Think.....Plan.....Act.......     Tis the Season!

Simple Ingredients....Mean More Goodness

Ok, so when you're at the grocery store you don't purposely fill up your basket with products that are chalked full of harmful chemicals or carcinogens do you?

We consider ourselves to be pretty savvy shoppers. So why then, our question to you is, are we so quick as a population to throw any old product into our basket when shopping for body products? Body products have ingredients lists too. Those ingredients are easily and quickly absorbed into your skin and in turn, your bloodstream.

Remember that what you purchase is a conscious choice and there are virtually every kind of product you could possibly want to find out there. So have fun, go look for the best, and buy only what you believe in! Remember that organic doesn't mean certified organic, and natural doesn't mean fresh. Also don't be deceived into thinking that just because you use 'quality' as in expensive products you're safe, often they're just as bad on the toxic scale as their cheaper co…

Basking in Summer... in More Ways than One

http://owlsnapper55.wordpress.com/2008/10/21/the-endless-summer/
Yup, we all love the feel of the sun on our face, our bodies, it feels intoxicating, warm, & just plain good!
Here at  Babar Too Co.  we love hot summer days.   For one, it allows our herbs to get nice & dry before being added & blended into our products. Right now our rosebuds are basking away in a basket & our fresh organic mint is starting to look more dehydrated by the hour....Secondly, it's inspiring!
We have to remember that we have the ability to aid our bodies & minds to feel as good as basking in the sun even during the storms... You see, it's all a matter of perspective isn't it! Positive thinking to avoid sounding cliché- try it, you'd be amazed :) ...& may even learn a lesson in humility...

When we're cold, we want to be warmer. When we're hot we want to be cooler....& the list goes on. Let's just take a step back, breathe, & enjoy the moment & it…
