So GMO's...

Genetically modified organisms (GM foods) are unfortunately a common part of life now days. They're actually listed as pesticides with the Environmental Protection Agency, and fail to meet allergy health screening through World Health Organizations standards. It's not like it would say GM on the label, actually natural foods that are not GM'd will usually say so on the label. Should it not be the reverse? Governments and especially biotech companies are good at keeping information away from the mainstream, and further from our awareness. So we wanted to share just a few FACTS:
-when genetically modified soy flour was given to female rats, the majority of their babies died within 3 weeks and for those that did survive, they were smaller and suffered from fertility problems. Male rats experienced testicular discoloration and damaged sperm cells, therefore fewer offspring, and smaller babies. Farmers themselves have commonly reported fertility issues with their livestock.

We've been creating natural & handmade goodies for years, but this is the first time we've offered Linen Spray. Yup, our Lovely Lavender spray will make your home fresh without any chemicals!

So if you're in need of some natural freshness around your home or cottage, or looking for a unique gift or housewarming idea, try our spray, we know you'll love it!

Happy Spring!

Herbs are low maintenance and are relatively easy to grow because of their resistance to pests and drought. Of course growing them indoors causes it to be a bit more difficult, but you can move them outside as soon as they're ready and the ground is too! They say sage, bay leaf, chives, lemon verbena, basil and oregano are the best varieties to try. Also mint, ginger, parsley, and cilantro aren't far behind.
We use only organic locally grown herbs in our products, including lavender, and a variety of mints!
