July 31, 2009 - Friday Faves, etc.

Hi all! How's the week going? Ready to relax for a few minutes and look around?
Well, first let me tell you that I had a few days off this past week, and I bounced back home relaxed and ready to take on the world again. We went to Atlantic City, where the peaceful beauty of nature meets man-made brightly lit beauty. It is so easy to forget how much we really need to step outside of our routines from time to time to shake out the cobwebs. I had a ball :-).

Now that I got that little giggle out of my system, we'll move on to Willow Way, or The designer of this equipment, Ron Jonas was - along with his wife - a soapmaker himself. He is well aware of the challenges of moving heavy vats of hot oil, how difficult it is to cut uniform bars, and the wonders of keeping oil in a liquid state for ease of use. If during your soapmaking adventures, you've ever let your mind wander to how easy it would be if only someone would make "xxxxx", then check out this site because Ron has already done it. Next up, the all-natural products from Herbal Garden. Marilyn Courtwright has a complete line of bath, beauty, and health products. Her newest soaps look luscious, and she uses mugwort in one line for sleep.
In the mood for a little more fun? Click on over to The Glastonbury Tarot and have a free on-line reading. You choose the cards and ask a question if you'd like. At the end of a long week, it can be almost as good of a pick me up as our "Cuppa Happy" tea!
In fact, all of our new teas are incredible! Stop over at The Essential Herbal to check out all of our products :-).

Happy end of the week to you all!

Great page! Beautiful pictures. I don't remember how I happened on to your page but I am glad that I did.I am working on becoming an herbalist as we speak, 7 months into the course and love every minute of it. I never new how much I didn't know, I guess that I will be a life long student of herbs since... there is just way too much to learn. I have posted some pictures on my blog about some salves that I am making if your interested in taking a look see.
blessing, The HerbanChica!

Glad you had a nice respite. There is nothing like staring at the ocean for little while to get a whole new look out on life! I was lucky enough to sneak down to "The Shore" for 2 days this week, ahhhhh!
