The November/December 2009 Issue

We had one of our soap marathons this afternoon, and in the course of conversation discussed the fact that we always let our product speak for itself. The other day a wholesale customer was asking us about some wild claims they'd heard about some other soaps, and wanted our opinions. It started us thinking that we just don't have the proper bragging genes. The soap is good, we say... try it and you'll see, and we leave it at that.

Now I'm realizing that I do all of the writers who contribute to TEH a disservice by not making more noise about what a really terrific magazine this is. Looking for a good read? Want to learn about all the different ways herbs can enhance your life? One of the things we hear the most is that the magazine makes people feel like they can do it too! Each page has something that will make you think, make you want to try it, or make you need to grow it! The magazine is inspiring and instructive, making herbs accessible to everyone. That is our goal, and with the help of our contributors, it is met every single issue. If you aren't familiar with the magazine, read the on-line sample that you can download on the sidebar (or HERE if you're on a feed)!!!Here's what we have for you in this issue:
