Good friends


I woke up this morning to my alarm reminding me that I’m supposed to write something today. I didn’t know what to write about honestly. I’ve not had much gardening going on because of Jubilee but I’m supposed to be proclaiming the JOY of my jubilee! So here are some things I’m grateful for. Time with my family, diving deeper in my trust of the Lord and good friends.  Today I’m going to tell you about good friends.

Every experienced gardener will tell you some plants like it around certain other plants. I’ve heard it said that carrots love tomatoes. Why? Is it because tomatoes are the best kind of person, I mean plant, out there? Heavens no. Tomatoes have something carrots don’t and vice versa. You might think your attracted to people who share your same interests but actually your attracted to people who bring out something in YOU no one else can. Your attracted to a behavior or attitude YOU don’t possess. This is the same with companion planting.

It works because it shows we need each other. Jesus says; And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works: Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching. He also says; Two are better than one; because they have a good reward for their labour. For if they fall, the one will lift up his fellow: but woe to him that is alone when he falleth; for he hath not another to help him up. Again, if two lie together, then they have heat: but how can one be warm aloneAnd if one prevail against him, two shall withstand him; and a threefold cord is not quickly broken.

My friends, learn from companion planting. Don’t over think it just try it. You might learn that a good friend is harder to find than you thought but worth the effort to keep.


Muscle Rub

Muscle Rub Picture

We make our muscle rub with the same base ingredients as our lotion bars and lip balm. However, the essential oil we added is a mega-pack of muscle love. We get it from DoTerra Essential Oil company and it is called Deep Blue.

“The Wintergreen, Camphor, Peppermint, Blue Tansy, German Chamomile, Helichrysum, and Osmanthus found in Deep Blue products work together as the perfect soothing blend. The comforting effects can be felt immediately. Apply before and after exercise or after a long day of hard work.” Is what DoTerra has to say about this oil and we agree.

DoTerra’s Deep Blue is intense and must be diluted for application.  Therefore, we added it to our lotion bar as a win win skin and muscle combo!

If you’d like to try it or have tried it and would like another, please email, text, or call!

20160302_095133We make our lip balm and lotion bars with the exact same ingredients. We chose olive oil, shea butter, beeswax and essential oil. We chose these for multiple reasons.

Olive oil is the what Jesus chose to be a physical representative of His Holy Spirit. I don’t have to do the homework any further than that to understand it is a wonderful product. However, for those that may want to know, I did some good old fashioned research.

Olive oil has proven to heals burns faster, speed wound healing, reduce inflammation, erase stretch marks, reduce muscle fatigue, improve the strength and flexibility of the skin, provide a natural sun protection, and produce silky smooth skin.  This list is just the topical advantages, the internal is just as long a list!

Shea butter we chose for many of the same effectual reasons.  It contains high amounts of vitamin A and E and K and F. These vitamins do wonders for skin. Shea Institute says “Because Shea Butter has such a large healing fraction, in addition to moisturizing fraction, regular use of this natural cream can treat many skin problems, including blemishes, wrinkles, itching, sunburns, small skin wounds, eczema, skin allergies, insect bites, frost bite, and other skin ailments.

Beeswax is both a base and a skin enhancing product. Beeswax contains natural emulsifiers, which help retain moisture in the skin. Beeswax is formed almost entirely of fatty acids and chain alcohol which produce properties that make beeswax key for maintaining skin texture and health. The ability to keep moisture in the skin and the high vitamin A content stimulate the production of skin cells while keeping the skin insulated from environmental dangers.

There are many other combinations that can make a great skin product. We don’t deny this, we have just chosen these three to work with. We keep is simple. I asked the Lord why simple works and He said because salvation is simple. We don’t need complicated rules to ask Jesus to save us, though when we do believe we are compelled to live righteous, holy lives dedicated to Him. The results to living a life with Jesus as Lord are felt inside and shine on the outside!

We hope you have enjoyed our skin care as much as we have.
