Feeling the Winter Blahs?

Is anyone else starting to get tired of the cold, snow and winter? Spring is just a mere three weeks away but the weight of winter has us still singing the blues. Well we've decided to take matters into our own hands...and we've got just the thing to warm you up, give you balance, and keep those nasty flu bugs at bay.

There is no denying it has been a long, cold winter. Which gives us even more reason to make time for self care, find balance in our days and make efforts to keep our energy up. We believe: “Wellness is a connection of paths: knowledge and action.” Joshua Welch. What do you think? Can you make choices to better honour yourself?

One thing that keeps us going through the Winter months is creating products that support living a healthy lifestyle. Hearing your feedback and seeing you thriving is something that makes us very happy. So on that note, we carefully selected some products to feature to combat the winter blahs and enlighten your soul till the spring sunshine comes our way.

Back to Earth Relaxation Products

Tranquility Bath Salts is a fairly new product to hit our online store, but has been a local favourite sold in our Lavington shop for quite some time. The 100% pure essential oils of lavender, chamomile, tangerine and geranium will promote a relaxed state of mind while the goodness of BC Glacial Clay, Himalayan pink salt and Solar salt will pamper your skin, joints, and improve circulation. Slide into a bath tub of Back to Earth Tranquility salted water and you will quickly forget about winter and melt away all the other things that have been getting you down.

One of our top selling oils, which we shared earlier this month, is one we definitely feel is worthy of highlighting again. Balance Synergy Oil Blend is a blend of 100% pure essential oils of lavender, ylang ylang, geranium, sandalwood, and blue tansy, which brings a natural sense of calming to your system. The Balance Blend is so versatile and light everyone will enjoy it. Diffuse at home, your desk, or in the car and breathe deeply when you need to refocus. You can also add a few drops to your bath water, favourite lotion or inhale directly from your cupped palms when you really want to get grounded. Many enjoy its scent prior to a yoga class or when the anxiety of life starts to build. The aroma combined with some concentrated deep breaths can work wonders.

Despite all your efforts to stay healthy sometimes there are just so many nasty bugs circulating you have to take extra efforts to guard against. The Back to Earth Immune Support Tea Blend is a flavourful and soothing tea you can sip anytime. Steep a big pot in the morning and you can even enjoy it at room temperature or chilled later in the day. A dollop of local unpasteurized honey or a slice of organic lemon makes it even healthier! The aromas and flavours of wintergreen, cinnamon, cloves, chamomile, orange peel, raspberry leaf, peppermint, star anise, rosehips, ginger, echinacea, pau d' Arco bark, elderberries, fennel from this concoction will strengthen and support your resistance year round.

Over the next three weeks, try taking three steps towards your own self care needs as we enter into March. Besides trying our beautifully handcrafted products we featured today, try things like meditation, more sleep, saying no to some things you fell obligated to but are dreading, spend more time outdoors, or at a yoga or pilates class, watch a soul soothing film, go to some live music or a poetry reading...the possibilities are endless. Make choices and commitments to things that get you excited and see how much more refreshed and renewed you start feeling as spring starts to emerge.

- Love and Light
