Spring Sesaonal Sampler of Essential Oils

tulipsAndrew and I just spent time putting together our Spring Seasonal Samplers.  I feel so happy about this product. It is such a beautiful  box of wonderfulness!

Our seasonal samplers are a perfect way to get to know essential oils and their uses. They come with a selection of 12 samples of our aromatherapy and essential oil products.  This sampler highlights products that are cohesive with Spring.

Spring is traditionally a time for letting go of old habits and emotions and moving forward with new growth.   From spring-cleaning of our homes to clearing out the cobwebs of our minds and hearts, spring is all about freshness, revitalization, and a burgeoning of the earth’s spring.sampler.boxlife force.  I will be blogging throughout the spring about the healing properties of these products, reflective practices that are supported by their use, and ways to move through your life with conscious intention.

If you want to follow along with me and have the essential oil or aromatherapy item I am blogging about that week, then I invite you to purchase the sampler now so you are ready when we begin on the spring equinox.

In the healing circle, spring is represented by the color yellow.  The Spring sampler comes in one of our beautiful saffron lokta boxes.

Lokta Boxes

Our boxes and pboxes4aper are handmade in Nepal, primarily by women, according to traditional methods from the sustainable pruning and trimming of the lokta bush. Lokta is only found above 6500 ft. in the Himalayan mountains. Gathering the trimmings of raw lokta is a cottage industry, which employs many men and women and helps to improve the standard of living in the impoverished rural areas of Nepal. The paper is of fine texture, strong, and very versatile. It will last for centuries. The boxes and paper are Tree-Free and Fair Trade. The Nepalese Paper Company donates a portion of every sale to SEEDS, a grassroots non-profit, that provides relief to Nepal’s poorest rural villages.
