It has been a while since I have posted on my blog. I have been busy working on my soaps and my website in preparation for officially launching Backyard Herbals LLC to the World. So far, I have only made my site visible through a Facebook Page and a few personal friends and family members. Now that I am committing myself to sell my soaps, bath soaks, and candles full time it is time to get the word out.
Soap making has brought me much comfort and joy these past few months, during a time when I needed it the most. I am optimistic that with a bit of effort, my hard work will allow me to share my products with others so they too can experience the joy that comes along with them.
I have been working on a few projects while getting ready for my big business launch. You will notice there are more 'collections' to browse on my website. I have added a few gift baskets that allow folks to try a sampling of our products. I have also added the following collections: Positive Affirmation Bars; Amazing Women; and Kits and Baskets. These collections are important to me because I am trying to create a soap that is more than just a daily body cleanser. I want each bar of soap to have meaning and a specific purpose. When making my soap, I am always very careful about the base, essential oils, color, and molds selected because each generates a different type of energy and vibration.
The power of color is inescapable. The spectacular hues have varying effects on the mind. A certain color can soothe the nerves, increase attention, energize and empower action, or bring balance, strength, and healing. Similarly, essential oils can trigger emotional and physical responses within the body. For centuries, civilizations have been drawn to the healing powers of plants. Essential oils don’t just smell great, science shows they also contain properties that make them good remedies for reducing anxiety, reducing pain and inflammation, and promoting energy and healing.
There’s no denying that stress is on the rise as we head into the winter with a continuing pandemic. What better way to relieve some of the toxic effects of stress than with aromatherapy. I want to be clear that I am not a doctor or health care practitioner, nor do I intend to suggest that my products will cure any medical diagnosis. Through my research and 25 years of experience with essential oils, I know the positive effects they have on the mind, body, and spirit. Our Positive Affirmation collection adds the power of positive thinking. It is well known that what we think becomes our truth. Our thoughts drive our feelings and our feelings drive our actions. Each of our positive affirmation bars is designed to enhance the energy of love, confidence, courage, and abundance.
I hope you take the time to browse our online store and find a product that meets the needs of you or your loved ones. We’ve tried to put together collections that provide a little something for everyone.
