Hydrosols + The Essence of Plants

HI,Before I introduce Rose Geranium Hydrosol I'd like to share something I was reminded of while listening to a podcast by Dr. Wayne Dwyer on his being “mindful” while pouring Maple Syrup.While pouring the syrup Dr. Dwyer paused for a moment to consider that long ago, perhaps over 100 years, a seed fell to the ground and many years later that seed became a tree and down the line someone figured out how to “tap” the tree to extract its sap and voila!

Tangled and Beautiful

No promotions … just sharing something lovely to keep close to heart: We are not designed to be smooth or flawless. We are masterpieces of imperfect skin, offset teeth, shadows under our eyes, unruly heads of hair, scarred knees, collections of crookedness.

(Author unknown) Warm regards and by all means, stay tangled and beautiful! Elise Muller, Proprietor / Artisan / Tangled mess www.mountain-spirit-botanicals.com

Age Gracefully

I hope this finds you well and enjoying the “care-free” days of summer and with grace, you've found a cold mountain stream or salty ocean to frolic in. Surely the best of times …A few “hidden treasures” (not best sellers) in my product line are my personal favorites and I wanted you to have access to a gem at a deeply discounted price this month so you also may enjoy the benefits of Carrot Seed Replenishing Oil - my response to the numerous requests “do you have an anti-aging formula” and as stated, “we can't anti-age but we can age...
