Back In The Saddle

Although its been awhile since notice was sent from Mountain Spirit I've continued formulating products (while adding a few new ones) and fulfilling orders; however, the last few months brought another move across country to California + my daughter's wedding + settling home and business amidst the surrounding vistas of the Pacific Coast and considering all that was going on, I was unable to send out consistent updates - which I will now offer on a monthly basis.  As always, if you no longer wish to receive my newsletter you can opt out at the link below.

I've recently discovered the healing qualities of ALOE VERA and I can honestly say, I'm loving this beautiful plant and the healing Aloe provides to our skin and overall well-being.  Below are some facts I've researched along with new the products I've created using this beautiful plant.

Autumn on the wind ...

Although the cooling winds of autumn have yet to hit South Florida (it’s steaming hot, I’d love to be sitting in my beloved mountain stream right now) I find that by exfoliating and polishing my skin, tones and brighten both my skin and spirit. Although it’s hotter than hell right now, I do love tropical environments; they provide mangoes, papaya, guava, lychee, night blooming jasmine, gardenia and glorious sunsets ~ I’ll continue to count my blessings as I await cooler weather. To my cold weather customers I know that you’ll soon be facing some mighty cold weather and the following...
