Happy Ending

February 2016 Winter CSA:



Hello Herb Folk!

The final month of the Winter CSA is here. Josh & I sincerely hope you enjoyed being part of our first Winter CSA project!

Please let us know how we did. Was there anything you did or did not absolutely enjoy? Was there anything we could improve upon? Did the products match the cost of the CSA?

This month’s parcel includes:

Bee Hoppy Oxymel

 “Wake Up” Oil

Fines Herbes & Herbes de Provence Blends

Artemisia Smudge Stick

Bay & Bergamot Sugar Scrub

Silky Basil Bar


Bee Hoppy Oxymel

Hops, Valerian Root, Hawthorn Berry, Ginkgo, Wood Betony, Apple Cider Vinegar & Raw Honey

A medicinal to be taken daily to improve focus and balance. As the herbs are potent, it is not recommended to be used in food, or if pregnant or nursing. Take 1 teaspoon daily for best effect.


“Wake Up” Oil

Contains Only: Grapeseed Oil & Essential Oils of Peppermint, Lemon & Frankincense.

This topical is best for when you need a boost of mental clarity. It can be applied to the temples and back of the neck for quick relief. However, if you have the time, try it on the bottom of your feet before starting your day. Your feet have very large pores which are conducive to absorbing beneficial essential oils 20% faster than elsewhere on your body.


Fines Herbes Blend

Parsley, Chervil, Lovage, Green Dill Tips & French Tarragon

A delicately balanced bouquet of finely flavored herbs found in French cuisine. Add 2 teaspoons of the blend at the end of cooking to a dish made to serve four.


Herbes de Provence Blend

Thyme, Marjoram, Rosemary, Summer

Savory, Lavender Flowers & Fennel Seed

Use to flavor grilled foods such as fish and meat, as well as vegetable stews. Add 2 teaspoons of the blend at the end of cooking to a dish made to serve four.


Artemisia Smudge Stick

Comprised of three main plants in the Artemisia family, Wormwood, Mugwort & Sweet Annie.

This smudge stick is very aromatic, a little bit goes a long way! Light the flowered end and begin wafting the stick up and down with a gentle cadence.

Burned as an incense, Artemisia has many uses. It can be used simply as an insect repellent, or metaphysically it has been used to induce prophetic dreams. In traditional Chinese medicine it has been used for Moxibustion, or heating the smudge to a coal and using the smoke and heat to alleviate arthritic pain.

In medieval Europe it was used as a remedy against fatigue, and to ward off wild animals. It was believed that John the Baptist wore a girdle of it in the wilderness.

There is a modern belief that wafting the smoke around equine of any sort, has a calming effect. Make sure you have something to catch hot ashes if you burn this incense in your stable.


Bee Confident

Bay & Bergamot Sugar Scrub

Contains Only: Olive Oil, Evening Primrose Oil, Raw Sugar, Granulated Sugar, Raw Honey, Bay & Bergamot Essential Oils.

Not for eating! It may very well smell edible, and look edible, but I wouldn’t do it, if I were you!

The scents of Bay Laurel & Bergamot Essential Oils are confidence boosting! Sugar scrubs are an excellent way to exfoliate your skin, while leaving it moisturized.


Silky Basil Bar

An invigorating bar, sure to put some pep to your step in the morn. This bar can be used regularly, but also as shampoo.

Contains Only: Saponofied Oils of Olive, Coconut, Shea Butter & Castor. Distilled Water, Sodium Hydroxide, Tussah Silk, Ground Basil, French Clay & Basil Essential Oil.


Happy Ending?


There are no happy endings.

Endings are the saddest part,

So just give me a happy middle,

And a very happy start.
