Spring Essentials!

Now that we are well in to spring, we thought we’d share some of our favorite must-have products for the season. Read on as a few True Botanica coworkers share some of their Spring Essentials:


Wisconsin winters are so cold and I spend most of them in hibernation mode… until spring finally rolls in and I catch a severe case of Spring Fever!!  No more Couch Potato, I want to do nothing but run, ride my bike, dig up the garden, play sand volleyball and chase the kids around the yard.  The morning after a good full day, my body reminds me that, although I sometimes act like it, I am not the spry teenager I once was.  I keep the Relief 4x Cream on my nightstand (to take the edge off), and a bottle of Joint Relief Plus in the medicine cabinet (to keep my joints healthy for springs-to-come).     


This spring I’ve been working on my first garden using organic and biodynamic seeds. It’s been a lot of work, but a lot of fun (so far). All of the prep work has involved a lot of digging in the dirt, and in turn, washing my hands. I’ve used the Hand & Body Moisturizer to keep my skin soft and moisturized. I’ve also been outside quite a bit in the sun and wind and make sure to keep my Boswellia Lip Balm in my pocket at all times to keep my lips smooth.  I’ve been tracking the progress of my garden so be sure to check back for updates on how my garden is coming along!


My body tends to be pretty sensitive to the changing of the season and with it comes the sneezing and dreaded “clogged up” feeling in my head. I’m not one to sit still, so I make sure to have a bottle of Sinus Plus and AKBA Plus nearby. Both have helped clear up my head so I can breathe freely and go on with my day. I already take the AKBA Plus daily to help with post-workout stiffness, so adding the Sinus Plus was an easy adjustment.

Patrick’s (a new addition after Memorial Day)

This weekend I took advantage of the warm weather and fired up the grill. I made steak, crusted with our True Life Pepper (coarse). Just load it on so it soaks in before tossing it on the grill. It really adds a great flavor and is quick and easy. Right before I serve the steaks I sprinkle on the True Life Sea Salt as a final touch. The Sea Salt also goes great on grilled vegetables.

What are your Spring Essentials??

    Living down here in Houston, Texas we get a very limited amount of spring like weather before we get our premature summer extreme heat advisories. But during those couple of weeks I love to be outside; the hubby and I take rides on the motorcycle and go for walks in the parks so I can get in touch with my artsy side and take pictures, and I love to spruce up my apartment balcony garden. Since I am in the sun for extended periods of time I always have my SPF 50 sunscreen handy and then my after sun aloe moisturizer, and I don’t go anywhere without my lip balm. I look forward to giving True Botanica a try this year.

    • One of the True Botanica coworkers has been working on her garden and is going to give us progress updates. You’ll have to check it out and give any advice you have! Be sure to let us know if you try our Lip Balm. We do have a weekly Twitter giveaway, so be sure to follow us for a chance to try out some of our products (including the Boswellia Lip Balm)!

    I am definitely not the teenager I once was either. It seems ever since I had my daughter the aches and pains come faster and stronger. Your Relief 4x cream sounds like it might help out with that.

    Thank you for the giveaway. It be great to try one of your products.
