True Botanica Gets Crafty

– Valentine Idea –
Boswellia Lip Balm Holder

With Valentine’s Day approaching, the True Botanica team thought it would be fun to try out a new craft idea with our Boswellia Lip Balm. This fun (and easy) project is the perfect gift for your Valentine.

Supplies (feel free to get creative, but here are the supplies we used)

Felt
Card Stock
Construction Paper (optional for decorating)
Eyelet
Sewing Machine or Needle and Thread
Glue Stick
Scissors
Ribbon/Yarn (optional)

Instructions

Again, use your creative intuition, but the basic process is you want to sew a piece of felt to another piece of felt or piece of card stock so that the Boswellia Lip Balm fits snug inside. We added an eyelet to the top in order to tie a ribbon. As you can see, there are many different ways you can create this Lip Balm Holder, as long as the Lip Balm can be held in place, you’ve done it correctly!

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:

Heidi’s

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).     

Philia’s

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!

Alyssa’s

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??

Pamper Your Mother This Year

Do you need some ideas on what to get mom this Mother’s Day? Check out the gift basket one True Botanica coworker put together to pamper her mom this Mother’s Day.

Mother's Day Basket

This year I put together my version of a home spa basket for my mom, as a special way of showing my thanks for how she takes care of all of us. I included a pedicure kit, so she can get her toes ready for sandal season. I made sure to include the Orange Salt Scrub, perfect to use on the legs and feet before the pedicure, and Hand & Body Moisturizing Cream to keep the smooth skin after. I also got her a Boswellia Lip Balm, because she likes having one in every purse. Of course I couldn’t forget to throw in her favorite – chocolate.

What are you getting for mom this Mother’s Day?
