Mother's Day: Great Gift in a SNAP!!  

In a pinch for Mother's Day?  I bet you are!  Forget buying over priced fresh flowers that were probably cut premature for the mass demand holiday.  Make these real looking "silk" decorations for your Mom in a snap!  Awesome if there are "two" Moms to plan for!  They retail for at least $44 if you were to buy them from a silk flower company.  They cost under $9 to make your self.

Run by the Grocery store and get 3 or 4 quart canning jars (usually in the seasonal section near "charcoal"), then bop over to Michaels Craft Center and buy the "gel" that looks like water.  (Yes, they sure have it...) and grab four or five pretty silk hyacinths while you are there.  When you get home, simply snap (or cut with wire cutters) the stem, and angle the buds in the mason jars with the gel setting. You can do this with Silk Rose buds to, making them appear to float in water.  Just do this carefully and you will have a AWESOME design for Mom in a jiff.  You may want to get some beautiful ribbon and tie them together to present as a gift.  If you want to extra fancy, Lavender (or Rose) Bath Items and room spray would compliment the floral gift quite well.  I would just grab the bath items from a pharmacy.    Have a GREAT weekend and good luck!  Now let's hope your Mom does not read this or you know what you may be getting in return!  Cooler-you can do this every year and give her different colors to work with.  Here is a link to an on-line seller of faux water.

Other News...Long awaited Beekeepers Digest is now in print and the book is lovely!  Click here to order...Beat the Skeets...Already I am hearing our lemon creme and lotion is loved by men as well, and working better than Skin So Soft for night time cook outs.  Meaning the bugs do not like the scent, but the humans do!  They say it is also working far better than any citrus candle.

To the right is lavender butter made with Shea and two types of lavender, as is all of the MM lavender collection.  The only other ingredient is Soy Wax to be a "bridge" keeping the butter from being too liquid with a high essential oil load of 5%.  The butter is purported to really help with eczema so it was given priority in being added to the lavender collection.

Scent Choice:  Bulgarian Lavender is my true love, with pronounced floral notes and no camphor as is true with many of the Lavenders.  However a second Lavender is being produced in France that has the floral notes with the subtle woody aroma that hits us when we smell dried lavender or walk into a natural food store.  I love it, so I combined the two with great success.  ***Color is achieved by Blue Malva and/or Blue Chamomile Essential Oil.


Lavender is very relaxing, I spay the essential oils on my pillows with no worry of stain.  A Teddy Bear is ideal, you or a loved one can keep refreshing it.  The lotion and/or cream is strong enough to apply on wrists before retiring.

Tip:  Never have lavender in the bedroom if you are after something more than sleep!  I bath with Lavender at night and a few drops of Rosemary essential oil, which drops tension.

Going Green Ideas with Class by  Mabel White

Exchange paper towels for cloth. Our favorite green practice actually goes back to a trip to the United Kingdom!  Generally Londoners have less per square foot living quarters and have to make every inch of it count.  They are also very accustomed to using natural resources sparingly.  It is hard to find "paper towels" at any UK residents abode.  They use cloth and simply throw the cloth in with their wash.  After understanding that concept, we thought about just how much we spend on paper towels per week.  It was like $40 a week in our laboratories and a good $8.00 in our households.  We went ahead and spent $50 on lots of white wash clothes and hand towels for both areas, knowing it was the last time we would spend gobs on paper towels.  This has saved us in excess of $2,000 over a year period. 

Drying clothes outside and skipping the Dryer not only saves money, but also extends the life of your clothing such as cottons and silks.  Many Europeans do this, and it can be done tastefully without infringing on the "neighbors" view.  For winter months we use wooden racks inside the house.  Clothes are dry over night which most of us do not know, because we are so spoiled with Kenmore.  Consider hand washing dishes.  That may save a good $20 a month on your energy bill.  Do use one eco friendly all purpose cleaner rather than several pricey household detergents.  It saves money and helps the environment.  Make your own Windex, with an old Windex bottle good old vinegar and water. If you want color, you can use a few drops of any food color you like.  Save money on anti bacterial soaps, which often cause a built up resistance-and have 90% proof or higher alcohol in decorated glass vinegar bottles near areas that hands are washed.  That alone can save up to $520 a year.  We use the alcohol to wipe down commonly touched areas like toilet & phone handles when any flu breaks out.  That has helped to reduce transmitted bugs by 90% or more in our work and home areas.  Grow your own herbs year round for cooking, medicine and natural air purification.  Now is teh time to get them, as they are hard to get in the off season months.  Why buy glade when you can purify your air naturally and essentially for free? Basil is gorgeous, a natural air purifier, and you can make pesto and all kinds of other great dishes with it.  You just cannot kill Basil, I grow it in water vases all around the house.  Each sprig grows big and lush-and I do have it year round.  I even use it for floral greens when I make floral arrangements from my garden.  Chocolate Mint has become my second best favorite.  It is also purported to grow in water alone-although I am still experimenting with that. 

There is nothing like fresh infused chocolate mint tea after dinner.  Odd, it is a fairly clear hot liquid and not what you would expect to see. Like Basil, it smells luscious and gently purifiers the air. Lemon Grass and Cilantro are now my 3rd and 4th favorites. Lemon Grass does look like an over grown blade of grass, and again, hard to kill.   Splashed with Lime juice, these two make plain old Chicken Broth a  Thai "Tum Yum" soup real quick!  They are also used in Mexican dishes like fajitas.  I am now freezing fresh herbs with water in ice cube trays.  Plus growing your own herbs is healthier.   I have become a much better cook now, and find it challenging to work with just a few ingredients.  Not so much because of a recession, but more because my diet is so limited to feel great.  In the kitchen now, it is "quality" not "quantity."   A feature protein, fresh vegetables, a great salad dressing-and no tons of starchy sides as most of us our accustomed.   This is better by far for health and weight, better on the budget, allows easier clean up and is very satisfying. Changing our idea of what "delights" us, such as a cup of chocolate peppermint tea instead of a a big fat dessert after dinner.   The truth is, we do not feel that great after a big rich dessert.

When stored in the kitchen, near the sink, Mabel's Miracle All Purpose Organic Castile Liquid Soap is very much a conversation piece.  Old fashioned, yet contemporary with its ...graceful crane neck, this is truly a classic product.  The crane actually pumps out one exact ounce of liquid.   The crane can also be re-used later on most any 1/2 gallon bottle.  We keep this liquid Castile by the sink to use as a veggie wash, to make soapy water for dishes, or to clean other areas of the house, such as counter tops and wood flooring.  We also have a bottle in our laundry room where we use this bio friendly soap in conjunction with Borax to meet our laundry needs.  Our Castile liquid soap is safe on skin, but we do not recommend it for that. There are no skin conditioners in this particular soap.  It is made with organic olive and coconut oils.  Made in the America, this is a totally vegetable based soap.  Maid Holistic is a book Mabel wrote with methods and formulas to clean a home naturally.  This is also in e-Book form and free with a purchase of Mabel's Miracle Castile Soap.  Click here to down load the manual.  In the book the author discusses how to "feed" wooden floors with this soap and few drops of Lavender and Peppermint essential oils.  This soap is a fair alternative to Mabel's Organic Oil Soap and can be also used as one would Murphy's, as well as Dr. Bronners.  A 1/2 gallon lasts us a good for months and is over all a great savings by replacing several high end commercial cleaning products.

I got home from work this afternoon and one of my orders had arrived.  It was the one with the Mabel's Miracles in it.  I am jumping up and down inside!  The products are wonderful and they look fantastic, too.  You've really done a great job with this.  I think that both of the lotions are a superb choice.  One is very uplifting while the other is very calming and soothing.  And I just have to tell you that the rose scented oil that you put in this box is great.  Very soft.  Not cloying in any way, shape or form.  I am so rose picky.  I can't help it, but I will give credit where it is due.  This is a good scent.  I really and truly like it.  If I didn't I wouldn't say a word.  lol

Proctor, GA

Just wanted to share!

I am a stickler for ingredients and found Mabel White about 3 years ago. After looking for literally years for acceptable products that met my stiff ingredient criteria, I found Mabel White products were EXCELLENT quality. Since working with Deborah, I HAVE learned A LOT more about what true quality is. So... when Deborah, the author, known as Mabel, came out with a line of finished products at the start of 2008, to market to establishments needing them in volume--I JUMPED on board.

I get 50% so it is like being a partner, and Deborah treats me like one too! Beyond quality, the second reason I signed up is that no other company has products EVEN CLOSE the unique products I now sell. Support is UNSURPASSED, we have our own "blog" now and I have seen Deborah promote from within. One Rep who started just before me now runs Mabel Media, simply because she possessed great graphics ability and a Winning Attitude. A few more that signed in just before me will head up other divisions. I am THRILLED with this company and it is quickly becoming a second "family" to me! Not only that, it has INCREDIBLE potential to produce the kind of income that I have been searching for. I KNOW I will do more than better food money! I am making more than I expected in my first few months!!! The repeat nature locks me in.

If you read my method in the Sales Forum, I explained how I got my business moving within just a few hours.

Okie, here goes... I love Soytanicals simply because it is a line of products that I TRUST. I KNOW the high quality is never going to be skimped on, and the pure and simple ingredients speak for themselves. I am NOT in it for the money, but the money just...happens. I literally put not even HALF an effort into it, and I have only given out 2 half gallon samples-UNSCENTED! and already the 2 managers are calling me back. Those were my "chumming" samples. Now I am ready to catch the big shark and reel them in. And what it boils down to, is that I trust Deb. She NEEDS us to trust her, and she gives it all back threefold, and then WE profit! She has so much faith in trusting US with her product, her name, and it literally sells itself. Another plus, is that I added some of her bulgarian lavender to the 8oz samples we got and the lotion is keeping my sons eczema in check. I keep it next to the baby for diaper changes and wipe her down each time w/ the rash ever! I know actions speak louder, etc. But I LIKE sittin on my butt and letting the lotion sell itself!

Pastore, NV

I started a bit different from most of Reps here. I found Mabel White site and saw lots of quality supply & had lots of questions, I nerved up and send Deborah my many tedious questions email and seriously was not expecting to get a reply back. But I did! I exchanged several email with Deborah and was ecstatic when she told me that she just came out with a line of products that no one currently carries and customers do buy in volume, you betcha, I jumped on board.

I joined and proud to say I am now selling one of a kind product and with a family oriented company. The support between reps are like brothers and sisters and that there is no another company that has the product that as unique and willing to tailor to the customer needs. And Deborah does promote from within.

I do graphics part time, and Deborah made me the head of Mabel Media--in short order. Her reasoning was because "anything than supports the talent in our group." So, beyond being a Rep, I get to work with her almost on a daily basis! I am expecting soon, so this may allow me to stay home by 2009. No other company has this model--it works.

For the past 15 years, I've been exercising/rehabilitating in the pool 2-5 times a week. I've used lots of different lotions and creams to alleviate the dry flaky skin, especially on my legs, caused by the chlorine.

Since I've been using the Soytanicals Creme, the dry skin on my legs has disappeared, and the rest of my skin is silky smooth and soft. I thought I had to just put up with dry I don't, thanks to Soytanicals Creme.

Pike, CA

Soytanicals to me is a name that has been given to the best products you can get knowing that it is the highest quality available anywhere. In knowing that, when I talk to anyone about it I'm not trying to sell anything really, just sharing what I know and believe. The product sells itself. All the people that are involved with the Soytanicals are WINNERS HANDS DOWN! and just a truly great bunch who know when to be serious but also know how to have fun!

I Trust Deborah, she has everyone's back and best interest as top priority. She is right here with us.

When I think of the Soytanicals opportunity and the experiences involved I smile from the inside out!!
