Hello August! To me, August is a time of enjoying those last weeks of summer and summer weather, all while gearing up for school to start. There's so much anticipation of making sure "xyz" happens before the return to school, as well as back to school shopping. What are you doing this month? Enjoying some last minute summer vacays? Prepping for you, or some littles, to go back to school? Whatever you're up to, we have some great immune boosting products we're enjoying this month! Check them out below! 👇
Tea Blend of the Month: Blood Orange & Lemongrass
BLOOD ORANGE & LEMONGRASS is blended with blood orange peels, hibiscus flowers, rose hips, dried lemongrass, and natural orange flavor. This naturally caffeine free blend is vibrantly fruit-forward and hydrating! It is rich in vitamin C and antioxidants. We like to drink this blend to reduce inflammation, fight infection, relax the body and mind, and support immunity. This blend is great served iced on these hot, final summer days, with a generous spoonful of honey!
Spice of the Month: Hatch Green Chile Power - Hatch, New Mexico
HATCH GREEN CHILE POWDER, from Hatch, New Mexico, is simply the powdered form of green chiles. During August green chile is being harvest and roasted in New Mexico, so the air is filled with the earthy and spicy aroma we all love! Green chile is rich in vitamin C and nutrients, and always arrives just in time for going back to school. We like to add chile powder to breakfast scrambles, to spice up green chile stew, to season meats, or to make enchilada sauce!

Essential Oil Blend of the Month: The Campfire
This blend is made up of Sweet Orange Essential Oil, Frankincense Essential Oil, and Ginger Essential Oil. We like to use 4 parts SWEET ORANGE, 2 parts FRANKINCENSE, and 1 part GINGER. The aroma is reminiscent of a campfire and is invigorating and mood boosting!
These three oils can be used together or separately, but for the month of July, when you buy all three together you get 10% off!

I hope August is a great month for you, whether you're maintaining your regular routine, enjoying those last vacay moments, or returning back to work or school soon.
While August is sometimes a bittersweet month for me (because I absolutely love and adore the summer months and temperatures), I am slightly excited for the upcoming Fall season. During July, while my daughter was away at Summer camp, I went on a date to a candle making studio. I made a Summer themed candle and a Fall themed candle. The Fall candle that I made got me SO excited and ready for the Fall season, in particular, the upcoming return of Pumpkin Pie Chai, and all things sweater weather! 😉 Stay tuned for the release of the Fall flavors next month!
