YES!  Owens Acres now has a Facebook page.  Head on over and check it out.

How is the winter season treating everyone?  The Solstice has come and gone, so the days are slowly becoming longer, the holidays are over, life has gone back to some sort of  “normal”, and I couldn’t help but do the “air quotes” after I typed that.

January can be a bit of a let down for some after the hustle and bustle of December, for some it can be a relief.  The holidays were something to look forward to, be it wanting them to get here or wanting the madness to end, and there isn’t that festive level of hope going on in January.  A lot of us are dealing with dreary weather, dark days, cold, colds in general.  Spring is still a quite a ways off and other than that hope of Spring, there’s nothing going on.  Well, other than coping with the aches and pains of the cold weather, I personally deal with bone spurs in my neck and sore hands.  Oh, and year round hayfever.  These days it seems like my eyes will not stop watering.

Oh, the thrill of tax season.  How could I forget that?  *rolls eyes*

I have, so far, stayed well.  Vitamin C every night, plenty of tea with hibiscus in it, rest, hand-washing…I’ve not caught the Kennel Cough that goes around work every winter.  I am keeping myself sane with the wonderful scent of Neroli, which I just discovered a few weeks ago.  Its sweet and cheery smelling, and that’s been keeping the spirits uplifted.  I have indulged in Owens Acres Neroli Goddess Butter, Neroli and Myrrh Solid Perfume, and other citrus scented products.  The brighter the essential oil the happier I am.  I went over t Etsy, put Neroli into the search engine and came up with 454 items, if you’re curious.

Bottom line:  take care of yourself.  There’s only one of you, and you’re worth it.

The proximity of a desirable thing tempts one to overindulgence. On that path lies danger.    -Frank Herbert

Hand of Fatima Beaded Necklace from Owens Acres

Laura over at Owens Acres has been a busy woman, which means more goodies for us.  Here’s a quick rundown of what’s new and what’s going to be new.

And if you couldn’t already tell, I am just so happy there’s more goodies!

Garden Jewelry:  along with her soap and lotion making skills, Laura beads like none other.  She’s working on her Garden Jewelry Pages and she’s always adding more.  I personally cannot wait for what she’s gonna come up with for the holidays, but in the meantime I am wearing this lovely Hand of Handsa necklace she made me.

There’s going to be a Beard and Mustache Conditioner that is also good for dry skin and ethnic hair.  Can’t wait to try this on my wild mop of hair.

Goddess Butters:  these are going to be awesome.  I am going to cut and paste what she wrote on her blog:    So sometimes our skin is just super parched and dry and regular ol’ lotion just isn’t quite enough to revive it.  Hello Goddess Butters!  Pure organic coconut oil, organic palm oil, and pure essential oils.  Will come in 8 divine goddess natural scents (not fake or perfumes!) including:  Rose, Coffee, Rosemary, Neroli (Orange Blossom), Chamomile, Bitter Almond, Orange, and Vanilla.  Each smells unbelieveable!  Can be used alone or mix some in the palm of your hand with your favorite Owens Acres lotion, for example:  Coffee Butter and Tangerine Lotion – OMG!  Hope to add Lavender to the lineup soon.  Will come in 4 oz. colbalt blue jar with aluminum lid.  $12 ea

I will be here all night if I go thru everything, but here’s a quick rundown:  we’ve got Serenity Travel Tea in a Tin, Hand-Stamped Muslin Sacks, an adorable 6 inch plush bunny stuffed with lavender, tea wallets…heck just  check out her latest blog post here, or go enjoy her delicious items on her web page at http://www.owensacres.com
