amber, nuts & a giveaway

sounds like an exciting combination doesn't it! {grin}

remember these amber necklaces...
the girls have worn them for what seems like ever
they were their first necklaces
they've been with them through teething and runny noses
and accompany every "pretty dress"

We {love} them!

now it's mom's turn...
to wear amber with every pretty dress tank top and gaucho pants {grin}
and you better bet there will be amber around my neck when I'm not feeling well
I am in love with my new necklace...
it fits right in with my love of bold, unique & beautiful jewelry & natural remedies!
Now what about the nuts you say?
do you know what these nuts can do?

They wash
did you catch that?
They wash!

Soap nuts that aren't really a nut, they're a fruit
grown in the Himalayas on the Sapindus Mukorossi tree
harvested. de-seeded. dried in the sun

and so much more

100% natural and safe
low sudsing
sustainable harvested
natural fabric softener
one of God's creations

Are you wondering how these nuts work?

The soap nuts shell is rich in saponin an all natural surfactant. When mixed with warm water and agitation the shell releases this saponin which lowers the water tension making the water wetter and allowing the water to penetrate the fibers of your clothes and release the dirt more throughly. That's when the saponin in the water bonds with the dirt, washing it away from your clothes.

It's perfect. It works amazing. And it makes sense! Why did we have to go start making synthetic soap again?

Does God ever just knock your socks off with his amazing design!

Let's see...

  8. I love the necklace you are wearing!

  9. We LOVE our HazelAid here!! Each one of us have a necklace from there! I really like the one you're wearing!!

  10. I really love the look of the amber necklaces, but think i would benefit most from the hazelwood/amber necklace. I've been considering getting one for a while, but haven't had the extra money to spend. Crossing my fingers!

  11. I LOVE the Cognac and Cherry Baroque Leaf...but I like the Hazelwood and light amber too, it's not as much my style, but I wouldn't mind a bracelet to see how I like the hazelwood. Have you tried the soap nuts? I saw them about a year ago and thought about trying them, and just haven't jumped in yet. They sound AMAZING though!
