“Go Local” is a term meant to encourage shoppers to keep their money in their own community by shopping in locally owned stores. Sometimes, this term also applies to business owners. When i received an email last week announcing the 9th annual “Let It Flow” event in Wren, i immediately responded that i’d donate a gift basket. As a business owner, i love bringing my products to my neighbors. As a person, i love getting to know the members of my community. As a sustainability minded person i try to utilize as many locally sourced ingredients as possible in my products, and love it when i get the chance to sell my products only miles from my home. For all of these reasons, plus my fondness for social gatherings, i’m happy to pitch in and help Wren to let it flow.

Wren is a little community just west/north of Philomath, OR and this event is a way of raising some money to help keep the little community center standing and available for more community events.  I’m looking forward to eating, drinking, listening to music and mingling with my friends and neighbors from around the area. The event is this Saturday, May 19th from 5 to 11 PM in the community building just north of Cardwell Hill Rd on hwy 223.

You heard that right, Nude Soap is now on the shelves of Market of Choice! Along with several other local soap artisans, and of course plenty of larger all natural soap companies, my soap can now reach a broader audience in the Corvallis area. Market of Choice is a family owned, small local chain of high end grocery stores. Within their walls is a stellar bakery, tons of natural and organic produce and sundries, and of course a rockin whole health section. They have everything from vitamins to natural incense, and now Nude Soap! Doesn’t it look great on the shelves?

While wandering the whole health aisles, I discovered that my favorite shampoo company, Nature’s Gate has some really nice looking new conditioners available, and i’m excited to hear they’ve gone sulfate free! Although i generally use only my own products, i do occasionally add a natural conditioner to my hair care regiment (Rosemary Shampoo Bar or simple baking soda scrub, towel dry, lightly polish with a tiny dollup of coconut oil or rosemary essential oil). I try to keep my use of bottled shampoos and conditioners to a minimum, in order to reduce waste and avoid sulfates. Now that Nature’s Gate’s gone sulfate free, my options are much wider. I can’t wait to try the tea tree conditioner: it sounds so yummy!

Speaking of the Rosemary Shampoo Bar…. my husband and i have been using it exclusively for the past 2 weeks and we’re incredibly happy with it! My thick hair is wavy and has tons of volume, and my chronically itchy/flakey scalp is calming down and has majorly reduced its shedding! My husband’s very thin and often stringy hair is light and fluffy, and less greasy in the mornings. We love this shampoo bar, and i’ve ordered more ingredients to be sure i can keep it in stock. I hope you’ll try it and love it too!
