Wellness Wednesday June 2012

Wellness Wednesday June 2012

At Eartha Naturals we care about YOU! All of you - what you put inside of you as well as what you use on the outside. If you’re reading this, most likely you’ve been to Eartha and have experienced the difference - the natural, non-toxic difference. From our hair care products and cosmetics to the tea room teas and treats, we strive to use the purest ingredients. At Eartha Naturals, where natural is beautiful, we research our products first and then pass the knowledge to you.

Summer is here and all things Eartha continue to be hot, hot, hot  - well, except for the tea in the tea room. We now have a variety of iced teas and coffee to keep you cool (there is still hot tea if you’re so inclined). Stop in for a glass or take it to go, either way, you’ll be happy you did!

Did we mention it’s June already?!? How did THAT happen? With Father’s Day on June  17th, we’re writing a week early AND focusing this edition of Wellness Wednesday on the guys. Yep, even guys love what Eartha has to offer! Ladies, if your guy hasn’t been to Eartha, we always have gift certificates available. Remember, Eartha is home to Sprouts Baby and Toddler Boutique so there’s sure to be something for the little guys too!

Welcome to Wellness

We have two services we think you’d like to know more about. One is geared for the guys and the other is something almost everyone can benefit from. The Services to Experience are BROW SHAPING/DEFINING and EAR CANDLING.


What is it: A service designed to keep those eye brows under control. Trust us, whether we’re taming  a few stray hairs or using our liquid hair remover to fight the "unibrow", this service will make a man look younger instantly.

What we do: We examine the brows and decide a course of action. We use Nufree non-wax liquid hair remover.  Nufree is applied to the hair we need to remove and then quickly removed with a cloth strip (think pulling a band-aid off quickly).

Why we like it: It is a quick service that provides a finishing touch to a fantastic haircut. It can also be scheduled solo. Confidence boosting investment - $10.00


What is it: Ear Candling ( also known as coning or ear funneling) has been practiced for centuries.  It is an ancient method of removing excess wax from the ear and promoting a sense of well being.

What we do: In the privacy of our treatment room, the service provider will light a hollow candle made of muslin and beeswax and insert it into the ear. The heat from the candle creates a vacuum in the ear canal and draws out excessive earwax and other debris which may be present.

Why we like it: Excessive earwax buildup can cause discomfort, headaches, tinnitus (ringing in the ears), or vertigo. Ear Candling may help alleviate these conditions.  Also, ear candling may draw out fungus, infection, Candida and other debris from the outer and inner ear canals and the Eustachian tube through osmosis. While many have found this service relaxing, safe and effective, this service should never replace medical treatment for a serious condition.

The GOOD FOR YOU recipe we’ve selected this month is NOT EDIBLE but will keep you from being the main course for the mosquitoes and biting flies that try to crash your next outdoor adventure. It is all natural, kid and pet safe.  The essential oils (EO) in this blend could be diffused or put on cotton balls or cedar chips (for use in closets or drawers). When applying to people or pets, please use the recommended amount of carrier oil (CO) below.


Essential Oils: 9 drops Tea Tree, 9 drops Peppermint, 6 drops Lavender and 3 drops Lemongrass

Mixed in a glass container (amber colored glass works best) with 108 drops of a Carrier Oil (almond oil or olive oil are two that are quite common).

To use on people:  apply blended oils to any exposed skin. To use on pets: put oil blend in a spray or mist bottle and mist onto pet. Please avoid the eyes of both people and pets.

Don’t want to mix your own? We do have Purple Prairie Botanicals Deet Free Bug Spray ($8.50) available at Eartha.

While both the SalonSpa and Healthy Skin and Body offer hair removal services, we understand that sometimes you need a quick shave. We chose Dr. Bronner’s Magic Organic Shave Gel as our Product of the Month.

Uses:We’re pretty sure that’s a no-brainer but, just incase - shave gels are products designed to lift hair and give moisture to offer a smooth glide when you shave, leaving the skin soft and smooth. This reduces the chance of further irritation and ingrown hair.

What’s in it: Organic Sucrose*, Organic White Grape Juice,  Organic Coconut Oil*, Potassium Hydroxide**, Organic Olive Oil*, Organic Shikakai Powder, Organic Fair Deal Hemp Oil, Organic Jojoba Oil, Organic Corn Starch, Organic Lemongrass Oil, Organic Lemon Oil, Organic Lime Oil, Citric Acid, Tocopherol.


** None remains after saponifying oils into soap and glycerin

Why We Like It: Dr. Bronner’s is a Certified Fair Trade company. Fair Trade benefits farmers and their families with fair prices, wages and community funding. The Organic Sucrose, Coconut and Olive oils are all from Certified Fair Trade sources. More information at www.drbronner.com.
