Enjoy a cup of RooibosThe startling versatility of Rooibos (a.k.a. Red Tea), combined with its wonderful flavor and aroma makes this new beverage a favorite amongst tea fans. Some interesting facts to know:

  • Anti-inflammatory agents in Rooibos are know to promote healthy skin and soothe irritated skin, as well as alleviate hay fever and asthma.
  • It's naturally caffeine free! So enjoy a cup after dinner, sip it slowly to help you relax or make a whole pitcher of iced tea to share with the kids!

Pamper Yourself At Home - Phluff your Pillows

Did you know that women take better care of their hair, nails, face and feet than their breasts? Phluffing is a safe, easy, gentle movement that should be given to the breasts at least twice a day.

Benefits of Phluffing

  • Reduce breast congestion and discomfort if done before, during and after the menstrual cycle.
  • Relieve breast pain
  • Prepare the girls for their mammogram!
  • Decrease lumps and cysts from fibrocystic breasts
  • Moves lymph and brings the killer T-Cells to protect the breast from bacteria & cancer
  • Brings blood & oxygen to the breast tissue
  • Cleans out toxins & stagnation
  • Become familiar with your breast, which leads to easier self breast exams

Massage oilHow to Phluff

  • Bend at waist or stand upright
  • Cup your hands under each breast.
  • Gently move your hand in an up and down motion as if fluffing a pillow.
  • Phluff about 10 times
  • Place the side of each hand under one breast onto the ribs.
  • Move your hand left to right in a sideways motion, about 10 times.
  • Finish with a drop of massage oil to complete the pampering.

Phluff at home, at work, in your car, preferably in the morning upon awakening, or showering, during the day and especially after the bra is removed at night.

Product of the Month - 100% Soy Candles

Veladora continues the tradition of pollutant-free, environmentally-friendly candles in use by the founder's family since the first half of the 20th century in La Habana, on the island of Cuba. For ambient lighting, Candlepower was the norm, and the founder's family, due to respiratory concerns, used a special blend of 100% vegetable wax candles imported from Europe and hand-poured with fine aromatic fragrances.

Veladora CandleSiboney 1942 is named after a popular song of a famous Cuban composer, Ernesto Lecuona, and will remind you of a tropical night with its enticing flora blended with the Spanish flare of Lavender and Patchouli. Old World at its most modern! (This is my favorite) $22

Varadero Spring is reminiscent of an ocean shore and nearby fields of citrus and mint. Refreshing to say the least, this candle essence was specially blended by the founder based on his memories of the many spellbinding beach trips in old Cuba. $22

The Veladora Loyal candle benefits The Humane Society of the United States by directing 100% of the net proceeds from the sale of every candle to support the work of The HSUS, including such programs as Pets for Life and RAVS (Rural Area Veterinary Services). Loyal boasts classic aromatherapy with an added benefit: it melts into pure soy wax with essential oils to create a warm and pleasing massage. Loyal comes in a recycled paper box and is 100% biodegradable. Loyal is made with natural, pure ingredients, a lead-free wick, and the aroma is pleasurable for animals and their owners. $29

Through the month of September these 100% veggie wax candles are only $17 and $24 each. These make great gifts, stocking stuffers and hostess gifts for the holidays. Take advantage of our sale so you will be ready for those last minute gifts.
