What I’ve been up to (the oils and herbs edition)

My life goes through seasons where what keeps me most occupied shifts from one part of my life to the next. If drifts from homeschooling to farm; from family to garden; from writing to LüSa.

And while I've been busy doing some writing and retreat planning lately, I'm mostly busy with body care this season.

Since I've been a bit more quiet here as I dig in hard over there, I thought I would share a few highlights for those who are curious as to what I've been up to. It's always an honor to share my current projects with you! 

(If any of the LüSa items below speak to you, please add a note of "Kindness IS contagious" to your order. I'll be sure to throw in something extra, just because.)


Bee's Knees Gift Collection



A limited edition vanilla-citrus gift collection, I created this sweet little bundle for Valentine's Day. The scents are divine, and the products are far from our usual offerings!

Our base oils, sugars, and honey are organic and we're are donating 15% of sales to the Center for Honeybee Research. What a treat this was to put together!

Be you bravely tees!

Our Kindness is Contagious and Water is Life tees were a runaway hit, but it was time for a fresh new design. "Be You Bravely" is printed in white on a black organic cotton tee shirt. We're offering them in sizes S through 5XL. 

We love these! You can find them here.


Better Balm


I've been working on the formula for Better Balm for years. We included it in a recent Treasure Box and it was met with wild enthusiasm!

Better Balm is an all-purpose herbal balm. Infused with calendula, comfrey, lavender, and chamomile, it's like Booty Balm in a superhero cape. It brings the best of Booty Balm and Cheek and Chin together, for all your skin care needs.

You can find Better Balm right here.


Treasure Box 2017

Treasure Box 2017 is off and running and I've been busy in my studio working on the spring product collection. 

It's hard to believe it's been almost two years since I dreamt up this project – and so many of you jumped in to support it. Thank you for trusting in me and helping make this vision a reality. 

Creating each Treasure Box collection is one (well four, actually) of the best parts of my year and I love the creative process of dreaming up six new products to share each season. We still have some 2017 Treasure Boxes available, both as single boxes and annual subscriptions.

You can find more details here.


Spring Herbal Retreat


And last but not at all least, I'm digging in on preparations for the Spring Women's Herbal Retreat.

I'm polishing my recipes, ordering and preparing herbs, and dreaming up all of the new and lovely potions we will create during those four days together. I can hardly wait! 

I do still have space for six more ladies, so if you've been mulling over joining us, now is the time! I'll be closing registration very soon. 

Some retreat details can be found here, or drop me an email and I'll answer all of your herbal retreat questions!

    A special sout out ((woot!)) to the Better Balm! With twin toddlers, it lives on my kitchen counter and gets used for all the booboos that seem to happen daily, including mine. It’s awesome!
