Essential Oils & More - Be Kind Botanicals
Happy New Year!
It is amazing how quickly 2017 passed for me! I was blessed to be able to rebrand the old business into Be Kind Botanicals and had a pretty amazing first month considering everything going on that month (June)! In August I was able to attend the well planned Alliance of International Aromatherapists conference and meet with both old and new friends. I was also able to meet with a few new distillers which I hope to work with in the future. My favorite part of August was my birthday - I purchased my first Copper Still and spent the entire day with colleagues who I love dearly.
As September began, so did event season with more events than last season. In October, I opened myself to a deeper creativity to begin offering limited edition blends for special occasions starting with Samhain in honor of my fur baby we laid to rest. I was blessed to be able to reflect and create during Samhain. Through this magical time, I completed my first distillation and named my still. "Patience."
As November came, you surprised and blessed me a gift that I will forever remember and cherish. November was the biggest month of the year for Be Kind Botanicals thanks to you! December brought me many opportunities to engage with my local communities to share balanced and safe information about essential oils while setting more new records and firsts.
This entire year would not have been possible without you. Seriously! I know this is a very lengthy newsletter, but I could not start the new year without sharing this last year with you and giving you the latest news and updates. Here is to 2018 - I hope your 2018 is as amazing as you are!
It is amazing how much inventory I really have at the end of the year. In some cases I find out how much over stock I have and in others how much I don't have. So let's start with what I am low on.
- Helichrysum Hydrosol – 4 oz
- Lavandin Hydrosol – 8 oz
- German Chamomile Essential Oil – 5 oz
- Atlas Cedarwood Essential Oil – less than 2 oz
- Trauma Oil – 20 ounces
Please note that I am opting not to continue offering Atlas Cedarwood due to its endangered listing. I have offered it since the beginning but I can no longer do so knowing how quickly has moved from the threatened list to the endangered in just a few years. Also, once I run out of trauma oil it will not be available again until after the next harvest in July/August of this year. So plan ahead and get yours now.
Overstock & Sales
I know I have been saying this for at least a month, but I have some essential oils I really do need to make room for that are arriving very soon. Harvest for some of the citrus oils I import from Italy is happening now through the end of January. With this being said, I have too much of 2017's batches on hand. There are also a few others that I just have too much of and want to make sure they are utilized and not set to rest on a shelf. Below are the ones that I will be offering a sale on:
- Bergamot (steam distilled)
- Red Mandarin
- Tea Tree
- Winter Solstice
With that being said, this month I am offering a 30% discount on all of the essential oils listed above in the overstock section. Just use the code OVERSTOCK when you check out. This is a once a year deal friends. It will not happen again so take advantage of the price of these artisan oils and blends.
Also, for those of you who adore the Natures Bliss essential oil blend, I have decided to offer a FREE 2 ml of it with every purchase that is $35 or more. This is going to be an automatic deal so you will not need a code. Just choose your items and I will include it with your order. The artisan distilled Douglas-fir is what truly makes this blend shine!
I am going to continue to offer free priority shipping for US orders over $50 and Canadian orders over $75. This is another automatic offer. The free sipping in conjunction with the 30% discount on select essential oils and the 2 ml bottle of Nature's Bliss is a HUGE deal. Happy New Year!
