Happy Spring! It's still so cold and it seems we will have a year that will dive right into summer. I have a ridiculous amount of seedlings ready to transplant as soon as the outdoors agree.
In other news, this weekend is a busy one!
MELU candles will be for sale at a Pop Up happening at Pampered Pet Boutique and Barkery THIS SATURDAY 3/18 from 10:00-3:00.
I was invited back and customers have been asking about the "candle lady." The last Pop Up was for small business Saturday was very successful and I am hoping the same for this one! I will be at Pampered Boutique and Barkery as long as supplies last. My candles are soy coconut, high performing, slow and even burning that are set to and above IFRA standards free of carcinogens, reproductive toxins, pthalate, BBP, DHEP, DBP, and DEP FREE. The list goes on as these have the safest fragrance offered on the market. That is important to me bc I believe that as we make a living, doing all we can to be responsible about it matters. I wanted to provide the slowest burning, plant based, best smelling candles for my customers bc it's everything I look for myself in a candle. Soothing Peppermint Eucalyptus, Tantilizing Breath of the Moon, Spring Equinox, Green Tea Happiness, Clean Linen, I Love myself and I Love You, and Desert Cactus & Starry Nights candles will be for the taking! These are wonderful gifts for others and yourself!
ART SHOW this Sunday 3/19 from 1:00-4:00 at the Mattawoman Creek Arts Center. I will have two paintings on display at this group art show by the Accokeek Artists Alliance. There is a wonderful group of artists here and this is an annual show I am partaking in. It's situated in Southern Maryland and if the weather is nice, there is a park and marina with great walking trails right beside and leading up to the center. Bring one, bring all this Sunday from 1:00-4:00 https://www.mattawomanart.org
New Products! Typically I like to carry two lines for retail. As you know I am very strict on what I will work with from the ingredients, performance to packaging. There is TOO MUCH plastic in our lives, too many unnecessary and cheap chemicals and fillers that wreak havoc on our endocrine system which then can effect everything from our moods to the homeostasis of our immune systems. I happened upon a new line that is carried in infinitely recyclable aluminum with essential oils, vegan and the list goes on. It smells delicious and was designed by a hairstylist out of the Hudson Valley with high performance and nature in mind. Coming soon! I have products in salon and have been trying them on any and everyone! So far everyone is really digging it so in the works on sealing the logistics. We spoke for half an hour about the importance of our environment and health in mind. The beauty industry is saturated with toxic ingredients and cheap promises. That is why you should talk to your professional hairstylist about these products and stay away from infomercials on IG, Tik Tok and Facebook. We do the research for you💖.

There are many alternatives out there when it comes to Spring preparations. Please if you use pesticides, please use natural pesticides that don't harm our ecosystem.
