Lilith's Apothecary

As you all know, I am a big natural medicine and herb advocate. My family hasn't used Western medicine for years. We haven't needed it! I have learned how to use herbs and homeopathy to care for my family's health. Herbs are a passion for me! I am fascinated with how they can help the body heal and prevent illness. There really is a natural remedy for whatever ails you!

I am a member of the Holistic Moms Network which is a group of natural minded moms who are there for each other in support of raising their families in a more natural way. In October, our speaker was Medical Anthropologist, soon-to-be Certified Herbalist, and owner of Lilith's Apothecary, Sarah Powell. When I found out that Sarah was to be our speaker, I got on her website and read her blog. I eagerly await each of her blog posts that are rich with tips and DIY recipes galore! I was already fascinated by her and her work and was so excited to be able to meet her in person! It was so encouraging to meet another mom who is so passionate about herbs!

Sarah spoke to us about Herbal Immunity and her presentation was wonderful and so informative. She let us breathe in the soothing, healing aromas of an herbal steam and taste immunity tea. I learned so much and was able to take the handouts home, make the recipes, order some herbs and herbal texts, and be on my way to furthering my love of herbs and herbal medicine.

As I briefly mentioned, Sarah is a Medical Anthropologist at Temple University in Philadelphia. This is her day job. She is also a wife and a mother of a little girl and by night, she makes herbal teas, herbal bath and body products, and herbal therapy items. You have to take a look at her amazing product line! They are just beautiful! She also writes for various natural health publication such as "The Herb Companion" and others.

Sarah said something that was quoted in a recent issue of City Paper that I think is so poignant and something that everyone needs to know. She said, "Western medicine is critical for acute care, but hopeless for chronic conditions and prevention." That article can be viewed in its entirety here.

Here are just a sampling of what is offered at Lilith's Apothecary:

Sarah Powell is truly an inspirational, empowered women who is blessing all of us with her passion, talent and knowledge of herbs. I hope that you will visit her shop, fan Lilith's Apothecary on Facebook, Follow her on Twitter and read her blog. You too will be inspired!

Pin Up Cosmetics

I was recently introduced to a fabulous line of vegan cosmetics called Pin Up Cosmetics. They are a vintage-inspired line of natural products with a retro flair. This line of luscious, creamy lip glosses and shimmery mineral makeup will be sure to awaken the inner glamour girl in you!

Created in 2007 by makeup artist, music industry professional and San Francisco native Aprill Lacey, Pin Up Cosmetics is a breath of fresh air in the cosmetic industry.

Not only are these cosmetics beautiful, but they are good for you too! Pin Up Cosmetics is committed to bringing safe, natural cosmetics to you without nasty chemicals or additives like carmine, parabens or FD&C colors. Pin Up Cosmetics products are not tested on animals and are cruelty-free.

Aprill was so kind as to send me some of her lovely cosmetics to try. My favorite product so far is the Hot Dish Vegan Plumping Lip Gloss. It is a clear gloss that goes on smooth and shiny. I either wear it over the Cupcake Natural Lip Balm (which I love as well) for extra shine, or all by itself. Hot Dish has a yummy peppermint flavor and scent which is very nice and refreshing. My children comment about how much they like the scent whenever I apply Hot Dish in the car. They say I smell like peppermint candy! Yum!

I also have Glamour Mineral face & Body Shimmer. It's a gorgeous, sparkly shimmer that is perfect day or night. I am really enjoying "glamming" it up with Pin Up Cosmetics.

We have Pin Up Cosmetics available for you at 90210 Organics. Here are just a few of the products from this fantastic line:

Episencial & Anne Geddes Team Up to Introduce Epicuren Baby

Just before Christmas, I was introduced to a fabulous skincare line for babies by Episencial called Epicuren Baby. I was immediately intrigued when I heard that renowned photogropher, Anne Geddes did the photos for the products. Upon reading all about the products I learned that Epicuren Baby is a safe, natural and organic alternative to those chemical baby bath and body products that are on store shelves.

I was sent the Episencial 'Epicuren' Welcome Set - Baby Daily Wash & Lotion to try out and I loved it! I am pretty picky about how my kids' bath and body products smell and these are very lightly scented like lavender. Very appealing!

Epicuren Baby is:

100% naturally derived skincare for babies and moms
certified organic ingredients
episencial™ aromatherapy to support the bonding experience
actively healthy formulas for skin, body, and environment

The full line of Epicuren Baby is available at 90210 Organics.
