Introducing: Wholesome




Wholesome, a blend of essential oils in jojoba oil, helps eliminate airborne bacteria and boosts the immune system. Our Wholesome Essential Oil offers a safe and powerful approach in the battle against bacteria, germs, fungus, and viruses all year-round.

Wholesome is based on a blend of aromatic herbs used by the thieves of 15th century France.

The History of Thieves

Europeans began producing essential oils in the 12th century. During the Plague of the 15th century, certain thieves robbed the dead without becoming infected. Finally, four thieves were captured in Marseilles, France, and charged with robbing the dead and dying victims of the plague.

At the trial, the magistrate offered them leniency if they would reveal how they managed to avoid contracting the dreaded infection, in spite of their close contact with infected corpses. It was disclosed that these thieves were perfumers and spice traders who had rubbed themselves with a concoction of aromatic herbs.




The name Thieves has since been trademarked by Young Living.  Wholesome can be compared to Young Living's Thieves Essential Oil Blend.

Introducing: Hottie Honey!

We have another winner in the honey department: Hottie Honey!  It's a combination of creamed local raw honey and arbol peppers.



As of a few months ago, I didn't even know what arbol peppers were!  Since then, I've discovered that they're called Chile de arbol, and they're a small, red Mexican chili pepper.  Oh, and they're hotThey have a Scoville rating of 50,000-10,000, which equates to a 7 or 8 on a scale of 1-10.  (By comparison, jalapeno peppers are 3,500-8,000.)



I love them in chili and Mexican dishes, but I have to be careful to use just a little bit.  Otherwise, it's too much for me.

But something magical happens when they're mixed with honey.  Everyone who has tasted it has said basically the same thing: first you taste just the honey, then the peppers start warming up in your mouth, and the heat escalates.  But, before it becomes too intense, the honey takes over again, cooling off the heat.  You're left with a great taste and just a little bit of heat.

We took our Hottie Honey to our first show recently, and we sold out!  People tried it, loved it, and bought it!  Now we want to hear how people are using it.  If you try it, let us know!
