Making 2018 even more Holistic and Natural

Posted by Kate Lipka on

Robin's Egg Jewelry is dedicated to providing products and education that enhance the holistic lifestyle. It is our mission to lift, support, and educate the community in living the most authentic, holistic, and natural life. 2018 is going to bring much more education in this area. You will see more opportunity to grow through classes/workshops, collaborations, education through social media, and products designed to heighten and enhance your holistic lifestyle.

I am truly excited about the growth of Robin's Egg Jewelry. In many ways, it reflects the growth in me. I can't wait to share everything. But I must be patient and cultivate all the lovely little pieces before I through them willy nilly out to the world. They must have time to grow in order to truly flourish, just as we must give ourselves that time, love, and care.

One thing I can share with you is that I recently became an independent consultant for Neal's Yard Remedies. I'll be completely transparent and admit that until Neal's Yard Remedies the words "Independent Consultant" sound a little dirty to me. Why not with Neal's Yard? Well, because the company is exactly the opposite of dirty. You can learn much more about them here. Here's my short version of a very long story:

A few months back, I met my now good friend, Lisa Rogerson, at a market we were both participating in. I was selling my Robin's Egg, she was selling Neal's Yard Remedies. We chatted a bit. I tried some of the products (the wild rose beauty balm) and smelled a few of the essential oils she had with her. I took a catalog with me and went on my way. I kept thinking about that beauty balm and how amazing it smelled and felt. I read about it in the catalog and was curious enough to check out the website. In the process, Lisa and I became good friends and decided to start teaching classes together (I'll share more about that in another post).

Once on the website, I was hooked. I can write about all the things that impressed me, or you can check it out yourself. I loved seeing all the third party accolades and awards. The 100/100 ethics impressed me. The Fair Trade stamp impressed me. The Cruelty Free impressed. I then started looking more closely at the products. Not only could I pronounce most of the ingredients, I found information about the ingredients I didn't recognize quite easily on their ingredients glossary page. This kind of transparency really impressed me.

I hadn't been blown away by the essential oil products I had been using. They and the company were fine. But no, they didn't blow me away like this. I talked to Lisa a bit more about the company and learned that Neal's Yard Remedies is quite new to the U.S. and that if I really want to check out a store, I could. I just have to go to London, England. Currently, the only way to purchase their products is through an Independent Consultant. Again, I'll be honest and say that made me feel a little uneasy. I slept on it and slept on it and slept on it some more and finally decided I believe in what this company stands for. I love their products. I wish I could go to their store, but I don't have any trips planned to the UK, yet. I decided to not only buy the products but begin selling them, as well.

Why start selling them? Because their mission aligns so well with Robin's Egg Jewelry's mission. Because their products are truly toxic free. Because the company prides itself on transparency and ethical business practices. Because these products, skin care and essential oils, are really the best I've used and the price is ethically fair. And because I believe everyone should have access to these amazing products.

So this is just one way Robin's Egg Jewelry is bringing more holistic and natural living to all of you. I do hope that you will check out the page (here) and learn more about them. AND right now (until December 31, 2017) Neal's Yard Remedies is offering 30% off many of their products, including a ton of my favorites. Check out the winter sale and order on my ordering page.

You will begin to see links to the essential oils in the product descriptions so that you can purchase full sized bottles to pair with your holistic jewelry. You will also start seeing exclusive Robin's Egg Jewelry Essential Oil blends made with Neal's Yard Remedies Essential Oils. You'll also see information about the skin care available at Neal's Yard Remedies through social media posts and right here in the blog.

Here are some of the items in my cart and why I love them so very much:

Revive Geranium & Orange Gift Collection

 

  This gift collection of the Revive Geranium & Orange products is my little self-care gift to myself. Geranium is wonderful for the skin. Not only is it a natural way to improve circulation, it also relieves inflammation, and reduces the appearance of wrinkles. Orange pairs beautifully with geranium. Orange contains a powerful antioxidant that fights free radical damage and helps ease inflammation.

Was $50.00    Now $35.00

Oil Free Hydrating Serum

The Oil Free Hydrating Serum has been so lovely this winter! After an afternoon outside, running it out with my 5yr old little Monkey, my skin needs a little extra care. This has been perfect. It is light, oil free, and wonderfully hydrating. I put a bit on my face at night after washing with the Wild Rose Beauty Balm (also amazing!).

Usually $48.00    Now $33.60

 

Speaking of the Wild Rose Line of Products, the Wild Rose Body Elixir is a must! I wish this blog had scratch and sniff! The scent is just beautiful. It is truly like walking into an old, cultivated, fully blooming rose garden. I really can't say it any better than Neal's Yard so:

"Enriched with wild rosehip oil, a fantastic source of antioxidant vitamin C to help keep skin looking and feeling healthy and radiant, antioxidant acai, rich in skin-plumping omegas 6 and 9, and ultra-moisturising cocoa butter and Brazil nut oil."

                                                                                                Was $51.00    Now $35.70    

                                                                                                      A total STEAL!

Wild Rose Body Elixir

Now, we can't forget the men in our lives! They deserve holistic, natural, and non-toxic products just as much as we do. Luckily, Neal's Yard Remedies offers a nice line of men's products as well. Even though my guy sports a beard, I have some friends who have shared their husbands love this product. So, I've thrown a bottle of Neal's Yard Calming Aftershave Balm into the cart for those gift giving needs.

Neal's Yard Remedies Calming Aftershave

What makes this so great is that not only is it a nice cooling and calming Balm, it also contains antioxidants, so Mr.'s skin will be nice and protected. It is a vegan product made with 70% organic ingredients. Usually $27.00   Now $18.90

I also threw in a bunch of Essential Oils. Like I said, I am in the process of creating some Robin's Egg exclusive blends with the Neal's Yard Essential Oils, so I can't have too many. Rather than showing and listing them all here, I'll share one:

Neal's Yard Remedies Immortelle

As you can see, it usually goes for $45, which is significantly less than many competitors. Why the price difference? Well, as Neal's Yard Remedies says, they charge a fair price, not the price the market will pay, but what it fairly costs to deliver the product. And now with the Winter Sale, this lovely bottle is $31.50!

Why do I have this oil in the cart? Well, this baby packs quite a punch. Immortelle is often called Helichrysum has many wonderful properties including antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. It has been used for its medicinal properties for thousands of years, especially in countries like Italy, Spain, Turkey, Portugal, and Bosnia and Herzegovina. It is said to help with allergies, skin inflammation, gallbladder disorders, and insomnia to name a few. Like I said, this little essential oil packs a punch!

At 30% off, I'm also grabbing a bottle or two of Ginger, Lavender, Rose, and Ylang Ylang (my current very favorite!).

So, there you have it. I've spilled the beans on my love of Neal's Yard Remedies and have invited you to the Winter Sale. I've started a sale page to make ordering easy. You can click here to get to the sale page. If you want to browse the website here is a link to that. And of course, if you have questions, please please please reach out!

Stay on the look out for more ways Robin's Egg Jewelry is bringing the holistic and natural to you in 2018!

Have a Happy one!!!

Kate
