Why Yes, Pour Me Another...

Sherlock - Luxury Candles
Sherlock Lotion Candle
My samples came in from Forage Candle Co. and I am so excited to share!

Forage Candle Co. made a really nice impression with the packaging considering it was only samples. As I opened the package, the samples were nicely wrapped in black tissue paper with a tiny card on top with Forage's One Tree Planted statement (sorry, I bent the little card while looking at it, oops). They are on a mission to plant 100,000 trees, so when you purchase any full sized Forage product, you plant a tree! That's awesome, I love it!

Some of my sample favorites were Sherlock and Pride and Prejudice, which is funny, because they are two very distinctive smells. The Sherlock luxury lotion sample has a masculine scent, but it's not overpowering, it's pretty subtle. You can definitely smell pipe tobacco mixed with old leather and a tinge of spice.  Maybe this IS how Sherlock smelled when he was off solving mysteries in the streets of London. To my surprise, I really, really liked it. I tend to stay away from "musky" cologne smells but this one was intriguing, if I say so myself. It definitely was not overwhelming.  It wasn't my first choice to sample but I wanted something my husband would enjoy as well.  He really liked it, so much so that I'm ordering the Sherlock candle for his office. The other two candle samples were Wuthering Heights and Old Books. The Wuthering Heights sample had a petrichor (my new word of the day), meadowy scent, with a subtle lemon twist to it, which I was really fond of. Old Books was interesting. It was a little overpowering for me. It does remind you of an old, dusty library. In my opinion, it is a little heavy on the leather notes coupled with the pine. I'm not favoring those two together. On the plus side it does include cedar, which is nice, but the overall candle sample itself really wasn't to my liking.  The Pride and Prejudice sample was my favorite. It smells clean and fresh. You can fully smell the touch of cream, lilac, lily of the valley, and rose notes. I love that Forage carries their candles with literary themes (I'm a big fan of Jane Austen).

 In my previous blog ("Hunters and Gatherers") I mentioned that the Forage Luxury Candles are made with a dual purpose. I was surprised to see that even the samples burned for quite a while. The Forage candle samples really delivered in the the quality of the lotion as well. I followed the instructions on their website on how to apply it, and, surprisingly, it was not hot to the touch and was creamy to apply. I was impressed on how luxurious it felt on my skin.  I'm very prone to dry skin and I couldn't believe how quickly it absorbed into my hands. The smell of the lotion also lingered for a while, which was really nice.

So, remember when you purchase samples from Forage they will send you a promo code (which they include in your samples) so you can apply the credit at check out towards a purchase of a larger candle, yay! Overall, Forage is a spectacular company! I was very impressed with their high quality product that doesn't harm your health or the environment. They pour their luxury candles in a high quality reusable whiskey tumbler, as well! So yes, Forage, I will definitely have another...another purchase that is!

Thank You for your Patience!

So happy to announce a relaunch for The Healing Sprig!   A lot has changed in these past few years (no need to go into all that detail, but we all know why). Though times have been challenging, some things still remain the same, and I'm really grateful for that! I'm so happy to be able to get back to what I love doing, and that's to highlight wonderful companies that are making a difference in our health and on this earth. Not only do I want to keep promoting companies that will help you start an eco-friendly life (and if you already do that, good for you! I'm doing a happy dance) but I want to continue to find savings to get you started, and who doesn't like that?! I'm looking forward to expanding my website with new and exciting companies that are striving to make a difference. It is my sincere hope to continue to reconnect with all of you. Thank you again for your patience and wonderful support!                                     Sally @TheHealingSprig      

Attention All Allergy Sufferers Find a $20 @ The Healing Sprig!

This is mine...Get yours today!  Just got the  Nav├Ąge Nasal Care device  because my husband was experiencing really bad allergies. He is a driver and sometimes drives with the windows down. The allergy  season this year has been so bad in our area. When he used it for the first time he couldn't believe the relief he felt. He said it worked immediately and could breathe so much better!  I was waiting for him to finish using it and clear up first because I wanted him to recover from the nasty allergies  he was dealing with.  I finally used it myself, and believe me it was not pretty.    You can totally see on the bottom of the  reservoir what it pulls out, really gross. It's surprisingly gentle and the suction is not overwhelming. I was able to talk while it was doing its thing. I didn't know what to expect at first...but it was super gentle, I mean you can definitely feel the water going in but it came out fast from the other nostril. It only took 30 secs to complete its cyc


It's that time product for review!  So here goes another "TMI" for the books.  I am here to talk about  The Luxe Bidet .  I came across my first bidet when I traveled through Europe (read about: Why Most Americans Don't Own a Bidet  here). They are quite common there. Most households have them. It's the norm.  It is a very well known fact that using a bidet is more hygienic than using toilet paper. We have been using this product in our household for a while now. I finally convinced my husband to get one and guess what, he loves it!  I can truly say he has a gratifying walk when he leaves the toilet, lol. Not only because he successfully installed it, but he now "feels" the benefits. I know TMI again...I can't believe this actually came full circle (feel free to fill in your puns in this whole post, lol).  But again, I feel this is something that needs to be talked about for several reasons. One: savings, two: hygiene health, and three: e
