JUST UPDATED NOW WITH NEW PRODUCTS TO SHARE!
Health is wealth, and it is the thing I value most. However, one of the other things I value, too, is the value of a hard-earned dollar! So, I thought I’d share something with you, too, so you can get more from your hard-earned dollars while also contributing to your health & well-being!
Part of our relaunch is to help you achieve your own unique mind / body / spirit wellness goals, and part of achieving them is having in many instances farm-sourced or natural products to help you along the way, whether to help nurture or inspire you. At the end of most of my new wellness articles, you will see that I have included a product or two that relate to the content, and products that I've found to be of value. However, in many instances, these products were emailed to my attention and in most instances later sent to me. Although I was not under obligation to review or even like them, it is what you call "gifted" and I want to disclose that.
So if I am gifted, why shouldn't I be able to give you something of value, too? Well, I am! I have asked the companies (ones that I ended up really liking) to offer you something as a 'gift,' too. (Products and their discounts are listed below!)
So, should you want to try them, enjoy the discounts so you can 'test' them at a better deal!! Just know that whenever I can, I'll pass along any special offer that I can get to you, too.
My hope is that we all have better balance, peace and health, and here is a recap of some farm-fresh and natural foods, beauty products, and innovative products to help us enhance our overall relaxation, wellness, even mindfulness & positivity, all of which can really add something beneficial to your life. Check back often to this blog (and on our IG social media channel), as I add more discounts to this page (some are still pending). So, please keep checking back here often and follow our social posts to see what just got included!
And, on one final note, I can’t stress enough how self-care is essential to our overall mental, physical and spiritual health. It translates into how we perceive our days, our lives, to how our bodies thrive and perform, and ultimately into the quality of our own days, relationships, and our overall lives. So, don't ever hesitate to do something nice for yourself, and just start by making good, healthy choices for you … and by selecting good, healthy products that align with your best self.

I haven't been able to go to a spa in awhile, but when I use these products I feel that I have just had one of the most luxurious scrubs that aany spa ever offered. Not only is it a scrub drenched in a signature oil that has an aroma that transports, but it also includes a high-quality body brush, shower gel and even lotion that all has the same signature scent. The idea here is layering your skin from the brush, to scrub, to gel, to lotion .... all of which leaves your skin truly glowing and smooth as can be. The scent doesn't interfere with your fragrances later either!
In my previous life, I ran a spa and beauty company, and this company was one of my ultimate favorites. I loved their high-end, quality spa and beauty products, and they were one of the first ones I reached out to when wanting to offer natural, environmentally conscious companies here. I so encourage you to review their offerings as the discount is a real treat for us all! I'm using the heavy moisturizing cream right now, I've needed it at night time for the winter. And I've also liked their overnight mask. It is all helping me feel more moisturized and healthy!

When inhaled as such or used in a modern-day beauty ritual like in the Moisture Rose Cuvйe.
“Resveratrol is my favorite ingredient because it Nourishes, smoothes wrinkles and redefines skin via moisture infusion in a single step. But not just any resveratrol – Zinda's encapsulated resveratrol is time-released so that keeps working for hours after application,” founder Caroline adds.
Other plant-based ingredients include:
- Apricot Oil is obtained from the dried seeds of the fruit. Skin-softening effects are attributed to the high concentration of Vitamin C. This oil can treat a variety of skin conditions without making your skin oily and the antioxidants in the apricot slow the aging process.
- The combination of properties in Rose Hip Oil has been shown to combat the appearance of skin damage. The antioxidants target damage-causing free radicals; and, Vitamin A, combined with the oil’s essential anti-inflammatory fatty acids helps improve skin tone, texture and pigmentation. Rose Hip Oil also hydrates, helps to exfoliate and brighten skin, aids in boosting collagen formation, assists in protecting against sun damage and contributes toward reducing hyperpigmentation.
- Evening Primrose Oil is known to be a great moisturizer. Not only does it make the skin soft, but it also supplies it with essential nutrients and healthy fats, making your skin look youthful and supple.

was facing health issues, she started making recipes herself to remedy her ailments.

The right concoctions proved to be a lifesaver and altered her journey in the process. ZV Botanicals is the result and it captures the essence of what has helped Joanna lead a healthier, mission-driven life, with products created with intention and integrity.
