There are amazing people everywhere, doing amazing things.  One of them is Robyn O'Brien.  I have posted a link to her life-changing TED talk and also to her web site on to my own Links page.

I want to urge all of you to read ingredient labels and understand what you are consuming.  Look at the packaging and think about what effect this has on the environment.  We are a part of Nature, not apart from it.  If we harm our environment, we harm ourselves and all others.

I wish you a wonderful December no matter what you celebrate or how.  Let your every action and purchase be an expression of love and care and goodness.  What you do will have an infinite ripple effect, beyond your own perception. 

Take care and be well.
Your "Aunt Sareen"

<![CDATA[Summer Care]]>Mon, 16 Jun 2014 05:04:59 GMThttp://www.auntsareens.com/blog/summer-careHello Friends, my virtual nieces & nephews.

Summer brings sunshine and mosquitoes.  Take care! 

By all means, enjoy the sun.  Being in the sun is uplifting and it increases Vitamin D.  But watch out for those SPF products that contain nasty toxic and carcinogenic chemicals.  

I prefer Aubrey Sun Care products because they use the most natural ingredients available. Aubrey's beautiful products are available through Aunt Sareen's and you get 10% off the retail price when you mention this blog and take delivery. 

Also, what better way is there to shooo off the mosquitoes than by using natural Lavender essential oil?  Not only is it known to be good for your skin and relaxing to your sensibilities, but it smells great on ... whether you're a man or a woman.

You can dilute it in a spray bottle with water.  You can also dilute it in natural oil like coconut, sunflower or almond.  Then you have a nice massage oil too!  I personally will put it on directly when I'm in a pinch and want to keep mosquitoes away.  But it's wise to test your skin before you commit to this method

If you need more information about summer care, just call Aunt Sareen's.  It would be my pleasure to help you make a healthy natural choice.

<![CDATA[Aunt Sareen's Celebrates 4 Years in Service!]]>Wed, 14 May 2014 05:31:36 GMThttp://www.auntsareens.com/blog/aunt-sareens-celebrates-4-years-in-serviceFour years ago, I realized that I could not deny my dream any longer.  Although I did not have the capital to open up a physical storefront shop, an inspiring quote by Mahatma Gandhi kept nudging me.  "Be the Change You Wish to See ..."

The idea is twofold for me.  One is to be the change I wish to see in the world and the other is be the change I wish to see in my life.  Actually, now it seems silly to differentiate because they work out to be one and the same.

In any case, I decided to create this company within my humble means, on a shoestring budget.  I had nothing but a friendly attitude, a desire to help people and 4 sample bottles of my custom oils and sprays...  that and my knowledge about natural ingredients.

Today, Aunt Sareen's also has an amazing inventory of beautiful natural skin care products, herbal extracts, essential oils, dried herbs, supplements and organic teas. 
All of the dried herbs are either organically grown or responsibly wild-harvested.

I hope you'll help me celebrate these 4 years by writing me, blogging and taking advantage of the 10% additional discount on already great prices when you say, "Happy Anniversary, Aunt Sareen's!"

Many Blessings ...

<![CDATA[Plantastic - TED Talks are ... Fantastic!]]>Wed, 05 Jun 2013 00:53:27 GMThttp://www.auntsareens.com/blog/plantastic-ted-talks-are-fantasticI am watching a series of TED talks that are so great and very important. They are very short and for me were incredibly moving. I urge everyone to check them out for the sake of your health and the health of Nature upon which we are dependent.

If you have only time for one, I recommend either #1 or #3.
