It is the New Year and the celebration of our 20th year in business!!!  

I find this an incredible time for reflection and planning.  Sort of a "pre-New Year" gift to yourself.  I have a little "pink book" in which I jot my ideas, my plans and my dreams.  Often in my thinking I am wondering how I can serve you better.  I want to help make your menopause a beautiful transition not a time of dis-ease.  This "IS" a time for we menopausal women to dive deep into our souls, a time for reflection, sit by a fire, pray, listen for the messages in the quiet. This is a time to honor ourselves.  That is what I think "menopause" is.  We have been the caretakers of our "world" and now it is time to care for ourselves.  Please read more about this and other topics related to menopause here.  Share you thoughts with me here.

Free shipping and a free gift for another two days!!

I hope you have had a wonderful Holiday Season!!!  

or call me.  I love chatting with you!!!  In depthconsultations available too!!

Drawings, Free Shipping and general holiday festivities....

It has been a festive week at MoonMaid Botanicals.  You all loved our "free shipping/pick a free product" special!! We sent out a lot of orders!!! A drawing of names from all those boxes was done and the winner got a bunch of goodies.  A drawing each weekthrough the end of the year for everyone who places and order of any amount!!!

It is the time of year when we can get run down, catch a cold, miss out on a bit of sleep....so it was time to decant the FireCider!!!  There is still a battle going about the "unfortunate trademark" of that name.  I have been calling it FireCider for 20 years and don't intend to stop now.

I am still missing my sweet dog Delilah who passed away a week ago.  The newest addition to the clan always brings a smile to my face.  I have never had a calico cat - and this one is a gem!!

Our Dear Delilah

I, we (my creature family and friends of the Sanctuary) lost our "best gal" - Delilah this week.  She was quite an amazing dog!!  She guarded me, traveled with me over many many miles, she kept all the other creatures in line, and towards the end of her life, she had her little brother come along.

Delilah came to me when I was first putting together the cabin @ MoonMaid Botanicals Native Woodland Herb Sanctuary.  She, and a "pack" of dogs came through every day wanting treats!!  A black lab, a wolf mix and little Delilah.  She had to be quick to keep up with the "big" dogs.........and she was!!!  Once I officially moved on to the land, and was there full time, starting Labor Day of 2003, she parked herself on my deck and would not go home.  I called the Mom of her "alleged" owner, took her down to Terri's house, yet before I even arrived back home, she had hustled through the woods and was waiting.  I am YOUR dog she said - and at that moment - I knew it.  You see, there is more to the story.

I had had a dog many years before - his name was Butch.   And he looked exactly like Delilah.
Exactly!  Can you tell the difference?  In realizing this, I scooped her up, brought her in the house, and we have been together ever since.  I strongly believe that Butch returned to me as Delilah.  He and I also did a lot of travelling, he was with me through some very tough times, and always at my side, just as Delilah would be these 11 years. He has always been watching over me - and he/she still is.

I will miss her almost more then I can describe.  Nissan and I walk through the woods, and can feel her at our side.  She is resting in peace now right out in the garden, the one she loved so well.

Thanks so much for all the warm wishes, condolences and prayers!!!  I appreciate it immensely.
