So, have you heard the rumor that Spirit Quest is for sale? Well, I hear that a couple of times a year. There’s always truth behind a rumor – and this is no exception. Yes, the store is for sale – it always has been; however, there is no imminent sale – I still have passion for the store and the bigger piece is, that no one has yet come forth with a serious offer to tempt me.
Our Frequent Buyer Program not only earns you points, and 1000 points equals $10 to spend in the store. No card to carry and, with each purchase, you receive a ballot entry for our month end prize draw. Maggy has a random draw at the end of each month and gifts a customer with an item – sometimes she will give away five gifts. There’s a good reason to keep shopping.
We have some new Wood Wall Art along with gorgeouscarved nesting boxes, mango wood vases, and muchmore. From Celtic Weave to the Tree of Life, pictured here, there’s sure to be something for every taste, decorand budget.
Be sure to look at, or should I say, smell, our new line of triple milled, naturally scented Italian soaps. Hydrangea/Rhubarb, Citron/Bergamot, Noble Cherry Blossom/Basil and more; mmmm, now that’s truly decadent, and at reasonable prices, too.
Don’t you just love it when science agrees with what the Metaphysical world has known for ages? Near death experiences have been shared throughout all of our history – hence the belief in reincarnation throughout so many cultures. Proof of Heaven is the autobiography of Eben Alexander, a neurosurgeon whose near-death experience bridges the gap between science and spirituality.
Your body is a temple and we offer two different ways for you to keep it that way. Come in and take a ‘test drive’.
Tea of the Month – Licorice Root: Licorice Root tea is one of the most beneficial teas, and rarely discussed. It has anti-inflammatory and anti-spasmodic properties, is mildly laxative and helps protect the stomach lining. It can help the liver neutralize toxins and is believed to help fight the formation of plaque in blood vessels. Licorice is also an expectorant, and it is widely reported to ease pre-menstrual tension. Herbalists recommend Licorice Root as a replacement for St. John’s Wort in the treatment of depression. Licorice Root is very powerful, and it’s recommended that you limit your intake to 1 or 2 cups a day. Do not drink Licorice Root if you have high blood pressure.
Essential Oil of the Month – Palmarosa: Palmarosa essential oil has a sweet floral scent, reminiscent of a hint of rose. The therapeutic properties of Palmarosa oil are antiseptic, antiviral, bactericide, cytophylactic (fights infections), digestive, febrifuge (reduces fever) and hydrating. Palmarosa clears the mind, is mildly uplifting and clears muddled thinking. It is beneficial to use Palmarosa oil during convalescence as it cools the body of fever, aids digestion, and helps clear intestinal infection. It is also a wonderful addition to your beauty regimen, as it balances hydration levels and stimulates cell regeneration of the skin. Ways in which you can use Palmarosa oil include burners and vaporizers, blended in massage oil or added to your bath, and in washes, lotions and creams.
