Timing is everything. And this gift, I must say, is perfectly timed. Obviously it looks beautiful. But that's not even half the beauty. I almost passed out last night as I was sniffing and huffing each bag of potpourri. And the lavender sachets are potent enough to fill a bathroom, a closet or even the PeaceMobile with a much more relaxing scent than (the scent that now overwhelms the cargo area).
I spent (too much) time playing eenie-meenie-minee-moe with all the different potpourri mixes on the website. I finally decided to start with these items:
[text from Earthmother Cupboard's website]
HeartSong - This was inspired by the fabulous JudithHeartSong. Vibrant shades of red, orange, and yellow with a touch of gold, combined with a heady jasmine scent, capture her lively and beautiful spirit!
Peace - This blend was inspired by FreeePeace's journal, Journey to Peace. The colors are the natural and down-to-earth tones of green, brown and cream, with the scents of sage and cedar and lavender.
I chose HeartSong because I'm a sucker for the scent of jasmine. Plus, you know, I just love Judi. So that's a bonus reason. I don't know how Hippie did it, but the Peace scent and the colors really speak to the core of me. Very earthy and calming. Exactly what the doctor ordered. Thank you Hippie. Already I want more. And so I shall get more.
Our community is blessed to get the chance to experience J-Land's artists and creators, like Hippie, during their start-up and experimental stages. Because honestly, her prices cannot be matched anywhere! Potpourri is only $4.00 for a two-cup bag. Three handcrafted sachets with cultured herbs and lavender oil for only $6.00 plus shipping is practically unheard of. Hello??? That's three gift-package toppings. Or three stocking stuffers. Or one whole gift as is -- perfect for holidays, birthdays, grab-bag office parties, or that well-deserved, long-overdue gift to yourself. Thank you, Self. That was very thoughtful. Aww don't mention it. I just wanted to show my appreciation...
Ten bucks goes a long way at Earthmother's Cupboard. Where else could you buy more than one thoughtful gift for under $10.00? With the ever-growing selection, you're sure to find a mix that suits anyone's style. If you're anything like me, you'll have a more difficult time deciding what NOT to order.

Before you rush off to place your orders ... I just had to post this. The following is the epitome of Hippie's journal name: Hippies In Yuppieland
My package arrived very securely wrapped in recycled materials ...
... consisting of a grocery store bag and a SpongeBobSquarePants Cereal box.
Commercial-Hippyism at its best!
