Atlanta Pet Rescue Event ....A Success

Gene Cox

We can't believe it's almost been a month since our Pet Adoption weekend.  We wanted to make sure to say a big thank you to all of our customers who came by to show their support. 

Because of you, Atlanta Pet Rescue, raised $300 in  donations and 15% percent of our sales on pet accessories for the day.   Of course, we  also made sure they left with a bag filled with our favorite dog goodies (pictured on right). 

BUT the real stars of the event were the four legged canines (and a few felines) who charmed just about everyone who saw them.  So, much in fact, that 3 DOGS WERE ADOPTED!  We were thrilled by this news and you can imagine how thrilled those three dogs were. They now have a family and a home. Thanks to you.

If you are looking for a dog or cat to adopt, make sure to check out Atlanta Pet Rescue. They are an amazing organization and we can't wait to invite them back for another day of dogs, biscuits and adoption.

Why We Like: All Natural Perfume

Gene Cox

Admittedly we have been quite intrigued lately by aromatherapy.  After researching the ways essential oil and fragrance impact our bodies we began looking for a line of perfumes and sprays that fit the mold.

Acorelle features French-made fragrances where their entire goal is to keep the experience upscale and “real”.  Organic alcohol is used and so are natural fragrance materials.  Our customers who have sampled the products tell us the perfumes make you smile whether you love that particular fragrance or not.

Due to the fact that there are no phthalates or synthetics injected into the formulas the product is clearly more light and fresh than the regular fragrances on the market.  Some of the perfume names alone are attention-grabbing: White Orchid, Bamboo Lotus, Citrus Verbenal, etc.

Earlier this year Well+Good NYC published a list of nine “amazing all natural” perfumes.  Have a look at the list here maybe you have one on your dresser.

 

Why We Like: Essential Oil Diffusers

City smog, old flooring, new paint . . . whatever the reason we’re keenly interested in improving the air we breathe while inside our homes.  Plants clean the air and so do beeswax candles, but we find one of the quickest routes to better air is through the use of diffusers.  After several weeks of research two electric models rose to the top: the nebulizing diffuser from Aromis and the Scentilizer line from Serene House.

To use a vegetable analogy the Aromis is like eating raw vegetables and the Serene House  is like having cooked vegetables.  What we mean is that even though they both diffuse 100% essential oil quite nicely, the decision will be up to you if you like the oil to be diffused by forced air or with water vapor.

If you want to dig deeper, Aura Cacia has a myriad of helpful information for both the novice and armotherapy veteran.  Here’s an example of one of their helpful hints:

Myth: The way to make sure you are buying pure essential oils is to request “aromatherapy grade” oils.

Facts: There is no universally accepted standard or grading system for aromatherapy oils. Oils used in aromatherapy should be 100% pure, unadulterated, complete oils.

Of course we’re happy to give you a demonstration here at Eco Denizen and we’re all quite happy that our workspace is now filled with the healing and motivating effects of pure, diffused essential oil.
