HUMBLE Deodorant Products– Humble ingredients…Humble Beginnings…

We’ve got a deal…lots of personal care products, including several varieties of deodorant. Herban Cowboy and Every Man Jack for the men. Own Beauty and Lavilin Bio Balance once a week antiperspirant for the women (and men if you don’t mind the box design)… Schmidt’s and Crystal for both, and six on clearance to make room for new ones.

What I’m sharing today is a line that we are ‘testing’ called Humble. Humble because it has Nothing Bad (their trademark) and simple ingredients–fractionated coconut oil, non-GMO cornstarch, baking soda, and essential oil scents: Patchouli & Copal, Pine & Cedarwood, Mountain Lavender, Moroccan Rose to name a few. They have a hemp comfort bar, and a hemp extract deodorant, and one stick with no baking soda for those that are sensitive to that ingredient. No aluminum or other long named bizarre ingredients–if you thought deeply why would you want to put them on your skin, let alone slather in your arm pits!

I say ‘testing’ because we are asking you to consider a token purchase, try them out, and then give us some feedback to determine whether we want to stock them on a regular basis. We will ask your name and a text number so we can check with you in a couple of weeks.

They also have a lip balm line–coconut oil, beeswax, cacao seed butter, apricot seed oil, and Vitamin E….and a scent or no…

Stop in and check it out…make a small purchase and sign up for feedback…appreciate it!
“Sweat and Drink Plenty of Water–
One simple, but oft-overlooked factor in health and longevity is sweating. But these days, the Western world is addicted to air conditioning, so people rarely sweat. We sit all day in temperature-controlled offices, ride home in air-conditioned cars, and set our home thermostats to 68 degrees. Most people literally have to go out of their way to sweat.

Growing up, I was told it was important to sweat to remove poisons from the body. In fact, one of the more efficient ways to remove mercury from your body is by sweating. At one time, regular sweating was even a traditional treatment used in medical clinics.

Another simple thing you can do is drink plenty of water. Many people are dehydrated and don’t even know it. The obsession with sugary drinks also worsens dehydration because elevated sugar levels in the blood stimulate loss of body water.

Of course, while you do want to sweat, you must be careful that it doesn’t lead to dehydration.”

Queen Bee Lovell @ Bee Healthy Worland

The two Bee’s–QUEEN BEE and BEE HEALTHY! New stock of wonderful Beeswax Candles and Honey Candies–Come check it out! We also carry raw honey (3# and 5# cannisters) from 307 HONEY AKA BRYANT’s HONEY…and the bulk honey dispenser is always ready to fill your container or one of our cute little honey bears– Local honeys, good for local health!

Why Beeswax candles?

“Did you know? Beeswax candles clean the air when they burn. They release negative ions. Pollen, dust, dirt, pollutants and other junk in the air will carry a positive charge, which is how they are suspended in the air. The negative ions released from the burning beeswax negate the positive charge of air contaminants, and the neutralized ions are either burned in the flame of the candle, or fall to the floor. Many air purifiers and water filters use this same effective negative ion technology.”

Because these candles clean the air and reduce indoor pollutants, they can effectively reduce asthma, allergies and hay fever. Further, pure beeswax doesn’t have irritating toxins or heavy perfumes. And let me add, as the candles are burning, they can be folded inward and there is less waste!

For more information on Beeswax Candles and Asthma, and Beeswax Candles and Allergies, stop in Bee Healthy and pick up an info sheet from Queen Bee. There is a nice comparative chart of Beeswax Candles and Paraffin Candles–Good info….

Our mission is to help you Be Healthy!

Group B Special Boxes this Week! Bee Healthy and lots of other STUFF…

GROUP B THIS WEEK– We had 5 Thursday’s in April which always throws our rhythms off if you are used to the first and third Thursday for Group A, and second and fourth for Group B…now it switches until the end in June. It can almost be as annoying as the time change in the spring–LOL! Also, keep in mind, the CSA membership is open and you can sign up at http://www.lloydcraftfarms.com. With the Buyer’s Group (going on now on Thursday’s) and the CSA you can get fresh, nutrient dense veggies 10 months out of a year!

Other Box goodies: Greybull Valley Butterhead Lettuce, ORG Lemons, ORG English Cucumber, the beautiful and sweet ORG Orange Bell Pepper, ORG Celery and ORG Cliptop Carrots, ORG Green Onions, and ORG Roma Tomatoes to round it out!– $30 **I tried for the fresh cauliflower but the price doubled to $6.00–so….we’ll give it a week to see where it settles! I’ll stock some organic cauliflower at $6.00 so its available for those that need it. 🙂

Extra items Thursday are ORG Strawberries- 1# clamshells, ORG Blueberries in the pint this week, more of the ORG Mini Rainbow Carrots (12 oz), lots of greens, ORG Broccoli, ORG Jalapeno Packets and ORG Green and Orange Bell Peppers, ORG Zucchini, ORG Earthbound Green Beans, variety of Mushrooms (including Shiitake and Mini Bells), and a good stock of ORG Honeycrisp apples, Heirloom oranges, and ORG Bananas–much more to chose from….Come and check it out Thursday. Produce held through Saturday, and then checked for freshness and removed if necessary. FRESH IS BEST!

Check out the last post at http://www.lloydcraftfarms.com or our FB page for info on some of the great STUFF we have in stock at Bee Healthy: Boxed Cereals and a wide selection of Granolas; gluten free wraps, tortillas and pocket breads; Beyond Burger patties and Amy’s California or Quarter Pound meatless burgers; and some of our specialty packaged goods like Buckwheat Groats, Thick Oatmeal, Pinto Beans, and Almond Butter Grinder Chunks (Almond Butter is super GOOD with sliced, Honeycrisp apples!!) We also have a large stock or gluten free flours and pastas, ancient grain wheats (Einkorn and Amaranth), and a Namaste Carrot Cake Mix that makes 2 cakes! Lots of supplements, teas, grocery items like oils and vinegars, spaghetti sauces and salsas, chips and refrigerated drinks, nut cheeses (and 5# loaves of Mild Cheddar from California Premium–0 grams lactose), and lots of krauts and pro-biotic loaded foods! And some of the BEST CHOCOLATE BARS…and good for you, too!

What’s @ Bee Healthy That’s so SPECIAL?

Lots of stuff! Stevia sweetened Chocolate Chips, Almond Flour and other gluten free options (AND NOW Xanthan Gum to help bond the the gluten free flours together as gluten does!)…Cereals, organic bulk items in 1# to 2# bags, Beyond Burgers, gluten free Wraps and Tortillas, quality Cheese Loaves, and Fresh Produce (Saturday and Monday only)…

In the grocery section with the chocolate chips are the Namaste Carrot Cake Mix (enough for two cakes), three boxes of cereal (NuCo Coconut Crunch, Cascadian Farm Berry Vanilla Puffs, Annie’s Homegrown Friends Bunnies–boxed cereals are 20% off), and a ton of choices in good healthy granolas (Nature’s Path Love Crunch with chocolate and strawberries and their Golden Turmeric, Back to Nature Blueberry, Catalina Crunch Keto friendly Chocolate Banana, Love Grown Raisin Almond, and Taos Bakes Apple Pecan and Madagascar).

What makes granola healthy? Low to no sugar, whole grains mostly gluten free, and other ingredients to tickle our taste buds…like chocolate chunks, dried raspberries, turmeric, and a variety of dried fruits and nuts.

On the top shelf above the granolas are our re-packaged organic Bob’s Red Mill Oatmeal, organic Arrowhead Mill Pinto Beans, and organic Buckwheat Groats. We buy 25# – 50# and then divide them up…cheaper and you’re not paying a ton for a pretty package and all the work that goes into designer bags. 🙂 BTWWe do not eat our oatmeal cooked but raw with raisins, nuts, and other fruit added. We don’t cover it with milk either…as you know oat makes its own milk! (Try some of the Oatmilk Ice Cream from So Delicious– green label with apples on the outside, and the Elmhurst Oat Milk in the refrigerated section…Elmhurst also has Almond and Cashew…no emulsifiers or other additives…)

What do you know about Buckwheat? First, it is not a grain or even wheat! It’s a mainstay in the Mediterranean diet, cooked like we cook rice. It is full of flavor and nutrient loaded. We have organic Buckwheat Groats on the top shelf with a label to help you to get to know them and how to cook them! We stocked some pastas made with buckwheat, but at the present they are out of stock…either a casualty of manufacturing shut down or increased demand…

In the Peanut Butter Section where we stock peanut, almond, and soy butters is another novel bagged item. It came in a large box with writing on the side that said “Almond Butter Grinder Chunks”, a mistake from UNFI one Friday. After looking into what the heck it was (the UNFI product label said “GT Strawberry Kombucha”), we found it was roasted almond chunks for making your own fresh Almond Butter!

But simplified: Here’s how the process normally goes for making butter…soak almonds, dry them (roast?), and then break into pieces. The bulk, semi-prepared Grinder Chunks are AMAZING…all the hard work is done, so you can have fresher butter at a much cheaper price AND with less time! A pint of Almond Butter costs around $15.00…this bag is equal to 3 times that amount for less than 2 times the price. All you need is a food processor, or maybe a VitaMix or Ninja, and a little honey–sliced apples or fresh bread is good, too…though a spoonful is delightful, too!

On the opposite side of the Rices, Flours, Cereals, and Baking Mixes, and east of the freezers, are the gluten free flours: coconut, cassava, rice, almond, bean…and now a small 3 oz bag of real Xanthan Gum.

What for, you ask? Xanthan Gum is used in binding non-gluten flours, thickening gravies and other cooking creations. Xanthan Gum is a fermented and dried product, and can be organic or man-made…ours is organic right from Bob’s Red Mill. 1/4 teaspoon to 2 teaspoon per cup is all it takes–we put those directions on the bag for you!

In the freezer we have marked down the Beyond Burgers 20%! This is part of our vegan ‘meat’ stock along with Dr. Praeger’s Veggie California Burgers (more coming in next week) and Amy’s California and Quarter Burgers. Dr. Praeger’s is a true veggie patty with whole peas and all! We have some Brioche buns in the freezer too that are light and tasty…non-gluten as well. Also for sale in the freezer’s are tortillas and wraps: The Real Coconut Company and Siete Almond or Quinoa tortillas...Also, liquidating the Ezekiel Pocket Breads that work great as a ‘tortilla’ or fry bread, but leak a bit as a ‘pocket’. All good flavor and gluten free–20% off!

Last item to tell you about is our 5# loaves of mild cheddar cheese. The label says “0 grams lactose” …

Cheesy Yellow Cheese - Colors Photo (34563243) - Fanpop
WHAT–lactose free from cow’s milk??? A little studying helped me to understand cheese making: the longer it is aged, the lower the lactose level. This cheese is California Premium (the brand name distributed by Romanio Dairy), a mild cheddar. I’ve bought this for our family for several years…good price, good quality, lasts well…but this time the company sent me 25# instead of 5#…so we have them marked reasonably and in the cooler to sell ($6.44/#). Give it a try!

Well that’s about it for now–What does Bee Healthy have that’s special? Lot’s of stuff! New produce every Thursday and the continuation of the Buyer’s Group with their Leap-Frog or Weekly boxes (still room to sign up if interested), gift ideas, and supplements to help build your immune system or enhance your health. A large selection of teas, essential oils, incense, gift ideas, and fun drinks and chips…better for you than pop and oily chips. FYI–for Saturday we have organic Cucumbers ($1.75 or 2/$3.25), 5 oz organic Spinach ($3.00), organic Broccoli ($3.75), half dozen organic Orange Bell Peppers ($3.25), organic Bananas ($.99/#) AND Green and Red Cabbage, Celery, Red Beets, 1# bag organic Kiwi, 3# bag Tri-colored Potatoes, organic lemons, organic Honeycrisp Apples. Produce is usually pulled Monday to make room for fresh– Stop in and Check it OUT!
