Save Lotsa $ on shampoo and soap


Self Heal Herbs on Blanshard has shampoo in bulk. The bottle I buy is about $8-9 dollars and lasts better part of a year…none of the crap ingredients either.


Also: Dr. Bronner’s soap, while it costs $6 or so, lasts well over half a year, if you keep it out of the wet. I have a think sliver about a quarter inch in length and it is STILL producing enough suds to shave with! AND you can brush with it too.


Compare those costs with your current soap and shampoo

How About A “Herb Walk?”



Master Herbalist Don Ollsin

June 7, 2014


Wild Food & Herb Identification Workshop

An exciting, hands on workshop about the culinary, medicinal and spiritual use of local herbs. Connect directly with the plants and learn how to use them to enhance and enrich your life. This knowledge is truly rare, unique because it is an oral tradition carried from my teachers to you. Much of it is not in books.

Location: McKenzie Bight

Time: 11:00am – 2:00pm

Cost: $47 + GST



Grass Fed Beef.


Grass Fed and no grain finishing means high in Omega 3, which most need more of and low in Omega 6, which most get too much of. I have one source that writes they believe the obesity epidemic is linked to the extremely high amounts of Omega 6 in the modern western diet.
