New Year's Eve Greetings and End of Year Summary~

~~~
Wow what a year!  It's nearing the end of 2014 and the second full year since launching my herbal business (01/13).  I had two store accounts by October 2013 and by today, I am in 19 different store locations throughout the northern California area; From Ukiah to San Jose and Santa Cruz.

As I say in my 'About Me' section…I created this business for various reasons, one of them being that my health had suffered and was having a devastatingly negative affect on my entire life, esp. my ability to make a living.  Things were not looking good and I didn't know how I would pull out of it.  Honestly.  So I set out to recreate myself and in the process created The Sultry Gypsy Herb Co.  and my line of Alcohol-Free Herbal Formulas and Soothing Pain Salve :)
And to my relief and joy it is taking hold and growing wonderfully!  Even though I still have some health issues that bother me, I now have this fledgling business that is giving me a hopeful future and I enjoy what I do! It's been tough times for many of us but I think slowly we are coming out of it intact, moving in good directions from what I can see.
Thank YOU all for the support and faith in my company and what I make.


I'm proud but moreover some of my hope has been restored in these precarious times.  I am glad that my remedies help so many people.  I hope to continue to!
~~~

Working hard to make each year better and better is my goal.  I pine for time and space where I can write more often and delve into the arts again.
Health permitting, I also want to start dancing again!!
For the time being…I'm taking this time to rest over this truly cold Bay Area winter we finally have and plan for the coming year=more growth, more healing and more success!  And more arts!

Wishing everyone a warm and safe and thoughtful winter break…and a Happy Heartful New Year's Eve….be well :)

Peace.

A poem to welcome Fall.


Greetings, I'm looking forward to Fall as it's starting to emerge.  The grace and calmness of Autumn really helps to settle the soul and unrest we may have from the excitement of summer.  It's a time to go inward and become a bit more grounded, take on healing in different way and work on projects that may be close to home that were pushed to the side while flitting about during the heat of summer months. Here is a poem I wrote awhile ago to welcome Fall.  Enjoy it. 
Hope your summers were fun and your health is strong.  Fall is a great time to start building up reserves again and cooling down from an excess heat which can keep us up late at night, minds buzzing like bees.  Time to build our immunities and inner strength for the coming seasons of introspection.
Happy Autumn. 
Danya. 

Beckon Me. 
As Fall may finally be peeking it's head out…I am ready for it and waiting.  
I need the softness it begets in me, the intimacy it summons. 
In the mean months of Summer, I swell with confusion, lost in my body's resistance to stay outward and flit about.  
From the dark underbelly of the earth, this change in season, grows upwards in a slow crawl of secrecy, seducing us in it's subtle arrival.  I lavish it's return. 
The sweet smell of plant life sticks in the air, flowing through me and leaving it's trace around my face.  
A smile grows, not unlike the smile of a wolf as it walks through a quiet forest. 
My soul feels welcomed at last…by something.  Home perhaps? 
Quieted by the silence this change creates as the earth grows calmer, I grow within. 
The tension in my sides relax, my heart beats in time with the wind and I feel aligned with the world.  Settled.  
Fall is coming, can you feel it? 
It's seeping in.

~Taking a Break~Announcement!

!!Announcement!!  :)

The Sultry Gypsy Herb Co./Danya, me will be taking a break starting April 16th through May 1st and will not be at the Mill Valley's Farmer's Market on Friday's for two weeks.  I WILL be there this Friday though(April 11th).
Sorry for this inconvenience but I need to take a break, rest myself and visit family & friends.  I really truly enjoy my work, all aspects of it, but since it is completely on me to do everything, I work joyously but endlessly so I must find ways to rejuvenate myself so I can keep going!


If you need remedies or pain salve, try these stores:

Good Earth in Fairfax (has my entire line, pain salve, lip balm & rose/cedar body butter).
Driver's Market in Sausalito has nerve ease, fussy gut, second immunity, anti-viral, relax and gentle sleep along with the small pain salve.

~Suggested Dosing~

Hello Folks and Happy New Year! Hopefully you've avoided that dreaded sinus cold going around the entire country this past week.

I wanted to address dosing.  Many of you ask when purchasing one of my remedies, 'how much do I take?' And what I usually say is, 'Everyone is different so you need to find out what your threshold is, what works for you. Start small and build up if you need more.'  But still, that is vague.
I am realizing that based on the fact that I am a new business, working things out as I go and NOT being a doctor or a medical practitioner, I have been very conservative with my dosing suggestions.  It's how I prefer to work, with everything.  But I realize that many if not all of my remedies being as gentle as they are, could be increased by a lot more than I am recommending for most people, except for those who are very sensitive and for children which would get a much smaller dose.

So the next time you are in pain or sleepy or cramping or fighting a cold, try a 1/4 to a 1/2 of a dropper full.  If you figure out that that's not enough, next time try a whole dropper full and repeat (when applicable).  But more than likely, it will be enough.  Again it depends on your system and the remedy but know that they can be increased by more than what I've written on the bottles.  Everything I do is on the conservative side, including my expiration dates which are shorter than most glycerites (2 years standard).  That is because I don't want to take any chances with a remedy going bad, so I keep my dates short.

For now in regards to dosing suggestions…start small and build up, esp. with the pain relievers and immune support.  A little more will only help! For stress & sleep aids, start small and build up but find your threshold because once you find what works, there is no need to take more and waste it.

Cheers and be well :)
Danya.
