Do You Know Someone Who Could Use A Blessing?

Jul 07 2016

Nominate someone for this months Gift Of Grace.   Hello everyone! I am writing to extent a new opportunity that I think you will love! Each month, I find great joy in blessing someone through a  special delivery of Grace Green Beauty. Sometimes it’s someone that I know. Sometimes it is a random person that I notice. Sometimes it’s someone that I have heard about. I’ve learned to listen to the spurs of my heart indicating who I should  extend Grace to (and I am not just talking about the wellness line). It brings me great joy and also healing when I bless others. I am extending this opportunity to you! Do you know someone who could use a blessing? Every month, please send your nominees to my personal email. I will choose one each month. This lucky person will receive a special delivery right to their front door. There will be no trace of who has sent this gift, just a simple note that assures them that they are loved. This costs you nothing! Before I ask you some questions about your nominee, I want to remind you of one thing!… Grace isn’t always rainbows and roses. Sometimes, showing Grace to someone means, showing favor to a person who might not deserve it. We all have someone(s) in our life who have wronged us. I challenge you to consider nominating that person who might not deserve it. If you aren’t ready to do that today, maybe some day in the future! Let the fun begin! … 1. Who? Name and shipping address. 2. Why?  Why should this person be granted a beautiful gift of Grace? 3. What products do you think they might like? 4. Have they used GGB before? If your nominee is chosen, we will let you know! We will ask them […]

To The Mother Of The Boy Who Fell Into Gorilla World | Cincinnati Ohio

May 30 2016

To The Mother Of The Boy Who Fell Into Gorilla World I am writing to you with hope that amongst the myriad articles, posts and comments circulating worldwide, this letter reaches you and you are brave enough to open it. It stands to reason you’ll be hesitant. People have been quick to point accusatory fingers. I’m certain the overwhelming vitriol has you guarding and protecting yourself from passionately fueled individuals seeking justice through any avenue and venue available. But, you need to read this. As a mother of three, and owner of a green company who supports animal welfare and our responsibility to the world at large, I have a message you need to hear. How about a little grace? Do I mourn the loss of Harambe? Yes, I do. He was an incredibly majestic creature housed at and protected by the Cincinnati Zoo. I say protected, because he was was an endangered species. His presence was profound and our family enjoyed his egotistic personality time and time again. I presume you are regretful for the part you ultimately played in the death of this magnificent animal. But I extend grace to you. I’ve watched criticism morph into anger and have read terrible comments and judgement to the full degree. And yes, I’ve even seen death threats. But I grant you grace. Even the best parents have lost sight of their child for a split second, myself included. It’s a feeling a parent doesn’t forget. Even the best people have made catastrophic mistakes. The difference being, your experience is now in the public eye, ripe for scrutiny, second-guessing and a plethora of if onlys. It is easy to point fingers from behind a computer screen, smart phone or tablet. But you must bear in mind, sadness oftentimes gives birth to […]

Liquid Gold Never Looked So (Colloidal) Silver

Mar 01 2016

Colloidal silver has been used for 115 years as a natural antibiotic in countless applications. It fell out of favor with the advent of prescription antibiotics. But in recent years, as antibiotic resistance to potentially lethal bacteria like MRSA and SARS has escalated, the use of colloidal silver is making a come back and gaining respect. Like anything else, there has been much debate on the different forms of silver (ionic silver, silver protein, true colloidal silver). I want to save you a lot of time, and focus on the scientifically backed principles and guidelines for the best option: true colloidal silver.  I’ve listed a number of resources at the bottom of this page that validate the safety and effectiveness of colloidal silver. For now, we’ll focus on the benefits. So what can colloidal silver do? Here are a just a few of its incredible health benefits: Proven effective against antibiotic resistant microbes like SARS and MRSA Helps eliminate the streptoccocus and staphloccocus bacteria It can be used for ear infections When used topically, creates a healthy environment for thriving skin by killing bacteria and dissolving pore blocking sebum. Use it topically for yeast infections, oral thrush and jock itch It has anti-tumor properties against MCF-7 human breast cancer cells You can spray it on wounds and infections for faster healing and to minimize scarring Use it regularly to support your immune system Clearly colloidal silver is liquid gold! It is my go to supplement choice for regular health maintenance, just about every sickness from the flu- to strep throat and even topical applications for minor scrapes and burns. My husband and I have reduced our medicine/first aid cabinet to a few boxes of Band-Aids, some hydrogen peroxide and our favorite brand of colloidal silver, Sovereign Silver. So are you surprised that I incorporated and said “liquid gold” into a […]

Get Lucky, Naturally | My Valentine’s Day Secret

Jan 27 2016

With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, there’s a fair chance that you’ve come up with or are looking for ideas for what to do with your partner. Something sexy, perhaps? A massage with essential oil may be exactly what you’re looking for – affordable, intimate, special.     So why not just a massage? Why essential oils? Besides the fact that it makes massages go much smoother, some essential oils are aphrodisiacs, making it the perfect choice for an incredibly romantic night. Some of my personal favorites include: Organic Sweet Almond Oil – light and absorbent, this oil is necessary to carry the essential oils and also nourishes and hydrates skin. Organic Ylang Yiang Oil – as one of the most powerful aphrodisiacs, it increases libido, energy, and eroticism Organic Bergamot Oil – exciting and rejuvenating Organic Jasmine Oil – lifts mood and creates energy; its erogenous effect has been used to treat premature ejaculation   How to give the Perfect Massage You start by warming the oil – running the bottle under hot water will do fine – and then pouring it so it pools on your partner’s back. Before you start, communicate with your partner – ask them where it hurts, what’s tense. This is a time to make it about them. Talk to them, and reassure them that all of their tension will be released. Make sure they are in the most optimal position before you start. It’s actually better if they keep their arms by their side rather than use them to make a pillow for their head. Tuning into their pain, push into their muscles with one hand on top of the other, letting your grip slide in the oil across their back. Allow the oil to guide you. Let its aroma inspire you, and make sure it […]

#MyFaceAfterGrace Skin Care Challenge.

Dec 28 2015

I don’t know about you, but I am counting down the days to January one. New year, new start and many goals in mind. Something about the new year births new ambition in me! Not only will I be kicking myself back into healthy eating, I decided to take it a step further and challenge myself (and you) to some serious skin care commitments with serious results. Over the years, I have become well diverse in the many facets of beauty. Growing up in a salon, attending Aveda for cosmetology, practicing hair and skin for the last decade and eventually creating my own wholesome line of organic beauty products, one thing remains. No matter who you are, where you come from or where you are going, the image of yourself remains crucial for your overall well-being. While I believe that beauty truly does comes from within, it is a fact that your outward opinion of yourself directly affects your inward self. This is called self image. There is overwhelming research showing how ones self image can directly affect everything from daily moods and career success to social status and intimacy behind closed doors. If we know that the way we feel about ourself is directly related to the way we look on the outside, doesn’t it make sense to nurture and protect the organ that covers our entire body? Our skin is an organ that thrives on daily cleansing, exfoliation and nutrient-rich topical food (also known as serum and daily moisturizer). It wasn’t until I started creating and using my own nutritious skin care products that I saw a miraculous change in my skin. Not a day goes by that I am not complimented on my skin. Not my shirt, or the necklace I am wearing, my skin! I can tell you that THAT makes […]

My Sacred Journey of Gratitude and Where You Fit In

Nov 21 2015

I am a Pilgrim. I don’t wear large gold buckles on my hat and shoes, but a pilgrim, I am! A pilgrim by definition is someone who has made a sacred journey. So often people focus on the Pilgrims having a feast with a bunch of Indians instead of how a group of 100 people risked so much to come to a strange new place. They lived off the land and almost starved. If it weren’t for the guidance and generosity of the Native Americans, the Pilgrims probably would not have survived their endeavor. This Thanksgiving, as I continue my own journey, I have special thanks for my Indians. My Indians come in many forms. Family, friends, teachers, animals, even strangers! They are anyone or anything who has contributed to my journey with Grace Green Beauty or my personal journey as an evolving human being. I did not choose some of my Indians, I chose others, and some were strategically placed in my life at a specific time to see me through a specific situation. All orchestrated by God, himself. I am a pilgrim who truly appreciates each and every one of you. Leading my (amazing) husband and me through this journey each day is our awesome God. My strength, my redeemer, my creator, my teacher, my GOD! I am awestruck every day about how God watches over me and blesses me with so much. His guidance I seek, and as I continue to grow in Faith, the guidance comes more and more natural. It’s hard to express the magnitude of my gratefulness. Nick and I are so fortunate to be able to walk this walk under Gods guidance as we share with our children all God has created. Grace Green Beauty will donate 10% of all sales on December 1 […]

Acorns, Squirrels and Grace Green Beauty

Oct 18 2015

At Grace Green Beauty we’re like squirrels. We’re obsessed with acorns. They don’t do much for our skincare products but they sure help us spread the concept of grace. We’ve realized that such a tiny thing can, with a little loving, spread grace as it germinates and grows into a strong, majestic oak tree. As you know, oak trees aren’t just any old tree. They are tall and strong, providing, shade, lumber and truly sturdy limbs for some of the best tree houses a kid can build. They represent truth, stability, wholesomeness and nobility. And it’s really fun to jump in a pile of its leaves. So why are we nuts about acorns and oak trees?  Because the process from germination to growth are the essential elements for how we at Grace Green Beauty spread grace throughout the world. Our companies commitment and standard display the respect we have for Mother Nature. But we want to do more to celebrate the planet and the creatures who inhabit it. So we have started a quiet revolution—one tree at a time. Welcome to GraceGrown: a Living Gift.  Here’s how our special gift to the community works: Children with participating schools, day care centers and church groups collect acorns wherever they can find them. We tell them to look for acorns free of worms, holes and fungus. Kids LOVE harvesting acorns! Next, they perform a “float test” by putting the acorns in a bucket of water and allowing them to settle. Any acorns that float or are mushy are considered “bad nuts”. The kids determine the best acorns and toss the others.  The children germinate the remaining acorns by placing them in plastic bags full of saw dust and store them in the refrigerator. This process is known as stratification, which is simply exposing a […]

It’s Time to Give Chickens More Respect

Sep 27 2015

            For years chickens have been given a bum rap. They are the subject of countless jokes about crossing the road, being afraid and enduring questionable parentage. Do we really care which came first?  The chicken or the egg? To our family, chickens are, well, family.  All 10 of them. They cluck around our back yard to the delight of the neighborhood children who flock to see them daily. In fact, each of our children and some of their friends “own” each one. So why did we devote the use of our Pack ‘N Play to nurture 10 newly hatched chicks for months? And then convert our son’s playhouse into a chicken coop? It’s all about giving grace to nature. We feed the best grains we can to our hens. No GMOs for these ladies! In turn, we get free range chicken eggs, one of the best sources of protein you can find. We are also assured of eating antibiotic-free eggs packed with Vitamin A, E and Beta Carotene. This is a pretty sweet bonus since the nation is starting to face an egg shortage. I have to admit that I love watching our chickens dance around our backyard. They don’t exactly do the chicken dance, but they actually look like they are having fun strutting around. They are very social, smart and true extroverts. That’s probably why I find them wandering into our house so often. Whoever thought that owning chickens would give us natural weed eaters and grass mowers, not to mention gratis fertilizer! And you thought the only benefit was eggs, didn’t you! I also notice that they actually take care of each other and are totally aware of their surroundings. Did you know that chickens talk to their chicks while still in […]

Jump And The Net Will Appear | Grace Makes Headlines Twice In One Week

Sep 01 2015

Just a few short weeks ago, I took the leap into Grace Green Beauty full time. Walking away from the security, familiarity, and general ease of working behind the salon chair wasn’t an easy decision. In fact, to most people… it seemed a bit crazy. And it IS a bit crazy, but nothing worth anything comes easy. Crazy is good! When taking risks, my mom has always told me “Tempal just take the leap… the net will appear”. So… I took the leap. Nothing solidifies our (Nick and I) decision to make this leap better than TWO local news stations featuring Grace Green Beauty within the first two weeks of our move. Take a minuite to celebrate with us! {{CHEERS}} I had a great morning sharing my products on live TV, Channel 19 News. Grace Green Beauty on fox19 news (click here to view our segment)   A big thanks to WCPO Channel 9 for the wonderful article. Eileen Fritsch was a pleasure to meet and I thank her for her awesome article. Grace Green Beauty Channel 9 (click here for the full article)   Peace, Love and GRACE, tempal grace
