The Giveaway winner is #10: Nettie Black!
Congratulations, Nettie! You will be getting an email from me so I can get your mailing address.
Thank you, everyone, for participating!
I am so excited to bring you this wonderful giveaway from Lusa Organics, a local Viroqua business specializing in organic body and baby care products that we love and adore in our home. Handcrafted by a family not much different from our own, Lusa’s products are safe, really effective, and have this luxurious feel that comes with using something utterly real. But don’t take my word for it – several of Lusa’s products have been declared the best by Mothering magazine, and deservedly so.
While Lusa offers an entire line of products, I especially love their intensely-fragrant soaps, deliciously-smelling lip balms, and their award-winning diaper ointment that I’ve been using on my various babies for years. If you wanna give these a try, they can be purchased directly from Lusa’s website, the Amazon, and various independent retailers.
And this is the family behind the company – Rachel, Pete, and their kids, Lupine and Sage (hence the name LuSa):
In addition to running her very successful business, Rachel homeschools her two children and authors a popular crafting and parenting blog, Clean, which deserves a few words of its own. While filled to the brim with fun and practical tutorials on things like homemade toothpaste and tonic water, Rachel’s blog especially stands out through her articles on raising capable, confident children in the atmosphere of peaceful communication, joy, and a whole lot of projects. I personally find it to be an immense source of inspiration, so please run, don’t walk to check it out.
Now for the fun part:
The products that I am giving away today, courtesy of the soap
queen herself, are my personal favorites:
A bar of handcrafted Lusa soap, above, which is just sublime…
And our favorite diaper ointment (my young son used to lovingly call it “the butt soap” and requested – no, demanded it at the slightest sign of discomfort). This wonderfully gentle, versatile product is pure magic in more than one application – in addition to soothing diaper rash like nobody’s business, it also works wonders on weather-chapped cheeks and chins – a common affliction this time of year.
Just leave a comment telling me you are interested!
