GIVEAWAY: Tender Loving Care for Lymies

My crafty sister, proprietor of the soap-making business lavande de bois, has been with me through thick and thin. She was the first of family and friends to read Cure Unknown to understand what was happening to me. And, no stranger to chronic mystery illness herself, eight months after my diagnosis, she also tested positive for Lyme and has started her own journey back to health.

Inspired by the Lyme Disease walk I did with the other SpiroChicks last fall, she decided to make a soap especially for Lymies--people sensitive to fragrance and chemicals--and donate $1 of the sale of every soap to the Turn the Corner Foundation.

And, one day when my brain was actually working, I came up with the name for her: TLC Bar. Handmade with the healing properties of lavender and calendula, it's tender loving care for your skin and spirit.* I hope you check it out and feel good that by purchasing the soap you're making a donation to our cause. Click here to purchase online.

AND, we're hosting a TLC bar giveaway. Winner will be selected at random. Enter by submitting a comment, linking to our blog (and tell us in the comments section), or subscribing via email. Contest ends one week from today: 2/24/10 at midnight.

*Ingredients: calendula infused olive oil, distilled water, organic palm oil, coconut oil, sodium hydroxide, castor oil, lavender essential oil, ground calendula, and rosemary oil extract.
