Just a reminder that we have a 2nd website up and running where we post items for sale..

The idea is to eventually have a website that sells made in North America and handmade items… 🙂

We understand the time and energy that goes into hand made items and in running a website or a blog… Sometimes it is tough to do both … 🙂

For folks who would love another platform to show case their hand made, made in North America (Canada/USA) items and products but don’t have the time, energy or inclination to have a website/blog of their own… We at SGC2 are happy to showcase your items for you.. 🙂

If you are interested in our services we offer two low fee options… 🙂 One is on a commission basis … the other is on a fixed fee/time basis…

We look forward to hearing from you … 🙂

Have a fabulous day…

Dry Brushing for the Lymph System with Essential Oils
Dry Brushing for the Lymph System with Essential Oils

Several essential oils show promise in preventing or reversing imbalances that accumulate in adipose and lymph tissue. Grapefruit, frankincense, cypress, and rose otto oils contain abundant amounts of monoterpenes, a class of botanical chemicals.Breasts contain an abundance of lymph vessels that support the circulatory system in maintaining proper fluid balance. The health of our lymphatic systems is intimately connected to our breast health. Lymphatic flow can be obstructed by tight bras, poor posture, lack of exercise, shallow breathing, and tight neck, shoulder, chest and back muscles……More  (To view in our Canada Store click here.)

Cells in our breasts can regenerate.
Breast massage with specific botanical oils is a simple step to keep our breasts healthy. The skin on the chest is thin and breast tissue contains a great deal of fat, which readily absorbs the protective blessings of lipophilic essential oils and infused-herbal oils. Working synergistically, these botanicals may prevent and reverse cysts, rejuvenate cells, and increase immune cell activity….More  (To view in our Canada Storeclick here)

A positive surprise
At first the smell didn´t strike me as appealing but after using it for the first time something happened. Now I find the smell so grounding and foresty. I really love the smell now. I think every woman needs this on their nightstand to have a daily ritual to give her breasts some love and attention, if only for acouple of minutes. I´ve seen great results with breast massage  

“This breast oil is amazing! Just like everything else I have tried from living libations 🙂 I rub this on my breasts a couple times a week and every time I do it, I smell so good and I feel so good. I feel like my breasts are really benefiting from the oils in this product and I love the mission behind it. Thanks, Nadine, for everything you do!”

Amazing Difference
“I’d like to make a long overdue comment on Nadine Artemis’ wonderful creation, Breast Massage Oil. I first tried this product in March 2013, just after it became available. The first thing I noticed was the wonderful fragrance, but moreover is how soft it makes my hands feel just after using it. The palms of my hands so incredibly soft and smooth, as is the skin on my breasts. I have large breasts and unfortunately I also have stretch marks. Not just from the large breasts themselves but also from how large they became while breastfeeding. The stretch marks started to resemble scars in the way that the skin became raised, keiloiding, had occurred. After approximately 6 months of using the Breast Massage Oil I realized something was changing. I’m not really sure what this beautifully fragrant oil does to the tissues inside my breasts, but I can tell you that the skin surface itself has improved. The most amazing difference is that the raised area for the stretch marks that seemed to keloid has shown reduction, and do not rise above the skin. There are still some white lines but not scar tissue like anymore! I love this oil and use it every morning after showering!” 
Living Libations’ Lymph+Tonic is an undiluted blend of circulation-enhancing essential oils that effectively generate lymphatic flow throughout the body. Used on its own or in combination with dry brushing, Lymph + Tonic helps the rivers of the lymphatic system flow fluidly and function at optimum levels.

what a wonderful way to wake up each morning…a few delicious drops for sublime body brushing!

rosy skin everywhere

I just started using this and it makes dry brushing so much more effective.  It brings all the blood to the surface and you can feel the lymph moving….I feel like my whole body glows after using this!

Great with massage
I use with dry brushing but also after a shower I mix 3 drops in some cocanut oil or other favorite creams and enjoy a full body massage-it’s good for you all over especially the lymph nodes

my face is glowing

Received my items in the mail and I was so excited!! Thanks for sending it so quick! Cell serum is a new product for me and after using it tonight my face is glowing and my love commented that I looked lovely without my makeup and smelled divine!!!! Thanks for creating such beautiful products!

Delicious Nectar!

The best product that LL makes. This serum smells fantastic, awakens the senses, brightens my skin and gives me a rosy glow immediately. I like to exfoliate my face with baking soda then apply this serum. It softens lines and plumps my skin. The Cinnamon gives a pop and a tingle to my face, a great wake up in the morning! I also like to apply this after a day outside in the sun, it gives my skin a drink and instantly makes sun kissed skin seem less thirsty. The serum goes on dry and does not leave an oily touch. Feels very nutritional. The best ever!

Glowing Happy Skin!
The cell serum has really impressed me! I am 24 and have been converting to only natural and safe products on my skin for the past 5 years. This is one of my favorites by far! I used to use a $170 bottle of skinceuticals vitamin c serum (for extra protection) but switched to the cell serum and am thrilled with this decision!! My skin glows more than ever before and drank this up immediately. Skin feels so soft and this also brightens the skin. Smells DELICIOUS and fresh. Skin may get a little pink when first absorbing because the ingredients are very warming, but you can feel it working into the skin. Beautifully made. You can mix a little with the Sea Buckthorn oil if desired. I wouldn’t go without this or the All Seeing Eye Cream! Both will enable you to wake up with a flawless glow. 
Our nourishing Night Nectar illuminates skin cells from the inside out. Infuse your skin with repairing botanicals while you dream of toning regeneration. Relax in slumber while this hard-working nectar takes the night shift!

For it is in the dew of little things that the skin finds its morning and is refreshed. Living Libations activating Night Nectar penetrates deeply into the dermis, illuminating skin cells from the inside out. Apply to fine lines, wrinkles, and any area of the skin that yearns for extra succulence…..More (To view in our Canada Store click here)

Beautiful Blend

I just received the large sized bottle of this after taking a gamble that it would be a great product just looking at the ingredients-it is even better than I expected.  I’ve tried Dew Dab and Zippity Dew Dab in my night routine in the past and benefitted from each but I love the addition of the Broccoli Seed oil which makes the consistency a bit thicker and easier to control coming out of the bottle. In one application my skin has a healthy glow and feels nicely moisturized. It has a lovely light smell-the chamomile and Frankincense really stand out. Delicious!

Love This Moisturizing “Nectar”
I mix this with the Rose Glow Serum at night and I love the way my skin glows after wards, it leaves my skin moisturized but not oily, Thank you for making such beautiful skin care products! 

Sunny floral-fruit cheer….. More (To view in our Canada Store click here)

Happy happy happy
Bergamot is one of my favorite oils. It is a total mood lifter. If I smell it deeply, it smells like Black Tea. I use bergamot if I am feeling sad, lethargic, irritated or angry. I don’t know how but somehow, it lifts all the bad moods away. It is a guaranteed happy maker.
Bergamot Butterfly
This essence carried me through visions of a butterfly in still flight in the center of my heart, effortlessly beating it’s wings in perfect rhythm with my original purpose.

Nadine, the Yarrow is magnificent!  I can’t stop looking at it or dispersing it in bath salts ( so pretty ), room sprays and in jojoba!  It made a nice addition to my little gifts… And as a room spray in a clear glass bottle (with cape chamomile, benzoin, lemon, lavender and friends).
Living Libations Labdanum Absolute is a warm, rich, potent absolute commonly used in meditation and spiritual quests.

Dilute in virgin coconut oil and add a drop to smoothies, honey, chocolate making, and desserts. ……More (To view in our Canada Store click here)

Deep, earthy, grounding
“This is my first oil from Living Libations and it smells so earthy and deep. I put a dab on each wrist in the morning and it grounds me all day! Definitely not for those wanting light, fresh, flowery. To me it smells a little rougher and tougher, which is a nice change!  I would say this could be just as nice on a man as on a woman.”

Our organic Roses Over Geranium Essential Oil combines the regulating effects of Rose Otto with the immune-boosting power of geraniums. Both oils contain potent skin healing properties, making this co-distillation a popular treatment for broken blood vessels, capillaries, varicose veins, spider veins,cellulite, acne, and oily skin. This oil may give skin a gorgeous, natural glow by stimulating blood circulation and removing toxins from the body……..More (To view in our Canada Store

Nadine and Ron, her partner and Chocolate Yoga guru, are honorbound to sharing their abundances of knowledge through their botanical channel, dedicated to serving the highest health to all who care to embark.

It is your responsibility to get your product to your customer as we won’t have the physical item.. you choose the delivery method, Canada Post, UPS, pick up, delivery etc… 🙂 

  • Customers will contact you directly from the contact information you provide…
  • Or we are happy to be a go-between for you and your customer… they can email us and we will forward to you… 🙂

What can you share with us?  

“Consignment” products need to home/hand made, hopefully using mostly Canadian/US (North American) components. We understand that sourcing North American components can be a bit of a challenge, so don’t panic if you can’t.. Please keep in mind this a “family friendly” website :)… Any product that is environmentally friendly or encourages kindness to, and respect of, mother earth is also welcomed. Products that invoke happiness, kindness and fun are eagerly accepted. 🙂 

How much will this cost you, why is there a fee, and how does it work? 

Our affordable “fee” or consignment percentage will be mutually agreed upon by us and you at the time of “sign up”. We strive to be fair to everyone… (us included) :).. it takes us time to post your products and we do so with care and positive intention & we hope you understand our reasoning  🙂 

Please email us with your questions, concerns and comments, we will get back to you as soon as we can… 🙂 

Here is the link to our 2nd website… 🙂 Only a few products posted right now, but stay tuned for more… 🙂

Spring Cleaning Feng Shui

Now that spring has officially sprung, it’s time to clear out the clutter and make way for a brand new season of growth. Here are 10 Feng Shui tips designed to bring renewed energy into your life — just look up the area you want to improve most!

Love and romance: Clear out the space beneath your bed
If you’d like a happier, healthier love life, look under the bed. Relocate any items you use regularly, then discard or donate the rest. By keeping the space beneath your bed totally clear, you’ll resolve any deceptions, hidden resentments, and childhood traumas that have affected your romantic relationships.

Communication: Erase old messages
Do you feel misunderstood or unappreciated? Then get rid of old emails, texts and voicemails. Letting messages accumulate can make it difficult to get your wants and needs across. If you want to hang on to messages for sentimental reasons, print them out or record them onto a CD or flash drive.

Family: Put stray photos into scrapbooks
If you’re struggling with family squabbles, put stray photos into albums. Frame ones that conjure up good memories, and display them in the gathering spaces of your home, like the living room and kitchen. Keep family photos out of the bedroom, especially if you want to maintain healthy boundaries with relatives.

Health and wellness: Clear out your kitchen cabinets
Do you feel tired, unhealthy or depressed? Then clean out your cupboards, refrigerator and freezer. Throw away any items that are past their freshness. Donate any canned goods that you don’t want to charity. If you are really determined to improve your health, purge your kitchen entirely of junk food.

Support: Donate nine items to charity
Does life seem like a constant struggle for you? Do you feel like you’re all alone? Collect nine serviceable items that you no longer want or use, then give them to charity. Of course, you don’t have to limit yourself to just nine items — the more stuff you give away, the easier it will be to attract the support you need.

Esteem: Empty out your medicine cabinet
Suffering from low self-esteem? Clear out your medicine cabinet! Get rid of any outdated prescriptions, old cosmetics and unwanted grooming products. Be honest about what you use and what you don’t. By streamlining your medicine cabinet and vanity area, you’ll project a much more confident image.

Time to enjoy life: Scrub the bathroom until it shines
Do you have time for the activities you love? If not, you need to scrub your bathroom from top to bottom. Bathrooms represent self-care. When yours are sparkling and clean, you’ll find more time for the people and things that give you joy. Splurge on new towels, bath mats and shower curtains while you’re at it.

Friendship: Stop toting garbage around
If people accuse you of being overly judgmental, lighten your personal load. Clean out your purse, briefcase, book bag and pockets. Don’t forget your wallet! Do this every evening for a week. The more streamlined your portable storage, the easier it will be for you to form new friendships and sustain old ones.

Inspiration: Wash your windows
If you feel uninspired or lack motivation, wash your windows. Windows represent your outlook on life. If yours are clean and sparkling, it will be easier to find your heart’s desire. This is a great cure for people who are in dead-end jobs or suffer from depression. Hire a professional if you’re not up to this labor-intensive task.

Energy: Empty out a single drawer
If you’re caught in a rut, do yourself a favor and empty out one drawer. It could be anywhere: your desk, your bureau, your kitchen. Throw away anything you don’t need, and relocate the rest to other areas. Leave the drawer empty for an entire week. Soon, you’ll find the energy to launch a full-fledged spring cleaning!
