Raise A Healthy Hard Candy For April
April is this Founder’s favorite time of the year. Partly due to the beginning of Spring and the weather warms from dreary cold and flowers bloom but also because it’s my birthday month. I have always loved celebrating and honoring my birthday with my family and friends. The year that the pandemic was in full effect was the year that a lot of people celebrated virtually or spent time quietly. This year, however, is a milestone birthday and one that I’ve recognized as a gift. I am grateful that I have made it to 50 years young. I started a business in my late 40’s and during the unknown state of the world that was 2020, we are pushing forward with such tenacity of grit and determination to continue to help as many people as we can. I am grateful for my husband and his reminders of how beautiful and loved I am; everyday. I am grateful to be working on self-care; my yoga practice, remembering the milestones, the joys, the connections I am making everyday in raising our dynamic children together. Let's raise a glass...a cup of tea...um, I mean, a healthy organic hard candy that is Ginger Green Tea Blend, our Candy of the Month for April.

The anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties of ginger is key to keeping healthy including Turmeric as shown in the article in Journal of Toxicology with co-author Ayodele Jacob Akinyemi.

Baja (Lemon, Ginger, Black Pepper, Turmeric and cayenne).
