Eden Fashion Boutique & Fangboner Farms: A Match Made in Heaven

At Fangboner Farms, our mission isn't just to bring quality, naturally derived products to our customers, it's also to do it sustainably. We reuse packaging when possible, and we repurpose what could easily be thought of as trash in order to beautify our space. As such, we naturally like to align ourselves with businesses that have a similar philosophy, which is why we are so pleased to announce our new partnership with Eden Fashion Boutique in Bowling Green! You'll find our products there, along with other local makers. 

Eden's own business model has changed over time to include high quality consignment-based fashion along with new boutique items. Now they've decided to take their passion for reduction of waste and paired it with a desire to promote local businesses that do the same. You can read more about the new direction they started exploring last year in this article from Toledo City Paper. Getting our products into businesses that have ethical practices is a big part of how Fangboner Farms functions; it's these community partnerships that help small businesses thrive and make sustainable practices more common.

Visit Eden when you get a chance! It's a super fun shopping experience for anyone who is into both fashion and local wares like ours.

Eden Fashion Boutique, 186 S. Main St., Bowling Green. 10am-6pm. Monday-Friday. 10am-5pm, Saturday. 419-601-8611. edenfashionboutiqe.com.

3 Ways to Set Intentions for 2021

3 Ways to Set Intentions for 2021

With the pandemic still in full swing, many of us are still doing much of our work remotely, making it difficult to create a work-life balance. Setting intentions to get things done without letting work bleed too heavily into your personal life can be a challenge. Below we've listed 3 different ways you can use products from our farm to set a routine in 2021.

1. Smudging - if you don't know what smudging is all about, here is an explanation from a previous blog. Basically, lighting these sage smudge sticks purifies the air and helps keep your workspace calm but efficient.

2. Chamomile/mint tea - The chamomile is calming, while the mint helps keep you alert and energized, two very important parts of a productive-yet-calm work day!

3. Aromatherapy - nothing sets the tone for day like the perfect scent. Try any of our soy candles for a nice pick-me-up, but we like the combo offered in our rosemary/mint/lavender candle for when you want to get things done while still staying zenned out.

Lavender has to be one of the most touted herbal remedies for stress. It's soothing aroma and healing properties make it a valuable addition to your natural remedy routine. At Fangboner Farms, we've added lavender to many of our products, including our lemon balm/mint/lavender tea blend and, one of our more recent additions, our butterfly pea flower/lemongrass/lavender blend

Along with its stress reducing qualities, lavender is also anti-inflammatory and anti-fungal. It's even a deterrent for hair loss, a source of Vitamins A, C, and K, plus calcium and iron. 

"With all the current issues surrounding us today - from the pandemic and social issues to politics and personal relationships - lavender tea is a great way to relieve anxiety, depression, stress, and other mood disorders," says Dr. Kristal. "It can also improve sleep, menstrual cramps, and your immune system."
