Health Habitat Prepares for more Holiday Snow!

Health Habitat/Carson's Herbals isTHE fighter of colds, flu, sore throats, depression & congestion. Using Ear Cones, Mulled Wine, Essiac, Essential Oils, Colloidal Silver, Organic Bulk Herbs, Breathe Easy, Get Well Soon and much more, we're on your team this Holiday Season!

Health Habitat/Carson's Herbals in Blue Jay California is gearing up for even MORE snow this week, even as Christmas fast approaches. We've stocked up on extra Ear Cones, Essiac, Neti Pots,VSC, Colloidal Silver, Breathe Easy, Cayenne,Get Well Soon, Rhodiola and even...drum roll please....Mulling Spices! Ya just gotta be prepared folks, to get thru this season of flu, congestion, depression and oh yeah, the festivities.

Those Ear Cones do wonders for getting the wax out, relieving sinus pressure and also providing fun for the entire family! Everyone gets to see just what you've been keeping in those ears all this time.

Essiac has been around for a long time, and for good reason: it detoxes what ails ya! So party on, but be prepared for the after holiday remorse. Many more uses, but that was the only funny one.

Neti Pots have been tauted on Oprah by Dr. Oz for very good reasons: they work! Clearing out your sinus passages safely and effectively just became the funnest thing you can do with your nose since the '80s!

VSC & Get Well Soon! are 2 tried and true flu/cold/sore throat FIGHTERS! Both can be used preventitively (beforehand) or during an illness. They have some amazing ingredients that boost the immune system and boot that bug right out onto the street. To that end, I'll just throw in the Colloidal Silver into the mix. Safe enough for babies, yet tough enough to ward off the cooties. Great for pets too!

Breathe Easy gets a slightly brighter red font, 'cuz it's just that good. Contains stuff like Golden Seal, Echinacea, Yarrow, Myrrh, Yerba Santa, and plenty more herbs that help you BREATHE, fight congestion, and gets rid of the bug that ate you. Actually works on strep throat too! Bronchitis and other respiratory issues as well.

CAYENNE: And not just any cayenne. This is 400 million heat units of powdered HEAT! What can you do with this monster? Glad you asked!

Need to go out into that cold snow? Cold feet? Add 1/2 teaspoon of this herb to your shoes or boots and presto! Your feet are going to feel so much warmer, your circulation will be improved and members of the opposite sex will be drawn to you like moths to a flame....wait that's another product! BUT REALLY! This stuff works so very well to heat your feet that we'd really like to have you give it a try. It's the hottest cayenne on the mountain.

Rhodiola is a very nice addition to your diet at any time of the year, but now is the best! Not only does it lift depression and offer a gentle boost of energy, tests have found that if you add Rhodiola to your diet and excercise program you can lose more weight than without it. By up to 11%. So, ya lose weight, feel better and have more energy. There doesn't seem to be a down side there!

Hot Mulling Spices help to make the season BRIGHT! These Organically grown goodies are just one example of our full line of bulk herbs and spices.
Add just a few tablespoons to some hot apple cidar, hot mulled wine or BY THEMSELVES in Hot WATER for a wonderful and healthy holiday taste treat!
Not only do they taste great, they offer the added bonus of clearing your sinuses, helping with runny noses and aid digestion. They are just one of the examples of how herbs just keep on giving!

Thanks for checking in with us and please let us extend our very warmest Christmas and Holiday greetings. We'd like to remind you to come and see us anytime. Call ahead if you're not sure about the driving conditions.
Oh, and you're probabaly wondering what Mr. Steve's favorite organic herb is, right?
Hops! Ice Cold Rocky Mountain Hops! And oh yes, he uses Essiac like it's going out of style!!

Parade Comes to Main Street Blue Jay

This year our town decided to rename our highway to Main Street. That's because our little mountain town is very homey, quaint and just like many Main Streets across America.
We've got the friendly barbershop next door to our super friendly herb, health and supplement store. We've got the local bank down the street, a couple of small town diners.Betty's across the street has greeting cards, gifts, lotto and even EGGS! A furniture shop, candle shop, even a bird seed shop!
More than that, we've got character. we're just brimming with CHARACTER, and well, a few characters too! This really shows up well at holiday time in the winter. We have, for your viewing pleasure, the shortest parade in the world!! This year it takes place on Dec 6th at 2:30 in the afternoon. Our locals and guests put on a great show for the entire family. And Santa shows up at the end and stays late for pictures. You can get some hot cocoa across the street and mulling spices at our local herb shop....Health Habitat in case you forgot! Many of our store fronts are offering great specials this year and you are cordially invited to participate in this day! Call for more information: 909-337-2344. see you soon!

One more pic of truck

This is a cool 1 ton truck and be advised, it does not have a radio.


Customer Came in with this truck

I hear this really old horn and I look out the door and Carol pulled up with this truck. She is a great lady, always fighting for animal rights or whatever injustice is going on in our crazy world.

She says it really jams in a straight line but feels like it will roll over when she turns.

Well Spring is in the air as the Sun is shinning and the weather is great. I can not tell you how many people come into the store during the winter time with depression or the blues. They want to take an herb or pill to help them out. Get out and exercise!

Remember we change to daylight savings time on March 9 which is the weekend following this one.

I have been told that we can expect weather in the next month and a half so it is time to get out and take a simple walk for 15 minutes. Recharge those batteries and just soak it all in.

Remember where we live, in the fresh air and for some a slower pace of life. Be thankful for all we have say a prayer every once in awhile. I am thankful that we do not have any traffic lights.

Oh I want warn everyone that the CHP is out and I almost got busted. I will tell the story at a later date.

So get your butt's out there and start to feel better. Turn off the TV and take a walk.

Chickens Can't Fly!

Don't spend major time with minor people.

If there are people in your life that continually disappoint you, break promises, stomp on your dreams, too judgmental, have different values and don't have your back to cry on during difficult times... that is not a friend.

To have a friend, be a friend. Sometimes in life as you grow, your friends will grow or go.

Surround yourself with people who reflect your values, goals, interests and lifestyle.

When I think of any of my successes, I am thankful to God from whom all blesings flow, and to my family and friends and friends that enrich my life.

Over the years my addres book has changed because I changed for the better.

At first you think that you are going to be alone, but after a while new people show up in your life that life so much sweeter and easier to endure.

Remember what your elders used to say, "Birds of a feather flock together."

If you're and eagle, don't hang aroud chickens:
Chickens Can't Fly!

Well, this is the 5th of February, and so far this year we've had more snow, ice and rain than the past 5 years. We've become accustomed to waking up in the mornings to yet another foot of snow. The streets are treacherous, parking is limited, and hard to get into, and the roads are very narrow. But this is our mountain, and part of why we love it so much.
With all of this bad weather my New Years' goals have been put on the back least the part about getting to the gym. Oh, and about eating better. Well I am, just more of it!
I know that I am not alone in this, as my kick boxing instructor came into the store yesterday and said her personality was actually changing without being able to do the classes! I know that the snow shoveling is doing some good for the arms, and cardio, but it's just not the same as being with the gang. I am looking forward to getting back there ASAP!
NEWS FLASH: I am starting to teach a new class at the store on Saturdays. Cooking with Whole Grains, and other Healthy Ideas. It will incorporate not only cooking and nutritional facts, but also how to get more herbs and other nutrients into your diet. It will be fun and hands on.
So join us at 1PM at the Health Habitat in Blue Jay.
