American Made & A Giveaway Too!!!

We just love hearing testimonials about our products. We put so much time, thought, and research into each product we develop - hearing feedback from our customers is just the same as when someone tells you your baby is smart, cute, and so very lovable and adorable. Our products are our babies – each one of them. One of these days when I get all techno-savvy with this blog stuff, I will include a page on testimonials. For now, I will share some with you from time to time. So, here comes one:

I actually came across this tesimonial from a blog. We met Jacq during the Blanco Lavender Festival. I knew she was planning to start a blog, but didn’t know she had posted about this until the other day. Please check it out. After you read it, some of you may be thinking - oh great! Now you tell me - I needed to know about this during the heat of summer, not now! But I'll just ask you to keep this in your memory bank for next summer!

Speaking of other blogs, I have to share this great blog with you. It’s called Made in the USA and it’s so informative! Finally someone has made it easy for us to know what is made in the good ole’ USA! I am all about staying local, and this blog makes it easy to do so. It lists a number of great products that are true blue – as in red, white & blue! We are honored that Hummingbird Farms was highlighted in this weeks post. Go check it out here. In fact, check it out a couple of times over the next few days. You might just find an opportunity to register for a Hummingbird Farms giveaway!!!

I'll close with one final testimonal. Now some of you might not call this one a real testimonial because, well – the testimony is coming from one of my best friends who I’ve known practically my whole life. You’re thinking, yeah right – a testimony from a friend, how impressive. But you just have to know my friend – she’s a this is how the cow at the cabbage type, no doubt. She does indeed call it like she sees it. So her testimony is in fact a rock solid testimonial:

When we were out in Marathon, my little girls would scream when I put Eucerine Calming Crème on their faces and other chapped areas. So duh, I realized, why not afford my little precious children the same courtesy I do myself and put Hummingbird Farms lotion all over them. They didn’t mind a bit and they also smelled heavenly. I don’t know why I thought the Eucerin that says it’s good for children would have been better. Your stuff is all natural. It made all the difference in the world. So I need more. And I’m going to start using the body wash for their baths too.

I’m in such a good mood now! It’s so nice to know that people are enjoying our products, and even nicer to know that they will take the time to write a note about it. It’s been quite a roller-coaster ride the last few years – this makes it all worth it! (I'll share more with you later)

Great testimonials! You're right, it's always nice to hear good things about our "babies".

Have a wonderful weekend.

Well, one of the aforementioned precious angels, Catherine, (the rashy one, the one whose fair, sensitive skin gets especially chapped and who made me realize her great need for Hummingbird Farms Body Lotion) now , has the most interesting new rash. Just on her cheeks and the tops of her arms from the elbow to her shoulders. My expert sleuthing has determined this rash has appeared right in the places she probably applied some "lesser-than," artificial lotion that's still lurking around our home. Either that or it's the exact spot where she rubbed Ranch dressing all over herself (which also gives her a rash by the way)

I'll let you know if and when it disappears and also if an application of the real deal Hummingbird Farms lotion actually helps her really strange rash. But if some other, more experienced mother has knowledge that a rash that appears on your cheeks and the tops of your arms above the elbow is the tell-tale sign of some strange disease, please let me know!!

OK, so it's not just a skin allergy. It got a little too ugly even for Hummingbird Farms lotion and a little research has revealed she has Fifth Disease!! If you do a search on the internet, you'll see the pictures and that's exactly what Catherine looks like. Apparently once you get the rash you're not contagious anymore and there's no treatment for it. Who knew there would be daysl like these?

Lavender Chick said...

Whew!!! For a minute there I thought you were going to tell me that my fab lotion caused the rash... I mean - hold on, let me start over: I am SO SORRY to hear that Catherine has Fifth Disease; I'm just glad it's nothing serious and she's going to be okay. Fifth Disease? Who knew??

Seriously, I hate that the little cutie has a nasty rash. And to your point, sometimes my little miracle in a bottle just can't deliver on every ailment.

Now out of complete curiousity I'm going to have to google Fifth Disease. You know how I am - I'm one of those strange people that enjoys looking at medical books and disgusting skin diseases. It's pure pleasure for me.
