CONGRATULATIONS to Giveaway Winner:  Erin (from Canada) 
(comment 23)
Picture this: sipping a cup of organic herbal tea by candlelight (from your sweet smelling tea infused beeswax candle), while soaking in a bath with relaxing and fragrant herbs, hand blended for you...  
 
 Sounds blissful, yes?
Well, Deborah at Carys Organics can hook you up!
Carys Organics was born with Deborah's daughter Carys (kar-iss, Welsh for 'love'), and Deborah's desire to stay home with her child. Living in a small cabin in the foothills of North Carolina, Deborah (a Celtic harp and voice performer in her pre-child life!) brings her Celtic spirit and the beauty of her mountain home into creating teas and candles which are organic/ clean/ foster healthy living.

Deborah's love of her craft keeps her going, as well as the nourishment of parenting, sharing life with her husband Brock, good food and lots of time outdoors to center and renew herself.  As a family they are preparing for a move to Colorado to further their education and work towards a life goal, nourished by their faith, to work with troubled youth.

She has a hard time choosing a favourite material to work with, citing the many excellent properties of beeswax, including cleaning the air we breathe, the wonderful scent when infused with teas and coffees, and the many ways of presenting it for burning.
But then there are the rows of herbs and spices in their glass jars awaiting blending into the perfect tea!  Tea making is an art requiring knowledge of plants and their properties, alone and when blended together, as well as a fine palette (and a willingness to do a lot of taste tests!) and an eye for colour and appearance.  With names like Rivendell and Ancient Forest the teas call out for you to stop and enjoy a cuppa!
 

Like many of us who parent and work from home, there is a need to care for ourselves. Deborah finds relaxation in a cup of tea (those taste tests!), a mountain hike or a good book.  She also enjoys spending time in the kitchen where ethnic cooking and baking bread serve as therapeutic activities.

As Deborah strives to grow Carys Organics in the coming year, she keeps in sight her core vision of 'simple goodness for everyday life'~ a commitment I know that many of us resonant with for our own lives.  It is with this spirit that each item is handmade with the hope that every cup of tea or candle lit may bring a moment or two of simplicity and care.
 

Be sure to take a good look around Carys Organics for artisan teas and bath teas; beeswax candles, tarts and ornaments; plantable cards; and accessories for tea and candles.  There are new molded candles in the works as well as tea cozies and spiced mug mats (yum!). You can find Carys Organics on Etsy as well.
