 Today is Earth Day so spread your love of the earth and plant a tree, or two.  You receive 10 flowering trees, The Tree Book, and 33% discount off over a 100 tree and shrubs with a $10 membership to the Arbor Day Foundation, and support The Canopy Project by planting those trees!  National Arbor Day, April 26... Plant your trees and do your part to add green to the earth! 


5 Benefits of planting 1 tree:

1. Improves our sense of well-being, and increases blood oxygenation.

2. Doing good raises endorphins. Gain health by giving back. 

3. Each new tree provides refuge for wildlife

4. Trees planted on the west side of the home can reduce energy costs by as much as 3% in 5 years by breaking colds winds, and helps cool your home in warm months

5. Increase the value of your home by as much as 20% 

“The net cooling effect of a young, healthy tree is equivalent to ten room-size air conditioners operating 20 hours a day.” —U.S. Department of Agriculture

Honey & Beeswax

     When the founder of Shelissa Organics was a child, her fondest memories are of spending time on her family's farm on the Chesapeake Bay learning how to harvest honey from the hives with her grandfather. It harkens back to the days when children ran through fields until sunset, running into the house with handfuls of wildflowers, rare stones collected in their pockets, and dirt on their hands. To this day, she drizzles honey on her breakfast or in her tea everyday.

Honey and beeswax have long been documented for healing sore throats and for boosting the immune system. Seasonal allergy suffers are wise to eat local honey to reduce allergies and a teaspoon in a cup of warm milk can calm a cough. For centuries, honey has been used as an exfoliant for the body and gentle enough to use on the face and scalp. For 19 years Shelissa Organics® has crafted extraordinary products with ethically and sustainably harvested beeswax and locally found ingredients. Our time-honored process and unique formulas produce goods without parabens, petroleum, phthalates, sodium lauryl sulfate, or non-GMO ingredients.
