An Etsy Find: Good4You, Q+A with Jes and a little giveaway

There's nothing that excites me most than getting my heart sparked up by those whose passion goes beyond what eyes could see. You must have discovered Good4You during your long hours of browsing Etsy (admit it, it keeps you glued to your seat right?). Owned by an inspirational woman, Jes, she creates all her handmade herbal salves, teas, bath & beauty products in Cataumet, MA-USA. She spends her time gathering wild-crafted herbal plants from abandoned fields to appreciate gifts of the earth. Looking at all the plants she has collected, the fields must be pretty heavenly. Also, not only Jes has a passion in herbalism, but she is quite the artist (check out her Tumblr and Orange Peel Project)! I just adore her. I don't think I have never been this pushed to get back into drawing again.. I miss my beloved charcoals and get my hands and apron dirty all over. That, and also my mum hysterically screaming from across the hallway to tell me it's time to have dinner while I'm losing myself in my black and white canvas. I would say one moment, please. Sometimes I forget the simple things in life could make me the happiest.

  1. I love Good4You! I love using / eating / drinking her products. I may or may not see results --like how I expect my usual beauty products to perform -- but it gives me a sense of calm and a ray of sunlight in my heart especially when I see the illustrations on the packaging. :)

    I followed you on bloglovin' -- i thought I already did! :/

    Which ones are your favorite, btw?

    1. Hi Vivi! To be honest, I have never tried her products but I'. planning to get some for myself while we're sending off presents to the giveaway winners. I consume superfood (similar to what's contained in her products) and I notice a big difference in my energy level and also my mood. As for tea, her tea sounds so gorgeous. Judging by the reviews, people love them too. I suppose with tea, it never really does anything to me in terms of 'internal health' but the whole tea ritual really calms me down. However saying that, there's this "Immunity" tea, and when I feel ill I consume it 2-3x a day and the next day I would feel so much better. I also amp up my Vitamin C on that day as well though. So, in my experience, they're really good supplements to amp up my nutrients on top of eating healthy food. I much prefer that than eating pills.

      Isn't her illustration just adorable? The reason I'm doing a Q+A with her and giveaway, the least I can do is to spread the word and support her. I am just so starstruck by her passion, so much! From picking flowers, self-study herbalism, putting together packages and her devotion to other hobbies such as music and drawings, somehow she still manages to incorporate all that and show that into her brand. The brand is her. I love that. It seriously makes me want to run off and go chase my passion.

      Tee-hee, thanks Vivi for following! I hope you win it :)

    2. Try the green powder or whatitscalled.. Lol.. it's something like "super green food" or "green superfood" with dried wheatgrass (there is also a gluten-free version) and dried mixed berry powder, etc. I sometimes even use it on my face as a green detox mask. I'm gonna buy soon because I've been doing a lot more smoothies lately and I'm really missing it. So fresh and filled with love. :)
