On to the Black Friday Sale!

This post may contain affiliate links. Please see my disclosure policy.

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving! I went over to my brother’s house for Thanksgiving and we all – meaning the girls because men apparently have trouble being silly – played a game called HedBanz. It was pretty neat and definitely a great family game. You basically wear a headband and you get a card for it that you can’t see. You then have to guess what you are by asking the other people playing what you are. Like “Am I an animal?” “Can you eat me?” “Do I have hair?” etc. I was a dragon first. Then I was a giraffe. My mom ended up being spaghetti, ketchup and a shirt!


So now that Thanksgiving has come and gone for the year, I suppose it’s time for the shopping to commence. I won’t be braving the malls – I never do having worked in retail at the mall for many years – but I will be shopping online and of course supporting other artisans like myself. For Black Friday this year I’m offering 45% off everything – including sale items – from my shop, Rebecca’s Soap Delicatessen, through November 23rd, 2012 11:59pm ET. Just enter coupon code: BLACKFRIDAY at checkout for the discount on great bath and body products including my Handmade Pumpkin Pie Milk Soap (pictured) that comes wrapped and ready for gift giving or stocking stuffers. Happy shopping!

This month Mountain Rose Herbs is also offering 20% off Organic Raw Cacao Beans. If you recall from my post in January, black tea, dark chocolate and fish can help to reduce stress, depression, and anxiety. Cacao Beans are no exception! Not only do raw cacao beans which not only taste great, but is high flavonoids, antioxidants, vitamins and minerals. Cacao also acts as a natural antidepressant in the body through natural elements that elevate the mood, help increase focus, and give feelings of attraction, pleasure, and excitement. So, what are cacao beans? Cacoa beans are basically raw chocolate and are the seeds of the fruit of the native South American cacao tree that have been dried and fully fermented. They contain no sugar and are a great source of magnesium. To consume cacao beans, you may simple eat them straight. Or you may choose to blend them into smoothies, freeze then eat cold with some raw honey, blend with maca into an herbal tea, blend with a sweetener and nuts for a natural chocolate bar, or crush and add to ice cream as a substitute for chocolate chips!
Also check out Mountain Rose Herbs this month for 20% off herbal bath salts, 20% off red algae salt, 15% off Grateful Heart tea, 15% off Kristine Brown’s Herbal Roots Calendar, 25% off their Lover’s Essential Oil Kit, 25% off Hops Flower essential oil, 20% off Hawthorn Leaf/Flower, 20% off Mugwort, and 20% off Olive Leaf.
