“everyone” has a story … including Scot and his buddy Barney of EO Products

29 Jul

Barney EO 1 We’re back from vacation and back to guest blogs and weekly giveaways and announcing a few winners from the last couple of weeks so… for our first order of business…. Scot Mills of EO Products and the everyone Brand makes his contribution as our CFC weekly guest blogger!  Go Scot….

“Why Cruelty Free EO?
I have to say that while I love the fact that EO products are clean, luxurious and effective, it is as much due to my best friend Barney that I am as enthusiastic about this company as I am.
Let me explain: Barney is a 10lb Toy Fox Terrier. He came from the Marin County CA SPCA, where my wife and I found him amongst a horde of Chihuahuas, which the Humane Society folks had mistaken him for. He looked very out of place amongst their yapping enthusiasm, and his demeanor was one of “I’ll come to the front of the cage if I really have to, but as tired as I am of these roommates and their non-stop yapping, I still don’t want to be led on either!” We really felt that he needed a better place to live.
Long story short, we ended up adopting him, and there is no possible way for either my wife or I to regret it – Barney is the best!
However, when he was turned into the SPCA close to a year earlier, Barney had been found in Novato, Ca, with his little knees so badly out of alignment that he had to drag his hind-quarters around, and he had little or no use of his legs due to his genetic deformity. He had also been abused, and it appeared that he had been born into an environment in which he was not well liked or cared for, and he had been abandoned to wander the streets. Kids had been mean to him (we can tell by his reaction to most kids), and he was very skittish and submissive after all he’d been through.
The SPCA was good enough to pay for the surgery to fix his knees, and he spent about 6 months rehabilitating in San Quentin Prison with their Prisoner Care program; and by the time we found him and brought him to his new home, he was a bit wobbly, but up and around, and beginning to find his confidence as well.
Now here’s the thing which I can’t figure out: Barney is the sweetest, most loving and affectionate little best friend anyone could ever want. He looks at you with those soulful brown eyes, and his little tail wags hello, and it is impossible not to want to scratch his head and tell him how happy he makes you.
Did I mention he says “Orp!” when he yawns?
So how in the world could anyone have been mean to him? How could that have been possible?
Unfortunately, there are those in this world who do not understand that our four-legged friends deserve a pain-free existence; including some manufactures of health and beauty aids, who feel that torturing a defenseless bunny is a fantastic way to find out if a product is safe for humans!
This is but one of the many reasons that EO is a favorite in the industry: A Cruelty Free, Gluten Free, Non GMO Zero-Waste B Corporation, which makes some of the most luxurious, effective, all natural and botanical products available. We use only the finest essential oil blends and food-based elements to generate aromas – NEVER any laboratory generated, overpowering and lingering fragrances; only real, clean plant-based elements – and all manufactured right here in the Marin County – never outsourced/never tested on animals – good for you, good for our furry friends, good for our environment….enjoy!”

 

Scot, what an amazing story in so many different ways!  Thank you for sharing with us and reminding us how good people can be!

A Girl’s Gotta Spa! “Our Story”.

23 Jun
The newest brand to be offered at Cruelty Free Consumer.com

The newest brand to be offered at Cruelty Free Consumer.com

 

Hello today!  Welcome to our Monday Guest Blog/Giveaway once again!  This is our 3rd official “Installment”…(We need a better word… writers block)… please throw us a suggestion!

This week our focus is on a newly discovered company and I’m in love!  The products offered by “A Girl’s Gotta Spa!”are absolutely amazing just as Shannon had told us!  We love her story and being a mom myself…. I can certainly relate!

Below is Shannon’s story from A Girl’s Gotta Spa!…

The concept of A Girl’s Gotta Spa! began 9 years ago this October.
I was 31 years old at the time and a mother of 3 sons (with another to be the apple of my eye in the not so distant future.) I had recently left working in the mental health field, which was both rewarding and taxing, and moved from the suburbs of Philadelphia to the rural surroundings of the Pocono Mountains. The idea of taking time for myself was not a foreign concept; however it is typically quite a dichotomy. On the one hand you have people telling you that you need some me time, “Take some time for yourself,” they’d say, “You deserve it.” Then, on the other hand, you have people asking you and accusing you of being selfish for doing so.

I believe you deserve to be pampered.

A Girl’s Gotta Spa! ® was built on the belief that your personal well-being should be a priority. A Girl’s Gotta Spa! is a call to action, whether you are young or old, regardless of ethnicity or creed, working in the corporate world or busy raising the next generation of responsible leaders, you deserve to treat yourself daily.
I truly believe this and whether you are worn and withered from your career, your children, your spouse, your friendships, your finances and any other circumstance in your life (the good and the bad), I want you to believe it too.

Pamper: To indulge with every intention, comfort and kindness.

A Girl’s Gotta Spa! bath and body line is one that is natural and cruelty free. Nowhere in our mission is there room for animal cruelty of any kind. We’re proud to now be among a prestigious list of beauty companies who also hold this same value with our Leaping Bunny certification.

  • A Girl’s Gotta Spa! is free of sulfates, formaldehyde, petrochemicals, synthetic colors and fragrances. Our Energizing Citrus Body Wash and Energizing Citrus Body Lotion are both vegan. Crafted in small batches, the purity and quality of the ingredients will be an elucidation to your dry skin care woes and satiate your senses.
  • Energizing Citrus is an invigorating mix of pink grapefruit, lemon, lime and orange. The fragrance is not overwhelming, but more subtle in the sense that you can clearly distinguish each essential oil as you apply the products. The Body Wash will leave your skin hydrated and silky smooth, while the Body Lotion will leave skin looking and feeling soft and healthy.

So I encourage you, take time for yourself today. Know that you are worth it. Know that you deserve to be pampered.

 

Thank you Shannon, we are so thrilled to be associated with you and your brand!

Next week, you will have the chance to win these 2 products to pamper yourself!  Be watching via Facebook, Twitter and this blog for details as to how to enter!
