LuSa Organics Giveaway!

I am pleased to be teaming up with my friend Rachel to bring you a giveaway courtesy of her family business, LuSa Organics.  My own family is full of LuSa fans.  There were shrieks from Larkspur and Beatrix when we recently received our latest LuSa order, a variety of Rachel’s wonderful soaps (It’s hard to choose, but the girls’ current favorite soap is the Lemongrass and mine is the Time Traveler followed closely by the Lavender Goat’s Milk soap.)  My go to gift when I know a friend could use a boost is the LuSa Organics Delight Gift Collection.

In Rachel’s words, LüSa Organics creates exquisite, effective body care for babies and children and handcrafts moisturizing soap for the whole family. Though we’re a young company, we’ve been featured twice in Mothering magazine! We’re best know for our cloth diaper safe Booty Balm and Baby Wipe Juice.”

Rachel and  her husband Pete live in rural Wisconsin where they homeschool their two children and run their family business together.  LuSa Organics is named after their kids, Lupine and Sage. Rachel also writes a natural lifestyle blog, Clean and is currently working on her first book.

I love the way that Rachel and Pete involve their children in their business:

“Once a week I load my kids into the car and the whole family heads in to our LuSa Organics business space. It’s my one day a week to work on site – developing new products, blending new scents, and making product prototypes for private label customers.”

“Yesterday I reflected on how this day works for my kids. Are they just spending the day waiting for me to finish my work, or are they learning? And in that moment in the other room I overheard Pete teaching Sage long division. Pete took a quick break from bookkeeping to explain the math to Sage, who had been carefully measuring and drawing something to scale all morning.

Meanwhile Lupine was singing and dancing (as usual), cutting some treasures out of paper, working on a puzzle, drawing, and helping me quality check the soaps. ”

I love Rachel’s dream for the future of LuSa Organics:

“I have a dream of LuSa owning an organic farm where we could grow our own organic herbs and ingredients. Imagine rolling fields of organic mint, comfrey, lavender, and calendula. We would build or renovate a small barn in which to distill and press oils, dry herbs, and transform these basic ingredients into our healing organic body care.”

For today’s giveaway Rachel is offering to the winner a choice of either a Delight Gift Collection OR an assortment of baby goodies: cloth diaper safe Booty Balm, Baby Wipe Juice and a Sleeping Potion.
