HAALo, Health Alternatives for All Locals, recently opened their community herb shop in a new location at 412 Commercial St, Nevada City. The shop provides Nevada County with medicinal herbs and herbal body care products made from Nevada City herbalists. Almost all of their products are local, including ingredients from 30 nearby farms growing over 100 varieties of herbs. Taya Malakian, from Floracopeia, recently gave a free educational class about how to make natural skin care products using natural oils. Floracopeia is a local business that works with small distillers around the world to provide high quality essential oils through fair trade exchange. You can sample Floracopeia products at HAALo or sit in on one of the free classes, Wednesdays from 1-1:30. These weekly classes offer fun and practical suggestions on the wide range of uses of essential oils and aromatherapy. To celebrate the new location of HAALo Floracopeia is offering one InnSide Nevada City blog reader a 10% off their products in the HAALo shop, or if you don’t live locally, a 25% off coupon to their products online (valid only for new customers). Please post a comment on this blog post on your favorite essential oil and I’ll draw a winner on Wednesday, July 4th.
