September Highlights and Updates

Hey, Y'all!

We hope you had a fantastic Labor Day Weekend. We did our first pop up in Sebastapol on Saturday, and it was so much fun to get in front of people! A huge shout out to Head West Marketplace for having us and creating a SAFE event to allow people to do some small shopping. We hope to return in October. 

We've started a new rewards program - Journey Points! You get rewards for purchases, donations, following us on social media, and more! It's an easy way to get store credit towards your next purchase. If you're an existing customer and made any purchases with us in the past - I highly recommend you create an account. You can do so easily by clicking here, or while you're browsing our site, look for the mountain icon in the lower right corner.

We're going through, and "upping" customers point balance to reflect transactions made. If you refer your friend, you both get $5 in store credit when they make their first purchase. 

Our Keep it 100 b-vitamins are now available, and we should be getting Vitamin C early October. We'll have pretty pictures coming soon.

If you follow us on Instagram. We partnered with our Poshmark slinging friend for a give away and  announced our giveaway winner today on Instagram - Congrats @michealemorgan! We will be doing more of these in the future! Shoutout to our vendor OM for providing some incredible products to give away!

Product Highlights/Collections to check out in September:

It's September - it's hot in San Francisco but becoming fall everywhere else! We've discounted some more of our Summer products to help make way for Fall. You can check it out here. Below is a collection of products we think you should be paying attention to this Fall in no particular order.

1. GOLDE

Golde was one of the first brands we sourced at Dirt Queen before our official launch. They are killing it! We finally got it in stock. Hands down, they have one of the best Golden Turmeric Lattes, Matcha Turmeric Lattes, and Cacao Lattes around. Golde was founded by CEO Trinity Mouzon Wofford and her partner Issey Kobori in 2017 with the mission of bringing good vibes and inclusiveness to the wellness industry. We love how simple it is. If you want to read an inspiring story - check out more here. They're an independent, Brooklyn-born brand centered in making superfood-boosted essentials for health and beauty. Their products are always natural, easy, and (most importantly) fun.

ORiVEDA CCCE

2. CCCE - ORiVEDA Immunity Formula 

Help support your immune system.

CCCE® stands for 'Cessante Causa, Cessat Effectus,' which is Latin for 'by removing the cause you remove the effect'. It's referring to the immunological effect: if your immunity is optimal, you have less chance to get sick.

Why ORIVeDA? 

Scientific research uses, in general, extracted, highly purified mushroom powder to investigate the therapeutic potential of mushrooms.

Oriveda's powdered extracts are comparable in both composition and quality.

CCCE® is a powerful immune-supporting dietary supplement, designed to help counter the adverse effects of age and chronic stress on our immune system. It's a blend of Maitake, Reishi, Turkey Tail, and Cordyceps Militaris; 25% of each. All four are exceptionally pure extracts with a high level of immune-modulating high-molecular-weight beta-glucans and proteo-glycans.

Beta-glucans help to gain and maintain an optimal quality of life and support a feeling of well-being and vitality.

3. MushUp - Vital

MushUp is one of our best selling products we carry at Dirt Queen. Their Vital coffee is an easy way to get an extra immune boost in the morning.* The coffee has Chaga, Turkey Tail, and Reishi. In their words, "Recover and refresh Mushroom-infused coffee with reishi + Chaga + turkey tail Size: 250g MushUp's VITAL coffee is your daily well-being in a cup—it's packed with antioxidants and properties to detoxify your body, support your overall wellness and energy levels, and to help the functioning of your immune system. In our day and age, we all need our very own everyday shield and detox tool, and that's exactly why MushUp created VITAL. Medium-dark-roast espresso coffee citrussy - harmonious - woody."

4. Teas on Teas on Teas

We have Chai Box premium Chai Collection. 

We have Firepot Nomadic Teas - people LOVE the GABA Oolong.

"GABA is a neurotransmitter that is naturally occurring in tea and is said to help relieve anxiety, promote sleep, and help with digestion and weight loss. Nomadic's Organic GABA oolong has been naturally processed from Four Seasons cultivar tea plants in Mingjian, Taiwan, to coax out maximum levels of GABA from the leaf to leave you with a sweet, lingering finish and a relaxed state of mind."

And of course - you can never go wrong with Matcha - we got in a new Yaupon Matcha from an Austin, Texas company, Local Leaf. 

5. Blankets! 

If you can't tell from the photo above - we have some beautiful blankets in stock right now. We sold a ton of blankets over the weekend at the pop up in Sebastapol. We put our favorites in our Fall Collection - check out some more colors:

Blankets for Fall - Orange, Yellow, Red

 

 6. Sage

Autumn is the season for change! There's nothing more solidifying than beginning or ending something with a small ritual. No matter your spiritual beliefs, we think it sets the tone for change and intention. We have smudging sticks for your home to cleanse, renew, and, as some sites suggest - kill bacteria in the air.  No matter your opinion on sage, it smells lovely! Unless your opinion is you don't like the smell, haha. :)

Reminder: Always exercise extreme caution with smudging and always have water around when burning sage - only burn small amounts at a time. With all of the wildfires in California, you don't want to contribute with a smudging session gone awry.

 7. Backroad Beekeeping - Pumpkin Spice Creamed Honey

If we have a customer wanting a PSL - we wanted to help them out without fully committing to a sugary beverage. :)  We found this excellent little company called Backroad Beekeeping out of Sacramento. We pulled in a dozen of their Pumpkin Spice infused Creamed Honeys for your teas, coffee, and whatever else you may enjoy for the Fall. The ingredients include cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, and cloves. 



I hope you have a great week! 

Best,
