Apple Shampoo
Mango Body Wash & Shampoo 2-in-1 !

These new products are packed with features to help your little one move fun-in-the-tub to fun-in-the-shower. Each has a fun, fruity fragrance and prominently features Elmo! The image of Elmo washing has been proven to encourage kids to mimic him and do the same. Talk about gaining independence!

Faithful Muscle Relief Lotion Users,

We are pleased to be able to make a limited quantity of our Muscle Relief Lotion available for purchase online at While we would love to sell this product forever, the truth is that all of our major retail partners de-listed it, which left us no choice but to formally discontinue it. If you love our Muscle Relief Lotion, you'll enjoy our other Village Naturals Therapy products including our Aches & Pains Mineral Bath Soak and Foaming Bath Oil.

Please be sure to purchase our 'last batch' of Village Naturals Therapy Muscle Relief Lotion - now available ONLY on!

Didn't Win the Race - But Did Win Over Little Hearts

A little over a week ago, October 3rd, I was walking to the State Capitol (MN) grounds on a rainy Saturday. I was going to meet up with Mr. Bubble. As I was approaching the festivities of the Twin Cities Marathon weekend, I realized I didn't know where I was supposed to be going to see him. Ha, I should have realized, it's Mr. Bubble. How many other big, pink, bubbles would be walking around? I could have seen him from a mile away.

The race itself - Harry & Shelly's Mascot Invitational - was very short. And entertaining. Sadly, Mr. Bubble did not win the race.

He did, however, win over the hearts of some little ones.

I am also happy to report that, though he is a bubble, the rain did no harm.
