Bird's Haven Farms
We know our customers care about using natural, high-quality products, so we are thrilled to be partnering with Bird's Haven Farms! We are so excited to be a part of Bird's Haven Farms' CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) for the 2019 season. If you haven't heard of Bird's Haven, they are a local family-owned farm located in Licking County, Ohio, just north of Granville. This is their 24th season farming, and they are committed to sustainable agriculture using natural methods. They supply their delicious produce to several local restaurants along with participating in local farmer's markets and providing CSA subscriptions. You can check out their website here to learn more about this fabulous farm!
If you are looking to eat more healthy, locally-grown food, consider joining their CSA. They have CSA pick-ups in Granville and Westerville. Their CSA program allows for you to fully experience all a season has to offer. The May season will start slow with lots of greens. Think lettuce, bok choy, spinach, and beets. By peak season in late July to August, you will see a lot of tomatoes, cucumbers, sweet corn, and even watermelon. As the fall season begins, they welcome gourds, winter squash sweet potatoes, and pumpkins! A true localvore season!
In addition to all the yummy produce you'll receive as a CSA member, you can also sign up for CSA add-ons, and that's where Martha's Bath and Body comes in. You can receive a monthly sampling of our products at a reduced price as a CSA add-on. And there's many more CSA add-on options, like pasture-raised meat from Oink Moo Cluck, local certified-organic coffee from One Line Coffee, delicious honey from Latshaw Apiaries Honey, maple syrup from Winding Trails Pure Ohio Maple Syrup, shiitake and oyster mushrooms and mixes from Tiger Mushroom Farms, and cut flowers and eggs from cage-free hens. Check here for more information about the CSA and the CSA add-ons!
Speaking of new local partners, we are happy to tell you about The Collective in Newark, Ohio! Part gallery. Part retail shop. Part workshop space. The Collective is a curated collection from independent artists, creators and DIY'ers. The mission of The Collective is to create a cooperative space where independent artisans, crafters and DIYers can sell, create and host workshops to promote their craft and products. Their Grand Opening is March 15th - 17th, where they'll be lots of fun activities and workshops to launch the new space! Each day they'll feature some hors d'ouvres and beverages plus each day there will be a partner in the space leading a drop-in workshop. Martha's Bath and Body products will be there -- including some of our newest fragrances and products. We're thrilled to be included along with many other local talented artists and creators! This shop is located at 57 Price Rd, Newark. Hours are Friday and Saturday 9am-5pm, and Sunday 12-4pm.
We'd love to have you support either of these local businesses, and thank you so much for supporting ours!

Simplifying + Natural Living
We are loving the days when the weather is warmer, the sun is shining, and spring is in the air. The sunny warmer days are few and far in between, so we have to soak it up when we can! We've started rolling out some new spring fragrances to help you get into the spring mood! But first we wanted to discuss something else -- simplifying our lives! If you have been craving more simplicity and more natural, intentional living, please read on!
Minimalism for the Shower + Coupon Code
At the beginning of the year, I got rid of two-thirds of my clothes. Didn't like the sleeves? Gone.Thought the fit was weird? Gone. Realized that the style was a decade too old? Gone. Even though I may only have a handful of items now, they are all comfortable, fit well, and I feel good in them. Sometimes we have to mentally get to a place where we have had enough of sorting through all the things we aren't crazy about to get to the things we love. Reducing what we have to manage frees up physical space, mental space, and emotional space, leaving us with more time and energy for the people and the moments that are truly important. Some call it minimalism or the KonMari approach, and many are trying to live a more simple, more intentional life. No matter what you call it, if you are craving more simplicity and more natural product choices, you've come to the right place. Here's some tips that can save you some space and sanity!
Many of our products can serve duel purposes. This means that you could reduce the number of bottles or bars in the shower without sacrificing quality.
We hope this information inspires you to simplify something in your life as you learn what works best for you!
