Sunday, Sunday! And less than a week to go before The Big Chill! Yay! Today we’re learning about Kathi Langelier and her two ventures, Herbal Revolution and Three Roasted Beets. I can say with personal experience that the homegrown + foraged personal wellness products from Herbal Revolution are amazing. Plus, while you’re dropping them in your tea, rubbing them on your face, sore muscles, or whatever you can think of her wandering the woods outside of Lincolnville looking for just the perfect twigs and roots to help your skin, aches and pains, attitude and more.
The Big Chill: What is the first sign of winter, in your opinion?
Herbal Revolution: When the tip of my nose is cold all the time. When the ground is hard to dig in to. When I am ready for bed by 7:30. And my favorite first sign of winter is the first real blizzard of the season.
TBC: What items from your business will keep customers happy + warm all winter long?
Herbal Revolution: There are plenty of herbal products to keep everyone in the family happy throughout the winter months. We have tinctures, elixirs and teas that will keep the immune system boosted, the nervous system uplifted and cheery and the respiratory system supported.
We have some great lotions, cream and oils to keep the skin moisturized and nourished during these drier months.
Lastly, we also have some great knit and felted wear. Arm warmers, cowls, scarves, shrugs and wraps. Plenty of warm wool to keep everyone warm and cozy throughout the chilly months!
TBC: What’s your favorite comfort food in the dark of winter?
Herbal Revolution: Roasted tomato and red pepper soup with a fresh mozzarella, red onion and kale sandwich. Warm gingerbread or ginger snap cookies with fresh whip cream And I am a serious sucker for smart puffs cheese puffs as a snack, … oh, and how could I forget a Rogue Chocolate Stout beer to top it all off!?
Wow! Thank you, Kathi, for your thorough replies. We’re excited Herbal Revolution and Three Roasted Beets will be joining us on Saturday, December 3rd at Mayo Street Arts Center (10 Mayo St., Portland) from 10am to 4pm. WoohoO!
