Christmastime and the holiday season is most associated as being a season of giving. Thistle Farms is a non-profit located here in Nashville which has a beautiful story of what it means to give and experience love–a story that only grows more powerful as we reflect during this time of year.
Thistle Farms sells natural home, bath and body products that are handmade by women who are overcoming the anguish of their past. Many of these women have spent years on the streets in prostitution, struggled with drug and alcohol addiction and spent time in prison. Through Thistle Farms, these women create products whose profits directly support them and give them the opportunity to earn an income and work towards economic independence.
Giving cause-related gifts is a powerful way to give back during the Christmas season. Not only does your gift bless the individual who receives it, but it blesses and supports the women at Thistle Farms as they journey towards mental, emotional and spiritual freedom and renewal.
Thistle Farms products smell fantastic and are safe for both your body and home and the environment! The products are reasonably priced and come in a variety of aromatic scents. My favorite scent is their lavender, which is available through candles, body and hand lotions, lip balm, shower tea, body cleanser… and the list goes on.
With just a few shopping days left until Christmas, consider picking up some Thistle Farms products for the ladies (or men!) in your life! They would make great stocking stuffers or be wonderful, simple gifts for co-workers.
Thistle Farms products are available at a myriad of locations in Nashville, so be sure to check out their website to type in your zip code and find the location nearest you or to shop online.
