Unprecedented times call for unprecedented measures.

First and foremost, I hope you are all managing the stress and uncertainty of the current situation with grace.

Second, from the bottom of my heart, Thank You for supporting us during our annual anniversary BOGO sale on St. Patrick's Day. As I talk online and offline with colleagues, friends and family, the real devastation seems to be the financial burden all of us face. Will people lose their jobs indefinitely? Will small businesses be able to bounce back from this?

We buy our raw materials from small companies and some of them have ceased operations with no idea when they will be back up and running. Some (like us) are still shipping products. I saw an article last night that said the post office *could* potentially close if there was a surge of postal workers who contracted the virus. We never have to go to the post office, we just arrange for pick up anyway, but if the post office closes down, it's out of my control.

It's speculation at this point but as a business owner, I have to examine all potential sides. We've decided to extend our BOGO sale until June 1st (or until we sell out) so we can help you stock up, to sell through our fresh products, and to help other vendors which we buy from.

I realize that skincare isn't a priority, however if you are in need, I want to be able to save you money. No coupon code needed and the extra products don't show up in your cart, we just add them to the back end. Celtic Jewel is not eligible for BOGO and gift certificates/coupon codes are not valid with this offer. You can help our small businesses by spreading the word. I would rather have less profits and not lose my business that I've worked so hard for.
SHOP BOGO SALE

If you've already shopped the BOGO sale, a great way to support us (and all small businesses you love) is to share this newsletter and FB posts. It's a pay-it-forward action that requires no financial investment.

I'm not going to tell you to wash your hands, stay in, etc. because that seems like common sense. However I will tell you that fear (especially fear of the unknown) releases chemicals in the body that aren't good for your immunity. There are four things which make fear dissolve and I encourage you to make them a daily practice.

Pray, be in gratitude, laughter and exercise.

I have to admit, I was glued to the TV and social media for the first week or so, and it made me feel sad, depressed and very fearful. Our bodies are 80% water, and water is programmable (see Dr. Emoto's work on the effects of words on water here, watch this experiment here ) . If your body is being fed negative words and images, the result is you will experience intense fear. The opposite is true too: if you are being surrounded by kind, loving words you will experience joy.

Get out in your garden, send real letters to friends, bake bread...whatever brings you joy, NOW is the time to do it! Express gratitude to whoever you can, tell your friends and family how much you love them.

I wrote this affirmation/prayer on an index card and it's the first thing I read when I wake up and when I go to sleep: "I am divinely protected, guided and loved".

If you have any questions, or you need a prayer partner please reach out :)

P.S. All body products (lotions and scrubs) will be back in stock April 4th.

Be safe, our Celtic family!

I'm
Gratefully yours,
