Why Lip Balm?

Our Hand Poured Vegan Lip Balms are the first organically preserved skin care product of Okamura Farmacopia.  Made out of necessity, lip balm is one of those things. When I need it, I really need it.  It’s always getting lost, and if somehow I don’t lose it, it lasts forever. 
There are not many benefits to being related to me—I love everyone, but never call, only visit occasionally and I show my love in lip balm. 
My love is strangely utilitarian:
In a pinch you could melt it down and make a candle, I often do this when I find an old one in a pocket or under the car seat.  Nothing goes to waste at Okamura Farm.
Tattoo/scar healing balm.  Those areas you have chosen to mark, or the areas where life has marked you.
Cuticle oil.  My lovely friend Lisa at Seven Bridges Winery found this use. I have a 1 oz. jar in my car and use it as hand and sometimes leg moisturizer.  I leave little oily smooches everywhere I go...what? It conditions the leather.
I’ve poured every single one of them—especially the ugly ones--with the intention of love, joy and comfort. Hope you like! xosherry

Adding *Acupunture* Rachel Gilman to Body Mind Spirit Expo!

If you've been curious about acupuncture, we're bringing it out of the treatment room and into the Okamura Farm Market booth at the Body Mind Spirit Expo in Portland, November 1-2, 2014!

Acupuncturist Rachel Gilman from Acupuncture Northwest will perform complimentary acupuncture both Saturday and Sunday.  

If you have questions, concerns, fears or phobias, bring it!  Rachel often treats pain, digestive issues, infertility, insomnia, anxiety, depression, prenatal care and so much more.  She is a sensory healer, in addition to excellent acupuncture treatment, she incorporates aromatherapy and shiatsu.  

She also practices cosmetic acupuncture!  I tried one treatment and it's rather amazing for improving the appearance of fine lines, firming and tightening facial skin. The best part?  She accepts most health insurances!  

Stay tuned for more information about the OF Farm Market booth at BMSE!  #BodyMindSpiritExpoPDX #okamurafarm #acupuncture #rachelgilmanacupuncture
