From our farmers to your table: Two easy-to-make recipes for World Gin Day!

A farmer represents all that is good about America.  Hard working, focused, loyal, honest, and most importantly uncompromisingly committed to the task at hand.  The same holds true for Prairie Organic Spirits.

Last month the June 10, people around the world gathered to celebrate all things gin, including the vodka that they sip. Made the hard way to ensure there are no chemicals in what you drink, each bottle of Prairie Organic Spirits takes three years of meticulous work, three years preparing the organic fields for the organic, non-GMO corn that gives Prairie its award-winning flavor.



For any vodka or cocktail roundups you might love to know, below are a few signature recipes from Prairie Organic Spirits to enjoy during World Gin Day.

Summer 2017 Beauty Hacks

Today I want to introduce you two lovely products, Static Schmatic and EndureLash. I think now is a great time to introduce these summer 2017 beauty must-haves!

Both beauty products are all-natural solutions to everyday problems.

Static Schmatic is an organic, plant-based mist that functions as a useful and easy way to manage static electricity while leaving no scent or residue. As the ingredients are similar to what is found in makeup setting sprays – this is a great option as a cool mist around your face and hair!

EndureLash is an eco-friendly eye makeup remover cloth, delicate on both natural eyelashes and eyelash extensions. While disposable wipes and cotton rounds pull at your eyelashes and just end up in the trash, this cloth is reusable and just requires warm water to work properly – eyelashes become longer and stronger after just one month of usage!

These are each small, simple products that can be thrown in a tote bag for summer travels.

Summer Essentials by True Natural to Protect your Skin

Summer means more time outdoors, so you’ll want your skin to be protected from sun damage and not compromise on style. Pack all the must have summer essentials of True Natural to keep your skin and nails hydrated, glowing, and safe. The purestchemical-free beauty products, True Natural takes its commitment to pure ingredients seriously. All products featured and sold by True Natural use only safe, natural ingredients — never any petrochemicals, synthetic preservatives, colors or fragrances. Most items are gluten-free and no animal testing is done on any products.

UV rays change with time of day, season and location. Here are some interesting facts to keep in mind when planning your outdoor activities this summer:

  • Time of Day: UV is greatest when the sun is at its highest in the sky — between 10 am and 4 pm — and less in the early morning and late afternoon.
  • Seasonal: While UV exposure is greatest in the summer (May—August) in the U.S., it’s important to remember UV rays reach Earth every day, so be sun safe year-round—including wintertime! Snow can reflect 85% to 90% of the sun’s UV rays.
  • Altitude: UV exposure is greater in the mountains than in the valleys because air is cleaner and thinner at higher altitudes
  • Location: UV is strongest at the equator and gets weaker moving towards the poles.
  • Exposure: The longer you’re out in the sun, the more UV rays you receive; remember, you are exposed whenever you’re outside.

Pack these summer essentials from True Natural:

  • When out and about in the sun, keep your complexion in check with the all-natural BB Creama facial cream and light foundation with 8-in-1 skin benefits. Natural pigments and nourishing oils smooth, soften and deeply hydrate the skin while color pigments conceal redness and skin irritation.

  • Instantly shield against damaging UVA and UVB rays with the Ultra Protect SPF Antioxidant Sunscreen, a vegan and gluten-free antioxidant sunscreen made for even the most sensitive skin. The all-natural sunscreen is a gentle blend of mineral-based actives and astaxantin to provide the ultimate in safe anti-oxidant sun protection.


  • Show off gorgeous tanned legs and arms without UV or cancer risk with Self Tanner with Shimmer, a deeply hydrating self-tanning lotion with organic macadamia nut oil that hydrates the skin. Lightweight and fast absorbing, it creates a gorgeous shimmer-glow and a medium tan in just 3 hours, and usually the tan lasts up to one week.

  • Paint your nails a fresh coat of the bright, luscious Benecos Happy Nails Hot Summer for stunningly polished summer-inspired nails. Made with non-toxic ingredients, the polish is long-lasting and dries quickly — plus is healthier for you and the environment!
