Announcement    11/18/2022: Last Day to order from Vital Roots to get your package in time for Christmas is Dec. 12th, 2022! Thank you for supporting small business! It has been a difficult several years for everyone, so make sure to get your herbs to help support your nervous system and your immune system. Happy Holidays everyone!

10/04/21: Last day to order from Vital Roots to get your item in time for Christmas is Dec. 14th, 2021! I can't believe this is upon us already this year, but because of all the delays last year, it's recommended that people get their gifts early this year. Retailers are preparing for the biggest e-commerce holiday of the year: Christmas. With that in mind, the Christmas shipping deadlines for USPS have been announced so online merchants can beat Santa this year.

Last year, over a million packages failed to reach their destination in time for Christmas due to the massive surge of online orders. A similar uptick in orders is expected this year as well. (Shippo) Remember, there is no guarantee for shipping, so the earlier the better for peace of mind. And with that in mind, peace and love to all of you!

12/11/20: Last day to order to get your items in time for Christmas is Dec. 16th, 2020! Just remember this is working with the idea that USPS has no delays due to storms or Covid, so no guarantee. Happy Holidays everyone!! (Everyone local to Denver can message me and pickup any items you'd like from my porch all the way up to Christmas day:)

Dec. 8th, 2020: We're still living and dealing with Covid-19, and I'm so thankful to have the allyship of herbs during this time, and I love sharing that with clients and customers. Do note that I offer FREE shipping with an order of $35 or more, and that is like an additional 10-40% discount off your order (depending on how far away you live from me)-so order up what you need and can right now. I'll raise my prices sometime after the beginning of next year when I have more time to do so. But in the meantime, please enjoy the discounts!

(Written sometime in March 2020) Blessings to all of us as we learn to deal with what Covid-19 is bringing to our midst. To let you know about where your Vital Roots products are being packed and sent out: All Vital Roots orders are processed here in my home. In my home we have someone almost 60, a 46yo with a chronic illness, and my mother who is 70 with a chronic illness and two kids....so we are being VERY careful. 1) We kept my kiddos home from school 4 days BEFORE our county called off school. 2) Myself, my mother and my kiddos have had no contact with anyone from the public almost 15 days now, which is 15 days BEFORE Denver instituted a "shelter in place" decree. 3) my husband is the only person in our home who leaves the home. He wears a respirator (that he had previously from work as a contractor) outside the home when in contact with the public, and immediately upon returning from being away from the home, removes his clothing in our garage and walks straight to the shower. 4) Each day we work on cleaning different parts of our home, like one day is disinfecting all the door handles and cupboard handles in our home. Another day is disinfecting cell phones, light switches and more. To disinfect, we use my product "Alcohol Cleansing Spray" and you can read in the description of the product why the World Health Organization stated this formula to be helpful. My mother and I react to many synthetic chemical smells, so we are unable to use most of the common household disinfectants. 5) 15 days ago we discontinued using hand towels to dry our hands on after washing them. However, we were using WAY too many paper towels. So in the kitchen, we use washcloths as single use drying towels to cut down our use of paper goods. Yes, we do end up doing laundry every day. But I did have a large stock of washcloths from previous herbal events that I had hosted, so that helped. To combat the extreme hand dryness, we use my facial moisturizer "moisturizer + wrinkle reducer", which has helped my hands immensely. I hope that explains all the precautions we take in my home with the products you are ordering - and please feel free to message me with any other questions. We will get through this together:)

What am I about? At Vital Roots Herbs, I use ONLY natural ingredients, avoid synthetic, and prefer certified organic and ethically wildcrafted, I begin from scratch, making only small batches to assure freshness. Of course no animal was harmed to test my products.
From my ongoing education, I work very hard to learn about reputable suppliers, particularly ecologically aware and environmentally concious companies, to ensure an exceptional quality for all of my products.
What's the magic? I first start with all natural cold-pressed and organic or expeller-pressed oils, steering away from solvent-extracted oils. For example, my extra-virgin cold-pressed olive oil. I then add certified organic, certified by Oregon Tilth, ethically wildharvested herbs to the base of the olive oil. I infuse the oil with the herbs by allowing them to bask in the warm Colorado sun for at least 6 weeks. This lets the heat from the sun impart the wonderful medicinal and skin-mending qualities from the herbs righ into the base oil! This potent herbal healing oil is now ready to be applied directly to the skin. The remaining oil is used in other delightful creations such as the "Baby Bum and First Aid Salve" or the "Lavender and Virginia Cedarwood Foot Butter". Then sprinkle some drops of pure essential oils into the mix. Magical? Of course!

*****Hi everyone! It's so fascinating to learn where my customers find me! If you would like to share, please leave the info in the Message to Seller when you check out, or just a simple convo if you are browsing. It's been wonderful perusing Etsy with you!!!*****

About VitalRootsHerbs

Sales 2,855
On Etsy since 2011

Acirema is America spelled backward. But is there a meaning to the name Acirema?

(Before I get to the story behind Acirema, here is the link to sign up for my newsletter page: http://eepurl.com/r-9AD, and will keep you updated on any coupon codes available, events and new products for lcofacirema!)

Well, I'm almost done writing this story, and I will post it when I'm finished. But I'll give you a hint....it is based on the idea presented by the anthropologist Horace Miner in his famous essay "Body Ritual among the Nacirema". Do you have an idea of the connection?

Right now, I am a stay-at-home mom with two rambunctious boys, ages 8 and 5. I create most of our family's body products. Everything from the baby shampoo I've used on the boys since infancy to Quiescence Linen Spray, which we spray on EVERYTHING in our house that has any kind of "off" odor to nighttime monsters. What this means is that every single product I sell has been tested time and time again on my own family. If it doesn't work on them, I don't sell it to you!

But while I am a mom creating herbal, all natural product right now, it hasn't always been this way. I graduated from Kansas State University with a B.A. in Cultural Anthropology in 1998. In college, I had given speeches in my advanced Spanish class about essential oils, so I knew I had some interest in alternative healing methods. (Couldn't give that speech in Spanish again for a million dollars!)

After college, I moved to Denver, CO. In 1999, I enrolled in The Rocky Mountain Center for Botanical Studies in Boulder, CO. I completed over 1300 hours, ranging from Herbal Materia Medica, local herb walks, Anatomy and Physiology, to a clinical internship program. I started seeing my own clients in 2003. While I would write up a detailed recommendation sheet for them, including diet, lifestyle and herbal recommendations, their favorite part was almost always the specialized body or medicinal product that I custom created for them! And combined with my intense interest in essential oils, voila! My product making had begun.

So with my background in herbal healing, I became very, very particular about each and every ingredient I put in a product. If I was aware that eating fake food was harmful, how in the world could I think that a fake ingredient in a body product was healing? I couldn't, and neither should you. I want you and my own family to have the very best healing ingredients, so that is what I use. I hope you enjoy!

    I love to make herbal product. I love the creativity, the smells, feeling the herbs with my hands, and I love the feeling that I am part of this healing creation that someone will use.

Shipping

Domestic shipping in the US: Most of my domestic shipping allows the customer to choose between Priority and First Class and Priority Express. If you don't see one of the options, it means that product is not eligible to ship in that designation. Priority has many beneficial qualities, including allowing your package to arrive earlier than First Class Mail, and it also provides tracking. I'm not in this to make money off of shipping. I create top quality, completely handcrafted herbal products and that is what you are paying for. Beautiful, sensual, herbalicious product!

I ship all orders within 1-5 days of receiving your order, and Priority mail provides 2-4 day service, (though not guaranteed) to most domestic destinations.

Quickship: If you need your product in a hurry, I recommend you choose the Priority Express option, which provides shipping in 1-2 days (to most destinations). If you would like to shorten my processing time (normal processing time is 3-5 business days), then you can deposit $50 in my Paypal account (roopzip10@msn.com), and I will process your order in 24 hours. Make sure to send me an Etsy message notifying me of your paypal deposit.

International shipping: All international packages under 4 lbs are shipped out through USPS FIrst Class International. While First Class takes longer than Priority, it can save quite a bit of money per order on international shipping. All international purchases weighing above 4 lbs and less than 70 lbs are shipped out USPS International Priority Mail. Also, very important, buyer is responsible for ALL taxes, customs and processing fees that may incur or apply to allow buyer to retrieve/pick-up their package. I request that you contact your customs office and ask about import regulations and restrictions before placing your order. It is important for you to become familiar with Customs policies for your specific country before ordering. Customs regulations differ by country and not knowing their regulations can result in your order incurring high import duties, the delivery being delayed or even returned. Please check with your Customs office to see if your country permits the shipment of the products you are planning to order from me and if any additional licenses or permits are needed. In addition, all International orders must have an actual address to ship to - no PO boxes.

***For international shipping, I refund any overages that are $3.00 above the quoted shipping price.

International First Class shipping time is also dependent on the destination.

If you need any other options, or have any suggestions, please let me know!

Additional policies and FAQs

FAQ:

Q: Why is the print on your labels so small? I can't read it.

A: The answer is two-fold. First, there are requirements by law as to the information that is required on each bottle of product. I have to make sure I get all the information on each and every bottle. But that leads me to the second part; I also have a strong commitment to creating green products, and not creating large unnecessary packaging you find all too often in the big box stores. So technically, I could add a "booklet" of instructions and ingredients to each product that would be easier to read. But as I know my green-earth savvy customers would agree - let's save paper! And read the instructions and details on my Etsy, where all is provided. I try and send only the absolute necessary information on extra paper, such as my Herbal Skin Care Kit 101, and a couple of others. Otherwise, all the hard read print on labels is duplicated on my Etsy site for easy perusing. I hope that helps! And feel free to let me know if you have any other questions about my products!

Q: Hi Lori! I have been using natural/organic skincare for the last several years. This last year I tried several brands with mediocre results. My skin is changing as I age and is getting drier (I have always had oily skin). I have dry patches on my cheeks/jowls that does not seem to go away. Others don't notice, but I do. The last cleansing routine I tried made my face even drier. My jawline and forehead were now dry.

So I saw someone recommend your products and purchased your trial pack. I started using it Thursday evening (9/25). That night I could already feel a difference in my skin. Yay!!! I have been washing my face with your products twice a day since then. I also drank all the tea. My skin looks better already but I still have the dry patches on my cheeks. Do you think this will just take time or could the toner be drying my skin out? Really want to get my skin smooth and supple again.
Thanks again!

A: Thanks for writing in your question! First, congratulations on using natural products, as that is the biggest step for so many people.

Also, I'm glad you saw a difference in using my products, even only after 4-5 days! I would however, give my products a little more time to see the benefit in your skin. Letting your skin microbiome adjust after using soap or basically anything but oil, can take a little time. Of course, the time it takes being dependent on each person, just as each person healing from a cut will take different amounts of time. And as an aside, I did create this skincare line because I too, suffered from dry skin!

Toner has typically been associated as "drying", but that is because toner usually contains alcohol. My toner does not contain alcohol, and should not contribute to drying of the skin. My toners ingredients are also a time-honored remedy for sunburn, I have used it many times for such, and has only helped with the dried out skin from sunburn. I have also seen my toner help incredibly with dry facial skin. That being said, every single person is different, lol! The toner may contain something that you are sensitive to. I would suggest, if you continue to have the dry skin after 2-3 weeks, stop using the toner for 1-2 weeks, see if the dry skin improves, and then start using the toner again to see if the dry skin re-emerges. It is my personal preference to try a hypothesis more than one way to ensure coincidence had nothing to do with it. You may not be so inclined.

Changing to more appropriate skincare is usually enough for most people to see benefits. However, those that don't improve, or improve enough, have now been exposed to the truth of what the large cosmeceutical companies don't want people to know. That a large portion of skin problems will never resolve solely from topical treatments. Chris Kresser, one of the leading Paleo practitioners, has a quote that says something akin to this, "skin symptoms are always accompanied with gut issues". Meaning that the problem started in the gut, and as detox pathway impairment and hormone dysregulation continued, it eventually showed up as skin issues. My tea, Skin Restorative Infusion, is a great place to start as it will help with vitamin and mineral repletion, gut healing and liver support. I do recommend for optimal results, to drink 1 quart of this tea for 4 months. Working with a qualified practitioner who understands the gut/skin connection will also be helpful, if you are not seeing results. I see clients myself, phone and Skype, but there are many out there you could contact. I don't know how bad your dry skin is, but if it is mild, I strongly suspect it will clear without having to take these other steps.

One last thing, as a practitioner, I always tell people, if I could only tell you one supplement to take to improve your skin (and just about every other organ system), it would be cod-liver oil. My favorite brands are Green Pastures, Nordic Naturals and Carlsons. It is a highly nutritive and lubricating oil with Vit A and D and others that are specific for dry skin.
Hope this helps! And please let me know if you have any other questions, or if anything else comes up!
