Prairieland Herbs
By Melissa Miller




The mother and daughter team of Donna Julseth and Maggie Howe turned their passion for gardening into Prairieland Herbs. They hand make all-natural bath, body, tea and food products using ingredients grown on their farm in mid-west Iowa.

I am smitten with the Lemon Poppyseed Sugar Body Scrub ($7.25 for 8oz, $12.50 for 16oz), a wildly refreshing blend of lemon, jojoba oils and sugar. I adore this bath treatment; itís become my morning pick-me-up staple. Both salt and sugar scrubs are offered in Oatmeal and Honey, Patchouli, Sweet Lavender and Red Raspberry.

Bubble Bath
in Pink Grapefruit ($8 for 6oz) is all natural with gentle, natural soap, glycerin, aloe and fresh comfrey that leave the skin soft. Iíve never been a body oil lover until I prairieland herbs oilstried Lilac Bath and Body Oil ($10 for 6oz). A hydrating blend of sunflower, olive, jojoba and vitamin E oils leaves the skin velvety smooth without an oily feel. Itís available in a variety of scents including Sweetgrass and Cedar, Sandalwood Vanilla, Rosemary Mint, and Sage and Plumeria.

Another winner is the Hair, Body and Linen Mist ($8 for 6oz) in Ocean Rain. When you spray this on your sheets, you and anyone nearby will be jumping into bed.

The delightfully sweet Cocoa Butter Botanical Bath Salts ($5 for 8oz) make a luxurious and moisturizing soak. I discovered a new, lovely fragrance favorite, Apricot Freesia, a clean, delicate scent with a juicy apricot note, which I sampled in the talc-free Body Powder ($7.50 for 6oz). Packaged in elegant silver tins with powder puffs, Iím planning on giving several as gifts. Vintage Skin Lip Balm ($2.25 per tube) is a soothing lip treat available in Vanilla.

Other popular items that are offered in a variety of scents include Goat Milk Soap ($2 for 2oz bar, $4 for 4oz bar), Solid Perfume ($2.50 for ľoz tin) and Lotion Bars ($7.50). Also available from PrairielandHerbs.com are baby care products, hair rinses, essential oils, herbal salves and balms.
