Hey elderberry fans! With Black Friday and Small Business Saturday coming up, it's time for a sale. To make it easier for everyone to stock up, I've decided to start the sale Monday and keep it thru the week (ends on Sunday). Whether you buy 1, 3 or 6 bottles you can save an extra 20%. All of the Elderberry Boost will have an expiration date of November 2023 so this is a great time to stock up and always have some on hand or to give as gifts during this holiday season.
SHOPSMALL is the code to use at checkout
Stay healthy, naturally!
UPDATE: thank you all So much! Shawna has signed the lease on her new apartment and will be moving in the next few days. All of you amazing customers were a part of making this happen. I am so thankful to have the best customers around :)
FUNDRAISER! Please take a minute to read this post if you will:
My friend shawna has had some major issues due to an infection from her hip replacement. It resulted in her going septic and almost leaving her boys without a mom. The whole thing is a lot longer than that, she's been thru so much, but what it comes down to is that she was in the hospital from October 1st until the 20th, she's home now but is unable to walk and obviously can not work.
She has been trying to get into a 2bdrm apt for some time now (we all know what the housing market looks like). Well, she finally got it! Yay, right?! But, the timing is terrible :(
She needs $800 more by the 1st or her and her boys will be homeless (bc the current place is already rented out)
If I had the $800, I'd pay the rent, but I don't, so here's where I can try to help some by doing a fundraiser.
I'll be doing a sale on elderberry boost, pre sale of candles (tons of gorgeous glass containers and amazing new scents!). A portion of the proceeds will be going directly to shawna to pay for her to move into her apartment on the 1st (next week!!!)
Y'all were so amazing the last time I did this a few years ago to help Rocko when he was diagnosed with Epilepsy. So let's rally again and help out a hard working mom who is struggling due to no fault of her own.
Plus, stocking up on Elderberry Boost and candles is a pretty great idea with the season- stay healthy and have gifts on hand too!
*****Please note that candles are being made right now, and may not ship right away. Shawna needs these funds within 1 week in order to be able to move into the new apartment for her and her boys. I'm starting this today so that I can help her as much as possible, but understand that orders may be delayed. Elderberry Boost is in stock and will ship right out, it's only the candles (soy and beeswax) that we are working on making.*****
Have you tried our zinc oxide Summer Skin Protectant?? If you haven't, you definitely should! We spent quite a few days at the beach while we were on the East Coast, and as long as I remembered to put some on- I didn't get burnt! Now that the weather is heating up at home, I'm using it every day and love it. With 20% zinc oxide, it offers about SPF 20. My daughter and I are fair skinned and it works great for us both. You have to be sure to reapply, but that goes with any sunscreen.
Give it a try and let me know what you think!
Hi everyone! Just a very quick update to let you know that we are back home from the East Coast and orders will be shipped out within a day or so of being placed. All of our Summer skin protectants (made with 20% zinc oxide) are in stock, as well as our awesome Dont Bug Me insect repellant. Of course, Elderberry Boost, hand salves and candles are in stock too.
Hope your summer season is off to a great start :)
We will be on vacation from June 6-15
Orders placed by June 3rd will be shipped by June 4th.
All orders after June 3rd will be shipped by June 17th.
Our family is heading back to the East Coast for a long over due visit! I am so excited to see everyone at home :) If you are needing Elderberry boost or any other products, please place your order right away so that I can get it in the mail before we leave.
So excited to announce our new product that will soon be available to purchase thru our online shop!
Goat milk soap!
If you follow Abiqua Naturals on Instagram or FB, you may know that our family has gotten back in to having a little hobby farm. Being around animals is something that we truly love (well Reece and I for sure, James... he puts up with our shenanigans ;) ) Having fresh eggs, growing food, raising meat and even having dairy goats are all a part of what we are creating here!
We have 2 Nigerian Dwarf does named Nutmeg & Ginger. The milk from this breed of goat is amazing, its creamy, delicious and has a high fat content. It is perfect for soap making! This first successful batch is made with Shea butter, coconut oil, avocado oil and goat milk. It is unscented. While supplies last, every order placed will receive a free sample bar to try out!! A new batch will be made today and available in about 3-4 weeks after it cures.
The plan is to offer a few scent options like lavender, cedar and citrus. We will never ever use any fragrance oils in our soaps, scents will come from naturally infused oil or essential oils only.
We hope you will love this new soap as much as we do. It creates a rich lather, nice smooth feel not at all sticky, rinses off easily and leaves your skin soft!! So far I've used it for hands, body wash and dishes.
Happy Friday to all you Elderberry Boost lovers!

Hey Elderberry Boost lovers!
Some of you may have already seen this update on our social media pages, but if not, please take a minute to read this.
As you probably know, we moved to Montana this summer and that has meant getting re licensed in our new state. Every state is different in so many ways, and one thing that we discovered is that Montana does not allow the use of echinacea and stinging nettles. For now we have had to remove those ingredients from our Elderberry Boost. Moving forward it is our goal to get back to the original formula, this will take some time. Even though those two ingredients are no longer in our recipe, our Elderberry Boost is still absolutely amazing, so don't worry!! Our berries and all ingredients (except the honey) are certified organic and always the highest quality available. Elderberry Boost is still wonderful and has the benefits it always has :)
If you have any questions please feel free to contact us through the website or call/ text 503-989-0532.
Thank you so much for continuing to support our small business!

Well, I'm a little late on this update. Probably should have done this Before life turned into total chaos, but better late than never!
Two weeks ago my family and I, plus Abiqua Naturals of course, moved to beautiful Montana. Oregon was an amazing place to live for the last 13 years, but we had talked about Montana for years and finally everything lined up beautifully. So we sold our home in Bend Oregon and headed for the Bitterroot Valley in Western Montana.
I had expected a little delay on getting my business back up and running, only it turned into more of a delay than I had thought. We bought a fixer upper on a lovely piece of property, but it requires more fixing than we planned! Shipping out orders will be a little slower than normal due to this. I have product ready to ship and have finally been able to get my office area sort of set up, but not 100%. My plan is to ship on Fridays only. This will allow me to focus my energy on our home and only spend one day a week in my office, and that is what I really need right now. If you need an order right away please call me 503-989-0532 between 8am-2pm Mountain time, and I will get it out that same day.
Bend customers~ as of now, I am not offering free delivery in the Bend area. This is may become available again in the future if I have someone in the area that can distribute and deliver for me.
Silverton customers~ you can still use the free shipping discount and my lovely in laws will be taking care of Silverton deliveries for me. This discount applies to orders of $54 or more (basically a 3 pack of Elderberry Boost is the minimum). Discount code SILVERTON at check out.
Thank you all for your continued support and understanding. If it weren't for all of you Elderberry Boost lovers, I wouldn't get to do what I love and call it a job :)
Enjoy your summer and don't forget that Elderberry Boost can help with allergies too!
Summer products are here! It took me a bit longer than I hoped to have everything made, labeled and available for sale. But, hey- better late than never right?!
