So what's the reason for my state of sheer bliss on this fine autumn morning? We've just made another giant leap towards being a truly earth friendly, locally sourced business with the tiniest of eco-footprints.
We're super-duper proud to announce that:
** we now finish our toys with our very own blend of
organic camelina oil and beeswax
both fresh off our family's organic farm **
So the obvious first question that comes to mind is What in the world is camelina? Why thanks for asking! Camelina is an oilseed native to areas of Europe and Asia. It's a close relative of flax and is known by other names such as wild flax, gold of pleasure, and Siberian oilseed. (Check out Wikipedia to learn a bit more.)
