We are certainly living in some trying times. We are forever grateful to our brave healthcare professionals, truck drivers, grocery store employees, delivery workers, first responders and so many more for their selfless and heroic actions to help care and protect us everyday. It is beautiful to see everyone flying their American Flags in solidarity too, especially during the pandemic. It reminds us that we’re all in this fight against COVID 19 together; this act of patriotism and pride reminds us that we all stand united in our fight. I heard someone recently explain that she displays her flag because while she can’t visit with her neighbor due to the quarantine, she sees the flag outside the house as a symbol - a form of communication. So please fly your flag to honor all those on the front line who are out there protecting us throughout this horrific pandemic. If you need a flag, you can get one here at Piper and Dune.
We can all do our part to help out too - by making meals and delivering them to our nurses and doctors, sewing masks, grocery shopping for your neighbors, or maybe your company is in a position like Litchfield Distillery to help fill a void, they switched production to make hand sanitizers for the public. At Piper and Dune we’re seeing all kinds of activities and niceties that make us smile. We’ve been filling orders for people looking to surprise someone for their birthday who can’t celebrate because they are quarantined, or to thank someone for helping them out. Just today we delivered twelve bottles of our Organic Tree of Life Maple Syrup to the aides and nurses at a local nursing home to say “Thank You for being so “sweet” to our loved one.” So, Piper and Dune is offering Free Shipping on all orders between now and April 30th to help you make someone smile.

… and, if you or some of your older children are looking for a way to give back or do something nice, and you feel like a project, why not make your own hand sanitizers and deliver an extra bottle to a neighbor? One of our suppliers, Captain Blankenship, shared the following All Natural recipe below, give it a try!
All Natural Hand Sanitizer
2/3 cup 190 proof alcohol (grain alcohol- Everclear is a familiar brand you can find at the liquor store) or isopropyl alcohol*
1/3 cup aloe vera gel
15 drops peppermint essential oil
15 drops cinnamon essential oil
15 drops thyme essential oil
30 drops lemon essential oil
5 drops clove essential oil
Note: It is not necessary to use this exact blend of essential oils. You could just use lemon and cinnamon or peppermint and thyme or a mix. Tea tree essential oil and eucalyptus are also good in this blend. Mix the ingredients together in a measuring cup or small bowl. Pour them into spray bottles with fine mist sprayer. Spray it on your hands and surfaces to sanitize.
At Piper and Dune we warehouse all of our own inventory and we have it readily available to ship. Please shop Piper and Dune with confidence.
We wish all of you health and happiness. Please stay home, be safe, and thanks to all of you for helping to pay it forward.
Chris and The Piper and Dune Family
