|Mystic Water Soap - Handmade Bath & Body Products|
|Days are getting longer and were all beginning to think about our gardens and getting impatient for the new farmers market season to start. I will be back at the Riverdale Park, Kensington, Greenbelt and Cheverly farmers markets this year, as well as some of our favorite local festivals. Ive listed links to them, with driving directions, dates and times. Theres always good music, lots to see and do and great local artists, so please come out and enjoy the nice weather with us!|
This year Im expanding my hair care line to include red and neutral henna powder if youve ever been curious about henna, stop by and well chat about it. Im discovering the benefits of using neutral henna as a conditioner that doesnt alter your hair color. And if youre looking for an alternative to SLS-based shampoos, try our shampoo bars: theyre scented with pure plant essential oils and contain no preservatives or sulfates. Theyre especially convenient for travel. I also make three different after-shampoo herbal rinses and a hair conditioning oil with Moroccan argan oil.
Last summer I introduced a sugar scrub in cube form and this spring there will be a creamy version in a jar as well, in a variety of scents. Its an emulsified scrub, so it forms a rich lotion as it exfoliates, and rinses off leaving your skin moisturized and glowing. And of course, Ill have some new soap fragrances as well as old favorites!

|Stachowski Brand Charcuterie - Fresh sausage, cooked sausage, cured meats, seasonal offerings, gallantines, terrines, and cold cuts.|
202 413 7355
|Methods of preserving meats by curing and smoking, sausage making, and other crafts of butchering are common in many Eastern European cultures and Jamie StachowskiÂs family is no exception. A native of Buffalo, Stachowski draws on a rich tradition in practicing this craft, also known as charcuterie.|
Stachowski began his career as a chef, having apprenticed with some of the best European chefs in his youth, acquiring a classic training in techniques and flavor profiles. Since 1984, he has made his home in Washington D.C. where he has built a reputation as an inventive but classically grounded chef. Critics enjoyed his Âbrashly idiosyncraticÂ Âpoetry on a plate.Â
In the early 2000Âs, he owned and operated Restaurant Kolumbia where he first garnered attention for ÂThe Butcher Board,Â an array of handcrafted galantines, pates, cured fresh, and smoked sausages served on a butcher block. The invention, style, classicism, and deliciousness of his cooking style found equal expression in his charcuterie.
From that time, Stachowski has developed a charcuterie business patronized by chefs, wine shops, specialty groceries and now featured in several local farmerÂs markets. You will love it as soon as you taste it!
