When I hit the second trimester in my pregnancy I was having headaches every day. I am not one to function well when I have a headache and if I do not catch it in time with medication it will usually turn into a migraine. Since I was experiencing them every day I was taking medication every day as well. I started to worry about how much I was intaking and started looking into other options.
Most options I looked into required me to either drive a distance to get it or to order online which this is something we are trying to avoid. I had heard wonderful reviews on getting an all natural headache roll which is basically essential oils you put on the back of your neck and temples.
When the Annual Cranberry Festival was taking place in Fort Langley recently I stumbled across an all natural bath, body and home shop called Chuckling Duckling. When I walked in I was delighted by all the wonderful soothing smells that were extremely pleasing to the senses. I asked one of the staff where I could find a natural relief for headaches and she scooped up their Head Start Roll-On in peppermint and it has not left my side since! It has even helped me through some of my more nauseous time. Can you tell I’ve used it a lot?
Leah is the face behind this amazing local shop. Her love for organic, clean product’s started back in the 1990’s when she worked at The Body Shop while attending college. Her passion grew even more when she entered into motherhood and wanted nothing more than to provide her children with products that were not harmful and filled with chemicals. Since then, 15 years later, she has been creating with a passion hand-made body and home products with a passion.
Leah was generous and made me the most awesome package filled with amazing products that I cannot wait to use! I know they are going to be awesome just by the quality I experienced with the headache roll!

I believe it is extremely important these days to really look into what we are putting on our skin. Recently a major company just admitted to adding cancer causing ingredients into their products! This is a company that people have trusted for years but if we aren’t aware they are able to get away with cutting corners.
It is such a blessing when we have a local shop and owner who is both passionate about what they do by producing amazing local products that you KNOW where it is coming from and providing that to others. For me, that is a huge peace of mind because this mama certainly does not have time to do it herself!
The next time you are in Fort Langley pop into her shop and enjoy being lost in the aroma and community.
