Breast-feeding Support

Attention new mothers in Guelph - did you know there is a free peer-support program for breast-feeding mothers in Guelph?  It is called the WE (Women Everywhere) Breastfeed Support program.

We are lucky enough to have one of their trained peer support people on our staff here at the store!  Holly has two children of her own and decided to become a part of the program in October 2014.
Holly is at the store Fridays 10-5 and Sundays 9-3.  She would be happy to chat with you if you have any quick questions for her, or you can contact the WE Breastfeed Support Program at 519-821-6638 ext. 250 or online at: http://www.guelphchc.ca/healthy-living/outreach/we--women-everywhere--breastfeed

Going Local with Best Baa Dairy

At the Stone Store we pride ourselves on having the most interesting and best quality local suppliers, so we decided to use this blog as a way to share the stories of a few small businesses who have products we think you'll LOVE!

Ewenity Dairy: Best Baa Sheep Milk 

 Nicole Bzikot, the Plant Manager at Best Baa in Fergus ON, told us that Best Baa began in 2001 as a "retirement" project for Elisabeth and Eric Bzikot (her parents-in-law) who recognized there was a niche market for sheep milk products.  Sheep milk is often easier to digest because it is very close in constitution to human milk.  Plus, it's loaded in calcium, protein, CLA, and vitamins A,D and E in formats your body can absorb.

Our staff are always experimenting with new concoctions in the realms of natural food and body care, and we wanted to share our latest "Do It Yourself" discovery with you.

Aura Cacia makes custom skin-care easy with their new DIY line of organic oils.  It's fun, it's often less expensive than pre-made products, and you know EXACTLY what goes into them, so you can customize scent, richness and quality.
