Letter from the Editor
What is that you can do to transport yourself
- even if only for a few moments a day - to
an oasis of calm and comfort? Somewhere in
the landscape of your frenetic everyday
existence, there is a personal place of peace
and joy that surfaces whenever you connect
with your Muse of Creativity.
Angeles Arrien, author of The Nine Muses:
A Mythological Path to Creativity,
teaches that these magical and mysterious
messengers assist us in bringing our gifts
and talents forward to the world and thus
become more whole. The Muses exist at the
edges of our imagination and will come
willingly when beckoned.
Even as I write this newsletter, I am
listening to a playlist of music that helps
me to connect with the "Writing Muse."
Writing is sometimes tedious and frustrating
when inspiration is not flowing as fast as
I'd like, but this selection of songs
consistently transports me to zone where it
feels easier and definitely less stressful.
This month's Fairy Therapy ("Fair-apy")
multi-talented Kalakhara, Patroness of the
Arts. She paints, she writes, she dances
and plays music, as she carries the template
for any creative talent. While you may be
quick to say "I'm just not artistic,"
everyone has hidden talents. Whenever you
have participated in an activity that seemed
to take you beyond time and space or made
what you were doing feel effortless, you have
entered the fairy realm of Kalakhara.
Fairy Line Naturals is officially a
chain with the opening of our third retail
location on October 22 at the Sarasota Square
(outside of Charlotte Russe.) Our
expansion pauses now so that we can focus on
the holiday season, but we intend to explore
other markets and open more locations in
2008. If you have suggestions for malls or
areas that would support our magical and
natural products and
concept, we'd love to hear from you!
May your days be filled with inspiration, joy and
||COLLECTOR'S EDITION FAIRY WINGS
What makes Halloween so universally appealing
is that we get to try on different characters
and personas for a brief time.
Fairy Line designs all of our original wings,
which are inspired by our various Fairy role
models. For example, the ones pictured are
patterned after Fairy Gabriella, the
innovative and committed Fairy of Friendship.
All of these wings are hand-crafted and
feature exceptional detail, such as tulle,
ribbons, flowers and many other special
touches. We also include an informative
collector's card with each wing design.
Our beautiful "Fairy Girls" love wearing
wings at our retail locations; they claim
that when they put the wings on, they feel
ligher, happier and even stand up straighter!
What's great about these adorable creations
is that even after Halloween you can use them
to decorate your room or just pop them on
from time to time to bring out the fairy in you!
Our apologies in advance to our remote fans:
We have just debuted 6 new fairy's designs
but have not had time to photograph them yet
for the website - for our local fans, come in
and check them out!

||FAVORITE PRODUCT REVIEW
We usually publish one of the wonderful
testimonials that we get from our cherished
customers and consultants, but this month I
would like to give my personal testimonial on
my favorite and most-used product.
As the creator of this line, I love all the
Fairy Line products and I use many of them on
a daily basis, but the one product I find
myself grabbing at least 4 times a day is
Florentina's Magical Healing Balm.
In fact, I have several jars around
Made from a recipe inspired by the fairy of
healing, this balm is exceptionally natural,
free of any additives; Extracts of St. John's
Wort, Comfrey and Calendula (all renowned for
their healing properties) are infused into a
base of beeswax and olive oil with just the
right amount of essential oils of lavender
The best way I can think of to "brag" about
this product is to list all of the uses that
I have personally discovered, as well as the
ones we have heard about from you.
FIRST AID: Soothes scratches, bites,
stings,cuts and bruises. Overtime it can
diminish scarring and stretch marks. Great
for getting the itch out of mosquito bites!
Helps with minor burns.
BABY CARE: Diaper rash and other skin
BEAUTY TREATMENTS: Lip balm, under-eye
treatment, cuticle creme. Use on eyebrows
to shape. Apply to hands and wear cotton
gloves for an hour to soften skin. Rub on
the soles of your feet or massage into aching
FEMININE STUFF: Instantly relieves
Wear on lips and dab under nose when having
PMS or pre-menopausal symptoms - the
essential oils are very calming.
FAIRY ALERT: Because some people have
sensitivity to certain herbs and flowers,
make sure to do a patch test before using.
Not intended for internal use! FYI - We have
never had a complaint about this product.
I hope that you will become fans of this
versatile fairy-inspired product and agree
that it is the best $14.95 investment that
you have ever made!
