Vacation Time

Vacation - I'm going to be out of town for Thanksgiving visiting family. I have one of those families that are spread out from one another and this year its been decided by the family elders that we have to come together during that time.

Therefore, although the store will be open, any orders that come in between Monday, 11/23 and Monday, 11/30 will not be processed until Tuesday, 12/01.

Please also be aware that only will take orders during the vacation period. The ecrater site will be closed during the vacation time.

More info on a holiday sale will soon follow....

Free Shipping and Discount Codes - Updates

Hey Everyone, I know its been a while, but I had to make a post to clear a little confusion.

Recently, there were posts made regarding free shipping and discount codes working in conjunction with one another. That was accurate at the time given that was the way the system was supposed to work. Unfortunately, I quickly discovered that the automatic free shipping was implemented before discounts were applied not after. So free shipping was taking place at a lower value than it should have. Definitely too much.

Thus, I have implemented a code specifically for free shipping over $60: FREESHIP

This code will give free USPS Priority Shipping for US customers who's total is $60 or more spent when utilized. No other discount codes will be able to work with this code. Only one coupon code will work with an order.

I apologize for any confusion that may have been caused. Feel free to contact me, if there's any questions.

September 24, 2009 - New Site!

Working on your own site can be fun and frustrating, even for a techie lover like me. Trust, even when you have help, getting everything together is never smooth and never as fast as you would like!

Well, I'm happy to report that our new site at is open and ready to take orders!

I'm still "clearing out some dust" and "sprucing up the place" but come on in and take a look around.

Our beloved eCrater store will still remain open for the forseeable future, so you will need to use the extension to get there. Otherwise, the new AyurNatural Beauty is the official site.

I will post shortly on some of the additional products that are coming soon!

Thanks again and as always, your business is appreciated!

Latest Store Updates Pt.2 ... Price Adjustments

You all will have to forgive me. I have been pretty busy of late.... I forgot to add to the blog regarding price adjustments. We've lowered the prices on a few items in the store. Also, check the bundled discount prices for cassia, indigo, and henna...

Ok, back to work!

Latest Store Updates... plus Free Shipping

Hey Everyone!

Just running down quickly some of the latest store updates:

Cassia, Indigo, and Rajasthani Henna are now available for purchase! Check out the Herbal Hair Color section for details and pricing. Excellent quality at great prices!

We've added a few more skin care products to the store in the Herbal Skin Care and Navratna Plus Herbal Cool Oil in the Herbal Remedies section. So take a look!

But that's not all, new products will be steadily added to the store over the next few weeks. Look for more herbal remedies, especially with cold and flu season around the corner. Also, more herbs and oils will arrive soon. So stay tuned!

Those who are on the mailing list have already received notice that our August one day sale will be postponed to September as we are awaiting larger quantities of certain items to be made available to us. The other reason has to do with our current store limitations, which we are working on rectifying now.........

...... in September, you can expect to see the NEW home for AyurNatural Beauty. Yep, we're implementing a new site with more features and functionality that will serve to make shopping with us a more rewarding experience! Discount codes, free shipping for US orders over $60, plus special bonuses here and there... those will be a surprise...

On the note of free shipping, although I cannot automatically implement it in the current ecrater system, I can issue a refund for the shipping costs. If you know you are going to order over $60 worth of products, just send a message to and we can work it out. Once the new site is live, everything will be a part of the system.

Well, that's all for now.... Until next time...

Cassia, Indigo, Henna Updates

From top to bottom: Indigo, Henna, and Cassia.

Just quickly updating everyone on the henna, cassia, and indigo that I first mentioned in my AyurNatural Beauty interview on Kinky Rhonnie's blog last month. Well, they are now here!!!

Here's a sneak peek of pictures taken of the samples to show just how finely sifted these botanicals are. All of these botanicals are 100% pure, no additives, no additional herbs blended in. The supplier is very reputable and believes in fair trade and sustainability and has been in business for a number of years, so you can be assured that the product is what it says. As I told a customer who inquired recently, this first order is in limited supply. Rest assured, if response is favorable, the henna, cassia, and indigo from this supplier will be in stock on an ongoing basis. I put a lot of research into looking for high quality botanicals, and I believe this is among the best available currently.

The henna, cassia, and indigo will only be sold in 100g at this time.

As always, thank you for your business, it is appreciated!

Henna, Henna, Where's the Henna???

Sooooo... I received a funny email late last night from a customer who absolutely LOVES Karishma Henna!

Quote: "Hi I just checked your website and I didn’t see the KARISHMA HERBAL HENNA listed. Did those greedy women on the LHCF (Long Hair Care Forum) wipe you out ? I know I should have ordered more when I ordered, because I knew once they found out, it would be all over. When do you think you’ll have more available?"

As I read this, I feel both excitement and nervousness as my heart races. I'm thinking that someone must have ordered every last bag in my inventory! I didn't know whether to jump for joy or groan inside.

I look to check and the inventory still looks the same. No new orders came in for all of the Karishma henna while I slept.

So good news! There's still plenty of Karishma henna available! There was a glich in the matrix, ladies. You can still order it. Sorry for the scare.

Now for the bad news.... I was wiped out of Godrej Nupur Henna over the weekend. I will have to see how soon I will have that in again and let the Nupur Henna lovers know.

In the meantime, you all should really check out the Seasons Dulhan henna. It's the same high quality henna that's sold for a lot higher on other sites. It's a Rajasthani henna blended with Amla, Aritha, Bhringraj, Brahmi, Shikakai, and other herbs and very finely sifted.

I also moved the Hesh Mehandi Powder, which is also 100% henna, to join the listing of hennas.

Ok, so there's the Henna updates for now..... back to work I go!

Taking Care Of Business!

It's been over a week since I made my first entry. That's not good... Yet, I have good reason. I have been super busy with orders coming in every day, meeting with my suppliers to get more items, and making sure your orders are sent out expediently!
I anticipated good response, but the speed of this response has me humbled and amazed at the same time. No worries though, I can keep up!

I have to give special thanks to the ladies of 4a on for their support and for spreading the word along with their orders. I also want to thank the ladies on for giving me the opportunity to assist them. Extra shout out to Kinky Rhonnie who has been so supportive from the very beginning - a true big sister. Thanks for even thinking to interview me. I'd never been interviewed before, not even for all my years in corporate and in real estate! It was fun!

Well, enough of all of that. Back to work! I'll be back again... much sooner this time... with some good information that all of you can carry with you....

... And So It Begins ....

The Inaugural Blog!

Yaaayy! I'm so excited!

Let me remember my upbringing and say welcome! I would offer you something to drink, but well... you know... hmmm, how about an e-drink? Or should it be an iDrink? lol ... wait... I better patent that....... Ok, enough jokes...

You've found your way to the blog for AyurNatural Beauty, my online store. For those who do not know,
AyurNatural Beauty is a beauty and health boutique providing herbal and ayurvedic products for the hair, face, skin, and overall health at affordable prices. I wanted to be able to provide more information on what's happening with with the store in terms of products, updates, upcoming sales announcements, and new offerings that are coming soon. In addition, I will post relevant information on the ayurvedic herbs that you will find in the store in an Ayurvedic Herb Spotlight!

One thing that will be different with this blog: as a personal user of some of these products, I can share my personal experiences... and it will be unbiased! Every product isn't going to work for me, but it may work for someone else. I'll also look for readers to share how they are using ayurvedic and herbal products in their daily/weekly/monthly regimens.
So the combination of information plus experiences will give you that much more in deciding what you want to add into your own personal routine.

Well, that's all I wanted to share for now... until next time...
