It’s been quiet on the blog, but I am back and excited to share some of my favorite local businesses, just in time for the holidays! Stay tuned for more sewing adventures, too!
Since we’re all baking and cooking at home more these days, I thought I’d start with The Natural Spot in Bishop Arts District. They truly are one of the best little shops in Dallas! They carry an assortment of carefully curated spices, teas, and more for your culinary needs. They take great pride in sourcing products that are ethically and sustainably grown and bringing it to your table.
One of my favorite reasons to visit is to explore their tea selection. Whether you’re in the market for a seasonal white (or black) tea blend or searching for a soothing tea for a winter cold, it’s likely you’ll leave with a couple more in your basket! I’ve purchased all the ingredients necessary to make my own chai blend, and I’ve also learned to keep dandelion and mullein tea stocked in our house for digestive and respiratory health.
They also carry CBD oil. Honestly, I wasn’t in the market for CBD on my first few visits, but then the shutdowns happened and my mother was diagnosed with early dementia. Unfortunately, like many seniors, the changes affected her greatly, and I became her primary caregiver this summer. A friend recommended we look into CBD to help her with her anxiety, so we tried a few different ones, and Jon and I really like the one they carry best. The owner is very knowledgeable, and he directed us to a few unaffiliated websites for more information and gave us pamphlets for the different oils they carry. I am so appreciative of his help, and I am happy to report, almost one month later, my mom is doing so much better! I know it’s not for everyone, but if you’re interested in learning more, I highly recommend giving them a call or dropping by the shop for more information on their CBD.
If you’re not sure what to get the culinary artist (or the semi-crunchy mama) in your life, I recommend a gift card or curating an assorted basket of fresh spices and herbs from The Natural Spot! If you aren’t local, you can place an order over the phone. They ship to anywhere in the US!
