Small businesses need help at this time. We are in a crisis due to the Coronavirus and you can do your part to keep their employees and themselves in business. If you can afford it right now, check out all of the health-related items I picked from small business shops on Etsy. Each product costs under forty dollars. Help #STANDWITHSMALL and also check out the Etsy Editors' picks which will be different from my product picks below.

Organic Dried Elderberries from Eco Fashion UA
You probably thought this was raisins or caviar. No these are dried elderberries and elderberries are packed with antioxidants and vitamins that may boost your immune system. They are also used to make jellies and jams. Eco Fashions elderberries come from Ukraine. If you want to support a shop in The United States, try The Nurtured Leaf

Palm Repair from Monkey Movement
This hand treatment is for climbers so you know it can help us right now with all the hand washing we are doing every day. All of our hands must be a dried and chapped mess. Palm repair has natural ingredients that climbers trust to coat their hands without affecting their grip. This is a product we all can use at this time. 

Raw Unpasteurized Honey from The Spartan Table
This honey is from the "gods".  It comes from wild oak trees on Taygetus and Parnonas Mountains in Greece. The phytonutrients in honey are responsible for its antioxidant properties, as well as having antifungal and antibacterial traits. It is also an excellent sugar substitute for people who want sweetness without sugar. Read more about the story of where their honey comes from on their product page. If you are looking for honey from the states, check out this shop: Big Bottom Outpost

Turmeric Body Scrub from Moe Soft Skin
This is a time for reflection and self-care. We cannot let this virus stop us from taking good care of ourselves and what not a better way than treating our bodies to a body scrub. Moe Soft Skin says, "Turmeric has been used for centuries and can be used for many things. One very common thing Turmeric is used for is your skin! Turmeric gives your skin that extra boosting glow that your skin needs. It helps fight acne, scars, and wrinkles. Say goodbye to dull skin and hello to glowing, soft skin."
