Last Chance for Holiday Delivery!

As many of you move toward more sustainable living and giving, I wanted to reintroduce you to LüSa Organics, my artisanal organic body care company, and remind you that if you’d appreciate delivery before the holidays, today is the deadline to place your order.


We are a small team (really small!), based out of Viroqua in rural Wisconsin. Everything we create is made by hand, using organic herbs (often locally sourced) and organic oils. We never use synthetic fragrance oils, preservatives, or colorants.


Our team spent the past year transitioning our products into zero-waste and reusable/recyclable packaging, reducing our plastic waste by over 96%. It was a huge undertaking that has taken our business to a new level of sustainability, and we couldn’t be more delighted.

From biodegradable deodorant and lip balm tubes to refillable aluminum sugar scrub pots and glass oil bottles, the new packaging has been met with enthusiasm by so many.


If it feels good for you to share some of our handmade, sustainable, palm oil-free body care with those on your gift list, today is the deadline for orders! Visit our website, and stock up on all the sustainable goodness you’re wanting.

Use coupon code “HAPPYHEALTHY19” for a free gift with every order. (A holiday surprise, chosen especially for you.)

Offer good through Friday, December 13, 2019.

Thank you for supporting what we do, and cheering us on as we make these changes toward greater sustainability.

Giveaway: natural mosquito & tick repellent

20180508-DSC_1323 8.04.35 PM

As you have likely guessed, we spend a good deal of time outside – hiking in the woods, exploring the hills and valleys of the Driftless, and setting of for our favorite foraging, hiking, or paddling places.

Yes, I take my kids into the woods – desipte living in one of the most Lyme disease prevalent areas of the country.

Why the confidence? Because from early spring through late fall, we never (literally: never!) set out for the prairies or woods without applying our natural insect repellent, Shoo.

Day after day we rely on Shoo for tick, mosquito, and (when we’re further north!) biting fly protection.

We feel safe and confident when we use it, and so do our kids.


But that’s just my take. Here is what our customers are saying about Shoo:

“This is the best bug spray we’ve used, hands down.”

“I think bug spray is on the top of our always wearing list!”

“Best bug spray ever!”

“It’s our go to spray! It works and is safe for the whole family.”

“This is a summer must-have for us!”

“This is my all time favorite product that you offer!!”

“Best bug spray around. My family loves it!”


I’m hosting a giveaway for a 4 oz. bottle for you (and, if you choose, for a friend that you tag) on both the LüSa Organics Facebook and Instagram pages! Instructions for entry can be found on each page, and I’ll draw a winner next week. (If you don’t have access to Facebook or Instagram, feel free to simply leave a comment below and I’ll happily add your name to the drawing.)

In the meantime, order a bottle of shoo and add a comment to your order of ““SUMMER BONUS” to your order notes, and I’ll include a free lip balm of my choice when we ship!

Offer expires 6/1/18.

You can find Shoo (along with all of our outdoor essentials) here!

Safe, effective bug spray for the whole family. Effective on ticks, mosquitoes, and biting flies. #naturalbugspray #naturalinsectrepellent #rosegeranium #lymedisease


Going palm oil-free


It’s official – we’ve washed our hands of palm oil.

(Cue confetti!)

Beginning today, every LüSa Organics product is 100% palm oil-free.

It’s a change we’ve been working toward for years, and we couldn’t be more pleased. (All this, and just in time for Earth Day.)

Why did we make this change?

To put it simply: palm oil is unsustainable. (Read the reasons why here.) It’s an ingredient we avoid for our family when buying crackers or other packaged food at the store, so why were we using it in our soap?

Even if our palm oil was “better”, we wondered, did that really make it “good”?

Because despite the palm oil we have used for nearly a decade being certified orangutan-safe, certified deforestation-free, and organic, we didn’t believe that it was going far enough.

Because we believe that any added demand on palm oil (yes, even of the sustainable sort) increases demand globally.


Help us celebrate this milestone with free soap! For every 4 bars of our new formula soap you buy, enjoy a 5th bar free. Choose from our Classic Soap Line or Goat Milk soaps.

To redeem simply order 4 or more bars of soap from the categories above, then add a comment to your order notes of “PALMFREE for ME” and we’ll add the extra bar or bars when we ship.

Offer good through April 25, 2018. Retail customers only, please. Locavore soaps not included.


The logistics of making this change were boggling. Team LüSa rose to the occasion and pulled it of with style and ease. I’m so thankful for the unflagging LüSa family; our passionate, conscientious customers; and for successfully pulling off this colossal transition.
