Hey Nourishing Tweens friends! I hope everyone is healthy and feeling okay both mentally and physically.
We are all going through a stressful time – so let’s do it TOGETHER. Many of us are feeling worried and unsure about the Coronavirus, or Covid 19, and I’m sure you have heard that there are some unkind people out there who are taking advantage of this bad situation to hoard supplies and price gouge. Unkind citizens, and unkind businesses.
But there are other people out there who are doing the right thing! I am writing this special blog post to let you all in on the special deals that are being presented by companies who want the best for their customers and care about helping people as best they can.
I will keep this post updated as I find more great deals for you and kind businesses that I want to support. Let’s thank them for doing the right thing by giving them our business! If you hear of others, please comment below so I can add them!
I’ve included good deals on hand soaps and household cleaners, wellness products, and activities for kids that are stuck inside while schools are closed.

Puro is a company that makes lovely non-toxic self-care products such as lotions and soaps. Their products are handcrafted and developed, fresh in small batches, in the USA by a Certified Clinical Aromatherapist and Master Herbalist using natural and organic ingredients. I have tried several of their soaps, skin salves, and aromatherapy rollers and they are really nice.
Right now, Puro wants to help soothe your skin from all the handwashing! Puro is offering a free travel-sized skin relief salve with the purchase of the regular size. From the company:
“Skin Relief Salve handcrafted with a calendula infused olive oil using our own organically grown calendula flowers. Calendula flowers are said to have antiseptic, anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, and antifungal properties along with many more. All these wonderful properties make this a useful healing salve for skin conditions, rashes and cracked dry skin. Finished with lavender essential oil to increase the anti-inflammatory and healing benefits and provide some analgesic relief.”

If you’ve considered learning more about essential oils, now is a great time to do so! Essential oils are such a helpful tool for your family’s wellness.

Computer Science online courses
Amazon has a program in which they offer computer science courses online to middle school and high school students. Because of the Covid 19 outbreak, they are free. It’s called the Future Engineer program. Click here to access free computer science classes.
Amazon was quick to react to Covid 19. They came down hard on their sellers that were trying to rip people off and blocked that sort of behavior. They are doing their best to help, such as offering small business loans to businesses in Seattle that have been hit hard by this crisis.
