Santa Barbara, CA (PRWEB) January 12, 2008
Beautifully designed scented stationery, soft foot mules that can be heated to keep toes toasty in the winter, invigorating herbal infusions for tub and steam facials, and reusable, eco-chic bamboo shopping bags that are easier on the environment. These are but a few of the pretty, relaxing and invigorating bath, home and items especially selected by e-tailer Maria Carbonell-Elliott, founder of SamaLiving.com.
The inspiration for Sama (which means "tranquil" in Sanskrit) Living comes from Maria's peaceful lifestyle that includes " a calm mind and soul that allows love and creativity to flow through everything I do. Having pretty things around me is inspiring. Living in Santa Barbara, walking in my door and smelling fresh flowers or essential oils burning from my candle, enhances my calm state of being and hopefully other people's as well."
Maria sources from small, unique companies and individuals to find items that are thoughtfully designed, well made, and fulfill her goal to provide items that contribute to a person, as well as the planet's, well-being. Some of the companies she partners with, such as Daniella bodycare, Sharon Bolton Scents, and Organic Fiji give back to organizations such as the Arthritis Foundation, Teddy Bear Foundation, and The Invisible Children (of Uganda). Portions of sales from Sama Living also "give back" to Women for Women International and loans funds to entrepreneurs around the world through Kiva.org.
