Downtown Longview Clean-Up Day May 4th

Everyone is welcome to participate in this "Volunteer Community Event"!!

A great chance to meet new people, roll up your sleeves and help make our community shine!!

Volunteers will be clearing debris and weeds from the flower beds on Commerce Ave. from the 1100 block to the 1400 block.

Many citizens don't know the history of these flower beds. . . The planting beds along Commerce Avenue in Downtown Longview were built, funded and are maintained by individual citizens and business men and women.  These planting beds are a labor of love completely maintained and sustained through the efforts of volunteers from all over our community.  They are not a part of the Parks & Recreation, so they are not the responsibility of the City of Longview.  These beds rely entirely upon the time lovingly donated by individuals in our community.  Won't you come and be a part of helping keep our Historic Downtown Longview beautiful!!  Hope to see you there!

Milk & Honey Lotion On The Shelf!

West Main Renovation Project Smoothing Out!

For those of you who travel via the Allen Street Bridge, you'll be happy to note that the road construction is beginning to wind down.  Westside Highway (to Lexington) is now open and so is 3rd Avenue in front of the courthouse.  

I live in Kelso and travel that road every day!  If you're wary of running into traffic during the renovation, remember two alternate routes:

1) Take the Cowlitz Way Bridge instead.  If you're coming from Castle Rock it might be easier to take the very first Kelso exit (Exit 40) that runs along Huntington Junior High then take a right onto the Cowlitz Way Bridge to come into town.

2) Coming from Woodland, Kalama or Vancouver-Take the Highway WA-432 Exit (Tennant Way).  Follow that straight into Longview &  Commerce Avenue will be to your right.

Cocoa Mint Muscle Rub

Cocoa Mint Muscle Rub

Cocoa Mint Has A New Look!

Introducing my new Cocoa Mint for 2014!  Super moisturizing blend of Cocoa Butter & Coconut Oil; enhanced with the nutrients of Arnica, Menthol, Peppermint, Aloe Vera & Neem.  What a great blend for neck rub, foot rub and full body massage.  The cooling effect of the menthol and peppermint help revive tired, sore muscles & promote healthy blood flow.  Arnica is prized for its ability to relieve pain in joints.  Blended with natural beeswax which is highly compatible with your skin and yields a warm, golden color to the butter.  

Great sports rub for use after cycling, ball games, aerobics, yoga, hiking and more!  Beneficial for anyone who is on their feet all day as a cooling foot rub!  Don't forget the folks who are at the computer all day!!  This can be a welcome relief for neck tension after a long day of working at a desk too.

8 oz. jar for $18.99

Cocoa Mint Muscle Rub

Cocoa Butter-

penetrates the top layer of the skin called the epidermis. Cocoa butter can also reach the dermis, the middle layer. Cocoa butter is made from the vegetable fat of the cocoa bean. It is very effective for lubricating dry skin. This natural moisturizer also softens the skin. Herbal Luxuries writes that "cocoa butter is an excellent emollient that is well absorbed by the skin. Its incredibly high content of vitamin E is responsible for its beneficial properties." Vitamin E is proven to help with skin renewal and repair. Cocoa butter is also an antioxidant. Antioxidants protect the skin from free radicals or toxins that damage tissues at the cellular level. The antioxidant property also provides a natural preservative so cocoa butter lasts for a long time.


In Cremes rubbed directly on the skin to help relieve muscle aches and cramps, sprains, skin irritations, and headaches. Menthol creams are popular among athletes. Cooling effect on sunburn


soothing, cooling, stimulate nerves, improve circulation, athlete’s foot, acne, anti-bacterial, anti-septic


dry skin eczema, psoriasis
