We want to reassure you.
Yes, life is crazy, the world is crazy, it’s all crazy, but we at Ora’s Amazing Herbal are just keepin’ on slow and steady. You know, like the tortoise from Aesop’s Tortoise and the Hare.
Here is how we are doing it…
We shut down production for a few weeks when the first cases began to show in New Jersey so we could regroup and plan safe production. We are closely following the protocols of our health department and in an abundance of caution we have been taking the following measures.
We reduced our staff down to two, who had no suspected exposures, to complete order fulfillment over the past 2 weeks. They have otherwise been in self quarantine, like all of us, for safety.
All other staff have all been in self quarantine for over 2 weeks, including myself and Ronen (chief of production and husband), working from home.
We want you to know that we are all being very, very careful. So careful. Soooo careful that my house is cleaner than it has ever been! And so is my yard, and my socks are all paired up and my.. well, you get the idea….haha!
And now, in this difficult and unsure time, I am very happy to say that this week, we will be going back into production!
We are very small, so we are still able to produce safely, albeit more slowly, with just a few people. Who knew being a microbusiness would be such a blessing!
We have always followed good manufacturing practices (GMP), but we are now being hyper vigilant. We communicate openly, directly, and often with each other to make sure we are all identifying any outside risk factors that need to be managed. If any staff feels they may be of risk, they work from home for 2 weeks.
We wash hands often and are now wearing gloves and masks as well. We sanitize and disinfect all equipment before each batch.
We know you are all washing hands often, practicing social distancing, and, in some cases, adhering to quarantine or stay at home orders. We hope our products and our online community can be of some comfort to you and your family at this time.
Remember, wash hands often and moisturize every time. Even a few drops of Moisturizing Body Oil after washing each time can make the difference between having healthy hands and cracked, dry painful hands. Prevention is key when hand washing is this frequent.
The aromatherapy session is likely much needed as well.
I recommend a major hand shmear session twice daily. Once in the morning with Ultra Healing Body Butter and once at night with Salve. In between, a few drops of Body Oil after each washing. I hope this helps!
