“The Lord spoke to Moses, saying…
You shall make of these a holy anointing oil…
You shall consecrate them,
that they may be holy;
whatever touches them shall be holy.”
Exodus 30: 22, 25, 29
Thistle Farms and Magdalene owe a debt of gratitude to Joanne Cato, her family, and her friends! On October 10, 2011, a still that will be used to make our very own essential oils was dedicated by Tom Cato, Cathie Cato Renken, Hal Cato, Susanne and Todd Cato, Fred Grgich, and Bobby McAlpine, on the occasion of Joanne's birthday.
We consecrated the still with a beautiful ceremony filled with overflowing joy, happy tears, and excitement. This great act of love and generosity will allow Thistle Farms to be a commercial producer of essential oils, and develop new healing products. As the sweet smell of lavender fills the work space, we are reminded again that our cup runneth over!
