Today’s guest on All My Children Wear Fur Coats wasBob Jenkins, Co-founder of Let Your Love Grow. Let Your Love Grow (LYLG) is a unique, one-of-a-kind product. For pet lovers that want to create a living memorial for a loved pet, LYLG is a scientifically designed product that neutralizes the sodium and pH levels of cremated remains (ashes) so they can be mixed with soil and plant life.
What is a living memorial? It is a special plant dedicated to a person or a pet’s life and legacy. It can be a potted plant, a garden or a beautiful tree. Living memorials can be a source of comfort and beauty as we remember those we love. Usually, a living memorial will incorporate the cremated remains (also sometimes referred to as cremains or ashes) of a loved one, along with a special plant.
However, if you take cremains and mix them with soil to create your living memorial, you may be disappointed. We learned that cremains are extremely high in sodium and pH. As a result, they do not release the nutrients necessary to sustain a living memorial. Let Your Love Grow blends with soil and ash (actually ground bone) to offset the natural toxicity of cremated remains by lowering the pH level and diluting the sodium level. You can’t accomplish this result with either regular or potting soil.
You don’t have to be a master gardener to use LYLG. The easy to use kits come with simple instructions and a measuring scoop to ensure you are using the correct ration of ashes to soil. You can watch this informative video to learn more.
If you decide to scatter the cremated ashes rather than create a living memorial, it is important to blend LYLG and the ash and allow it to sit for at least 90 days. This will allow time for the ashes to absorb the LYLG mixture and release the nutrients that will nurture future plants wherever you decide to scatter.
Let Your Love Grow works with all types of plants and trees. Special consideration should be given for delicate plants like orchids and roses.
Let Your Love Grow also works with cremated ashes that have been around for years. Sometimes people save remains for a future memorial or because they don’t want to leave the ashes of loved pets behind if they move. Cremated remains remain stable for years and may be combined with LTYG at any time to create that special living memorial.
The world is constantly changing. Countries like the United Kingdom, Australia and New Zealand are adopting LYLG because it is an ecologically friendly product that sustains plant life and keeps our planet green. Studies are also being conducted at various locations around the globe that show LYLG allows the earth to be returned to its natural state years earlier than with conventional products.
Let Your Love Grow was developed after Co-founders, Annette and Bob Jenkins lost their beloved dog, Silke. They wanted a way to create a living memorial to honor her memory. You can honor the memory of your loved pet with LYLG. Let Your Love Grow is available through their website or on Amazon. If you shop on Amazon, you can sign up through Amazonsmile.com and select Animal Care Trust USA, Inc. as your charity of choice.
Today's show featured Pet Perennials co-founder, Remy Bibaud. Remy and her partner, Lori, created Cherished Ones, LLC and Pet Perennials in response to their own loved pets that had passed away. They wanted to find a way to remember and memorialize loved pets that would be meaningful to Pet Parents throughout the world.
Their first product, the Pet Perennials Kit, is a patented process where you and your family can create a living legacy for your loved pet. The kit comes with everything you need to create heart and paw-shaped wafers containing perennial plant seeds and if desired, pet cremains. These wafers are then planted and each year will produce a beautiful floral reminder of your loved pet. This product is eco-friendly and helps our environment through pollination. The Pet Perennials Kit is a loving way to teach younger family members about the loss of a Loved Pet.
The Pet Perennials Kit was so popular, they then released the Healing Hearts Candle, made from lavender and chamomile. After you've enjoyed the candle, you'll find a suprise - a heart shaped gemstone that is a forever keepsake and daily reminder of the loved shared with your pet.
You can also purchase their Rainbow Bridge mug. The Rainbow Bridge mug is a useful daily reminder that our loved pets are waiting for us at the Rainbow Bridge - that magical place in heaven where all of the pets wait for their owners.
Their latest product is the Crystal Rainbow Suncatcher. This timeless keepsake begins with angel wings and transitions into a cascade of crystals, representing the colors of the rainbow and reminding us of the Rainbow Bridge. At the end of the cascade is a teardrop-prism representing the tears we shed on the day we welcomed our pet and those when we said our final goodbyes. There's a special option for horse lovers too.
New products can also be expected to help Pet Parents celebrate certain pet milestones; getting a new pet, a pet birthday; honoring a brave service dog, just to name a few. Stay tuned as these and other items become available.
Ordering is easy. You can buy for yourself or send a Sympathy Package to a friend or client. It's easy to sign up and there are no minimums or monthly obligations.
The Pet Perennials product line is a perfect gift from a veterinarian, groomer, pet professional or friend to celebrate the amazing legacy of our loved pets. Order yours today!
