Genuine Oregon Mistletoe
A Perfect Gift for the Holidays
When I was a child, my father and I came up with the idea to sell mistletoe to raise money at Christmas with the boy scouts. We went door to door selling wreaths, and mistletoe with a simple red bow. It was a very successful and rewarding experience.
Many years later, and falling on hard times, I found myself wanting to provide a better Christmas for my loved ones, so I decided to sell mistletoe again. This time, I began selling it outside of shopping centers and at my father's tree lot. It provided me enough money to give them a wonderful Christmas.
Every year since, I have poured my heart and soul into mistletoe, maintaining a personal touch while guaranteeing local Oregon quality. I continue to offer free local delivery and take pride in working directly with you to meet your needs.
A few years ago, I met Ashley. We fell in love and are now happily married. She loves the holidays as much as I do, and was very excited to join the team to help make Genuine Oregon Mistletoe even better. We now sell mistletoe and holly in bulk and in smaller, retail quantities. We now also provide gift boxes individually or for resale. If you need a lot of gift boxes for resale with our prepackaged mistletoe sprigs, we'd be happy to work with you on pricing.
Ashley's vision for Genuine Oregon Mistletoe is to maintain the personal touch we take pride in while continuing to reach out to those who may wish to share in this wonderful holiday tradition. We are a family based small business and enjoy a personal connection with those we work with.
We didn't start out as an internet based company. We started out by making direct contact with retailers in the local community and plan to keep things that way. However, the internet has become a new way to share in this joyous holiday tradition. For us, it isn't all about the money, it's about bringing joy to other families during the holiday season.
From our family to yours... may your joy be bright and your blessings full!
Genuine Oregon Mistletoe
We've partnered with family-owned small businesses like ours to offer a unique collection of handmade items that you can bundle with any Gift Box or Gift Tin in your shopping cart.
Oregon Mommas is a blended company that creates handmade gifts from the heart. We are two entrepreneurial 'mommas' with businesses of our own: Ashley Huggins, owner of Oregon Mistletoe and Danelle Atkinson, owner and creator of Momma D’s Cosmic Creations. We have been friends for over 10 years, and now are growing our futures together. Our mission while creating candles is to provide the cleanest burning and safest candles on the market. Paraffin candles typically seem to be the most popular and affordable candles currently. After studying paraffin wax, they are actually quite bad for the consumer and the environment. It creates highly toxic benzene and toluene when burned. Both are known carcinogens. In fact, the toxins released in paraffin candles are the same toxins found in diesel fuel fumes and are linked to asthma and lung cancer. Paraffin is a bi-product of petroleum. These chemicals can cause irritation to humans and animals and cause allergies and asthma to flare up. Instead of paraffin, we use soy wax which is listed to be the healthiest option for candles, along with beeswax and palm wax. We also use 100% all natural, nontoxic soy that creates a smooth and creamy appearance and that holds fragrance very well. The fragrances we use are clean and exclude all materials known to be carcinogenic including all of those in the California Prop 65. Our candles are 100% phthalate free. The wicks we chose to use are flat, braided, lead free, cotton wicks with paper threads woven into the cotton. This ensures consistent burning with higher fragrance loads. There’s no need to worry about burning our candles in your home around your family and pets. Our long lasting candles burn approximately 4.5 hours per ounce and come in a variety of delicious scents. Give our clean burning, all natural, handmade candles a try. You will not be disappointed!
Momma D's Cosmic Creations
My name is Danelle Atkinson, owner and creator of Momma D's Cosmic Creations. The idea for this business came when I started to look within myself to find out what it is that genuinely makes me happy. Today, I can say that I am being my truest most authentic self. That is where I find my true happiness. I am the mother of two young children, Zoey is 8 and Willa is 2.
I grew up with a lot of crystals around me. I have always felt a strong connection with them and their healing abilities. This is where my interest started. A few years ago I started soul searching, trying to find out who I truly was and what I wanted to do with my life's journey. I decided to step out of my comfort zone and take a chance on myself. It is here that I created a business for myself. I was coming to the end of working for others and bettering their businesses. I balanced this for about a year, growing my "babies" while also working, and raising our girls with my fiancé Ryan. December 2020, I was faced with some big decisions. I decided to trust the universe and quit my job, letting go of all fear and doubt. This was the best thing I could have ever done for myself. I am proud of the example I am setting for my children.
Thank you for taking a moment to get to know me a little, and thank you for your support.
