While I wait for Jen to complete an interesting post about all of the useful herbs and weeds she has discovered growing on our new property, I will tell you about an incredible sun hat that I have been wearing faithfully when outside in the New Mexico sun – Coolibar’s Savannah Wide Brim Hat.
I have no interest in or association with Coolibar.com. I discovered this company through a google search shortly after writing a post about using St John’s Wort oil to heal sunburn. (The visor obviously wasn’t working and I was dipping into our inventory far too frequently). With it’s almost 5 inch brim, the hat keeps the sun off my face and the back of my neck. And it’s lightweight and comfortable to wear. The only problem is that it reduces your field of vision so you need to be careful! The hat retails for $35.95, and for this fair-skinned goat herder/gardener, is worth it.
