Words To Sweat By Closing Shop 12/31/15

by Dana on December 1, 2015


When I started Words to Sweat six years ago, the goal was to provide functional fitness accessories for people no matter their level of fitness.

What started with a line of mantra workout towels grew into a company that also offered motivational t-shirts, infinity scarves, fitness jewelry, and humorous children’s tees.

Like any good workout, there were tough parts, but the end result has left me exactly where I hoped to be. But also like any good health and fitness approach, it’s time to try something new.

Words to Sweat by will therefore be permanently closing shop on December 31, 2015.

To all of the fans and customers over the last six years, I have appreciated every purchase, comment, and piece of feedback you’ve shared.

Thank you so much for your support.


P.S. If you have a favorite mantra bracelet or necklace you’ve been waiting to buy, now is the time to head over to the Words to Sweat by Etsy shop and pick one up.


I use coconut oil for a variety of things – both topical (goodbye itchy bug bites) and cooking-related (have you tried these deelicious spelt flour cookies?).

It has also been a running joke for a while now about how hot the house must be once the tub of coconut oil goes from solid to liquid form. And the San Jose area is known for having very hot Summers, so I was prepared for the oil staying liquified for me until Fall.

But I looked over one day recently and found the above jar of oil had gone back to its previously solid form which meant that the house temperature had cooled and I wanted to know just how much.

So I looked up the melting temperature of coconut oil and learned that it’s 76 degrees Fahrenheit.

Now, I realize this isn’t an exact science, but it is a good visual to understand just how hot the inside of the house may be (in literal degrees of comfort).

Coconut oil wins again!
