We have a bee business where we harvest honey, create candles, and make bath and body products. You can book a 1 hour experience through Airbnb under Le Château de Chien to learn how to start your own bees. We offer an entire line of essential oils for dogs and their humans to organically deal with ticks, fleas, gnats, flies, and more.

Embellishments by Mary

This is the title I gave to one of my latest ventures.  I love clothes. I love coordinating outfits with shoes, purses & scarves. But sometimes I myself do something that damages one piece of the ensemble. Do you have that favorite outfit that you accidentally spilled something on and you can’t get it out? How about that dress with a tear? Or maybe that tunic you got paint on? If you are like me, you have all of these things. And for some reason, I just can’t bear to throw anything away. Especially when it can be easily remedied. So bring it over to Le Château de Chien and together we will remedy the issue and you will have your favorite outfit back, looking better than ever, and now one of a kind

Maison Abeille Essentials

I have been practicing Aromatherapy for 40 years. I truly believe that this practice has kept me from becoming more ill or if ill from becoming worse than without it. This is something that I do daily. Not only for myself but also friends and the rescues that we have in residence at our 501c3 nonprofit, Petite Trésors Rescue & Sanctuary. Last summer I contracted Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever. This is a serious illness from a tick bite. Many people come to our Airbnb to stay with their dogs and hike in Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore. I created a tick deterrent essential oil blend for dogs and their humans as well as a number of other pest repellent blends. Since we also keep bees. It is extremely important to me that pesticides not be used at our rescue farm. Essential oils have been used for thousands of years. You can purchase our oil blends or schedule an Experience
