Such an interesting remedy! I wonder if cinnamon also has some skin benefits?

If you're ever looking for a good book on spices and their culinary/medicinal uses, try the Illustrated Encyclopedia of Herbs by Jessica Houdret. It's an amazing resource for stuff like this.

Looks lovely and an inspiring idea! Will definitely try :) I have used coffee scrub for body but not face as I thought it might be a bit rough, but with the oils and in this form it could work wonders!

Susan, you could switch out your aluminum pans for stoneware

The heavy metals are coming from the chemtrails. Aluminum in your deodorant and cookware are the least of your problems. Please educate yourselves.

Attar oils have always been a tradition and a childhood memory to me. My grandfathers usually use them before heading to the mosque for Friday prayers. Currently, I use one too - honeydew attar oil! It's sweet and may be a little too strong for me but I love it!

Favorite pastimes: hiking and daydreaming about hiking! Definitely feel lucky to live in gorgeous Washington state where the mountain and seaside hikes are plentiful. ---Thank you for the beautiful photos from the trail!
Madison -Feb 19, 2015, 10:03PM
hiking brings me so much closer to myself and to nature…it definitely makes me feel amazing. I'm always on the treadmill and i get sick of it sometimes, so when i rediscover the beauty of being outside it makes me feel so energized and alive!!

I can't be on the road without bringing my favorite pillow from home to keep myself comfortable.However, I do need to eat better while on the road.
Anastasia -Feb 14, 2015, 11:33AM
This is an awesome find. I have a three-day moving trip coming up this summer to plan. What foods to bring, if we are driving a U-Haul and a car or just a U-Haul, what roads we will take, etc. When I travel, I am normally in the passenger's seat. The first several hours I have to sleep or I get car sick. Otherwise, my husband and I love to sing songs together. We practice harmonies, creating our own songs, or putting new lyrics to a favorite melody. One time we got 127 ants that go marching... that was a fun drive. I tend to avoid electronics on a drive unless. It's a radio. Even then, it's often nicer to have the radio off than on.

I have been eating raw for 6 months now. For me some of the bloating seemed to be an initial reaction that occurred due to the change and my body cleansing a bit. The only time I feel bloated on the diet now is if I overdo it with cruciferous vegetables (cabbage, broccoli, kale, cauliflower, etc.). This is where fruit helps out. Just a tip from my experience. If you are looking for more raw recipes check out my blog!
fp joanna -Jan 24, 2015, 8:42PM
Hi Maddie! Why yes, yes I did. I added overnight oats to my daily diet and that seemed to help a little. However, after the two weeks of raw food, I added quinoa and black beans. I also started steaming my spinach and kale which made it easier to digest, for me. Everyone reacts differently -- I'm so happy that you found a plan that works for you and that you are feeling great! xx
