Post image for 5 Natural Cures For Sleeplessness

Image source.

It’s 4 o’clock in the morning. Your eyelids are the heaviest they’ve felt in weeks. All you want to do is drift off into a peaceful, dreamy sleep, yet somehow, you’re lying in bed, wide awake. Read more »

I have suffered from bad sleeplessness for ages but then my yoga teacher taught me something last week that has helped me so so much. You simply lie down on your back and put your legs up vertically against a wall. It is also nice to have a cushion just underneath your lower back. Close your eyes and put your hands on your stomach and just lie there like that for 5 minutes. What happens is all the blood eventually comes down from your feet and legs into your upper body which makes you more relaxed and sleepy. I do this right before bed, it works wonders :)

What helps me sleep is my room being as peaceful as possible. I don't have a computer or t.v. in my room. I feel like without those distractions it helps calm my mind. For me, just having a computer near by makes me think I still could still be working on it. So with it out of sight I can rest and not think about it. If I am still having trouble sleeping, listening to music on my ipod helps. Putting on some relaxing songs brings on the zzz's.

Post image for How To Make Your Own All-Natural Lip Balm

UPDATE: This post originally ran on September 20th but with the cooler weather in the air we wanted to share it again!

Fall begins this Saturday and along with cooler weather comes the season of chapped lips.  I won’t go anywhere in winter without lip balm or chapstick, and I go through a lot of it.  Read more »

What's another alternative for vitamin E oil?
Andrea Hudson -May 13, 2014, 7:45PM
P.S. Here is a website that lists essential oils that are ok to use on the lips. http://www.wholesalesuppliesplus.com/StoreCategory.aspx?CatalogID=18&GroupID=822&CategoryID=2160&CategoryName=Essential+Oils+-+Safe+for+Lips Essential oils are very potent so you definitely wanna be careful with them, especially when it comes to sensitive skin areas like your lips and with ingesting them. Hope this helps anyone venturing to make their own natural lip balms. : ) TurtleCreekStore.com

Post image for How To Bring Holistic Beauty Into Your Life

I’ve always been intrigued by the holistic way of living and I try and practice it as much as I can. I always get tied up with the thoughts of “are my work outs enough,” “Do I need to run more,” “do I need to be working out every day in order to be healthy,” then I came across the holistic approach.

I was so happy to see this article on here. Jemma, you really summed up the philosophy about following a path of feeling good rather than dragging yourself through "should's". I have a few suggestions for Cierra about resources. First there is my own site: http://greenbeautyteam.com Other favorites include: http://thehealthybeautyproject.com and http://www.mindbodygreen.com/ Hope that helps!
Cierra -Oct 16, 2012, 10:13PM

I don’t know about you but when I discovered dry shampoo it was like a whole new world… just a quick spray and your hair looks clean and fresh. It’s a live saver if you’re short on time or traveling, but as we all know it can be pretty pricey! Read more »

The "Dark Side of the Moon" tutorial reminded me so much of a "Witchy Woman" black and white editorial I saw in Vogue or something several years ago. It was wonderful, I wish I could find it again. Thanks for making the video.

Why are people looking into the meaning of these jewels so deeply? Has no one ever seen pretty jewels wore simply for a fun purpose? Theyre not trying to take something "sacred" and make it playful. Its body art---like temporary tattoos. Its not that serious
