Post image for 10 Home Remedies for Seasonal Affective Disorder

It bothers me when people think that Seasonal Affective Disorder is a made up thing. It is definitely real – it affects me and thousands of other people, most commonly during winter time.  Read more »

Hi, Sarah... Sure, not everyone likes summer or the heat, but SAD therapy can be applied with a light therapy box and doesn't involve heat or sweating or anything like that. I highly recommend getting a SAD light and there is research that suggests that taking Vitamin D helps as well. You can learn more about Seasonal Affective Disorder at http://www.sadlamps.org

Hello there... Just curious, but what about those of us who cannot stand summer. I despise sweating and feeling uncomfortable all summer long....summer is my mood killer. Guess moving to the mountains would be my best bet? : )

Post image for Holiday Makeup Tutorial: Golden Eyes

Holiday makeup can sometimes be overwhelming, either it’s too heavy or you just don’t know what kind of makeup actually goes with your perfect dress. For this season we love a simple gold eye that has a soft bit of magic to it, whether it’s just a simple gold shimmery eyelid or something a little extra special with glitter. Here, one of the girls at our home office shows us how to archive a simple gold eye. We’re definitely taking notes. Are you?! Read more »

I’ve noticed lately that my eyes are looking a little aged. Every time I look in the mirror I see small crow’s feet, faint dark circles, and sometimes they are a little puffy.  It isn’t worrying me too much as I know aging comes with life, but I do want to make a conscious effort to maybe try to delay the hands of time by using good skin practices.

IT should sound weird when you talk about how you treat your skin. More and more people arround me feel uncomfortable when talking about this kind of stuff. And to be honest I don' really know why. After all isn't your health the most important thing that you have to preserve.. Even names like SHAUs and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_2kp8DXCYpI talked about that.

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 :)
Kelly -Nov 02, 2012, 11:54PM
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 »

Chantelle -May 22, 2015, 7:26AM
Hello! I make my own lip balms at home and just want to share my recipe I use 1/2 teaspoon beeswax I get from EBAY it's cosmetic grade. 1 1/2 teaspoon OLIVE OIL just from the supermarket. I'm sure coconut works just as well but olive oil might soften it a bit more. Add a little more olive oil if it's too firm for your liking. And 5 drops of essential oil of your choice. Same method as above melt in a small Bain Marie style and pour into tube/pot. This recipe makes a normal size 5ml tube of lip balm :)
Jayde -Apr 27, 2015, 8:38PM
my dad is allergic to coconut oil anything i can use besides that? he's allergic to basically all nuts i can how ever use shea butter

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 love this post! I am interested in learning more about the holistic way of living. Anyone have recommendations of good books/blogs? Thanks :)
