At the beginning of this year I made a resolution: By 2015 all of my makeup would be as organic and natural as possible (I’m just not ready to make my own quite yet) and cruelty free. Read more »

Thanks for sharing your insights! Natural skin products are difficult to come by and the different brands are hard to choose from. This makes my choice for the best organic products a little easier...

Lots of interesting tips here.. thank you. I have been converting over to natural products over the last 5 years and although not organic, Arbonne's products are very natural and offer amazing results. Their Its a long story mascara in black actually strengthens your lashes over time. I have struggled with very few lashes and very sensitive eyes my entire life and love the results with this mascara. Arbonne's products are Vegan, botanically based and made without parabens, phthalates, formaldehyde,gluten, dyes, mineral oil etc. Best part is getting these products at a discount with a 45 day guarantee https://www.arbonne.com/shop_online/showitem.asp?ProductId=7793&menuId=&withLinks=1

Jojoba oil a wonderful oil - it can be applied evenly and lightly as a serum at bedtime! Olive oil is my favourite to consume. Love it in salads along with lots of kalamata olives - delicious! Enjoy the article.

Elizabeth - there is a wealth of information on the internet. Start with some basic ground reading on the philosophies of Ayurveda which will be a great foundation to understanding why many of the ancient practises are great to incorporate into your day. Meara - they are they Novella Royalle bell bottoms from Free People! :) X x

Ayurveda reminds us about something that our ancestors did without thinking, naturally – to follow the rhythms of nature.

Clean hairbrushes and combs are a lot better for our hair than dirty brushes and combs.

Acne. It’s just something that happens when we’re younger. It’ll go away on it’s own. Right? But on my 26th birthday, when my acne of 13 years was at its worst to date, I must say… I begged to differ. Read more »

Sweet! Love this. I'm a vinyasa flow teacher and I definitely like to build heat with active flow. Careful with up dog to down dog, though. It's really hard on the rotator cuff, especially if you're not warmed up.
Taylor -Jul 15, 2014, 10:55AM
This routine is very similar to my yoga classes I take, and let me say that IT WORKS! I do it 4 times a week and am starting to see strong and sexy arm and core muscles :)

Post image for How To Detoxify With Calcium Bentonite Clay

Whether we want to face it or not, we are constantly exposed to toxin upon toxin in our daily life – both internally and externally – and sometimes it gets to be a little too much for our bodies to handle on their own. That, my friends, is where calcium bentonite clay comes to help save the day. Read more »

This is article very interesting! I will try your detox method, I am waiting your next Post! thankyou!

Just like our mother earth, I am becoming increasingly electromagnetically challenged. Clay may prove to be of great benefit to those, like myself, who suffer from Electromagnetic Radiation (EMF, EMR, EMS) which is now proliferating the planet at an alarming rate. I would love to experiment with Clay! Sadly though, even as a financially savvy senior, the cost of adding Clay to my daily routine, is not as yet, darn well feasible. Question. Can Clay neutralize "Stray Electrical Currents" -- a phenomenon that I believe is at the root of "colony collapse disorder" for many many species, including our own? C4st.org

So I went out, shopped, combined, and conquered. I absolutely LOVE these make up wipes. I love the scent I love how they get slightly sudsy and I love how there is the slightest astringent feeling left behind I'm guessing from the witch hazel. I am sad to say I totally agree with ^Stephanie and they really REALLY burn my eyes :( so what I started doing is just making sure I take it in the shower with me and rinse it away after I wipe my eyes or follow up with a splash of water from the sink. I think if mine we a little less saturated it wouldn't be as bad. But just the feeling of knowing I made these and how much my skin likes them is enough for me. Thanks Jana for posting this and bring on more home made skin care! xoxo summer http://indianpaintblush.blogspot.com
