You shouldn't be putting essential oils on the skin around your eyes :( It causes irritation within the skin that you can't see or feel, but it can cause wrinkles to form more rapidly and skin to droop. Especially since the skin around the eye is the most delicate and thin. If you really want to lessen the stank of ghee, you can infuse it with dried herbs such as Ginkgo biloba which stimulates circulation, reduces irritation, relieves puffiness, and reduces damage caused by environmental stressors (sun, pollution). I know you guys mean well, but you really need to do plenty of research into the science of the skin and the many ingredients we use on it before creating recipes that could drastically damage someones face :(

How long do you use it for before replacing it?

I love konjac sponges, they are so good for your skin! I recommended konjac sponges to all my friends, because since I use one every morning and evening (i use it with aleppo soap) my skin is getting better and better. No dry patches, no blackheads and glowing skin. So good.

@fpcarrie It came out! My tub was just yellow for a few days, a combination of regular showering the sun doing a nice bleach job on it and my tub is back to normal! Also, I have to say in this dreary winter grey having a bright yellow tub for a few days was a great replacement to the lack of sun!
fpcarrie -Jan 19, 2016, 10:15AM
@Claire - we are so sorry to learn of your experience. Our contributor confirmed that she has never experienced this personally, but passed along the following info in hopes that you can rid your tub of any staining: http://www.apartmenttherapy.com/how-to-clean-an-old-porcelain-enamel-bathtub-or-sink-137148

Hi Jana! If I make the green tea + basil concoction can I use it then store the rest in the fridge for the days after? Will it work just the same? xo

Have you ever wondered if therapy might be for you?Read More

Calley -Jan 07, 2016, 5:48PM
This is beautiful. The way Haley describes her depression is very real, and very relatable. I know this feeling personally, and sometimes the best thing to do is to talk it out. Too many emotions inside that need to get out, and words are a great conduit of energy to release. I am an acupuncturist and it is a medicine that has helped me a lot in so many ways, and I hope to share it with other people as well, as it helps a lot with mental and emotional health. I have realized some people just really need to talk and share their story. It is a very healing modality. Thank you for the wise words. http://seedoflifeacupuncture.com

First, brava, Haley! Second, I love that this article was in the "beauty" category. Seeking inner health and being a beautiful person on the inside:) It just makes me happy. This whole article's existence makes me happy. You guys make me happy. Third, I'd like to add that most heath insurance plans, including Medicare and Medicade, according to people I know who have those plans, include mental health care. It might not cover extended stays at swanky rehab facilities, but seeing a therapist weekly for 45 minutes should only cost a co-pay. I also know people who can't afford the $15 co-pay, and one who has worked something out with his therapist to pay that portion when he can (when he gets extra shifts at work.) There are also places where one can seek out therapy for free: most colleges have mental health care if you're a student, staff member, or faculty member. I know that RVAP and DVIP (the rape victim advocacy program and the domestic violence intervention program) in my town both provide therapy for people who are working with them/ living at the women's shelter/ etc. Try calling a local crisis line or asking at your local library if you need help and can't figure out how to find it. Fourth, it's scary to start therapy sometimes, especially if you want to examine old wounds. Know that you can meet multiple therapists with different styles and personalities before you pick one to see regularly; not everyone gets along with every therapist, and that's okay. Also, you can talk to your therapist about your relationship, building trust, etc., even if you've never had a conversation like that before. "I'm scared" or "This is new to me" or "What are we going to do in therapy?" are all valid. They're a professional therapist; if they do anything besides listen to you and respond honestly and with understanding/ empathy, the world has turned upside down. On that note, it took me six months to tell my therapist why I was in therapy, but that was okay. I had a lot of shame and fear to get through first. And I did. Therapy has helped me a lot, and I'd recommend it for anyone looking to make changes in their life. If you're prepared to walk through that door and be even a little honest with yourself, then therapy is for you. (You can always try it and then stop if you don't like it; what's it going to hurt, really?) Okay, last thing, I promise: I finally get to toot my own horn a little bit. If you want to learn more about MY story and my journey with therapy, check out my blog at ikillmydarlings.wordpress.com. (Please don't be put off by the violent title. It's a literary reference.)

A month-long journal chronicling a return to yoga after eight years…Read More

Emily -Feb 10, 2016, 11:32PM
I stopped going to yoga for a few months and a few days ago after struggling with walking because of my arthritis, decided to try it once again. It is amazing what yoga can do. This article always inspires me to get up and yoga despite the pain some days are filled with!
Debra -Jan 07, 2016, 12:10PM
I found yoga in 1997 and it quickly spoke to me on so many levels. Over the course of the next 15 years I stopped and started my practice. In 2012 I was diagnosed with breast cancer. After treatment I was left depleted and lost. My neice visited me, and being a yoga teacher, she talked to me about going back to yoga. I did and almost 3 years later my practice is stronger than it has ever been.. It is sometimes hard to notice the subtle differences when I practice on a regular basis....but boy I can surely notice when I don't! To say yoga has had a healing effect on me would be putting it mildly. I love yoga. It challenges me every single time. Mentally and physically. That is different than saying it's hard. It has become a necessity, it has become the great love of my life.

I've been oil pulling for about 3 weeks with coconut oil and I absolutely love it. My teeth look so much whiter and I'm looking forward to more benefits of it.
Hayley -Feb 04, 2016, 11:17PM
I have done oil pulling previously and loved it..although after accidentally swallowing a couple of times I threw it in..I am worried I am ingesting more toxicity by doing it and accidentally swallowing than doing nothing at all! Maybe I should revisit :)

I love using a variation of the coffee cinnamon scrub. However, no matter how much I rinse myself and the bathtub, it always leaves a residue everywhere (including myself). I have to use a loofah to take it out, but it takes ages and leaves a mess. Has anyone else experienced this?
Sandra Manay -Jan 04, 2016, 10:20AM
Juicing is for sure my number one choice to stay healthy and feel good. I'm not big on smoothies, there's something about the texture I can't stand.
