Post image for How to Wash Your Hair with Castile Soap

In the world of natural beauty, changing up your hair care routine can be one of the toughest to achieve. There’s no set regimen that works for everyone, and the potential detox period can be enough to make you give up on the spot.Read More

Sorry - I gotta disagree with "so" who left the first comment. I think this blogger's picture above looks amazing. Her hair is expressing itself with texture and bounce. To me, it looks very lively. Part of realizing natural beauty is being able to recognize health. This sometimes means a little re-envisioning of beauty too. Do you think those goddamn Pantene hairstyles are what we're trying to achieve anyway?

Just a thought: go ahead and mix Castile soap in purified water, but you're still rinsing and washing in straight up tap water. So you don't really have to go the extra mile (and dollar) using purified water.

Post image for Exploring Meditation

Why do we meditate? And what does it look like for someone who doesn’t “meditate?”Read More

My mom is meditating since 3 years now. She is doing a meditation called "satsang", it's a meditation from the heart. You have to focus on your heart (like it's a light, a source of power) and be silent during approx. 30min. Every year, there is "retreat" in India (it's totally free (all sessions actually), but you can donate, if you want) where you will have the chance to meet the "master"... My mom said she didn't believe in a "master" (we don't believe in God in our family or in something divine (except nature and Humans), so it wasn't easy at all to believe in the power of a divine alive man giving you the energy and the vibration for a better meditation.. It was more like "is that a joke?!") but when she was in front of him, she felt something different, something she never felt before. She thought he is one of the rare person able to use more than 10% of our brain.. Not 100% of course, but a little more than anybody else and it makes the difference. And that's thanks to the meditation. The goal of this kind of meditation is to have a maximum of people doing it to create a mental force to eradicate terrorism, war, violence, hate, etc. from this Earth. I don't know i fI believe, even if I want to but that's the most beautiful message I never heard :) So I tried one week ago and I have to say.. I will continue. I felt myself like vibrating. My heart was vibrating. Like I wasn't here. I was somewhere else, but I can't say where. And nobody around me (we were 20-25 in the room). I also had no notion of time (like 30 minutes became 5). It was really strange. I can't really explain. And I felt relaxed after that. Relaxed and calm and mature. But I like to believe it could bring Peace on Earth :) Imagine.. I don't know if it's possible, but I come from Belgium, we just had terrorism attacks a few days ago and I feel insecure right now. If it can help me, I want to imagine :)

With all the chemicals in the food we eat and the skin care products we use, it's high time we go all-natural and avoid diseases that go with long-term use or ingestion of harmful chemicals. Rej

After reading this, I search for more information about chamomile and found great number of advantages it can bring to the skin. I always love to see natural ingredients being used for our skin. And yes, choosing products with natural ingredients should be a wiser choice, not only for the skin but also for our health.

I cherish this shading and stroll through, however I wish the photographs weren't so intensely sifted, it made it truly difficult to see the hues and what Lena was doing to the hair.
