Sooner or later, Google will find all new spam methods. This will allow you to answer only those calls that come in on your forwarded toll free number and route other calls to different locations. But it seems Memorial Day wasn't important enough to Google.

Is it suppose to be ashwaganda? Because I'm only finding things for ashwagandha, and I don't know if they're the same thing

We all know that girl... Or at least have watched her, half dumbfounded, half in awe, as she glides across the streets with that perfectly imperfect mane. Read more »

Does anyone know the name of the model in this video? she's beautiful

Great Post. I see a lot of comments about how this look turns out just plain messy instead. I like to use keratin based products to avoid Bed-Head hair from looking too messy. It helps to keep my hair without frizz.

Post image for The Benefits Of Oil Pulling

UPDATE: This post originally ran on February 4th but wanted to share this useful beauty tip again! Read more »

Norrmull Purrsunn -Dec 13, 2014, 11:04AM
My oral hygiene is quite good with the usual ritual of flossing, brushing gargling and rinsing with salt water twice a day, three times over the weekend. However - I thought that I would "up the ante" and try oil-pulling. I have implanted this three times thus far, and I am really surprised at the result. I read the above comments and executed some 'basic' reasearch and reading on other sites and I have to agree that most comments are not exaggerating or 'theatrical' in their claims. The results are remarkable, one has to admit. My teeth feel cleaner but there are slight improvements in the 'colouration' of my teeth. Less yellow (I am a non-smoker but I do partake in the 'odd' (cough cough) glass of white wine) but, One has noticed an immediate improvement in my breathing, in that my nasal passages are always clear, even first thing in the morning when I awake from my treasured slumber and my scleras have appeared whiter too. I used the coconut oil, purchased from the local pharmacy (their own brand, which is quite reasonable in price). If the results and findings are significant for me at such early stages, one can imaging, the results after two or three months and even perpetual usage of coconut 'oil-pulling'. Once I have established a routine, I am going to invest in trying to locate 'organic coconut oil' for my long term 'oil-pulling' regime. I can only report on my personal findings, which I feel has been so POSITIVE thus far, but each individual will experience 'different' outcomes with this very 'cheap' and extremely 'effective' ablutions for optimum oral hygiene. All I can say is Good luck to those who are toying with idea of 'oil pulling' and do not 'throw in the towel' too early, as I am sure those benefits will outweigh those by not 'trying' this positive custom.

I had never colored my hair before trying henna on it. I have dark dark dark brown hair and the henna subtly changed it. It enhanced my natural red highlights, and gave a great light sheen to it. My hair also feels much softer and stronger after using the henna. I used 100% organic henna powder and mixed it with lemon juice 12 hours before I applied it to my hair. Then I let it sit on my hair for 4-5 hours before washing out. It was super easy and hardly any mess, I definitely recommend it. http://fabulosityfactor.blogspot.com

Steam has done wonderful things for my face. I splurged and bought the Dr. Dennis Gross facial steamer. I love it! It was definitely worth the $. It allows me to lay down and have the steamer steam my face – very relaxing.

Post image for The Key To Going All Natural

A year or two ago, if you were to look at my beauty cabinet, you’d have probably been dumbfounded by the overwhelming amount of chemical-filled products in there. Lotions and cleansers and self tanners and hair serums and deep conditioners and astringents… I could go on forever. You see, I’ve always been a lover of beauty products — I still am — but I haven’t always been such a huge advocate for natural beauty. Read more »

Post image for The Healing Power Of Olive Leaf

We’re all well aware of the oil produced by olive fruits and all of the health and beauty benefits it has — it’s a healthy fat that’s believed to help prevent obesity, heart disease, and cancer to name a few, and it does wonders in the world of moisturizing skin and hair. You can even use it in oil pulling to detoxify your body. But there’s something else the olive plant has to offer — something huge – and it’s all about the leaf. Read more »

I just did a quick lit review on PubMed and found lots of good research for olive leaf extract! I'm going to double check with my docs first, but am excited to try. Definitely glad you recommend folks ask their doctors- I had wanted to try kelp extract, but my doctor advised against it. Hopefully this will be a go! :)
Beka -Feb 17, 2014, 1:05PM
I take olive leaf extract, oil of oregano, & evening primrose oil everyday to help with my allergies & rosacea. It works wonders!
