The Oil Cleansing Method for Radiant Skin

Consider adopting the ancient method of washing the skin with oil. It may seem strange, washing with fats. People think that oil will leave their skin feeling oily and less than clean, yet the exact opposite is experienced when washing with the right oils. Beauty glows with a balanced skin microbiome. Washing with botanical oils gently and effectively cleanses and exfoliates the skin while maintaining moisture and the integrity of the precious skin top layer.

Detox and beautify your hair naturally

In this video, I share some of my thoughts and ideas for a real natural hair care regime, with a focus on people who are sensitive to chemicals and harsh weather conditions.

The Rise of Low Consumerism

One of my passions is low consumerism – consuming only high-quality products, with little environmental impact, that I need and delight in using.

THE POWER OF WATER

IT’S NOT JUST H2O – IT CAN BE POISON OR THE ELIXIR OF LIFE, DEPENDING ON WHAT KIND OF MEMORY IT CARRIES  We’ve heard this many times – 72% of the body is water. And another 12% is earth. Another 6% is air. Another 4% is fire. The remaining 6% is space. If we know how to keep the first 4 elements well, then our well-being, health and longevity can be enhanced. And if we just control the waters in the system, great things will happen. Again remember, 72% of the body is water – that’s huge! And this body is...
