Get on the Clean Beauty Trend for 2018

The holiday season is fast approaching and the countdown to the end of 2017 has begun. With that in mind, it’s time to start thinking about what you want to change and improve in 2018; what can you do to ensure a happier, healthier lifestyle?

Top 5 organic miracle products for beach-perfect skin

Summer is here and the holidays are just around the corner, which for many of us means sun, sea and sand. Long days sunbathing with the sound of the waves crashing peacefully nearby, sipping an icy drink and breathing in the humid salty air; this is often a time to recharge for the coming year. However, for many of us this time can also result in some unfortunate and dangerous side-effects, like dry, sun-damaged skin.

How to combat holiday excess the organic way

How to combat holiday excess the organic way

Holiday season is upon us; a time where many of us throw self-control to the wind and allow ourselves a bit of indulgence. Don’t worry, I’m not here to lecture anyone on the dangers of relaxing our standards a little. I’ll be ‘rewarding myself’ with second helpings and a few glasses of wine as much as the next person. So, how do we handle holiday excess in a way that doesn’t turn us into a Grinch?

Feminine hygiene products: The most overlooked threat to women’s healthcare

Feminine hygiene products: The most overlooked threat to women’s healthcare

Millions of women around the world consider feminine hygiene products like tampons and sanitary pads just another monthly necessity. We use them without giving much thought to the potential threats we are exposing ourselves to; perhaps the idea of ‘Toxic Shock Syndrome’ (TSS), a phrase we heard some time ago and never really understood, still lingers, but it hasn’t been a trending issue in quite some time, we think, so surely we don’t need to worry about it anymore. Surely if products being used by so many of us for so long posed any real danger, we’d at least cross paths with a few strongly worded posts on Facebook, or notice some serious debate in the public and governmental spheres?

Why you need to add Rosa Damascena Essential Oil to your beauty routine

Rosa Damascena, a type of Rose more commonly known as the Damask Rose, is the most widely cultivated for Rose Essential Oil, and for good reason. Damask Roses, cultivated mainly in Bulgaria, are the preferred variety as they contain the highest oil content and are considered to be the most luxuriously fragrant species of Rose. Rosa Damascena Essential Oil famously offers a host of benefits for all skin types, from dry, sensitive and ageing complexions to problematic acne and scarred skin, helping to soften, soothe, hydrate and rejuvenate the skin.

Turmeric: From ancient medicine to modern miracle

Turmeric: From ancient medicine to modern miracle

Turmeric, a spice we usually associate with golden, fragrant, robust curries and other South Asian cuisine, is currently making a resurgence in the health and nutrition communities. This is due to the increasing amount of promising results arising from Turmeric research in areas such as cancer treatment and prevention, cholesterol, heart disease, rheumatoid arthritis and bowel disorders. The benefits of Turmeric as an organic medication are largely attributed to Curcumin, a healing substance found in the spice which is also the source of its vibrant golden colour.

Why you should believe the hype: Organic Aloe Ferox gel, the natural skin solution

Why you should believe the hype: Organic Aloe Ferox gel, the natural skin solution

By now we’ve all come across Aloe Vera in many different guises, from skincare to shampoo, lotions, cosmetics, vitamins and even drinks. While there’s no doubt that this succulent, spiky little wonder has many valuable uses, it’s time for Vera to step aside and make way for its impressive cousin, Aloe Ferox.

Aloe Ferox, sometimes known simply as aloe or bitter aloe, grows naturally in the Southern African Cape and is 20 times stronger than Aloe Vera.

Not all Cinnamon is created equal: Why Ceylon is considered ‘True Cinnamon’

Not all Cinnamon is created equal: Why Ceylon is considered ‘True Cinnamon’

We sprinkle it on pancakes and desserts and mix it liberally into that ubiquitous autumn favourite, the pumpkin spice latte. We use it to flavour fragrant savoury dishes, as a preservative and as a health supplement. Our trusty friend Cinnamon sits in almost every kitchen, its unique, spicy aroma easy to conjure up from memory. The autumnal pleasantness associated with Cinnamon is probably the reason most of us consider it to be a harmless accompaniment - who doesn’t love Cinnamon?

Why it’s time to switch to natural hair dye

Conventional hair dyes have been at the centre of debate in recent years, with awareness of the potential harmful effects and incidences of serious adverse reactions to the products steadily rising. A turning point for many came in 2012, after the widespread news of 38 year old Julie McCabe’s massive allergic reaction to a chemical in her regular hair dye from a well-known brand, which eventually resulted in her tragic death.
