Healthy meals can be simple and tasty!
So much emphasis gets placed on our digestion that we don't talk about our skin nearly enough.
Our skin is an important organ of elimination, and the largest organ of the body. Therefore it should be nurtured and loved just like any other body part.
Did you know that within literally seconds of applying anything to our skin, it enters our bloodstream and travels to all major organs? That is pretty profound considering how much our skin is abused.
It is important to use products that are free of poisons and chemicals such as parabens, pthlates, sulfates, and anything synthetic. When we use these things on our skin, we are at risk for endocrine disruption, cellular damage and we put a huge burden on our other internal organs.
My absolute favorite products are pictured above, the first being Herbivore Botanicals. These products not only smell amazing, but are made with 100% natural oils and essential oils. My favorite is the Jasmine body oil, but there are so many more to choose from.
Next on my list of favorites is something you may have heard of already and that is Booda Butter! I use this for my lips because it is all natural, safe, and contains just a few ingredients. These products are simple, and I like it that way!
And finally, the best facial care I have used by far...Acure! This stuff is light, smells great, and contains absolutely NO chemicals!
All of my favorites listed above are 100% natural, paraben free, sulfate free, petroleum, phthalate, silicone, synthetic fragrance and cruelty free. Everything is vegan and 100% biodegradable too.
Eating a plant filled diet is amazing, but even more beneficial is the use of herbs in our life. Herbs assist the body in strengthening, toning, and detoxifying organs and body systems on a very deep level. I would personally be lost without them!
I purchase most of my herbs and herbal products from a very reputable company called Mountain Rose Herbs. I have been buying my herbs from here for many years, and I have never been disappointed! They have organic, high quality medicinal herbs, and always strive for the best quality products and service.
