We’re beyond pleased so many people out there are embracing juicing and food dehydrating – and after getting many requests for book recommendations we realised both practices can be a little daunting when you’re just beginning. If you’re lacking overall confidence right now, it won’t be for long if you turn to our book section!
We are big fans of all things rose – we’ve already written about the benefits of rose water and why it should be a part of your daily routine (if it’s not, take a minute to read the post – we’ll wait here).
Aside from smelling heavenly, rose is considered to have calming properties making it an obvious choice to scent DIY bath products or body scrubs and make a pampering ritual feel that much more special and relaxing.
We’ve just joined Pinterest and would love to connect with you there. This is how to find us – you can look forward to boards with our favourite healthy recipes (we have 2 juicers and a blender in our Echolife office kitchen after all!) as well as boards to offer solutions for every skin type and concern, and inspiration from farther and wider corners of the web.
We’re in Day 7 of the 21 Day Green Smoothie Challenge, and by gosh everyone is doing so amazingly well… Some of you are even going for 2 smoothies a day – in another 14 days we forecast sparkly eyes, glowing skin and bouncy energy aplenty.
Because you are all fantastic you’ve been sharing pictures and recipes for your green concoctions – especially helpful since to get maximum benefit out of the green drinks, we should be rotating our ingredients and greens daily. So behold a compendium of everyone’s recipes thus far, and a few other bonus links for inspiration!
After working up a sweat at the gym it’s important to wash off the bacteria sitting on the surface of the skin – and for the body a cool shower does just the job. Your face needs a little bit more attention though – or clogged pores, breakouts and irritation could soon be your skin’s fate…
A bath or foot bath is a wonderful way to relax, wind down, or for tired muscles to find relief. But did you know you can increase the benefits of your bath by adding pure unrefined sea salt to the water? Soaking in mineral springs or sea water has been practiced for centuries, and can be replicated cheaply at home.
Let’s get technical: our ultra pure green clay is classified as ‘calcium bentonite’ (also known as ‘Montmorillonite’ – don’t be puzzled: both names refer to the same thing). But our clay also contains a significant amount of natural sodium, which means it is absolutely packed with beneficial potent minerals.
How can you use our mineral-rich, all-natural clay? Read on.
