Deodorant – but Jena, the owner and creator of Agent Nateur is fantastic! Full of great information, how-to’s and more! Today, I’m here to chat about this hype, and how it is so incredibly true!

For Your Health: Dangers of EMF’s + Defender Shield Giveaway!

So, as you all know, I use electronics quite a bit. iPhone, laptop…I mean, it’s basically in my job description. Of course there are benefits to this – fun, useful apps, emails, iCal…the occasional black holes I like to call Instagram and Facebook – and oh, don’t forget Pinterest! But, with all of the new gadgets thrown at us nowadays, there’s (not surprisingly so) some serious complications that come with them.

Joy Provisions: Luxe Natural Beauty

IMG_9035-2

I’m always on the hunt for new, safe and clean cosmetics, skincare, body care–ALL THE CARE, basically–that I haven’t tried, and will leave me thinking “WOW! This is goooood!”. With that being said, I recently had the chance to connect with Mimi, the owner of Joy Provisions: an all–natural, luxury beauty shop. I’ve had many opportunities to work with clean beauty shops, all of which were (and still are) awesome! So, what sets apart Joy Provisions from the rest? Well first off, Mimi is the warmest, sweetest lady! She is down to earth, so sweet and incredibly professional. There’s something to be said about someone who can be friendly, relational and professional at the same. I feel like it can be a rare trait to find! I also love her company mission:

Support is a big thing. Not everything deserves yours. We only pick the products that truly do.

Wanna Win Naturopathica’s Amazing Gotu Kola Healing Balm Giveaway!?

Who loves moisturized, healed and healthy, supple, rich, buttery skin? I do, I do! Naturopathica is not only one of my all-time favourite skincare lines, but I have been using their Chamomile Cleansing Milk for about a year now, and I cannot get enough! But that’s another post for another time..haha. I want to introduce you to their miraculous Gotu Kola Healing Balm!

 

This balm is one of a kind! It blends the healing properties of Gotu Kola and Calendula with Raspberry Ceramides to help deeply repair dry, devitalized skin from head to toe. It is perfect to use under facial moisturizer for a flawless complexion or to enhance elasticity and prevent stretch marks during pregnancy. I personally love it for my extremely dry areas, such as my knees, heels, elbows and cuticles – but it has multiple uses!

 

Here’s a breakdown of the wonderful ingredients it contains:

GOTU KOLA: Modern herbalists recognize this plant for its strong wound-healing abilities, since it increases the level of antioxidants in newly formed tissue. Clinical studies show that Gotu Kola may inhibit the inflammatory process and aids in the wound-healing process by stimulating collagen synthesis and increasing tensile strength of newly formed skin.

CALENDULA: The anti-inflammatory activity of Calendula officinalis, especially in the treatment of skin disorders has been demonstrated is a study of radiation-induced dermatitis for the treatment of breast cancer. A 2001 study in France compared topical Calendula officinalis with the topical drug Trolamine and found that those subjects receiving the Calendula officinalis ointment experienced less erythema and edema as well as radiation-induced pain.²

RASPBERRY CERAMIDES: Rich in Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids, Raspberry Ceramides are some of the most effecitve modern ingredient technologies, helping reinforce a healthy skin barrier for improved skin strength and hydration.

ALL INGREDIENTS/INCI: Olea Europaea (Olive) Fruit Oil, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, Cera Alba (Beeswax), Zingiber Officinale (Ginger) Root Essential Oil, Silica, Lauroyl Lysine, Garcinia Indica (Kokum) Seed Butter, Mica, Raspberry Seed Oil/Palm Oil Aminopropanediol esters (Raspberry Ceramides 6 & 3), Carthamus Tinctorius (Safflower) Seed Oil, Hippophae Rhamnoides (Sea Buckthorn) Fruit Extract, Tocopherol, Centella Asiatica (Gotu Kola) Leaf Extract, Calendula Officinalis Flower Extract, Hypericum Perforatum (St. John's Wort) Flower & Leaf Extract, Carmine CI (75470), Titanium Dioxide CI Number 77891, Iron Oxide (CI 77491)

 

For centuries, Indian women have relied on the healing properties of Gotu Kola, passing recipes down from generation to generation. This versatile, moisturizing balm captures their secret to beautiful skin. I want all of the amazing, healing ingredients this balm possesses!
