Clean Beauty from the Inside Out

Adaptogens and herbal supplements. We hear about them all the time! They’re in smoothies and matcha lattes (my personal favourite), people add them to baked goods…they’re taking over! But why? What’s all the hype? Is this a trend? Well, not only do adaptogens promote wellness…but they promote beauty on the inside. And when you’re using quality, organic products – not only on the outside,  but internally –  your skin and body will thank you! As far as this being a trend, eh..I definitely think more people are coming onto the whole adaptogens in your smoothie and lattes deal, which I love! I think that it’s awesome more are becoming aware to the powerful healing abilities of plants! But, remember, too much of a good thing isn’t always good. So, to learn more about adaptogens, read on..

Pinner Test: Food Intolerance Testing + Results

Back in February I decided I needed to take some sort of a test to see which foods I was intolerant to. It had been almost 6 years since I had last been tested and the body changes quite a bit in just a year alone…so, it was time. I did a bit of research and finally landed on Pinner Test, one of the most accurate at-home Food Intolerance Testing Kits. I mean, if I don’t have to leave home to go to some creepy building to get blood tests, AND it’s still accurate, count me in! (Jk about the creepy building..maybe haha.) On February 6th, I received my Pinner Test and went straight to testing this bad boy out. I’m sure all of you are keen to know about how this whole ordeal went…right? Well, before we get into that, let’s chat about what Pinner Test is and how it works.

Essential Oils + Their Benefits

Hello lovelies! I have for you something a bit different today – it isn’t a review, however it is very relevant to the last review I did regarding Bali Botanic. Before I got into Essential Oils, I did a lot of research on them, figuring out what oils were best for your health/skin issues and more…of course that helped me out a bit, but there were (and still are) a lot of questions I had. As you know, we never stop learning and EO’s never cease to amaze me with their medicinal and therapeutic powers.

Essential oils are volatile liquids distilled from plants and organic matter like seeds, flowers, fruit, stems, bark, roots, and leaves. They can be used to heal and support your body’s emotional and physical well-being, typically entering the body in three ways. Application to the skin using a compress, a spray, a bath, or massage; they can be inhaled using a diffuser, dry evaporation, steam, or a spray; and they can be ingested either orally or by suppository. (Please take caution and note that the ingestion of essential oils is only recommended under the supervision of a licensed healthcare provider.)
