One of the hottest topics, and a question we get almost daily right now - “how can I make my hair longer/stronger/shinier/fuller?”

'Tis the season for colds and flus!
If you've been following our raw skincare blog for a while, you know that we love honey as a skincare ingredient.
Honey is humectant, it helps the skin to hold moisture. It also has enzymes that help to break down dirt and excess oil without drying the skin.
We add honey to everything; cleansers, masks, scrubs...
Sometimes people are surprised by the recommendation, "won't it be sticky"??
Actually, on damp skin honey is not very sticky and rinses off very easily. However for those who would rather an even less sticky option - enter honey powder.
We've been using this recipe for years; it combats coughs, colds & congestion while encouraging a restful night's sleep.
A chest balm is worth the little bit of extra effort because it holds the essential oils on the skin, rather than having them be absorbed by the body. This makes them a) safer and b) more effective at combatting coughs & congestion all night long.
Ladies, this one’s for you.
From skin concerns to mood imbalances to hormonal headaches; we’re covering it all in this article.
Hormonal breakouts aren’t unique in the way they can be treated; meaning you can treat all breakouts (at any time of month) with these few steps.

Finding the right natural products for your hair can be challenging.
First you have to find a product that fits your hair's needs; strengthening, hydrating, dandruff-treating etc.
Then, of course, there's the aroma. Many of the 'natural' shampoo/conditioners on the market still have synthetic fragrance in them which, if your anything like us, just won't cut it.
You want good hair products that work and smell natural; it shouldn't be that difficult, right?
The good news is, you can easily make your own natural shampoos & conditioners using nothing but clean, unscented bases and the perfect essential oils for your desired action and aroma.
Here's the secret cosmetic companies don't want you to know; making the perfect face mask is EASY, inexpensive & fun!
We're giving you four face mask options, depending on what your skin's craving right now.
Moisture, Detoxification, Revitalization or Calming Action
In Ayurvedic tradition, every day begins with a detoxifying self-massage; to help the body eliminate toxins that were cleansed from the systems of the body overnight.
Think of this Spring as one big morning wake-up. Detoxify & get your day started on the right foot ;)
Something about Spring sparks the possibility of magic. Tiny buds poking their heads out of the cold earth, birds reappearing in every tree and singing their hearts out; it's like a living fairytale.
And right now, who doesn't need a little fairytale in their daily life? Once again, it can be as simple and beautiful as natural scent. This blend will whisk you away into an enchanted forest and have you singing along with the birds in no time (or maybe that last bit is just us...)
