  As we head deeper into fall, cold and flu season is fully upon us. Keeping the body well-nourished becomes especially important when our immune systems are being put to the test, and one important way to support immunity is with alkalizing foods and body treatments. Alkalizing is the process of bringing the body into balance by reducing acidity in the system. Human beings should always have pH levels that are more alkaline, our ideal natural pH is 7.365.

Water Before Oil

My skin has always been a little on the dry side. This is especially true during the fall and winter, and environmental factors like the recent wildfires in Northern California tend to exacerbate the condition, but my dry skin is is also the result of years of inconsistent skin care and not knowing the best way to treat the root problem.

3 Reasons To Switch To A Clean & Natural Deodorant

  You’ve been thinking of making the switch to natural deodorant. There’s that article you read about how the aluminum in your go-to brand is linked to cancer, there’s that rash you sometimes get after you apply, the “fresh” scent that isn’t from nature, the streaks and stains it leaves on your shirt, and that nagging feeling whatever it is you are using now might be keeping sweat and odor at bay, but it really isn’t good for you. You find yourself standing in the cosmetic section of your local health foods store, or googling “the best natural deodorant”. There...
