THe-Raindrop-Classic-by-Organic-Aromas

I’ve been crushing on essential oils for years, my friends.  Years ago, when I was struggling with stress and anxiety in my crazy-corporate job, I instinctively reached for essential oils.  I naturally knew that I did NOT want rely on anti-anxiety pills at that point.  So, I started to explore natural remedies such as a plant-forward diet, to more holistic approaches to managing stress.

Non Toxic Skin Care | Ayurveda | Food For Your Skin

Screen Shot 2016-01-24 at 9.29.04 PM

Hi Friends!

You know that about 5 years ago I made some significant lifestyle and diet changes in my life.  This was in response to the extreme anxiety that I was dealing with. At the time, I thought it was my high-stress job (and it certainly was). But it was also connected to my diet. So, I educated myself and made some significant changes to start the repair process and I succeeded.

It was during that time that I also learned about how everyday products that we use in our home can affect our health.  Skin care products are definitely something that you need to take a look at when you are embarking on a wellness journey. The chemicals in many of these products that the ability to affect our endocrine system.  In fact, we’re only beginning to learn about the long term effects that these chemicals will have on our overall health.

Today, I am so passionate about non-toxic skin care.  I am so delighted to have Lisa Mattan, Founder of Sahajan Organic Skin Care to talk about:

Peppermint Matcha Latte

Peppermint Matcha Latte

Last night, I took my girlfriend to a Gabrielle Bernstein event here in Vancouver. I hadn’t actually been to Gabby’s events before.  I subscribe to her Spirit Junkie app and I will often watch her videos as a subscriber to her newsletter/website. It was an amazing event. There was a lot of talk about fear and resistance which really hit me hard.  My girlfriend had the same impact.

It was a bit of a late night and I naturally wake up early so I wanted something warming but that wasn’t coffee. So, here we are…

Matcha is a fantastic tea from ground green tea leaves. It is high in antioxidants and it makes a great alternative to coffee. Matcha is still caffeinated but it doesn’t spike your energy levels and keeps a more stabilized and sustained energy level.
