My Favourite Natural Beauty Bits

SHININGMy path to natural health and holistic wellness didn’t start in the kitchen, but rather in the bathroom after I developed a terrible rash from using antiperspirant. Switching to a natural deodorant cleared it up almost immediately, but a new rash soon surfaced – this time on my eyelids. Itchy, watery, puffy eyes and skin were enough for me to trash all my make-up, lotions, potions, shampoos, creams and gels. That was seven years ago and I’ve never looked back.

Homemade Cashew Milk & Hemp Milk

Early on in nutrition school we did an icebreaker activity that involved sharing a food-related thing they were currently interested in (I was grooving on delicata squash at the time). One of my classmates shared that she was enjoying making her own almond milk which really impressed the teacher. Since there are few things I love more than the attention and approval of a teacher, I raised my hand when she asked if anyone else was in the habit.
