5 Conscious Cold Remedies

It seems we are right in the middle of cold and flu season. Thankfully, my crew has so far escaped it, but many of our friends haven’t… This year, instead of reaching for that nasty bottle of over-the-counter symptom suppressant, why not try to heal and relieve what is causing the problem?

5 Conscious Foods to Say Yes To

My awakening to conscious living and ultimately the completely different, healthy lifestyle I am living now, began with food.

When WaxHead contacted me to review their organic, safe for our bodies and our oceans, sunscreen, I first checked out their website GoWaxHead.com and that is where I saw the Sun-Defense Foods...
