I’ve long been a believer in organic, non-gmo local eating, which stems from my understanding of our connection to Nature, our reliance on healthy eating of natural foods, and from the study of our modern food; it also helps that I have a few amazing (and hippie) folks in my family who share their wealth of knowledge. The year 2017 marks my first full-go, large venture into creating my own organic and completely sustainable garden, and while I’ve gone through the typical trails any first-timer goes through, I’ve also grown to deeply appreciate the natural growing process. It’s not only fulfilling to see all your hard work take shape, but there’s this amazing, special feeling that I receive from eating my own homegrown and fresh vegetables and herbs.

Do you know what you are putting on (and in) your body?
The beauty business relies on cleverly crafted marketing campaigns that convince consumers that any problem can be fixed with the right product. Limp and fine hair can be voluminous, wrinkles can fade, lips are kissably soft and acne will forever disappear. As each product fails, consumers purchase others without question. Bathroom cabinets are often stocked full with the latest beauty products that are slathered onto the skin every day. However, consumers don't know that many chemicals found in these products can be readily absorbed by the skin, traveling in body through the bloodstream. In fact, US researchers report that one in eight of the 82,000 ingredients used in personal care products are industrial chemicals, including carcinogens, pesticides, reproductive toxins and hormone disrupters. These chemicals are applied and absorbed by your skin every single day.
