Why use natural products?
Your skin absorbs everything. When you use a chemical laden product you are taking each ingredient into your body. Using something natural ensures that you don’t create excess stress on your bodily systems and build up toxins.
how do i make the foundation last?
Using a lotion or moisturizing cream underneath the powder foundation can help it last all day! Apply a thin layer of moisturizer lovingly to your face and then dust with powder using a kubuki brush or your fingers.
do you offer foraging classeS?
Yes! If you are located in Vermont I offer personal one on one classes to show you the most common plants that are edible or medicinally useful. If you would like to learn more feel free to contact us!
am i actually making an impact?
Everything you do makes an impact. Even your motions have an affect on the Earth’s rotation! Jump and the Earth will push away from you, even if it is imperceptible. So naturally it makes sense that every product you don’t purchase won’t end up in a landfill. Each choice you make affects the world around you and those you interact with.
What is sodium bicarbonate?
This is a common ingredient found in “natural” deodorants but it can cause severe skin reactions in many people. Sodium bicarbonate, another word for baking soda, isn’t great to be putting on your sensitive underarms. Other alternatives, like arrowroot starch, also help to dispel odors and toxins but in a much more natural way.
but what if i can’t give up my products?
It truly is just about making small changes that you can live with. When you start thinking about the things that you do on a daily basis and become aware of the ingredients that you are consuming you make a slow imperceptible shift towards more natural. Over time your body will start to tell you that it cannot handle toxins or chemicals and you will realize that it is better not only for you but also the planet.
