How to Heal Bumps + Bruises naturally with Vanilla Extract

A bruise (or contusion- a hematoma of tissue) is a discolouration of the skin caused by damage or trauma which generally follows a fall or accident. Bruises are most commonly caused by broken capillaries/localized bleeding below the skins surface. Bruises that are visible due to discolouration are generally just below the skins surface. Though some bruises do result lower and aren’t visible, they are less common. Once a bruise is formed, your body will begin healing and resolve the wound via the immune system. But there are non-invasive and natural ways to help speed and support this recovery.

Its that time of year again! Black Friday, Cyber Monday and Holiday sales are usually when I re-stock my shelves with some of my most tried and true favourites. It’s also a great time to shop for gifts for family and friends. That being said, with all the buzz and excitement surroundingS these days of savings, remember to be mindful of consumption. I tend to use this time to really think about what my all time favourite green beauty and wellness products are and what I really need and will use. Don’t go broke over a good sale, but instead be mindful of what you truly love to keep on your shelves.

That being said, I have made a list of some of my favourite green beauty and wellness shops who are taking part in the Holiday sales. I’ve included some of my favourite products from each for inspiration. I am always available to answer questions, simply comment on the post below, send me an email or Direct Message.

October Detox Box Reveal: Kjaer Weiss Luxury Makeup

Oh no big deal.. nothing to see here.. just KJAER WEISS in the Detox Box this month.. did anyone else’s jaws drop? This might be the first time I ever have seen Kjaer Weiss in a subscription box at a discounted price. For those of you who haven’t been introduced to this brand yet. Kjaer Weiss is a high end luxury green makeup brand that creates refillable makeup products. Every single one of these products are refillable and can be purchased at a lower cost once you’ve got your hands on the beautifully designed metal containers. They are heavy and “weighty”.. one of those things that feel so good to hold (am I alone on this? Is it weird?) and they have that magnetic closure that keeps that from opening all over your purse.

Health Benefits of Magnesium: Signs & Symptoms of Deficiency + How to Supplement for optimal well being

The majority of the population is deficient in magnesium, an essential mineral which contributes to the functions of over 300 biochemical responses in the human body. It is touted as being one of the minerals that we desperately need to incorporate as it helps relieve a multitude of symptoms of various conditions for those who are deficient. Magnesium is a mineral that I promote strongly in my household. It’s a mineral that often goes missed in many holistic medicine cabinets. There are a multitude of ways to supplement magnesium and so, I’ve put together a guide on Magnesium and why it can be so important for us to ensure we get the right amount.

Healthy Banana Muffins Recipe: Free of Dairy, Egg, Soy, Refined Sugar, and Gluten

I’ve had to switch up my diet since having my second baby. After discovering at 6 weeks old that my Son has a cow protein , soy and egg allergy, I had to remove these from my diet. Since then, I’ve been adjusting recipes to fit my strict guidelines but have had some real success with some! Banana muffins are something I can’t get enough of and when they’re baked with healthy ingredients it just makes them that much better!

With this recipe I was able to switch to almond flour, swap refined sugar for maple syrup, substitute flax for eggs, and use homemade apple sauce and coconut oil in place or butter/shortening. This recipe makes for a much healthier alternative and one that everyone can enjoy!

September Detox Box Reveal: Naturopathica Skincare

September’s Detox Box was a throwback to a brand I haven’t used in years, but it was one of the brands that introduced me to green and effective skincare. I fell head over heels with their pumpkin enzyme peel years ago and this box became a throwback for me. Back to a brand that creates beautiful herbal and botanical goodness. The 3 products in this months subscription were no exception. I’ve been using all 3 both day and night with amazing results in terms of redness relief and hydration! My skin is so dewy and plump! So here are my thoughts and if you have a chance to grab this one still, I personally recommend it:

Live Botanical Organic Skin + Body Care Full Guide & Review

Live Botanical has graciously offered a 15% discount code on their website

Discount code: ‘BLOOM’ at check out

I’ve come across many different green and organic brands through this process. It’s really a neat thing to see how creators choose to develop products and what they choose to use and blend. This process isn’t always seen by everyone but I feel it’s important to showcase a brand when they put their heart and soul into their craft. Often times I find products that are blended with “trendy” ingredients without much thought. Then there’s the opposite type of product creating, the kind that has someone behind it that dedicates every ounce of themselves to the process. They choose ingredients carefully, with thought, and having knowledge behind them. I have never found someone more dedicated to creating than Carolyn of Live Botanical.

Live Botanical is a small batch natural beauty brand that makes the most beautiful and effective products around. Carolyn harvests many of her own ingredients from the ground herself to create this magic and believes in the power of herbs that we can find close to home. Not only are these ingredients amazing, but they are grown and harvested more locally and reduce the carbon emissions of shipping ingredients overseas. It also provides first hand knowledge of the sourcing and quality of the product from the beginning of the growing process. Carolyn also prices her products incredibly fairly. There are so many reasons why I love this brand but the major reason is the quality of product. Some of my favourite body and skincare products of all time come from this line. So I am going to share my love of these here in a full guide and review of the live botanical line.
