There are so many products to choose from these days. We want it all: performance, longevity, the right price. If you’re conscious of the environment, you want your purchases to make as little impact as possible. So what does this mean?

When we start to be aware of the huge amount of energy it takes to product a single item – in terms of electricity, water, human hands and other resources, it changes the way we view the world. You only have to watch one video of all the rubbish in the ocean to feel a little overwhelmed. We live in this beautiful world, but it seems so much of what we do is having a negative impact!

eyes light up

Highlight your eyes. They frame our face, they are how we connect to others. Attention to the simple things can make a world of difference. We like bright eyes, long lashes & tidy brows as basic steps to a great natural look. Forget the extras we’re going back to basics!

  • Eye health is important. Treat your eyes to natural products. They are sensitive and can react to chemical products.
  • Change your mascara and eyeshadow every six months to keep your eyes fresh
  • A layer of clear mascara on your eyebrows can work wonders!
  • If your brows are sparse, use a natural eyebrow pencil
  • Wash your makeup brushes. It’s a good idea to invest in new ones when they are starting to shed hairs and feel tough on skin.

universal & unisex

Our new range of botanical skincare is designed for all skins and genders. We have specifically formulated each product to enhance, repair and protect everyone’s precious skin.

Skincare is no longer just a ‘female’ thing – and we are thrilled! This makes total sense because skin is skin and all skin needs cleansing, nourishment and hydration. If there’s a guy in your life who could do with a skin boost, or if you want to share your products with someone special – here’s how:

  1. ginkgo micellar water – all-in-one cleanser to wash off the day, refresh skin after sleep, remove dirt, sweat and pollution. Use morning and night.
  2. herbal face tonic – this facial mist is great in the mornings to kick off the day. Also excellent to keep at your desk to hydrate skin throughout the day, or in a bag to help skin recover from exercise, sun, swims or travel.

emotions: help or hindrance on the spiritual path?

Inge Sengelmann is a somatic psychotherapist and certified ParaYoga teacher, initiated in the Himalayan Tantric lineage of Sri Vidya. ParaYoga is a living link to the ancient traditions of yoga, meditation, and tantra. 

“Once we engage on a spiritual path, and connect with the lofty ideal of enlightenment, it is easy to interpret our human emotions as representative of our lower mind and animalistic impulses. While, indeed, they are sourced in our desire to survive, reproduce and thrive, simply ignoring or suppressing our emotional nature can lead us to engage in what psychologist John Welwood termed “spiritual bypassing.” This can lead to disturbing, if not dangerous, rearrangements in our psyche that can lead to self-destructive, impulsive/compulsive behaviours, and even to psychosomatic disease and chronic illness.
