Balance Your Menstrual Cycle with Mugwort

If you’ve ever been to a Korean spa, you might have taken a dip in the mugwort bath and wondered “what the hell kind of Harry Potter water am I sitting in?” This whimsical name is incredibly fitting for such a beautiful herb that is used for women's menstrual health...

Five Commandments for Healthy Curls

I've done my own hair for about 25 of my years on this Earth and I've got epic tales of trauma suffered by my hair: knots, awkward layers, bangs, heat, chemicals, and that one time I thought it would be great to let my friend in beauty school give me peek-a-boo...

The Benefits of Nettle

ABOUT PLANT HEALING I am beyond thrilled to share my first plant healing post. I am a student at The Gaia School of Healing in Southern California and has shifted the way I relate to the plant world and how I think about medicine. We learn in the Wise Woman Tradition...

How To Dispose of Toxic Beauty Products

Spa Day At Home: Therapeutic Facial Steam

  I've never had a professional facial; I know, I know. I'm a green beauty blogger - shouldn't that be at the top of my list? I do dream of making an appointment one day but most treatments at organic spas cost about 1/4 of my rent, at least here in L.A. But while...

Homemade Healing Body Butter

As a kid, summer meant never not being in a pool (AZ life, hollaaa) but at the end of a carefree day, I would come home with patches of itchy, dry skin. This summer has been reminiscent of my childhood; traveling, being outside all day, nothing to worry about except...

Yes, You Can Have a Waste-Free Wedding

Confession: I ADORED every moment of my wedding but hated every minute of planning. Imagine Daria trying to feign excitement about pastel shoes. That was me. For the last 8 months, since my wedding I've unsubscribed from all the bridal email lists, given away old...

Simple DIY Oil Cleanser and Makeup Remover

In the spirit of spring cleaning, I've been purging and simplifying all aspects of my life. Clearing out the unnecessary really does clear the mind (can you tell I've been doing a ton of Yoga? Hehe). While I love luxurious, rich products, lately, my skin has been...

Quit Fast Fashion, Part II: Dress Clean!

In part one of this post, I provided loads of information about how the majority of the clothes we wear are made; it's not pretty and not surprisingly, cheap merchandise comes at great expense to people and the environment. In exchange for reading through that heavy...
