Benefits of Oil Pulling

January 19, 2017

Recently, I tried out oil pulling and I found it interesting enough to share with you guys. I will break this post down into sections and try to cover important aspects of oil pulling. I hope you learn a thing or two. What is oil pulling? When I looked up ways to remineralize the teeth, I discovered that natural, holistic websites such as Wellness Mama amongst others had posts on the…


Have You Ever Wondered What Caesarean Section Feels Like? Watch Ariyike And Sisi Yemmie Talk ABout Their Experiences

September 7, 2016

One day, my mother casually mentioned that she had me through caesarean section. She mentioned something about me being too small. I was quite young when she told me this and I didn’t think too much about it. Ever since then, I’ve been avoiding the word like a plague and never bothered to read up on it. I don’t know why either. If you are anything like me, the new…


12 Wellness Services Available In Lagos

September 6, 2016

I love visiting spas. Every month, I try to give myself a spa treat just to reward myself for my hard work. Initially, I thought it would be a challenge to find affordable spas but when I started looking, I realized that a lot of them that have popped up. Oh well, good for me then. Since we have become more aware and conscious of our health and wellbeing, it’s only right…


DIY – How to make herbal infused oil

July 22, 2016

Remember my interest in herbal infusions? Well, this time, I decided to take it up a notch by using a mixture of herbs – Basil, Sage, and Parsley. Of course, I was excited to infuse them. So here’s what I did. I got an empty honey jar – improvisation, people – and a base oil. This time, I used Sunflower Oil because of its shell life. Next, I filled the jar with…


DIY – How to make Neem/Camwood Black Soap

July 21, 2016

I just realized that I have all of these Ayurvedic powders that I hardly use. Not that I don’t use them at all, they are just not my priority in my skincare routine. They are mostly additions. Supplements. I decided to sort all the potential additions in my stash to my black soap mix. In no particular order, they are: Turmeric, Activated Charcoal, Camwood, Neem, Oatmeal and Hibiscus. This time, I chose Camwood and Neem because I wanted a mix…


Witch Hazel and its many uses

June 15, 2016

I cannot stress the importance of conscious living enough. I recently switched up a key part of my skincare regimen and that had me substitute my BodyShop Tea Tree Skin Clearing Toner for the much simpler Thayers Witch Hazel Alcohol-Free Toner. My artificially green toner was doing a good job but a good, more natural substitute was not a bad idea. I have often seen ladies prescribe witch hazel as a…


DIY: How to make Rice Flour/Powder

June 14, 2016

Just the other day, as I was strolling through my Instagram feed, I came across this really awesome recipe. It involved rice flour and turmeric. Of course, my interest was piqued. So, I quickly read upon rice flour and discovered how incredibly easy it is to make. Of course, I was just about to order from them but this discovery alone has saved me some cash. Moral of the story:…


Aluminum-Free Deodorants and why you need one

June 13, 2016

Like every other girl, puberty came with responsibilities and having to use a deodorant was one of them. I never paid much mind to the deodorants I used until about two years ago when I started to live a little more consciously. I decided to try out the Crystal Body Deodorant Stick which was a very bad investment. It is basically an alum stone which should be moistened before application…


Benefits of clay masks for skin

May 22, 2016

Clay masks have become an all-time fave for me. I mostly incorporate them in the TLC (tender-loving care) sessions I occasionally give myself. So far, I have tried multani mitti, amla, rhassoul and bentonite clays for masks and the results have been amazing! Please don’t make me choose a fave! Please bear in mind that although clay masks could be for hair and face, I’m actually referring to the face…


Benefits of Jasmine Essential Oil

May 20, 2016

When I opened my first bottle of Jasmine oil, I knew I was in for a treat. I loved the flowery scent which overpowered and seized the atmosphere. This is possibly the best purchase I’ve made in recent times. Plus, I got it on sale for half the price. It doesn’t get any better than that. So, what is Jasmine Oil? What exactly makes it tick? Jasmine essential oil is…
