There’s something amazing about our scarf…

pink-green-cowl-scarfThere’s something amazing about our pink and green cowl scarf…it has a story. 

It was Saturday, October 29th, when we met Joede of Black Pearl Creations. We were neighbors at an event. As she was purchasing some of our skin care products, she shared a story with us. A story about her tenacity. A story about her greater appreciation for life. Because eight years ago, she received a grave diagnosis. She was diagnosed with aggressive Stage 3 breast cancer and her situation was dire. 

But now, eight years since that diagnosis, she continues to defy the odds. We recall some of our words to her that day and we repeat it for her and for everyone…”You go girl!” Your passion to continue to live, laugh, and love every moment of life is an inspiration.

We chose this scarf with purpose…it intertwined the colors green that reflects our logo and pink, a symbolic color for breast cancer awareness. Thank you for creating such beautiful work. It was our pleasure to meet you and we look forward to keeping in touch.

 

HEALTH & WELLNESS: Immunity Boosting

Did you indulge this holiday season? We did. When we’re on the road, it’s often difficult to eat right and stay healthy. We try to make the right food choices yet the selections are sometimes limited. So after the holidays, we refocus our diet by eating more organic fruits and vegetables and limiting our consumption of red meat and processed foods. We refocus to rebuild and restrengthen our body and our immune system.

To stay healthier this busy holiday season, two ingredients that we included more of in our diet are fresh ginger and garlic.

Ginger and garlic are touted for their immunity boosting qualities. Garlic is often revered for its antifungal and antibacterial benefits, and for its antioxidant and detoxifying abilities. Ginger, similarly lauded for its antibacterial and antioxidant qualities, is helpful in addressing digestive issues and inflammation.

To drink to better health…we created our ginger and garlic brew. Our organic Ginger and Garlic Peppermint Honey Herbal Tea has been our beverage of choice this holiday season. While it may not sound tasty, it’s delicious! Especially when sweetened with a dash of honey. We include peppermint for its minty flavor and since it’s also an immunity booster, aids in digestion and relieves nausea. And, honey, highly regarded for its antibacterial, antifungal, and anti-inflammatory benefits, is a delectable sweetener.

For our blend, we slice up a few organic garlic cloves and ginger root and steep them in boiling water with some peppermint tea leaves (or use a tea bag if that’s easier). Add honey to taste. It’s simple. It’s easy. And it’s great for the body!

We thank this herbal beverage for keeping us healthier this holiday season! So, we raise our teacups and toast to a healthier 2017!
