Pai Skincare

Pai Skincare is another organic skin care line definitely worth trying. Sarah Brown founded this company after becoming fed up with unshakable skin allergies. When doctors insisted the only treatment was masking her issues with numerous medications, she decided to quit her job and develop a plant-based line free of chemicals – Pai was born! Since 60% of beauty products are absorbed into your body  it naturally makes sense that skin care is ultra important when it comes to finding the source of health issues, especially ones affecting your skin.

So far I have tried Pai’s Avocado & Jojoba Hydrating Day Cream. I love it – it’s super hydrating (just like you would expect), has a very light scent (definitely plant-like) and absorbs really nicely (no greasy look after application).  Pai is a UK company and is not yet easily found across the US, but you can always purchase online or check out the full list of carriers worldwide!

(Personally, I don’t discriminate between organic and non-organic wines, but this site has some good info)

Jasmine, Lemongrass & Hibiscus!

I recently discovered TIZANE beverages at the Green Festival (www.greenfestivals.org) in Washington, DC.  These delicious drinks are 100% organic, caffeine-free, and truly taste home-made! They come in three interesting flavors – Jasmine, Lemon Grass and Hibiscus (this one was my favorite).  All three flavors are only about 60-80 calories per bottle!

These tasty blends also free of artificial colors, flavors and preservatives. Personally, I think these drinks have the perfect amount of sweetness, which is derived from the nectar of the blue agave plant. A great thing about this sweetner of choice is the fact that it’s a low glycemic index food. TIZANE also never uses concentrates or powders to create their botanical blends.

Unfortuantely, these yummy and natural thirst-quenchers are not so widely available just yet so if you are lucky enough to come across them I would highly suggest you give them a try!
