What is Patchouli?

Patchouli is what we use for one of our HBN Hair and Body all natural soaps! And were does it come from?

Patchouli is a species of plant from the family Lamiaceae, commonly called the “mint” or “deadnettle” family. The plant grows as a bushy herb, with erect stems reaching around 75 centimetres in height and bearing small, pale pink-white flowers. It is native to the tropical regions of Asia.

Dear Yoga Newbies,

Walking into your first yoga class can be an intimidating prospect. You might feel like an outsider entering into a club, but yoga is for anyone interested. When you are considering your first class, just know that chances are you are not the only first-timer, and everyone in the class you are attending was at one time experiencing their first class as well.

Yoga is a very old practice and there are definitely some guidelines and expectations of those practicing. Knowing a few things before you attend a class is helpful, and it may even soothe some of that anxiety.

Here are some things to know before you go:

You Don’t Need to be Flexible
You heard that right. Many people stay away from trying yoga because they feel that they are not flexible enough. But that is exactly why you should give yoga a try. You learn in the class how to stretch your body in ways that are safe and effective.

Sanskrit
In most yoga practices, it is tradition to use Sanskrit, the universal language of yoga, to identify each pose. But fret not, you do not need to know Sanskrit to practice yoga. Instructors will most often call out both the Sanskrit and English name for each pose.

No Eating Before Class
You will not be asked when you had your last meal when you attend a class, but it is advised that you do not eat prior to class because a full stomach does not mix well with physical activity. The general rule is nothing too substantial for 60-90 minutes before practice.

No Shoes or Socks
Of course, you are fine to wear your shoes to yoga, but most studios will have cubbies, lockers, or a designated spot for leaving your shoes and socks before entering into the yoga studio.

Mats/Towels
Most studios have mats and towels to rent or use, and this may be the way to go for your first few classes to make sure yoga is right for you before you invest in your own.

Fitted Clothes
You want to wear something fitted that has the ability to stretch as you move through your practice. There is no standard outfit, but you do not want to wear something that is too loose that will end up slipping up as you move through your poses.

Bring Water
Always bring a water bottle that has a lid that can close tightly. Most yoga studios will allow yogis to bring their closed beverages into the class to hydrate throughout the practice.

All Classes Are Different
There are many different styles of yoga. Some classes hold poses while others practice more continuous flow movements, and some instructors offer more fast-paced classes, while others are slower and more meditative. Some classes are even heated, so be sure to ask questions before deciding on what class is best for you. Many studios offer an introductory class, which is a great way to learn some basic postures.

One very common pose that you’ve maybe even heard of is Downward Facing Dog. It is used in most yoga practices, so it is a good one to know.

Maybe give this one a try before class! Downward Dog stretches and strengthens the entire body.

How to do it:
-Come onto all fours with your wrists under your shoulders and knees under your hips.
-Tuck under your toes and lift your hips up off the floor as you draw them up at back towards your heels.
-Keep your knees slightly bent if your hamstrings are tight, otherwise try and straighten out your legs while keeping your hips back and heels reaching towards your mat.
-Walk your hands forward to give yourself more length if you need to.
-Press firmly through your palms and rotate the inner elbows towards each other.
-Hollow out the abdominals and keep engaging your legs to keep the torso moving back towards the thighs.
-Hold for 5-8 breaths before dropping back to hands and knees to rest.

Dear Friends,

Did you know that most skincare products on the market are loaded with ingredients that are actually toxic to your skin and body?

It’s true. Artificial ingredients and chemicals are used to have a positive effect on the skin. However those positive effects are often temporary, yet the negative effects last long term because the toxic ingredients are absorbed by the skin and build up within the body.

Thankfully, there are many natural and inexpensive options out there, and most of them can be found in your pantry!

Below, are some skincare alternatives for healthy, beautiful skin. Just pick your skin type, and try adding these natural products to your beauty routine.

Oily Skin
Exfoliating- Equal parts sea salt and oil to create a natural scrub to brighten the skin. Gently apply in a circular motion, rinse with warm water, and pat dry.
Cleansing – Equal parts castor oil and olive oil. Massage in and wipe off with a warm cloth.
Toning – A tablespoon of apple cider vinegar in a cup of water kept cool in the refrigerator to splash on the face.
Moisturizing – May not be necessary for oily skin. But if needed, a thin coat of coconut oil will work great.

Normal/Combination Skin
Exfoliating – Equal parts sugar (white or brown) and olive oil. Gently apply in a circular motion, rinse with warm water and pat dry.
Cleansing – A mix of 1/4 castor oil and ¾ oil (olive or almond). Massage in and wipe off with a warm cloth.
Toning – A tablespoon of apple cider vinegar in a cup of water kept cool in the refrigerator to splash on the face.
Moisturizing – If needed, a thin coat of coconut oil will work great.

Dry Skin
Exfoliating – Often not necessary for this skin type, but lightly rubbing a dry washcloth in circular motions can work if needed.
Cleansing – A mix of teaspoon of castor oil in 1/4 cup of another oil like olive or almond). Massage in and wipe off with warm cloth.
Toning – A tablespoon of apple cider vinegar in a cup of water kept cool in the refrigerator to splash on the face.
Moisturizing – Plain, organic shea butter massaged into the face and neck.

Try this simple banana mask for glowing, soft, and toned skin:

-Mash up one ripe banana into a smooth paste
-Apply it to your face and neck.
-Let it set for 10 to 20 minutes
-Rinse it off with cold water.

You can also add a little plain yogurt or honey to this one for more acne prone skin.

Dear Friends,

Were you aware that the average American consumes about 152 pounds of sugar a year! That breaks down to roughly 22 teaspoons a day for each person in America.

High sugar intake has been directly related to obesity, type 2 diabetes, dementia, depression, ADHD, acne, heart disease, infertility, and impotence.

The sad truth is that sugar addiction is not an emotional disorder – sugar cravings are a biological disorder, fueled by the body’s hormones and neurotransmitters. This often leads to uncontrolled eating, which in turn gives cause to the reason why nearly 70 percent of Americans are considered overweight.

Aside from the toll sugar takes on your health, here are some other ways sugar affects you negatively:

Motivation
Sugar affects motivation by reducing dopamine, the motivation neurochemical in your brain.

Brain Fog
Sugar causes brain fog by spiking the hormone insulin, which gives you the rush after you eat sugar. The spike, then, leads to a crash as your insulin plummets.

Insatiability
Consuming sugar only provides temporary satisfaction, which can lead to overeating as we try to satiate by eating more.

Teeth Health
High sugar consumption causes tooth decay.

Now that you have read some of the scary truths about sugar consumption, the best way to see for yourself the effect sugar is having on your body and mind is to try cutting it out for at least 10 days.

Before you start a detox, it is a good idea to have a plan in place, because the cravings will be shockingly strong for the first few days. Here are some steps to follow to help get you ready:

Get in the Right Mindset
Prepare yourself by making the decision to clear your body of sugar. This is important because you won’t have success if you don’t set your mind to it.

Eat a Healthy Diet
Focus on eating healthy carbs, proteins, and fats. Eating healthily will help you feel better as your body starts its detox.

Build New Routines
It is hard to stop any addictive behavior cold turkey, so to soften the withdraw it is best to approach for your detox by gearing up with small changes to your routine, such as cutting cream and sugar from your morning coffee or cutting down on any beverages with sugar throughout the day.

Throw Out the Sugar
Get rid of all the candies and sweets you have in your pantry. And be sure to read those ingredient lists!
