Used to hate it in my childhood (don't ask me why!!) and now I totally love it.
I love all the aromas, the colors, the texture of Mama Honey.
I only buy organic and raw and please pay attention to that cause most honey in the supermarket is not raw anymore. And Mama Honey that has been heated (for whatever reason, to pour it or to make it more beautiful, to controlled crystalize it or to change it's color..) is not so good for you anymore. Old Ayurveda already said that and I was surprised to read about it in my first Ayurvedic book. Now the science is also backing this up and I kinda had withdraw reactions from my old tea with lemon and honey for a long time..
I know , I know, the heated non-organic variant is everywhere - and the original honey is much more expensive but yeah, maybe ask yourself why that might be? When the only thing they'd had to do it put it in jar and sell it? Could it be that they put something else in the honey to make it cheaper? I'm just sayin'..
april's shine: day 5, dry brushing
Today I was inspired to talk to you about dry brushing.
I use a big douche brush, with natural powerful hairs (it has to brush, not caress:-D) and with a long handle (that's how you get to some places, even if you did not go to yoga for a while..).
I put a few drops of lavender essential oil (use whatever you fancy) on one of the hands (left in my case) and I first brush my palm until the oil dissolves in and between the hairs of the brush.
With that, I brush my whole body (naked, please do not attempt this fully clothed).
I begin with the hand on both sides, going in the direction of the heart.
After my arms, I do the torso - also in the direction of the heart.
I do the front first and than the back.
I end it with the legs, from the toes up and then the buttocks:-)
