Whether you’re vegan, vegetarian or a non-exclusionary eater, adding distinctly nutty and refreshing almond milk to your diet is a simple way to load up on essential nutrients and trace minerals that your body (including your skin) needs.  The organic store bought versions are a perfectly fine option (just be sure to read the labels for sweeteners, additives and preservatives), but nothing compares to freshly made almond milk that hasn’t been sitting on a shelf.

I can already feel it. My shoulders are creeping up into my ears, I’m getting tension headaches and I’m having trouble sleeping. All of that, combined with the fact that my region is covered in snow, can only mean one thing: The holiday season is upon us.

DIY christmas wreaths

Wreath's are a long time tradition dating back to many, many centuries ago. There is much symbolism in such a lovely decorated object of nature. The Holidays and the Winter season is a great time to bring nature back to your home where you can. As you can see in the photos, I rejoice in simple, festive winter decor. I decided this year to create my own universal designed winter wreath. Being an Eco Diva at heart, I believe less is more and love to use all natural materials to bring my home to life in the darkest and coldest time of year! Today I bring to you this easy, DIY tutorial to make your own Eucalyptus and Pine Winter wreath! I chose Eucalyptus because I love the natural healing, cleansing and purity properties this plant brings. Plus the little branch-blossoms look so delightfully holiday-ish, like tiny mistletoe. Eucalyptus also dries out beautifully. I used fresh eucalyptus and over time it will dry out and still look so pretty. The pine is fragrantly uplifting and adds that extra winter season flair. The eucalyptus leaves and pine needles are framed by dried willow branches which are so imperfectly perfect in form... What could be more easy and simple than an natural and easy do it yourself winter decor project? Hang your wreath over your window or adorn your front door, you just can’t go wrong. So now for the tutorial...

Confessions Of An Eco Diva: My Morning Ritual, Abhyanga

  
  
  
Abhyanga

This morning ritual is called Abhyanga in Sanskrit. Its part of an ancient Indian healing system called Ayurveda. Ayus meaning life and Veda meaning wisdom. I was first exposed to this consciousness-based system after a doctor prescribed sojourn to the Chopra center five years ago.  Since then I have incorporated many of their rituals into my life.  I wish I could say I was a strict adherent to every aspect of this awesome lifestyle but I am a work in progress and being a bit of a diva I’ve made some modifications to suit my personal preferences.
