Join me in search of all things natural! I hope to inspire you to embrace the natural you in all areas in your life - we simply don't need all those man made chemicals in our products as we are lead to believe. Recognise the catchphrase "Because you are worth it?" Well, my catchphrase is "I am worth more than that!"

The Health Show
So, visited the Health Show in RDS last Sunday with friends. Spent way too much money than intended, but it's all good :) Didn't know what to expect as it was my first time, but reaaaaly happy with my purchases and decided to save for next time already, because I stopped myself of buying matcha (the best, I know, but so expensive!) and natural cosmetics (not using any at the moment. plus I'll replace the ones I have once I run out. You know, replace one by one.) They're by Benecos, and I need to research them more before I buy.
I bought some Nakd bars - the new ones are soooo good :) some essential oils, manuka honey (always good), lavera kids tooth gel without flouride - after my bid kid got flourosis I'll never get regular toothpaste for my little one!! Damn Irish water with added fluoride, why??
The purchase I was most excited about was Dr.Bronner's soap - after extensive research I chose it as a purest soap with million uses for it. I got a big bottle of it for 12€ so saved myself a few quid there. Once I got home I brushed my teeth with it (soappy but fine) and washing my hair with it (couldn't even put the brush in it) I knew it would be drying, but this? I didn't give up on it as a shampoo yet - I'll try a few more combos with this soap, like mixing it with coconut milk, aloe vera gel and even with regular shampoo if everything else fails.
I also made a concoction for cleaning - one part H2O, one part my homemade vinegar with lemon and half the amount of Dr.Bronners. Works well, natural, what more could you want?
