Top 5 Wellness Tips for Hippies

The term “dirty hippie” has little to no grip on reality. It didn’t have much of an effect on the hygiene approach of the 60s flower-children, those who switched back from post-war oils and SLS filled body-care/beauty products to organic and natural skin remedies and treatment infused with herbs and essential oils harnessing the gifts of mother earth.

A modern healthy hippie shouldn’t just focus on what to eat or what you wear. If you’re looking to clean up your wellness for a positive change in your life, these organic and natural remedies are exactly what you’re looking for!

1. At-Home Spa
Bringing a spa-inspired experience at home calls for a quality, natural facial mask. Treat yourself to a day of relaxation- light a scented candle and get into some cozy clothes to set the mood. There are plenty of herbs and organic ingredients to create your own DIY face mask, activated charcoal and bentonite clay do a great job.

Mix 4 capsules activated charcoal, ½ cup bentonite clay, 1 tablespoon oatmeal, 1 tablespoon green tea, 1 tablespoon hibiscus and 1 tablespoon rosehips in a glass or wooden bowl and using a non-metal utensil. Apply on your skin for 15-20 minutes for best results.

For a ready-made, just add water mask with all the benefits, try the Sea Goddess Face Mask to naturally exfoliate and rejuvenate your skin to get rid of any and all toxins and impurities.


2. Skin Drink
As a hippie, you’re always conscious of what products you use on a daily basis. You always "on the hunt" for Cruelty-free, high-quality ingredients that cause the least amount of harm to animals and the environment is a must.

To make your own body-loving lotion- combine 1/2 cup almond oil or jojoba oil, 1/4 cup coconut oil, 1/4 cup organic raw shea butter, and 1 tsp vitamin E oil in a glass bowl and melt it in the microwave for 30 seconds. Allow it to cool and apply on your skin. Store it in a small mason jar.

If you wish to save the hassle, get our deeply skin nourishing, infused with butter and oils Rosemary and Lavender Body Lotion it’ll prevent dry patches for hydrated skin. It seriously smells like a spring meadow, perfect skin treat after a long day before bedtime + Happy skin is always a bonus!


3. Mind-Mood Connection
If you love to travel around with minimal products, handmade soaps are a blend of both science and art that will make your cleansing experience worthwhile.

To concoct your own homemade soap from scratch, take:
1/2 cup castile soap liquid,
1/2 cup distilled water,
1 tsp vitamin E oil,
1 tsp sweet almond oil,
15 drops tea tree essential oil
5-10 drops lavender essential oil

Mix the ingredients together and store in a liquid soap dispenser. Please keep in mind that handmade soap takes 4-6 weeks to dry.

Alternatively, if you don’t want to wait that long try to induce peace of mind and integrate energy, using Patchouli connects your mind with your body. The rejuvenating aroma of the Artisan Soap will keep your skin healed and cleansed while your mood is uplifted. 


4. Love Your Face
Love is everything. It balances your life, ground you and allows you to grow old with content.
The same applies to your face! If you’re neglecting to cleanse and wash your face, you’re asking for blackheads, breakouts and premature wrinkles.

The oil cleansing method is a simpler and quicker way to penetrate through the epidermis and into the dermis layer of our skin, leaving it hydrated and smooth. Massage pure avocado oil onto your skin and hold a hot washcloth over your face for a couple minutes to open up your pores. This will reduce signs of aging, extremely dry skin, eczema, sun damage, and blemishes.

Add to that routine the Honey + Hemp organic face wash. Infused with organic ingredients that will absorb into the skin to keep it healthy, fresh and balanced.

5. Wrinkle-Free
Living as a hippie means a carefree lifestyle as a flower child with minimal fuss about the chaos of everyday life. Being free from stress about life doesn’t mean your skin will stay youthful and glowing forever. Using pure cold-pressed marula oil on your skin and eyes will keep your skin plump and hydrated.

Add to that our nourishing Rose + Sea Buckthorn under eye cream enriched with skin regenerative ingredients will help your skin stay wrinkle-free. These beneficial oils and butters will smooth away any fine lines and wrinkles, you’ll never look a day older!

These simple tips and tricks for a healthy wellness lifestyle are all about using safe and effective organic products. With ingredients that are locally sourced and free from toxins, our bodies don’t deserve anything less!

Imbolc for the Modern Witch
Imbolc for the Modern Witch

January 25, 2020

On February 1st, we move into one of the sweetest, purest Sabbats of the Witch’s calendar. Imbolc celebrates the near-end of the long Winter, bringing us towards the warmer part of the year, and celebrating the sprouting of new life from the Earth. The Wiccan tradition celebrates this as the strengthening of the Sun God, as he comes into his adulthood, and the Goddess is coming into her maidenhood once more, after birthing the God at Yule (yep, it’s convoluted and more confusing than your average family reunion).

Brigid, or Brighid, is the Irish triple Goddess of smithcraft, poetry and healing, who was worshipped as Goddess prior to the Christianisation of Ireland, and then sainted. Her origin story differs from Celtic pagan to Christian faiths, but everyone pretty much agrees that she is the Maiden, who blesses our crops and gives us sweet-smelling Spring flowers and the most joyful of all worldly creatures: tiny, dancing, bouncing lambs (insert love heart emoji eyes here). When I spent my first early February in Ireland with my partner’s family, I was amazed to see how seriously people took what they call St. Brigid’s Day. Everyone hung an item of clothing out of the window, and Brigid’s crosses popped up in the hands of children everywhere after making them at school.
