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!

January 2022 Monthly Horoscope
January 2022 Monthly Horoscope

January 01, 2022

There’s no doubt about it; 2021 was a year full of change and transformation for everyone. However, instead of continuing to live in the hard times that it brought, it’s finally time to say goodbye to the old and embrace change with the new year of 2022. With that said, we will be kicking off the new year lingering in the sign of the Capricorn, pushing many of the signs towards a renewal of creative energy and new beginnings, which is bound to bring a refreshing change into our lives. This will be happening alongside the influence of Jupiter, which will be moving through the sensitive Pisces. As the planet of expansion, Jupiter will inspire us to move beyond our restrictions and channel a deeper, more sentimental approach to life that could have us reflecting a lot on our emotions. As a result, this will likely have all the signs feeling a need to slow down and disconnect for a while, and honestly, some slow movement may not be such a bad idea right now. 


Aside from this, Venus also went into retrograde on December 19th, 2021, and will remain that way until January 29th, 2022. Since Venus is known to be the planet of love, when it is retrograde, energies can be a little uncertain for lovers. This could either stir communicational issues between partners or, surprisingly, pull partners closer. Either way, you’ll have to navigate the situation carefully, as all emotions, good and bad, are bound to be heightened. However, Venus isn’t the only planet going retrograde right now, as we will also be moving into Mercury retrograde again starting January 13th, which is bound to have the signs revisiting past emotional issues again. However, don’t see this as a burden, as this is actually an excellent opportunity to reflect on what energies we wish to take with us into the new year and which we want to leave behind and start making the necessary changes to make it happen. Lastly, we will then hit Aquarius season on January 20th, which will likely have the signs aligning more intimately with personal goals and values. 


As you can see, January 2022 is bound to be full of the energies of rebirth, new beginnings, and reflection as we work to embrace the energies of the year, learning to leave the problems of the past year behind us once and for all. However, to give you a better idea of what energy you can feel personally, in this article, we’re going to touch on the changes each Zodiac sign can expect throughout January and how you can better align yourself to truly make the most of it. Let’s get started.

December 31, 2021

It’s a new year and a new you Zodiac signs, and with so many cosmic changes happening around us right now, that saying has never rung so true. While 2021 was quite a powerful year for transition and change for all of us for a lot of different reasons, 2022 is predicted to help us start bringing those changes into fruition in a new light with an emphasis on alignment, empowerment, and forward movement. For this reason, many of the signs will likely find that their tolerance levels for an unfulfilling life will burst this year, and many changes are likely to take place in a number of areas of our lives as a result. 


With that said, to start, the year kicks off with a powerful retrograde in Venus carrying over from December 2021 onward until January 29th, 2022, which is bound to shake things up. Since Venus is known symbolically to be the planet of love, when it goes retrograde, energies can be a little uncertain for lovers. As a result, this could stir issues between partners or, potentially, pull partners closer. Either way, you’ll have to navigate the situation carefully, as a lot of emotional change and reflection are bound to be taking place at this time. To follow, Mercury will also be going into retrograde on January 14th, heightening our need to reflect and let go of negative aspects of our lives. With so many emotions to think over at this time, this could potentially stir up impatience and emotional frustration within all signs that must be navigated carefully in order to avoid impulsive decision making. Aside from this, Saturn will be getting cozy in the sign of the Aquarius this year, highlighting the energies of hard work, success, luck, and determination, likely giving the signs a much-needed boost into action on many professional and creative endeavors with the potential to bring a possible career change. This will be happening alongside Jupiter, which will be making way through the Pisces and the Aries this year, highlighting expansion, luck, and new beginnings as one of the key themes for all of the signs this year. To top it all off, we will also be taken through another powerful retrograde by Mars at the end of October, which will likely push the signs to re-examine their life and their choices, especially related to career work, allowing plenty of room for change and transition to take place.


Overall, while these are only a few of the major energetic highlights of the year, all around, this will likely be a powerful year of transformation in many different ways. However, to give you a better idea of what the year of 2022 may hold for your Zodiac sign, here’s is an overview of some of the energies that are likely to be felt by the Zodiac signs this new year and what each sign can do to try to make the most of them.
