BAMBOO PLANT BASED FEMALE HYGIENE PADS
This really got me questioning the production and ethical integrity behind the mainstream female hygiene products. They are mass-produced, heavily marketed, and cheaply made out of bleached rayon and plastics. Cotton is the most heavily pesticide sprayed crop. Why would we want to use that?
I love women to be empowered and I believe in a holistic clinical approach to female health and gynecology.
HOW IMPORTANT IS IT USE ORGANIC TAMPONS, CONDOMS, AND LUBRICANTS?
It’s so important to use organic products in and around our bodies, especially delicate vaginal mucosa. Studies show that women who eat organic foods have a 90 percent reduction in pesticide residues in their blood. While we certainly don’t eat tampons, the chemicals within them absorb into our bodies and bloodstreams via vaginal mucosa.
Bamboo pads are obviously a healthier and safer option!
Biodegradable Eco Friendly Sustainably grown Bamboo based womens hygiene pads.
What is something that every woman has to endure in her lifetime? Menstruation. On average, a woman will have her period once a month, for about five days, for around 40 years of her life. During this time, she’ll need to use various products to stay clean and fresh.
This is why a Natural product like Bamboo Babe is extremely crucial to use longterm for womens health and the earth.
Bamboo is actually a grass that it naturally hypoallergenic and antibacterial.
When it comes to feminine hygiene and womens health and wellbeing this green product is an intelligent innovation. As a fact, Bamboo is more absorbent than cotton! This makes this product highly functional as Bamboo grows without any chemical fertilisers or pesticides.
If the average women uses about 17,000 pads or tampons during her entire menstruation lifetime, and you multiply that by 3.5 billion women in the world! WOW!
Why pads are a healthier and safer option than Tampons
Tampon use has the potential to change vaginal microflora
If abnormal bacteria are harboured in the vagina, menstrual blood which is accumulated inside the vagina above and within a tampon can act as a culture medium allowing micro-organisms to multiply, thereby promoting infection.
Another common concern is Toxic Shock Syndrome
Toxic shock syndrome (TSS) is a rare and potentially life-threatening illness, believed to be caused by infection with particular bacteria including Staphylococcus aureus and Streptococcus pyogenes. Menstruating women are most susceptible and it is thought that the infection is associated with tampon use.
The underlying mechanisms are not fully understood, but one theory is that the bacteria naturally present in the vagina can overpopulate in the presence of a blood-soaked tampon. However, one-third of menstruating women who develop toxic shock syndrome are found to have Staphylococcal bacteria already present in their vaginas.
The toxin produced by the bacteria that causes toxic shock syndrome, rather than the presence of the bacteria themselves. Staphylococcus aureus is a common type of bacterium that lives on the skin and inside the nose.
In most cases, it is harmless. However, it can cause a wide range of infections if it gains access to deeper tissue and the blood stream. For toxic shock syndrome to occur, particular strains of the bacteria must first overpopulate and produce large amounts of the toxic shock syndrome toxin as a by-product. Then, the toxin has to enter the bloodstream.

SUPPLE SKIN CO
After all, our skin is an outer glow of our inner health and beauty, and how we care for it from the outside, as well as the inside, is SO important.
The good news is that, people are waking up and are aware of the green movement, now more than ever we are seeing skincare product manufacturers making a difference to avoid using toxic ingredients and chemicals in their skincare products.
This is why I support local Aussie brands like Supple Skin Co. A Hemp skin perfecting serum.
I think this is the way of the future as more people are conscious of using natural and eco friendly products. I heavily believe in reducing your toxic load, and one of the many concerns I have with most commercial, popular brands of skincare products is they contain toxic ingredients and petroleum product derivatives that can both contribute to toxicity. Your skin is an organ through which chemicals are absorbed.

KARMIC COLD PRESSED CLEANSE REVIEW
Fruit and Veggies are the most life enhancing food we can put in our bodies…. They are high in water with vital amino acids, minerals and vitamins that help to dissolve toxic substances and cleanse our tissues and system.
The reason I decided to complete this cleanse was because lately, I have been feeling really sluggish and not as clear and sparkly as usual. Not only was my energy level at an all time low, I have been feeling stressed and run down which has caused me to hold on to water retention, feel acidic and bloated and honestly, I’m over drinking alcohol and my major addiction to caffeine. So, its time for a reset. I am intuitive with my body and I was ready for a detox! The juice cleanse I did focused on GUT Health and each juice is Organic and has less than 5% fructose.
I truly LOVE to Juice fast 2 times or more a year as a way to flood my system with nutrient dense love!!!
I believe Nutrition is healing and a way to reverse damage and eliminate toxins to supercharge the healing process of body love for an alkaline body that feels light, is pure and your beauty glows from within!!! My fav juice base is celery which is loaded with potassium, folic acid, magnesium, calcium, iron, phosphorus and essential amino acids. On top of all that, celery is one of the most alkaline things you can put in your body.
Juice cleansing floods the bod with super active absorbable vitamins and nutrition so the whole body system can rest and rejuvenate naturally!!! Yum! Cleanse, repair and replenish.
Firstly what is important to look out for when choosing the best quality juice cleanse is the quality of machinery used.
Cold pressed juice VS non Cold pressed juice.
1. Cold pressed Juice
Cold Pressed is better for you as they have way more nutritional benefits. They gently press the fruit and veg as opposed to being heated up and massacred. When there is no heat there is less oxidisation and the minerals, vitamins and enzymes stay alive. This supports the body with repairing muscles, boosting the immune system and balancing acidic levels.
Karmic Cold Pressed juice uses the best quality machinery.
2. Centrifugal Juice Extractors
The problem with centrifugal juicers is that the fast-spinning metal blade generates heat, which destroys some of the enzymes in the fruits and vegetables you’re juicing. The heat also oxidizes those nutrients, rendering less nutritious juice than a cold-press juicer.

What to ask for: Semi permanent lip tattoo. Replacing the lip’s lost border gives a more youthful appearance, re-defining natural lip contour for a more perfect pout! It’s also a great way to create the illusion of a fuller pout without injections, and correct proportion to balance the lips while leaving a beautiful hue so you don’t need lipstick.
Details: There are a range of colours to chose which are vegan, organic and manufactured with 30 years experience in Germany. The colours contain no heavy metals which is a common ingredient in pigments, many are harmful or toxic, as they can not be broken down in the body. No PAH – “Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons” (in many pigments), slightly water-soluble, numerous PAHs have been proven to be carcinogenic. No NDELA – “Nitrosodiethanolamine” Nitrosamines are a reactive product of nitrite and amines (as in proteins) Proven to have a strong carcinogenic effect. They use LONG-TIME-LINER® pigments. They are mineral based pigments that have low allergy and high colour stability.
What to expect: Semi-permanent makeup is a form of cosmetic tattooing. It involves the controlled incorporation of colour pigments into the dermis layer of the skin, between the epidermis and subcutaneous tissue. Basically, it helps improve appearance by giving definition to the lips. During the first treatment they draw your lips before the procedure to determine the colour and define your lip in the ideal shape to ensure symmetry, harmony and balance to accentuate your natural beauty. They numb your lips by using a medical grade topical anaesthetic is applied prior to the treatment and throughout the process to minimise discomfort. Two weeks later I went for my next session to tweak and add extra colour and outline depth to my lips.
Does it hurt?: The short answer is no. There is a vibrating sensation and medical grade anaesthetic is used. Expect tenderness afterwards, and swelling but aftercare is minimal. The night of the treatment I was able to go to an event, my lips were swollen, they looked pretty and the colour was bright. I used an icepack directly after the session. Three days later my lips were a little dry so I kept applying the Bepanthen Antiseptic, the Vitamin A + Vitamin D Ointment and refrained from touching or peeling the lips.
Every day my lips look more and more beautiful! It is the best thing I have done in Beauty!
Price: A Lip Tint Tattoo with Anthea Palmer is $1275 for 2 x 2.5 hour treatments 2 weeks apart.
