DETOX SEASON // Fall is for real food and skin food.

DETOX SEASON // Fall is for real food and skin food.

In Ayurvedic tradition spring and fall are the two seasons for cleansing because the weather isn’t too extreme. The wisdom of Ayurveda is based on intuition and you don’t need to know much more than that.

For many of us the summer is a time of letting go of routine, and even if you are eating your fair share of fresh raw fruits and vegetables in the summer- you may have also had a few late nights and drank a few two many cocktails. All in perfect balance of course! October is a wonderful time of year...


ENDLESS SUMMER // Always seeking the sun.

ENDLESS SUMMER // Always seeking the sun.

Here in the US summer is now on the way out. If you didn't get to spend it at the beach, or living poolside you might be wondering where those sunny summer days you were craving went. (We are kind of wondering where it went ourselves!)

HAIR CARE // What lies beneath.

Of all the skin conditions out there, flaky scalp might be one of the biggest taboos. Most of us are comfortable talking about zits, breakouts, dry skin, discoloration, stretch marks, etc. but what lies beneath the hair and lives on the scalp tends to stay hush hush. Scalp issues are embarrassing. 

But why? 

The reality is most of us have had some form of dandruff or scalp irritation in our lives. Although the problem is mostly cosmetic and virtually harmless to our health, it is a benign indicator as to what is going on inside your body. Don't freak out,...


KOKUM BUTTER // Nature's 'secret' beauty secret.

KOKUM BUTTER // Nature's 'secret' beauty secret.

Natural skincare is getting a lot of attention these days, and we are of course very happy about that. You don't have to be a wellness enthusiast to have heard of the benefits of coconut oil, cocoa butter, shea butter, or maybe even mango butter. But what about kokum butter? We're guessing you may not have heard of that one yet. 

We talk a lot about the benefits of coconut oil in Nucifera,  but the truth is that coconut oil is in equal portion to the delightfully emollient and fragrance free kokum butter in our formula.
