On Celebration

The soulful, sun filled days of Summer are upon us and in the spirit of the season our Ritual Pedicure for July and August is about CELEBRATION 

The elements of the Celebration Ritual Pedicure inspire an abundance of spirit and joy as well as feelings of appreciation and a sense of fulfillment in all areas of one’s life.

Citrine –  A stone carrying the energy of the sun.  Citrine’s energy is warm and comforting, energizing and life giving. It stimulates the chakras like the sunlight of summer and its frequency awakens creativity and imagination. With its pure yellow energy, Citrine encourages fullness of life, fresh beginnings and new pursuits. 

Green Jade – An abundance stone associated with the heart chakra.  Green jade represents the flow of Divine energy into the reality of one’s life [Ahsian, pp 210] . 

 The verdant shades of green jade are associated with growth and vitality.   Jade energy reminds us to smell the flowers, cherish the ones we love, and to share our heart with others so we may relish in the abundance in and around us all. 

Essential oil of Geranium – The positive, uplifting scent of geranium essential oil is said to calm the mind and restore emotional balance while ironing out irrationality and discontent.  The gentle, kind quality of geranium essential oil reminds one to take a moment to celebrate all that is. 

Lotus Wei Wild Abundance Flower Essence – The essences of peony, jasmine, gardenia and white water lily help one celebrate the divine beauty, abundance and magic in everyday life.

Bathing is an easy way to gift yourself a blissful Time Out.  Salt baths (Epsom and Sea Salts are among our favorites) infuse the body with Magnesium and other vital minerals which help to soothe sore muscles, encourage better sleep and detoxify the body.

On why to choose non toxic nail polish

 

Why should you choose non toxic nail polish? Why not is really the question.  Traditional nail polish is filled with chemicals that have been shown to be hazardous to your health because of  links to things from skin irritation to cancers.  At minimum these harmful chemicals can cause dryness and weakening of the nails.  These aren’t compromises you should have to make when healthy, beautiful nails are what you’re after.

The top three offenders, known as the “toxic trio” are Formaldehyde, Toluene and Dibutyl Phthalate (DBP).  Formaldehyde, traditionally used to embalm dead bodies is a known carcinogen.  Toluene, a petroleum/coal tar derived chemical is known to be harmful to the nervous system, has been linked to impaired human reproduction, impaired breathing and nausea.  DBP has been shown to affect the reproductive system and has been linked to cancer and birth defects. And though a layer or two of polish may not necessarily cause these reactions it is the constant exposure and absorption over years of use that is the concern.  The good news is that the “toxic trio” are being removed from many polish brands..so hoorah! But buyer beware: they still exist in a lot of nail polishes so read the ingredient list.

To go a step further some nail polish brands have removed formaldehyde resin- a less toxic derivative of formaldehyde, Camphor – a known neurotoxin,  Triphenyl Phosphate (TPHP) – which research suggests can affect hormones, reproduction, metabolism and development, Ethyl Tosylamid – which has raised concern over antibiotic resistance, and Xylene – a known allergen and possible carcinogen.

So progress is being made!  Let’s support the thoughtful and innovative brands who make amazing products which allow us to experience beauty and healthy choices simultaneoulsy.  Beauty without compromise.

Our favourite polishes come from tenoverten (8 free) and Deborah Lippmann (7 free).  These vegan and cruelty free polishes paint like a dream, are as durable as any other polish we’ve tried and come in so many beautiful colours you won’t even know what you’re missing.
