It is almost impossible to have healthy skin and hair without also incorporating a healthy nutritional component to your routine.  Superfoods definitely add a large group of nutrients to your body in one dose.  One of the most popular superfoods out there is spirulina. Below is a great article which delves into all the benefits that Spirulina has to offer. Leave a comment and let me know what you think 🙂

If you’ve spent any time reading my blog post for the past 5 years, you know that I believe very strongly that nutrition plays a very important role in caring for your beautiful black skin.

So today I thought we’d take a look at Spirulina. It’s being marketed as the next great superfood. Since it’s been on the planet for thousands of years, why now? Could it be that in man’s arrogance, he actually thinks he’s discovered something new, again. With that being said …

Let’s talk about Spirulina … What is it?

Imagine … you come across a plant that’s been said to nourish your body, provide you with most of the protein you need to live, it can prevent sniffling and sneezing from allergies, reinforce your immune system, help control your blood pressure and cholesterol And help protect you from cancer. Yes, this is what they’re saying about spirulina.

Spirulina is not the average plant found in your garden. It’s often referred to as the miracle plant. It’s actually blue green algae that’s found in bodies of warm fresh water.

One of the oldest life forms on earth, Spirulina cells contain no nucleus and their walls are soft. Why is this important? Because it allows for very easy and complete digestion of the nutrients in Spirulina. Did you know that Spirulina was considered a food staple for certain people for centuries. It’s said that the Mayans and Aztecs consumed Spirulina and actually used it as a form of trade goods.

Essential oils are a great addition to your natural hair and skin regimen.  They have great health benefits not just from an aromatherapy standpoint, but also from being applied to the hair and skin directly via carrier oils or creams.  Below is a great article breaking down the benefits of essential oils as well as how to properly use them.  Leave a comment and let me know what you think 🙂

When you think of essential oils, you probably think of how great they smell or don’t smell for that matter. Although they are used to create great smelling perfumes, most essential oils don’t have a perfume type of aroma.

Essential oils are becoming an integral part of alternative modalities when it comes to health, skin and hair challenges. I’m sure you’re familiar with the basic essential oils such as Lavender, Peppermint, Tea Tree, Rose, Eucalyptus … you get the idea. What does this mean for you? For starters, you can use essential oils for your beauty, hair and health care needs.

For skin health:

Some of the best essential oils for skin health are Lavender, Rose, Jasmine and Geranium. In your cleansers, moisturizers, toners and serums by using essential oils, you can create products for yourself that you know are pure and good for you.

Lavender is a wonderful essential oil for minor burns. It can often help you prevent blisters and scars when used “neat” ( applied straight) on your skin.
